    “Mark Potok, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a watchdog organization which tracks hate groups”

    Couple of facts about the SPLC’s “facts”:

    Mr. Potok is a highly paid public relations agent, ($143,000 donor dollars a year). He has no legal or law enforcement experience. His organization and his livelihood are based on maintaining the highest levels of irrational fear among potential donors.

    There is no legal definition for “hate group”, which is why even the FBI does not track “hate groups”. If there is no legal definition, what exactly is this “law center” tracking? (

    The SPLC is a self-proclaimed “watchdog” group that has no mandate and is subject to no external oversight or review. It hides behind the meaningless smear “hate group” in order to render groups with which it disagrees as “radioactive” in the public arena, thereby stifling all civil discussion and debate.

    If these groups were breaking actual laws they would be prosecuted in actual courts of law, not in SPLC fund-raising propaganda.

    In doing so, the SPLC practices a form of ideological vigilantism: “a member of a volunteer committee organized to suppress and punish crime summarily (as when the processes of law are viewed as inadequate); broadly : a self-appointed doer of justice”.


    Perhaps the most interesting fact about the SPLC is that despite being headquartered in Montgomery, AL, the birthplace of the American civil rights movement, and despite having more than $189 MILLION donor dollars of cash on hand, not ONE of the SPLC’s top ten, highest paid officers is a minority.


    The last “Whites Only” sign in Montgomery hangs in the boardroom of the SPLC.

    Some “experts”.

    Ohhh, the poor anti-tax fanatic (who owned his OWN PLANE) struck out against the U.S. Government. There’s NO WAY to convince me this Joe Stack III guy wasn’t incited to violence by the Right-Wing Spin Machine. (AM Radio Free Conservative and FOX News) A CONSTANT drone of HATE SPEECH against ANYTHING tax, Obama or Liberal.

    Joseph Stack III was a homegrown TERRORIST and the Conservative news media was like a Osama bin Lunatic video calling him to murderous ACTION. This maniac used what’s become the universal sign of terrorism since 9/11… A PLANE CRASH INTO A BUILDING

    I’ve researched the AM Radio Free Conservative/FOX News propaganda machine and it turns out spokespersons like O’Reilly, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, etc… are working for foreign special interests that want to “divide and conquer” the American PEOPLE. I’m sure the Saudi Royals, who are now majority owners of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp/FOX News, were overjoyed at the news and confident of their long range strategic planning.

    NOTE: (did you see the video of Ailes, O’Reilly, Hannity, Beck and rest of the FOX news puppets lining up t0 kiss the right shoulder of the Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talai? It’s even more sickening than all the hand holding/kissing Bush Jr. used to do at the ranch in Crawford TX. George W. Bush always resembled a smitten school girl ever time he was in the presence of Saudi Royals)

    IT’S TIME TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST THESE CONSERVATIVE INSURGENTS before they allow the destruction of the USA. I’m NOT going to stand by and allow the USA to be destroyed by a bunch of Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin GROUPIES, ****you TOO! You right-wing degenerates got a BIG surprise coming….

    I can’t believe the hypocrisy of the Conservative reactionaries, some actually DEFENDING this nutcase Joe (the engineer) Stack. (Rep. Steve King) …If this guy was of Middle-Eastern descent the right-wing would have raised such a stink, pointing fingers at Obama/Biden, Democrats, Liberals for being SOFT ON TERROR!

    The thing that gets me is how these Tax Party cult members are all well-off enough to STILL be in the upper or middle class but they act like they’re being targeted and will LOSE everything to the government. I got NEWS for you Tards, this kind of thing has been going on for a few decades now… ONLY THE GOVERNMENT HAS TARGETED the 40+ MILLION Americans struggling BELOW THE POVERTY LEVEL.

    So QUIT being a bunch of shameless, irresponsible Conservative wacko crybabies and read about your FELLOW AMERICANS who have a REAL REASON to be angry at the government BUT REFUSE TO RESORT TO VIOLENCE and work within the system for CHANGE! That’s what GREAT AMERICANS DO… (ya spoiled, pathetic CPAC wackos)

    “The U.S. government WON’T TAX the RICH but it will SEIZE from the POOR”

    REST of the story goto:

    Wow! A “hero” you say. Just how courageous is it to become a domestic terrorist? For all of you who believe its so heroic why don’t YOU do the same and turn yourselves in to human bombs?

    This idiot was an coward, who was unstable enough to handle the pressure? Did anyone check to see if he actually greatly defrauded the government?

    So what exactly did he accomplish?
    Several days out and no news agencies are even talking about him anymore. Plus…his wife is left without a house and she can’t even cash in his life insurance policy since they dont pay for suicides.

    Thats just selfish stupidity.
