    American Thinker ^ | 15 Sep, 2017 | William L. Gensert
    Twitter cofounder Evan Williams has said: “I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place, I was wrong about that.” Yet, we cannot speak freely, can we? Say the wrong thing and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) will label you a hatemonger. The nation’s founders envisioned free speech as a guardrail against the republic veering down an embankment, thinking that if speech were free, someone would be there to call BS when the nation went places not intended or imagined. Yet, today, every progressive (read Democrat,...

    Far-Leftists making money hand over fist while “smearing any group which disagrees with them as a ‘hate group.’” By lumping legitimate groups together with the KKK and neo-Nazis, the Southern Poverty Law Center hopes to destroy all those who dissent from the hard-Leftist agenda. The Washington Free Beacon exposed the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a self-appointed hate group monitor infamous for lumping mainstream conservative nonprofits alongside legitimate hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, keeps millions of dollars in multiple offshore accounts. Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street analyst and financial adviser known for uncovering a 2009 financial scandal at General...
  • What It’s Like to Be Smeared by the Southern Poverty Law Center

    Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, was to testify before the House Homeland Security Committee about threats posed by domestic extremist groups. The hearing, scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed because of Hurricane Irma. As a black conservative who has been smeared by the SPLC, I recommend against reinviting Mr. Cohen. When Morris Dees and Joseph J. Levin Jr. started the SPLC in 1971, it was needed and it had noble goals. In recent years, however, it has become a tool of the radical left....

    News that Morris Dee’s Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) transferred some $5 million offshore in 2014 caught many by surprise. For example, tax expert Amy Sterling Casil, CEO of the nonprofit consulting firm Pacific Human Capital, upon learning of the transactions, said: I’ve never known a U.S.-based nonprofit dealing in human rights or social services to have any foreign bank accounts.… I am stunned to learn of transfers of millions to offshore bank accounts. It is a huge red flag and would [be] completely unacceptable to any wealthy, responsible, experienced board member who was committed to a charitable mission who...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center is a far left hate group that monitors what it defines as “hate groups” in America. The list includes singing nuns, secular Muslims, and traditional Christian communities. The SPLC is also linked to several violent acts in America. Craig Stephen Hicks Craig Steven Hicks is a raging progressive leftist who fed on a steady diet of liberal media. Then he murdered three Muslims. Hicks was a fan of the Huffington Post, Rachel Maddow, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Freedom from Religion Foundation.

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Southern Poverty Law Center has announced it would include prominent American veterans’ organizations American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars in its listing of hate groups, sources confirmed today. In a written statement signed by SPLC President J. Richard Cohen, the organization said both the VFW and Legion were included since many of their members sympathize with radical, extreme-right-wing ideals such as freedom, safety, and family values. “I hate to criminalize a group of decorated war veterans,” Cohen said, from somewhere deep within a fog of pit sweat in his corporate think-tank steam room, where Sen....

    Google, Facebook and the rest wield more power than most governments. The secular Left and the proponents of Islamic blasphemy laws have a new issue on which they are making common cause: the quest to destroy the freedom of speech, the cornerstone of our democracy. After Charlottesville, the Left sees its chance to crush all dissent, and given its alliance with Islamic supremacists, this means the implementation in the West of prohibitions on criticism of Islam, including counterterror analysis of the motivating ideology of jihad terrorists. This anti-free speech initiative, if it succeeds, will destroy free society, which cannot exist...

    Outrageous… The far left Southern Poverty Law Center has once again put the “Singing Nuns” on its hate group map. Here the Singing Nuns from Spokane sing “Ave Maria.” he Singing Nuns are traditional Catholic Sisters, members of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen. In other words, they wear their full-length blue habits all the time — not just on special occasions or when they are singing. Their motherhouse, St. Michael’s Convent, is located at Mount St. Michael, just north of Spokane, Washington. The far left says these traditional Catholic nuns are a hate group. The Spokesman-Review reported, via Free...

    A company that processes online donations for organizations cancelled its service with a Christian organization after the pro-abortion Southern Poverty Law Center labeled it a “hate group” over its conservative political views. This action highlights longstanding concerns pro-life conservatives have had about of the kind of discrimination pro-life Christians can expect for their beliefs. The Ruth Institute, whose primary focus is family breakdown, and its impact on children, informed LifeNews today about the discrimination. Officials indicated Ruth Institute’s on-line donation processor cut them off from further funding for allegedly promoting “hate, violence, harassment or abuse.” The Ruth Institute learned late...

    The leader of the Southern Poverty Law Center said the organization condemns the antifa movement but won't brand it with the center's often-cited "hate group" designation. Richard Cohen, the president of the SPLC, told the Washington Examiner the loosely organized antifa movement, short for anti-fascism, is "wrongheaded" in opposing free speech and using violence. "We oppose these groups and what they're trying to do. We just don't think anyone should be able to censor someone else's speech," Cohen said, echoing and endorsing recent statements from progressive scholar Noam Chomsky.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has gained traction in recent weeks, but contrary to media reports, the group does not exist to "monitor hate groups" but to destroy groups that it targets for "strictly ideological" reasons. In light of large donations from Apple, J.P. Morgan, and George Clooney, and CNN's favorable coverage of the SPLC, Americans should learn the real motivations behind this far-left organization. In the words of SPLC former spokesman Mark Potok (who spent 20 years as a senior fellow at the SPLC and only retired this year, according to LinkedIn), the group does not exist to...

    For months now, we've written about how too many in the blogosphere believe they are "breaking" news and are given such kudos when they really have not. The Washington Free Beacon "broke" a story about the nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center and their Cayman Islands bank accounts. The problem is this is NOT breaking news. We decided to take on the SPLC weeks ago and linked to pieces written as far back as the 80's about their impressive financial holdings and even a Daily Kos piece in 2010 about their Cayman Islands bank accounts.

    Tim Cook, J.P. Morgan, and George and Amal Clooney should realize that some[i] of the millions they are donating to the Southern Poverty Law Center is going to end up in the Cayman Islands or other offshore secrecy havens. The SPLC is a big business that raises far more than it spends, and is building up assets in places that offer secrecy as a marketing point. We know this thanks to some admirable (and often tedious) digging through publicly available documents filed with the IRS by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Joe Schoffstall of the Free Beacon deserves much credit:...

Now, there are people trying to put a smile on this by saying, “No, no, no, you’re misunderstanding what Tillerson was saying. Tillerson was saying the president speaks for himself on these issues, not that he speaks differently.” Look, here’s what’s happened in a nutshell. Trump does his three different statements on Charlottesville. The first statement, you know, the media had a cow, they didn’t particularly like it. So Trump went on and in the second statement specifically condemned neo-Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists because that’s what...
