    Not true. I don't believe that the SPLC has anything credible to say what so ever.

    But, I wonder how you would react if someone were to call you racist constantly for no reason.

    Their quarterly intelligence report publication is well-respected in law enforcement circles.

    As far as being labeled a racist, if it walks like a duck, and has feathers, and webbed feet, and quacks like a duck...the odds are good: it's a duck. If a lot of people tell you that you're a racist, I'd go with Ockham's Razor on making a decision...the simplest explanation is usually right. So, if a lot of people see your behavior and conclude that you're a racist, the odds are good that you're a racist.



    For the record, I don't agree with the SPLC every single time, particularly on the issue of immigration. However, having said that, the ADL and SPLC are pretty much the standard when it comes to tracking hate groups.

    Nothing said by The Southern Poverty Law Center is believable since they are a hate group who make outlandish claims on a regular bases.
    Threats against Obama have from the start been highly exaggerated.
    Do you belong to a group that they have investigated? Just wondering.

    the term is overused today, and thus has little meaning anymore. In today's vernacular being called a racist is simply one who disagrees with the current President, or a quick logical fallacy to stifle the argument due to lack of intelligent response.


    For the record, I don't agree with the SPLC every single time, particularly on the issue of immigration. However, having said that, the ADL and SPLC are pretty much the standard when it comes to tracking hate groups.

    Just goes to show you how damaged the system is thanks to liberal progressivism.

    The operative word being, "where". Perhaps the Secret Service would have been a better place to spend that $15 million rather than giving it to the welfare class in Detroit.

    strained?

    I talked with a couple of Secret Service agents outside the White House on Saturday. They didn't seem to be too busy... sorta just standing there.

    In terms of scope, I don't think you can really compare them. I don't think it's inconsistent to get angry about a $700b bailout bill but support an extra $10 or $20m to keep the President safe and counterfeiters on the run.

    How do you figure? Even setting aside left v. right issues, the SPLC is an absolute joke and a shell of its former self. It went from being a groundbreaking civil rights law firm to a rabidly ideological advocacy group that uses its famous name and 501(c)(3) status to accumulate as much money as possible while doing less and less to actually help the people it professes to serve. In many public policy programs, it's used as an example of failed nonprofit governance.
