    Mark Potok and the Southern Poverty Law Center warn in an article posted this week that news and information contrary to that disseminated by the establishment “hides deep, dark and destructive forces” endangering democracy.
    Potok and the SPLC attack alternative media head on.

    “One factor fertilizing such beliefs is the proliferation of alternative forms of media, from cable television and talk radio to social media and a seemingly endless number of websites. Almost any belief that a person has, no matter how far out or disconnected from the facts, has some kind of ‘news’ source to back it up,” Potok and Dan Terry write.

    The SPLC believes investigative journalism highlighting Common Core, military exercises and FEMA, Agenda 21, the North American Union, the financial manipulation of the elite and more—topics rarely if ever covered by the establishment media—pose a serious threat the very fabric of the nation.

    Alternative news and information at odds with the narrative spun by the elite and their propagandists in the corporate media “have consequences” and “wreck any chance for finding real solutions,” Potok argues.

    The first goal of every despotic regime is to silence the opposition. He's not even ashamed to admit it.

    My take is Mr. Potok and the SPLC live in an alternate universe and are intent in takeing over this one.

    They live in the collectivist universe and they're doing a pretty good job of taking over this one.
