Barry Soetoro – Domestic Terrorist Hit List – S P L C

SPLC Publishes Patriot Hit List
By Chuck Baldwin

This column is temporarily archived at:

In a report on its web site dated April 2010, entitled "Meet The Patriots,"
the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) profiled "36 individuals at the heart
of the resurgent [patriot] movement." (In reading the list, I counted only
35 "patriots" and 5 "enablers" for a total of 40. I'm not really sure how
the SPLC came up with "36." Perhaps their ability to count is commensurate
with their ability to appreciate patriotism and liberty.) The SPLC (founded
by Morris Dees) sees itself as America's guardian against "right wing
militias" and loves to label conservatives and libertarians that it doesn't
like as "extremists." The SPLC is one of the most ultra-liberal
organizations in the country and should be dismissed as a group of paranoid
leftists, not worthy of thought or mention.

The sad truth is, however, our federal government has chosen to exalt the
SPLC to the position of being its "go to" source for information regarding
"potential domestic terrorists" and similar characterizations. As a result,
the information and reports disseminated by SPLC wind up in police reports
and bulletins all over the United States. As an example, the SPLC had its
fingerprints all over the infamous MIAC report. One could even question
whether the SPLC is merely a front organization for Big Brother.

Therefore, it is highly likely that the report negatively profiling 40
American patriots will find its way into Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) fusion centers and be distributed to police agencies all across the
country. So, should the 40 people who find themselves targeted by SPLC
expect some kind of government/police attention? Are we really that close to
Nazi-style persecution in America? If the SPLC has its way, the answer seems
to be a definite yes.

I remind readers that in the book, Nazi Justiz: Law of the Holocaust (page
3), there were five steps to Hitler's plans for the destruction of European
Jews. Step 1: Identification/registration of the targeted group as a public
menace. Step 2: Ostracism of the targeted persons. Step 3: property
confiscation. Step 4: Concentration of members into geographical locations.
Step 5: Annihilation. In this latest report, SPLC seems quite willing to
accomplish steps 1 and 2.

Here are the 40 names that are targeted in the SPLC report (and guess who is
listed at the very top? Yours truly):

The SPLC, no doubt, sees each person on the above list as being a leader of
the "radical right," a "conspiracist," and "antigovernment." But understand,
the SPLC makes its living off of big-government, leftist ideology. To say it
is a shill for Big Government Liberalism is an understatement. The SPLC is
so radical it makes the ACLU look conservative!

Again, this SPLC report would not even merit a mention (much less an entire
column) except for the fact that the SPLC has become a source of information
fuelling anti-freedom hysteria for countless bureaucrats at the DHS. Add
this to the previously exposed MIAC and DHS reports, and the Army major's
report blaming "millennialist" Christians for much of the ills of the world,
and a disturbing trend is quickly developing: so-called right-wing ANYTHING
is being targeted and demonized as a "public menace."

But the lists that you and I are not seeing are even more disturbing.

Joel Skousen quotes (Radar Magazine's) Christopher Ketcham's The Last
Roundup as asking if the federal government is "compiling a secret enemies
list of citizens who could face detention?" He goes on to say, "A number of
former government employees and intelligence sources with independent
knowledge of domestic surveillance operations claim the program that caused
the flap between [former assistant attorney general under John Ashcroft,
James] Comey and the White House was related to a database of Americans who
might be considered potential threats in the event of a national emergency.
Sources familiar with the program say that the government's data gathering
has been overzealous and probably conducted in violation of federal law and
the protection from unreasonable search and seizure guaranteed by the Fourth

"A veteran CIA intelligence analyst who maintains active high-level
clearances and serves as an advisor to the Department of Defense in the
field of emerging technology tells Radar that during the 2004 hospital room
drama [between former Chief of Staff Andrew Card and Attorney General
Ashcroft, in an attempt by Card to coerce a very ill Ashcroft to authorize
President Bush's secretive domestic spying programs as his assistant–and
acting–attorney general had refused to do so], James Comey expressed
concern over how this secret database was being used 'to accumulate
otherwise private data on non-targeted U.S. citizens for use at a future

The report further states, "According to a senior government official who
served with high-level security clearances in five administrations, 'There
exists a database of Americans, who, often for the slightest and most
trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic,
might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived
"enemies of the state" almost instantaneously.'" At this point, Skousen
noted, "And that is precisely why the census bureau took a GPS coordinate on
every front door in America, secretly linking this to dissidents and their
known addresses."

This database of Americans who are perceived to be potential "enemies of the
state" goes by the code name "Main Core." And according to the report, "One
knowledgeable source claims that 8 million Americans are now listed in Main
Core as potentially suspect. In the event of a national emergency, these
people could be subject to everything from heightened surveillance and
tracking to direct questioning and possibly even detention.

"Officials at the Department of Homeland Security begin actively
scrutinizing people who–for a tremendously broad set of reasons–have been
flagged in Main Core as potential domestic threats [sound familiar?]. Some
of these individuals might receive a letter or a phone call, others a
request to register with local authorities. Still others might hear a knock
on the door and find police or armed soldiers outside. In some instances,
the authorities might just ask a few questions. Other suspects might be
arrested and escorted to federal holding facilities, where they could be
detained without counsel until the state of emergency is no longer in

The report also noted that former Assistant Attorney General James Comey
"had concluded that the use of that 'Main Core' database compromised the
legality of the overall NSA domestic surveillance project. 'If Main Core
does exist,' says Philip Giraldi, a former CIA counterterrorism officer and
an outspoken critic of the agency, 'the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) is its likely home. If a master list is being compiled, it would have
to be in a place where there are no legal issues–the CIA and FBI would be
restricted by oversight and accountability laws–so I suspect it is at DHS,
which as far as I know operates with no such restraints.' Giraldi notes that
DHS already maintains a central list of suspected terrorists and has been
freely adding people who pose no reasonable threat to domestic security."

So, is there a secret list of 8 million "unfriendly" Americans kept by DHS
(if there is, dear reader, you are probably on it!)? Does anyone reading
this column doubt that our federal government is more than willing and
capable of doing such a thing? All of us are quite familiar with the
government's "no fly" or "flagged" airline passenger list. I can personally
attest to the authenticity of this list, as airport officials in San
Antonio, Texas, told me that I'm on it. I also made it to the "list of
three" that were named in the MIAC report (the other two were Ron Paul and
Bob Barr). And now I am on the SPLC list of "patriots" (not a compliment in
the SPLC lexicon). Wow! I never realize how popular I was! (With the
exception of Ron Paul, I'm probably on more lists than anyone in America.)

Who would ever have thought that the day would come in America when to speak
up for freedom, constitutional government, and the principles expressed by
our Founding Fathers would land one on a government watch list? Well, that
day is here, my friend! No doubt, the major media and federal government–in
order to further ostracize patriotic, God-fearing Americans–will use the
SPLC patriot hit list as a vehicle to carry our country further down the
road of oppression.

But what the radical left fearmongers at the Southern Poverty Law Center
fail to realize is that the more they try to marginalize and ostracize
American patriots such as you and me, the more they isolate themselves from
America's future, because millions and millions of hard-working,
God-fearing, liberty-loving Americans are not going to sit back and let
Morris Dees and his cabal of Big Government elitists destroy the principles
of freedom in our land.

So, people such as Morris Dees can put us on as many lists as they like; we
will never let liberty die! And the more they try to demonize us, the more
people will want to join with us. You see, freedom burns deep and strong in
the hearts of real Americans. And that's something the SPLC can't
extinguish–no matter how many lists it makes!
