Maybe it’s Time to Call The Southern Poverty Law Center a Hate Group

Because according to reports, it was the uncivil discourse found on its website that incited Floyd Lee Corkins to attempt a mass shooting at the Family Research Council, last August.

He told the FBI that he wanted to kill anti-gay targets and went to the law center’s website for ideas. At a court hearing where his comments to the FBI were revealed, he said that he intended to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.”

In August 2012, Corkins targeted the Family Research Council offices in Washington DC. He shot the group’s security guard in the arm before the guard managed to disarm him. At the time, Corkins had the names and addresses of “four socially conservative organizations” on him.

As you remember,  this is almost the same thing the left accused Sarah Palin of doing in January, 2011 because she posted a congressional district map with crosshairs on her Facebook page – supposedly giving mass shooter, Jared Loughner ideas.

But whereas any fool could see that hers was strictly a map showing districts she wanted Republicans to win – the SPLC has viciously defamed  Christian groups for supporting  biblical teaching in regards to homosexuality.

Via KeyWiki, in November of 2010, SPLC added several mainstream evangelical organizations to their list of “hate” groups.

From Citizenlink:

Just before Thanksgiving, the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) came out with a report labeling the Family Research Council (FRC), the American Family Association and other family advocates as “hate” groups because of their stand for marriage.
“This is a deliberately timed smear campaign by the SPLC. The Left is losing the debate over ideas and the direction of public policy, so all that is left for them is character assassination. It’s a sad day in America when we cannot, with integrity, have a legitimate discussion over policy issues that are being considered by Congress, legislatures and the courts without resorting to juvenile tactics of name calling.”

From The National Prayer Network:

SPLC’s 10-page attack was distributed to 55,000 police officers in America. Called 18 Anti-Gay Groups and Their Propaganda, it encourages police to especially watch the hateful, violence-inciting propaganda from Christian/conservative “watchdog” organizations. These include the American Family Association, Concerned Women for America, Family Research Council, Coral Ridge Ministries, Liberty Council, and Traditional Values Coalition.

According to Dr. Gary Cass, who is affiliated with the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, “To say that anybody who has a principled objection to homosexuality [and warns of] the impact that that sinful lifestyle has on individuals and on society is somehow morally equivalent to overt racism and violence is absolutely defamatory.” [4]

It’s not only defamatory, but as we now know, it incites violence.


This is just too rich…

Via Ace….“Oh, is it unfair to call Floyd Corkins the SPLC’s Pet Assassin?”

The Other McCain: Hate Kills: Left’s Demonization of Conservative Group Inspired Shooter:

Guess what? The Southern Poverty Law Center — which did much to demonize the Family Research Center by listing them as a “hate” group — is embraced as a valuable partner by Eric Holder’s Justice Department. So, in effect, the Obama administration has given its imprimatur of approval to this terrorism against conservatives.

  1. Hate is SPLC’s bread and butter. Without Hate they get no money. The more Hate they can “show” the more money they get. Why else would they count local chapters of groups as separate groups? Why else would they label anyone that doesn’t follow their “progressive” agenda a Hate group?


  2. The SPLC has long been suspected of having communist ties and a recent Article from Atlas Shrug seems to have numerous references to their tawdry past and recent ties. This article is well worth the time to review. There should be not doubt about the SPLC and Morris Dees, they have long been a Hate Organization. Just maybe their past is catching up with them now. Numerous external links and references in this article.

    Emails Expose Collusion at Highest Levels between Department of Justice and Communist SPLC:

    DoJ email to Morris Dees: July 23, 2012 –

    “I will pick you [Morris Dees] up at the airport July 30. Would you go out to dinner with my wife and me and our two teenage daughters that first night? The girls need some inspiration from a master of inspiration.”

    This is a jawdropper.

    The communists over at the Southern Poverty Law Center are among the gravest threats to freedom in the United States, and are named as such in the AFDI Threats to Freedom Index. The enemedia eagerly laps up and repeats their designation of pro-freedom groups as “hate groups,” and uses this designation as a propaganda tool to demonize and discredit us. But here is an excellent expose that shows what these subversives are really all about.

