    Amazon, CNN, YouTube, PayPal and other tech and media companies are being asked in an ad published Wednesday in a major U.S. newspaper by two family organizations whether they will continue using the “hypocritical” Southern Poverty Law Center as “an authority on hate and extremism.” The ad, paid for by the Family Research Council and the American Family Association in cooperation with, points out the condemnation of the historic “civil rights” group by former employees. “The Southern Poverty Law Center, founded as a civil rights advocacy organization, has lost its way,” the ad says. “The bigotry and racial discrimination...

    Organizations promoting family and faith have purchased an ad in the Wall Street Journal that calls upon media and tech industry giants to stop aligning themselves with the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) smears of conservative and Christian groups. Family Research Council (FRC) purchased the ad in conjunction with the American Family Association (AFA) and in cooperation with The SPLC has declared both FRC and AFA as “hate groups” because of their promotion of Christian family and sexuality values. The SPLC – notorious for its labeling of many conservative and Christian organizations as “hate groups” – has recently...

    April 16, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Social media giant Twitter has quietly severed ties with the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) amid mounting reports of scandal within the organization and insider claims that SPLC’s “hate” monitoring is a money-making scam. Twitter previously identified SPLC as a “safety partner” that helps weed out “hateful conduct and harassment” on the platform, but the Daily Caller reports that their partnership may no longer be the case. “The SPLC is not a member of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council or a partner the company has worked with recently,” an anonymous source inside Twitter said....

    Amid the racism and sexism scandal roiling the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), former employees have revealed the far-left smear factory's list of "hate groups" as a cynical fundraising scam. Last year, the SPLC paid $3.375 million to settle a defamation lawsuit involving similar accusations. Now more than 60 organizations falsely accused of being "hate groups" are mulling lawsuits, and at least one lawsuit will come as soon as this summer. Former SPLC employee Bob Moser described "the annual hate-group list" as "a valuable resource for journalists and a masterstroke of Dees’s marketing talents; every year, when the center publishes...

    It appears that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is having a long overdue comeuppance. Seven years ago, inspired by SPLC’s “hate map,” a gunman walked into the Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, intending to massacre the staff and then stuff Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces. FRC is among many Christian organizations targeted by the SPLC for pro-family stances. During the 1990s, FRC helped draft the Defense of Marriage Act and defended the right of the military and the Boy Scouts to adhere to traditional morality. Over the years, FRC has produced a mountain of meta-research papers that debunk...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is pressing the IRS to investigate the tax-exempt status of leftist group Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization that has been mired in scandal. Cotton argues that a series of recent reports regarding the leftist group’s patently political activities are troubling, and in a letter to the head of the IRS provided to Breitbart News exclusively ahead of its public release questions whether these actions warrant removal of the group’s status as a nonprofit organization. “I am writing to urge you to investigate whether the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) should retain its classification as...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has hired Tina Tchen, a former Obama staffer who recently tried to intervene in the Jussie Smollett hate-crime-hoax case on the actor’s behalf, to conduct a review of workplace-harassment allegations in the wake of co-founder Morris Dees’s firing.Last Thursday, the SPLC announced Dees’s dismissal for unspecified violations of company policy and said that Tchen, who served as chief of staff to Michelle Obama and now runs a firm focused on “workplace cultural compliance,” would conduct a “comprehensive assessment of our internal climate and workplace practices.”That announcement came one day after the Chicago Sun Times obtained communications between...

    Some employees at the Southern Poverty Law Center say the legendary civil rights nonprofit group suffers from a "systemic culture of racism and sexism within its workplace." The SPLC, which has been on the front line of the fight against racial inequality and injustice in the United States since 1971, has been thrust into chaos after allegations over its treatment of minority and female employees. The claims have been followed by changes in its leadership and a company-wide review. CNN spoke with three current employees of the organization who talked on condition of anonymity because of fears over possible retribution....

