Conservative leaders took aim at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), saying it’s a radical left-wing hate group masquerading as a civil-rights organization.
Forty-seven prominent conservatives penned an open letter warning the media — which is 97% liberal — against using the SPLC’s “hate group” list to target innocent people and organizations. The SPLC is funded by anti-American leftist billionaire George Soros, who also bankrolls alt-left Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter.
“The SPLC is a discredited, left-wing, political activist organization that seeks to silence its political opponents with a ‘hate group’ label of its own invention and application that is not only false and defamatory, but that also endangers the lives of those targeted with it,” the letter stated.
The Southern Poverty Law Center rose to fame by prosecuting legal cases against the Ku Klux Klan, which was founded by the Democratic Party in 1865. While its early work was commendable, the group has since devolved into “an attack dog of the political left,” the letter noted.
“Having evolved from laudable origins battling the Klan in the 1970’s, the SPLC has realized the profitability of defamation, churning out fundraising letters, and publishing “hit pieces” on conservatives to promote its agenda and pad its substantial endowment (of $319 million).
Anyone who opposes them, including many Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and traditional conservatives is slandered and slapped with the “extremist” label or even worse, their “hate group” designation.”
The SPLC recently released an overly broad list of “hate groups” that included numerous peaceful organizations, including the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian advocacy group.
The SPLC even defamed HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson — a world-renowned black neurosurgeon — by labeling him an “extremist” because of his Christian beliefs. The SPLC eventually took Dr. Carson off its hit list amid outcry over its vicious slandering of the mild-mannered physician.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is being sued by numerous individuals and groups after falsely labeling them as “hate groups” or “extremists.” Case in point: The SPLC condemned Dutch-American activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim who has spoken out against radical Islam.
It is being sued for doing the same thing to British activist Maajid Nawaz, whom it defamed as an “anti-Muslim extremist.” Nawaz, a former jihadi-in-training, preaches against radical Islam.
So basically, if you’re a conservative of any color, a white person, a Christian, or if you’re a liberal who opposes radical Islam, the SPLC considers you an extremist who’s promoting hate. Let that sink in.
We are now in a very dangerous time where anyone can be falsely accused of being a “racist” or an “extremist” simply because radical leftists don’t agree with your views. This type of fascistic liberal tyranny has to stop.
