The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Ridiculous ‘Hate Group’ List

s000016517-300Rest easy: the nation’s watchdogs, patented Hate Detectors gripped in their sweaty palms, are still on the job. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has released its latest report on hate groups, and while the numbers of these vile entities has decreased, the SPLC solons assure us they’re scarier than ever: Mark Potok of the SPLC, trying his best to affect a stiff-backed Joe Friday pose conveying grim and unimpeachable authority, declared: “The radical right is growing leaner and meaner. The numbers are down somewhat, but the potential for violence remains high.” In other words, keep those checks coming, folks!

And they do. The SPLC took in over $38 million in 2011; the previous year, its CEO Richard Cohen earned $351,648, and its notorious Chief Trial Counsel, Morris Dees, pulled in a cool $346,919. All that to keep you safe from the likes of…me. The SPLC lists my website Jihad Watch (www.jihadwatch.org) as a hate group, along with the American Freedom Defense Initiative, of which I am vice president, and its Stop Islamization of America program. My colleague Pamela Geller founded AFDI/SIOA; the SPLC also lists her website Atlas Shrugs (www.pamelageller.com), along with our international umbrella group Stop Islamization of Nations, as hate groups — so Pamela Geller and I are both four hate groups, and between us are responsible for five hate groups. Two people. We are also both the subject of lavish and arguably libelous profiles as “hate group leaders.” The brilliant FrontPage writer Daniel Greenfield’s blog Sultan Knish (http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/) is listed as another hate group. That’s six hate groups, three people. “Leaner and meaner,” indeed!

This demonstrates how risible the SPLC’s claim that there are 939 hate groups currently operating in the U.S. The very label “hate group” conjures up images of KKK members in robes, their venal and stupid faces illumined by the flame of a burning cross – not columnists, commentators, and human rights activists dedicated to defending the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the principle of the equality of rights of all people before the law. 

But that’s the idea. The SPLC’s objective is not to spur rational discussion or debate about what exactly constitutes a “hate group,” and what are or should be the parameters of acceptable political discourse. It is to manipulate people into thinking that mild-mannered writers such as Daniel Greenfield and human rights activists like Pamela Geller are indeed exactly the same as those cross-burning Klansmen, and to be equally as shunned and marginalized.

The SPLC’s Hate Groups list is a cudgel, a tool for the use of Leftist enemies of the freedom of speech. When Pamela Geller or I or some other “hate group leader” is invited to speak somewhere, Leftists and Islamic supremacists avid to shut down honest discussion of jihad terror and Islamic supremacism contact the event organizers, tell them that the SPLC classifies us as “hate group leaders,” and all too often, ignorant or cowardly officials, unaware of or indifferent to how they’re being played and anxious to avoid “controversy,” cancel the event. It works like a charm, in just the way it was intended to work.

These classifications, unsurprisingly, have also become a staple of every report from lazy Leftist journalists. By citing the SPLC as if it were a reliable source, they encourage an uncritical, uninformed public to see its targets as worthy of the opprobrium the Center heaps upon them. It is no surprise that reporters, who tend almost universally to be Leftists, take for granted that the SPLC is some kind of neutral observer, when actually the SPLC is a far-Left attack outfit, using its “hate group” classifications to stigmatize and demonize foes of its political agenda. In these days of the New Black Panthers and the Occupy movement, it lists no Leftist groups as hate groups. Nor does it include any significant number of Islamic jihad groups on the hate group list, and has now even dropped an Ohio branch of the racist, violent and paranoid Nation of Islam from the list.

The SPLC is merely a propaganda organ for the Left, tarring any group that dissents from its extreme political agenda as a “hate group.” And while Potok warns of “right-wing” violence, actually the SPLC itself is more dangerous than its targets: its “hate group” designation against the Family Research Council led one of its followers to storm the FRC offices with a gun, determined to murder the chief of the FRC. This shows that these kinds of charges shouldn’t be thrown around frivolously as tools to demonize and marginalize those whose politics the SPLC dislikes.

There is a great deal more that is wrong with the Southern Poverty Law Center, as this article illustrates. The organization epitomizes the Left’s hypocrisy and its increasing taste for authoritarianism: its fascist impulse to demonize and smear its foes rather than engage them on the level of rational discourse. If freedom is to be preserved in this country, those who value it are going to have to convince their fellow Americans to pause and ask quis custodiet ipso custodes? — Who watches the watchmen? Why is fighting for the freedom of speech and the equality of rights of all people now classified as “hate”? Why is the SPLC an authority that anyone recognizes, given its naked biases?

