Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

-Ephesians 5:11-13

Morris Dees is Using SPLC to Achieve His Goal: To Become “Independently Rich”

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, September 6, 2017:

The new center being build by the SPLC

From the very beginning, Dees wanted to get rich and it didn’t matter to him how. As his business partner Millard Fuller recalled: “Morris and I … shared the overriding purpose of making a pile of money. We were not particular about how we did it, we just wanted to be independently rich.”

They started by direct marketing the sale of cookbooks and related items. But everything changed when they were able to purchase George McGovern’s mailing list of 700,000 names of liberals following his failed campaign for the presidency in 1972. They found that McGovern liberals were outraged over “southern poverty,” and with that outrage, coupled with Dees’ writing skills, they could rake in millions.

The breakthrough for them came in 1984 when Dees

SPLC Sends Millions to Opaque Offshore Tax Havens

News that Morris Dee’s Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) transferred some $5 million offshore in 2014 caught many by surprise. For example, tax expert Amy Sterling Casil, CEO of the nonprofit consulting firm Pacific Human Capital, upon learning of the transactions, said:

I’ve never known a U.S.-based nonprofit dealing in human rights or social services to have any foreign bank accounts.… I am stunned to learn of transfers of millions to offshore bank accounts.

 

It is a huge red flag and would [be] completely unacceptable to any wealthy, responsible, experienced board member who was committed to a charitable mission who I ever worked with.

 

It is unethical for any U.S.-based charity to invest large sums overseas. I know of no legitimate reason for any U.S.-based nonprofit to put money in overseas, unregulated bank accounts.

Apparently Casil has been away. Dees is simply fulfilling his life-long goal to become wealthy, and SPLC is his tool to accomplish it. Dee’s original business partner, Millard Fuller, recalled,

Citing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the National Center for Life and Liberty of the D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM) filed suit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on Tuesday for “trafficking in false or misleading descriptions of the services offered under the ministry’s trademarked name; and for defamation pursuant to Alabama common law arising from the publication and distribution of information that libels the ministry’s reputation and subjects the ministry to disgrace, ridicule, odium, and contempt in the estimation of the public.”

Frank Wright, the CEO of the ministries, explained why it is suing the SPLC:

Julian Bond’s Passing Illustrates the Illegitimacy of the Mainstream Media

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, August 19, 2015:  

Except for the Internet, Julian Bond’s passing would be celebrated by the mainstream media as a life well-lived, full of accomplishment and good deeds in an evil and declining world. Words like “hero,” “friend,” and “champion” would forever be tied to his name and his life. Eulogies from Al Sharpton would remain unchallenged:

Julian Bond Dead at 75; Radical Background Ignored by Media

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 17, 2015:

Julian Bond

While ignoring deep and decades-long communist sympathies, the mainstream media used the death of Julian Bond on Saturday to glorify a radical revolutionary, calling him a “hero,” “gifted,” “smart,” a “friend” of President Obama, “passionate,” “eloquent,” and a civil rights “champion.”

Al Sharpton was solicited for his comments on Bond:

As one who came out of the immediate generation after him, I grew up admiring and studying the work of Julian Bond.… The country has lost a champion for human rights.

US Army Adds Evangelical Christians to its Extremists List, Thanks to the SPLC

Last month I made light of the fact that my name didn’t appear on the list of extremists published by the Southern Poverty Law Center, but I took comfort that a lot of people whom I know, and some friends, were on the list. This time my task is to expose them for what they really are: a “hate” group whose rants against “extremists” not only include evangelical Christians but attacks on the very foundation of the American republic.

A couple of biographical sketches on the SPLC are helpful in exposing them. From Wiki we find that the SPLC is “noted for its … educational programs that promote tolerance.” From the Legal Dictionary we learn that  the SPLC “tracks hate groups and runs a program to educate Americans about racism, anti-Semitism, and other forms of intolerance.”

From World News Daily we have learned that not only do their “programs” now put evangelical Christians at the top of the list, but that list is now being used by the US Army to indoctrinate its troops. In an Army reserve unit in Pennsylvania an Equal Opportunity training brief entitled “Extremism and Extremist Organizations” included a slide with the title “Religious Extremism.” That slide listed a number of truly evil and dangerous groups including the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida, Hamas and the Nation of Islam. But at the top of the list was “evangelical Christianity.”

