The SPLC has been caught red-handed trying to spin Hicks as a right-wing terrorist. Hicks’s FB page reveals him to be anything but.
According to Heavy, Hicks is pro-gay, anti-South, vehemently anti-religion and seemingly atheist, though an “ordained Deistic minister” (and “anti-theist”). And Huffington finds he’s a fan of Richard Dawkins and Thomas Paine. Additionally the CofCC finds Hicks even supports… the SPLC! It doesn’t get more left-wing than that.
Craig Hicks is suspected of killing three Muslim college students in a Chapel Hill, NC, shooting on February 10th. Two of the victims had just married. Hicks is white.
If a Christian or white racialist had murdered these young adults, it would be a hate crime. Let’s see if a militant atheist is judged by the same standard.
