Re: “Big Time in the Desert

How anyone can seriously praise the SPLC and its spurious fund raising propaganda as factual is beyond me.

Of the 926 "hate groups" listed on their "Hate Map," 127 are not affiliated with any location and not one single group is documented in any way.

These groups exist simply because the SPLC says they do, and if only their largely elderly donor base would send just a little more money, Mo Dees could "fight hate" all the better.

In the meantime, the SPLC sits atop a $200 MILLION donor dollar "Endowment Fund," but the calls go out every month for more donations.

Just this month, the SPLC's PR guru, Mark Potok, admitted that his "Intelligence Report," the keystone of all SPLC fund raising propaganda, "...relies on media, citizen and law enforcement reports, and does not include original reporting by SLPC staff.”

Some experts. And for running this glorified news clipping service, Potok, who has no legal or law enforcement background, is compensated more than $143,000 donor dollars a year.

A "hate group" doesn't even have to be a group to add its mite to the fund raising scare tactics.

“Potok says inclusion on the list might come from a minor presence, such as a post office box.”

Boy, you can't beat hardcore crime fighting like that.

"Keeping America safe from PO boxes for almost 40 years!"

It's easy enough to kick groups like the Minutemen when they insist that existing US laws be enforced, but why not engage in some REAL journalism and take ten minutes to visit the SPLC's web site and take a serious look at the information they produce and then follow the money trail.

You won't do it, but you're not alone. Almost nobody else in the "media" has the journalistic qualities to take a hard look at these fear-mongering race-baiters either.
