Accuracy in Media

Why is the FBI missing the extremists in our midst? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the organization consulted by the Department of Justice for information on extremists is in bed with them.

Evelyn Schlatter, the deputy director of research of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), was listed as a participant in the recent Left Forum conference, which featured an assortment of communists, 9/11 truthers, pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel activists, and other extremists. Schlatter was described as an expert on “right-wing political and social movements, gender, and sexuality.”

Schlatter should have some knowledge of left-wing political movements, especially since she rubbed elbows with some of their followers at the conference. Indeed, these far-left extremists are allies of the SPLC, which works directly with and advises the Obama Justice Department on hate groups and extremism. The FBI is under the jurisdiction of the Justice Department.

In the case of the Orlando terrorist attack on a gay nightclub, the SPLC has been careful to avoid discussing in any significant detail the killer’s devotion to radical Islam, including his regular attendance at a Mosque and the presence of a Koran, a Palestinian book, and other Islamic paraphernalia in his apartment. Instead, an article on the SPLC website described Omar Mateen as simply “a 29-year-old American citizen who worked as a security guard and had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State before the attack.” The article focused on the reactions of a few members of the “racist right” to homosexuals being targeted in the attack.

Fred Fleitz, senior vice president for policy and programs with the Center for Security Policy, says his organization was named by the SPLC as a “hate group” precisely because of “our work highlighting the threat from radical Islam.”

Denouncing the SPLC’s use of despicable tactics against leading conservatives, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (ret.) has said that the SPLC is “probably next to the Muslim Brotherhood the most evil group in America.” The Muslim Brotherhood functions as a front for terrorist organizations but is treated as a friendly Muslim group by the Obama administration. Indeed, national security reporter Bill Gertz reports that Obama has issued Presidential Study Directive-11, backing the Muslim Brotherhood.

As if the Justice Department needed more evidence of how the SPLC can’t be trusted to report on “extremists” in America, the SPLC’s Schlatter was joined at the Left Forum by pro-terrorist lawyer Lynne Stewart. Stewart participated in a panel titled, “Free Our Political Prisoners,” a reference to terrorists in prison. Stewart knows something about terrorism. As noted by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, she was convicted for helping the Blind Sheikh run his Egyptian terrorist organization, al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya or “the Islamic Group,” from his high-security U.S. prison confinement. However, Stewart was freed from prison by the Obama administration on medical grounds.

The chairman of the panel featuring Stewart was Jennifer Meeropol of the Rosenberg Fund for Children, an organization named for the Soviet spies Ethel and Julius Rosenberg.

An advertisement in the conference program guide proclaimed, “Time to Take Down the Wall between the Left and the Truth Movement. No Justice or Peace without Truth.” This was an attempt to get more left-wingers on board the 9/11 truth movement, which claims U.S. government agents—not Muslim terrorists—were behind the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. A panel associated with this view argued that Islamophobia was responsible for blaming Muslims for the terrorist attacks.

Among the organizations joining with the Southern Poverty Law Center at the recent Left Forum in New York City were:

  • The Freedom Road Socialist Organization, a self-declared Marxist-Leninist organization raided by the FBI in 2010 because of its links to the terrorist FARC in Colombia and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a Palestinian Marxist-Leninist terrorist group.
  • The Progressive Labor Party, whose motto is “Fight For Communism.”
  • Red Star Publishers, described as “a small publishing company dedicated to making Marxist-Leninist literature available in print format at low cost.” It is associated with the Party of Communists USA and US Friends of The Soviet People.
  • Revolution Books, “A bookstore for a radically different world,” is associated with the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, headed by former SDS leader Bob Avakian.
  • Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist organization in the United States, and principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.

The opening plenary was titled, “Capitalism and Militarism—at Humanity’s Peril,” and was predictably covered by Russia Today (RT) in a story headlined, “‘Democracy in the US is a fraud’ Left Forum debates next steps for Sanders movement.” Speakers were:

  • Medea Benjamin, an anti-Israel activist who co-founded Code Pink.
  • Tariq Ali, a British Pakistani associated with the Marxist Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Policy Studies, who co-wrote the screenplay for the Oliver Stone film glorifying Venezuelan Marxist ruler Hugo Chavez.
  • Chris Hedges, a former New York Times reporter who holds the distinction of being so far left that he was booed and greeted with chants of “USA” when he delivered a graduation speech on “War and Empire” at Rockford College in Illinois.

