I am not an attorney, but it appears the SPLC may be liable as an accomplice to the tragedy; involuntary manslaughter? Does leaving their “Hate” posting on their website constitute greater negligence than if they removed it after being informed of the tragedy? Can we get an opinion from a legal professional?
You arn't a lawyer for good reason. Charging the SPLC would be a ridiculous and dangerous precedent and infringement on free speech.. Unless we are ready to charge anti-abortion organizations with involuntary manslaughter for every abortion doctor who's been shot.
Ok. Are you then willing to Glenn Beck accountable for the guy who went to shoot up the Tides Foundation? After all, he said he learned about it from listening to Beck.
Are you going to hold Sara Palin accountable for the Arizona shootings? After all, she had a map on her website with crosshairs over the districts of politicians she did not like.
Do you want to hold Jenny McCarthy liable for the deaths of the children who were not vaccinated because their parents listened to people like her?
KRETINC333, The SPLC is in itself a hate group. In my humble opinion, they should be held with some co-responsibility.
Yeah ExKreaton! That would be like....... Suing Smith and Wesson because someone was shot by one of their guns!
SPLC should be held accountable. They have listed all patriot groups, tea party and even Catholics as 'hate groups'. They are the biggest hate group on the map!
^they don't list Catholics as a hate group. It is a specific sect of Catholicism which the Vatican doesn't recognize. These Catholics vehemently hate Jews and other groups. They also name a few Jewish groups as hate groups, but not the Jewish religion as a whole.
However I do agree with you that labeling the "patriot movement" and/or sovereign citizen movement a hate group isn't right. Any group can have "hateful" elements. If these movements are hate groups then many leftist movements could be hate groups also.
I like a lot of what the SPLC does, but sometimes they get too ideological. However most groups do that-- left and right.
GADS listing a homophobic organization as a hate group and involuntary man slaughter are two very very different things!
Patriot, you know you're over the target when you start taking flak. These libs have been exposed as the violent murderers they are. They've come on here to troll to try to deflate that exposure. They can't stand the fact that they are everything they accuse us of.
You libs need to come to terms with the fact you're all potential murderers. This shooter is all of you, you all share what is in his head. The fact you come on here to deflect and blame FRC for it show us all you would love to do the same thing. People who don't share your "progressive" view of the world must be silenced or killed. Personally, I hope you do. I am armed as well, and I assure you I am a better shot than the security guard. I won't miss, and I won't lose sleep over it.

Great article. Short, concise, and supported with facts to overcome emotional rhetoric.

Similar to Earnest T’s arsenal, Ellie May Clampett used her bra as her assault weapon. “It ain’t to accurate, but it sure throws a heap of rocks!”

The amount of debt purchased by overseas purchasers have already diminished significantly. The Federal Reserve has been buying the majority of our debt since QE2. Basically, we just print more money, and we have more dollars purchasing fewer goods and services. Eventually, this will lead to pronounced inflation. Can anyone convince me I am wrong?
Did you consider that the nine victims in the “evading vehicle” were simply returning home after exercising their Department of Justice-given right to vote early without showing an ID?

Honor Flight is a nationwide program 100% funded by donations. They fly WWII Veterans with a volunteer guardian out of more than fifty cities to Washington DC to visit historic sites including the WWII Memorial. I have been a guardian for three of our heroes with Honor Flight Chicago. I can only speak with experience about the support from people in Chicago and Washington DC, but the people who come out to cheer these heroes are phenomenal.
If you want to see an incredibly inspiring display of love, honor, respect, and gratitude from thousands of people at one time, search “Honor Flight” in Google (or any Internet search engine) and find out when the next Honor Flight near you takes our heroes from your community to Washington DC. Be part of the thousands of people cheering, waving flags, shaking hands and kissing these heroes in the airport as they return home from one their ode memorial visit. This 1-day experience is a gift every WWII veteran deserves, and joining the reception at the airport when our heroes return in the evening is something every American should do at least once a year. I guarantee you will be glad you were part of the experience.
