Back in February Floyd Corkins pleaded guilty to charges that included interstate transportation of a firearm, assault with intent to kill and committing an act of terrorism in connection with the shooting at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C., last August.
Leo Johnson, who wrestled Corkins to the ground, was injured by the shooter, but prevented what could have been a massacre.
CBS News reported at the time that Corkins told FBI agents he wanted to “kill as many as possible” to “make a statement against the people who work in that building … and with their stance against gay rights and Chick-fil-A.” Corkins was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in a bag when he was subdued. At a pre-trial hearing he admitted he intended to smear the sandwiches in the faces of his victims.
In a statement following the shooting, Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins alleged that the Southern Poverty Law Center had given Corkins a license to shoot by listing the Family Research Center as a hate group on its website.
At the time Erick Erickson noted:
He misspelled Laughner’s name. Jarred Lee Laughner was the DEMOCRAT who had stalked Congresswoman Gabby Giffords since early 2007, before pretty much ANYONE, including Laughner, knew who Sarah Palin was.
Laughner was a far left radical, like Corkins, and was angry at Congresswoman Giffords, because she wasn’t left wing enough, for his taste. Democrats and their media allies immediately blood libeled Governor Palin, and the entire Tea Party, after democrat Laughner shot Giffords and murdered numerous civilians in attendance at her rally.
As Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Magazine points out, the Southern Poverty Law Center is just another radical left wing hate-group, disguised as an “advocacy” group. The only thing left wing groups like SPLC advocate is hatred towards all of those who disagree with their radical anti-American agenda.
As Greenfield notes, Morris Dees, co-founder of the SPLC doesn’t seem phased a bit by the fact his hate-group inspired a mass murderer, who luckily, failed.
In February, Floyd Lee Corkins, 29, pleaded guilty to shooting and wounding a security guard at the Family Research Center’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Early reports that Corkins was carrying a bag full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches turned out to be true; he told an FBI agent that he wanted to “kill as many as possible” to “make a statement against the people who work in that building … and with their stance against gay rights and Chick-fil-A.” He’d do that by shooting them and then smearing the sandwiches on the faces of his victims.
Today, Corkins was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the shooting. He had pleaded guilty to charges of committing an act of terrorism while armed, assault with intent to kill while armed, and interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition.
Corkins was found with a list of four conservative organizations taken directly from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s own “hate map.” WUSA9 reports that Corkin was also found with two fully loaded “magazine clips” and a box of 50 rounds of 9mm ammunition.

It should be noted, that all of the recent mass murderers, and would-be mass murderers, have been of the democrat party persuasion. And yet, every time one of these hate filled democrats goes off, and starts killing, the first people blamed are Conservatives, and lawful gun owners.
The media needs to be held accountable, for helping spread the hate and lies created by democrat party hate-groups, like the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Enough of this BS is enough.
