Southern Poverty Law Center Operates as a Terrorist Support Arm in the Counter-State

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a U.S. based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that claims to “battle racial and social injustice” in America, yet SPLC’s words and actions reveal it is a terrorist support organization which actively works to accelerate the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States in their goal of overthrowing the United States government.

As Understanding the Threat (UTT) consistently reports, the war in which we are engaged consists of two major Movements acting as “Counter-States” to the United States of America;  The Global Islamic Movement and the hard-left Marxist/Communist/Socialist Movement.

This is a war primarily fought in the Information Battlespace where Propaganda, Influence Operations and Political Warfare are the key lines of operation.

Political Warfare is defined as the synchronization of non-violent and violent actions in support of the strategy.  The “victim/grievance creation” tactic used by the Islamic and hard-left Movements is Political Warfare at its finest.

Both the Islamic and hard-left Movements take a series of actions within their strategies to create the illusion of unjust wrongs, and then work within communities to redress these “wrongs.”  In all cases, the actions of redressing of “wrongs” advance the ultimate goal of destroying the underpinnings of our nation which will necessarily lead to the overthrow of the United States system of government.

One example in the Islamic Movement is when suit-wearing jihadis’ claims “terrorist attacks” create “backlash” against the Islamic community which necessitates law enforcement, churches, synagogues, political leaders, and others to take actions to “protect” muslims.

The violent jihadis thus work with the non-violent jihadis to create more room for the Islamic Movement to operate and gain ground.

Similarly, the hard-left Marxist/Communist/Socialist Movement create a straw-man by grossly exaggerating the racist problem in America and likening anyone who speaks truth about SPLC-protected groups as “racist” in order to destroy their ability to operate in the public arena.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s spokesman, Mark Potok, who just retired this year after 20 years with the SPLC, made clear why the SPLC created and keeps current their “Hate Map.”  At a 2008 speech in Vermont, the SPLC’s Potok explained:

“We see this political struggle…We’re not trying to change anybody’s mind.  We’re trying to wreck the groups.  We’re trying to destroy them…You are able to destroy these groups sometimes by the things you publish.  It is not so much that they will bring down the police or the federal agents on their head, it’s that you can sometimes so mortally embarrass these groups that they will be destroyed.”

At a speech in Michigan in 2007, the SPLC’s Spokesman Mark Potok said, “I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups (SPLC “Hate” groups), completely destroy them.”

It was reported this week by the Washington Freebeacon that the Southern Poverty Law Center’s business income tax return from 2015 and other records from 2014 show the SPLC has “financial interests” in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda, and has moved millions of dollars overseas into unregistered accounts.

These are strange transactions for a U.S.-based non-profit organization, unless it is actually a propaganda and political warfare arm of a hostile Counter-State actor.

The article also noted that SPLC leaders Richard Cohen and Morris Dees are paid nearly $330,000 per year for leading the SPLC, a non-profit organization.

None of this activity is shocking for those who know the Southern Poverty Law Center is an advocate for terrorist organizations like Hamas.  The SPLC regularly defends and advocates for the terrorist group Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Examples of SPLC defending/advocating for Hamas (dba CAIR) can be found herehere and here.

At no point has the Southern Poverty Law Center ever published the evidence regarding CAIR revealing it was created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) to be a node for Hamas in America.

In the war in which the U.S. is engaged domestically against the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States, the SPLC is engaged supporting both enemy entities in the propaganda and political warfare spheres, which makes them a hostile entity against the United States in this war.

The SPLC cannot feign ignorance.  SPLC’s President Richard Cohen sat next to UTT’s Vice President Chris Gaubatz in 2016 during Mr. Gaubatz’s testimony before Senator Ted Cruz’s Committee when Mr. Gaubatz detailed the threat of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas (dba CAIR).

Chris Gaubatz posed as a converted muslim and went undercover at Hamas headquarters in Washington, D.C. (Council on American Islamic Relations), removing over 12,000 documents from their offices and obtaining 300 hours of covert audio and video recordings.


SPLC’s Richard Cohen (left) listening to UTT’s Chris Gaubatz discuss the activities of Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

See Chris Gaubatz’s 7 minutes of testimony here.

The SPLC lies, deceives, and obfuscates the truth about the jihadi threat to America because it is participating in its advancement and the advancement of the Islamic and hard-left Counter-States.

The SPLC should be investigated for its irregular financial activities, its support for terrorists, and for participating in actions taken by hostile entities to overthrow the United States government.

