SPLC apologizes, takes down Ben Carson 'Extremist File' - Washington Times

Amid heavy criticism, the Southern Poverty Law Center has apologized and removed an “Extremist File” it had posted in the fall on retired neurosurgeon and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson.

“This week, as we’ve come under intense criticism for doing so, we’ve reviewed our profile and have concluded that it did not meet our standards, so we have taken it down and apologize to Dr. Carson for having posted it,” the group said in a statement.

The group still maintained that Mr. Carson “has, in fact, made a number of statements that express views that we believe most people would conclude are extreme.”
So, they took him off their 'extremist' list, but still believe he's 'extreme'.:uncomfortableness:

SPLC is a hate group. No one pays attention to them except for extremist.

See: Floyd Corkins.

This groups name SPLC has been mention quite a few times as of recent, interesting that they would even consider profiling Ben Carson, they should have their hands full with the many true hate groups existing today.

To inflict damage to his reputation and then come back and say: "we’ve reviewed our profile and have concluded that it did not meet our standards, so we have taken it down and apologize to Dr. Carson for having posted it,” the group said in a statement".

What do want someone to do when they realize they have made an error?
BE like a RW an just stick with the error stubbornly?

Nothing strange about extremists not liking the SPLC, just like nothing strange about Roaches not liking sunlight.
