Tom DeWeese On The SPLC
[Note from Elias Alias, editor: Oath Keepers has pointed out for years that the SPLC sells profiles on Americans to the U.S. government, works with the Department of Homeland Security, targets average American citizens for daring to dissent against various governmental policies, and trains police departments, all at the same time it hammers Oath Keepers and other Constitutionalist individuals and organizations. In 2011 I published a large, five-piece article called “An Empire Strikes Home” which featured two serious pages on the information which Tom DeWeese has just published at News With Views. I can verify that what Mr. DeWeese has published is true enough, and he’s written it up nicely, so I want to share it with our readers here. This constitutes a penetrating look into the MindWar in which we at Oath Keepers find ourselves involved.]
SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER AND THE DEPT. OF HOMELAND SECURITY

February 14, 2015
[Author’s Note: Last year Dr. Ben Carson upset Barrack Obama by speaking out against Obamacare during a public meeting in which Obama was also present. It caused shock waves and immediately catapulted Dr. Carson into the public eye and many now promote him as a possible presidential candidate in 2016. Yet, for this act, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has now placed Dr. Carson on its “Extremist” watch file. That’s what every American is faced with if they dare speak out against the radical Progressive agenda.
A while back I was asked to address the Congressional Tea Party Caucus on Capital Hill concerning the threat to Conservatives by the Southern Poverty law Center. This past year the SPLC issued yet another attack against me and those fighting Agenda 21, calling us a radical fringe element. And still, the SPLC has its contracts with the Department of Homeland Security. That’s why I believe the SPLC is a danger to freedom and why I’m renewing my call for the new Republican led congress to seriously investigate this dangerous anti-free speech hate group. Here was my testimony. TD]
Briefing to the Tea Party Caucus of the US House of Representatives
My name is Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, and according to the Southern Poverty Law Center I am a right wing extremist, a racist and a potentially violent terrorist.
In March, 2010, SPLC issued a report entitled “Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism,” in which groups opposed to issues like the Obama health care plan and illegal immigration were lumped with white supremacist groups like the National Socialist Movement and Skin Heads.
In August, 2010 SPLC launched an attack against my organization and our national conference, The Freedom Action Conference, held at Valley Forge, PA, and featured such speakers as best selling author Tom Woods, former presidential candidate Michael Badnarik, Sheriff Richard Mack, several respected state legislators, and many more well known spokesmen.
The title of the SPLC attack against me read, “Patriot Rhetoric Becomes Increasingly Violent,” and said we were “united by rage” at the federal government. Not one speaker at our conference advocated violence or lawlessness of any kind. Yet we were labeled as dangerous and potentially violent terrorists.
Annually SPLC puts out a list of what it calls “hate” groups and individuals it deems dangerous to the nation. That list is almost exclusively respected pro-Constitution spokesmen.
Now why do I care what this private organization, with its own political agenda, says about me?
Because the Southern Poverty Law Center has direct ties to the Department of Homeland Security, helping to write official DHS policy that may affect my life, my freedom, my ability to travel and my ability to speak out.