Conservative groups must stop bowing to smear campaigns orchestrated by Leftist groups with a clear anti-freedom agenda. We will never win the country back without challenging – and absolutely refusing to accept — the authority and reliability of the Left’s self-appointed guardians of acceptable opinion. A good place to start would be to relegate the SPLC to the dustbin of history it has reserved for the foes of Leftist thuggery and jihad terror.

    I have had numerous discussions with several members of the Dallas County Republicans (here in Texas) who quote from the SPLC as a reliable source in characterizing Tea Party groups and groups supporting tougher border enforcement as hate groups. This usually comes up in discussions of how the Republican party is losing the youth and Latino vote and must reject right-wing extremism to win elections.
    My response to them is that the SPLC regards anyone to the right of Lenin as a hate group, and that any conservative who quotes the SPLC as a reliable source is a fool. I would expect that kind of talk from a Democrat organization, but to hear it coming from supporters of the Republican establishment is disturbing to say the least.

    • Davros11

      Thats because there are no “real” republicans anymore, all politicians are just opportunists who want to live an easy care free life off the sweat and blood of middleclass americans. Oh! by the way, they are also commie socialists lovers who really think Lenin was a good guy.

    • A Z

      I read Jihad Watch & Atlas shrugs. So now the SPLC considers me a hater.

      Oh well, I will return the favor. I will tell all friends and associate the true nature of the SPLC and their errrmmm … generous paydays.

  • Gamal

    There is a great article about the Southern Poverty Law Center at http://capitalresearch.org/2012/10/southern-poverty-law-center-wellspring-of-manufactured-hate/

    The article quotes leftists about the SPLC including Nation magazine’s Alexander Cockburn who wrote a scathing article in 2009, “King of the Hate Business.” Recent Republican electoral losses, Cockburn wrote, were
    “horrible news for people who raise money and make money selling the notion there’s a right resurgence out there in the hinterland with massed legions of haters, ready to march down Main Street draped in Klan robes, a copy of “Mein Kampf” tucked under one arm and a Bible under the other. What is the arch-salesman of hate mongering, Mr. Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, going to do now? Ever since 1971, U.S. Postal Service mailbags have bulged with his fundraising letters, scaring dollars out of the pockets of trembling liberals aghast at his lurid depictions of hate-sodden America, in dire need of legal confrontation by the SPLC. (See http://www.creators.com/opinion/alexander-cockburn/king-of-the-hate-business.html.)

    • herb benty

      By the way, even God says we can hate evil. Another natural right the left would like to remove.

  • Gamal

    More from that great article: ”

    Conclusion
    The Southern Poverty Law Center is a wealthy, well-connected, organized attack machine of the extreme political Left. It shares strategies, goals, and tactics with other similar organizations and colludes with them in campaigns of defamation, disinformation and legal threats to silence and/or criminalize political opponents.

    The SPLC has unjustifiably secured itself a position of influence within our government and society. Its very presence threatens our freedoms and First Amendment rights. It abuses our system of justice, while hiding behind a Constitution for which it has little respect.

    • Rick

      Agreed. Seems that the SPLC qualifies as a hate group even more that the groups listed by them.

      • john miles

        One thing that I always find interesting is that although many people publish how much money the SPLC has–close to a quarter of a billion now I guess, no one ever seems to name the individual donors. Either the SPLC is very good at keeping that secret or else there must be another eplanination.

        • D_Smith2020

          Is it any secret? George Soros.

          • john miles

            well I realize that Soros is a big donor. But from what I’ve heard virtually all major Jewish organizations and, of course, some others as well fund them But many of these individuals and groups don’t really want that fact to be known.

    “A good place to start would be to relegate the SPLC to the dustbin of history it has reserved for the foes of Leftist thuggery and jihad terror.”

    No, that’s the end goal. Rather, a good place to start would be for one of their targets to sue them for libel and defamation. I admit though, given their war chest and the legal power they could assemble, it would be tough.

  • Paul Austin Murphy

    It’s brutally simple.

    According to The Southern Poverty Law Center, if the hate is politically correct, then it’s *not* hate. If the hate’s politically incorrect, then it *is* hate.

    Whether or not some group is a “hate group” is determined, according to SPLC, entirely by its politics.

    If the hate is Leftist, Islamic or black, it’s not hate.

    If the hate is in any way right-wing, Christian or white, it’s hate.

    The logic is simple. The logic is absurdly Leftist.

    • Omar

      Don’t forget that hate directed against black conservatives is is not regarded as “hate” by the left because according to lunatics like uptownsteve, black conservatives are “Uncle Toms” for supporting true liberalism (which is classical liberalism, not the so-called “liberalism” of the left) and being American patriots.

