When the White House announces an initiative, you can be sure it’s going to be either inimical to the United States, unconstitutional—or both.
Asst. AG John Carlin’s announcement on October 14th, that the Justice Department is creating a new position of “Domestic Terrorism Counsel,” shows signs of both. Its purpose is to combat the “real and present threat” of domestic extremism, he said. He ominously cited, as causes for concern: “anti-government views, racism, bigotry, anarchy and other despicable beliefs”—which begs the question: Just who will select those showing cause for concern?
His declaration is more ominous because he implied that the DOJ would be relying upon the Southern Policy Legal Center (SPLC) for help in this new mission. In fact, the announcement was co-hosted by SPLC. This raises the concern that the SPLC will help select those suspected of “despicable beliefs.”
The problem is, SPLC thinks racism, bigotry and other despicable beliefs are practiced mainly by conservative groups and Christian organizations. The latter appear on its online “Hate Groups” list because of their expressed belief that homosexuality is sinful—though they have a clear constitutional right to that expression. Even the law firm that represented Kim Davis is on the list.
The SPLC lists individuals as well, on their Extremists list—almost exclusively heads of Christian groups and terrorism experts, like Frank Gaffney and Robert Spencer. Their Women Against Islam/The Dirty Dozen list includes women most rational people would call heroines, like Pamela Geller, author Ann Coulter, Brigitte Gabriel, Laura Ingraham, Mideast expert Clare Lopez; in short, people who dare to inform us of Islam’s penchant for shootings, stabbings, bombings and other strategies to impose shariah law’s tenets on the non-Islamic world.
