Consider for a moment a large barn housing hundreds of head of cattle. The industrious, scientifically advanced farmer sees to it that the bovine fecal matter is collected and stored in vats. The resultant methane is gathered and used for fuel, then the spent raw materials become fertilizer for cash crops. There is, of course, much unpleasantness associated with the process — mostly the horrible smell — but the financial gain and low environmental impact are worth it. One man’s waste is another man’s profit.
Now consider the Marxist-style agitprop of the big media and the entertainment industry, which gather into barns the minds of our well-informed electorate, for the purposes of socially engineering their brave new liberal-progressivist-socialist-feminist world. This process, naturally, produces its own waste by way of mental excrement. Let’s call it “hate.”
Who (Oh pray tell, who!) will collect the smelly stuff so as to make stink profitable?
Enter the Southern Poverty Law Center. Says Elizabeth Wright:
This month, the Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR) has published an excellent analysis of the SPLC’s attack on FAIR and other immigration reform groups, entitled, Guide to Understanding the Tactics of the Southern Poverty Law Center in the Immigration Debate. It offers much-needed insights. Besides giving the ordinary citizen an opportunity to view the insides of this “watchdog” group, the report should become a reference guide for members of the media, who generally take the easy way out when covering stories about race and/or immigration.
Reporters, editorialists, and feature writers are notorious for accepting, without further investigation, reams of data and materials disseminated to them by a cluster of self-appointed overseers of American society, among the most prominent, the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the NAACP, and the Southern Poverty Law Center. [See also here and here.]
Thanks to the fawning acceptance granted them by the establishment media, these groups, and several more like them, have acquired an almost quasi-governmental status in the public mind. When they spread lies, there are few people who will risk inevitable public denigration and stand up to challenge them. In regard to the SPLC, FAIR’s new report does just that.