      • uptownsteve

        This is total silliness. Black conservatives are despised by the black community because they travel in small packs of opportunists spreading the ugliest lies and venom about their own people.

        • UCSPanther

          Ever heard of freedom of political beliefs?

          Obviously you haven’t. This isn’t Belarus or North Korea…

          • Headed4TheHills

            UCSPanther, let me tell you something. uptownsteve is a Liberal Obamadrone, bought and paid for. His “opinions” are pulled from the Big Book of Alinsky, his Messiah is Chairman Maobama, and his favorite drink is Progressive Kool Ade.

            And to save ol’ steve the trouble…HT4H is a right-wing nutjub, a Bible-thumpin’, gun-totin’, God-fearin’ redneck of the lowest sort. I believe what the Bible says. I believe Obama is doing his level best to bring down America, and my favorite drink is Mt. Dew.

            And save your typer, steve. I gots no time nor inclination to listen to your drivel.

          • UCSPanther

            True. That troll has spewed racism against white folk, such as generalizing us all as trailer trash.
            Hypocrisy is its name.

          • uptownsteve

            Who is suppressing the black conservatives’ freedom of speech or belief? They just don’t want to be called out for their lies and self-hatred.

            Don’t forget Farrakhan and Wright. Both are race-obsessed hate mongers, too.

          • Drakken

            The black mindset on full display, if they disagree with it, it is lie according to them, no wonder why Africa is as dysfunctional as they come and Detroit is the model of things to come.

        • Omar

          The black community does not despise black conservatives, you a**hole. The black community is simply controlled by the left, you loon. Black conservatives simply expose what the left does in regards to having that political monopoly. You want to talk about insulting people based on race? Talk about Tim Wise, who falsely claims that most whites are still racists and bigots, despite contemporary evidence to the contrary. And you are a Marxist bigot. Fact-check.

          • uptownsteve

            I think I know a bit more about black folks than you do and believe me. The same Toms that you on the right present as “credits to their race” like Sowell, Elder, Walter Williams and rest are rightly despised among their own people for their lies and duplicity.

          • Omar

            Shut the f**k up, you annoying lying pain in the behind. The black conservatives mentioned above are respected by a large portion of the American people, including many other blacks. You are annoyed because they expose and discredit your lies and propaganda about American politics. Tim Wise, on the other hand, smears other people for the pleasure of bigots like you. Fact-check.

          • Rob Hobart

            No, you clearly know nothing about anyone.

          • A Z

            There are only 3 people on the radio, who can hold a candle to Rush Limbaugh. Walter Williams, Gordon Liddy, &, Jerry Doyle.

            Walter Williams was so good, I was afraid they might replace him with Walter Williams. Walter should have a nationally syndicated show. Walter is not as good, but I think it is due to age catching up with him. Back in the day when he first co-hosted for Rush he was a few points better than Rush IMHO.

          • Seek

            Wrong. The blacks control the white leftists, not the other way around. Whites have become black political prison bitches.

          • Omar

            Shut the f**k up, you racist. You are the white nationalist version of uptownsteve. Both of you are hate mongers. Learn from facts, you loon.

        • Wolfthatknowsall

          Black conservatives are hated by the black community because they’ve made something of their life with little or no help from the government. They are hated because they want blacks to take responsibility for their own lives. They are hated because they believe in the traditional family, and also in an America that has provided them with the opportunity to make their dreams a reality.

          My Comanche ancestors left the reservations early in the 20th Century. They didn’t stop being Comanche. They became Americans. Those that stayed still live in poverty, with high alcoholism and suicide rates.

          If you don’t like what life has thrown at you, Steve, take advantage of being an American. Wake up! Make a life for yourself and your children.

            “Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets,” Greenwald writes, “and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable.”

            Don’t reply to trolls like uptown, they merely want to provoke, agitate & spread Progressive propaganda; they aren’t interested in truth or engaging in civil discourse. They’re just not worth the effort.

          • Wolfthatknowsall

            My friend, I generally comment on articles, and give my take on them. Although I agree with, in principle, you must understand something.

            I spent 30 years of my life in academia, dealing with honest students being led by the nose by the “professional” students … the 30-50 year-old Marxists fighting against everything that I stood for.

            I love the life of a storyteller … telling real stories from my life, and the lives of others. Nothing is more effective against the trolls than this.

            Perhaps, I’m just an incurable optimist. Deep inside, I believe that many trolls, including the worst, will regret what they are doing, now. It may take decades for this epiphany to strike. But I think it will happen. When it does, I hope they remember some phrase or story that I have related which helps them get there … long after I have left this world.

          • A Z

            It might take decades for some.