Once again muslims adhering to sharia have killed innocent people in the West. This time we have 13 confirmed dead and over 100 injured in Barcelona, Spain. The leaders of Spain are responsible for these deaths along with the muslim jihadis who perpetrated these acts – which are lawful in Islam/Sharia.

The willing decision by Western leaders to regurgitate a counter-factual narrative about Islam being “peaceful” continues to give the enemies of liberty the ability to maneuver in our societies under the cover of being on equal footing with the civilized nations in Europe and America. Islam is not a civilized system. It is a totalitarian system ruled by sharia, which is barbaric and has no place in civil society. All Islamic Law mandates jihad until the world is under an Islamic State governed by sharia. Jihad is legally defined in sharia as “warfare against non-muslims.”

This is taught in Islamic schools at the first grade level and in the highest levels of Islamic jurisprudence. There is only one Islam and one sharia. Muslims who do not follow sharia do not constitute a different “version” of Islam.

The Islamic Movement in the West is now entered the leading edge of their final stage and they believe, based on how open they are in their objectives and by their actions, they are near to victory. UTT believes that without a significant amount of brute force to defeat this enemy, they will be correct.

A priest who officiated at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City was stabbed last Monday at 6:00 pm by a middle-aged man who went up to the altar and stabbed a blade into his neck. “This threat is HERE in USA also. Pastors, R U awake?”, stated Chris Gabautz Vice President of UTT.
According to the archdiocese, the attacker, named John Rene Rockschiil, of Muslim faith according to the Mexican media, was arrested after carrying out the attack with a knife.
After calling the police, a Condor unit from the capital’s public security secretariat arrived in the vicinity of the cathedral, located in the historic city center, to transfer the clergyman to San Miguel Chapultepec hospital.
Some of the testimonies of the parishioners who were in the cathedral emphasize that some of those present detained the 35-year-old man, in addition to providing medical care to the parish priest Miguel Angel Machorro, until the aid services arrived.

Is CNN Guilty of Material Support of Terrorism?

Could a reporter and/or media organization which intentionally provides a terrorist or terrorist organization air time to promote the terrorist’s agenda be charged as in violation of Title 18 of U.S. Code, Section 2339A, Material Support to Terrorists?
Mainstream media attacking those who speak truth about the threat of Islam in the United States is not new, nor is the media’s support for the terrorist group Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). However, when the media runs lengthy propaganda pieces for Hamas, regurgitating their talking points, while at the same time attacking officials who are sworn to defend U.S. citizens, do these actions constitute providing our enemies with material support in their war against the United States?

Last week CNN ran stories about Oklahoma State Representative John Bennett related to the “Muslim Day” at the Oklahoma State House. Why, you might ask, was there a “Muslim Day” at the Oklahoma State House? Because Hamas (dba CAIR) hosted one and no one stopped them.
In the CNN story, CNN correspondent Sara Ganim supports and defends Oklahoma’s Hamas leader Adam Soltani who slanders and defames state legislator John Bennett, and Ganim also defended Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

UTT: Real Truth About Real Threats

Last week’s UTT article entitled “Unfit for Duty” makes the point that two of the men professionally responsible to the President of the United States for speaking truthfully about national security threats – LtGen HR McMaster and Sebastian Gorka – are not doing so, specifically as it relates to the Islamic threat.

In response to the article, UTT received numerous communications from individuals, groups, and the media.  Many of the comments came from people with a clear understanding of the threat to the United States from the Global Islamic Movement, and the article was referenced and republished in several places including here and here.

Some, however, are still having a hard time understanding the true nature of the threat from Islam.  Many are simply not capable of believing such a grave threat exists in such a real and immediate way.  Some people are still ignorant about what Islam actually teaches because they have been subject to years of Islamic leaders and elected officials in the West telling them Islam is not part of the problem, but is part of the solution.  See the UTT video on this HERE.

Unfit for Duty

The new National Security Advisor – Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond McMaster – and the Counter-Terrorism advisor to the President of the United States – Sebastian Gorka – both unequivocally state the “terrorist” threat America faces has nothing to do with “true” Islam.

Both men are catastrophically wrong and, therefore, are leading America down a disastrous road towards defeat.

 

 

 

 

The New York TimesGuardian, and CNN all report Lt General McMaster told members of the National Security Council Thursday he felt “radical Islamic terrorism” was an unhelpful way to describe terrorism because becoming a terrorist is actually “un-Islamic” in the first place.

