Dec. 11, 2007 The country's leading anti-immigration organization whose leaders have testified repeatedly before Congress and are frequently quoted in the media has ties to known racists and a long track record of bigotry, according to a new report released today by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

Absolutely! All opposition to this illegal invasion is considered racist -- and all proponents of this illegal invasion are benevolent protectors of the innocent. What a bunch of bull.

The SPLC is an extremist group itself. Anything pertaining to Western Culture is evil according to them.

The Teflon Nativists?

You expect me to take that seriously?

SPLC is an activist organization that promotes amnesty. Articles such as this are the tactics they use. Despicable.

Guess what? I couldn't care less about FAIR. I can think for myself. I don't need FAIR or any other organization to know that I oppose illegal immigration. SPLC can brand FAIR any way they want. Won't change my mind.

What a pathetic argument. "Lookie here! FAIR is a hate group. Therefore, illegal immigration is okie-dokie." What a bunch of nonsensical tripe.

Do you actually think that 80% of Americans give a damn about SPLC's opinion of FAIR? Do you think that SPLC's opinion of FAIR will cause mass shame among all of us who oppose illegal immigration?

"Lookie here. FAIR is hate group. Therefore, I must be a hater as well. Oh, shame on me."

Despicable. Idiotic.

While I do think the border needs to be controlled, it's also pretty clear to me that a lot of the anger about illegal immigration (including much of what is written here) is really pretty thinly disguised racism directed at Mexico and Hispanics in general.
