To the editor:
Whatever credibility attorney Kris Kobach has had as a professional, a politician or, for that matter, as an intelligent human being, goes completely down the drain when he describes the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “left-wing smear organization.”
The SPLC has been a primary nongovernmental defense against homegrown bigotry and terrorism for many decades now. It is neither left-wing nor right-wing — or any other wing.
Until now, the SPLC has been attacked by neo-Nazi movements, the Ku Klux Klan and a variety of groups with similar ideologies.
It seems that Mr. Kobach has joined an auspicious lineup of hate groups.