Titles of panels at the conference included:

  • The Proletariat is Still the Revolutionary Class.
  • Tear Down the Prison Walls!
  • Intifada in America: The History of the Palestine Left in the United States.
  • A Dialogue on Israel and Palestine With Tariq Ali and Norman Finkelstein.
  • Animal Liberation Strategies in the Face of Indifference and Repression.
  • Bully Nation: How Militaristic Capitalism Creates A Bullying Society.
  • One Year of the SYRIZA-ANEL Government in Greece: The Perspective of the Greek Communist Party (KKE).
  • Silencing Dissent: False Accusations of Anti-Semitism Against Palestine Solidarity.
  • Cuba—Political and Economic Reforms for 21st Century Socialism.
  • Prison Abolition: A Movement Towards New Directions.
  • Deconstructing Gender Identity Under Male Supremacy.
  • Some Reflections on the Russian Revolution.
  • A Call for Leninist Unity.
  • Queer Immigrant Organizing for Liberation.

Fleitz notes that the SPLC has become “a far left group with one purpose: manufacturing material to slander conservatives for use by the news media and on the Internet.” This is indeed why The Washington Post and other news organizations use the group in the first place. But the media carefully avoid any discussion of the extremists in bed with the SPLC, proving the essential dishonesty of what passes for coverage of extremism in American society.

Until this approach changes, on the part of the government and the press, Islamists will continue to escape scrutiny and kill Americans.

    THE SPLC is a discredited anti-Christian hate group that has incited violence, such as in the case of DC shooter Floyd Corkins.

    Thanks for the information.

  • Steven Barrett

    Okay, what’s the purpose of this round up the usual suspects piece against the Southern Poverty Law Center? The fact that the SPLC and the ACLU and other legal organizations that have done more to expose the old tactics of fear and intimidation in order to keep the South’s poor continually poor and embittered against inself by ginning up bogeyman stories to add to a pile of more of the same bullshit that’s already been created since the Fall of Dixie and Slavery 150 years ago–I guess this is all that’s left. But what will it lead to? Any proof of some ever so sordid conspiracy much like the idiocy Donald Trump is trying to use against the President by practically accusing him of treason in the wake of Obama’s exposure of his crassness in the wake of the Orlando Massacre?
    Imagine the outcry from the right if Trump or any Republican were to accuse the Democrats and sensible gun owners willing to publicly draw the line against sales of military assault rifles as part evidence of their “ungodly nature” and plans because they opposed the paltry 30 seconds of “we’ll pray for you” but forget about anything else, cheap sentiment offered by politicians moonlighting for the NRA.
    Let’s face it, the gun lobby is in business to help its clients, major gun manufacturers, sellers, e/a make money, and lots of it. They’ll use fear and tons of fear to manipulate an already substantially captive market into buying even more of their goods. If our pharmaceutical, auto, home and computer industries were nearly as cleverly successful, we wouldn’t even need a Plan D for seniors for safe medicine would be reasonably priced, cars and homes would be a lot more affordable, not to mention computers, with the best brands perhaps all selling top of the line lap and desk tops for under a c-note. Ahh well, death seems to have a much higher premium value, even with the “oh, you have our empathy, shared sorrow and prayers, but that’s it” crowd. This is a bunch that has taken the “we live by faith (aka prayers alone)” too damned seriously. In fact, I wonder who’s job they’re really doing, God’s or satan’s.
    Cliff, being a good Catholic, knows better than to smear organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, which by the way, has long put its physical as well as legal necks on the line through their valiant stand against the Klan; hardly a supporter of Catholicism or the rights of Catholics to enjoy their full 1st Amendment Rights … which were put in the Bill of Rights ahead of the Second. Wonder why?

    The “purpose” is TRUTH about the subversive positions of the SPLC and ACLU. I AM CATHOLIC and DESPISE the commie mantra of fraud pope francis. Wasn’t there a “talking” jackass named Francis? The NRA and GOA exist because educated CONSTITUTIONALISTS like myself are LIFE MEMBERS. We belong to prevent people of your persuasion from destroying the very foundation of this country, that members of my family have fought and died for since the antebellum.

