Southern Poverty Law Center Jumps the Shark….

..and is now in Low Earth Orbit.

Berger explains why, specifically, the SPLC hugely inflates their headline numbers with a bizarre counting system. Only on the site where you find the raw data, and in none of their media releases, do they make it clear that the “1,007 hate groups” number counts individual chapters of national or regional groups. For instance, “the American Nazi Party is listed six times, and the Council of Conservative Citizens is listed 37 times. There are many more. When you filter the list for organizations with identical names, the list of 1,007 becomes a list of 358.”
–“The SPLC and Slant“: Patrick Brennan, NRO.com, (h/t: Instapundit)

It’s a “forever war” with these people. If they admit that hate is on the run, they lose money. If they admit that no one takes the KKK seriously, they lose a reason to exist.

In 1958, a black man could be arrested for sitting in the wrong seat, in 2008 we elected a black man president.

But you wouldn’t know it from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
