“The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it.” So said George Orwell. And we are a society largely adrift.
Facts, evidence, reality are tossed off like some out of date, old fashioned idea. Truth is “hate.” Truth is islamofauxbic. Anyone who criticizes oppression, subjugation, supremacism is smeared, defamed, blacklisted. Posturing as humanitarians, vicious hate groups like the SPLC are deemed legitimate authorities by cultural and political power players. The SPLC is not a group dedicated to the defense of human rights. It is a hard-left attack machine. Vets, patriots, and freedom’s defenders are in its crosshairs. Even Presidential hopeful Ben Carson was on their hate list for some time.
Look at this article. It’s far worse than mere yellow journalism. It’s a blood libel. In a rational world, writer George Mattar would challenge Potok’s nazi-like rhetoric. But the world is not rational, and this is war in the information battle-space.
“Domestic terrorism like the attack in San Bernardino last year during which 14 people were killed by two Muslim extremists are the propaganda work of anti-Muslim ideologues like Pamela Geller, the most visible and flamboyant person in the anti-Muslim movement, and the injection of hatred against Muslims, Potok said.”
Intellgencer “reporter” George Mattar reports this outrageous libel without so much as query or comment.
The San Bernardino jihadis were devout Muslims who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. They went on a killing spree in the cause of Allah. The Southern Poverty Law Center says the cold-blooded murder of 14 innocent revelers at a Christmas party is my doing because I oppose the very ideology behind the unspeakable slaughter. The focus of my work for the past decade is to educate and increase awareness of the jihad threat and Islamic supremacism. And I was right. Look around — devout Muslims are waging holy war across the world. Why isn’t that the focus of this libelous article? Instead, media lapdogs continue to murder the good names of those that dare to speak candidly about jihad and sharia.

Why didn’t “reporter” George Mattar ask Mark Potok about members of the SPLC who have committed a number of acts of terrorism? Several years ago, SPLC member Floyd Corkins stormed the Family Research Council’s Washington, D.C. headquarters and began shooting. Why? Because the FRC had been listed as a hate group by the SPLC.
“Study: Hate groups on the rise across the U.S.” The Intelligencer, February 28, 2016;,
The number of hate groups in the United States is on the rise, according to a study by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Extremist groups in 2015 numbered 892 — up 14 percent from the 784 in 2014, the study claims.
Pennsylvania ranks fifth on the list of states with the most hate groups — 40 in 2015, up from 38 in 2014, according to the center.
The top four states on the list are Texas, California, Florida and New York.
The SPLC includes as hate groups neo-Nazi, racist skinhead, neo-Confederate and anti-Muslim groups and the Ku Klux Klan.
Anti-Muslim organizations have been growing more than any other type of extremist group — from 24 in 2014 to 34 in 2015, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center report.
Potok said the growth has been spurred by terrorist attacks and threats from the Islamic State.
Domestic terrorism like the attack in San Bernardino last year during which 14 people were killed by two Muslim extremists are the propaganda work of anti-Muslim ideologues like Pamela Geller, the most visible and flamboyant person in the anti-Muslim movement, and the injection of hatred against Muslims, Potok said.
Potok said many people believed Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump when he said 25 percent of American Muslims support violent jihad, but serious polls — including one by the Pew Research Center — have shown the claim is false. “Support for violent jihad is very tiny,” Potok said.
Jacob Bender, who leads the Philadelphia chapter of the Council of America Islamic Revolution, said the hatred toward Muslims is totally unwarranted.
He said 1.6 billion Muslims practice their faith worldwide, but only about 20 percent are from the Middle East, where many people think they originate.
He said the main reason for the increase in hate groups is the economy and prejudice.
“The downturn in the economy is a prerequisite for hate groups to blame others for their economic hardship. They blame immigrants. Oh, ‘let’s go build a wall, let’s keep them out of the country,’” he said.
“Muslims have been in America since before the American Revolution. In fact, most of the Muslims here are second-, third- and fourth-generation blacks,” he said.
Bender, who is Jewish and the first non-Muslim leader of any of the 30 chapters of CAIR, said his group offers legal representation to Muslims and those put on “watch lists.”
