Southern Poverty Law Center Cites Violent Incidents; Lou Dobbs Calls SPLC Director 'Paranoid'
Anti-government sentiments in the U.S. have reached levels so high they could result in another attack like the Oklahoma City bombing, according to a report released Tuesday by an organization that tracks right-wing extremists and the authors of the report place part of the blame on Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck, Rep. Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin.
A host of recent attacks on law enforcement, plots against President Obama, and a shooting at Washington, D.C.'s Holocaust museum are "signs of the times," said Mark Potok, ...

I’d betcha it wouldn’t be too hard to find 25 examples of SPLC-client-on-non-SPLC-client crime for every 1 they can site to support their assertion here.
There’s probably NO group as racist
as the SPLC .. except for the current
They must use Jesse’s and Al’s mailing
lists to fundraise, and they’re all
so despicably lowdown dirty.
Commie scumbag traitors.
I’m not holding my breath .. they
all connect with each other.
“a shooting at Washington, D.C.’s Holocaust museum are “signs of the times,” said Mark Potok, ...”
Why are Jews all so liberal? Its really not in their own best interests.
The SPLC never cared much for my books.
Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista review by the Southern Poverty Law Center
Books on the Right: A Nativist’s Paranoid Vision by Susy Buchanan
In 1973, a Frenchman named Jean Raspail wrote a bitter and paranoid novel about the “invasion” of his native land by starving Third World refugees. The book was a racist vision of the consequences of non-white immigration, aided and abetted, in the author’s view, by the weak-minded liberals who failed to resist it. For almost 35 years, The Camp of the Saints has been a Bible to the radical right.
Now, courtesy of former Navy SEAL Matthew Bracken, comes the American version a portrait of the apocalypse Bracken fears will overtake America thanks to undocumented immigration from the south. The book is a fictionalized version of the Aztlan conspiracy theory the idea that Mexico is secretly planning a “reconquista” (reconquering) of the seven states of the Southwest that now animates large swaths of the anti-immigration movement. It’s being plugged on extremist websites, in gun magazines and similar electronic venues, and on immigrant-bashing radio shows like Peter Boyles’ program on KHOW-AM in Denver.
This isn’t the first angry, self-published novel from Bracken. His new book, Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista, is the second in a series that began with another paranoid fantasy about gun control and evil agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, a favorite bête noire of the extreme right. His latest book, marked by an enthusiastic interest in busty women, is a xenophobe’s racy vision of hell.
[A long detailed plot summary with numerous “spoilers” is snipped here. It can be read at the SPLC link.]
Domestic Enemies plods along between the over-the-top action sequences. Bracken oversexualizes his gun-loving heroine, devoting as much prose to her breasts as he does her weapons which is a lot and many minor players come off as one-dimensional caricatures. But a sexy heroine shooting guns of varying calibers at liberal, communist, open-borders villains in a world destroyed by immigration and multiculturalism is an irresistible fantasy for the audience this genre of fiction attracts no matter the novel’s numerous flaws.
Of course, this fictionalization is hardly necessary, even for those given to this kind of thing. All one need do is listen to real-life zealots like Glenn Spencer, head of the hate group American Border Patrol, who puts it like this: “Our country is being invaded by Mexico with hostile intentions. When it blows up, they can’t say we didn’t tell them, when the blood starts flowing on the border and in L.A. We’re [talking] about la reconquista.”
I’ll NEVER understand why so many are,
except for misperceived slavery guilt.
Extremism? What do you think Mr. Orwell?
The only extremism I see is coming from those who are working to completely change our culture, people and Constitution. Destroying a nation is pretty extreme in my book.
MSM continues to be complicit doing the dirty work to mainstream these racist extremists.
Such elaborate lengths to leave the impression of right wing domestic extremism. The plane suicide into the IRS? Sounded somewhere between LaRouche (Democrat) and left-libertarian. The shooter of that abortion doctor had a similar, garbled set of beliefs, every bit as leftist or moreso, than anything ostensibly right wing. The received wisdom of McVeigh being a lone, right wing bomber doesn’t hold, either. He genuinely appears to have had help, Iraqi help. But, we’ll never know for sure, that had to be the quickest execution in recent history.
The outright denial of facts in favor of leftist propaganda is getting so pervasive that it’s really alarming. It’s been building for decades, but now they don’t even back down in the face of contrary information, they just turn up the megaphone and continue on, undeterred.
The SPLC doing this sort of thing at least makes some amount of economic sense, for them. They’re scaring up their fundraising, like they’ve always done. The MSM doing so, at the expense of lost viewership and ad revenue, makes no economic sense, unless there’s some other agenda outside the profit motive, or some other means of support not in the public eye.
It’s weird, watching this apparatus take root and spread.
Southern Poverty Law Center - just another POS communist subversive group, with the usual suspects running it.
Just like the American Communist Lawyer’s Union - ACLU.
Deal with them like the toilet paper that they are.
WHAT, WHO, WHERE AND WHEN .. THESE 'RECENT PLOTS AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA' ???
Southern Poverty Center is a libtard progressive outfit whose primary goal is to spotlight....you guessed it....right wing activism and then place it in the same light as...you guessed it, right wing extremism....all the while, ignoring blatant left wing-oriented extremism. Astonishing, huh? Not, especially from this libtard and progressive dominated organization flying under the flag of ‘Southern Poverty Center.’
Here’s a thought: Frak the Southern Poverty Center...
Looks like anyone who opposes communism is a “right-wing extremist”! LOL Please put me on that list too!
But, well never know for sure, that had to be the quickest execution in recent history.
Sure was .. I’ll always be suspicious of that one.
And it's not Sarah, or Glenn or Rush.
It's the commie Kenyan whose sole purpose is to destroy this republic and whose name I will not write.
This is just a bunch of leftie lawyers trying to drum up some business.
They infer that Sarah Palin is fanning the flames but thought this was interesting. From MARK POTAK the EDITOR of the SPLC Mag:
These three strands of the radical right the hatemongers, the nativist extremist groups, and the Patriot organizations are the most volatile elements on the American political landscape. Taken together, their numbers increased by more than 40%, rising from 1,248 groups in 2008 to 1,753 last year.
Although the tea parties and similar nascent groups are not fairly described as extremist, they are laced with extreme-right ideas, conspiracy theories and racism, in part thanks to certain ostensibly mainstream commentators and politicians. One example: U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who was to speak at the Nashville tea party convention but withdrew after a House ethics committee raised questions about how profits from the event would be used. Bachman has proposed that the Congress be investigated for anti-Americanism, suggested that Obama is trying to create mandatory political reeducation camps for youths, and accused her enemies of harboring a “socialist, globalist worldview.”
Don’t forget the commie that flew his plane into the Internal Ripoff Service building.
