Caruba Under Attack by SPLC
In today's edition of Solon.Com, my commentary about the Oathkeepers evoked an attack by someone writing on behalf of the Southern Poverty Law Center where the article originally appeared. Also included in the attack is the American Policy Center and my longtime friend, Tom DeWeese, its founder.
By happenstance, not planning, I have a commentary about the Center and DeWeese, also under attack by the SPLC, that will be posted here later today. It was written over the weekend.
The SPLC article asserts that I am the communications director for the American Policy Center. This is wrong. I served in that capacity for about ten years until 2004. I continue to be an advisor to the Center.
Also under attack in the article, Tea Party Nation, a social network site to which I contribute my commentaries. Apparently the SPLC has a problem with any group or organization that seeks to protect the Constitution and the nation "from all enemies foreign and domestic."
