Tony Perkins Has The SPLC Super-Sadz As Justice Department Works With Them On Domestic Terrorism

Remember how Tony Perkins and the rest of Teabagistan last year gleefully declared that the FBI had cut its ties to the SPLC even thought that totally wasn’t true? Well, the Justice Department has launched a new domestic terrorism campaign in conjunction with the SPLC and Perkins is EVER so pissed. Via World Net Daily:

The Obama Justice Department has stooped to a new low by teaming up with an organization of dubious credibility – the Southern Poverty Law Center – to combat domestic terrorism, says the leader of a Christian group that has felt the sting of the “civil rights” organization’s political gamesmanship. As WND reported, the announcement was made Wednesday by Assistant Attorney General John Carlin that the DOJ was creating a new division that would focus on investigating “extremists” of the home-grown variety. Carlin cited a study by a George Soros-funded foundation saying “right wing” extremism was more of a danger to America than Islamic terrorists and he applauded the SPLC’s role in helping the government track these “extremist” groups.

Perkins claims to be dumbfounded:

“Is he (Carlin) serious? Were it not for an ordinary man showing extraordinary courage, an activist bent on massacring an office of innocent people might have succeeded in gunning down dozens of people at FRC,” Perkins wrote. “As prosecutors pointed out, this was no ordinary attack — but an act spurred on by the SPLC’s reckless ‘hate’ labeling. Now we’re supposed to believe that this same organization, the one that inspired Floyd Corkins to walk into our building and shoot Leo Johnson, is a legitimate ally in the fight against domestic terrorism? A trusted source in identifying the homegrown threats?”

Ah, satisfying.
