Southern Poverty Law Center website triggered FRC shooting
The Washington Examiner ^ | February 6. 2013 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 02/07/2013 10:42:21 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The Family Research Council shooter, who pleaded guilty today to a terrorism charge, picked his target off a "hate map" on the website of the ultra-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center which is upset with the conservative group's opposition to gay rights.

Floyd Lee Corkins II pleaded guilty to three charges including a charge of committing an act of terrorism related to the August 15, 2012 injuring of FRC's guard. He told the FBI that he wanted to kill anti-gay targets and went to the law center's website for ideas.

At a court hearing where his comments to the FBI were revealed, he said that he intended to "kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims' faces, and kill the guard." The shooting occurred after an executive with Chick-Fil-A announced his support for traditional marriage, angering same-sex marriage proponents.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said that the Southern Poverty Law Center should take responsibility for the shooting and take down their hate map.

"The day after Floyd Corkins came into the FRC headquarter and opened fire wounding one of our team members, I stated that while Corkins was responsible for the shooting, he had been given a license to perpetrate this act of violence by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center which has systematically and recklessly labeled every organization with which they disagree as a 'hate group,'" he said....

Doesn’t that make the SPLC a ‘hate group’ by their very own definition?

In other words, psychologically unstable and potentially violent people read the website of the ultra-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center.

SPLC also purloined FBI and San Francisco PD files —spying on Americans.

My reading of this is that the SPLC inspired an act of TERROR.

Prosecutors should indict the Southern Poverty Law Center for being an accomplice to attempted murder.

At the very least, the FRC should sue the bleep out of this hate group.

How predictable. The MSM won’t be discussing this, of course. Send it to Drudge and get it out there anyway.

Make sure to tweet, facebook, and email them that their “hate group” classification is the only reason that this guy went nuts and did this.

It makes them flip out in anger.

According to the Eric Holder's InJustice Department they qualify for a full fledged membership in Domestic Terrorists groups. Send in the drones.

Has there ever been even one instance of a Christian Conservative committing a high-profile act of murder (murder not killing, there IS a significant difference)?

All the presidential assassinations were performed by Democrats. The rampage by former LAPD officer Chris Dorner reveals that he's a leftist. So too it was with Jared Loughner.

In all candor, in the interest of being straightforward without an agenda to advance, I simply can't think of even one Christian Conservative over the past 150 years who was involved in these wanton murders.

No, the splc should not take responsibility, they should have responsibility shoved up their collective rectum and turned sideways.

While that option is still available, that's what lawsuits are for.

"ultra-liberal" Southern Poverty Law Center

There is nothing "liberal" in any correct use of the term about the collection of pseudo-intellectual thugs in the SPLC. They are, indeed, one of the foremost American hate groups, out there. They absolutely despise everything connected with the American tradition--or for that matter, connected with any Western spiritual values.

Southern Poverty Law Center; founded and run by commies. The whole lot need to be sent off to Gitmo, if not have a drone attack on HQ.

These law pimps are deeply couched in racism, homosexualism, and are largely operated by lawyers seeking out the nearest pocket to pick. They use minority Klan tactics we see prevalent in organizations like La Raza, NAACP, and the gang of perverts and child molestors some call the GLBT alliance.

The term "abortion doctor" is an oxymoron but yes, Scott Roeder shooting George Tiller is the only one I could think of as well.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is nothing more than the Anti-White Ku Klux Klan. Their sole goal is to go after whites and Christian Conservatives

Good for the FRC to go after the SPLCKKK

SPLC sued some guy for what he wrote in a book as encouraging violence, so what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

The SPLC is a wicked stain on the otherwise beautiful (and historic) city of Montgomery, Alabama.

In a sane world, the Southern Poverty Law Center would be ridden out of town on a rail (after some well-deserved tar and feathering of the vile Morris Dees) and relocated to some liberal cesspool such as Detroit. One can hope that good people of Montgomery will take appropriate but peaceful action to rid the great state of Alabama of this evil within.

In reality a terrorist outfit such as SPLC (along with its fellow fifth columnists such as the ACLU and CAIR) would be investigated, shut down and its principles convicted of treason. To alter the "All in the Family" theme song:

Mister, we could use a man like Joe McCarthy again...

“This is an excellent chance to sue the SPLC out of existence.”

Isn’t that how they operate? Pick a religious group or political ideology they hate and then sue them out of existence? Sounds like they thrive on hate and not very tolerant.

Sauce for the goose, etc. Or are you defending the communists at the SPLC? If they thrive on hate and not very tolerant, wouldn’t ending them be a good idea?

Someone needs to file a high profile lawsuit against the SPLC for this, just to get it in the headlines.

They are a self serving and self promoting group politically, financially and otherwise. I do not support them.

Well, actually you sorta do:

"The Southern Poverty Law Center is a tax-exempt, charitable organization incorporated in 1971 under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions, grants and bequests are tax deductible. Our tax identification number is 63-0598743."

That means that all those that work for the SPLC, and the SPLC itself, make a pretty good living engaging in left wing politics and propaganda tax free (illegally by the way)--subsidized in however a small part, by you and the rest of us.
