Posted on 12/31/2010 3:11:13 AM PST by Scanian
The Southern Poverty Law Center's ironically named "Intelligence Report" for Winter 2010 contains a hit piece entitled, "Geller, Jones Amp Up Anti-Muslim Hate Rhetoric."
More disinformation and outright lying from Leftist propagandists.
Their skullduggery is apparent in their presentation of a false narrative. Notice how they are conflating me and my work with the cartoonish Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who gained international fame by threatening to burn the Qur'an - and then backing down. This is Goebbels-style propaganda. Jones is a media creation, a fringe pastor who Tweeted something stupid - that he was going to burn the Qur'an -- and the media descended like locusts. The Ground Zero Mosque story worked in just the opposite way: it became national news in spite of the media's silence, and the American people stood against the mosque despite the media's relentless cheerleading for the Islamic supremacist slumlord Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and the other shady Ground Zero Mosque organizers. The Ground Zero mosque was the people's story, the people's outrage, a cry against the disrespect and insult.
The SPLC's "Intelligence Report" didn't bother to mention that I wrote this about the Qur'an-burning back on September 9, before Terry Jones backed off his threat to burn the book: "A stupid idea, of course but protected under the laws of free speech. The burning of books is wrong in principle: the antidote to bad speech is not censorship or book-burning, but more speech. Open discussion. Give-and-take. And the truth will out. There is no justification for burning books. If Americans are free and not under Sharia, then the church can do this if it wants, and their freedom and rights should be protected. Islamic supremacists should not be allowed a victory for their violent intimidation --if these people want to burn a book..."

should have put those books in a large pile and danced around it like wild indians...
NOTE: Jeffry Picower, a seldom-seen philanthropist, investor and confidant of Bernard Madoff, stood accused by Madoff's bankruptcy trustee of extracting $5.1 billion from Madoffs enterprises during the last two decades. The lawyer representing 100 Madoff victims suggests it was no accident that Picower was one of the few Madoff customers who made a substantial profit.
Picower is said to have "deposited" $1.6 billion with Madoff, while withdrawing a sraggering 950% as profit....... more than $6.7 billion.
After Picower (cough) "drowned" in his swimming pool, his wife agreed to cough up billions in illicit profits (so she wouldn't have to go to jail). The Picowers "philanthropy" also extended to funding Planned Parenthood's abortion business.
QUESTION: Can SPLC produce records on how they spent tax-exempt money? Oh, nevermind. The IRS, SEC, FBI, Congress and the GAO can find out (/snix).
SCAM-A-RAMA Morris Seligman Dees, Jr. is co-founder and chief trial counsel for the tax-exempt Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Dees was one of the principal architects of an innovative strategy of using civil lawsuits to secure a court judgment for money damages against an organization for a wrongful act and then use the courts to seize its assets (money, land, buildings, other property) to pay the judgment.
ANALYSIS SPLC'S modus operandi is strikingly similar to the Milberg Weiss law firm's "class action" scam. Read on.
NYP---June 3, 2008 -- Mel Weiss, co-founder and chief trial counsel for the securities law firm Milberg LLP, was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for illegally paying clients to file shareholder suits that prosecutors said earned $251 million in lawyer fees. Weiss pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy, admitting he helped secretly pay a stable of plaintiffs to file suits 1979-2005. By using them to sue first, the firm was more likely to lead cases and reap larger fees.
"Weiss was widely recognized as the king of the plaintiffs' securities bar," said Jacob Frenkel, a former federal prosecutor. Yesterday's sentence, along with a similar prison term for Weiss' ex-partner, Bill Lerach, caps a victory for the Justice Department in its effort to combat shareholder litigation and the two men who pioneered the modern securities fraud class action.
Weiss, Lerach and their counterparts engineered cases and paid litigants to sue that forced companies to pay $45 billion.........,and damaged millions of stockholders.
Milberg became so feared by corporations that Congress passed a law making it harder to file such suits. Weiss's former law firm dropped him from its name when he pleaded guilty. Lerach made a plea deal in a scheme prosecutors alleged involved kickback payments to plaintiffs in class action lawsuits he and his former law firm brought. Court papers say that the two employed the scheme for more than two decades in 150 cases that brought their firm more than $200 million in fees (that we know of).
Milberg Weiss, the NY law firm where was indicted on conspiracy, mail fraud and money laundering charges in May 2006. In Lerach's agreement to plead guilty to a conspiracy charge, Justice Department lawyers agreed not to prosecute him over "election, campaign, or other political contributions" related to shady donations to the John Edwards campaign.
L/E needs to determine whether SPLC used collusion and conspiracy to extort monies. For example, SPLC officers may have committed government fraud and may have integrated schemes such as:
(a) misusing reserve accounts, (b) concealing losses, (c) inflating asset values and (d) improperly accounting for transactions, as well as (e) diverting monies into reserve accounts, (f) improperly shifting govt funding to other projects to hide illegal payments, (g) engaging in money laundering schemes, (h) evading IRS, FEC, and US banking laws, and (i) engaging in illegal conversions)

