When a civil rights group hires all whites... what do you have?

As we are sonorously and endlessly told, the Southern Poverty Law Center is all about exposing the "hate" and working for "civil rights" in America. But a new website, Watching the Watchdogs, has tracked down the salaries and identities of SPLC's top officers and it is interesting to note that they are all white people. Not a "minority" in the bunch. And they are all making a pretty penny, too.

So, what do you have when a "civil rights" organization that tries to fight the "hate" out there, an organization that claims it is all about protecting America's minorities, hasn't hired any minorities? Maybe the word "hypocrites" comes to mind?

In June I also wrote a piece on the SPLC. In it I noted that the entirety of the Old Media use the SPLC as their number one source for information on "hate groups" and the danger of so-called "white militias," but I ask what other sources there are for the "hate groups" that the SPLC claims it is tracking. The answer is, none. There are no other sources and the Old Media simply swallows the SPLC's claims whole.

No one checks the SPLCs claims, no one has any other statistics to tell us if the SPLC is right or not. We are forced to realize that the claims about the number and virulence of "hate groups" in America are coming from only one source: the SPLC.

And how does the SPLC make its money, again? By claiming that there are hundreds if not thousands of "hate groups" in America!

So, a single group that has a self-serving reason to multiply the number and dnager of "hate groups" in America serves as our only source for the numbers on that very subject? Seems a bit hard to accept, doesn't it? Yet the Old Media never once questions a single claim by the SPLC. Never.

And now we discover that this supposed civil rights organization is run exclusively by white folks? It all seems somewhat absurd, doesn't it?
