From TFA:

 And Spencer's chief concern about the prevalence of the label appears to be that it is proving an obstacle to his efforts to sell new border-related technology to the U.S. government.

So this piece of shiat stirs up anti-immigration fervor by some incredibly hateful speech -- and then wants to sell the government technology to try to secure the border.  He's the worst kind of con man.

"We're not a 'hate group,' we're more of a 'tough-love' group"

In his current effort, Spencer is being represented by Munger, a well-connected attorney who ran briefly for governor in 2010, chaired the Arizona Republican Party in the 1980s, and has held roles on various gubernatorial and presidential campaigns over the years.

So you might say....

...he's a Hate Munger.

And here we have the classic misunderstanding: your freedom of speech does not free you from the social repercussions of that speech.  In this case, his well-established views and tireless work to demonize Jewish, Hispanic, and immigrant peoples, views he doesn't dispute having, are impacting his business's viability.

Well, no one told you you have to be an unhinged hate-monger, even if it did inspire you to develop some seemingly kick-ass product.

" He is widely credited with popularizing the conspiracy theory that holds that Mexican immigrants plan to take over the southwestern United States, reunite it with Mexico and perhaps even rename it Aztlan "

Is there a way we can make this actually happen, and soon?

"I have many Jewish friends and they have been extremely instrumental in fighting illegal immigration," Spencer wrote. "I fear, however, that this small handful of patriotic Americans are far outnumbered by liberal Jews who now have total control over our media."

Totally not racist statement, since before he blamed Jews, he said he knows a few...

And tangentially related:

Speaking of 'Aztlan'. if anyone wants to know the story behind Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, check out 'Strange Rumblings in Aztlan'.

So, you're saying all conservatives have a conservative victim complex, Celtus? Please note:

Fluffy bunnies sometimes are paranoid, and "There ain't no paranoid like a fluffy bunny paranoid!"

It does not follow that all fluffy bunnies are paranoid.

That's the #1 sign of a dangerous conspiracy that threatens our way of life: lack of evidence.  These people are pros, of course they covered their tracks!  Study it out!

I ordered a hamburger in a Mexican restaurant, and the cantaloupe-calved waiter labeled me a hate group.

Can sociopaths truly be said to hate? I thought irritation was about the strongest emotion they were capable of supporting.

You can be anti illegal immigration without being anti immigration.

They can get pissed off when their planes are thwarted.  They don't need passion to do some truly evil things.

They're a severely annoyed group.
 
2014-04-17 04:09:24 PM  
I'd be upset, too, if I were them. They are clearly a hate 'organization' not a hate 'group.'
 
2014-04-17 04:10:07 PM  
I would have never known this hate group exists if they hadn't sent that letter.

Thanks guys!
 
2014-04-17 04:28:59 PM  
It's almost as if people's past behavior and public statements form some sort of basis by which they are unfairly characterized. When that interferes with making money, it's wrong.

Screw the lawsuit, I want to know more about this secret technology that Kenya and Turkey are supposedly interested in. It does seem strange if it is going to be used to protect endangered elephants and protect the Turkish high speed trains from terror attacks that there hasn't been any rumblings about it on the internet. So there must be something to his claim that labeling his group as a hate group has damaged his product's name. Or he is full of shiat and if you tried to contact anybody in those governments about him and this mystery technology they wouldn't have any idea what you are talking about and will tell you that they never heard of him or his product. I'm going with the second one, unless the talk of his group being a hate group reached two countries that the people in charge could give a fark about an American hate group.
