CIS Blog, May 26, 2017
Excerpt: This was my first thought when I read the Southern Poverty Law Center's latest screed attacking my organization, the Center for Immigration Studies. But rather than simply counting the Ks in my name, the SPLC's Inspector Javerts spent what must have been weeks combing through hundreds of weekly CIS roundups of immigration-related commentary from all sides. Then they researched the hundreds of columnists and bloggers whose pieces had been included — investigating their personal lives and statements in other articles — in order to find objectionable material (some of it anti-Semitic), which we are then somehow responsible for. This is proof that we're a "hate group."
Interestingly, the SPLC didn't do a similar background check on all the pro-amnesty, open-borders authors who were also linked. For instance, our most recent email included a New York Timeslove to see what he's said elsewhere), a piece from the New York Daily News by some lefty politicians, and other pieces from Cato, Reason, and The Intercept.
Not that it matters, since the roundup — the opinion counterpart to a roundup of academic journal articles, government reports, and the like — is an educational exercise intended to present the range of commentary on immigration. There's a lot on Vdare.com, for instance that I don't like (inclusion of their links was the first thing the SPLC gumshoes sputtered about), but it publishes on immigration all the time and to exclude them because the Ministry of Truth disapproves would be to offer a false picture to readers.
