@PN. I wrote here on this blog site a while back regarding the SPLC and how they worked with Law Enforcement, locally and on a National Level with the FBI and Homeland Security.
Now get this!!! I literally got BLASTED by some Right Wingers and a prominent 'Center-Right- contributer essentially saying I had it backwards and the SPLC WAS IN THE BUSINESS OF HATE!! I am not making this up.
Check out my blogs on my profile page. The proof is there. So, my friend, get ready for some right wingers with some pointed verbs coming your way.
Great Blog by the way!
@Sebe. The OVERWHELMING NUMBERS ALONE of documented Right Wing CONSERVATIVE HATE GROUPS swamped the pittance of left wing hate groups that was historically swamped and lost in the whirlpool of rogue waves and bottom dives from relentless (and justified) pursuit and jailing of its participants in the '60's and '70's by J. Edgar Hoover. Yes there are small cells of Left Hate Groups, but the overall INTERNAL threat to America and our Constitution comes from many well armed self marginalized white boys and girls. Almost too numerous to count, thus demanding the SPLC's paramount purpose in exposing them to the FBI and Homeland Security
Remember Timothy McVeigh? Home grown terrorist.
The Social and War Upheaval in the 60's and 70's was a noble cause that sometimes lacked guidance in accomplishing its aims. There were mistakes. On the other hand the formation of literally thousands of Right Wing Hate Groups is a threat to all law abiding citizens. Not just the Government War Mongers of needless Wars and the Military Industrial Complex.
I would submit that your monetary soul is tied to that 60-70 war like era.
I refused to participate in it. What did you do?
That is such a bad list for GA to be on.
This world of ours... must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Ike knew a thing or two about hate.
I will say this Shan: That the growing disparity between the haves and the have nots is widening. A powder keg is in the making.
