Right, and Ayann Hirsi Ali is an "extremist" and Army bases are "confederate monuments" that must come down. These "hate lists" are nothing more than dog whistles to domestic terrorists like Floyd Lee Corkins.

You're on the wrong side of history, my friend.

Quote:Corkins -- who had chosen the research council as his target after finding it listed as an anti-gay group on the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center -- had planned to stride into the building and open fire on the people inside in an effort to kill as many as possible, he told investigators, according to the court documents.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/06/justice/dc...index.html

The Family Research Council was and is a straight-up hate group. They consistently advocate criminalization of Gay persons. Their leader paid David Duke thousands. They spent thousands lobbying against condemnation of Uganda's Kill the Gays Bill. They are linked with the World Congress of Families/Russia. They consistently demonize Gay persons, use discredited science, and scapegoat LGBT persons.

And there are plenty of people calling the FRC, and everyone linked to it straight up haters. They have justification for doing so. Its unfortunate that some crazy person decided to operate outside the law, but the FRC doesn't get a pass to continue advocating for horrendous discrimination against LGBT persons in response.

Now, please defend the FRC against charges that they are a hate group.

No, no buts.

We need to clear this up. Do you disavow all domestic terrorism, or do you think it's sometimes justified if it's against what you consider a "hate" group or someone you disagree with politically?

Yes, the attack on the FRC was terrorism and should be condemned.

But..

Wow.

And so is the SPLC's freedom of speech to call them out as the haters they are.

By the way, if someone murdered a Klansman, that doesn't give the Klan the license to escape criticism for their advocacy. Its the same principle applies to my condemnation of the attack on the FRC lobby AND the FRC's repugnant advocacy.

I'm not so sure of that. Freedom of speech ends once there's a call to imminent, lawless action. At what point does a "hate list" before a "kill list"?

Nevertheless, so is the filing of defamation lawsuits, which is undoubtedly why the SPLC is offshoring their assets.

Have any suits been filed? You have the right to call the FRC a hate group. Most likely whoever files it will get with a SLAPP lawsuit in response.

The FRC is called a hate group, because they can credibly be called one. Only way the SPLC loses a lawsuit is via 1950's style jury nullification which would be overturned by the courts.

If someone called the Klan a hate group, would you feel that the Klan could sue them if someone shot at a Klansman? By the way, the head of the FRC paid David Duke thousands (as the head of a campaign). I'm choosing my analogies deliberately here.

The SPLC was a scam when it was created and remains one today.

A good way to get blacklisted is to work for it--thoroughly substandard.

People opposed to racism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia have faced blacklisting for centuries in Alabama. Its not anything new.

Blacklisted from what? Is there even a legal industry in Alabama anymore? LOL. Its not like anyone can sue anyone anymore.
