The Economist Strikes Back!

Wednesday, we reported on Rep. Lacy Clay’s misinformed and hateful remarks toward Thomas DiLorenzo and the League of the South during hearings Rep. Ron Paul held on the Federal Reserve. [Above is a link to a] video of that hearing. Clay opens the curtains to reveal his vast ignorance and total lack of class at 51:00 in. As you can see, DiLorenzo had no opportunity to rebut.
Now it’s DiLorenzo’s turn:
Clay then declared that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) apparently disapproves of the League of the South. What a shocker! This is the same SPLC that accused the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. of "mainstreaming hate" by sponsoring a public debate on immigration policy. Their modus operandi is to label any individual or group that effectively criticizes their far-left, socialistic agenda as a "hater." Apparently, associating with anyone south of the Mason-Dixon line in any way qualifies one as a "hater" and potential KKK recruit in the warped minds of the hateful and libelous SPLC.
Biff! Bam! Pow!
