Posted on 03/26/2014 7:41:22 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016
Christian groups are celebrating with the news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation appears to have scrubbed the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from its hate crimes webpage, where the controversial group was listed as a resource and referred to as a partner in public outreach.
A letter to the U.S. Department of Justice, drafted by Lieutenant General (Ret.) William G. Boykin, Executive Vice President of the Family Research Council (FRC), calls such an association "completely unacceptable."
Signed by fourteen other conservative and Christian leaders, the letter calls SPLC "a heavily politicized organization producing inaccurate and biased data on 'hate groups' not hate crimes." It accuses the SPLC of "providing findings that are not consistent with trends found in the FBI statistics." Where the FBI has found hate crimes and hate groups declining significantly in the past ten years, SPLC claims hate groups have increased 67.3% since 2000. Where once SPLC's hate list was reserved for groups like the Aryan Nation and the KKK, in 2010 SPLC started citing as hate groups those Christian groups that oppose same-sex marriage or believe homosexuality is not inborn, or are otherwise critical of homosexuality. Among the Christian groups targeted by SPLC was FRC.

Excellent news! the death of the communist front group, SPLC, begins now.
Even tehy won’t say it, but I will: SPLC is a hate group. Period.
What they shoulda done is move it to the other side of the line, and declared it a Hate Crime Instigator.
Wasn’t copying, honest.
Sure is a lot of anti-liberal things happening at the FBI today...
Hope it’s a trend.
OH NO! Now the FBI won’t be able to find me!
That...and Morris Dees' personal piggybank.
Maybe the FBI was getting sick and tired of all the multiple false leads?
And also because all the false leads were always out in the country and far far away from the in town doughnut shops...
It’s way past time they did but it’s good news.
I prefer the term ‘Cultural Terrorist Organizations’. And I apply it to the Freedom From Religion Foundation too.
Great. They are a hate group.
I wonder if Morris Dees hates his own skin color?
You’re a celebrity. LOL
A Self Loathing...Negro? Could VERY WELL be!
Nah, them Feebs’id have a purty day-off drivin’ in the senshine and then sit down with the milishamun for some beer ‘n’ tasty ribs en sech ‘efore heddin’ home. They didn’ mine them false leads at’all.
I’m starting to see the Country moving towards Putin and just dismissing the President and his party.
Good news! Let’s keep up the pressure on other groups and issues too!
The FBI must see the corruption tribunals in the future and are trying to save themselves. They will turn on Zer0, Holder and the rest of the anti-constitutional thugs to save their own skins. They see the way the wind blows.
Hauling that fugly poindexter who runs SPLC before a treason tribunal would be sweet.
Dees was going rabid by the early 90’s. He was merely a drama queen in the mid 80’s.
“the Federal Bureau of Investigation appears to have scrubbed the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from its hate crimes webpage,”
About ten years late!
I applaud the F.B.I. for doing the right thing and finally coming to their senses.
The question now becomes:does dropping them as a “resource” and a “partner” mean the SPLC’s videos and mailings labelling Christian and conservative groups as “hate groups will cease”? They were taking these videos to schools and, in my opinion, inciting hate and poisoning the minds of children and younger people and including many adults.
Surprised. Pleasantly surprised.
Morris appears to be octoroon.
Yes! It drives me nuts when the lbierals site this as an authority. All it is is a leftist group that labels organizations they disagree with as “hate” groups. As the article goes on to state, the SPLC is quiet when it comes to radical leftist organizations.
> Freedom From Religion Foundation too.
Try filing a complaint against a Muslim cultural event or demonstration with the FFRF. You’ll never hear back from them. Why? Christians are eaceful and passive. The Muslims reported would drive to their headquarters and blow the place up.
Very much surprised.
Even little ol’ HMS surprise was on their list. True!
Hopefully the next Congress will take steps to shut them down.
Yes, when this happened back when, I got a call from my friends offering congratulations
