Will a former Obama insider really expose the depredations of fellow “social justice” crusaders? Stay tuned to find out on the next episode of Southern Poverty Law!
There's a big shakeup going down at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) this week.

The left hasn’t just circled the wagons around freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, it’s going on offense. The weapon of choice is, of course, the press. Roll Call’s Emily Kopp targeted two groups critical of Omar with a March 6 hatchet job notable for its dishonesty and its bias.

On Monday, Newsweek published an article warning the general public about an ACT for America conference honoring ICE department head Thomas Homan, because the Southern Poverty Law Center has described both as promoting a hate agenda.

Liberal meltdown over Trump’s new Supreme Court pick has been cataclysmic to say the least. NBCNews.com added to the hysteria on Sunday by labeling the president’s nominee shortlist as “extreme.”
The anti-conservative Southern Poverty Law Center just learned hate can be expensive. The SPLC had to “apologize” to a moderate Muslim organization and give it a nearly $3.4 million to settle a lawsuit. It added: “In a public statement, the SPLC’s president, Richard Cohen, explained that “Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam have made valuable and important contributions to public discourse, including by promoting pluralism and condemning both anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamist extremism.”
