The Southern Poverty Law Center has kicked off its Goebbels-like propaganda campaign against me here. I equate the Southern Poverty Law Center coming out for Islamic supremacists with them coming out for nazis. What’s the difference, and why doesn’t the SPLC even have a category for Islamic jihadi groups? Not one. The greatest threat facing our nation, our people, our world, and they are shilling for them.
Now they are linking me with “White Supremacists” (defamation of character). Their piece is awful. This is an obvious ploy to keep politicians away from our September 11 rally against the Ground Zero mega-mosque and any jihad-related issue. Trust me, the folks at Stormfront, whom I’ve monitored for years (they were the very first hate site to hit the web back in 1994), can’t stand Jews or Israel or me, and it would be obvious to ANYONE that IF there are posts there supporting my work, then this is a manifestation of Sun Tzu’s strategy from the Art of War (deliberately planting misinformation from the ‘other side’). White supremacists and neo-Nazis actually hate Jews and Israel, and love Islam and jihad. The idea of neo-Nazis who love Israel and hate Islamic jihad is a figment of the left’s imagination.
Further I have never supported Eugene TerreBlanche, but I have railed against the Boer genocide in South Africa. Is the SLPC advocating for genocide now? Here is everything I wrote on South Africa, and here is a piece I penned from American Thinker, Genocide in South Africa. And it’s same thing with Milosevic. I have never supported him in any way, shape or form. It is the Serbs I stand with as they stand against the jihadists in the Balkans. Here are all my posts on the Balkans. Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself.
Of course, Hamas funder, Muslim Brotherhood front CAIR has sent out an alert with this vile garbage. The irony is that if SPLC were tracking real “hate groups,” CAIR should be on its list. That’s the Orwellian world in which we live.
A little while back, a reader writes that he saw that the Southern Poverty Law Center had FDI/ SIOA in its crosshairs. He thought we should see this brief correspondence he had a year ago with Mark Potok here.
Reader Bob wrote, “I started out by looking on their website for a definition of the term ‘hate group’ fully expecting that Islam would fit any reasonable definition. When I couldn’t find such a definition (still can’t today) I inquired per below.”

I was looking on your site for a definition of the term “hate group” and how it is determined which groups qualify. I was not able to find that. Can you please point me to that or else just respond back with the definition you use?
After back and forth correspondence, Bill got this email from Mark Potok, a SPLC operative:

Thanks for the note. I think one could make similar arguments for lots of religions, and that’s not a road I think we should go down. After all, the Old Testament calls for stoning to death adultresses (but not adulterers), homosexuals and others.
With regard to monitoring radical jihadists, we have made a pragmatic decision to leave that mainly to the major Jewish NGOs, which do a good job and have some real expertise that would likely take us years to develop. Still, we do cover black Muslim extremists and have written about such matters as the connections between radical Muslims and neo-Nazis.

Nice tapdance, Potok.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has a lengthy history of shilling for nihilist causes while labeling its critics “racist”.
From a previous post:
“Hate” as defined by the SPLC doesn’t include the New Black Panthers, La Raza, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farakhan, CAIR, Hizb ut-Tahrir, Jamaat ul Fuqra, or any one of a number of violent, radical, extremist, black, hispanic, and muslim groups operating within the United States.
The SPLC is a criminal enterprise that engages in threats, intimidation, and extortion-based lawsuits to finance their organization. Their activities scream for prosecution under the RICO statute.
