FBI Dumps Southern Poverty Law Center As Hate Crimes Resource
Breitbart ^ | 03-26-2014 | Austin Ruse

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.

The southern Poverty Lie Center is nothing more than an advocacy group.

What they shoulda done is move it to the other side of the line, and declared it a Hate Crime Instigator.

Hope it’s a trend.

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...

I prefer the term ‘Cultural Terrorist Organizations’. And I apply it to the Freedom From Religion Foundation 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.

Dees was going rabid by the early 90’s. He was merely a drama queen in the mid 80’s.

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.

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.

It's about time. Next is confronting all the Muslim groups, with CAIR being at the top, that were instrumental in the purge of anything Muslim or ‘insensitive’ in their training manuals. The PC police have decimated any talk about the Muslim 100 year plan to promote Muslim ideology, the Muslim Brotherhood Project and the 50 or so Muslim groups infiltrating our American culture. Until the current occupant of the WH and FBI leave, I'm not holding my breath, but good move getting rid of Dees. It all boils down to common sense in confronting the threats we face.
