    Why the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) Has Become Danger

    Why the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) Has Become Dangerous To The United States!

    by William Gheen
    President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC
    www.alipac.us

    July 30, 2009

    A once revered civil rights group named the Southern Poverty Law Center has now become a threat to the freedoms and security of American citizens due to their repeated attacks on all First Amendment rights and their utter debasement of the political process.

    Due to the severity of the consequences of the SPLC's actions on our nation, their well funded and organized repeated attacks on American freedoms of speech, the press, the right to peaceably assemble, and petition the government for a redress of grievances, let us as Americans of every race and creed unify in our calls for the dissolution and complete political destruction of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    While in the past the SPLC has targeted "hate groups" or groups deemed racist and potentially violent, such as the KKK and Neo Nazi groups, the SPLC has recently used their reputation for righting these groups to go after moderate and mainstream Americans, journalists, and show hosts and anchors in an attempt to suppress free speech.

    The most recent attack from the SPLC on American freedoms has come in the public call for the firing of Lou Dobbs by SPLC President Richard Cohen.

    Cohen asserts that Mr. Lou Dobbs is fueling hatred and inciting people to violence because he discusses issues such as illegal immigration and open borders on his show. The most recent call for Lou Dobbs to be fired was in response to Dobbs making the following statement on his radio show regarding the birth certificate and Constitutional eligibility of President Barrack Obama.

    The SPLC and groups like Moveon(dot)org are scrambling to defend Barrack Obama when his approval numbers are diving with Rasmussen Reports showing Obama's core ratings falling to negative 12 today!

    Lou Dobbs did not take a position on President Obama's Constitutional eligibility to serve as President as a natural born citizens. Lou Dobbs simply said "President Obama needs to "produce a birth certificate".

    American citizens of all walks of life are regularly made to provide a copy of their original birth certificate for jobs, licenses, passports, and other documents. Therefore, it is completely reasonable that President Barrack Hussein Obama should do the same to quell the large cohort of citizens that have serious questions about his eligibility to serve in an arena where there should be no doubts!

    God forbid that the Southern Poverty Law Center's call for free speech and freedom of the press to be destroyed in one fell swoop succeed, but is not even their call for the destruction of these rights offense enough?

    Surely there will be some far left open borders and amnesty enthusiasts, that represent less than twenty percent of the US Population on the political issues of illegal immigration, that will support the SPLC call for the firing of Dobbs because they feel they will benefit from this abridgment of Constitutional rights in America.

    However, Lou Dobbs's political views are more closely aligned with the vast majority of Americans who want America's borders secured and our existing immigration laws enforced. An even larger majority of people will support Dobbs's right to say what he likes and report what he likes as an American citizen and member of the media. Thankfully, many Americans still realize that free speech is a sacrosanct pillar of our nation's political processes and once esteemed place in history.

    Today, SPLC President Richard Cohen sent out another release claiming that Lou Dobbs has some association with James von Brunn, the neo-Nazi accused of killing the Holocaust Memorial Museum guard.

    This is outlandish, ridiculous, and absolutely hurtful to our Republic when you consider the fact that the SPLC and its sister organization the Anti Defamation League (ADL) have both been involved with documents sent out by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the DHS Fusion Center in Missouri that warn police to distrust American citizens based on their political beliefs, favorite books and movies, Presidential candidate choice, or bumper stickers.

    Missouri MIAC Documents Scandal Leads to Advisory on SPLC & ADL
    http://www.alipac.us/article4073.html


    The SPLC and ADL attempts to politicize American police in a way not seen in history since the reign of Stalin or Hitler are threats to our Republic, our nation, and the the freedoms and security of all American citizens. That is why ALIPAC sent out a national advisory warning Americans about these groups earlier this year!

    Now things have taken a new turn with the SPLC asking even their left leaning supporters to come along with them on a direct attack on free speech and the freedom of the press in America in a move that is designed to try and limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    Most of us could understand and tolerate these groups and their spokespersons having different political views than us. I even fully support their free speech and right to engage in unpopular free speech supporting their positions in support for open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.

    But by targeting moderate groups and commentators, smearing their names with false associations with murderous racists, and attempting to simultaneously interfere with Constitutionally protected freedoms of Americans, the SPLC has gone too far and has become a threat to the American rules, principles, ideals and freedoms necessary to allow peaceful political change and diffuse calls for violence from the extremes.

    I personally feel that the actions of the SPLC are increasing the chances of political violence in America as this group is trying to silence free expression of concerns and redress of grievances of tens of millions of Americans. The Americans the SPLC is targeting are not some violent fringe group, they are heartland Americans of every race and political party that believe in the founding principles of the United States!

    Since the SPLC is actively involved in state and Federal legislation to reinforce their anti-American agenda, and since the SPLC has been identified in the effort to turn American police into political police, and since the SPLC is now fully on record calling for the firing of one of America's most respected and revered news show hosts on CNN, let us therefore resolve to seek the political removal of the SPLC from the media and political processes they seek to control.

    We do not advocate anyone lift a finger in anger against them, but to engage in the process that we support and use the freedoms we still have for their intended purpose. The pen and the computer keyboard is mightier than the sword and is the apt response to this threat. The truth and a majority of Americans are on our side and all we need to do is channel that power down on the heads of those responsible for these outrages at the SPLC.

    Let us speak out with one voice against the SPLC and challenge the presence and messages of their spokespeople such as Richard Cohen, Morris Dees, Mark Potok, Heidi Beirich, and others when they are masquerading as a civil rights group before the media and lawmakers.

