” In my opinion, SPLC represents state sponsored domestic terrorism.  Hopefully this organization will self implode, possibly crushed by the weight of its own self induced paranoia or the result of finding itself on one of its own lists.”

One of the most reviled organizations to come to the forefront in recent years is the Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center.  Whatever this organization was originally intended to be, it has since morphed into a generator of fabricated “facts” which seldom bear any resemblance to the truth.  But the pay is really good and right now they are on the short list of White House and Homeland Security “favs”.  

The reviving of McCarthyism via the SPLC, is unnerving to many of us of a certain age.  We remember the red-baiting, the commie scares, the malicious maligning of individuals that resulted during the reign of McCarthy.  At that time every one was afraid to speak about anything for fear of reprisal from the McCarthy-ites; a reprisal that could see you jailed, personally ruined, out of work; The effects would last long after McCarthy was dethroned as the #1 Commie hunter in the government. Many people never recovered socially, professionally or emotionally from being targeted and hunted by McCarthy and his henchmen. And Potok like McCarthy had nothing to evidence his accusations other than his own self induced paranoia. Potok seems to want to emulate McCarthy.
