SPLC accused of encouraging violence against women opposed to Sharia law
June 19, 2015 9:43 PM MST

Pamela Geller, one of 12 women profiled by the SPLC for being opposed to Sharia law.

As part of its Summer 2015 issue of what it calls an “Intelligence Report,” the Southern Poverty Law Center provided profiles of a dozen women it said “are at the core of the anti-Muslim radical right.” The report did not sit too well with Pamela Geller, head of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, the group that sponsored a “Draw Mohammed” contest in Garland, Texas. On Thursday, Geller accused the SPLC of “encouraging” Islamic terrorists to come after her and the other women it profiled.

“With three jihadis dead and two jihadis jailed in attempts to kill me, this is just encouraging more jihadis to come after me — and the other women this Communist hate group names,” she wrote. “At a time when jihad killers are moving actively against those whom they hate in the U.S., this is a quite literal hit list.”

Geller, however, wasn’t finished, and said the SPLC “ought to be shut down and prosecuted for incitement” if any of the women profiled are attacked or killed by terrorists. But, she added, that’s unlikely to happen in “Obama’s America.”

“Instead,” she added, “Obama will probably send the SPLC a letter of commendation the week after the killing, as he did with the Oklahoma mosque after a Muslim beheaded one of his coworkers there.” According to the SPLC, Geller is “the country’s most flamboyant and visible Muslim-basher.” Geller, however, has maintained that she is not opposed to Muslims, only those who engage in jihad and want Sharia law in the United States.

The SPLC also listed conservative radio talk-show host Laura Ingram for agreeing with the statement that “hundreds of millions of Muslims” were delighted with the killing of 12 people at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro made the SPLC’s list, in part, for saying that Muslims “have conquered us through immigration. They have conquered us through interfaith dialogue.”

“In 2014,” the SPLC added, “she offered her solution to ISIS: ‘Bomb them! Bomb them! Keep bombing them, bomb them again and again.’” The SPLC, however, did not provide the entire context of her statement, which can be seen on YouTube.

Conservative columnist and best-selling author Ann Coulter, a woman the SPLC said hates “the declining percentage of white people in America, and anything that remotely smacks of liberalism,” made the “hit list.” According to the SPLC, Coulter “reserves a special animus for Muslims.”

“In 2001, three days after Al Qaeda’s World Trade Center attacks, she wrote that ‘[w]e should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity,'” the SPLC profile said. “The same month, she said, “Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims — at least all terrorists capable of assembling a murderous plot against America.”

Among those listed by the SPLC are: Cathie Adams, former chairwoman of the Texas Republican Party and current leader of the Texas chapter of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, blogger Ann Barnhardt, ACT! for America founder Brigitte Gabriel and retired New York police officer Cathy Hinners. The SPLC also included Clare Lopez, a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy, radio talk show host Sandy Rios, attorney, columnist and blogger Debbie Schlussel and syndicated columnist Diana West.

Geller’s warning is not without merit. In 2013, we reported that LGBT volunteer Floyd Lee Corkins II admitted using the SPLC’s so-called “hate map” when he attacked the Washington, D.C. office of the Christian Family Research Council with the goal of murdering as many people as he could. According to the SPLC, the FRC and other mainstream Christian organizations are “hate groups” for opposing the homosexual agenda.

The SPLC has also worked closely with the Obama Department of Justice. Information gleaned from the SPLC was integrated in controversial training provided to members of an Army Reserve unit in Pennsylvania. According to that training, Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism were examples of religious extremism, and were compared to KKK, al Qaeda and Hamas. The SPLC’s Mark Potok, however, said his group was not the source of the information.

According to the SPLC, the quarterly “Intelligence Report” is intended to provide “comprehensive updates to law enforcement agencies, the media and the general public.” The group also claims that it is “the nation’s preeminent periodical monitoring the radical right” in the United States.