  • armydadtexas

    Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that someone in the chain of command upper echelon, directed subordinates to Scrub the names of all know ISLAMIC TERRORISTS from the data base. Perhaps that might have some small part to it. I would suggest all the way up the chain in the D.O.J and Administration. Just a thought

  • Ted

    This is the Age of Extremism. Evangelicals … Communists … The “One-Percenters” … the Tea Party … La Raza … anti-abortionists … the Ku Klux Klan and militia groups … PETA … FOX News … MSNBC … AIM … etc. You name it … and he, she, or it are extremist.

    It began back in the ’90s … in extremis … with Newt Gingrich and his gang-like “Politics of Personal Destruction” … and it has now permeated everything and affected everybody. it’s become ingrained in the culture at every level.

    Chalk it all up to the ******* politicians and their stupid, robotic, and lemming-like acolytes.

    Absolutely right, every chance I get, I ask AMERICANS to write SPLC and demand to be placed on their HONOR ROLL.

  • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

    So you believe those who stand up for a democratic (very small d) Republic under the rule of true Constitutional Law with a free market capitalist economy in a society influenced by Judeo-Christian morality are extremists? Why?

  • Steven Barrett

    Lincoln wouldn’t recognize this thing called the GOP as it exists nowadays. BTW, what “CATHOLIC” church do you belong to?

  • Steven Barrett

    No, but I can see that the way you structured your question that you intended to not even give the slightest suggestion that anybody could disagree with you in the slightest degree. I believe in capitalism, and Constitutional Law, but you leave yourself wide open to questioning as to what do you consider “‘true Constitutional Law.” We are not and never have been a completely free market nation. Never. Read over our history from the very beginning.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Oh dear God. Let’s look at Cliff’s list of folks he’s labelled as “extremists”. Communists, Check. 9/11 truthers. Check. Pro-Palestians and anti-Israeli’s, and by these he means non-Muslims. Check. What do these folks all have in common? None of them have killed anyone. Now let’s look at the right wing extremists. Timothy McVeigh. Dylan Roof. Etc. Etc. When you leave out such a basic premise, your entire article becomes laughable.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    If by “discredited” you mean that right wing nutjobs hate them…sure.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Perhaps that’s the most ridiculous assertion I’ve seen in weeks. Just a thought.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    I love how you try to re-write history to support your racism. Remember the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960’s? Remember how all the racist southern Democrats switched parties to become Republicans? Anything? Ringing a bell?

    Lincoln would take one look at today’s Republican Party and register as a Democrat within five minutes.

  • Jack Parsons

    The SPLC’s ramblings are often contradictory. First the “radical right” was supposedly exploding because Obama was half-black, for example, but now it is on the decline in part because Obama, who is still half black, was reelected. “And while the number of groups has diminished, they are still at historically high levels, far higher even than the very high number that was seen at the peak of the militia movement in the 1990s,” the group claimed.
    Meanwhile, the SPLC itself has become increasingly discredited, Orwellian, and detached from reality as it seeks to label everyone to the right of Obama an “antigovernment extremist” or even a “hate” group. Consider that, according to the extreme leftist outfit, opposition to redefining marriage is now a hallmark of what it calls the “radical right.” As recently as three years ago, however, Obama was still against using government in an attempt to redefine the institution. Was Obama secretly a member of the “radical right” until recently? The SPLC did not say.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    I don’t understand your argument in the first paragraph. Everything they say there is documented truth.

    As far as the rest of it, I’d say that it’s not nearly that cut and dried. The SPLC labels anti-gay marriage people as hate groups if they are actively organized to spread disinformation against gay people. Is that fair? I don’t know. It depends on how you look at it. From a liberal point of view, it’s perfectly fair. Telling people they can’t have the same rights as you seems like hate to me.

  • Steven Barrett

    Would’ve been an excellent move because of all the Copperheads having heart attacks and strokes. War would’ve been over faster too esp. if a moment like this happened during MacClellan’s “March on Richmond.”

    I understand Sandwich. Reality is tough to swallow now isn’t it. But facts are facts. The orders came from the upper echelon. You may not like the idea of your Alynski-ite; O-blah blah and his henchmen acting like Islamo-Fascist sympathizers, but that is exactly what they have done. They have betrayed America. They do have the blood of Americans on their hands. They ordered the data base be scrubbed of the names of ISLAMO-FASCIST TERRORISTS. This if FACT

  • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

    Steven, you read too much into the question. However, I’m glad you believe in capitalism and Constitutional Law.