            The best thing to do IMO, when they change is some time not to bring it up or rub “their face in it” with I told you so.

            Not saying you would, but 15 or 20 years ago I would have been tempted and I know others would be as well.

          • Wolfthatknowsall

            When they do change, you put your hand out, shake theirs, and say, “Welcome, friend.” Everyone changes over the course of their life … many for the worst, some for the best.

          Any one with eyes or a mind can see and read about what blacks stand for. They stand and preach for more crimes against innocent people, if something does not go their way they promise more violence against innocent bystanders. black preachers are forever preaching about the devil whites and killing Jews. why do yo think their youths are always ganging up on innocents or going on mob sprees through markets beating up people?

      • Paul Austin Murphy

        Do they still that term – ‘Uncle Tom’? I know they think blacks who aren’t Black Panthers, rappers, criminals, Nation of Islam, etc. are Uncle Toms, I just wondered if they still used that dismissive term.

        It happens in the UK with Muslims too. White, middle-class Trotskyists or progressives define all genuinely moderate Muslims (the few that there are), or non-Islamists, as Uncle Toms – or traitors to their “people”. Every time a Muslim speaks out against terrorism, or the sexual grooming by Muslim gangs, or female genital mutilation, various Leftists from the SWP, university think tanks, The Guardian, etc. don’t like it.

        UK Leftists actually WANT their Muslims to be Islamist or extreme because it suits their agenda. They USE and sympathise with the extremism; just as US Leftists do with “radical” and criminal American blacks.

        What a state of affairs: white, middle-class Leftists defining who is a true black and who is a true Muslim.

    • Donotask

      So relieved to read these responses. I stumbled across the SPLC last month, and was hurt and stunned to see who they listed as hate groups. It was out right hate in of itself, and many of these groups were definitely NOT evil or bad in any way. Scary politics that they hold 1st place on a Google search!

  • Demetrius Minneapolis

  • Paul Austin Murphy

    In the UK we have have Liberty, run by Shami Chakrabarti.

    Since a (violent) revolution is no longer on the books, it is carried out in various other ways – by proxy.

    Antonio Gramsci ordered Marxists/Leftists to “take over the institutions” in the early 1930s. Since then, Leftists have almost been entirely successful – at least here in the UK: large parts of the BBC, large parts of the universities, large parts of the race and rights industries, local councils, newspapers, even parts of the Church of England, Methodist churches and charities, etc.

    One revolutionary activity is revolution-through-rights-activism. Rights activism is a way of constantly chipping away at what they call “the capitalist hegemony”. It is where the “permanent revolution” continues – a revolution that has been relentless since the 1960s.

    Groups like Southern Poverty Law Center and Liberty will keep on going until society and the state is exactly how they want it to be; with all politically-incorrect elements completely silenced or worse.

  • http://www.clarespark.com/ Clare Spark

    I don’t agree that the origins of hate speech legislation was the Left, unless you count WASP liberal elites as “the left.” I prefer to call them what they called themselves: “Socially responsible capitalists.” See http://clarespark.com/2013/06/23/the-origins-of-political-correctness/: “The origins of political correctness”.

    Liberals are always the first to use the word hate. It helps stifle an argument they can’t win. It changes the focus of positions they cannot defend. It sways those who are too lazy or disinterested in logic.

    Just another reason to repeal the 14th, 16th and 17th amendments which will Restore States rights and powers to protect their citizens from these national bigots.

      So you don’t want people to elect their senators? Why not?

      • GoodBusiness

        The Founders, Framers and Ratifiers designed the Senate to be the Representative of the State Legislatures in the Federal Government – They were elected by the People by using their State elected Representative. By them being Appointed by the Legislatures no UNFUNDED MANDATE would be forced upon the States, if a Senator voted to bury States in required spending then that Senator would be recalled.

        The House of representatives is the People’s house the Senate is the State’s house.

        http://articlevprojecttorestoreliberty.com/17th-support-disucussion.html

        It is not the direct election it is that it has left the State without power to protect itself and the people from Federal tyranny. Look at the votes to allow the EPA and other agencies like NSA, FDA, USDA and the other alphabet agencies which are usurped powers over and above the LIMITS of Article I section 8 enumerated powers to take our property.

        • Omar

          I understand your concerns about federal abuse of power, but before the 17th Amendment was ratified, many state legislatures and the senators they appointed to Congress were corrupt and were doing all sorts of things without the consent of the people. Besides, we live in a representative democracy, and senators represent the interests of the people of the state. So, that’s why the 17th Amendment must be kept. You believe in individual rights, right? So, how do individuals benefit from the 17th Amendment being repealed? If anything, we would lose the right to vote for some of our national leaders. So the 17th Amendment must be kept.

