'Occupy' terrorists now called 'Radical Right' by Southern Poverty Law Center
American Thinker ^ | Sep 9, 2012 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 09/10/2012 9:34:08 AM PDT by Old Sarge

The media has done its best to ignore the Occupy terrorists, but have now confessed. Perhaps drawing inspiration from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who can lie with an utterly straight face about reality (what she said on tape about the Israeli ambassador, what happened on the floor of the DNC when the words Jerusalem and God were excised and then restored to the platform), the Southern Poverty Law Center has stepped in to solve the problem for the left. Re-define the Occupy movement as "radical right."

What’s sad is the SPLC started off with good people and good intentions, and then promptly because just another arm of the Democrat Party, crying wolf and making false accusations of racism/bigotry.

They G-dless did this with the ADL and increasing other groups.

Curious: The anarchist group Sovereign Citizens a right or left group? Or if you go far enough either way do they meet in a circle?

Occupy was the leftist version of the Tea Party, which is why Occupy was a media darling (despite the various rapes and rioting).

I *visited* Occupy Wall Street.I was there last October *before* it had descended into the rat infested pig sty it eventually became...complete with robberies and rapes.I have pictures,which I can't find right this minute (and wouldn't know how to post even if I could find them).These pictures feature lice infested smelly hippies,65 year old disciples of Bill Ayers...all of whom had long,gray ponytails...and speckled kids high on God-knows-what.

While there I saw many a likeness of that peace loving humanitarian,Che Guevera,but not a single (complementary) likeness of W,let alone Reagan.

"Or if you go far enough either way do they meet in a circle?"

If you regard the political continuum (right to left) as a belief in the degree of government control over the individual, the "extreme right" consists of anarchists who believe in absolutely no government/law restricting the individual. Yet, when anarchy looms the resulting chaos frequently sets the conditions for an individual strongman or junta on the far left, who promises to, and may actually restore order, with no constraints whatsoever on his/their power.

So while the two may not exactly meet per se, one frequently presupposes the other. Often times, quite deliberately so.

It started off as a sucker list of gullible people with money who were willing to part with it given the right scary bogeyman and a persuasive direct mail sales pitch.

Still is. But, DHS seems to have taken it to heart.

How does the Southern Poverty Law Center define radical right? Do they mean the kooks have gone so far left they’ve run around the scale?

Actually, leftist flakes like to think of anarchist as some kind of extreme of conservatism, showing their ignorance of both.

Occuturds tried to recruit conservatives when they began their filth fest, and they didn’t have any luck. We know the mother of Occuturdism is the soviet left, AKA the DNC.

The Nazis were national socialists, while the communists are international socialists. The only real difference is that the Nazis had snapper uniforms. A more accurate political continuum is with the anarchists on the far right and absolute dictatorship on the far left.

I absolutely KNEW that eventually, some Obama surrogate-group
would try to float the idea that idea that the Occupy “folks” were actually a branch, an offshoot, or a mutation of the Tea Party. Of course, I think we all expected the Occupy groups to be more front and center through the summer and into the election period than they have in fact become.They have petered out, and I don’t know if there are any plans for a
“resurgence”. I think they’ve gotten the word, from the White House or their own internal “brains trust” to cool it in the summer and fall, because it would inevitably hurt Obama’s chances. More disruptive activity from OWS this close to the election would give too many voters the idea that it was designed to SERVE and reinforce the Obama message, rather than undermine it. Yet still it can’t hurt, the way they see it, to put forth the idea that they are RADICAL RIGHT rather than anarchistic Radical Leftists.
This is another bit of demagoguery that will go over like a lead balloon, in whatever little way they try to sell it.

I sure don't remember their good old days like that, they were started by hard leftists to advance leftist causes, the radical leftist Julian Bond was their first president, he got the job having earned his chops by helping to create another leftist organization of 1960s fame, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).

SPLC has always been a leftist organization and was founded by leftists, to advance the left.

"the SPLC started off with good people and good intentions"

I thought it was founded by commies.

Remember the "Death to the Klan" rally in Greensboro, NC, promoted for months in advance by the SPLC—supposedly on behalf of black textile workers? I was living in New York at the time. Reading one of the frequent direct-mail pieces I was getting from SPLC on this, I said to myself, "My, what a violent bunch. They must be trying to get some people killed."

And that's exactly what happened. When the day for the glorious rally came, five on the SPLC-Communist side were killed by gunfire. The Communists also were shooting at the handful of counter-demonstrators, but apparently didn't successfully hit anyone. A local commission investigation later found that many in the local black population had been uncomfortable with the idea of this march because of the potential for violence. This was pure race-war agitprop. SPLC, by promoting a confrontation and promising deadly force (hate speech anybody?), is on the record inciting a riot and acting as accessory to murder.

Recall that the year 1979 was during the time of the Soviet Union. Anything named "Communist" or its near relative was taking orders from Moscow, according to the Venona intercepts.

Despite changes in the home country, the SPLC seems to have "kept the faith." May they meet their just reward, which I'm guessing will be different from St. Paul's.

That's right.  Just because the Nazis had nationalist fervor did not make them right wing.  The Japanese were very nationalistic also.  Did that make the Japanese government right wing?  Nonsense. 

Socialist = Left Wing

Communist = Left Wing

Capitalist = Right Wing. 

And the propoganda lie that has been very effectively propogated by the left that the Nazis were "right wing facists" still lives on in the minds of many people.  Especialy our Jewish friends.

Actually, when you consider the politcal spectrum, with insane, violent, NO-GOVERNMENT whackos on one side, and insane, dangerous BIG-GOVERNMENT whackos on the other, then I'd tend to agree that it's the anarchists who are right wing, and its the tyrants (Hitler, Mussoline, etc) who are left wing.

So I don't mind if the left wants to call THESE idiots right wing, as long as they confess that the other end of the spectrum, the world's Hitlers and Husseins (I mean Saddam, but any Hussein will do) are left wing.

I stand correct.

I guess I should say: at first SPLC started off by focusing on more-or-less real racists, but now its true face shows.

I don't think their real target was ever racism or antisemitism. It was people -- conservative Southerners who, if you asked them, would tell you they were anti-Communist and anti-socialist.

That's the people in the South and Midwest -- in the "Finkelstein Box" -- that the New Left really went after.

Great summation!

The only reason Hitler came to power was as a delayed reaction to the fact that the Communists had seized power in Munich, Hungary, and Russia and had tried seizing power in Berlin and many other places in the aftermath of World War I. The votes for Hitler (in the runup to 1933) were to a great extent from women who feared the Communist threat and sought security, never dreaming what AH was really like.