    By true Constitutional Law I’m speaking to the problem that for too long our courts and politicians have used eisegetical rather than exegetical approach to interpreting the Constitution. Thus the concepts of Star Decisis and Case Law have made a mockery of our system of governance. As one legal scholar put it, modern constitutional law has little of nothing to do with the Constitution.

    As for a free market system, I doubt any industrialized and few other systems have ever been truly free. We can read that from the world history books. Until the Lord comes we’ll never have a just and free system. But many do and should work towards the goal.

    Many of those Ted demonized do believe in working for such a system. Yet he equated the communists, La Raza, and the KKK, with AIM, Tea party, and the anti-abortionists. His comment, “You name it … and he, she, or it are extremist,” seems to indicate he believes all but himself are corrupt and extremists and therefore unfit.

    However would it be fair to say that from the structure of your response it’s you who won’t tolerate disagreement or even questions?

  • Jack Parsons

    Agreed. They provide a great service. I reckon that anyone on their “enemies list” is a good guy. Thank you SPLC for the insightful intelligence reports. They save us a lot of time and money.

  • sorleyboy

    The SPLC has designated The League of the South a “hate group” since 2000. We are very proud of that status!

  • Jack Parsons

    According to the SPLC, opposition to Obama has led to both a rise and decline in the “radical right”. That does not follow.
    Historically globalists, whose interests Obama represents, like to advance their agenda slowly, while America sleeps. The fact that the globalists had to bamboozle us so quickly and openly on faux marriage is telling. It lets us know that there is about to be a backlash, with nationalism returning.
    Since marriage has been traditionally defined as a union between a man and a woman, then faux marriage has no standing. How can there be a right to something that doesn’t exist? For faux marriage to be lawful marriage must first be redefined. That has not happened.

  • AndRebecca

    Lincoln wouldn’t recognize the thing called the Democrat Party today and would not like it. He would know it is infiltrated by Leftists. Over fifty members of congress claim to be socialists and communists and the Bern is running for president. The atheistic philosophies of the Left killed more people in six decades of the 20th century than all of the religions in all the religious wars in five thousand years. Abe wouldn’t like knowing they are in control. We’ve had more murders in the U.S. since the 1940s with Leftist thought started being preached in the schools and Christianity started being taken out.

  • AndRebecca

    Have you ever been to the South? It can be a frightening place and very violent. Having said that, everything a white person does is not related to racism, even in the South. The communists in the SPLC picked the South to work in because it is a depressed area and is the closest thing to poverty stricken Russia in having more uneducated people. Commies have had quite a presence in the Appalachian areas as well. American white people in general are repelled by communism and so the Left goes after people of color in this country. If they didn’t they would be out of business.

  • AndRebecca

    Absolutely.