          • GoodBusiness

            NO we live in a Representative Constitutional Republic – States are also Republics. Now that being said we select our Representatives by a Democratic vote where each is selected by a Majority vote.

            The Issues with the Senator selection was grossly overstated. Look to day at the so called Democratic elections – how much of the money and TV/Media 24/7/365 advertising is from inside the State? ? Well now who is that Senator beholding toward – the people or the money factions?

            The State has lost any Representation in Washington and the Founders, Framers and Ratifiers knew that would destroy States rights and powers under the tenth amendment. They were correct. So, let me put it another way – your State Senators are owned by out of State interests so even if there are issues at the State level with selection we are close and can talk eye to eye with our Legislators . . have you ever even once in your life spoken one on one with your Senator?

            The one with the most money wins 9 out of ten times. the system is broken.

            Do not forget the Current TOTAL CORRUPTION IN THE CURRENT SENATE . . does your Senator vote to support the citizens of your state or do they make deals to bring PORK home? You speak of corruption in the days before the 17th was Ratified – very minor compared with today.

            All must remember that the Founders, Framers, and Ratifiers created a DUAL FEDERALISM government – the Federal and 50 Separate Republics. When you have a general direct election of Senators you get the power of money dictating to the Senators – Did your State give even 50% to the Campaigns of your Senators – my bet is most of the money came from special interests OUTSIDE OF YOUR STATE . . so tell me again who do these elected Senators represent?

            17th Amendment Overview – Part 1

            The 17th Amendment of the U. S. Constitution was ratified in May, 1913 under President Woodrow Wilson – one of the most Progressive presidents our Country has had. From the 1880’s into the 1920’s, the “Progressive and Socialist movement” grew and included well- known political names like Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Robert LaFollette, John Dewey and William Jennings Bryan.

            One of their main objectives was to convince others that the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence – that promoted “separation of powers”, “individual natural rights of the people” and “checks and balances” -were roadblocks to regulatory and redistributive policy ambitions.

            It took 134 years for politicians to come discover and realize the power of their organization (the government in 1779-1913). Sadly, with the ‘practice’ of politics, the system becomes corrupted and the politicians ‘worry’ most about party and personal power than serving best the people and the states they represent in the service of good and honest governance.

            In the original Constitution, our Founding Fathers gave the state governments a strong voice in national government by requiring the states to select two Senators per state chosen by the STATE legislature. See Article 1, Section 3 of the Constitution.

    The SPLC can try to lump conservatives in with scum like David Duke, but it won’t work.

    • Headed4TheHills

      You obviously have no idea how twisted the thinking of Leftists is. They can spin the facts so much they’d have written affidavits from “reliable” witnesses who would swear Mother Theresa, Adolf Hitler, and David Duke all had Sunday brunch together last week.

      • UCSPanther

        And they spin so much that if you hooked them up to a generator, they could power a large city…

    “Some Muslims in Yemen force 8 year old girls to get married to men in their 60s, so all Muslims in America must want to force 8 year old girls to get married to men in their 60s. Therefore, we must ban Islam in America and forcefully deport anyone who violate the ban”.
    Yeah, that isn’t hate speech at all.

There is also no significant difference between the SPLC Hate Groups list and Discover the Networks. Although, I can’t stand either group, I am proud I to say that I shamed Mark Potok into adding the Jewish Defense League to the hate groups list. And yes, two people do in fact administrate five hate groups. It’s easy when Mr. Spencer does it from a UPS Store P.O. Box and a MacBook Air.

    Could Some Internet ‘Trolls’ Actually Be Government Operatives?

    “Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets,” Greenwald writes, “and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable.”

  • trapper

    Of course the irony is that the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Democrat Party are hate groups.

    The SPLC’s definition of a hate group appears to be quite simple: If the SPLC hates you, then you are a hate group!

  • Rachel

    Great article. How come you didn’t mention http://www.thereligionofpeace? They are also a site that the SPLC absurdly designated as a “hate group.”

  • John Smith

    When Blacks want their people to survive into the future, it’s called self-determination.

    When Asians want their people to survive into the future, it’s called self-determination.

    Those who say they are anti-Hate, are really anti-white.

See France now paying Israel/Jews reparations after 70 years too long. See the Brits true bloody history as Genocide. It must be the reason for HB 3741 by our Commie black caucus outlawing the death penalty by hanging for genocide,chem/bio attacks and every single and the very worst crimes.

