VIDEO: Terrorist Floyd Corkins Tells FBI He Used SPLC ‘Hate’ List to Find Target

Posted on | April 25, 2013 | 23 Comments

Steven Ertelt at LifeNews reports:

In a chilling new Federal Bureau of Investigation interrogation video just released, Floyd Lee Corkins, who shot up the offices of the Family Research Council, on August 15, 2012, says that he picked his target from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) website.
Corkins pled guilty to three charges, including committing an act of domestic terrorism while armed – the first such charge in Washington, D.C.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center is the real hate group.

    Can we charge the SPLC under RICO here?

    The family of the deceased should use the same type of civil suit against Morris Dees that he used against the Klan.

    Y’all are misspelling $PLC.

    H8rs gotta hate, and $PLC is full of H8. It is, in fact, their stock in trade.

    […] How you noticed how false teachers like hateful, libelous, perverted, radical pro-abortionist, race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie reflexively refer to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” list when they don’t have facts to demonize groups that actually believe the Bible?  Well, their deceptions can be very dangerous.  See VIDEO: Terrorist Floyd Corkins Tells FBI He Used SPLC ‘Hate’ List to Find Target.

    Maybe SPLC should list itself as one of those institutions inspiring hate?

    No one died, fortunately, though not for want of trying on Corkins’ part.

    So, how does one commit “an act of domestic terrorism” without being armed? Run into a Sbarro’s and yell “boom!”?

    Just seems redundant, ‘s all I’m sayin’.

    Have you spent much time in court?
    Many laws need to be VERY SPECIFIC and full of fine details.

    You’ve got the SPLC, you’ve got the President of the US telling his supporters to “Vote for revenge” (you know, revenge against free financial and housing subsidies for life, free although wasted public education, free medical through city and county health services, yeah, they’re gonna show us), You’ve got HuffPuffers, celebrities and even lawmakers calling for violence against their opponents… face it, the “liberal” side of the political spectrum is only liberal in its dispensation of genuine hate, not the imagined hate it “fights” against.

    The bigoted gay heterophobe Floyd Corkins allowed hate to ruin his life. Funny how the political movement that demands we not judge different life styles hates those who would disagree with their world view.

    That would require the obama justice department to cannibalize their own.

    Well like someone once said, if calling FRC a hate group led to one single isolated attempted attack, surely all of the hateful things they’ve said–which are not true–are related to attacks against gay people?

    SPLC huh? Well, obviously the “P” must stand for Palin. The “L” must be for LaPeirre. I’m coming up blank on the other two letters. Would somebody please enlighten me about this racist right wing teabagger terrorist group?

    With Idi Amin as a role model, I’m sure that’s somewhere on the to-do list with this Administration.

    Have you direct links to “hateful things [FRC] said” or are you just parroting the leftists like every other half-wit?

    Standing up for traditional marriage is “hateful?” It was Obama’s official position for years – until he no longer had to run. Was he a “hater” too? Was he equally responsible for “attacks against gay people?”

    Two-faced moron.

    So, the FRC attacked gay people? Did they go to a gay person’s office and kill them? Did they provide a map where gay people lived and worked for easy access to murder gay people? I know you get paid by Soros to slog your trash on conservative websites, but you’re going to have to work on your arguments. maybe you should ask the people who do the thinking for you to come up with better talking points.
