The Southern Poverty Law Center has identified 917 hate groups in the United States because that's what they have to do in order to justify their sad existence. What started out as a noble cause has devolved into a funding machine.

Uh huh. And who blew up the mosque in Minneapolis last week? And who has bombed abortion clinics? And killed Muslims and those who look like them? They're not love groups, that's for sure. You have to name something to fight it. Otherwise it's ignored. Yes they're criminals, too, but beyond that they are motivated by hate.

  • Telling the truth
    "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." George Orwell "I found that to tell the truth is the hardest thing on earth, harder than fighting in a war, harder than taking part in a revolution." Richard Wright, 1944.
  • From the News Release
    PeoriaStory will tell the stories that likely won’t be told by the mainstream/corporate media. It will question local political candidates for their views on controversial topics. It will cover and profile off-beat movements and people. It will take stands on issues such as the Kellar trail. It will also serve as a forum for liberal and progressive events, and welcomes news releases from groups working for the public good. PeoriaStory will be a fresh, new voice for the Peoria area blogosphere, and offer a liberal and progressive perspective for our times.
