Soviet Poverty Law Center (Southern Poverty Law Center or SPLC nickname)

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a civil rights organization that some conservatives and libertarians have called a far-left extremist group. The SPLC nickname “Soviet Poverty Law Center” was used in a July 2012 tweet and was popularized by the April 2013 article, “Krugman and the Soviet Poverty Law Center,” by Tom DiLorenzo on LewRockwell.com.
“Soviet Poverty Lie Center” is a similar nickname. The Daily Paul listed some other SPLC nicknames in June 2011.
Wikipedia: Southern Poverty Law Center
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is an American nonprofit civil rights organization noted for its legal victories against white supremacist groups; its legal representation for victims of hate groups; its monitoring of alleged hate groups, militias and extremist organizations; and its educational programs that promote tolerance. The SPLC classifies as hate groups organizations that it considers to denigrate or assault entire groups of people, typically for attributes that are beyond their control.
In 1971, Morris Dees and Joseph J. Levin Jr. founded the SPLC as a civil rights law firm based in Montgomery, Alabama.

Paul Krugman Proves Himself To Be a Fraud (Again)
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
A couple of years ago when I appeared as one of Ron Paul’s witnesses (the first one, actually) during his House of Representatives hearings on the Fed, the Democrats got the biggest leftist on the committee to smear, libel, and slander me by repeating the smears, libels, and slanders about me (and virtually all other libertarians and conservatives) by the left-wing hate group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Paul Krugman And The Soviet Poverty “Law” Center
They seem to be like two rotten peas in the same rotten pod.

Bombing in Boston: The Southern Paranoia Law Center Hopes It Was…
Posted by Bill Anderson on April 15, 2013 03:27 PM
I AM sure, however, that the people at the Southern Paranoia Law Center (SPLC) are hoping, HOPING! that the perpetrators were “white supremacists” so that the SPLC immediately can send out fund-raising letters to turn this sad event into a cash cow. (And I am sure that Paul Krugman would love to be able to blame the Tea Party or maybe even Ron Paul supporters.)

Bill, you are correct that as of now no one has any idea who is responsible for the horrendous event today in Boston.  But both CNN and Esquire magazine long ago went on record blaming “right-wing extremists” for the bombing.  They of course are touting the knee-jerk line of the Soviet Policy Law Center whenever something like this happens.