    Now for the REST of the STORY:

    The following is a list of U.S.-based organizations classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as anti-gay hate groups. The SPLC defines hate groups as those that “… have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” The SPLC states that hate group activities may include speeches, marches, rallies, meetings, publishing, leafleting—and criminal acts such as violence.[1]
    The SPLC classifies organizations that propagate “known falsehoods – claims about LGBT people that have been thoroughly discredited by scientific authorities – and repeated, groundless name-calling” as anti-gay hate groups. The SPLC states that “viewing homosexuality as unbiblical does not qualify organizations for listing as hate groups.”[2] President of the SPLC Richard Cohen clarified “[B]y ‘known falsehoods,’ we mean such things as asserting that gays and lesbians are more disposed to molesting children than heterosexuals – which the overwhelming weight of credible scientific research has determined is patently untrue. Nowhere in our report do we equate taking a position against same-sex marriage with hate speech.”[3]

    For the past 40-years the SPLC has been providing cover for BLACK SAVAGES in PUBLIC SCHOOLS throughout AMERICA!
    1) https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HTg45g85WP0
    2) http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=91408
    Hey Mark POTOK, do you think that all the “KNOCKOUT WHITEYERS”, “POLAR BEAR HUNTERS” and “CRACKA SMACKAS” HATE WHITE PEOPLE?
    In 2013, over 34,000 WHITE WOMEN were RAPED by BLACK MEN. Interestingly only 8-BLACK WOMEN were RAPED by WHITE MEN!
    BLACK THUGS KILL nearly 40 of U.S. each and every day and SERIOUSLY INJURE another 1,800 of U.S. in our HOMES, our SCHOOLS, our PARKS and our BUSINESSES!
    Now for the REST of the STORY:
    WARNING this BLOG contains nothing POLITICALLY CORRECT – So LIBERALS BEWARE!
    I was the DISCIPLINE FACILATOR in the JEFFERSON PARISH PUBLIC SYSTEM for years and years it was me who DECIDED who went to the ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLS – BLACK SAVAGES SIGNIFICANTLY – DISPROPORTUNATELY were the ones that I sent off to ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLS! Primarily because BLACK SAVAGES SIGNIFICANTLY – DISPROPORTUNATELY were the ones PERPATRATING the VIOLENT CRIMES on CAMPUSES!
    FACT: In 2012, according to the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT of JUSTICE – BLACKS were 63-times more likely to perpetrate a VIOLENT CRIME against a WHITE PERSON than VICE-VERSA – so why would the RATE be any different within AMERICA’S SCHOOL SYSTEM! Actually the RATE of CRIMES being perpetrated by BLACK STUDENTS on WHITE STUDENTS was much higher than 63 to 1.
    I fought with ZIONNISTS over at the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER on a daily basis. Those LILY WHITE LYING LIBERAL BASSTURDS did everything possible to keep me from calling “A SPADE A SPADE” and doing what I needed to do to keep all of the STUDENTS SAFE in JEFFERSON PARISH.
    SPLC STUDENT ADVOCATES and ATTORNEYS THREATENED to SUE me PERSONALLY on NUMEROUS OCCASIONS if I didn’t COMPLY with their LILY WHITE LYING LIBERAL POLITICALLY CORRECT ZIONNIST DEMANDS! They often DEMANDED that SCHOOLS IGNOR VIOLENT and extremely inappropriate BLACK STUDENT BEHAVIORS.
    REGULAR TEACHERS, many of whom had over 30-STUDENTS in their CLASSROOM, were actually being INSTRUCTED to CONSTANTLY MONITOR and REWARD UNRULY TEACHERS were being FORCED to ALLOCATE all of their teaching time on UNRULY STUDNETS is in FACT, a VIOLATION of other WELL-BEHAVED and MOTIVATED STUDENT’S CIVIL RIGHT to a FREE, FAIR and SAFE PUBLIC EDUCATION.
    Needless to say the SPLC and I ENJOYED a very CONTENTIOUS RELATIONSHIP, as for BACK UP from other SCHOOL SYSTEM EMPLOYEES – well there just wasn’t ANY, NONE, ZILCH!
    As a SCHOOL SYSTEM EMPLOYEE, sadly, I often I could tell whether or not CENTRAL OFFICE ADMINISTRATORS were REPRESENTING the STUDENTS, TEACHERS or SCHOOL PRINCIPALS of the JEFFERSON PARISH PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM or the ZIONNISTS BASSTURDS over at the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW SYSTEM.
    The SPLC was constantly HARRASSING the JPPSS by DEFENDING the ACTIONS and BEHAVIORS of DANGEROUS and UNRULY BLACK STUDENTS – many of whom were CONVICTED VIOLENT FELONS!
    The SPLC DEMANDED that these VILOENT BLACK STUDENTS remain on REGULAR SCHOOL CAMPUSES – no matter what kinds of VIOLENT and DANGEROUS BEHAVIORS they were EXHIBITING.
    SCHOOLS in the JPPSS were being made UNSAFE by all of the ZIONNIST BULLIES over at the SOUTHERN POVERTY SCHOOL SYSTEM.
    QUESTION: How many other PUBLIC SCHOOLS SYSTEMS were being BULLIED by the ZIONNIST SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW SINNER back then?
    MORE IMPORTANT QUESTION: How many PUBLIC SCHOOLS SYSTEMS are being BULLIED by the ZIONNIST SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER right NOW, TODAY, at this very MOMENT?
    Sadly, my GUESS is “TOO MANY TO COUNT”!

