New Definition of Hate Group: Anti-Illegal Alien Activists; SPLC Works with Neo-Nazis to Help Aliens

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 (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.

Secure Borders Activist Joseph Turner Fights Home Depot

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 ), 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 ) 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 .)
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.

As a member of SOS, I can tell you Joe Turner is not a racist nor will he tolerate racists in Save Our State.
At a number of rallies, White supremacists tried to join in the SOS activities and Joe Turner asked them to leave immediately. We always thought they were there to set us up IMHO.
The Southern Poverty Center, on the other hand is actually a hate group. Do not forget, Morris Dees is the SPLC attorney that successfully filed a court case that awarded Casey Nethercott’s 70 acre ranch to Illegal Immigrants that were tresspassing on his ranch.
Janet Nepolitano, using the patriot act, had Casey Nethercott put in jail so he could not appear in court and the Judge gave the ranch to the Illegal Mexican immigrants.
Just do a google about the SPLC/Morris Dees/Nethercott and see what an anti American group is all about.

Home Depot: More like Illegal Alien Depot in my town. You can find the largest concentration of illegals looking for work right there in the parking lot. Here’s how you can help eliminate this problem.

WHAT??!!! Could they have stopped McVeigh by reporting him?

The SPLC is a part of a new group and at least three other organizations in that group have links to the Mexican_government.
The AZ Dem Party is calling FAIR potentially actionable names at a new anti-Graf site:
I double-checked some of the “facts” at their site here.

I was onced asked by a concerned citizen how I felt about the “Minuteman”. I thought it was a good idea at the time that Ameicans go down to the border and see for themselves. But the truth is: 1) The founder of the Minutemen is a shameless self-promoter 2) His agenda is electing himself to Congress 3) He has only a superficial understanding of the challenges of immigraiton enforcement. For instance, while Costa Mesa, California Police went to make their case to city council for immigration enforcement arrest authority for serious felons in their city. The founder of the Minutemen was conspicuously absent at a neighboring city campaigning for his election to Congress. The Costa Mesa PD could have used the support. Again, this guy shows he is off target when he says the Border Patrol has not been doing their job. That’s like saying the American Soldiers in Iraq have not been doing their job. Hey Idiot! The agents are risking their lives every day and evening apprehending hundreds of thousands of aliens. The problem is not with the Border Patrol, and long before your sorry ass got to the border, local citizens, off duty law enforcement, ranchers, retirees and businessmen have been calling in illegal alien groups to the Border Patrol. But they didn’t expect a seat in Congress for it. Not once in my fifteen years with the “G” has anyone really listened to the men and women that have to actually do the job. After 9/11 food was set up at a major US airport for LEOs working the craziness, I took a picture of the sign, it listed all the usual agencies, but the INS was specifically told they couldn’t eat there; even though, the few agents working foreign nationals were the only guys that really had the expertise in the days after the attack. Ask any agency, they’ll tell you that they don’t want to deal with Title 8 or illegal aliens, so treat the few you have willing to do the job like dirt, makes sense doesn’t it?

As with all hypocrites, the wider picture is always much more revealing. Morris Dees is a sexual degenerate and a rapist. In depositions from his former wife, it was revealed that Dees commited stat rape with his own stepdaughter who was 16 at the time! The deposition also reported that Dees was a sexual addict who commited adultery numerous times and who also engaged in bisexual degeneracy. Dees has offended so many individuals that he travels with armed bodyguards everywhere he goes and his fleecing operation in Montgomery is a virtual fortress with security cameras everywhere and barbed wire around the perimeter.
