Washington Times' Knight: Overplaying the hate card-- SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER Jumps Shark!
REPOSTING NOW EVERY TIME LIBERAL NEWS MEDIA RUNS THE SAME STORY ABOUT PUBLIC ADVOCATE
In Loudoun County, Va., a local Democrat-owned newspaper, the Loudoun Times-Mirror, ran a banner headline on Wednesday that screamed: "Delgaudio's advocacy group an anti-gay hate group, SPLC claims." (Now the Washington Post follows suit and other news media outlets repeat it all over again).
Eugene Delgaudio is a county supervisor and founder of Public Advocate of the United States, a conservative advocacy group. SPLC is the Southern Poverty Law Center, which began as a small group fighting racism and morphed into a fabulously wealthy bully used by the left to apply the "hate" stamp to people and groups with whom the left disagrees.
The SPLC tracks real hate groups such as skinheads, neo-Nazis and the like, and when it does, it performs a valuable public service as an early-warning system. But recently, SPLC jumped the shark, lumping orthodox Christian outfits like the Family Research Council, Coral Ridge Ministries and others with real hate groups. That's because those Christian organizations resist the cultural blitzkrieg to accept homosexual and transgender behavior as healthy, normal and unchangeable. The groups contend that people tempted in those ways deserve the same chance for repentance and salvation as everyone else.
Liberals used to play the race card at the drop of a hat. The conservative joke was, "How do you know you're winning an argument with liberals? They call you a racist." Now, liberals play the hate card just as often.
