Daniel Greenfield rags on the Southern Poverty Law Center

I told readers yesterday about the Southern Poverty Law Center’s latest “hate group” report here.  Now Daniel Greenfield a blogger (Sultan Knish) writes this hilarious piece entitled, “How I Became a Hate Group.”   Check it out for a good laugh to start your day.  Hat tip:  Judy.

From Frontpage magazine:

When I went to sleep last night, little did I know that while outside sirens competed with car alarms in the symphony that is New York City, I had already been declared a hate group.

Being declared a hate group wasn’t in my plans for the day, but like winning the lottery, it seems to be one of those things that happens when you least expect it. Except that as the little bald man in front of the bodega tells you, you have to play to win, but you don’t even have to buy a ticket to be declared an official hate group.

My first response on finding out that I was now a hate group was to look around to see where everyone else was. A hate group needs the “group” part, and one man and a cat don’t seem to be enough. Even when the cat is a well known bigot who hates mice, birds, car alarms that go off in the middle of the night, the plumber and sudden noises.

Still the Southern Poverty Law Center had listed, “Sultan Knish a blog by Daniel Greenfield” as one of their “Active Anti-Muslim Hate Groups,” alongside such other vast organizations as “Faith Freedom,” a website for ex-Muslims, and “Casa D’Ice Signs,” the signs on a bar located on K-Mart Plaza located in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

Read it all and laugh!

And, you know what is funny (NOT!) is that mainstream media outlets will take this SPLC “report” seriously, and without any further investigation pass it along to gullible readers and viewers as being accurate.


  1. This is all so unfair.

    $PLC gives this guy “Hate Group” status just for blogging, but after years and years of many people’s efforts, Help Save Maryland is still only rated a “Nativist Extremist” group?

    Greenfield must have bribed someone.

    • I was thinking the same thing…maybe those of the rest of us not getting enough recognition from the SPLC should be e-mailing and calling asking for equal honors! Heck, SPLC we haters are working awfully hard out here!

  2. […] * I’ve written about Greenfield on these pages before.  As an anti-Islamist writer he brought the wrath of the Southern Poverty Law Center down on his head (and on his cat’s head) in a very funny post, here. […]
