I'm an on-again / off-again financial supporter of the SPLC's work.

I really appreciate their annual report of hate groups.

We, as freedom loving Americans, need to pay attention to these would be terrorists in our country as much as the terrorists abroad.

I did have, at one time, with the title of one of their programs, "Teaching Tolerance". I still believe that teaching tolerance seems like less of a goal than teaching acceptance, but have come to appreciate their point that tolerance is a necessary first step.

Are there more sites like this in each state? Could be a great way to expose the haters as they would do to their targets. Perhaps the golden rule is the racists dream! But the sheer joy of organizing a following never hurts the pocketbook either.

Can anyone confirm or deny a memory of mine? I seem to remember that the Southern Poverty Law Center was the group that Edwards went to work pro-bono between campaigns.

They really don't like their corporate buddies being held accountable for their actions.

Aryan Nations Offshoot Holds Rally
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Published on December 10, 2007


Hundreds attended a march and cultural diversity picnic in this Columbia River town to offset a much smaller rally staged by white supremacist recruiters. […]

On Sunday night, Police Chief Alex Perez and many of his officers kept a watchful eye as neo-Nazis and diversity supporters mingled peacefully at a three-hour white supremacist rally that drew about 30 skinheads and others affiliated with Aryan Nations. The event included reading poetry based on Viking mythology, punk music and a video about the "myth of 9/11." […]

There seems to be a lot of that going on lately.

I don't doubt Edwards is being given the cold shoulder because he represents to the powers that be, someone who just might take away their privileges. True or not, they wouldn't want to take a chance.
