Brian Levin has just been taken to ‘school’ by, of all people, Bill Maher. Read, watch, listen, and enjoy the whole exchange here at NewsBusters.
Earlier posts on this blog pointed out how groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center use public relations press releases to craft their public image and propagate their ideology. While the SPLC pays its PR guru a six-digit salary to keep the tens of millions of donor dollars coming in, not every “watchdog” group has such deep pockets.
Take the case of Brian Levin, a professor and self-described “Director” of the “Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism” at California State University at San Bernardino (CSU/SB). That’s an extremely impressive title, however, all signs indicate that Mr. Levin is the entire staff of the “Center for the Study of Hate.”
There just doesn’t seem to be anyone else there for the “Director” to direct.
A brief view of the evidence does little to dispel this impression:
- The “Center’s” web site languished for 8 years with virtually no updates…

What Fritz Katz Said to Piss-Off
|Background: European politician Geert Wilders gave a speech in
Florida. The ADL condemned his remarks as “antithetical
to American democratic ideals“.
Master of the Little Green Footballs blog, Charles
However, Robert Spencer and ‘YID with LID‘ have an

|Wilders’ statements are about as un-American as it’s
possible to be. I’m finished giving him the benefit of
the doubt, and it’s beyond hypocritical of him to be
touting “freedom of expression” at the same time as
he advocates taking away the rights of Muslims.
|Those little numbers on the right of each banner are ‘karma’.
Many people on LGF have been banned for down-dinging
posts of Charles or one of his cronies.
Just who does Charles think he is, calling people
An American response would be to ban the bad behavior
|20 Charles 4/30/09 2:38:03 pm +20|
|Wilders is selling the view that all Muslims are
evil and must be expelled from Western society, the
Koran should be banned, and Islam should be outlawed
as a religion.Sorry. I am NOT down with that. .
Is Charles being intellectually dishonest here or
is he telling the truth? Did Wilders actually say
that or is Charles just blowing smoke? Is there any
way to know?Several posts pass and we see that there’s still
some intellect left at LGF… from someone presciently

|Well, in the first place, it would be difficult to
“ban” islam. as a result of taqiyya amongst muslims,
that is lying in the name of the religion, a “group”
could “congregate” and do services in members’
houses or a place like that. nevertheless, i find it
hard to believe that charles johnson and everyone
else in this website is so against Geert Wilders.
He is standing up for Western civilization, something

Wow!, someone else with a mind of her own. I’ll bet

|And by the way, when Wilders says that he wants to
deport Muslim “criminals,” please note that if he gets
his way, Islam is outlawed, and the right to
freedom of religion is taken away from Muslims,
ALL Muslims will be criminals. This is just disgusting.

Now I’m starting to wonder if Charles has lost
his “sanity” and powers of “rational thought”
(quote marks deliberate). I was pretty sure that I
said that Wilders was the one who advocated
stopping the building of new mosques and close
ONLY mosques where incitement is taking place
and Islamic schools that indoctrinate young
children to hate and violence.And how did
he make the mental leap of me ACCUSING HIM
of writing that we should “ban building

Michelle Malkin has a report about the new channel:
It’s all Obama, all the time.
Is it a violation of FCC & FEC rules?
It’s not a FCC violation to have a channel that’s just plain partisan socialist or even communist. Perhaps after Obama wins and institutes the “Fairness Doctrine”, making conservativeness a “thought crime” then it will be a violation to have a channel with just one point of view.
Donno about the FEC violation. Isn’t that channel a 24-hour rolling advertisement and might be a violation of McCain-Feingold regarding contributions to political candidates?
So stop yer bitchin’ if you don’t like what you see on TV, change the channel — literally.
Why don’t conservatives start their own channel? There’s plenty of content from numerous conservative/libertarian producers (PajamasTV, HotAir, ReasonTV). We could run programs from MEMRI exposing the Islamofascists. There are hundreds on YouTube. I bet Rush Limbaugh TV (a.k.a. DittoCam) would be more popular than the Howard Stern TV show. There are many classic conservative movies.
The financial cost has for creating a TV network has never been lower. Corporations can buy 24-hour channels on DirecTV or Dish to reach their workforce nationwide for a cost much less than building a single analog broadcasting station. Maybe that’s what was done for the Obama channel.
New ATSC digital broadcasting enables more channels. It would be possible to piggy-back on an existing broadcasters in major markets like LA or NY.
People with independent / conservative / libertarian (small L, like Dennis Miller) free-market ideas are the majority in this country. They would flock to such a channel. That would be a huge market — and bring in huge revenue advertising and/or subscriptions.

I donno about having to choose between the lesser of two evils when it comes to politics this year.
It’s more like a choice between evil and stupid.
I don’t see McCain as an evil man — his heart’s in the right place and he endeavors to do the right thing. Look at what McCain accomplished with Campaign Finance reform — or am-nasty for illegals (actually it was good to the illegals, but nasty for the rest of the citizens of the USA). McCain honestly thought he was doing what’s best for the country.

I’ve had an epiphany, see if this makes sense to you…
‘Progressives’ have a vested interest in people having problems.
If someone comes up with a solution to a problem, they will do everything in their power to block it. If a solution actually works — they will publish lies about it and make it appear that it doesn’t work. If there isn’t a problem, they will pull a problem out their wazoo and make it appear to be a problem.
This enables them to take over the government, and force their false ‘solution’ down everyone’s throat. This false solution usually entails a bigger unwieldy bureaucracy, massive waste, and even more problems. They can use these new problems to consolidate their control over peoples lives even more.
We’ll call this new law of the universe:
“The vicious cycle of progressivism”
Replace ‘progressive’ with the label du jour that they currently like to call themselves: ‘liberal’, ‘socialist’, ‘statist‘, ‘communist’, … Eventually they will wear out the word ‘progressive’ and have to come up with a new label. But it doesn’t matter what they call themselves, this law of the universe still holds.
Wind power cannot work. We cannot drill our way out of the energy crisis. Government is the only solution to the ‘crisis’ in health care. Terrorism is not caused by Islamists — it’s due to inadequate funding for liberals pet giveaway project in the mid-east. The surge cannot work in Iraq.
