Obama FBI Partners With
Left-Wing Extremist Group
By Matt Barber
of this Obama administration’s “progressive” radicalism becomes more evident
with each passing day. In recent months, there has been a drastic spike
in acts of both anti-Christian and anti-conservative discrimination
and intimidation on military bases across the country. This
mounting harassment is not being carried out at the hands of regular enlisted
folk but, rather, at the hands of high-ranking officials who, in their
official capacity, are targeting Christian and conservative organizations
and individuals in an effort to silence them.
long been suspected that the Obama administration is using propaganda
circulated by the roundly discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, or
SPLC, a left-wing extremist group that, in recent years, has adopted two
primary goals: 1) raising truckloads of money and 2) smearing as “domestic
hate groups” dozens of mainstream Christian ministries like the Family
Research Council, or FRC, and the American Family Association, or AFA.
suspicion has now been verified.
The problem on military bases has gotten so bad, in fact, that the U.S. Congress is demanding answers from the Pentagon. Recently, the AFA-affiliated OneNewsNow.com newsgroup reported that “Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Mississippi) is 1 of 38 members of Congress signing off on a letter to the Secretary of the Army especially about an incident last month at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, in which the Tupelo-based American Family Association was labeled in Army training material as a ‘hate group.’ The Army initially claimed it was an isolated incident.
as we looked into it, [we found] this is not an isolated incident,’ Nunnelee
[told] OneNewsNow. ‘There are a number of cases where the Army has singled
out the American Family Association and other Christian organizations
as hate groups, and service men and women have been threatened with sanctions
if they support these groups.”
After a tremendous public outcry and in an embarrassing slap to the face of the SPLC the Pentagon quickly backpedaled, later apologizing about the Camp Shelby incident and publicly admitting that, despite the SPLC’s absurd claims to the contrary, the AFA is not a “hate group.”
rather than distancing itself from the anti-Christian SPLC as one might
expect, the Obama administration has, instead, strengthened ties to the
hard-left outfit. Even after this string of military scandals.
instance, I recently learned that on its official website, the
FBI lists as one of its primary “hate crimes resources,” the
Southern Poverty Law Center.
This is especially mysterious when you consider that the FBI’s own verified hate crimes statistics are completely at odds with numbers put out by the SPLC in its fundraising propaganda.
Whereas the FBI indicates that there was a sharp 24.3 percent decrease in hate crimes from 1996 to 2010, with racial hate crimes dropping by 41.9 percent, the SPLC incongruously claims that since 2000, the number of “hate groups” has somehow increased by 67.3 percent.
your money right away!
FBI’s empirical data doesn’t track with the SPLC’s political propaganda.
Consequently, by partnering so closely with this discredited organization,
the Department of Justice significantly undermines its own credibility.
while the SPLC has proven utterly unreliable in its actuarial acumen
as well as intentionally dishonest it has also proven demonstrably dangerous
in its prolonged campaign of anti-Christian agitation.
may recall that it was the Southern Poverty Law Center’s somewhat clever,
yet patently dishonest and reprehensible strategy of juxtaposing, as fellow
“hate groups,” mainstream Christian organizations like the FRC and the
AFA alongside violent extremist groups like the Aryan Brotherhood and
the Skin Heads that, on Aug. 15, 2012, led to an actual
act of domestic terrorism.
date, “gay” activist Floyd Lee Corkins II who later confessed in court
that he was spurred-on by the SPLC’s anti-Christian materials entered
the lobby of the Washington-based Family Research Council intending to
kill every Christian within.
was armed with both a gun and a backpack full of ammunition. He also had
15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches that he intended to rub in the faces of his
would-be victims. (FRC had recently defended the food chain’s COO Dan
Cathy for pro-natural marriage statements he made.)
The only thing standing between Corkins and mass murder was FRC facilities manager and security specialist Leo Johnson. As Corkins shouted disapproval for FRC’s “politics,” he shot Johnson who, despite a severely wounded arm, managed to tackle Corkins and disarm him.
actions, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said, “The security guard here
is a hero, as far as I’m concerned.”
hearing of Leo’s selfless act of heroism, I was reminded of John 15:13:
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his
according to both the SPLC and the FBI (by virtue of its close ties to
the group), Leo’s heart is, instead, full of hate. Everyone at FRC is
if you happen to be a Bible-believing Christian, you too are hateful.
You get the drill.
Obama administration has absolutely no business partnering with this extremist
organization and it’s an outrage that it does. If this troubles you
as much as it does me, please contact the FBI at (202) 324-3000 and respectfully
voice your concern. Then call or email your local FBI office. (Click

Americans light-up the FBI’s phone lines and demand that all facets of
government completely disassociate from the SPLC and disavow any further
use of its anti-Christian propaganda.
Southern Poverty Law Center must be held accountable for its inflammatory
and potentially deadly anti-Christian bigotry.
