Earlier this month, we reported on the sinister efforts of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel to establish a “thought criminal” database in her state to keep tabs on conservatives, Christians, and others whose views run contrary to her Leftist agenda. Well, Nessel is now being sued by the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) for unfairly and unjustly targeting her political opponents, which is a clear abuse of public office.
On Tuesday, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an anti-Christian smear factory that accuses conservative and Christian organizations of being “hate groups” like the Ku Klux Klan, used civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr. in a fundraising email — for its efforts against “hate and extremism.” Black leaders condemned this subversion of King’s image and his battle for civil rights.
A group of conservative leaders has called on the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe to cut ties with the SPLC.
Recently, Breitbart News reported that social media website Twitter may have cut ties with the far-left SPLC following reports of a number of scandals within the organization; some insider reports allege that the SPLC’s “hate” monitoring is, in fact, a money-making scam. Previously, the SPLC was one of Twitter’s “safety partners” which helped to identify and remove “hateful conduct and harassment” on the platform.
A cynic might conclude the media props up the Southern Poverty Law Center to advance a shared political agenda. That cynic would have some evidence to support the theory.
The Southern Poverty Law Center—America’s wealthiest so-called civil rights group—is engulfed in scandal. Do not expect the establishment media to stop relying on them anytime soon.
In March, the SPLC ousted its co-founder and public face, Morris Dees, amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment and mistreatment of nonwhite staffers. Two weeks later, SPLC president Richard Cohen stepped down to assist the group in implementing findings of an internal investigation.
On Friday, Citizens for Corporate Accountability (CCA) delivered a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos demanding his corporation stop using the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) “hate group” list. On Thursday, CCA bought a full-page ad in the Montgomery Advertiser, the newspaper in Montgomery, Ala., where the SPLC is based, demanding the far-left smear factory withdraw its “hate map” and submit to a truly independent investigation.
…The specialty of SPLC is the made-up hate crime. They spy hate groups where none exist, so they can shake down gullible liberals in the north. And this was plenty remunerative until it became evident that racist groups were on the terminal decline. So, they booted up to con rich gays into believing that Christians were about to take away all their hard-fought rights. Which ones? Gays could certainly vote, and assemble, and worship, and possessed all the other rights guaranteed by the Constitution.
What they came up with was that those vicious Christians were out to kill gays and the poor benighted gender confused men in dresses. In December 2003, SPLC’s Mark Potok actually wrote this: “A rage is growing on the right. Before it is done, untold numbers of men and women may have to die, casualties in America’s ongoing culture wars.” Read that again and ask yourself if this even remotely resembles anyone you know or have ever met? Of course not; it was part of the con. And Moser was in on it, too.
As the Southern Poverty Law Center faces criticism from both sides of the political spectrum and talk of implosion, 67 conservative organizations called on the media to stop citing it as an expert in right-wing “hate groups.”
That is the question that Senator Tom Cotton asked today in a letter to the IRS. The Southern Poverty Law Center is an arm of the Democratic Party whose stock in trade is defamation. What tax-exempt purposes do baseless, politically-motivated smears serve?
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is pressing the IRS to investigate the tax-exempt status of leftist group Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization that has been mired in scandal.
Cotton argues that a series of recent reports regarding the leftist group’s patently political activities are troubling, and in a letter to the head of the IRS provided to Breitbart News exclusively ahead of its public release questions whether these actions warrant removal of the group’s status as a nonprofit organization.
After the 2016 election, the Southern Poverty Law Center accepted every accusation of racism or sexism provided to it as evidence of America’s decline after electing President Donald Trump.
On Thursday morning, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) blasted out an email with the latest article in “Teaching Tolerance”: “Teaching First-Graders About Microaggressions.” Yes, the SPLC wants 6-year-old kids to examine schoolyard insults in the light of structural racism.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is fundraising for a wide-ranging war on President Trump, and has enlisted a top aide to former first lady Michelle Obama who played a key role in the dropping of felony charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.
Trump’s name was used five times in a fundraising memo from Bryan Fair, chairman of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s board of directors.
“Given the rising tide of hate and given the callousness of the Trump administration, our work is as critical as ever.
As of Monday afternoon, Jocelyn Benson — Michigan’s Democratic secretary of state — was listed as a member of the board of directors for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a far-left smear factory currently struggling with a massive racism and sexism scandal. On Tuesday, Benson’s name and profile had disappeared from the website. Benson’s office insisted she had left the SPLC when she became secretary of state, but that answer does not hold up to scrutiny.
Two weeks ago, the co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center (a left-wing organization ostensibly painted as a civil rights group) was fired for undisclosed reasons. A week later, we learned the firing occurred as employees within the organization alleged racism and sexism. A few days after that, the president of the organization resigned.
The firing of Morris Dees, the co-founder of the S.P.L.C., has flushed up uncomfortable questions that have surrounded the organization for years.
In the days since the stunning dismissal of Morris Dees, the co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, on March 14th, I’ve been thinking about the jokes my S.P.L.C. colleagues and I used to tell to keep ourselves sane. Walking to lunch past the center’s Maya Lin–designed memorial to civil-rights martyrs, we’d cast a glance at the inscription from Martin Luther King, Jr., etched into the black marble—“Until justice rolls down like waters”—and intone, in our deepest voices, “Until justice rolls down like dollars.” The Law Center had a way of turning idealists into cynics; like most liberals, our view of the S.P.L.C. before we arrived had been shaped by its oft-cited listings of U.S. hate groups, its reputation for winning cases against the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nations, and its stream of direct-mail pleas for money to keep the good work going. The mailers, in particular, painted a vivid picture of a scrappy band of intrepid attorneys and hate-group monitors, working under constant threat of death to fight hatred and injustice in the deepest heart of Dixie. When the S.P.L.C. hired me as a writer, in 2001, I figured I knew what to expect: long hours working with humble resources and a highly diverse bunch of super-dedicated colleagues. I felt self-righteous about the work before I’d even begun it.
