    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) just disgraced itself further by placing Dr. Ben Carson on its extremist watch list.

    The SPLC is a self-styled watchdog group for “hate and extremism,” but SPLC itself manufactures hate – check out this detailed report on its activities, including inspiring a deranged lunatic to shoot up the Family Research Council’s headquarters.

    Now they’ve added an “Extremist Files” profile for Dr. Ben Carson for his “anti-LGBT ideology,” but their examples are mostly a credit to him rather than damning evidence of extremism:

    In His Own Words:
    “Marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA [North American Man/Boy Association, a group advocating pedophilia], be they people who believe in bestiality—it doesn’t matter what they are, they don’t get to change the definition.”

    —Interview on Fox News’ “Hannity,” March 26, 2013

    f we can redefine marriage as between two men or two women or any other way based on social pressures as opposed to between a man and a woman, we will continue to redefine it in any way that we wish, which is a slippery slope with a disastrous ending, as witnessed in the dramatic fall of the Roman Empire.”

    The SPLC has always been a communist front group. The founder is a perv to boot.

    Don't think I would stick him on any list because I don't actually think he's important enough to put on a watch list. He has no chance of winning anything really.

    Has Carson cleared up the lying, plagiarizing thing yet or is that just going to be an unfortunate mistake, something in the past, he's now looking to move forward, doesn't want to talk about the past? Just curious!
