The Southern Poverty Law Center....creates hate groups out of thin air by constantly expanding the definition of hate. The need to keep themselves in
business and having the first Mulatto President in our history has given them a new focus. Pretty simple.
They attack anyone who supports protecting our borders or anyone who opposes Immigration reform in any way.
Boom! You are a bad guy in their eyes.
Support Israel? You're just a radical Zionist (all the while SPLC borders on anti Semitism).
Oppose the use of Govt. Drones and surveillance of Americans. You're an extremist because you're not in lock step with the current administration.
I'm not surprised to see that they have found a happy lap dog within the LA Times...
Our Nation's richest "civil rights org."
As of October 2008, the group's net assets were $170,240,129. Chief Counsel Morris Dees was paid $273,132 and the President and CEO, Richard
Cohen, was paid $290,193. Total revenue in 2007 was $44,727,257 and program expenses were $20,804,536. In other words, they raised twice as much they
spent. Fund-raising and administrative expenses were $9 million, leaving $14 million to be put into the center's vast assets. 
According to a March of 2007 article in Harpers Magazine by Ken Silverstein, the SPLC combats mostly impotent groups like the Nazis and the Klu Klux
Klan; raising obscene amounts of money by hyping fears about their power and influence. Hence, they have become the nation's richest "civil rights"
organization. In 1978, when their treasury held less than $10 million, Mr. Dees vowed they would stop fund-raising and live off interest when they hit
$55 million. A decade later, the goal was upped to $100 million. The group's newsletter promised that this amount would allow it "to cease the
costly and often unreliable task of fund raising."
SPLC is a tax-exempt, charitable organization incorporated in 1971 under tax code 501(c)(3). In the fiscal year ending in 2009, the group's assets
totaled at $189.7 million dollars. Approximately 68% of our total expenses were spent on program services in 2009. 
SPLC the hypocrites. If you're a Christian of traditional beliefs shame on you. Muslim? its ok to have "extreme" views.
“For a second year in a row, the radical right in America expanded explosively in 2010, driven by resentment over the changing racial
demographics of the country, frustration over the government’s handling of the economy, and the mainstreaming of conspiracy theories and other
demonizing propaganda aimed at various minorities,” SPLC claims. On a list of over 1,000 organizations labeled “hate groups,” 17 “anti-gay”
are singled out, the majority of which being Christian and conservative in nature.
However! Double standard alert!!
“To call the Family Research Council a hate group is unacceptable,” Schwartz said. “It’s inaccurate. It’s using the phrase in an
Among the Muslim groups that escaped being named in the report as an anti-gay hate group, like the conservative FRC, is the Islamic Circle of North
America (ICNA), which is outspoken in its condemnation of homosexual lifestyles. Its website calls same-sex relationships a “deviation” from
Allah’s laws and refers to homosexuality as “ignorance.”
“There are divine laws for faith groups to adhere to and accept,” said Naeem Baig, ICNA vice president.
Baig said religious groups of any faith should not be labeled hate groups for their beliefs unless they actually promote violence or hate.
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has also been unequivocal in its moral rejection of homosexuality, yet it too was not to be found in
SPLC’s report. In a 2006 Religion News Service story, Muzammil Siddiqi, a former president of ISNA who later served on its board of directors, said,
“Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption . . . No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a
thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.”
The Fiqh Council, an ISNA affiliate, advocates a similar viewpoint. Dr. Jamal Badawi, who serves on its executive council, called gay lifestyles
“strange and contradictory” and lamented the West’s acceptance of homosexuality as a “setback and decline” in the world’s moral standards,
according to an article on islamawareness.net.
Southern Poverty Law Center has no credibility whatsoever and is purely driven by a specific agenda!!
They are naming anyone who doesn’t agree with them as a hate group,” Lafferty said. “This is how they deal with their enemies – they scare

no middle ground any more. Pretty Sad!!
