An organization which claims it is dedicated to "fighting hate and bigotry, and seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society" seems to have taken on the role instead of simply defending our corporate owned government at all costs and attacking any of its detractors.
On a list which for the SPLC's supporters, one can only guess, is probably meant to be a list of dangerous types, we find people like Ron Paul, listed as a 'radical' conservative. Why? Because he wants to end the U.S. wars of aggression? Because he knows our financial system is corrupt?
Also on the list, Luke Rudkowski, who has fought for medical assistance for the 9/11 emergency workers, and wants a new investigation of 9/11, and has founded a youth group, We Are Change, with many chapters across the nation who protest and actively work to get more then just propaganda from our media and our politicians. Oh, dear me, scary scary bigot he must be. He actually thinks the American establishment is corrupt, he must be a racist.
They lump people with principles and ideals, like those, together with demonic shape-shifting false prophets like Glenn Beck, who may very well be working for the CIA.
SPLC, get with it, or get out.
As Bob Dylan says: "Your old road is rapidly changing, get out of the new one, if you can't lend a hand."
Below is a video, of the 'dangerous patriot', Luke Rudkowski, who has recently gotten the attention of Stephen Colbert.
