O'Reilly Panelist Bashes Southern Poverty Law Center: "They Would Label A Ham And Cheese Sandwich As An Extremist Threat"
Yet another voice speaks out against the practices of the Southern Poverty Law Center. How long will it take to get the word out that the nonsense spread by the SPLC is not what we want in the United States?
Laura Ingraham seems to agree that the Southern Poverty Law Center has some issues with how it assembles it's "Hate List."
Mediaite.com reports "Laura Ingraham tonight looked at a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center claiming that extremist right-wing patriot groups are on the rise and becoming a lot more militant. However, Ingraham pointed out that many of the groups the SPLC has on the list are just groups made up of passionate conservatives, bringing on Bob Dane, a representative from one of those groups, who wasted no time in dismissing the Southern Poverty Law Center as a politically-motivated organization."
Dane, a member of the Federation of American Immigration Reform, told Maddow that the Southern Poverty Law Center "masquerades as a civil rights group and they're really a far-left political attack machine." He quipped, "They would label a ham and cheese sandwich as an extremist threat if it helped juice their fundraising." Dane likened their report to McCarthyism, with Ingraham saying it appears to be a way of "shutting down debate in the United States."
