The SPLC is a joke. But it’s not funny. It’s scary and sad moreso – the ability they have to manipulate perceptions and demonize liberty-lovers like Thomas J. DiLorenzo who pens this gem for LewRockwell.com:
Particularly disturbing is the SPLC’s repeated use of the word ‘extremism’, which in contemporary American lexicon has come to denote any belief which challenges the status-quo and/or government propagated belief systems (read: statist propaganda).
I’ll just repost the header of quotes from the article, the first of which had me LOL’ing hardcore.
“I have great respect for the Southern Poverty Law Center.”
~ Congressman Lacy Clay (D-Banksters)
“Instead of monitoring “hate” and “extremism,” they [the SPLC] are concerned with tarring patriotic Americans who oppose their left-wing agenda as haters and extremists.”
~ Former Congressman Tom Tancredo
“When you get right down to it, all the SPLC does is call people names. It’s specialized in a highly developed and ritualized form of defamation . . .
What they do is a kind of bullying and stalking . . . . Americans really need to ask themselves if they are willing to tolerate this kind of operation in a free society.
~ Laird Wilcox, author of The Watchdogs: A Close Look at Anti-Racist “Watchdog” Groups
D-Banksters, fucking classic.

We also really liked Thomas J. DiLorenzo (professor of economics at Loyola University’s Sellinger School of Business) at Ron Paul’s hearing on the Federal Reserve.
