    CNN Guest: 'Radical Right' More of a Threat than Radical Islam

    March 07, 2011

    http://nation.foxnews.com/cnn/2011/0...-radical-islam

    Mark Potok of the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center claimed on Monday's Newsroom on CNN that radical Islam wasn't "our biggest domestic terror threat," that instead, "that pretty clearly comes from the radical right in this country." Anchor Suzanne Malveaux touted Potok as "expert on extremism" from "one of the most highly regarded non-governmental operations that are monitoring hate groups."

    Malveaux brought on the SPLC spokesman at the bottom of the 12 noon Eastern hour to discuss the upcoming hearings by the House Homeland Security Committee on the radicalization of American Muslims. The anchor first asked him, "From your study of tracking radical groups, potentially hate groups, what do you think of this hearing? Is al Qaeda radicalizing Muslims? Is that our biggest homegrown terrorism threat right now?"

    Potok replied with his "radical right" claim, and went on to criticize the chairman of the House committee, Rep. Peter King
    According to government's own numbers, over half a MILLION people are dead, just in the US alone, because of a man made virus designed to be even more deadly than what would be found in nature, released, possibly on purpose, from a Chinese lab, a virus that that was created from funding and prior research given to the Chinese scientists by our own government because we, in fit of sanity, pulled the plug on funding here.

    Body count of "Muslim extremists" =

    Body count of "Right-wing extremists" =

    So, how is that again, SPLC?
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    The only "terrorists" I'm concerned about are mostly concentrated in a 50 mile circle of swamps on the Potomac river.

    It sounds like he's talking about Peter King - in which case most RPF members would agree with him.

    Yes, he went on to criticize King.

    But the right wing terror threat that Potok is always talking about is you, BT.

    How so?

    If we follow the official line, then OKC and a few people here and there are still less than 300 deaths.

    Take the other hand, and you end up with over 3000 in less than 10 years, or a greater than 10 to 1 ratio toward Islamic extremists, unless the SPLC are 9/11 truthers .....

    Patriots don't kill innocent women and children. I still don't know what to classify McVeigh as, or even to believe that he and Nichols were the alleged masterminds.

    You're both using logic, the thread is about TV.

    Hear, hear! Groups like the SPLC, and the entire Federal National Security apparatus make their wages whipping the American people into a frenzy of unreasoning fear. These groups are the main users of fear to obtain political ends in this country - the very definition of terrorism.

    Unless you have evidence he did not do it, you classify him as a terrorist. What was done there was outrageous and despicable.

    Yea, I'm the same way. There is simply too much that doesn't add up vis-a-vis OKC and McVeigh/Nichols. I have no illusions that the Feds wouldn't have withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense team and the jury.

    I wouldn't consider him to be "radical right".

    OKC was a government run Op.
    McVeigh was a government soldier, with NO ties to any Patriot group.
    He was run off from several.
    And he was only a bit player. the designated decoy/patsy.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    These are the same people who basically called th Oath Keepers a hate group. It's getting very hard to take them seriously anymore. SPLC has very little to do with the South, poverty, or even anti-racism and everything to do with expansion of federal powers.