    The last few days’ top news stories all focus on massive hoaxes. First there was the revelation that the entire Trump-Russia collusion narrative was a hoax of historic proportions. Then we learned the Jussie Smollett hate-crime hoax had entered a new phase, with 16 felony charges against him dropped after a secret, Obama-linked deal was cut with the Soros-funded Chicago prosecutor. We also learned the Southern Poverty Law Center, literally a giant hoax machine – for decades defaming decent, conservative, Christian organizations and individuals as “white supremacists” and hateful “extremists” – was self-destructing after revelations its top leaders are guilty...

    Amid a departure of top executives at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a new report details allegations of sexual misconduct and racial discrimination against those very individuals at the progressive nonprofit which frequently has targeted conservative groups. A report from the New York Times on Monday detailed several complaints by both current and former employees that indicated a “climate of intolerance” in the workplace -- complaints including sexual harassment and a lack of diversity based on race and gender. **SNIP** On Friday, SPLC President Richard Cohen announced he would be stepping down from the civil rights organization amid the...

    Liberal billionaire George Soros bankrolled a massive "hate crime" database that is used by more than 100 media partners—including Google News Labs, New York Times Opinion, and ABC News—to report alleged hate crimes, according to tax documents and interviews. The database, launched following the election of President Donald Trump, is "unverified" and receives stories of alleged "hate" from the likes of the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization currently in upheaval over charges of institutional racism perpetrated by its recently fired co-founder, Morris Dees, and the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim civil rights group that was...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center – the “vicious left-wing attack dog” used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify “hate groups” – is unraveling. A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims – with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism,” the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization’s legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday. Cohen had been with the organization 33 years and was one of its most prominent figures. At 5:03 p.m. Friday, Cohen...

    There was a time when the “Southern Poverty Law Center” (SPLC) was widely respected for its courageous work. Oppressive hate groups like the KKK had no greater enemy than the SPLC. The SPLC stood for justice, for righteousness, for the rights of the poor and the downtrodden. As expressed on the SPLC website, “Alabama lawyer and businessman Morris Dees sympathized with the plight of the poor and the powerless. The son of an Alabama farmer, he had witnessed firsthand the devastating consequences of bigotry and racial injustice. Dees decided to sell his successful book publishing business to start a civil...

    The head of the Southern Poverty Law Center on Friday announced that he is stepping down, the latest high-profile departure from the watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups. Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen sent an email to staff saying that he would be stepping down from his leadership role at the organization. The organization last week fired founder and prominent civil rights attorney Morris Dees for unspecified reasons. “Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a “highly profitable scam” that “never lived up to the values it espoused,” according to former SPLC staffer Bob Moser. The New Yorker on Thursday published a scathing essay from Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accusing the left-wing non-profit of “ripping off donors” while turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks. The SPLC fired co-founder Morris Dees on March 13 over unspecified conduct issues. The SPLC announced Dees’ firing after roughly two dozen SPLC employees previously signed a letter to the organization’s leadership expressing their...

    Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a civil rights watchdog that has devolved into a far-left smear factory, fired its co-founder, Morris Dees, and announced a workplace culture investigation. This drastic action highlighted the organization's scandalous history on race. Despite its fervent battle for civil rights, the SPLC has long been criticized for not elevating black employees into leadership, and complaints about this issue loomed large in the Dees firing. Glen Allen, a Baltimore lawyer who sued the SPLC last year for defaming him and destroying his career, predicted that the workplace investigation "will find what many of...

    LANSING, Michigan, March 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Michigan’s lesbian attorney general and the state’s Department of Civil Rights director are investigating organizations the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has deemed “hate groups.” One such group in their state is Catholic news service Church Militant, which reports on clerical sexual misdeeds and advocates adherence to the teachings of the Catholic Church. The SPLC has labeled Church Militant “anti-LGBT.” The law center lumps pro-life, pro-marriage, and Christian organizations in with neo-Nazis and the KKK as “hate groups.” Its “hate map” inspired a man to attempt a shooting rampage at the Family...
