Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has added Ben Carson to their extremist watch list. He is in good company. The SPLC considers anyone with religious beliefs to be extremist. More specifically, they added Carson to their watch list because he believes marriage is meant to be between one man and one woman. A second reason they give is because Dr. Carson mentioned….gasp… the Bible, which the perverts at the SPLC find very threatening.
“[I]f we can redefine marriage as between two men or two women or any other way based on social pressures as opposed to between a man and a woman, we will continue to redefine it in any way that we wish, which is a slippery slope with a disastrous ending, as witnessed in the dramatic fall of the Roman Empire.”
“What we need to do is come up with something simple. And when I pick up by Bible, you know what I see? I see the first individual in the universe, God, and he’s given us a system. It’s called a tithe.” (Flat tax)
For these remarks, the SPLC put Dr Carson on the same list with neo-Nazis and white supremacists. (There are no black supremacists on the list) Of course the SPLC doesn’t consider themselves extremists.
You may remember the infamous “Hate Map” put out by the SPLC that pinpointed all the groups the SPLC thinks you should hate. One man, Floyd Lee Corkins, used the map to locate the Family Research Council HQ in Washington D.C. He entered with the intention of killing as many people as he could, after which, he wanted to smear Chick-Fil-A sandwich in their face. Corkins still isn’t on the extremist list. Why not? Because they consider him a hero, not an extremist.
The FBI did remove links to the SPLC from their website, pointing to the fact that Corkins was inspired by the SPLC.
