Washington Post ^ | 07.10.2014 | Mark Berman

The standoff between rancher Cliven Bundy and federal agents, which escalated into a national news story earlier this year as armed supporters of Bundy gathered at his Nevada ranch, “invigorated an extremist movement” in the country, according to a report issued Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.

For the Left dissenting against criminals like Reagan was patriotic.

Dissenting against the Meccan Candidate, not so much.

well, gee, Mark Berman, I guess if you desperately need to sell a story, sticking Bundy in there somewhere in the first sentence might work. I guess we should start every story about Obama with a reference to Bill Ayers - well we could if we wanted to cheapen ourselves, too.

“according to a report issued Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

Anything pro-American is “unpatriotic” according to this insane lefty group.

Of course. Our friends at the Southern Poverty Law Center. Maybe they’ll all come down with TB.

You know what the SPLC is doing here? They are trying to BOOST “anti-gummint hate”.

They know which side of their political bread is buttered, and they’re laying on thick, here.

Same for Travis McGee’s Reconquista book —just today they’ve written the longest, most detailed PROMOTION of his book that I’ve ever seen:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Matt+Bracken

What the SPLC wrote, condemning this book, will make it IRRESISTABLE to you:

Hippies getting shot, a nasty, lezbo agent is strangled in a bubble bath —the works.

How odd.

We know of no one who is pro-government, except leftist mental cases, all the kings men, including those on the local, state or fed government payrolls etc...

Just the opposite. Rather than invigorating the extremist movement in power in our White House, the Bundy standoff weakened that movement and drove America’s enemies to exercise a little caution.

SPLC, the Anti-White KKK, at it again

Anything white folks do to protect their rights, or to protect themselves, the SPLC calls them “Racist”

The SPLC is a hate group

I don’t know how this issue invigorated the Southern Poverty Law Center, the most extremist group in the United States.

I don't think that they are insane. They are just anti-American poverty pimps that make money creating misery under the guise of "liberal civil rights".

I'm pretty sure that they moved their money off shore a few years ago...

It invigorated a liberty loving movement and antityranny movment.

Hopefully this illegal alien crap Obama has foisted on us will do more to invigorate it. Cause even more is at stake than at Bundy.

“Invigorated”?

Well that is what happens when the stewards of the law allow their authority to be challenged. Even monkeys like Al Capone knew that they had to answer physical challenges in real time or suffer the universally known and understood consequences. However much obozo is ignoring the moment he know at least in what passes for his ganglia that he fecked up ROYALLY.

Few people anywhere at the time or afterwards seemed to realize the import of the government backdown at the Bundy ranch. Most people seemed to completely ignore it. It was a watershed moment and one that will be referred to, picked over and analyzed years from now as the moment bloodshed was assured

Southern Poverty Law Center.

The SPLC is an amazing organization run by Nazis who have the ability to scare little old Jewish ladies in New York City to donate money for their impending destruction.

Always remember that “Splick” founder Morris Deas promised in 1975 that within five years he would put the National Rifle Association “out of business”.

Thirty-four years after the NRA was supposed to go toes up, it’s still here, Morris. Waddaya think about that, punk?

He’s 75 & claims he can still punch the lights out of any rightwinger who gets in his face.