    Before the collapse of the Soviet Union, the SPLC was designated as a Communist front. It was essentially run by a couple, Anne and Carl Braden, who were CPUSA members. They had been identified in sworn testimony, and they made no attempt to deny the allegations. They would be proud that their legacy remains intact — their “heirs,” that is, destroyers and America-haters — continue the work to subvert, destroy America.

    Atlas commenter Bethesda Dog: “The SPLC has been exposed as a shake-down money-raising con dreamed up by Morris Dees. The staff has inflated salaries, and they are always on the lookout for the next big thing they can target in order to continue scaring their donors. Sooner or later, their donors will die off, or realize they’ve been had. But then they’ll just start tapping money from the Arab oil countries and their allies. Inexhaustible supply of funds to advance sharia. They should be known as the Sharia Promoting Law Center.”

  3. Apparently you have forgotten that Jim David Adkisson murdered liberals inspired by anti-liberal writings. His manifesto: says: “Who I wanted to kill was every Democrat in the Senate and House, the 100 people in Bernard Goldberg’s book” (“100 People Who Are Screwing Up America”).

    After his arrest, police found the following anti-liberal books in his home:

    “Liberalism Is A Mental Health Disorder” – Michael Savage
    “The O’Reilly Factor” – Bill O’Reilly
    “Let Freedom Ring” – Sean Hannity


  4. Yes, yes – of course! But then – we already knew that at least a couple of those from that list were haters because the SPLC has told us so! Repeatedly.
    The SPLC is a Hate group. They inspire hate.
    How do you like it when the shoe is on the other foot, drone?


  5. And since you dislike drones, let me state plainly that I have no sympathy whatsoever for the nutcase who attacked the Family Research Council. Similarly, I have no problem acknowledging that his motivations were leftist.


  6. No, I agree with you completely – free speech can be dangerous – that’s why we must do something about the hate at the SPLC! Their hate-site will probably inspire more of these incidents..


  7. Well Deb, that begs the question, MUST we also do something about inflammatory right wing claims?

    Don’t forget, Glenn Beck inspired Byron Williams to plan an attack on the Tides Foundation and the ACLU. Apart from their politics, is there any difference between him and Corkins? Both were influenced by outside sources.


  8. Feeling much better now that I changed my diaper and switched the cucumber I was sitting on. I actually do have sympathy for Floyd Lee Corkins, he looks like my boyfriend lil Bear. We volunteer at the local chapter of the of LGBT. Anyway, you right-wingers/tea-bagg/ering deserve whatever is done to you.


  9. See you tea-baggers are at it again. America would be so much better without any of you on the right or that darn Constitution. Who needs freedom of speech! We on the left can say whatever we want, the president is our daddy and daddy is 0bama. As soon as we shut you up and disarm you radicals then we can get to work on a new America, a new Bill of Rights, a new list of who gets what…..From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs![

  15. Calling groups with whom you do not agree haters is the SPLC game. We need a better one It might be that by the SPLC standards, suich as they are, the SPLC would be deemed a hate group.

    It so much that the SPLC engages in hate. Rather that engage in a lusty for money. The more groups they deem hate groups,. the more money they get.


  16. David — they made the rules; the rest of us have decided to play by them. Don’t like the rules? Talk to the people who made them.


  17. SPLC describes anyone on their “hate” list in one-sided, myoptic detail: Age, personal details about their lives, where they live, rant, rant, rant.

    Here’s an example of their hate: Rant rant rant against Pamela Geller:

    SPLC never acknowledges that the horrific things Geller exposes really exist.

    Here’s the founder of SPLC, Morris Dees, speaking at Grinell College in Iowa: He gushes over his favorite childhood mentor teacher: A woman who left “one nation under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance. He trashes Glenn Beck and Senator Bachman while calling anyone who criticizes Obama racist. He does all of this IN A CHURCH and, of course, in the name of “social justice”.

    Contact Grinell college and complain. SPLC engages in the indoctrination of students via narrow-minded bigots like Dees.

    Now choke on the title of this video!
