SPLC: SIOA is a Hate Group

SPLC: SIOA is a Hate Group

Good news for Freedom lovers:

For quite sometime now we have been pointing out that the SPLC should add SIOA as an anti-Muslim hate group to its list of hate groups. Now they have done that and it is official, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are in the same league as the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis. Check out our piece: SIOA is an anti-Muslim Hate Group.

Southern Poverty Law Center lists anti-Islamic NYC blogger Pamela Geller, followers a hate group

Manhattan blogger Pamela Geller and her posse of anti-Islamic protesters have been branded a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Stop the Islamization of America was included in the civil rights organization’s annual roundup of extremist groups – a rogue’s gallery that includes everything from the Ku Klux Klan to white supremacists and Nazis.

Geller’s group was one of the most vocal opponents of the proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero.

The group was also behind ads that were placed on city buses urging Muslims to leave “the falsity of Islam.”

Geller, who runs a blog called Atlas Shrugs, dismissed the Law Center as an “uber left” group that has “failed to address the greatest threat to our national security.”

“My group is a human rights group,” she said. “And these people are taken seriously? This is the morally inverted state of the world.”

An Islamic organization that has been a frequent target of Geller’s barbs said it was not surprised she made the bigot list.

“One need not go beyond the name of this hate group, Stop the Islamization of America, to recognize the validity of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s designation,” said Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Bill Keller, a fire-and-brimstone Florida preacher who led a crusade against the Islamic Center in lower Manhattan, also made the Law Center’s list.

  1. “Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are in the same league as the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis.” Pretty strong words that are far from the truth. You want peace but you make statements like this? SPLC? Please, now I am convinced you all have lost your minds. LOL

  2. funny that you descripe someone as “fire-and-brimstone”. it’s almost as if you are making fun of him for his beliefs? but do not muslims along with christians and jews believe in the story of sodom and gomorrah? how’s it go “and god rained down fire and brimstone”? i see your headline is good news for freedom lovers, well god/allah is not “good news” for those of us who love freedom. muslim/christians/jews place many restrictions on freedom, while allowing for enslavement. go figure!

  3. The same way you would probably call a Jew living in Germany in 1940 a Naziphobe!

  4. @Tehzeeb,

    Projection much?
