It’s Official: Young Americans for Freedom Now a “Hate Group”

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember how I told you about the deceptively-named Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) new definition of “hate group”?
The SPLC–the most well-endowed (over $100 million in assets and cash on hand) liberal activist group (even more than the ACLU)–decided that those of us for stronger enforcement of immigration laws are haters, and therefore, groups dedicated to that are “hate groups” committing “hate crimes” by their very speech.
Now, the SPLC has taken their absurd definition of “hate groups” a step further. The Detroit Free Press reports that the SPLC labelled the Michigan State University chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom (MSU-YAF) as a hate group. The group is now listed on SPLC’s web site under “general hate”.

So what did MSU-YAF do that is so “hateful”? Well, it has expressed views against illegal immigration, gay rights, and affirmative action. Um, those are the views of at least half–if not the majority–of Americans. And–horror of horrors!–the group sponsored “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” day. Yup, that’s hateful to want our government to enforce immigration law and tighten the borders.
And gay groups are upset that YAF-MSU brought Minutemen founder Chris Simcox to speak on campus. The nerve.
To those of you who still believe the phony TV movies about SPLC and its founder Morris Dees, here’s a clue: SPLC is not about combatting racism and the Klan, anymore. The SPLC is about silencing YOU.
And the Michigan Democratic Party seized on this carefully crafted and phony “distinction” bestowed by the SPLC upon YAF-MSU. Yup, the Democrats and the SPLC work hand-in-hand to stifle debate by labelling all those who disagree as “haters” and “hate groups.”
First, the SPLC lawyers seized a ranch in Arizona from strong border advocates and gave it to illegal aliens. Now, they’re labelling conservatives as “hate groups.”
Your turn is coming soon.

To refresh your memory, here’s the SPLC’s “creative” new definition of a “hate group”:

The law center defines a hate group as on that singles out and promotes hatred of another group, based on . . . immigration status.

Nice.
Whatever happened to “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”?? I guess freedom of speech only applies to those who say what they want to hear.

Here’s a preview of what the SPLC and all the other lefty silencers would like: a Finnish blogger is under investigation by the police and going for a court appearance on Monday. Why? criticizing Muslims, which violates a law in Finland:

So if I’m a true die hard American patriot who cares about the preservation of our borders,language,culture,( I’m quoting Michael Savage for those who are familiar with his radio show which I recommend you tune in to),morality,freedom,and the pursuit of happiness, then by definition, I would be considered a bigoted,racist and homophobic hatemonger. In other words, those who are suicidal on a more national scale are branded as “progressives” who want to incorporate “diversity” and push for multi-culturism. It may seem benign at first sight but in the long run as we can very well sell its very omnious to our national security, democracy,and sovereignty. With our borders infringed out of the courtesy of the lack of diligence from the Bush Adiministration, there has been a statistic escalation in rape,murder,drug trafficking and violence. As far as I’m concerned with homosexual marriage,its not only subverting the morality in this country,its also a detriment to one of the foundations of this country which is traditional marriage between a man and a woman. If you want to see want the legislation of homosexual marriage as well as many other sexual/moral decadencies and amnesty to the multitudes of illegal immigrtants,look how far Europe has gotten with it. They are at a verge of a demographic extinction and we are frighteningly not much further away from them. Just because you liberals want to commit suicide with your ultra-tolerant dumbass policies, it doesn’t me you you can coerce me to go along with that setiment nor can you deter me from stating my opinions which I am constitutionally entitled to. Bear in that askew mind of yours that just because somebody made a comment that highly offended your political sensibilities, it doesn’t warrent your censorship nor legal action which you often try to do. If I am a right wing radical to you, then what could be more complimentary? In case you are not aware of the fact that we happen to be living in the USA not in the USSR. We can do without the thought filters while America is still a democracy. Try to sue me for than one if you dare.

Hello!?!? America, is anybody home? Land of the free, home of the brave? Are we still alive in this country? Are some of our forefathers really people like Patrick Henry, John Adams and George Washington? God help us if we don’t band together and stand up to this tyranny. Our posterity will hate everyone of us…

Well there go our 1st amendment rights out the door! I couldn’t agree more with you Jew Chick. This kind of censorship is happening all over America’s collage campuses. I guess it’s OK to censor anyone who disagrees with them especially anyone to the right on the political spectrum. Can anyone imagine what is going to happen if the Democrats win the Whitehouse in the upcoming election? I hate to quote Sly Stallone but in Rambo 2 at the end his character says “just for once I wish that our country would love us as much as we love it, that’s what I want”. People are dying in the military every day to protect the American way of life and our Constitution, and a group like this basically spits on their sacrifices and tries to do the exact opposite. Please wake up people!

I’m also a Savage listener (who’s also the only black PRS member), but I’m also a young american….so you know I’m upset about this iusse.
How can we wake up america…especally my generation, when they’re too busy playing Xbox 360, watching MTV, or in some cases…smoking weed?

Are the Razi’s on the list? LULAC? Maldef, Mecha, Islam? Lot’s of hate coming from those groups. Is every view contrary to SPLC marked as hate? BTW, illegal aliens have no immigration status. Burglarizing another nation is not the same as having filled out immigration papers. Just criminals, nothing more. Not that I hate them, I just want them all to go home.
