The Southern Poverty Law Center is a group of leftist loons.

The center only investigates alleged whit hate groups.

Not once to they look at black,hispanic or oriental hate groups.

Why won’t the Southern Poverty Law Center investigate non white haters?

(CNSNews.com) – The man who shot a security guard at the Family Research Council (FRC) on Wednesday was “given a license” to do so because of groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) that have labeled the FRC a “hate group,” said FRC President Tony Perkins. The conservative Christian group is posted on a “Hate Map” on the SPLC’s Web site.

There are 13 groups listed for the District of Columbia on the “Hate Map,” and the Family Research Council is among them, according to the SPLC, because of its support for traditional marriage and Christian morality.

On Wednesday, Aug. 15, a gunman, allegedly 28-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins of Herndon, Va., entered the lobby of the Family Research Council and shot the security guard.  According to the FBI, Corkins had a 9mm handgun, two magazines of ammunition, 50 rounds of additional ammo and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his backpack and, according a witness, “stated words to the effect of ‘I don’t like your politics.’”

(Chick-fil-A was recently castigated by homosexual activists and some Democratic lawmakers because its CEO expressed his support for marriage between one man and one woman.)

At a press conference on Thursday outside the FRC, President Perkins said, “I want to express my appreciation to the groups and organizations that we do not agree with on many public policy issues who have also expressed their outrage at what took place here yesterday — for that I appreciate it, I appreciate them making those statements.”

“But I would ask them to go a step further and to join us in calling for an end to the reckless rhetoric that I believe led to yesterday’s incident that took place right behind me,” he said.

“And that does bring me to my final point,” said Perkins.  “Let me be clear, that Floyd Corkins was responsible for firing the shot yesterday that wounded one of our colleagues and our friend Leo Johnson.  But Corkins was given a license to shoot an unarmed man by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center that have been reckless in labeling organizations hate groups because they disagree with them on public policy.”

“And I believe the Southern Poverty Law Center should be held accountable for their reckless use of terminology that is leading to the intimidation and what the FBI here has categorized as an act of domestic terrorism,” he said.  “There’s no room for that in a society such as ours that works through differences that we have on issues in public policy through a peaceful means.”

The suspect, Floyd Corkins, had been volunteering for the last six months at The DC Center for the LGBT Community. The DC Center released astatement condemning the violence, which was signed by 40 other local and national LGBT groups.

“We were saddened to hear news of the shooting this morning at the offices of the Family Research Council,” read the statement.  “Our hearts go out to the shooting victim, his family, and his co-workers.”

During the press conference outside of the FRC building, Perkins said designating organizations as “hate groups” for disagreeing with public policy positions is harmful.

“It marginalizes individuals and organizations, letting people feel free to go and do bodily harm to innocent people who are simply working and representing folks all across this country,” he said.

Perkins dismissed the notion that the suspect was just an “unhinged individual” when asked by reporters.

“How many unhinged individuals walk around with 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches and 50 rounds of ammunition?” he said.

CNSNews.com left messages by telephone with the Southern Poverty Law Center seeking an interview to discuss the Family Research Council and its designation on the SPLC’s “Hate Map,” but the SPLC did not respond before this story was posted.
