One day after another Islamic supremacist plot was thwarted in Texas (with the intention of "killing infidel Americans" with "weapons of mass destruction"), the subversive uber-leftwing fringe group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), has slandered our human rights organization, SIOA, as a "hate group." The haters and deceivers accuse us of what they themselves are guilty of.
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union the SPLC was designated as a Communist front. It was essentially run by a couple, Anne and Carl Braden, who were CPUSA members. They had been identified in sworn testimony, and they made no attempt to deny the allegations. They would be proud that their legacy remains intact - their "heirs"- destroyers and America-haters - continue the work to subvert, destroy America.
A slam from the SPLC is a badge of honor. I wrote of this subversive organization back in December and here; scroll this link. I equate the Southern Poverty Law Center coming out for Islamic supremacists with them coming out for Nazis. What's the difference, and why doesn't the SPLC even have a category for Islamic jihadi groups? Not one. The greatest threat facing our nation, our people, our world, and they are shilling for them and smearing those of us fighting for preservation of our freedom.
The SPLC is getting well paid to do this. According to the SPLC's 990 Form for 2008, the SPLC's Chief Trial Counsel Morris Dees made a generous $348,420 that year. SPLC President and CEO, Richard Cohen, was right behind him, at $344,490. General Counsel Joseph Levin made $189,166. Legal director Rhonda Brownstein brought in $179,806; CFO Teenie Hutchinson, $155,414. Potok pulled in $143,099. Former Chief Operating Officer Jeff Blancett made $159,301 - that's right, the former COO.
Hey "quirky," here's the posse at our Ground Zero Mosque protest:
Stop the Islamization of America was included in the civil rights organization's annual roundup of extremist groups - a rogue's gallery that includes everything from the Ku Klux Klan to white supremacists and Nazis.
Geller's group was one of the most vocal opponents of the proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero.
The group was also behind ads that were placed on city buses urging Muslims to leave "the falsity of Islam."
Geller, who runs a blog called Atlas Shrugs, dismissed the Law Center as an "uber left" group that has "failed to address the greatest threat to our national security."
"My group is a human rights group," she said. "And these people are taken seriously? This is the morally inverted state of the world."
An Islamic organization that has been a frequent target of Geller's barbs said it was not surprised she made the bigot list.
"One need not go beyond the name of this hate group, Stop the Islamization of America, to recognize the validity of the Southern Poverty Law Center's designation," said Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
