On the rare occasion when someone from the Southern Prevarication Law Center (SPLC) actually tells the truth about something, it’s a cause for celebration.
In a Sept. 17th letter, SPLC President Richard Cohen referred to my organization –- the Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC) –- as a “white supremacist group.” Even a blind squirrel will find an acorn now and then.
I can’t speak for everyone in the CofCC, but most of us probably do harbor the quaint presumption that any civilization that split the atom, put a man on the Moon, and wrote the Constitution is demonstrably superior to those which have never invented the wheel or a written language. Call us crazy!
Unfortunately, Mr. Cohen immediately reverted to form, as he is inclined to do, by claiming that the CofCC website was “instrumental in radicalizing Dylann Roof, who massacred nine African-Americans in Charleston, SC.”
Anyone who bothers to read Dylann Roof’s “manifesto” –- rather than merely lie about it –- will quickly discover a very different source for the “radicalization” of this sad, misguided young man: Mr. Roof was incensed by the disparity between the manner in which the CofCC Website accurately reported black-on-white violent crime, in contrast to the demonstrably dishonest manner in which the Corrupt Leftist Media (particularly the SPLC) report the same incidents.
Indeed, for those who have observed that the race of violent offenders is never mentioned in news accounts — even when an accurate description might lead to the assailant’s arrest –- that happens to be a formal policy established by the so-called “Society of Professional Journalists.”
The dishonesty of Corrupt Leftist Media reportage is particularly evident in the context of inter-racial violent crime rates: Here, many in the general public have been indoctrinated with the false narrative that most inter-racial violent crime in America involves assaults against innocent black victims by white offenders.
In fact, in the United States, a black is 30 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white person than the reverse.
If even poor Dylann Roof could see through their lies and disinformation, the vast majority of more sophisticated Americans cannot be too far behind.