When word of this got out (an audience member, himself an evangelical Christian, got angry and demanded a copy of the program), Col. Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, was outraged:

Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn’t be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States. It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization. It also appears that some military entities are using definitions of “hate” and  “extreme” from the lists of anti-Christian political organizations…

The idea of salvation being exclusively through Christ is a key doctrine of the  Christian faith. It is amazing that the trainer felt they had the authority and right to list evangelical Christian, Catholics and orthodox Jews  alongside groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.

Crews then exposed where the Army got its information:

This is absolutely abhorrent to all those who identify themselves as evangelical  Christians in this country. We know other commands have used the  SPLC list in briefing soldiers about hate crimes and hate groups, but this particular briefing is the most egregious in terms of blatantly identifying evangelical Christianity as the number one extremist group in the United  States.

When the SPLC attacks evangelical Christianity, it attacks the foundations of the republic. Wiki again is helpful here. It notes that “its earliest leaders included John Wesley, George Whitfield and Jonathan Edwards,” amazing men who were instrumental during the Great Awakening of the 1730s and 40s and who laid the foundation for the beliefs held by most of the founders of the republic. The best study I’ve seen that explains the impact of evangelical Christianity on the founders is The Light and the Glory by Peter Marshall (son of Peter Marshall, the Senate Chaplain) and David Manuel.

Rather than celebrating the freedom from oppression that evangelicals accomplished at the founding of the republic, the SPLC shows the depths of its depravity by promoting such as “extremism.” What’s especially outrageous is that useful idiots in the US Army have picked up the lie and promoted it as truth to its troops.

Crews has been assured that the briefing in Pennsylvania was “isolated” and won’t be repeated, but I greet that with great skepticism. The SPLC will continue to spread its lies as it has for years. It’s a poison that continues to drip into the bloodstream of the American republic, rotting away its core values and leading its misinformed citizens back into slavery once again.

 

I’m not on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list, again. Dang it.

I always look to see, though. It must mean that I’m not doing enough in the fight for freedom to warrant even a mention.  But some of my close friends are, though, so that counts for something.

The Southern Poverty Law Center monitors alleged hate groups, all on the right side of the political spectrum. Here’s how their report starts out. You’ll get their drift immediately:

Insight Into the LGBT Mindset

Michael Brown: The FRC Shooting and Inflammatory Gay Rhetoric

Day and night, LGBT people are told how much we [Christians] hate and despise them, that Prop 8 in California was actually Prop Hate, that Chick-Fil-A serves “hate chicken” (this from the mayor of Washington, DC).

Is it any surprise, then, that a number of churches were vandalized after the Prop 8 vote in 2008 or that a Chick-Fil-A store had the words “tastes like hate” scrawled on its walls? And given the view that failure to affirm homosexuality is an act of hate, is it any surprise that in April of this year, a church in Seattle had its windows smashed by a group called Angry Queers?

The hard-core militants in the gay movement are those whom Brown is calling out and his message is compelling: They hate Christians and the message of Christ. When the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) calls the Family Research Council, the target of the gay shooter last week, a “hate group”, it’s time to put some serious distance between them. Or so one would think. But no, one of the leading lights of LGBT, Wayne Besen, climbed on board with SPLC:

Wayne Besen, founding executive director of Truth Wins Out, was one of the signers of the joint LGBT statement condemning the FRC shooting on August 15th. One day later, he assured his readers that the FRC “loathes LGBT people with a special passion” and that the SPLC was “100% correct” in labeling the FRC a hate group…

Michael Brown, the author of this column at Townhall.com attended a gay pride event last year along with other Christians. Besen’s response is chilling:

Last year, at the gay pride event in Charlotte, about 400 Christians (including me) wore “God Has a Better Way” tee-shirts and handed out 2,500 bottles of water inscribed with “Jesus Loves You.” (For us, “the Jesus Revolution” means putting down swords of violence and hatred and picking up crosses of truth and love.)

