Exclusive: Conservatives launch war on Southern Poverty Law Center, promotes 'terrorism'



Over three dozen conservative representatives wrote in a letter to GuideStar, "The ‘hate group' list is nothing more than a political weapon targeting people it deems to be its political enemies." Among the signers: Eagle Forum, FRC, National Organization for Marriage, former Reagan Attorney General Edwin Meese, Heritage Foundation, Immigration Reform Law Institute, and Judicial Watch.

The FRC memo directed supports to a video on the effort and listed several suggested tweets to use and a hashtag for the effort, #SPLCexposed:

"Tune in on July 16th for D. James Kennedy Ministries' special exposing the SPLC (full show available online here beginning July 14th), then join us on July 17th for a social media campaign using the hashtag #SPLCexposed on Twitter and Facebook," it said.

The SPLC had no immediate response.

One of the suggested tweets references the FRC shooter Floyd Corkins:

"@SPLCenter has been linked in federal court to convicted domestic terrorist Floyd Corkins. http://tws.io/2sYsPEx #SPLCexposed"

Another noted the FBI's severing of ties to SPLC over domestic terror:

"There's a reason the FBI distanced themselves w/ @splcenter. They're discredited & linked to terrorism: http://ow.ly/Miilg #SPLCexposed"
