The SPLC, you see, has designated the venerable American Legion a “hate group” for its stance on immigration enforcement.The truth:
In fact, the SPLC has never listed the legion as a “hate group” nor put it on any other kind of list.Malkin appears to have followed the bouncing links to an SPLC blog post from July, 2008, pointing out errors in something the American Legion published regarding immigration. Since then, the Legion has corrected itself on most of the errors. But nowhere in that blog post, or anywhere else, has the SPLC called the American Legion a hate group. I looked it up, just to be sure. The American Legion is headquartered in Indiana, with another office in Washington, D.C.; but the SPLC's lists of hate groups for Indiana and D.C. do not include the American Legion.
Just another example of a right-wing extremist not letting the actual facts get in the way of her vitriol.