In response, Besen wrote an article entitled, “Michael Brown Is an Anti-Gay Monster,” claiming that my “game is to try inciting followers to possible violence against LGBT people.” He stated, “I do strongly believe to my core that Brown’s ultimate goal is to create the conditions for a nasty physical clash,” claiming that, “The madman fully understands that he only has to create a hostile climate to inflame the most unstable of his thugs and they will eventually provoke the type of confrontation that this pathological monster deeply desires.”

What effect do such vitriolic, ugly, and hate-filled words have on an unstable gay reader? And how would that person recognize that there is not a grain of truth in Besen’s inflammatory words?

This is an insight to some of the gay mindset, and it isn’t pretty.

The First Amendment Protects Chick-fil-A, Too

Ed Feulner: Of Free Speech and Chick-Fil-A

“We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles,” Cathy added in the interview that led to the controversy.

Or at least we used to. Feulner, president of the Heritage Foundation, makes a very good point: the shouting by the “left” over Cathy’s alleged “intolerance” hides their own intolerance of his views.

There are five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment (I wonder how many people can recite all of them?):

  • Religion
  • Speech
  • The press
  • Peaceably to assemble
  • Petition for redress of grievances

All that Cathy did was answer, honestly, a question. He said he is “very much supportive of the family, the biblical definition of the family unit.” And the interview was first printed in an obscure Baptist paper.

But the intolerance vigilantes found it—they have a lot of time on their hands, apparently—and blew it up. It gave all the “biggies” on the left to weigh in on the matter: Chicago Mayor (and Obama’s good friend) Rahm Emanuel, Chicago alderman Joe Moreno, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and Philadelphia city councilman James Kenney, among others. And the media (not our friend, remember) was overjoyed to trumpet their intolerance and outrage.

Cathy’s company is a model business citizen:

The Cathy family has been a model of corporate responsibility, helping tackle social problems and strengthen civil society. For years, they’ve taken concrete steps to strengthen families through the programs of its WinShape Foundation. Founded in 1984 by S. Truett Cathy, WinShape supports college scholarships, foster care and international ministries.

It works hard to strengthen marriage, offering counseling and help for couples in crisis, saving marriages that had been on the brink of divorce.

But none of that matters to the media in cahoots with those offended by Cathy’s remarks. Facts don’t matter. And neither does the First Amendment.

A Brief History of Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day

At the invitation by Mike Huckabee on his Facebook page to his fans to “take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, August 1st,” nearly a million people responded back to him. So many responded, in fact, that his Facebook page “disappeared” for several hours before coming back online.

The controversy began when Dan Cathy, president of the fast food franchise, responded to a question about homosexuality in a small newspaper, The Baptist Press, early last month. Cathy then expanded on his remarks in an interview on The Ken Coleman Show on July 18th:

I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, “We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.” I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is…

We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that…

We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that.

He concluded by saying, “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on Biblical principles.”

Not everyone is interested in sharing those values. First came former Obama chief of staff and now mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, who said

Dan Cathy, Reluctant Culture Warrior

Star Parker: Can it be un-American to be a Christian?

The fact that there is no evidence that Chick-fil-A discriminates in its business practices did not deter Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank from writing that Dan Cathy’s support of traditional marriage “…implied that gay people (not to mention divorced people) had no business eating at Chick-fil-A.”

Chick-Fil-A

Star Parker’s article is a pretty good summary of the attacks Dan Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A, has had to endure because he is a follower of Christ. She notes the blatant hypocrisy of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she spoke in Alexandria, Egypt:

…to us, real democracy means that every citizen has the right to live, work, and worship as they choose, whether they are man or woman, Muslim or Christian, or from any other background.

Nobody was there to ask her, however, about the attacks and threats directed to Dan Cathy’s company.

Parker also noted Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s discriminatory attack, saying “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values.” Just what those “Chicago values” actually are Emanuel failed to say, but one can guess: thuggery, oppression, fraud, deceit—all those things that go for making great politicians in Chicago.