The IRS should relentlessly determine if all income was reported and whether all relevant taxes were paid (stolen money is taxable).

THE MODUS OPERANDI----ANIMAL RIGHTS SHAKEDOWN EXPOSED America's farmers, ranchers, hunters, fishermen, research scientists, fashion designers, and restaurateurs have seen for decades how the animal rights movement is like a mobbed-up shakedown racket.
A Federal judge ruled "animal rights defendants" collaborated to bribe a "barn helper" w/ $190,000 in exchange for his impeached testimony. A "nonprofit charity"---called the Wildlife Advocacy Project---- was used to funnel the money from a law firm to the bribed plaintiff.
For all the hell Jones caught just on the basis of the threat, he might as well have gone through with the fire.
Ignore. The are a Communist Front Group.
If only the LSM would do the same.
Dees’ group has been the “go to” source for information on bigotry for years.
Sure they lie. But they tell lefty reporters what they want to hear so they go on and on.
THe LSM is also a Communist Front. They are allies.
...great post Liz...and BTW when my daughter was in Law School they had Morris Dees come in as guest speaker...the Dean gushed over him and encouraged students to work for him upon graduation...that shows you how far Leftist thought has infiltrated into law schools.
They used to mail me a picture of a lynched Black person every month to solicit donations.
Later on I found that those pictures were from the 20’s and earlier.
Dees is a scumbag. A very rich scumbag.
He is still sniffing about, looking to score again, from another generation of nitwits.
The SPLC has $190 million dollars, raises about $20 million per year and spends about $5 million per year.
It's a direct mail scam masquerading as a nonprofit.
How does “Anti-Muslim Hate Rhetoric” stack up against flying passengers into skyscrapers, S.P.L.C.?
“Notice how they are conflating me and my work with the cartoonish Terry Jones...”
Ummm, Pammie... when being attacked by dishonest guilt scammers, you’ll get a lot more support if you don’t respond by shouting “don’t attack me — attack him!”
Shoot, those lynchings might have been done by one of his white trash sharecropper ancestors.
From what I understand, some were very active in the KKK.
I had posted once that being listed on the SPLC site as a hate group was a badge of honor, to which someone replied that I was including the Klan in that. While that was a good point, I guess it would be better to say that groups like the Klan benefit by being lumped with groups that aren’t “hate groups” at all. Like the over-use of the word “Nazi” to describe anyone a liberal doesn’t like, the phrase “hate group” is losing its punch.
They are out to divide/conquer; with lower IQ Americans they have succeeded.
To lefties, the talk is much worse.
It is “insidious” and could lead to mass persecutions of-—most anybody by nearly everybody!
“Ya Can Shock the Sh!t Troops, but Ya Cannot Sh!t The Shock Troops!”
The Democratic party has accomplished what the klan could not do with base mayhem and murder.
No one gives a spit, or even has a clue as to what has been done.
I may be wrong, and they all may be fine moral men. I do not negate the possibility that the immoral a$$hole that profits through the propagation of human suffering is me.
Just doubt it, because I'm poor.
The world will be a better place when Morris Dees is pushing up daisies. He is nothing but a wealthy, leftist, scumbag lawyer bent on destroying America.
