Everyone remembers how the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate map” web site was used by gay activist Floyd Lee Corkins to plan and attempt a violent mass shooting hate crime at the headquarters of the Family Research Council, a conservative pro-marriage, pro-family think tank in Washington, D.C. And now the SPLC has been linked to domestic terrorism a second time.
Here’s the story from Daily Wire:
An attorney with the far-left nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was arrested Sunday for allegedly committing domestic terrorism to stop a police facility from being built.
The Atlanta police department said Sunday night that Thomas Webb Jurgens was among the 23 people charged after a “group of violent agitators used the cover of a peaceful protest of the proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers. They changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers.”
According to the State Bar of Georgia, Thomas Webb Jurgens is an attorney for the SPLC who was admitted to the bar in 2021.
The FBI is a long-time partner of the SPLC, and so it’s no surprise that they label religious people “domestic terrorists”:
Last month, an FBI whistleblower leaked a document showing that the FBI was investigating those practicing “radical-traditionalist Catholic ideology” as potential domestic extremists, in part by citing that the SPLC listed the faction among its “hate groups.”
The FBI previously called the SPLC “a well-known, established and credible” organization, and it has briefed the FBI on purported domestic terror, Fox News reported.
The FBI has links to left-wing hate groups, which is why they turn a blind eye to the crimes of other left-wing domestic terrorists, and prosecute peaceful pro-lifers and concerned parents instead. FBI leaders really have hate in their hearts for religious people, and it affects the way they do their jobs. These are not professional people. They lack integrity. These are immoral people who collect money from the law-abiding people, then they persecute those law-abiding people. They ignore real threats to America’s security and peace.
Let’s walk down memory lane and remember what happens when “non-religious” people who don’t like “organized religion” get hold of guns and decide to act on their non-religious convictions. In this case, the shooter was a gay activist who was a great admirer of Friedrich Nietzche, the atheist philosopher who proclaimed the death of God.
The Daily Caller reports.
The man accused of opening fire and shooting a security guard at the conservative Family Research Council headquarters last August plead guilty to three charges in a D.C. federal court Wednesday.
Floyd Lee Corkins, II of Herndon, Virginia entered guilty pleas to a federal weapons charge as well as a local terrorism charge and a charge of assault with intent to kill, according to news reports.
The Washington Post reports that, according to the plea agreement Corkins signed, he… “intended to kill as many people as possible” and planned to “smother Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces.”
Investigators found additional magazines and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his backpack on the day of the shooting.
Following the guilty plea the FRC issued a statement placing a large portion of the blame for the shooting at the feet of the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center, which had listed FRC as a hate group. FRC noted that prosecutors discovered Corkins identified his targets on the SPLC’s website.
“The day after Floyd Corkins came into the FRC headquarter and opened fire wounding one of our team members, I stated that while Corkins was responsible for the shooting, he had been given a license to perpetrate this act of violence by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center which has systematically and recklessly labeled every organization with which they disagree as a ‘hate group,’” FRC president Tony Perkins said in a statement, which went on to demand that SPLC stop attacking organizations that have a different opinion on gay rights.
The shooting happened shortly after Chick-fil-A made headlines over the company president’s disagreement with gay marriage.
Why does anyone think that people on the secular left are tolerant? They keep talking about “atheist objective morality” and “secular humanism”, but all I see from the secular left is domestic terrorism.
One thought on “Southern Poverty Law Center hate group is again linked to domestic terrorism”
What in modern demonocrazy is called domestic terrorism would in medeival times be living out your convixtions. Looks like the Left wants to return to the middle ages.