    Left-wingers cannot stand being called out for their hate. The SPLC has endorsed left-wing terrorism when it invited unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers for an interview and to give him a role in the Center’s “Teaching Tolerance” program. Ayers was known to have said that about 25 million Americans “needed to die” in order for the WU’s Communist “revolution” to succeed. Given that the U.S. population during the late 1960s and early 1970s was between 220 and 240 million people, that meant that over 10% of the country’s population had to be eliminated in order for the WU’s “revolution” to succeed.

    If I see a young black woman with two or three small children in tow, there is a statistical probability of about 70% that there is not a father for those children in her life.

    If I see five or six black youths in hoodies on the sidewalk, statistics tell me that it might be wise to put my right hand on the .380 auto that I carry, cross the street, and try to avoid them.

    Is suggesting that most blacks take responsibility for their own lives racist? If it is, explain.

    My own father walked the roads of central Indiana, during the Great Depression, looking for work. A man stopped his car and asked him if he was looking for work. He said, “Yes, sir.” The man asked him to get in the car.

    He took him to a shoe store, because he noticed that my father was barefoot. With a brand-new pair of shoes, and two pairs of socks, he took him to a factory where he was a foreman, introduced him to the boss, and dad was hired.

    The man who did all of this for him was black …

    Later, when my father became a master mechanic in Chicago, and owned his own garage, he made a point of hiring black men, looking for work, because they worked hard, and he had a debt to repay.

    Because of that black man who helped my father, dad raised a middle class family, and sent two of us to college. I went on to a PhD from Princeton.

    Dad taught us well.

    When I taught philosophy, every one of the black students in my sections worked hard, and earned good grades. I was proud to have them as students.

    The fact of the matter is the black community in general clings to a victim mentality and buys the NAACP propaganda that “racism” is the reason for the problems there. And blacks represent a higher proportion of food stamp recipients in relation to their percentage of the population as well as criminal offenders.
    Thanks once again for proving to the civilized world you are a deluded liberal

    Yes it does. That’s why black conservatives are so hated when they tell people all their problems are not due to “racism”

  • Notalibfool

    Then you must be in in pain from reading the comments here. RACIST!

  • UCSPanther

    The British had some clever ways of dealing with rebellious African tribals…

  • Drakken

    Yeah really? I used to love playing you people in hockey, your lack of impulse control made it easy to score goals, and you want to be my huckleberry? Too funny

  • Western Canadian

    Sure, if he had 30 of his friends helping him…..

  • uptownsteve

    For you information RACIST, the majority of the black community are working to middle class employed law abiding citizens. Clowns like you spew this “victim mentality” and “lack of responsibility” garbage in order to rationalize your pathetic resentment and fear of black people. The number of criminals in the black community are a distinct and small minority. Racists like you use statistical hyperbole to justify your hate. I feel sorry for you.

  • DennisMets

    if white people told its people to go on crime sprees because a court verdict did not go its way and they ask people to beat up blacks, there would be a problem. But blacks like the panthers can call for more crime and hate against jews and whites and nothing is said

  • uptownsteve

    C’mon and try it in America in 2014. PLEASE.

  • Drakken

    The Belgians also had the problem under control, funny thing is, when the Europeans ran Africa, things were progressing, now that they are in control, it is steadily devolving to the stone age with modern weapons.

    What did I tell you about that race card boy? I told you to shove it where the sun don’t shine buckwheat, you are obviously too stupid and ignorant to get it. Or do I need to slow it down for you to understand it? Ohhh you served in uniform, so did I, but unlike you, I actually served in combat, unlike you who were in the rear with the gear. The only patriotism you have is to the black plantation of blaming whitey for all your problems and screaming racist everytime someone disagrees with your ignorant azz.

  • Western Canadian

    You? From a family with a military history? Not a chance. The military is very much made up of people who LOVE their country, and are around 80% conservative… and the other 20% rarely or never spew the hard left hatred and bogus charges of racism, while themselve being as viciously racist as you …
    If your previous generations of family DID belong in the military, they must be turning in their graves over your sick and hate filled rants.

