Attacker admits plans for violence facilitated by organization's 'hate' listings
A key leader of the Washington-based Family Research Council, the pro-family organization attacked by gay terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins, II, last year, says he is asking the government to stop utilizing the organization that likely influenced Corkins decision to attack innocent workers at FRCs Washington office.
Retired Lt. Gen. William G. Jerry Boykin, the executive vice president of FRC and also a member of the board of WND.com, also is asking the U.S. news media to stop citing reports, statements and claims from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which he said legitimizes the organization.
The reason is that Corkins, who has pleaded guilty to a charge of domestic terrorism, confirmed to the FBI that he obtained information about the FRC from the hate group listing posted online by the SPLC, and thats how he picked his target.
According to the governments sentencing memorandum in the case against Corkins, who is now expected to be sentenced sometime in June, the mass killing of innocent civilians was averted narrowly by the heroic intervening actions of Leonardo Johnson, a building manager/security guard who was seriously injured as a result.
It happened when Corkins came to the FRC office intending to shoot everyone he could, but was stopped by Johnson, who wrestled Corkins into submission even though he had been shot in the arm.
See Jihad in America: The Grand Deception, which reveals the threat that is hidden in plain sight for Americans.
Among the counts to which Corkins has pleaded guilty is an Act of [Domestic] Terrorism while Armed.
During an FBI interview of Corkins after he was taken into custody, an agent asked Corkins, What was your intention Youre a political activist you said?
Corkins responded: Yeah,

The SPLC is behind the U.S. Army taking the position that conservative Christians, Catholics, etc. are potential terrorists and members of hate groups. The Family Research Council was also put on SPLC’s list.
Someone should sue for liability.
If you you took the oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, the federal government now considers you to be an enemy of the state. In a more simple time, that would be called cannon fodder.
There was a time here some PC freepers would not tolerate negativity and Dees and Potkin
Furthermore that Morris Dees is one sick fellow if one were to look into the file on his divorce proceedings. Disgusting.
Actually, that is the Southern Preposterous Lie Center. Let’s all keep their name straight.
So if he acted against a group condemned by the SPLC, did he really commit a crime? Or was he just a little bit overenthusiastic in implementing Obama Administration policy?
Do you mean the fact that Morris Dees having sex with his son’s wife?
/dripping with sarcasm
SPLC is a scam. It’s run exclusively by white men making $150,000-$400,000 year plus benefits. Apparently they don’t work very hard either - that is left to staff feeding lower down the food trough.
SPLC has declared Free Republic a “hate group”
So take that all you Nazi scum who hang out here.....
And the organization evidently has assets in excess of $250 million. There is evidently no “poverty” in the SPLC.
I went to FRC’s website to see what all of the hate was about.
What these guys do is collate peer-reviewed research and put it in a form that is easy for the general public to understand. For example, they would dig up clinical studies on the rates of infectious diseases in one lifestyle versus another lifestyle.
It winds up that their website is EXCELLENT and I would recommend that parents take a look at it, and then possibly show it to their kids, if they’re of the age where they’re starting to think of lifestyle choices - the data they have will scare the crap out of them, and rightfully so.
After seeing what they have, it’s understandable why they left is trying to shut them down.
Their game needs to be turned against them and victims of their lists need to sue them.
He simply didn't like FRC supporting family values. That's all. That was the reason he engaged in terrorism. No joke.
The left wing loons are cracking up. Every time there's a mass shooting or bombing, the perps are left wing and/or Jihadist that are registered democrats.
The democrats in Washington need to tone down the hateful rhetoric.
On the SPLC’s own definition of “hate group.” (Since there is no legal definition, they just made one up.)
“ a ‘hate group’ has nothing to do with criminality [or] potential for violence ” Rather, as Potok put it, “Its all about ideology.”
No crime, no violence, just “wrong thinking”.
All you need to know about the SPLC:
These five men, all linked with Occupy Wall Street, attempted to blow up a bridge as an overture to the wholesale destruction of Cleveland, Ohio, and in the name of anarchism. They also looked to blow up the Republican convention.
They were anarchists, he repeated.
He paused. Were not really set up to cover the extreme Left.
A class action suit that would empty their coffers sounds like justice.
The SPLC is the Anti-White KKK. They would love to lynch some Whitey....esp conservative ones
Where is the New York Times
Where are the breathless NBC liars?
Where’s CBS’s “60 Minutes’ of liberal propaganda fed to them by liberal PR firms?
For that matter - where is FoxNews?
And they've influence violence - check out this story to see how....
My local paper has not covered this story - they're not interested in how this young terrorist was influenced to commit a violent act by the SPLC:
The SPLC is often welcomed on news shows just like it a legitimate organization.
>>>Someone should sue for liability.<<<
You got that right. The left is constantly using the legal system to advance their agenda and destroy their enemies. Time to be proactive. It would be a delight to see the SPLC on the stand trying to defend their listing of the Family Research Council as a terrorist organization. Sue them for millions, and the stick the head on a pike at the outskirts of town to warn the next stupid bastard not to do it again. Metaphorically, of course.
Even if SPLC loses, it would cost them millions defending themselves.
Be nice to see lefty groups getting hammered by their own tactics.
Thanks for the ping.
The SPLC has long been a leftwing hate group that does its dirty work by lumping together conservative and even Christian groups in with criminal gangs.
That hasn’t stopped some Freepers from using SPLC smears to try to shut down immigration control discussions. When you see mainline immigration groups being accused of promoting eugenics then you know you have run across one of them.
Glenn Beck where are you ? you need to expose this leftist terrorist group (SPLC - Southern Poverty Law Center) for what it is, you got the bully pulpit now use it.
Well, well, well, another leftist showing a violent response and yet the Tea Party is still considered a hate group by the MSM.
Every time another leftist commits a violent act the only response from the commie supporters is Tim McVeigh.
Well at least Tim was responding to the government bar-b-que of women, children, and useless men in WACO and killings at Ruby Ridge so while his actions are to be condemned, they are understood as a poor response to an out of control government.
The left certainly has more bombers, killers on their side and some with very close ties to this abomination of an administration.
The Southern Poverty Law Center's people were behind the lie about the 'Vast Right Wing Conspiracy'. They made that up - then spread the information through police departments.. The SPLC worked in the shadows telling people things must be kept secret - stopping the light of day and the press from exposing their lies. If Hillary hadn't spilled the beans - the lies might have worked.
Turns out the press wouldn't have been a problem...
If a right wingers had walked into a Gay Rights Organization with the intent of killing a bunch of gays and stuffing fast food in their mouths, do you think the New York Times would cover it on the front page?
Bet on it. They would have pictures and retrospectives - the whole nine yards.
But when it's a crime - a hate crime - against conservatives - we hear crickets from the Washington Post, the New York Times, the LA Times, and Chicago Tribune.
The reason people don't trust the 'press' anymore is because the press has become untrustworthy.
