"Help them out if you can"?

Good grief, what's next? An urgent appeal to send whatever we can spare to George Soros and Bill Gates?

As a supporter of the SPLC, I think it is appropriate to encourage listeners to check out worthy causes. Putting the brakes on the KKK is no small feat. When you reflect that it takes the SPLC & ACLU to defend our rights under the Constitution, one has to ask, "What the Hell do we need a Justice Department & States Attn. Generals for??" So the best that can be said of our gov't. is that (at least for now) they do not prohibit groups like the above from using our legal system to do the right thing. If it's not your cup of tea, so be it. Keep up the good work Nicole. There's also a humanitarian effort called KIVA that allows us to lend money directly to folks living in the "3rd World Countries" who use the money to start a business to provide income to survive. Damn the Torpedoes, Full Steam Ahead.

michael Tuggle,

Thanks for posting, though the tone of your post is nasty rather than informative. But thanks to the link you provided, I see that I have a little more homework to do on the SPLC... but they still do good work!

Don't be fooled by the SPLC. While it portrays itself as the guardian of the oppressed, the SPLC is an instrument of the globalist cabal that demands an endless supply of cheap, exploitable labor. No matter that economically depressed American blacks and others find it increasingly difficult to compete with Third-World workers willing to work below the going rate. And by continually sounding the white supremacist alarm, the SPLC justifies greater government powers to investigate and prosecute an increasingly beleaguered and intimidated citizenry.

The SPLC is doing the dirty work of an exploitative regime, and making a pile of money in the meantime. That's not good work -- that's selling out working people for a profit.

I asked the SPLC to give me a response to the charges posed by Michael's ''urgent appeal'' link.

elkojohn,

Please share their response with us. I want to see them deny they've making a bundle off their alarmism.

Here's an update from Ken Silverstein on the SPLC:

In five years, the SPLC's treasury had grown by a further $48 million, bringing its total assets to $168 million. That's more than the annual GDP of the Marshall Islands, and has the SPLC rapidly closing in on Tonga's GDP.

Revenues listed for the 2005 filing came to about $44 million, which dwarfed total spending ($29 million). Of that latter amount, nearly $5 million was spent to raise even more money, and over $8 million was spent on salaries, benefits, and other compensation. The next time you get a fund-raising pitch from the SPLC, give generously—but give to a group that will make better use of your money.

I love the debate on this. Michael, I appreciate you coming in here and raising the question, and John, I appreciate you asking the SPLC for more info.

I too look forward to their response. I still think they're doing work that needs to be done... and that no one else is doing.

Yes. Brave, but tragic souls. No one aids them in their quest to impose globalism -- well, other than the Federal Government, Big Media, Big Business, the government schools, the universities, and the entertainment industry.

It's just a rag-tag team of idealists who want multinational corporations to have access to cheap, exploitable labor -- and the paltry millions they've made doing it hardly compensates for the sacrifices they've made.
