IMMIGRATION ACTIVISTS LAUNCH ATTACK ON SPLC

by Bob Unruh
(United States)

The Southern Poverty Law Center famously smeared Dr. Ben Carson, a former GOP candidate for president and one of the most admired men in America, when it listed him as a “hater.”


And the SPLC was linked to a domestic terrorist when Floyd Corkins admitted he relied on the organization for information about the Family Research Council in Washington, which he attacked with a gun, intending to kill as many people as he could.

Further, lawyers Trent Garmon and Holly Garmon have submitted a complaint to the Alabama State Bar Disciplinary Commission alleging SPLC chief Richard Cohen, who is paid more than $300,000 a year to run the nonprofit organization, repeatedly violated Rule 8.2 of the Rules of Professional Conduct, which states, “A lawyer shall not make a statement that the lawyer knows to be false or with reckless disregard as to its truth or falsity concerning the qualifications or integrity of a judge, adjudicatory officer or public legal officer, or of a candidate for election or appointment to judicial or legal office.”

Now, it looks like it’s about to have more problems.

Officials with the Federation for American Immigration Reform have announced plans to name the SPLC in a complaint being prepared for filing with the Internal Revenue Service.

It seeks to make the organization’s income taxable

FAIR President Dan Stein said his organization is working on a complaint that runs more than 100 pages in length about the SPLC.

The project by FAIR’s affiliate, the Immigration Reform Law Institute, will document the degree to which the SPLC engaged in “illegal political activity” prior to the November election, he said.

“This document with exhibits runs over 100 pages, and spells out in laborious detail how the SPLC operates as a campaign operation for one political party and nothing more. For a huge range of reasons, the SPLC deserves to lose its tax status as a 501(c)(3) operation,” he said.

FAIR issued a statement responding to SPLC’s “repeated mischaracterizations” of the immigration reform advocacy organization.

It described SPLC as “basket of partisan propaganda artists masquerading as public policy advocates.”

“The SPLC continues to state that FAIR has ties to people it has no ties to, is interested in things it’s not interested in, and is working for ends it’s not working toward,” said Stein. “The SPLC’s attacks have been refuted and effectively dismissed by the media, government agencies, and others who continue to rely on FAIR for information and commentary.”

The group cautioned journalists and others about the group.


“Reporters and others who lift verbatim SPLC mischaracterizations aren’t adhering to journalistic standards and expose themselves to ridicule as hacks and biased advocates uninterested in real truth,” said Stein. “The SPLC is deeply invested in promoting mass immigration, bullying political opponents into silence, and is nothing more than a daily smear machine uninterested in the free exchange of ideas. It uses the same ad hominem tactics year in and year out to try to manage political speech in the interests of its own agenda. The SPLC is simply not a credible source of accurate or truthful information.”

This after, earlier in the 2016 presidential campaign, it smeared Carson because of his views on marriage.

“Think about how shameless SPLC really is: retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin and Tony Perkins both now with the Family Research Council are still on the list despite the fact that the group inspired a domestic terrorist and would-be mass murderer to conduct an armed attack on their Family Research Council years ago with the intent of shooting and killing every single employee and leaving a Chick-fil-A sandwich on their corpses. That guy, by the way, now serving time in an attack that resulted in a non-fatal bullet wound to FRC’s black security guard, never made it to the SPLC’s ‘hate’ list, despite getting his marching orders from the group,” Joseph Farah, WND co-founder and CEO, wrote.


Liberty Counsel, which also has been targeted by SPLC, said in a report last fall that by “falsely and recklessly labeling Christian ministries as ‘hate groups,’ the SPLC is directly responsible for the case of a man who intended to commit mass murder targeted against a policy organization in Washington, D.C.”

“On August 15, 2012, Floyd Corkins went to the Family Research Council with a gun and a bag filled with ammunition and Chick-fil-A sandwiches. His stated purpose was to kill as many employees of the Family Research Council as possible and then to smear Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces (because the founder of the food chain said he believed in marriage as a man and a woman). Fortunately, Mr. Corkins was stopped by the security guard, who was shot in the process. Corkins is now serving time in prison. Mr. Corkins admitted to the court that he learned of the Family Research Council by reading the SPLC’s hate map.”

Corkins was sentenced to prison for domestic terrorism after admitting on video he accessed SPLC’s recommendations to pick a target for his attack. SPLC identified FRC as a hate group because it holds to a biblical definition of homosexuality.
