Words of Hate Transformed Into Art

A few choice words about the SPLC's "hate map" fundraising tool.

Last year the SPLC's mostly elderly donors took its spurious "hate group" numbers at face value and sent in more than $40 million donor-dollars, or more than $4,600 dollars every hour of every day.

That figure does not include the $18 MILLION dollars in interest generated by the SPLC's quarter-BILLION dollar cash reserves.

Take a look at who the SPLC's "hate groups" really are and how much money is involved before making a decision on their accuracy.

Hate Crimes Against Latinos Rise In California

No one should ever be the victim of a crime, especially a hate crime, but in the big picture, 119 anti-Latino hate crimes against a population of close to 14 million doesn't exactly constitute a crime wave.

Groups like the SPLC love to speak in terms of percentages, "Anti-Latino hate crimes up by 50%" because it looks good in their fund-raising materials, but the actual hard numbers don't bear out their claims.

This is not the case with Brian Levin, however, the "Director" of the one-man "Center for the Study of Hate." Unlike his mentors at the SPLC, Mr. Levin has never used his letterhead "center" for personal gain.

And, of course, what both "experts" neglect to mention is that there were nearly 3 times as many reported hate crimes against African Americans in California last year, and 4 times as many nationally.