In a talk he gave at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in May 2016, LtGen McMaster said, “There is a cycle going on where groups like ISIL, who use this irreligious ideology, you know, this perverted interpretation of religion to justify violence, they depend on ignorance and the ability to recruit vulnerable segments of populations to foment hatred, then use that hatred to justify violence against innocents.”

This is incoherent and factually wrong.  LtGen McMaster wrote a book entitled “Dereliction of Duty.”  He may want to look in the mirror to see if he is doing the same thing in this war he accused President Johnson of doing in Vietnam. Continue Reading →

Oklahoma Beheading Case Another Example Judges and Attorneys Resistant to Linking Barbaric Behavior to Islam

How many Muslims who kill in the name of Allah have to profess their loyalty to the teachings of Islam in open court before judges and attorneys realize Islam mandates violence according to sharia (Islamic Law)?

On September 24, 2014, Alton Nolen, a Muslim, sliced the neck of Colleen Hufford – a former co-worker at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma – and then proceeded to saw her head off.

NOLEN

As the case has moved through the system, defense attorneys, prosecutors, and the judge in the case seem to have no clue about what Islam teaches and why it is pertinent to the case.

Nolen, whose appearance prior to his killing of Colleen Hufford was increasingly visibly sharia compliant, stated he follows the teaching of Islam – ie the Sharia.

At the hearing in Norman, Oklahoma last Friday, after the judge and attorneys made it clear his guilty plea would likely lead to a death sentence, Nolen stated:

Losing the War at the Local Level

Losing the War at the Local Level


The war in which we are engaged, and not engaged, against the jihadis here in the United States is a very different kind of war than most Americans are accustomed.  In this war, battles are lost at local town councils, in the media and school classrooms, and, sometimes, in state legislatures.

So it is with this week’s story out of Florida regarding Andy’s Law, named after Private Andy Long who was killed by a jihadi named Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad at an Army Recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2009.

France Strikes ISIS Targets in Syria But Not In Paris

After Friday night’s attack in Paris by Muslim jihadis, French military airstrikes hit ISIS targets in Syria, yet left the jihadi network inside of France  intact.

For approximately 40 minutes on Friday night, beginning at 9:20 PM local time in Paris, eight (8) Muslim jihadis conducted numerous assaults across the city.  Explosions at the Stadium of France detonated during a soccer game; and Gunmen fired on two restaurants at Le Petit Cambodge, a bar at Le Bonne Biere, a restaurant at Le Belle Equipe, and at a concert hall at Bataclan.

129 people were killed, and 352 were wounded.  Seven of the eight jihadis were killed, and one of them, Abdeslam Salah, is still at large.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.

France’s response was to strike ISIS targets outside of its own borders instead of destroying the massive and imminent Islamic threat inside of France.

There are at least forty-seven (47) mosques within a ten (10) mile radius of downtown Paris, which teach the jihad is an obligation for all Muslims until Sharia is the law of the land and the global Islamic State (Caliphate) is established.

The Union of Islamic Organizations in France (UIOF) has significant influence in France, and it’s voice is heard by French leaders.  The UIOF is a Muslim Brotherhood organizations whose stated objective is to destroy all un-Islamic governments and replace them with Islamic rule.

France, like many European nations, is being inundated with Muslims from numerous hostile countries (“refugees”) who openly state they have no loyalty to France nor it’s laws, and who support the implementation of Sharia and the establishment of the Caliphate.

French President Francois Hollande called the attacks in Paris “an act of war,” yet he has not called the slow invasion of his country by Muslims who seek to destroy France by all means possible an “act of war.”

The airstrikes by the French military reportedly hit a command post, a jihadi recruiting center, a munition depot, and a jihadi training camp in Syria.  The French military has not destroyed any such Islamic targets in France – yet those targets exist.

The German Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere, said “But I make the urgent plea, as interior minister and as a responsible politician of this country, that there shouldn’t be any hasty links made to the refugee debate.”  Germany’s leader Angela Merkel said she was “deeply shocked” by the attacks in Paris.

One has to ask what level of delusion these leaders live under.  The global Islamic Movement has made very clear the reason for doing what it is doing (fighting jihad to establish a caliphate under Sharia), and the authority with which they do it (Islamic Doctrine).  What exactly is shocking about what happened in Paris when viewed through the lens of Sharia?  Nothing.

A small glimmer of light may be seen in recent comments by Bernard Cazeneuve, the French Interior Minister, who has just called for the dissolution of “mosques where hate is preached” in France.

For anyone paying attention, this is still just the tip of the iceberg plowing over Europe.  The Europeans are giving the jihadis all the rope they (jihadis) need with which to hang them (Europeans).
