    Of course OWS is NOT on the list but the Tea Party is???

    This is how progressives use the media to keep their brainwashed minions in line.

    I suppose if you are opposed to progressive politics you're a "hate group" but if you use violence and intimidation to promote progressive politics you're not - you're a comrade.

    The SPLC didn't say anything about the "tea parties". The article you linked is about the Patriot/militia movement.

    Yes the fucking did - they released a fucking list dummy...

    An extremely partisan list - a list which that the violent OWS movement didn't even make.

    Apparently today those who embrace the constitution, Bill of Rights and classical liberalism are all extremist wackos to the left.

    The real hate groups are those who embrace progressive ideas and "social justice." You're all tyrants and hate mongers who use "by any means necessary" to achieve your goals..

    yep. nicky's kind of a liar... the fact that he's not very good at it is simply a function of his limited IQ

    :lol:

    Once again the progressive idiot speaks..

    Go read their list dummy - included is THE TEA PARTY in which the SPLC calls a "militia" or "patriot group"..

    This is what you get when you type "tea party" into the SPLC web site.

    Active

    They're all considered "radical hate groups" by the SPLC..

    The only mention of "tea party" on your list is for the following organizations:

    Southeast Valley Tea Party Patriots
    Berks County Tea Party

    Do those organizations represent all the "tea parties"?

    Wow... I scrolled all the way through it and didn't see one mention of the tea party on the list you provided.

    I also saw no mention of the words "radical hate groups". I saw the following:

    The Southern Poverty Law Center identified 1274 anti-government “Patriot” groups that were active in 2011. Of these groups, 334 were militias, marked with an asterisk, and the remainder includes “common-law” courts, publishers, ministries and citizens’ groups.

    Generally, Patriot groups define themselves as opposed to the “New World Order,” engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines. Listing here does not imply that the groups themselves advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist.

    The list was compiled from field reports, Patriot publications, the Internet, law enforcement sources and news reports. Groups are identified by the city, county or region where they are located