  • Steven Barrett

    Roberto, now how could I still be so grumpy as I was when I first replied after reading your well-thought out response?! A true gentleman you are. Better than I was yesterday. Yes, I’m familiar with Stare Decisis and Case Law … without Precedence we’d all become like miners sent down sans lighted caps.
    Indeed, the study of Constitutional Law is a very structured and formalized, and I was remiss for overlooking that. As a certified paralegal with several years prior working for the Federal Courts in MA during the Busing years of the mid Seventies of all times. Long time’s have passed.
    But it is a very gray, and purposefully gray area so that justice isn’t reached in lurches and sharp jolts. And this works to the benefit of all sides. A similar argument can be said for the way the US Senate is structured as well, regardless of which party is in control. It’s “conservative by nature,” and this was beautifully pointed out by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell last night in his piece about Sen. Chris Murphy’s longshot filibuster to achieve what was once thought impossible, getting four, much less any, votes scheduled on gun control. The Senate isn’t geared up for taking fast action, and ideologues on both sides should keep that in mind. O’Donnell said he was wisely advised if he wanted to see real change made, to stick around for “30 years.” (LOL, with more Mitch McConnells, I’d rather bet on at least waiting 45 to 60 years.) But Harry Reid is a plodder as well as Robert Byrd before him because that’s the nature of working within the realm of creating or shaping Constitutional Law vs. “routine” matters of equity law, which we both know can get “kicked up” the appellate ladder if the case so to speak has enough “strong legal legs,” and what strength do they rely on? I’m in full agreement: Stare Decis and established Case Law, (Precedent.)
    And I’m glad you pointed out that there’s never been a truly capitalistic society or economy, even within our own history. We only need to point to where our early administrations funded the great canal systems and Lincoln’s early massive expansion of the railroads into the west and of course, his support for funding the expansion of public universities through the Morrill Act.
    Problems really began when the owners of publicly held (and handsomely subsidized railroads) and other industries began to look upon their companies and industries as private fiefdoms, forgetting all the benefits they were fortunate to have received from the public. This, I think, is when the same kind of very coldly calculated British version of laissez faire thinking began to take hold and roughly from the time of Lincoln’s death till TR’s ascendancy and attempts to rein in the most avaricious tycoons who felt they shouldn’t have to answer to anybody. The rise of militant organized labor and the hardening of attitudes was inevitable. I’d be on the side of the strikers if I had to work the same hours under the same condition and practically told day in and out by my employing company, I was just a unit, an item on a spread sheet.
    Many of the same issues still remain unsettled, but thank God they’re not having to be “settled” by workers weilding clubs or Pinkertons weilding worse, shotguns. Nowadays both sides are weilding briefs wrapped in fancy hard blue paper.
    Have a great weekend and Fathers’s Day.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    You are insane. 99% of rednecks in the south have never even used the word communism. They aren’t champions of capitalism. They’re racists. And they vote Republican. It’s really that simple. You can use all the flowery anti-Communism drivel you wish. Reality is a bitch.

    In this country? Maybe a few. How many have racists killed? How many have religious fundamentalists killed? How many have bigots killed. THOSE are the extremists.

  • AndRebecca

    Communists have killed in this country. They’ve been involved in all sorts of murders, even of presidents. They’ve killed people in union disturbances and in the 1960s they were involved in crime and robbed and murdered. I don’t know of any fundamental Christians killing anybody. Tell me about it. Racists haven’t killed many people in terms of actual numbers. I don’t know about bigots, tell me about it. Having extreme thoughts in the opinion of a communist is not really extreme.

  • Steven Barrett

    Time for some folks to dust off their history books, especially those dealing with Daniel Shay’s Rebellion. They wanted order more than what today’s NRA is shilling for: little more than mega profits for mega-arms manufacturers, including Smith & Wesson which is located just a mile or little more away from the old Springfield (MA) Armory which Shays and his “Regulators” unsuccessfully attempted to take in early 1787. I strongly suggest people to get a hold of Charles and Mary Beard’s “Economic History of America.”
    Time to put away romanticized images of the good old days of our nation’s real founding: those hot days in September 1787 when both the fear of God and Daniel Shays’ lessons performed a real miracle that strongly needs repeating today: it scared the one percenter class of that era to produce a document and national framework for at least most of the people living within its borders to make a living in. Of course, they blew it when they refused to deal with slavery thus leaving it for another generation to cut the chains at the cost of 800 thousand American lives during the War of the Southern Treason which it started on behalf of its SLAVER CLASS.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Thanks for your thoughtful and informative reply. You make some very good points.

    Having worked as a paralegal I’m sure you know that if a mistake in interpretation of the Constitution is allowed to stand, it taints all succeeding decisions unless overturned or Conress acts. A good example is the Dred Scott case.

    I believe that all too many decision have been based on an eisegetical rather than exegetical interpretation of the Constitution. How to get back on track is the issue we face today.

Wow, it’s been some time since I’ve seen a word like “eisegetical” and I thought the Augustinian Friars (at then-Biscayne College in MIami … 70-74) and the lawyers who taught me in my paralegal classes a decade later pried my open with some doozies, but you’ve given me the equal to four cups of strong coffee.
    I am also terribly sorry to hear about the loss of your oldest daughter. You and your family are in my prayers. My kids probably cringe whenever I say it when they head out the door, as I did when I was younger, but there’s not a day gone by when I make sure to remember to not let them get behind the wheel without saying “Safe drivin, love ya,” and they’re pretty good drivers.
    God’s Blessings … S.

  • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

    Thank you. Sometimes certain words are able to convey a great deal of meaning.

    But most of all, the words that’re most important is being able to say, I love you, to your loved ones.

