SPLC Stalinists Strike Again, Stupidly

August 21, commentator
Patrick Buchanan quoted a few statistics from my
New Century Foundation study,
The Color of Crime, in his syndicated
on his website,
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.
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.

violent crime against whites than blacks?

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.)
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.` “[Pat
Buchanan Again Cites Racist Sources on Black Crime,

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:

Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI)

higher than whites on psychopathic personality,
Asians have scored lower.

explain how The Color of Crime got things

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.
