The SPLC’s crusade against white rights: examples
Jul 21st, 2011 by Unamused
Yesterday I explained that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) seeks to undermine white racial consciousness; that is, to deny the white race its positive identity, to fabricate a negative identity for it, and thus to discourage white people from identifying as white. The SPLC must therefore be considered anti-white. Their tactics include exaggerating white hate crimes against blacks, Hispanics and Muslims, and ignoring hate crimes against whites. The latter should be considered censorship, since the SPLC is widely considered to be the pre-eminent authority on hate crime in the United States of America.
Today we will look at examples of those tactics.
The SPLC maintains a list of so-called hate incidents:
Incidents of apparent hate crimes and hate group activities listed here are drawn primarily from media sources. These incidents include only a fraction of the approximately 191,000 reported and unreported hate crimes that a 2005 government report estimated occur annually.
An aside on the government’s hate crime statistics: the New Century Foundation’s definitive study of race and crime in the USA, the second edition of “The Color of Crime” (2005), discusses the FBI’s annual “Hate Crime Statistics” report. It found that
- local officials decide which crimes are hate crimes
- only 0.3 percent of inter-racial crimes reported to the police are considered to be motivated, even “in part,” by racial bias
- in 2002, only 2,168 of the 5,738 so-called hate crimes were violent — insignificant next to the average 1.68 million violent inter-racial crimes committed annually from 2001 to 2003, the vast majority committed by blacks against whites
- Hispanics are a victim category but not a perpetrator category, which may be why the FBI reported that in 2002, 130 “whites” committed racially motivated anti-white hate crimes
- of the six hate crime murders committed in 2002 (three “white”-on-black, one “white”-on-Hispanic, one Indian-on-“white” and one black-on-Hispanic), only three appear to have been racially motivated: one white-on-black, one black-on-Hispanic and one Hispanic-on-black, the latter reported as “white”-on-black
These facts call into question all government hate crime statistics.
The SPLC claims its own list is “drawn primarily from media sources.” In fact, the list is clearly and spectacularly biased against whites. To prove this, I chose at random, from the website of the Council of Conservative Citizens (which, incidentally, the SPLC considers a “hate group”), four violent crimes satisfying the following conditions:
- the perpetrators were non-white and the victims were white
- the crime was clearly motivated, at least in part, by racial bias, making it a hate crime by definition
- the crime was reported by the mainstream media to the extent that a Google search turned up multiple stories
Then I looked up those incidents in the SPLC’s list. This is what I found.
On August 18, 2009, in Buffalo, NY, a group of 10–15 black men brutally attacked a white man, Brian Milligan, for dating a black woman. They beat him with pieces of concrete, inflicting damage to his brain, and kicked him in the face, breaking his jaw. Sources: True Crime Report and CNN Justice.
The SPLC did not include this hate crime on their list. However, they did elect to include two incidents from the previous week:
Leaflets from the United White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan were left in yards.
Three juveniles were arrested for vandalizing a park with racist remarks.
Type: Legal Developments
They also included these incidents in Buffalo:
Dozens of swastikas were painted on a house.
A woman was stabbed in the eye by another woman shouting with anti-gay taunts outside a lesbian bar.
In late 2009, in Denver, CO, police arrested 38 blacks for racially motivated assaults against whites and Hispanics. According to the Denver Post,
Police Chief Gerry Whitman said it was perhaps the largest racially motivated crime spree in the city’s history.
The SPLC included these hate crimes on their list as a single entry about only one of the 38 blacks arrested, without any mention of the races involved:
A juvenile was arrested on charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and bias-motivated crimes in connection with 26 racially motivated assaults in the downtown area.
Type: Legal Developments
The incident (an arrest for 26 hate crimes) is classified as a “legal development” — not an assault, like the following entry about what is clearly a legal development in a case involving a homeless man shouting insults at a black woman:
William Bagosy, 49, pled guilty to third- degree assault and was sentenced to 78 days in jail for shouting racial slurs at a black woman outside a homeless shelter in November.
Almost everything else about this entry is also wrong. Bagosy actually pled guilty to misdemeanor harassment in June 2008, for shouting racial slurs outside a homeless shelter in May of that year. His motive: a lack of hot dog buns. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail after violating a condition of his unsupervised probation; specifically, going back to the convenience store that ran out of hot dog buns. Then Bagosy was arrested in November for sexually assaulting a homeless woman. There was no apparent racial motive. He pled guilty to misdemeanor third-degree assault and was sentenced to 78 days in jail. It took me all of two Google searches to find this information, demonstrating that the SPLC’s researchers are lazy and incompetent, if not dishonest.
In general, whenever the victims are black, the SPLC includes that information:
High school students chanted racial slurs and derogatory terms at visiting black basketball players during a game.
The “racial slurs and derogatory terms” used in this “intimidation,” according to the Denver Post: “marshmallow,” “buckwheat” and “shrimp boat.”
On May 25, 2010, in Seattle, WA, a white man, Shane McClellan, was held hostage and tortured for hours by a black man and an Asian man, simply because he was white. They beat him, robbed him, whipped him with his own belt, threatened him with a gun and a knife, burned him with cigarettes, and urinated on him.
The SPLC included this hate crime in their list, but claimed the perpetrators only beat their victim, and classified it as an act of vandalism:
A black man and an Asian man beat a 16-year-old boy for being white.
I find it difficult to believe this entry isn’t the SPLC’s idea of a joke.
On August 14, 2010, in Des Moines, IA, 30 to 40 black youths roamed the Iowa State Fairgrounds attacking whites at random, an event they called “Beat Whitey Night.” Sources: The Smoking Gun, the Examiner, NBC (with video), and KSDK (accompanied by a picture of a white fist next to the word “Racism”).
The SPLC did not include this hate crime in their list. In fact, they included only one “hate crime” committed in Des Moines in 2010, an act of vandalism — actual vandalism this time, not hours of racially motivated torture:
Des Moines, IA
Vandals painted a swastika and the letters “KKK” on a man’s truck.
Let me emphasize that I chose the four examples of anti-white hate crime at random from the Council of Conservative Citizens’ website and without first checking the SPLC’s (lack of) coverage. Nevertheless, I achieved a 100 percent success rate in identifying anti-white bias. Thus, with very little effort, I have demonstrated that the SPLC ignores, censors, understates, incorrectly classifies (to the point of absurdity), and omits critical details from hate crimes against whites, while overstating hate crimes against other groups. Therefore, the SPLC must itself be considered a racist organization: a hate group.
