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. Whether from malice or sheer laziness, outlets like Newsweek a quick to regurgitate SPLC’s specious “hate group” claims.
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.”
A Facebook spokesperson has confirmed the site partners with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to help police hate speech on its site. The spokesperson added that Facebook has its own definition of hate that differs from the SPLC’s.
The impossibly fickle, selective and whimsical rules of cultural appropriation are hard to keep straight. (Oops! I said "straight." Apologies to whomever. Oops, can I say "whomever?" Zimever? Verselves? Gah.) According to the white people who run the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, eating tacos, drinking tequila and wearing sombreros on Cinco de Mayo "are textbook examples of cultural appropriation."
SPLC is a politically driven organization that maliciously labels those it disagrees with “hate groups.” Whether from laziness or malevolence, journalists continue to parrot the slander, even as the mountain of evidence about SPLC’s real intentions grows.
In The Tablet, Liel Liebovitz is the latest to warn that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), although formerly a institution that targeted racism, is no longer the noble civil rights crusader it once was. Instead, the institute is raking in millions of dollars in donations while targeting people for disagreeing with Islam, identity politics, and the LGBTQ agenda.
The plea from New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman appeared in the Sunday Review: “Missing in the Fight Against Anti-Semitism.” The online headline: “Anti-Semitism Is Rising. Why Aren’t American Jews Speaking Up?” But Weisman focused solely and dubiously on controversial rightists and missed several recent examples of Democrats lining up with Louis Farrakhan. Weisman himself has a tangled history with accusations of anti-semitism that make his plea unconvincing.
Why does Hollywood think that a lefty hate group deserves donations on Valentine’s Day? The leap of logic was promoted by actress Alyssa Milano, who partnered with the organization Love is Louder to fundraise for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Milano tweeted an encouragement to her followers, “Let’s inspire young people to embrace diversity and practice tolerance, respect, and acceptance,” and linked to the SPLC website. CNN’s Van Jones also tweeted his support for the project.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again -- spreading hate against people it disagrees with.This time, the SPLC targeted ACT for America during ACT’s seventh annual national conference. The assault triggered a response among liberals eager to prove their fidelity to SPLC’s intolerant agenda of hate. The SPLC attacked ACT as the “largest anti-Muslim organization in the U.S.,” and criticized Marriott hotels for hosting the conference.
Public service announcements are supposed to benefit the public. But when wealthy Hollywood celebrities create them, it’s to push their left-wing agenda -- everything from attacking President Donald Trump to promoting an anti-Christian anti-conservative hate group. The latest PSA features celebrities urging viewers to donate to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). It aired on CBS August 26, and starred 7 celebrities from sports, movies and TV. This video was the 19th celebrity PSA made in the past 14 months.
The term “genocide” conjures images of World War II concentration camps, Soviet Gulags, gulags, the violence and rioting in 1994 Rwanda or the ISIS purging of Syrian and Iraqi Christians. But Salon contributors Max Pensky and Nadia Rubaii believe “genocidal violence can happen in the U.S. It has happened.” So what should individuals do? Look to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for guidance, of course!
On August 17, CNN published a story with the headline: “Here Are All The Active Hate Groups Where You Live.” Was it a concise list of Nazi groups? No. It was the SPLC “hate map” and the “917 hate groups” that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated as dangerous. The post was just SPLC’s regurgitated map and list, given without comment, context or qualification.
