On the heels of the Salon rush job report on racists in the military, the Southern Poverty Law Center is up to it’s old tricks again. They’ve determined that the military is rife with racists (they found 40 out of how many people serving?) so they’re marching their hate-filled asses to Congress today to tattle according to Stars and Stripes;
“In the wake of several high-profile murders by extremists of the radical right, we urge your committees to investigate the threat posed by racial extremists who may be serving in the military to ensure that our armed forces are not inadvertently training future domestic terrorists,” Morris Dees, SPLC co-founder and chief trial counsel, wrote to the legislators. “Evidence continues to mount that current Pentagon policies are inadequate to prevent racial extremists from joining and serving in the armed forces.”
Added Mark Potok, editor of the Intelligence Report, a magazine produced at the law center: “The Pentagon really has shrugged this off and refused to look at this in any serious way.”
See that quote: “In the wake of several high-profile murders by extremists of the radical right….” I don’t see Potok (the punk asshole SOB) getting exercised about the murderof two soldiers by that Muslim hate group member a few months back – but one octogenarian at the Holocaust Museum and Potok demands that the military purge their ranks. Because they found 40 people on Facebook who CLAIM to be members of the military.
You remember that Southern Poverty Law Center also named the American Legion a “hate group” recently. Of course, their greasy lawyers will come here and deny that they called AL a “hate group”, which may be true in the greasy lawyer sense, but here’s a screen shot of their report of the AL under their column heading “Hate Watch”;
We have to ask ourselves how many of these dildos are really members of the military. S&S quotes one in their article;
One participant under the username “WhitePride85,” who said he is a 24-year-old staff sergeant from Madison, Wis., wrote: “I have been in the Army for over 5 years now … I am a SSGT … I have been in Iraq and Kuwait … I love and will do anything to keep our master race marching. I have been a skinhead forever.”
How many Army Staff Sergeants write their rank using the Air Force form “SSGT”? If he was an Army staff sergeant, he’d write it “SSG” like the several thousand of us who wore that rank in the Army and filled out paperwork everyday using the abbreviation.
To quote that greasy-assed lawyer Mark Potok, who has been to TAH in the recent past to defend his ambulance-chasing organization of greasy lawyers who couldn’t find real jobs in real law firms, by the way, they don’t really know if these people are in the military or not;
“We can’t verify these things,” Potok said, because his group does not have access to military personnel records. “We feel that clearly military investigators could.”
So the military should stop what it’s doing and chase ghosts because the drama queens at SPLC smell money. Even if there are racists in the military (and I don’t doubt that there are, the military is a product of society), how is the military supposed to investigate if they’ve broken no laws? Isn’t that a violation of the soldiers’ civil rights? Maybe the ACLU can instruct their fellow travelers at SPLC about that aspect of their unreasonable demands on the military.
And, it’s all speculation by SPLC and other anti-military groups;
In 2006, the SPLC released a report asserting that “thousands” of active-duty troops like clarkpatrick88 could have hate group affiliations. The law center said that some military officers conceded that recruitment and retention pressures forced them to look the other way when presented with overwhelming evidence of hate group membership.
“Since we issued our 2006 report, the problem may have worsened,” SPLC President Richard Cohen wrote to Gates.
By this spring, a Department of Homeland Security report said law enforcement groups should beware of extremists coming out of military duty or groups trying to recruit susceptible veterans for their combat skills.
Emphasis is mine. Of course the “retracted” DHS report raises it’s vile head again.
This is just another attempt by SPLC to paint all of the troops with a broad, racist brush. I think SPLC should be labeled a hate group. In fact, I’m declaring them a hate group right now. Whatcha gonna do about it, Potok?
