Beware of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a great name.  Any organization that has the words “Southern”, “Poverty”, and “Law” in its name must be trustworthy and truthful, right?  WRONG!

In the case of the SPLC, it is a deceitful, distorting, slandering far left organization.  It takes every individual and organization that we see promoting common sense, truth, logic, and American values and condemns it as hateful, bigoted and phobic.

A recent noted case in point is SPLC’s characterization of John Guandolo who is at the forefront of informing our nation of the real threat of Islam.  Here is some of his background from his website, “Understanding the Threat”:

Mr. Guandolo is a 1989 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who took a commission as an Officer in the United States Marine Corps. Mr. Guandolo served on the Washington Field Office SWAT team for over nine years and as its Team Leader for three of those years. He was a certified Undercover Agent, a Nationally Registered Paramedic, a First Aid Instructor, and served as an FBI “Advanced Capability Medic.” His career included significant overseas travel to include many areas of Africa, Southwest Asia, Europe and elsewhere.

After his FBI career, Mr. Guandolo conducted Strategic Analysis on the Global Islamic Movement for the Department of Defense. Currently, Mr. Guandolo advises governments - U.S. and others - on matters related to National Security, specifically the threat from the Global Islamic Movement. He actively briefs and teaches members of Congress, senior military officials, law enforcement, the intelligence community, key community leaders, and others. Mr. Guandolo served as an adjunct instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College and instructed at the U.S. Army War College.

Here, also is a recent interview with Guandolo by Breitbart.  You compare your understanding of reality with what Guandolo is saying here:

Guandolo:  “Yes, we are at war with Islam”

What does the SPLC make of individuals who dare warn us about the Islamic threat?  Well, of course they slander, lie, demean, and marginalize.  Here is SPLC’s latest slander piece about Mr. Guandolo:


Why does the anti-American SPLC make this claim?  Several reasons:

  1. Guandolo identifies Islamic doctrine that motivates violence by Muslims.
  2. Guandolo connects the obvious relationship between jihad, violence, supremacism, and terror committed by Muslim in the name of Islam with long-standing Islamic doctrine
  3. Guandolo associates and agrees with the likes of Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, ACT for America, Frank Gaffney and Tom Trento.  These are several of the individuals and groups that make the most rational sense about the reality of the threat of Islam that is behind 99% of the terrorism occurring today. 

The SPLC ignores reality and attempts to destroy anyone who is truthful about what we observe happening “in the name of Islam” that matches Islamic doctrine to a “T”.  They call truth tellers “haters.”

Here is what the SPLC is:

    • Pro-Islam, pro-jihad
    • Anti-American
    • Far left
    • Communist-sympathizing
    • Slandering
    • Dissimulating
    • Blind, ignorant, or highly disingenuous
    • A danger to historic American values

Here is a partial list of the individuals and organizations on SPLC’s “hater” list:

    • David Horowitz (Front Page)
    • Frank Gaffney
    • Joseph Farah (World Net Daily)
    • Lt. General Boykin
    • Pamela Geller
    • Robert Spencer
    • Tony Perkins (Family Research Council)
    • ACT for America
    • American Family Association
    • Family Research Council
    • Jewish Defense League
    • National Coalition for Immigration Reform
    • Oathkeepers
    • World Net Daily

Unfortunately, most media, including ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and major newspapers, often quote distortions and slander produced by the SPLC as if they have some special lock on the truth.  Far far from it.  SPLC has a lock only on disinformation and slander.  Their agenda is “see, hear and speak no evil of evil.”  The SPLC is the epicenter of the “hater”, anti-truth, anti-free speech movement.

My take on “Aleppo”, Russian and US Policy…

Ok, I admit upfront that my knowledge and understanding of Aleppo is only marginally beyond the “what is a “leppo” stage.

But I do know several things that convince me that Russia’s actions there are far superior and more effective than those of the United States.  Here is the basis for my observations:

  • US policy in the Middle East has been a failure.  Why? We have made alliances with poorly understood groups with poorly understood motives who are worse than the governments they fought and are fighting.
  • US leaders have failed and continue to fail to understand the depth, influence and significance of Islamic doctrine and culture.  They continue to deny the relationship between the dozens of Islamic terror organization and hundreds of Muslim leaders WITH ISLAM.
  • US leaders fail to admit to the historic and continuing doctrine of mainstream Islam that encourages conquest, jihad, intolerance and supremacism toward non-Muslims and those Muslims who are less “devout” than Muhammad and Islamic texts and leaders demand.
  • Failing these understandings, we have applied half ass’d and failed measures in dealing with Middle East Muslims who we label as “radicals”, “rebels”, and  “freedom fighters” .  We treat them as though they have the same belief system, moral system, sense of respect for life and fairness as most in the West have.  They do not.

Russia, who for  centuries has been closer neighbors with the Muslim hoards of the Middle East than we have been, understands these people better than we do.  They understand what it takes to deal with their leaders.  We consider what Russia is doing in Aleppo, for example, as butchery, heavy-handedness, and atrocity.  Russia more wisely considers their actions to be appropriate, necessary and effective; doing exactly what is required to put a lid on the violence, killing and instability perpetuated by the 1,400 year old Islam-inspired culture.

The US has encouraged and continues to encourage the killing off of leaders and governments that have maintained stability and order in a number of Middle East nations.  We have created a vacuum that enabled the Muslim purists, the devout, to impose conditions much worse than formerly existed.

Russia is drawing the line on that foolishness in Syria. Image result for shrieking little girl They do not want one more nation to fall to instability and chaos.  Syria is their “red line” and they will not let Assad forces fall to even worse, intolerant, unstable Islamic doctrine-led governance.  They realize strength,  force, and in some instances, matching brutality with brutality is required.  Imagine a little girl screaming at her father for beating up the child molester. That is the West.   The West shrieks like a little girl in horror at what Russia and Assad are doing to the “poor” rebels in Syria.  

We need to get over our Pollyannaism and face the reality of the situation there.  Russia has, long ago.