    Let us reach out to Americans that have been funding the Southern Poverty Law Center that have been led to believe that the groups focus is on fighting radical violent groups. They need to know that their funds are being used to attack American freedoms that are important to us all. It is time for someone to launch an education campaign to counter what the SPLC is trying to do to our nation and to people like Lou Dobbs.

    The SPLC is dead wrong on what they are trying to do and how they are going about it and we cannot sit idle as they move to destroy the last vestiges of freedom in America when so many of our brethren and forebears have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect those freedoms for us all.

    I agree with you! Also, someone needs to sue them (like Lou Dobbs)

    I gave donations to Southern Poverty Law Center for several years on a fairly regular basis. I was working at the time and could afford it and felt that it was a good cause. Something happened, I believe it was about 4 years ago, I noticed a distinct change in their letters and then read that their leadership was in some kind of trouble. I became ill and retired about this time and unfortunately cannot remember what it was, but I do remember that it made me angry and I have not contributed to them since, although I occasionally still receive literature from them. From what I have read here
    it seems that their leadership has done a complete reversal to what they were espousing in the beginning! Or perhaps it was hidden and not as easily discerned. I now wonder if there are people who are contributing to them who are not aware of their position?

    How quickly things can change!

    Many movements throughout the course of history certainly have started out with very good and sound intentions. Civil rights? Sure, years ago many did not have civil or equal rights and a movement called the Civil Right was formed and for good reason. What has happened to this movement? What happened to the end of segregation? Many remember the 1955 incident in Montgomery, Alabama when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white rider. Sure, why should she? She had the same right to sit in that seat as anyone else.

    Segregation is wrong! Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement paved the way to end this. People of all races now enjoy equal rights and segregation was outlawed, or at least this is what we are told to believe. What are we seeing now? Black only radio stations, tv stations, magazines, colleges and many other things. Isn’t this segregation? When one race denies another race equal rights it is a violation of the same Civil Rights that this movement was founded under.

    I know there are many that will not agree with this. Then again, there were many that did not agree with the original motives for the Civil Rights movement. Amazing when one only sees what they want to see.

    It appears that something has seriously changed within the leadership of this organization, The Southern Poverty Law Center has dropped the ball. Somewhere, along the way they forgot what it is that they are fighting for. Now they are attacking other American’s First Amendment rights. It defeats the purpose of what they are all about!

    I have to disagree that segregation is not now complete. I have 5 black grandchildren and 7 black great-grandchildren. They are all well educated, well dressed, and live in what would be considered middle to upper-middle
    class homes. They are all honest, christian, hard-working, and good parents.
    Their friends consist of both blacks and whites and none of them have ever been associated with any organization, or workplace which was all black. None of them have ever been in trouble with the law either.
    They all did well in school and 2 earned athletic scholarships. One in football and the other in basketball. The youngest was offered 4 scholarships in music! And "NO" they did not get their athletic prowess from the black side. My father and his 4 brothers all were outstanding athletes and our heritage is all white on all sides except for one Sioux Indian. They were born and raised most of their lives in Arizona but graduated high school in Kentucky. Their church is an integrated protestant church and they are all active in that church. I live in another state and before I retired was an RN. When showing some of my co-workers pictures of my black grandchildren several of the young, white girls wanted to know how they could go about meeting those guys because they thought they were really handsome. And they are!! There may be instances of intolerance in places but no matter what, you will always find that no matter where you go!

    This is an April article, but it relates to this topic:

    Money Inspires Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric of Lou Dobbs and Talk Radio, Says La Raza Official

    Tuesday, April 21, 2009
    By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer

    (CNSNews.com) – Clarissa Martinez De Castro, director of immigration and national campaigns for the National Council of La Raza, says that money inspires the anti-immigration rhetoric of talk radio hosts and CNN’s Lou Dobbs. She took part in a panel discussion at an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) conference in Washington, D.C. on Monday.

    “People like Lou Dobbs and other similar folks, to go from a certain platform to a very shrill voice and persona that they have got, is they’re making money, folks, right?

    IMO,many should strive to to remain as true to what they think and say as Lou Dobbs seems to.
    He is hated by the open border lobby because he makes a clear distinction between immigrant and{illegal immigrant}.
    Immigrant suggest that the person came to this country thru the legal process mandated by US laws.
    Illegal immigrant suggest the person came to this country by overstaying a visa that had expired and just disappeared into the population,walked, ran crossed the Rio Grande wading, swimming was drove in a vehicle that avoided legal checkpoints.
    What is remarkable to me is the elite continue in the same policy both Republican and Democrat and use these people and ultra liberal whites in this country to maintain their hold on power.
    It was stated recently that the Negro race make up roughly 13% of the population.What part of that % is of voting age registered and positioned to cast a ballot?
    Same question about those from south of the border.
    If we assume that the two races total 25% of the the voting population then I would think that it would follow that the liberal whites put Barack Hussein Obama in office.
    Congratulations are in order.
    As for immigration neither party will nominate a candidate that will stand up and say what is going on with these people over running our country and pushing institutions into bankruptcy.c
    California should be a case study of the cause and effect of illegals on a local ,state and federal level.
    It will take more than words to stop this being pushed upon the taxpayers of our country.

    I am a white man who grew up poor in rural Mississippi and the SPLC never hinted that they might help me. I could be mistaken though. I thought I grew up chopping and picking cotton but the only pictures I see now show only blacks doing it. Who says we have a liberal media?

    I thought there might have been just a few whites, blacks and asians who also did agriculture out in the west, but I could be mistaken. Apparently only "hispanics" are competent enough to do those jobs. After all, that's all you see in pictures and video, so it must have always been true.
