One culprit in all of this is the overrated status of the Southern Poverty Law Center and its "hate group" designation. Critics have charged it is a self-serving organization whose leaders appropriate toomuch of its funding from charitable donations for their own personal fortunes, do not treat their black employees well, is not well-rated for efficient use of donations by charity rating organizations, exaggerates the threat from white separatists and militia groups, and tends to be tendentiously pro-Zionist. Counterpunch magazine and several columns by Alexander Cockburn have brought these problems to light.

Check out this article by Megan Littlejohn in Free Inquiry:
It's called "The War on Hate" and addresses efforts to stifle free speech at UofO in the name of political correctness.
Megan is a member of the Alliance of Happy Atheists! (AHA!), a student group affiliate of the Center for Inquiry. AHA! and CFI Portland co-sponsored the recent talk by Hemant Mehta at UofO.
