SPLC Slammed in Montgomery Advertiser


Once again the SPLC is slammed in their own local paper.

From Montgomery Advertiser…

The Southern Poverty Law Center has long outlived its usefulness. What was once a noble organization dedicated to protecting civil rights has now become nothing more than a far-left echo chamber.

For example, during a recent appearance on MSNBC, the SPLC’s Mark Potok implied that Joseph Stack, the perpetrator of the suicide attack on the IRS building in Austin, may have been linked to the “radical right.” What absolute nonsense.

Even an analyst from an organization without the SPLC’s $150 million endowment could figure out that someone who quotes Lenin, hates George Bush, is anti-capitalist and pro-socialized medicine is probably not a right-winger.

Potok mentioned that the SPLC didn’t have a file on Stack. I wonder why? Probably for the same reason they don’t have a file on Amy Bishop, the University of Alabama in Huntsville professor charged with murdering three of her co-workers. As an avowed leftist who was obsessed with Obama, she just didn’t fit their profile of what a violent wacko should be (i.e. a conservative good ol’ boy Republican).

In fact, the SPLC has yet to even comment on the Huntsville massacre, despite the fact that all of the victims were minorities. Amy Bishop killed or wounded every minority member of the UAH biology department faculty. And yet the SPLC, an organization ostensibly dedicated to protecting minority rights, doesn’t give this violent racial incident one mention on its Web site.

Apparently, this particular senseless tragedy just doesn’t fit with its agenda.
