SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER’S WAR ON PATRIOTS REVEALED

Groups of American patriots are under attack not only by the federal government and some state governments, but also by some so-called public-interest watchdogs such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, according to a number of pro-American activists such as religious leader and prolific NewsWithViews.com columnist Chuck Baldwin and constitutional attorney Larry Klayman founder of Freedom Watch and Judicial Watch.
On Tuesday, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released a report that claims the number of people dedicated to federal government overthrow is increasing especially after actions taken by the administration of President Barack Obama.
A growing number of Americans believe the federal government plans to confiscate weapons from citizens while Obama and his minions impose socialism.
The groups’ recruiting has been fueled by the stagnant economy, anxieties over illegal aliens being treated better than U.S. citizens, and their ability to push their ideas and conspiracy theories into the mainstream, the report said.
“As in the period before the Oklahoma City bombing, we now are seeing ominous threats from those who believe that the government is poised to take their guns,” wrote Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center and a member of the Department of Homeland Security working group on violent extremism.
“The SPLC’s list of so-called ‘hate groups’ includes the organization Oathkeepers with its membership of military and law enforcement veterans, but the list fails to mention groups such as Occupy Wall Street, whose members have rioted, defecated in public parks, damaged police vehicles and in some cases raped women in their ‘tent cities,’” said former NYPD detective Samuel Dirksen.