  • Drakken

    Hmmmm 12 % of the population versus 76 %, you flunked lunch and math didn’t you?

  • UCSPanther

    Yep. We have ourselves an internet tough guy.

  • Drakken

    I think we should give him the Chippewa name of Kee bee. It means running dummy. Or if he Cherokee have something better?

  • Notalibfool

    Grow up, would you RACIST. You can’t cry RACIST every time someone disagrees with you RACIST. And by playing the race card every chance you get, you are only proving that YOU are a RACIST. Understand, RACIST?

  • Donotask

    ‘Racist,’ ‘bigot’, ‘xenophobic’ are all trendy PC words used when you are losing a debate. I can’t believe anyone with any pride would even resort to saying them anymore. Most people shamefully use them incorrectly too. Racism is the belief that your race is superior over another race. Pointing out statistics, or other such facts, or trying to preserve your culture, economy, and people have absolutely nothing to do with a superiority complex. You do need to grow up.

    Criminals are a very large, not small, portion of the black world. And the notion that blacks are natural middle-class types is ridiculous. Even those who live responsibly hold aggressively anti-white attitudes. I’ve seen it a hundred times.

  • nomoretraitors

    Save your sympathy for yourself. You’re too dumb and deluded for decent company

    Birth rates for women on welfare are three times higher than for
    those who are not on welfare. Within a single year, the census survey
    found that unmarried women had twice as high a birth rate as married
    women. These demographics help perpetuate poverty and feed a welfare
    death spiral in which more money has to be spent on social services for a
    less productive tax base.

    Children raised on welfare are far more likely to end up on welfare than the children of working families.

    Fertility rates fall sharply above the $50,000 income line and with a
    graduate degree; that has ominous implications in a country whose
    socio-economic mobility rates continue to fall.

    Progressive activists still talk as if we can afford any level of
    social service expenditures if we raise taxes on the rich, but workers
    can’t be created by raising taxes. Everything that the left has done,
    from breaking up the family to driving out manufacturing industries to
    promoting Third World immigration has made its own social welfare
    spending completely unsustainable.

    By 2031, nearly a century after the Social Security Act,
    an estimated 75 million baby boomers will have retired. Aside from the
    demographic disparity in worker ages is a subtler disparity in worker
    productivity and independence as senior citizens are left chasing social
    spending dollars that are increasingly going to a younger population.
    ObamaCare with its Medicare Advantage cuts was a bellwether of the shift
    in health care spending from seniors to the welfare population.

    Increasing welfare is only a form of Death Panel economic triage that
    doesn’t compensate for the lack of productive workers. It’s easy to
    model Obamerica as Detroit, a country with a huge indigent welfare
    population and a small wealthy tax base. The model doesn’t work in
    Detroit and it’s flailing in New York, California and every city and
    state where it’s been tried.

    After a century of misery, the left still hasn’t learned that there
    is no substitute for the middle class. It’s not just running out of
    money, it’s running out of people.

    The welfare state has no future. It is only a question of what terms
    it will implode on and what will happen to the social welfare political
    infrastructure when it does. The violence in Venezuela and the slow
    death of Detroit give us insights into the coming collapse of the
    welfare state.

    The Panthers are a hate group as evil as the KKK. For some reason they get a free pass to do as they please, no matter how illegal.

  • Yasha7

    You left out “white trailer trash”. Another fave.

  • The Facts

    I understand why they don’t want to own up.

  • Seek

    I prefer the KKK over the Panthers. At least the KKK (what’s left of it) fights for white interests.

  • Omar

    Shut the f**k up, you racist. You are no better than uptownsteve. Both of you post hate. The only difference is the race. Hate is not an American value, you racist loon.

  • Western Canadian

    Both are criminal groups who fight for themselves, and both should be shut down.

  • Omar

    And you harbor racist thoughts against blacks, David Duke, Jr. You are essentially the same as uptownsteve. Only the race is different. Nobody likes racists nor bigots, you lunatic white nationalist. Quit trolling, you racist loon. Take your race hatred to Stormfront or American Renaissance and leave us alone.

  • dennis x

    You didn’t serve in the us military. I feel sorry for my friend who is returning from tours in Kuwait and Afganistan. She put her life on the line for low life racists like you.

  • Drakken

    And your another dumbazz kaffir who talks out of his black azz before his mouth knows better. You can take your bloody race card and shove it as well. Your a black nationalist with the x after your name, your buddy Farrakhan hates whitey as much as you do, your welcome.
