The Southern Poverty Law Center Is Now Writing About Pickup Artists as Hate Groups
Reason ^ | 3-9-2012 | Mike Riggs

Posted on 03/10/2012 9:25:02 AM PST by Hacksaw

The Southern Poverty Law Center, founded in 1971 as a civil rights law firm, has released its latest "Intelligence Report" on hate groups in the United States. This year's report contains a new category: the Manosphere.

From the SPLC's introduction to the misogyny report:

The so-called “manosphere” is peopled with hundreds of websites, blogs and forums dedicated to savaging feminists in particular and women, very typically American women, in general. Although some of the sites make an attempt at civility and try to back their arguments with facts, they are almost all thick with misogynistic attacks that can be astounding for the guttural hatred they express. What follows are brief descriptions of a dozen of these sites. Another resource is the Man Boobz website (manboobz.com), a humorous pro-feminist blog (its tagline is “Misogyny: I Mock It”) that keeps a close eye on these and many other woman-hating sites.

It is truly sublime that a group the DHS cited in its controversial report on right-wing terrorism now turns to a website called "Man Boobz" for its hate-group reporting. More sublime is the fact that the SPLC has listed a D.C.-area pickup artist who goes by RooshV in its list of women-haters:

Looks like the KKK can't bring in the $$$ like it used to, so the SPLC needs a new group of Americans to demonize.

Ironic, considering what a vicious misogynist is the founder of the SPLC, Morris Dees, and also an accused incestuous pedophile (SOURCE).

SPLC is itself a hate group. It needs to be investigated for its Leftist support, and its assets seized.

Interesting. Just the other day I said to myself,
self, we haven’t heard much from the splc for
quite awhile. Sure has been pleasant.

and what to my wondering eyes should appear...

A rep for the SPLC was in front of the grocery store yesterday trying to get signatures for an anti-bullying petition.

I told him I couldn't support anything they did because they lie so much.

What I should have said is that it takes a bully to know a bully.

Wow! Thanks for the link. One can live very “high on the hog” just pimping hatred of America. I don’t know who the fools are that give this maggot their money but they sure can’t be very bright. I don’t see any “poverty” in that house.

One of the comments on the site I linked from stated that the SPLC has succeeded admirably in than none of the people who run it have ever experienced poverty.

Yeah, people just aren't scared of the Klan anymore. Looks like Al Bundy and The Fonz are the new threat to progressives.

SPLC is a scam based upon the old mafia protection racket, imho. They write scary articles about their bogeyman du jour, nearly always southern and white, in order to reinforce their direct mail and online fundraising.

Got to keep on ratcheting up the fear to shake the money tree of donations and contributions, primarily from elderly academics and Jewish people. They’ve relieved them of quite the sum over the decades, but from all appearances based upon their reliably shrill cries of alarm, the SPLC is either incompetent or they really just don’t want their threats to go away. It’s too lucrative.

The really sadly funny thing is, we’ve got a contingent here on FR, who periodically trot out this or that SPLC evil cracker porn as if it’s the gospel truth. That I will never understand. If they’re anything, the SPLC is an anticonservative hate group. They deserve nothing but derision and negative exposure here.

The very simple and effective response to anything the SLPC claims is to accuse them of crying “wolf”.

Because it’s true.

The SPLC is to civil rights as Scientology is to religion. The SPLC is a money racket.

I saw a pic of the woam who authored this report - she looks like she weighs more than me. Oooops! Guess I'm on the report now.

About 10 years ago Simon Wiesenthal Center put out CD
called “DIGITAL HATE” listing “hate Groups” on internet

Among those tagged as “haters” were

Company selling freeze dried food (it was nailed because
said its products were excellent in survival situations)

Group of Utah women who formed group supporting 2nd Ad
(tagged as anti gubmint extremists)

Children’s clown who wrote on website supporting 2nd Ad

(anti gubmint/militia extremist)

About 90% of hate groups named were tagged because of support for 2nd Ad

This is good news in a way.

It means we’re finally running out of neo-Nazis and KKK types.

Mark Potok, the SPLC “terrorism” flak for the very white, very wealthy, and very NLG/CPUSA Morris Dees, has a knack for identifying right-wing hate and terrorist groups, but, when asked for his list of left-wing groups, comes up a bit short, usually only managing the ELF or unnamed animal rights groups. It’s odd that he never includes the democrat party, as fond as it is of dredging up violent scenarios for its “enemies” among the “demons” in the GOP.

It’s just more flakking for the DNC, and in an election year.

This is a SOPA type issue, one that Rick Santorum would likely consider supporting. For that matter, there are many in the GOP, along with their Leftwing colleagues, that are happy to censor the Internet.

Homeland inSecurity is made in their image: http://theintelhub.com/2010/10/08/it%E2%80%99s-official-southern-poverty-law-center-is-now-part-of-dhs/

We can stop wondering why liberalism’s opposition is officially classified as domestic “terrorists.”

This is an outrage! ADL is involved in this smearing as well.

Well, you can rest comfortably now that the SPLC has resources such as a guy who calls himself "Manboobz" to keep us safe.

The SPLC has declared the American Legion a NEO-NAZI hate group. Wonder if they actually talked to anybody in the American Legion?

This year's report contains a new category: the Manosphere.

"Have they ever subjected you to cruelty and ignominy, Dejah Thoris?" I asked, feeling the hot blood of my fighting ancestors leap in my veins as I awaited her reply.

Oh to be on Mars, where the men are men and the women are naked ... not in the movie, though. They had her wrapped up pretty tight, much to my disappointment.

The previews included an ad for a new TV series, MISSING, I think, about an enraged mother dispatching evil men in droves, as she searches for her helpless son. 'course her poor husband was done in years ago, so now she's really mad. It's a series!

SPLC is a hack group with a lot of academia ties. They write "reports" on the boogeyman, almost all of which are white and conservative. They say these people are a threat and to please send the SPLC money.

Morris Dees, has a knack for identifying right-wing hate and terrorist groups.

Morris Dees has made a career out of personally identifying supposed, right-wing hate and terrorist groups.

A well used principle of haters, accusing others of just what you are involved in, as a smoke screen.

Well Morris you aren’t getting any younger and you as well as your scam have long been exposed, now if we can just get you out of the government influence business we would all be better off.

Hasn’t the fact, Morris, in contrast to your accusations, regarding neo nazis as rightwing hate also been long exposed. Nazi’s were Socialists Morris along the same line as thousands of L E F T I S T/P R O G R E S S I V E/C O M M U N I S T groups. Isn’t it about time for you to get something right?
