New Definition of Hate Group: Anti-Illegal Alien Activists; SPLC Works with Neo-Nazis to Help Aliens
By Debbie Schlussel
Today’s Wall Street Journal (subscription only) has an interesting piece on anti-illegal alien activists, particularly Joseph Turner–who deserves our kudos.
In June, we wrote about how Turner, founder of Save Our State, was physically attacked by illegal alien activists (captured on video) when he tried to get anti-illegal alien measures on the ballot in San Bernardino, California. Turner’s one-man anti-illegal alien shop has managed to spur laws in localities and states, nationwide, to make it harder for illegal aliens to live among us. (Check out Save Our State’s excellent website.)
The Wall Street Journal article reports that Turner alone has spurred 10 towns across America to pass anti-illegal alien ordinances. And, because of him, dozens of other towns are considering such measures. But the article is interesting for what it doesn’t say as well as what it does say.
First, there’s the falsely-named Southern Poverty Law Center’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.
Yes, you and I–and any American who wants secure borders–are vessels of “hatred.” My friend, Dan Stein, who leads the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), leads a “hate group.” Incredible.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which claims it tracks “extremist groups,” tracks groups like FAIR, the Center for Immigration Studies, the Minutemen, and a host of other groups that are doing the vital job that some Americans (like Julie L. Myers) just won’t do.
In case you are one of those people who still donates to the SPLC in the name of stopping racism and anti-Semitism, this is what you are actually contributing to–the weakening of our borders and the illegal alien invasion. (We’ve already detailed how the SPLC is successfully using our courts to take property away from Americans and give it to illegal aliens.)
The newspaper reports that neo-Nazis and White supremacists appeared at Joe Turner’s anti-illegal alien rallies and waved Nazi and Confederate flags. Turner did not invite them, and his group left when they showed up.
Now to what the Journal article doesn’t say: The SPLC is notorious for planting its undercover personnel deep inside neo-Nazi and White supremacist groups for one purpose–to defame legitimate secure borders advocates, like the Minutemen. Minutemen activists have identified spies in their ranks that were planted by SPLC and others in neo-Nazi groups who came to their events for the purpose of defaming and de-legitimizing them.
What’s disturbing is that the FBI has been working with the SPLC to do this. Your tax dollars at work. We wonder whether the neo-Nazis and White supremacists who showed up to wreck Turner’s anti-illegal alien rally consisted of some SPLC spies who brought them there.
We’d say it’s a sure bet.
It is well known and documented that organizations like the ACLU and SPLC had double agents working for them also working with Timothy McVeigh. The ACLU and SPLC were working with the FBI on this, and have been working with the FBI against the Minutemen. We wonder if they’re also working with ICE and Border Patrol.
Then there is the portion of the WSJ article that mentions the Archbishop of San Bernardino and Auxiliary Bishop Rutilio del Riego, who’ve tried to counter Joseph Turner’s effective secure borders activism:
As fear spred in Hispanic-heavy communities, the Archbishop of San Bernardino called an emergency meeting of all parish priests and dioceses to discuss how to counter the measure. . . . We wanted to portray this as a human issue, not a political or religious issue,” says Auxiliary Bishop Rutilio del Riego.
But, in fact, it is a political issue–one in which the Catholic Church, or any house of worship of any religion, has no business getting involved in. Somebody ought to get the IRS to look at whether the tax-exempt status of the San Bernardino portion of the Catholic Church should continue.
Turner and Save Our State hold a lot of anti-alien rallies at Home Depot, where illegals gather to get jobs. Read more on Home Depot’s incredibly outrageous role in aiding and abetting the illegal alien invasion.
