The Other McCain

Why Doesn’t the SPLC Just Go Ahead and Call the Republican Party a ‘Hate Group’?

Posted on | November 30, 2010 | 3 Comments

Both the American Family Association and Concerned Women for America — and four other groups that generally oppose the gay-rights agenda — have now taken notice of the “hate” tag placed on them by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

But why stop there? Why not the entire GOP? Why not the U.S. Marine Corps and the Boy Scouts of America? And as Mark Krikorian says, while we’re at it, how about the Catholic Church and the Southern Baptist Convention? Krikorian adds:

The gay-rights groups . . . have welcomed this appalling attempt at suppressing dissenting opinions; as one of them said, “There are no ‘two sides’ to the issues about gay and lesbian rights.”

Jesse Walker of Reason magazine has observed that the SPLC “would paint a box of Wheaties as an extremist threat if it thought that would help it raise funds.” And Rick Barber has called the SPLC “an extremist wolf in ‘watchdog’ clothing.”

The SPLC has now spent an entire decade warning America against the hate-menace of Robert Stacy McCain. And obviously the recent election results — and 5 million hits — are evidence that the menace is growing.

Today the blogosphere, tomorrow the world!
