Heading over to the Southern Poverty Law Center‘s website, you’ll be faced with a header page of ominous, angry-looking “White Supremacists” whom the SPLC suggests are going to rise up, kill all non-Whites and overthrow the government, usually with little or no evidence.
Below, in their featured articles section, you will still be able to read all about the Sikh Shooting Massacre, which of course was perpetrated by a “Neo-Nazi” hater, as well as other articles highlighting the rise of Right-Wing Domestic Terrorism and Neo-Nazi conspiracy theories. Again, usually with little or no evidence
At the time of this writing on Thursday, August 16, 2012, you will not be able to read on the SPLC’s website about the Family Research Center Shooting. The shooting was apparently perpetrated by a volunteer of an LGTB group, and at this time, the shooting appears to be a politically motivated hate crime.
This should come as no surprise as the SPLC has labelled the Family Research Center a “hate group,” and many media outlets have sourced the SPLC when referring to the Family Research Center in their articles. Apparently, the SPLC claims that the Family Research Center has an anti-gay bias and takes any and every opportunity to link the organization to “hate crimes” and other politically incorrect activity.
This hypocrisy by the SPLC and all of the media outlets that regulary quote the organization as a legitimate source is quite outstanding.
It should also be noted, especially considering that in the past the SPLC’s main spokesperson Mark Potok, can often be seen on various media outlets using any shooting to smear any of the organization’s political enemies on behalf of the LGTB and anti-2nd amendment groups, whether they had anything to do with the shooting or not.