Washington Post soiled itself, thanks to the ridiculous comments by one of its writers, Dana Milbank, who said that Dan Cathy’s support of traditional marriage “…implied that gay people (not to mention divorced people) had no business eating at Chick-fil-A.” Where that injudicious comment came from is anybody’s guess. But nothing close to reality, that’s for sure.

The one point Parker didn’t mention is Dan Cathy’s position as founder of Chick-fil-A and reluctant defender of the faith. Did Dan Cathy seek this role? Was he out looking to poke his stick into the eye of the atheists controlling the lamestream media? No. All he did was respond, in the Baptist Press for Heaven’s sake, to a question about his company’s values:

We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit…

which was enough to set off the PC army into its furious attacks.

But sometimes we are called upon, reluctantly, to take up His cause even though we did not seek it.

I’m going to “Eat Mor Chikin!”

Robert Knight: Eat Mor Chikin

The Atlanta-based, 1,600-restaurant chain, famous for its misspelling-prone cows that urge consumers to “eat mor chikin,” is under a full-scale fascistic assault, complete with obscene celebrity tweets and government bullying.

Eat Mor Chikin

Somehow Dan Cathy (the founder of Chick-fil-A) has successfully gotten under the skin of members of the Christian-bashing left, and he did it without saying a single word about “gay marriage.”

Ever on the alert for anything that smacks of biblical truth and how it might impact society (and turn it away from rampant secularism), liberals are jumping into the chicken fat and exposing their hatred through the expression of vitriol directed towards the company.

In essence, they are shaking their collective (I love that word, and so do they) fists at God. All HE did was give us directions and instructions and rules and laws to follow to obtain abundant life. Jesus says, in the Amplified version, in John 10:10:

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

Here is what sticks in their craw: Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life.” And they don’t want to hear the truth because it would mean having to bow down before it, and HIM, and their excessive sense of self—called hubris—won’t allow them to consider doing that.

So what they do instead is download filth and obscenity and vileness that merely expose their moral bankruptcy for the entire world to see.

Philadelphia Councilman James F. Kenney wrote to Cathy: “take a hike and take your intolerance with you.”

Roseanne Barr tweeted “anyone who eats [expletive thankfully deleted]-Fil-A deserves to get the cancer that is sure to come from eating antibiotic filled tortured chickens 4Christ.”

You get the idea. Got to run. I’m off to visit a nearby Chick-fil-A…

Boston: The Cradle and Grave of Liberty

Michelle Malkin: Hey, Boston: Leave Chick-fil-A Alone

In an interview with the Baptist Press last month, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy talked about his personal support of traditional family values and fidelity. “(Guilty) as charged,” he told the reporter. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Chick-fil-A

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is so far off base here…he’s off the reservation! Employing foul language and wielding the power of government like a baseball bat, Menino exclaimed:

Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston.

If they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult—unless they open up their policies.

We’re an open city. We’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the h-ll the name is, on our Freedom Trail.

Why don’t we start at the beginning? It’s not HIS freedom trail, it’s ours. It signifies the journey away from government oppression in the mid 1700’s Men stood up against the English crown and lost their lives because of it. When Boston was surrounded by English troops, other citizens from around the country supported them. On April 19th Paul Revere shouted: “The British are coming! The British are coming!”

But now the cry is: “You’re discriminating (somehow) and the freedom to exist for you—Chick-fil-A—has been cancelled. Go away and have a nice day!” So much for inclusion, Mr. Mayor!

I consider Boston to be both the cradle, and the grave, of liberty. Menino has done nothing to change my mind. Many years ago I attended the New England Rally for God, Family and Country, and learned firsthand just how intolerant and evil the powers in Boston were, and still are.

In order to create a photo-op for the front page of the Boston Globe—one of the world’s most despicable papers—one of their photographers started hassling one of the people sitting in the front row. After a few minutes of trying to get a rise out of the attendee by poking his camera in his face and refusing to leave him alone, the photographer got what he wanted: the citizen pushed him away, just as the camera clicked. The headline the next day, on the front page, was “Rally bully attacks cameraman!”

So I don’t go to Boston anymore. I haven’t for years. The place is Moscow on the Charles River!
