You
would think an organization with nearly $200 million
in the bank and a budget of close to $30 million
(according to its filings with the federal
government) could do something right.

But not
the

Southern Poverty Law Center
(SPLC).

On
August 21, commentator

Patrick Buchanan
quoted a few statistics from my
New Century Foundation study,

The Color of Crime
, in his syndicated
column posted

on his website
,

on VDARE.COM

and

elsewhere
.
He noted, for example, that blacks commit more

violent crime against whites
than against
blacks, and that they are seven times more likely
than other Americans to commit murder.

This is
just the sort of thing the SPLC doesn`t want you to
know. One of its writers, named Heidi Beirich, went
right to work, trying to keep anyone else from

quoting
The Color of Crime ever again.

Did she
try to prove that blacks do not commit more
violent crime against whites than blacks?

Or that
they are not more likely than other groups to
commit murder?

Of
course not; the facts, all from government sources,
can`t be refuted. Instead she screamed that the New
Century Foundation is "white supremacist,"
and that our publications and research are racist,
racist, racist, racist. (She can`t say that often
enough—she used it, on average, every 85th word.)

Just
how racist are we? Miss Beirich cites our
publication, American Renaissance: "A 2002
article, for instance, argued that blacks are
inherently pathological, suffering from a
`personality disorder of which the central feature
is lack of a moral sense.` “[

Buchanan Again Cites Racist Sources on Black Crime
,

August 22, 2007]

What
did American Renaissance actually say? The
complete sentence—written by

Prof. Richard Lynn
, emeritus of the University
of Ulster at Coleraine —was not about blacks at all:

"Psychopathic personality is a personality disorder
of which the central feature is lack of a moral
sense."
[Race
and Psychopathic Personality

|Racial differences
in “average personality,”
American
Renaissance
, July 2002].

Lynn
then pointed out that, in the 65 years since the
Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI)
has been in use, blacks have consistently scored
higher than whites on psychopathic personality,
while

Asians have scored lower.

These
are the scientific facts Miss Beirich twisted to
make it sound as if Prof. Lynn thinks all blacks are
"inherently pathological."

No
wonder her article included live Internet links to
other sources, but not to Prof. Lynn. She
wouldn`t want her readers to know what he really
said.

Even
more extraordinary was Miss Beirich`s attempt to
explain how The Color of Crime got things
wrong. An article in the SPLC`s very own
Intelligence Report,
she claimed, soundly
refuted it. But the article is seven years old. [
SPLCenter.org:
Coloring Crime,
Intelligence Report
Summer 2000] Our research was published in
2005—barely two years ago. Even with $30 million a
year you can`t refute studies that have not yet been
written.

(Miss
Beirich was referring to our earlier report, from
1999 [PDF],
which the SPLC tried to refute by asserting,
wrongly, that poverty was a more significant
correlation.)

Miss
Beirich went on with the SPLC`s

usual hash
of

distortion
,

smear
, and

guilt-by-association
—throwing in "racist"
every 85 words—as she tried to scare Mr. Buchanan
away from facts she doesn`t want Americans to hear.

That
won`t work, of course, because

Mr. Buchanan cares about the truth
, not about
the SPLC`s dishonest yapping.

Miss Beirich clearly hopes that others may not be
made of the same stuff as Mr. Buchanan—that they
will
be scared off at the possibility she might
blast them with her favorite word.

For that is the SPLC`s mission: suppress facts,

shout down opponents,
stamp out dissent,
demonize anyone who disagrees.

Stalin was good at this. So was Mao.

It`s what people do when they have neither facts,
morals nor—despite the Intelligence Report`s
title…intelligence.
