Nice Deb thinks the Southern Poverty Law Center should be classified as a “hate group,” but I prefer the term “terrorist organization,” because of the political/religious nature of the jihad that SPLC inspired against the Family Research Council. Also, in light of what we know about the Obama administration’s policy, it may be possible to order drone strikes against leaders of the SPLC if they were deemed a terrorist organization. At the very least, maybe we could ship Floyd Corkins, “the SPLC’s Pet Assassin,” down to Guantanamo Bay for a few waterboarding sessions.
If SPLC is a sort of domestic Al-Qaeda, CNN is their Al-Jazeera:
CNN has not only promoted this list of “hate groups” in the past, but after the shooting it re-affirmed the FRC’s place on the list as “hate spewing hate.”
As Paul Bedard of The Washington Examiner reported, the shooter “told the FBI that he wanted to kill anti-gay targets and went to the law center’s website for ideas.”
Only 20 hours after the shooting, CNN cited a 13 year-old FRC pamphlet to support the SPLC’s label of them as a “hate group.” Anchor Zoraida Sambolin passionately insisted: “But it is spewing hate, isn’t it? It is spewing hate. So it’s hate spewing hate.”
Four days after that, anchor Randi Kaye used the SPLC map to report on “hate groups” in the U.S., still treating it as a credible source.
In light of this helpful information, I’ve decided to stop calling CNN “The Third-Place Cable News Network Nobody Watches” and instead start calling them “The Third-Place Cable News Network Nobody (Except Hate-Filled Anti-Christian Terrorist Homosexuals) Watches.”
