Cornell law professor blasts Southern Poverty Law Center for stirring hate

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) of Montgomery, Alabama was first established decades ago to combat the Ku Klux Klan and racism in general through its work in helping impoverished blacks fight discrimination. In recent years, however, SPLC has exhibited a tendency to label anyone or any group that disagrees with them as "racist" or a "hate group," says a Cornell Law School professor.

William A. Jacobson, an associate clinical professor at Cornell Law School, stated Wednesday in a piece written for Legal Insurrection that SPLC attempts to cut off debate and quell the free expression of ideas by labeling its political opponents as "hate groups."

And it so happens that conservatives and conservative organizations are the ones SPLC targets on a regular basis.

The SPLC, if it ever had a legitimate purpose, has long outlived that purpose. But like all organizations, rather than declare victory and disband, the SPLC has taken to getting money from shady folks for trashing conservative causes. We should not take seriously anything they say.

I take them very seriously, not because of them, but because the mainstream media and other liberal groups do, and march in lockstep to their edicts. That needs to be watched very closely.

Hope you are well, my friend.
