    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a non-profit progressive civil rights watchdog organization, was in the news again last week when its quarterly “Intelligence Report” warned that membership in hate groups was see rise. But a tendency to exclude certain groups from its outspoken criticism has many accusing the SPLC of having serious double standards.

    “For a second year in a row, the radical right in America expanded explosively in 2010, driven by resentment over the changing racial demographics of the country, frustration over the government’s handling of the economy, and the mainstreaming of conspiracy theories and other demonizing propaganda aimed at various minorities,” SPLC claims. On a list of over 1,000 organizations labeled “hate groups,“ 17 ”anti-gay” are singled out, the majority of which being Christian and conservative in nature.

    According to SPLC, an anti-gay hate group is one which states homosexuality is corrupting society and defames the gay community by promoting information the SPLC considers to be unfounded. In this light, the SPLC treats groups such as the Family Research Council (FRC), a Washington-based conservative think tank that advocates social conservatism, in the same way it treats groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

    But Stephen Schwartz, executive director for the Center for Islamic Pluralism, says the SPLC’s failure to include Muslim groups on the report exposes its double standard.

    “The Southern Poverty Law Center has adopted the attitude that Muslims are only victims of hate,” Schwartz told the Daily Caller. “They’ve adopted a paradigm that groups can be divided between victims and haters. There are Muslim hate groups in the United States. There’s no question about that. [The SPLC is] not going to address the fact that there are Muslim radicals, Muslim extremists, in the United States.”
