The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.
In mid-April, the largely discredited group released a “Special Report” entitled “Agenda 21: The UN, Sustainability and Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory.” The document tries to link opposition to the international “sustainable-development” schemes to the so-called “right-wing.” However, even in Alabama, where the SPLC is based, that discredited talking point has been exposed as ridiculous. Consider, for example, the fact that every single member of the state legislature, including all Democrats, voted in 2012 for a law to protect private property by officially banning UN Agenda 21.

When it comes to the SPLC, anyone can be identified as a "terrorist" if certain conditions are met:
1. You disagree with TPTB
2. You are white
Should about cover it...

To further show how easily the SPLC tar brushes anyone as a hate group or extremist, regardless of actual facts, they evens have a "file" on Alex Jones:
I think Alex Jones is an idiot, an ass clown, and a complete joke, but I would never class the guy as a "hate group" or as a dangerous extremist. He's an entertainer, everyone's favorite peddler of doom porn.
Just because someone holds far out beliefs does not mean they are a hate group. Maybe SPLC needs to check out the first amendment sometime, that part of the constitution that says people have a right to believe whatever nonsense they want.
And maybe actually look up the definition of hate group in the mean time.
