The Leftwing extremist group called 'The Southern Poverty Law Center' of Montgomery, Alabama has with one stroke of the pen smeared conservatives and Patriots in its new, infamous 'blacklist' it entitles, 'Meet the Patriots.'

Among those it includes in the blacklist are some of the most reputable conservative Patriots in America today, such as U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), federal judge and Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), Gun Owners of America (GOA) chief Larry Pratt, Fox News personality Glenn Beck, and U.S. Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), among others.

I am hoping that I write them a “Go “F” yourself” letter I can get on that list.

'The Southern Poverty Law Center'

was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joseph J. Levin Jr. as a civil rights law firm

Later, civil rights leader Julian Bond became its president.

Julian Bond quotes:

“Violence is black children going to school for 12 years and receiving 6 years' worth of education.”

“The war in Iraq has as much to do with terrorism as the administration has to do with compassion.”

“Many are attracted to social service-the rewards are immediate, the gratification quick. But if we have social justice, we won't need social service.”

“As legal slavery passed, we entered into a permanent period of unemployment and underemployment from which we have yet to emerge.”

In 1960, Bond began a career as a racial agitator when he participated in an Atlanta sit-in. Out of that experience, he co-founded the Committee on Appeal for Human Rights.

Before a group of young leftists in New York, Bond issued a call for "an organized movement of Negroes to avoid military service on racial grounds. We’re first class citizens on the battlefield but second class citizens at home. Why fight for a country that has never fought for you?"

In 1966, Bond participated in the Communists’ National Guardian forum on politics and policy. He became co-chairman of the National Conference for New Politics, a classical united front third party movement largely controlled by the Communist Party. (Communist Joseph North, writing in the Worker, said: "When I came across Julian Bond’s name as co-chairman of the National Conference for New Politics, I rejoiced.")

By February 1968, Bond endorsed comedian and street demonstrator Dick Gregory as a presidential candidate, with Benjamin Spock as his vice-presidential running mate. Such "peace" candidates, according to Bond, would "drive out the aggression against the poor in America rather than the imaginary aggression from Hanoi."

******

In 1961 Bond joined the staff of the Atlanta Inquirer and was elected to the Georgia State Assembly four years later. But the Assembly refused to seat Bond, citing his endorsement of a SNCC directive that urged young black men to illegally avoid the military draft.

He was endorsed by the Communist Party, participated in Communist political forums, and campaigned for Communist and leftwing politicians, in addition to urging blacks to resist the draft.

Bond also took part in the increasingly radicalized anti-war movement of the late 1960s, at one point endorsing Dick Gregory and Benjamin Spock as presidential candidates. He led a move to unseat the legitimately selected Georgia delegation at the 1968 Democratic Presidential convention in Chicago. And he testified on behalf of the infamous Chicago Seven, five of whom were convicted of crossing state lines to incite a riot at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968.

Bond also began discussing the possibility of financial reparations for slavery, suggesting that the churches as well as the federal government should give money to African Americans.

In 1970 Bond compared Adolf Hitler’s relationship to Jews with Richard Nixon’s relationships to blacks.

In 1971 Bond was named President of the Southern Poverty Law Center, on whose Board of Directors he continues to sit.

Throughout his decades as a public figure, Bond has smeared black conservatives with great passion, deriding them for joining what he calls “a right-wing conspiracy” aimed at eliminating affirmative action, abridging voting rights, and reforming public education. In 2001 he claimed that President Bush had "appeased the wretched appetites of the extreme right wing" by appointing "Cabinet officials whose devotion to the Confederacy is nearly canine in its uncritical affection," individuals belonging to the "Taliban wing of American politics." Bond endorsed cartoonist Aaron McGruder's characterization (on America’s Black Forum) of National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice as a murderer, and of the entire Bush White House as an “oil cabal.”

In February 2006, at Fayetteville State University in Arkansas, Bond charged that Republicans’ “idea of equal rights is the American flag and the Confederate swastika flying side by side.” When his comments sparked a firestorm of criticism, Bond accused “right-wing blogs” of having mischaracterized his statement: “I didn’t say these things I’m alleged to have said. There is no one in the audience who can say I said them.” But shortly thereafter, the Fayetteville Observer posted a 45-minute recording of Bond’s speech online, proving that he had indeed made the comments. Moreover, in the same speech, Bond had implied that Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice were token black appointees that the Bush Administration was using as “human shields against any criticism of [its] record on civil rights.”

Morris Dees, Jr. - Southern Poverty Law Center (aka Poverty Pimps)

activist from United States of Unitarian religion

Morris Dees Jr.'s maternal great grandfather served in Joe Wheeler's Confederate Cavalry during the Civil War. He fought for the superiority of the whites in the South. His maternal grandfather was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

******

When a hate crime is something to love:

...Morris Dees [founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center] won a judgment for a black woman whose son was killed by Klansmen. She received $51,875 as settlement. Mr. Dees, according to an investigation by the Montgomery Advertiser, pulled in $9 million from fund-raising solicitation letters that featured a particularly gruesome photograph of the grieving mother's son. Mr. Dees, who pays himself an annual salary of $275,000, offered the grieving mother none of the $9 million her son's death made for him.

"You are a fraud and a con man," Stephen Bright, director of the Southern Center for Human Rights, which actually takes on dozens of death-penalty appeals for poor blacks every year, once told him. "You spend so much, accomplish so little, and promote yourself so shamelessly."...

******

The Church of Morris Dees:

In 1986, the center's entire legal staff quit in protest of Dees's refusal to address issues--such as homelessness, voter registration, and affirmative action--that they considered far more pertinent to poor minorities, if far less marketable to affluent benefactors, than fighting the KKK. Another lawyer, Gloria Browne, who resigned a few years later, told reporters that the center's programs were calculated to cash in on "black pain and white guilt."

Poverty Pimp Palace aka Southern Poverty Law Center

Press Here

Front Page mag: The SPLC which has crusaded for the rights of blacks for 23 years, is controlled by whites. It has hired only two black staff attorneys in its history, both of whom left unhappy. 12 of 13 former Black employees interviewed by the Montgomery Advertiser complained they experienced or observed racial problems during their employment. Several said the SPLC was "more like a plantation." [The Montgomery Advertiser. Feb. 13-14, 1994.]

Jewish World Review says that the Southern Poverty Law Center "...is actually a fund-raising scheme that could teach televangelists a thing or two. "

******

Despite his image as the moral guardian of the nation, his ex-wife cited in divorce documents at least one homosexual encounter, and numerous mistresses including his daughter-in-law and underage stepdaughter.

Dees launched the rumor in April 1996 about a racist conspiracy to burn Black churches in the South. After subsequent investigation revealed there was no rash of Black church burnings, many newspapers, including The Charlotte Observer, concluded that Dees "misinformed" the press.

USA Today reported in 1996 that Dees's Southern Poverty Law Center was "the nation's richest civil rights organization" with $68 million in assets. Stephen Bright, one of Dees's numerous former associates, told a reporter that Dees is "a fraud who has milked a lot of very wonderful, well-intentioned people."

While Dees and his Center purport to fight prejudice and racism, 12 of 13 former Black employees interviewed by The Montgomery Advertiser complained they experienced or observed racial problems during their employment. Several said the law center was, "more like a plantation." Former intern Christine Lee said she was nicknamed, "little girl" by a White supervisor. "As I was told (at the SPLC), they don't need Black people telling them how to handle Black issues.", Lee said.

I was subpoenaed by Morris Dees several years ago.
Had to go to a deposition.
Another exciting memory as a pro-lifer