  • Crooked Hillary

    The most-obvious fact about SPLC is that it is an explicitly antiwhite organization, a fact Kincaid completely ignores — yet manages to throw “anti-Israel” in there three times?

  • Crooked Hillary

    Good comeback, libtard. LOL

  • Alantar

    SPLC is pretty messed up, but its primary ideology is to make lots of money. Even the smarter folk on the left are aware that they are con-men and fraudsters, looking to make a buck.

    Don’t give them the prestige of having any ideology beyond greed.

    Do you really not see the irony in your lame response? Really?

    IKE, DIRTY BASTARD
    ( Son of a bitch )
    ELLIS ISLAND TO HELL ON RHINE
    The late President Dwight Eisenhower sat foot on Ellis; and most likely, his accompanying entourage could have been Satan. Of course not, for Ike professed no religious intuition. If true,
    God and Satan were myths. Here was a born liberal. From out of no wheres an alien import became Chief in Command of U.S. military forces within Europe during WW11. The major drift here is that this individual became President of this United States of America. In essence, a well-planned con-job was pulled off on the national inarticulate citizenry through a well press-agent-ed intent to manufacture open lies, under the then Presidential gangster, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Franklin was a born scoundrel. As to his origins, a tool in the palms of the British Crown and the District of Columbia. His global political ties reversed back to the late President Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. This gang, consisting of spiritual ties, were globalists within their natural obligations to look out for a future universal syndicated machine of ruling financial engineers. Evidently, Ike was schooled in post political sycophancy; as Ike’s wants were simple and unassuming, in that lust and an egotistical figure brought out his natural instinct to become one of this world’s human mad-man and monster. In this image of a scoundrel, Roosevelt had found his boy !
    In Berlin, as of 1945, Ike was military General over Western Berlin. General Patton had no use for Eisenhower. Patton watched Ike run Christians, Mormons, Protestants, and Catholic from their homes in allowing commies out of prison to live better. The Red army, consisting of Asiatics and Mongolian stock, were barbarians and uncivilized. Christians in prison were starved, for Ike allowed them any food. Patton hated what he visioned. He kept a diary. After three tries Patton was murdered. We must go further to know that the late President Harry Solomon Truman fired MacArthur in 1950. Too, this small un-elected President also took Patton’s command from him.
    Eisenhower had four prisons camps West of the Rhine. Thousands of men, women and children were caged in by bob wire and no shelter. The Rhine River was close by, but Ike denied helping souls to suffer and die. Ike had actually caused the deaths of several million souls. This was one of the lowest sons of bitches that God has ever sent to earth. All though the war, Ike had his private shack job, Faye Summersby. In the White House, Allen Dulles, Secretary of state, relayed that no lady was safe around Ike. Ike came down with dementia and spent his last days playing golf. The ruling elite was glad to know that their chief stooge was dead.
    GOD HELP AMERICA, when slime-buckets enter office. HOGORINA’S opinion !

    Naysayers must now regroup and reinvent their ad hominem attacks. After it was revealed that former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower was not born in Denison, Texas in 1890, nor anywhere else in the United States, a flurry of ‘Eisenhower’ articles appeared on the Internet as an ineffectually feeble, psychological counterbalance to the revelation that Eisenhower (aka David Dwight Eisenhower) was not a natural-born U.S. citizen. It so happens that he real name was “Johann Adolf Eisenhower,” and his lineage was traced to Solka, Bukovina, Austria-Hungary

    The SPLC is truly the cancer in our midst. Even Bill Clinton rejected them during his presidency.

  • Craig

    Please tell how.

  • Craig

    Do you not see the ignorance of your position? Agreeing with liars and supporters of communism is a fairly dumb position for you to take.

  • Craig

    Sorry, Chef, but facts do not mean anything the the blind and ignorant. I think you are either on welfare or an SEIU POS.

  • Craig

    The FBI REPORTED that various islamists were scrubbed. Again, facts mean nothing to a closed-minded hater like you. Keep sucking at he welfare teat..

  • Craig

    Your presumption is faulty and is nothing but a straw argument, like you socialists always leap to when you have no facts . As for STFU, man, I would really like to see you try, POS. You wimp libtards are really tough when anonymous or out of reach.

  • Craig

    Supporting communists, like you do, is unhinged, POS.

  • Craig

    Which is crazy (or tells you a lot about obama), because Bill Clinton got burned several times by the SPLC and he banned them. Now, with Marxist obama, they are back.

