Hate, Inc.: The SPLC Is a Hyper-Partisan Scam  https://www.national...up-labels-scam/

 

There was a time when the Southern Poverty Law Center did useful work reporting on actual hate groups such as the KKK. These days, though, the SPLC is simply a MoveOn or Media Matters–style outfit.

 

Its core mission now is trying to marginalize and shut up even mildly right-of-center voices by calling them instruments of hate, making increasingly strained attempts to tie conservative commentators, authors, political figures, and professors to the alt-right or neo-Nazism. At the same time it elevates absurd bloggers to the level of potential leaders of lynch mobs.  

 

It has targeted Senator Rand Paul, surgeon–turned–HUD secretary Ben Carson, and human-rights activists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maajid Nawaz, calling them extremists or agents of hate (though it removed Carson from its list after an outcry), and it tagged both the Family Research Council and Mark Krikorian’s think tank, the Center for Immigration Studies, as hate groups, though the latter has been invited to testify before Congress more than 100 times.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has lost all credibility  

 

After years of smearing good people with false charges of bigotry, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has finally been held to account. A former Islamic radical named Maajid Nawaz sued the center for including him in its bogus “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists,” and this week the SPLC agreed to pay him a $3.375 million settlement and issued a public apology.

 

The SPLC is a once-storied organization that did important work filing civil rights lawsuits against the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s. But it has become a caricature of itself, labeling virtually anyone who does not fall in line with its left-wing ideology an “extremist” or “hate group.”

 

Nawaz is a case in point. Since abandoning Islamic radicalism, he has advised three British prime ministers and created the Quilliam Foundation, to fight extremism. He is not anti-Muslim. He is a Muslim and has argued that “Islam is a religion of peace.”  https://www.washingt...m=.7eb24c0d91c0

Senator Cotton says the SPLC is a political hate group. “They have a hate map and they use it to stigmatize their political opponents, respectable center-right organizations like the Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom.    https://www.thegatew...w-center-video/

 

There are plenty of groups on the left that I don’t agree with but I don’t try to stigmatize them as a hate group and then go peddle that to CNN, The New York Times or attack their donors.”

 

Senator Cotton added, “Serial repeated defamation of your political opponents is not a tax exempt purpose.”

Cotton argues the SPLC is a hate group masquerading as a non-profit.

Cotton is just scratching the surface.

In 2017 the SPLC named the VFW the American Legion as HATE GROUPS. In fact they pointedly labeled all military vets as potential terrorists.

Now they face charges of corruption, racism, sexual harassment ... and more.

They are putrid scum.

The "Anti-Hate" Group That Is a Hate Group  

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center has confirmed The Daily Caller’s exclusive report that they are policing content on YouTube as part of YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program.

 

The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 non-government organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

Claims of workplace racism, harassment stretch back decades at Southern Poverty Law Center    https://www.al.com/n...law-center.html

 

Last week’s firing of Morris Dees, co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, pushed the working environment of the civil rights organization into the national spotlight.

 

Recent reports in news organizations including the Los Angeles Times cite internal SPLC emails in which employees describe problems with alleged workplace sexual harassment, gender discrimination and racism.  

 

“They’ve done a lot of incredible things, very positive things, the Center and Morris as well,” said Jackson. But, he said, “Discrimination can sometimes have a liberal face. And so can racism.”

Twitter Drops SPLC As 'Safety Partner' - While Facebook, Google, Amazon Remain Silent  https://www.zerohedg...n-remain-silent

 

The SPLC is on a list of “external experts and organizations” that Facebook works with “to inform our hate speech policies,” Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja told TheDCNF in June 2018. The company consults with outside organizations when developing changes to hate speech policies, he said at the time.

 
Amazon granted the SPLC broad policing power over the Amazon Smile charitable program. “We remove organizations that the SPLC deems as ineligible,” an Amazon spokeswoman told TheDCNF in 2018. Amazon grants the SPLC that power “because we don’t want to be biased whatsoever,” she said at the time....
