In a short for Reason Magazine, John Stossel slammed the Southern Poverty Law Center as a "hate group" and a "money grabbing slander machine" which "profits off hate."
The Southern Poverty Law Center lists Ayaan Hirsi Ali — who grew up Muslim in Somalia and suffered female genital mutilation — as an "anti-Muslim extremist." Just because she now speaks out against radical Islam.
They also list the conservative Family Research Council as a "hate group."
That listing led a man to go to the Council's office to try to gun down their workers. The shooter later told law enforcement that he picked the group because he saw they were on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate map and he wanted to fight bigots.
