It has been reported that Floyd Lee Corkins, the man who entered armed and fired shots in the Family Research Council building in Washington D.C. is the first man to be charged with and convicted of committing an act of terrorism under the Omnibus Anti-Terrorism Act of 2002 (DC ST § 22-3153). Dana Loesch shared on Twitter today a news article which indicated that prosecutors had apparently reviewed Corkins' confiscated personal computer and found that "he identified his targets on the Southern Poverty Law Center's web site."
Loesch then asks on Twitter whether as a result of this incident if SPLC should be "classified as a hate group now" - sharply alluding of course to the fact that the organization has used strawman arguments to designate and blacklist numerous organizations as being dangerous or potential terrorism vectors. As you know, even the Tenth Amendment Center which advocates decentralization and local control was ridiculously listed by SPLC on their McCartyesque list of terribles.
"Physician, heal thyself!"
This is truly sad when you think about what America has become. You know I wonder what men like Edward R. Murrow would say about today's world of political correctness and eggshell-thinskinned public egos would think about all this. "We will not walk in fear, one of another," Murrow famously said. "We will not be driven into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men - not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular."
Today these "lists" and strawman extremist accusations make the Bill of Rights and Constitution of no effect. Americans have been driven into an age of unreason, of histrionics and of moral degeneracy. We call evil good and good evil.
