agreed.

While I was missing lunch, a crime scene played out in the office lobby below me. My coworker and friend Leo wasn’t armed, but he’d played the quick-thinking and inadvertent hero, disarming a young man on a mission to kill me and as many of my colleagues as possible. The gunman had packed his backpack with ammo and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches — later admitting that he’d planned to smear them on our lifeless faces as a political statement. Leo took a bullet in the arm but managed to disarm and hold the attacker until law enforcement arrived.

For years, former employees revealed, local journalists reported and commentators have lamented: the Southern Poverty Law Center is not what it claims to be. Not a pure-hearted, clear-headed legal advocate for the vulnerable, but rather an obscenely wealthy marketing scheme. For years, the left-wing interest group has used its “hate group” list to promote the fiction that violent Neo-Nazis and Christian nonprofits peacefully promoting orthodox beliefs about marriage and sex are indistinguishable. Sometimes, it’s apologized to public figures; it’s smeared and recently paid out millions to settle a threatened defamation lawsuit.

The right wants to normalize hate, that is the legacy of Trump, so things like this are to be expected.

The left has a platform most Americans reject, so they have to run on hate.

Everyone not agreeing with them is instantly labeled a racist Nazi.

The DNC offers name calling, open borders, higher taxes and less freedom.

Hell of a platform.

The SPLC had been suspect for a long time. The founder lived in a giant mansion with an indoor pond. I remember seeing the photos of his home online maybe 15 years ago.

Yet what interests me is that they were always the go-to source for any hate-crime/hate speech related story for the MSM. The NYT, NPR, WAPO, and many others all loved to quote SPLC for filler in any such story. Whatever happened to 'if your mother says she loves you, check it out?' MSM has been an utter fraud for some time now, and I say that as someone who is a liberal.

The left is essentially trying to sell their reverse-racism and reverse-Nazism as being anti-racist and anti-Nazi. Uh no .

Amusing...

Trumplings support a hate spewing demagogue supported by the Klan, neo-Nazis and all manner of racists/bigots, but their knickers are in a knot over a long established organization that's committed to zeroing in on hate groups.

No, they're not living in Bizarro World.

Really. They're NOT.
