Southern Poverty Law Center: The Shame of America

From the PPJ Gazette:

Whatever the Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center may have done in the past that would have merited respect has long since gone the way of most organizations that lose their way when they are suddenly treated as if they actually still retain any value.  This organization that makes its living reviving McCarthyism with all the paranoia and viciousness it can muster is a blight on America.  It is my belief that we need to compile our own list of threats to America, and SPLC would top that list.

Until a few years back, I was a registered Democrat and had been all my adult life.  I left that party along with any other political affiliation due to the corruption in government at the hands of politicians who did and still do violate our Constitution and our rights while they wage phony wars for profit and who will sell us out to the highest corporate bidder.  It was individuals from both major party’s who initiated the wholesale destruction of our rights; it was and is presidents representing both major party’s who encouraged and condoned these things.  I take these assaults on the Constitution and my rights very seriously.  For me, this is very personal and I reserve my Constitutional right to dissent and to voice that dissent without a gaggle of otherwise unemployable and paranoid hacks creating lists of fictional threats.

    Don’t go down that putrid trail, Keefe.

    You are justified in despising the SPLC for their phoniness and blacklisting of legitimate civic groups as, “hate groups” in order to boost their own revenues.

    However, nobody should be asked to hire anyone in order to serve some imagined need for their workforce to racially reflect their local community.

    America needs to reassert our core values by moving forward to a MERIT based society, and where no reference is made to one’s gender or heritage, in recruiting or promotions.

    Write to your Congressman and DEMAND that all references to race and gender be removed from employment records. To be regarded as anything other than, “CITIZEN” is an affront to our Republic.

    The most ironic (read: “hypocritical”) thing about the Southern Poverty Law Center is that NOT ONE of its top ten, highest paid executives is a minority.

    In fact, according to the SPLC’s hometown newspaper, the Montgomery Advertiser, despite being located LITERALLY in the back yard of Dr. Martin Luther King’s home church, the SPLC has NEVER hired a person of color to a highly paid position of power in its entire 40 year history.

    Some “experts”
