Southern Poverty Law Center Urges Government to Investigate Libertarians.

The SPLC recommends homeland security investigate Alex Jones and Chuck Baldwin while training police officers to recognize their followers and the threats they pose.
The SPLC regularly works with the state and federal establishment to train police officers to identify and oppress its political enemies (1). On March 5, 2013 the SPLC ratcheted up the pressure and sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, warning them to investigate the 'Patriot Movement' as they are planning new terrorist and 'racist' attacks (2,3). In their 2012 report, the SPLC identifies the top 30 leaders of this 'Patriot Movement' as including libertarians Chuck Baldwin and Alex Jones (4).

The SPLC identifies the types of threats posed by this pair and their followers are summarized in their recent report, "Terror from the Right: Plots, Conspiracies and Racist Rampages since Oklahoma City (2013)".(5)

Why are more and more people

Why are more and more people in this internet age, getting upset with us?

Because more and more people are aware, aware of what you do, from the crumbs of information we dig up

Transparency! do not label me a terrorist, because you refuse to listen to all your people

This is an insult used by tyrants

Sorry, sometimes i get so frustrated, i forget im not bleeming american......i gotta stop that, sorry
Its just
I feel a kind of kinship here, i dont care where your from, your sense of right is all that matters to me, your pain is my pain, .......and sometimes i forget we are seperated by seas and borders

As a municipal police officer

As a municipal police officer I have yet to meet any fellow officer that has any respect for this group or would take anything they suggest seriously. Unfortunately they are persistent in their message. Anyone who is familiar with me knows that I have a strong dislike for Alex Jones but investigating his as a threat is over the line.

They don't need to have most

They don't need to have most police officers on their side.

They just need to make it plausible from their noise, so when they pay off one bad cop to get someone, they have an excuse to make it seem normal. Besides, they have the department of homeland security on their side, so this is hardly harmless.

So use every chance you get to marginalize them.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I agree.

I agree.

why do you have a strong

why do you have a strong dislike for Alex? his information not factual?

He is a great speaker but can be inaccurate

I would give him about a 70% accuracy rating. He defames the government for its evils and presents a coherent anti-elitist philosophy which raises the morale of people, giving them the confidence to believe in self-government. Self-generated general happiness is the end of American politics, not wealth accumulation or Platos Republic-- defining individual behavioral constraints so that some complex notion of the overall social good is optimized.

You know this is partly to

You know this is partly to "educate" the sheep

This thing, good
That thing, bad

Ohhhh, fire hot!

They're targeting good people.

They have Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center on their list; he's a great guy who's doing a lot for liberty.

They don't cover socialist extremists

Like the ones in Seattle who house squat. Only so called right and racist groups. Which is an odd match because the black panthers are in that category.

Terrorist identification

Disagree with me? Bam! You're a terrorist

Their trying to seperate you

Their trying to seperate you from the title constituent, dont let them, these fucking idiots

Long time communist front group... SPLC.

Long time communist front group, the SPLC has been anti all that is free America and her constitutional republic, since their founding.

The New American has covered their treacherous activities in many articles! http://www.thenewamerican.com/search?q=SPLC

They are good at what they do! However, their success against liberty is compounded by having in the White House, and replete throughout the current administration and it's agencies, many dedicated bedfellows!

Though constantly performing their obligatory deception surrounding this fact, they are nevertheless, best friends with their erstwhile benefactors, the CFR!

They have, along with numerous organizations similarly lovers of Marxist/Leninist thought, assisted the CFR and it's minions throughout the last century and into the present, in it's tyranny of regime change, empire building, and the rape of people, their wealth and their resources... throughout this sad earth!

They will similarly suffer with them, the same fearful fate reserved for such, if not at the hand of temporal justice, then at last by the hand of eternal justice!

I have no doubt they will, at their end, realize the latter is far worse than the former!

Here's just one of several

Here's just one of several excellent articles on the SPLC from the New American:


Who did they hire from White House?

Now that its obamas second term I would be curious to know if they hired anyone from the White House first term.

Be aware of provocateurs and plants!!

The PJTV post today is a clear example of such. As the video below on the comments shows they can "get nastier"... There will be more provocateurs and more plants within the liberty movement. Racism is antithetical to liberty and free markets; we need to denounce racism at all levels and call people out who are provocateurs and/or have an aggressive social agenda that is against free markets and liberty.

not sure

what you are referring to? many of the people identified by the SPLC are in fact racists and fascists. But they lump anti-government activists in their with those people, smearing them by association.

Fortune Favors the Bold


He refers to clips that have been seen with Mr Terry, at CPAC. Some are for complete segregation. So far, these segregationists seem to be, as in the KKK documentary the other day. They say the main line is not hating anyone. They help all races with support when they are down. They are against interracial marriage.

I think the majority here, do not support that segregation. But, if a man is going to treat is brother as God instructs, then we have to agree with some concepts, while completely distancing ourselves from, blatant, racism.

As a general surgeon, I can assure you that the difference in pigmentation of the skin, is very thin! We are all the same color on the inside and in our hearts. If it were not true, transplantation would not be feasible. Yet, the transplantation of organs can, easily, be done within all races. We should call out all racism and Jew hating people. I must remember that my grandfather's original name was Jewish,(Lemule) before he was adopted! I follow Gods commandments. Love Him above all and love your neighbor as yourself. Hating is not Christian. And, I am not perfect, or all knowledgeable, either. I could be wrong.

that guy was a plant for sure....and a horrible actor at that. lol

The Human Race trumps all others

A Human is a Human and we come in various colors, shapes, and sizes.

Subdividing the Human Race into sub-races IS RACISM.

The SPL Center is not interested in making that point. Like Jesse Jackson and the host of other race whores out there, they profit from keeping the Human Race divided because of color, ethnic background, etc.

Most of the 'racial' divide we see today is anything but racial. It is cultural and those wrapped up in it are Dependent upon Gov't for sustenance or for laws that help create a divide.

What is the difference between the subRaces Regarding

Being Human?
Having Rights?
Need to have Sound Currency by which to be able to specialize their Labor for Profit?
Need to have an education that allows Independence/Self Reliance?
Need for stable and understandable Laws/Taxes?

Do some subRaces of the Human Species have a Biological advantage towards Rights? Or is it more Nurture?

I've worked with and for Caucasoids, Mongoloids, and Negroids that were both Independent of others charity and those who were Dependent. Skin Color, ethnicity, sexuality, etc in my experience have little to do with the ability to live without being on the Gov't Dole or Protection.

Those who are absent of that Dependence, in my experience, live good and peaceful lives.

Hmm. good point. Heres an alternative

racism is a kind of prejudice where your interactions with an individual are governed by your beliefs about the qualities of people of that race.

Do Sub Races share Qualities?

Do they share detriments?

Can you make an accurate prediction about the potential behavior of a person based upon their skin color?

Think one ought to speak with them first to see if they are a dirtbag or friendly Liberty Loving type?

There are differences between People based upon where our ancestors come from yes, but Natural Law ignores such features and indeed ignores collectivism (i.e. Racism) as well.

Focusing on variations that do not matter in Nature, but only in the prejudice minds of your fellow man, is not the path to commonly held/understood Liberty.



I think that's a much better definition than Secular Tea's.

Great comment.

I believe what you say is of critical importance during these times and those yet to come.

You have no idea how nasty

You have no idea how nasty they can get to get what they want. The Zionists and owners of the planet are willing to sacrifice 70% of their own race to get what they want. How many times have they already done this in the past?

Perhaps libertarians should

Perhaps libertarians should begin a private investigation into the folks at the SPLC?
