These are all people and groups that are listed on the Southern poverty law center site as extremists. Many of those on the list are pastors and all that they have done to get listed is to believe that homosexuality is a sin. ( Anti LGBT )
That’s right, simply by believing their religion they can be listed as extremists and hate groups by the SPLC. Another way to get on it is by wanting to stem the tidal wave of illegal immigration flooding our country (Anti-immigrant)
But it goes farther than just being put on a list on a website.
The SPLC not only trains local, but also Federal law enforcement agencies on hate crimes and how to identify and prosecute extremists. The SPLC also publishes a quarterly intelligence report on extremism that is subscribed to by hundreds of law enforcement agencies nationwide.
“Training Law Enforcement
SPLC representatives communicate regularly with law enforcement agencies about extremist activity and conduct in-person training for officers at the local, state and federal level. Thousands of officers have received training that helps them recognize and deal with hate crimes as well as threats posed by extremists. This training is available free to law enforcement agencies.”
Do you get it now? If you don’t believe what they believe, or dare speak out then you will be put on a list that is submitted to Law enforcement agencies. You will become an extremist simply because they say so and will be on LEO radar as such.
In addition to their extremist reports the SPLC also files lawsuits against those that they define as “Violent hate groups” or individuals to try and shut them down. Below is their latest concern:
“Since 2000, the number of hate groups has increased by 56 percent. This surge has been fueled by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy, an influx of non-white immigrants, and the diminishing white majority, as symbolized by the election of the nation’s first African-American president.
These factors also are feeding a powerful resurgence of the antigovernment “Patriot” movement, which in the 1990s led to a string of domestic terrorist plots, including the Oklahoma City bombing. The number of Patriot groups, including armed militias, skyrocketed following the election of President Obama in 2008 – rising 813 percent, from 149 groups in 2008 to an all-time high of 1,360 in 2012. The number fell to 1,096 in 2013.
This growth in extremism has been aided by mainstream media figures and politicians who have used their platforms to legitimize false propaganda about immigrants and other minorities and spread the kind of paranoid conspiracy theories on which militia groups thrive.”
Mainstream media figures, politicians, patriots, everywhere you look there are extremists! Racists! Haters! Anti LGBT!
Really? They haven’t seen anything yet. Had enough? I know have. Happy Friday.