  • Craig

    FIRST…there is no Palestine. It is a made-up name the Hesbollah trash use to sway the feeble of mind (like you). The word “Palestinia” was the old Roman word used to designate the land the Hebrews cam from. Dylan Roof WAS A DEMOCRAT and McVeigh was supported by the Clinton FBI. The fool is you for not reading the Congressional Record. Plus, we have muslims killing Americans IN AMERICA.
    Chef, you are a fool and I wonder whom you get to type these ridiculous posts for you. Please crawl back under your cow pie and leave the Humans alone, troglodyte troll.

  • Craig

    “maybe a few” therefore you are a liar by your own admission.

  • Craig

    Still trolling your lies, POS?

  • Craig

    This is how lying communist democrats do it. They list a bunch of names from some leftist place and think they are clever. Most of these are listed in news articles as DEMOCRATS, you listed the “uncaught murderers of Alan Berg” so that is an unknown that you conveniently lump in, another lie from you was Mc Veigh. McVeigh was working with the FBI (because you cannot buy explosive grade Ammonium Nitrate on the open market. The FBI claimed McVeigh bough “fertilizer”. But the fertilizer ammonium nitrate is mixed with chalk and the sack is punctured so the AN is hydrolyzed and cannot be used for an explosive. Also, to prove the LIE of McVeigh, there were no AN prills laying around (ANFO is never 100% conversion), there was no black soot as ANFO always leaves and ANFO follows the inverse square law and could not have “sugared” steel reinforced concrete columns 32 Feet from the truck, 37 feet up and 23 feet back. I am an Army veteran, you are a POS communist supporter. The difference is clear and your vulgar hate attacks represent the small-mind that cashes your welfare checks. Go away, mindless democrat troll.

  • Craig

    Still sucking the communist soup and trying to ATTEMPT to be clever, POS? There is not one original thought you have had here, just mindless typical democrat BS and mindless attacks, never a fact from the anti-American democrat scum, Chef. TROLL!

  • Craig

    But, LIES are not facts. I checked the names and most were mentally ill democrats. Other were government actors, some unknown. The embarrassment is that a POS like you (I assume) votes.

  • Craig

    My gosh, you really are a moron. Try reading some Congressional Reports about the SPLC, moron troll.

  • Craig

    When it gets repeated, it will be to eliminate the communists and socialists from the United States. Your lies about the NRA is solid proof you are nothing but a mindless shill for libtard democrats propaganda. Chef says he has some democrat sh*t sandwiches for you. Troll.

  • Craig

    But you recognize and accept the communists in the democrat party, don’t you, welfare scum?

  • Craig

    Troll

  • Craig

    You are still a POS troll.

  • Craig

    An even bigger POS troll, chef.
    The DEMOCRAT party was founded to support and expand slavery.
    The DEMOCRAT party formed the KKK to murder Republicans freeing the slaves and freed slaves.
    The DEMOCRAT party fought AGAINST the 12th, 13th and 14th Amendments.
    The DEMOCRAT party supported segregation (see Wilson) and did the lynchings in the south.
    The DEMOCRAT party fought AGAINST the Civil Rights bills and had KKK members, Like Byrd, in the House and Senate.
    The DEMOCRAT party whines about McCarthy because he FOUND dozens of active communists (democrats) in the government when the democrats were pushing communism in the colleges and supporting communist spys in the government so Russia would pay them and not launch nuclear weapons (Read democrats are appeasers and cowards).

    Keep sucking for communism, chef.

  • Steven Barrett

    Democrats are famously known as staunch defenders of affirmative action, but we’d never allow the likes of a Dylan Roof to pollute our ranks. Why else do you think David Duke’s a “Republican.” (Sigh, I know it, just know it, in a matter of hours I’ll be getting all sorts of love letters from the alt-right, pretty much most of ’em saying I’m the bastard child of Beezelbub and Jezebel, promoter of all sorts of social maladies from simply learning how to get along to urging civil rights for everybody, even people with strange crazy right wing ideas. No good deed goes unpunished in the very wrong world of righty “thinking.”

    I would like to personally thank Disqus for finally offering the “block” feature. Craig, you replied to 17 of my comments in an hour. That’s stalking, isn’t it? Good bye, Craig. Enjoy your pathetic life.
