Skip to comments.Scathing report: Tea partiers just like Timothy McVeigh
Posted on 03/02/2010 7:36:33 PM PST by Man50D
A new attack by the Southern Poverty Law Center charges the tea-party movement is "shot through" with radical ideas and tied with "hate groups," "furious anti-immigrant vigilante groups" and "so-called 'Patriot' groups."
The SPLC report, "Rage on the Right, The Year in Hate and Extremism," assails Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., for "plugging" anti-government ideas and Gun Owners of America Executive Director Larry Pratt for daring to promote Second Amendment gun rights.
The SPLC's Mark Potok warns "so-called 'Patriot' groups militias and other organizations that see the federal government as part of a plot to impose 'one-world government' on liberty-loving Americans came roaring back after years out of the limelight."
The report echoes themes in a U.S. Department of Homeland Security report last year that characterized "right-wing extremists" as opponents of abortion and illegal immigration and supporters of gun rights and third-party political candidates.
The SPLC said the "radical right" "caught fire last year."

Alinsky techniques....isolate the target, ridicule the target...
Watch for it. This is how they will fight the tea party.
Sounds like the little piggies at the lowlife SPLC don’t think much of AMERICANS!!! I saw one of those bozos from SPLC on TV once. The boy appeared to be a little light in the loafers. A real girlyman.
Yeah, and Obama/Pelosi/Reid are just like Hitler, Goebbels, and Heydrich. See, two can play this game.
I wonder if this Potok moron will ever address the hate coming from his commie comrades on the left. I won’t hold my breath. This jackass has been in the news and on the boob tube a lot lately. His sham organization must be hurting for donations.
and the SPLC is just like the KKK...
Where will they be when the socialists takeover?
They need to think about that.
Ho Hum. The SPLC pretending to see racist lynch mobs behind every corner, in a obviously disingenuous attempt to smear any opponents of their twisted left-wing agenda. Nothing new here.
Its about time the radical right catches fire, the radical left caught fire a long time ago.
LOL. What TEA Party groups are they talking about?
Thanks for posting. Is that POS Morris Dees still alive?
The SPLC is shot through with anti-American Marxists. What did anyone expect from them?
I do know that in their "patriot group" list for Idaho they have one listed that was one guy all by himself, and his website got yanked months ago.
Dunno if he just didn't pay for it or if his hosting provider closed it for content, which there wasn't any hate or racism at all on it.
Big threat. Definitely needed the SPLC watching him...(/sarc)
.....and KKK Bird is the democrat party.
.....and the Black panthers are the democrat party.
.....fill in your own rat party followers.
Agreed. The Southern Poverty Law Center is another ACLU outfit.

What do you mean, atheist? Wasn't McVeigh a Christian, an evangelical Christian, I mean that is what the mainstream media told me he was ...
No, McVeigh was an atheist, and always was. He declared his atheism on his deathbed as the needle was put into his arm. Just read American Terrorist: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing.
But, but, Keith Olbermann and Christiane Amanpour told me McVeigh was a mainstream protestant Christian like hundreds of millions of other mainstream protestant Christians in the world, and because of that I should fear mainstream protestant Christians ...
No, McVeigh was an atheist, and always was. He declared his atheism on his deathbed as the needle was put into his arm. Just read American Terrorist: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing. This is part of a false narrative, a false canon, being forced on you by the radical left.
Nah, nah, nah, I'm not listening, I'm not listening!
I went to the inaugural Tea Party in Richmond, VA. As you can imagine, there were a LOT of Blacks — that is the nature of the demographics here. And, yes, they don’t like getting screwed by a government bent on total takeover of our lives.
So, ko, you should check your facts before making blanket statements. Like the lady said — “hello?”
If a real civil war ever broke out with real fighting and shooting, those pansy boy liberals at the so-called Southern Poverty Law Center would be annihilated the first day. If I were them I’d be nice and polite to patriotic Americans.
The libs big problem now is that it's very hard to isolate and ridicule millions of pissed off citizens. Lord knows that they tried and failed miserably last August.
Not a word of hate or violence on their website at all.
Must just be white racists then....

"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at"
--Bill Ayers ("intellectual") (1970), quoted in New York Times, September 11, 2001:
Article: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that ["intellectual"] Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Ayers: Obama was 'family friend'
New afterword to 2001 book, Ayers describes Barack Obama as 'family friend'
'Guilty as hell, free as a birdAmerica is a great country,' he [Ayers] said."
August 2001, Chicago Magazine (article: No Regrets)
"So, would Mr. Ayers do it all again, he is asked? 'I dont want to discount the possibility',he said."
New York Times, September 11, 2001:
"No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:
"By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'Were revolutionary Communists.'
He got off on the groups multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.
Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been successfully executed."
"The bomb was intended to be planted at a non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum casualties upon detonation."
2007 Fort Dix attack plot
A group of six radical Islamist men, allegedly plotting to stage an attack on the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey, United States, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 7, 2007. They were subsequently charged with planning an attack against U.S. soldiers. The alleged aim of the six men was said to be to "kill as many soldiers as possible". Their trial began on October 20, 2008. 
Opening arguments were presented on October 20, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants were inspired by jihad saying "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
One guy by himself that just screams conspiracy
What happened to Morris Dees? Why isn’t he out there as the face of the SPLC?
The guy was a lowlife class action ambulance chaser who ended up siphoning off over $100Million dollars from donors to the SPLC and he used the monies as a personal bank account for his lavish lifestyle and ‘business expenses’.
This Potok guy obviously just isn’t working for the same level of payoff and it shows when he puts on these pathetically meek and floundering TV interviews on fellow travelers’ TV shows. This guy is even worse than Abe Foxman at scaring the little blue haired ladies out of their pension checks.
Are there any more liberal talking points left for them to use?
Sheesh, seems like they unloaded both barrels of accusations and rhetoric on us.
Clearly they really hate us. We must be doing something right.
Sounds like this is actionable. Who is going to sue the Souhern Poverty Law Center down to the ground?

Julian Bond on the board of directors...enough said.
Poverty pimps in action.
Of all the left's organizations, the SPLC is almost certainly the nastiest.
It's all a matter of fund-raising. Morris Dees learned how to mine the radical cess pools of the far left...and Mark Potok has simply followed in his footsteps.
If they were on our side, I'd be deeply embarrassed.
The Southern Poverty Law Center trying to remain relevant. Amazing they don’t complain about the communists or fascists that riddle the Osama administration.
SPLC is the white Jesse Jackson.
Didnt this same thing happen under Clinton? And those Right Wingers were out to get Bill and Hillary....maybe even impeach him
Interesting reading - Morris Dees
Good luck with that this time dumb asses. The Alinsky model is so fifteen minutes ago. Their time has past.
Southern Poverty Law Center frowns on Liberty. That’s all ya’ need to know.
