    So much for taking America’s “fake news” problem seriously. Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, there’s been an abundance of hand-wringing over the “fake news” that supposedly is rampant on social media. Yet missing has been any kind of serious searching among the mainstream media about whether it could learn any lessons from this election—and whether reporters and editors are holding themselves accountable to their supposed values of objectivity and rigorous reporting. And a new “study” presents Exhibit A as to why the mainstream media should reconsider its own practices.

    Good grief: A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center showed children have been negatively impacted by the election, with kids' classroom climate suffering drastically. The Monday report, which surveyed 10,000 teachers across the U.S., found many students were experiencing higher anxiety and there were more reported cases of "verbal harassment, the use of slurs and derogatory language, and disturbing incidents involving swastikas, Nazi salutes and Confederate flags." According to the survey's findings, nine out of 10 educators saw a negative impact on students' mood and behavior after the election. Eight out of 10 educators reported higher anxiety by...

    Civil rights groups called for President-elect Donald Trump to forcefully and publicly denounce racism and bigotry, pointing to more than 860 bias-related incidents recorded in the 10 days following his Nov. 8 victory. The group has not independently verified each claim but said it has weeded out any reported hoaxes.
  • The Trump Effect: The Impact of The 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation's Schools

    In the first days after the 2016 presidential election, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project administered an online survey to K–12 educators from across the country. Over 10,000 teachers, counselors, administrators and others who work in schools have responded. The survey data indicate that the results of the election are having a profoundly negative impact on schools and students. Ninety percent of educators report that school climate has been negatively affected, and most of them believe it will have a long-lasting impact. A full 80 percent describe heightened anxiety and concern on the part of students worried about...

    To combat an alarming surge in racism, hate and bullying in the schools post-election, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom called on local and county superintendents to act immediately to establish a zero-tolerance policy for hate in the schools and create a clearinghouse to report such incidents statewide. The Southern Poverty Law Center has tracked reported hate crime and racist incidents statewide and nationwide from Nov. 9 to Nov. 16. During that period California had more than 80 reported incidents, the most overall of any state in the country, Newsom said.

And he referenced a phrase… he said he’s going to ‘drain the swamp,’” Lenz noted. “#DrainTheSwamp’ was a meme, a Twitter hashtag that grew– exploded, really– after Donald Trump came forward with allegations it was a rigged election....

Converts, it says, now number between two and seven million.

And anyone who is amazed at Trump's temerity in putting a white nationalist into the White House has gravely misunderstood the power of racism in fueling his campaign, and the desire to "turn back the clock" to a time when white men supposedly ruled supreme. Above all, they've forgotten the cardinal rule of Trumpworld: attachment to profit...

But a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center suggests that the acrimony from the campaign trail may be having a broader, negative effect on society — particularly in American schools. An online survey of 2,000 educators – one that the center notes wasn’t scientific – found half saying they witnessed an increase in “uncivil political discourse” during the 2016 campaign. Two-thirds of respondents said their students – particularly Muslims, immigrants and children of immigrants – openly expressed...

    Step one: Find an expert with an impressive-sounding academic title to legitimize shoddy advocacy propaganda. Meet Brian Levin. He's the one-man band behind something called the "Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism" at California State University, San Bernardino. The "center" (that is: Levin) claims to be "nonpartisan" and "objective." But he is a former top staffer of the militant, conservative-smearing Southern Poverty Law Center, which was forced to apologize earlier this year after including famed black neurosurgeon and GOP 2016 candidate Ben Carson on its "extremist watch list" of hate groups. At SPLC, Levin infamously posited that the...

    In a January 5th 1996 teletype to select FBI field offices, FBI Director Louis Freeh revealed that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the far-left group founded by civil rights lawyer Morris Dees, had an informant living in Elohim City, a white supremacist compound whose inhabitants have been closely linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. The Freeh teletype also revealed that Tim McVeigh, executed in 2001 for the murder of 168 people in Oklahoma City, had telephoned Elohim City asking that German national Andreas Strassmeir provide more assistance in completing the bomb which devastated the Alfred P. Murrah building. The...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), as stated by many of its liberal donors, spends lavishly on its founder Morris Dees, accomplishes little, and pays out far more money on self-promotion than it gives to all of its charity causes put together. A great deal of money comes to the SPLC via the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), a listing of charities that is given annually to federal civil servants and military personnel. The SPLC makes a great deal of money by imposing white guilt on its target donors. Not advertised in the Combined Federal Campaign is the fact that the...

    There are any number of liberal organizations that have fractured the rules of civility in order to advance the socialist agenda. Of these Obama aligned, leftist groups, none is more perverse in its grotesque slanders and misleading claims than the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees, Julian Bond and Joseph Levin. According to his law partner Millard Fuller, Dees’ only interest was to make money, a lot of it, and he didn’t care how. As cases in point, in 1958 Dees served as the state campaign manager for McDonald Gallion, a segregationist...

    I have often written about the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as it seems that this corrupt, left-wing organization wants the American people to believe that around every corner there are those who look to spread evil rumors about the groups and agendas that the SPLC holds above reproach. And now this hate-filled organization and its money-grubbing founder, Morris Dees, whose slander against conservatives and Christians was mentioned in a federal terrorism case, have released another “Intelligence Report.” Who are the “conspirators” that the SPLC wants investigated? Anyone to the right of Obama. There are countless individuals and organizations in...

    Delivering remarks on domestic terrorism at an event co-sponsored by the George Washington University’s program on extremism and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Assistant Attorney General John P. Carlin announced on Wednesday the creation of a new position within the Department of Justice (DOJ) aimed at investigating violent extremism. “We are here to talk about combating domestic terrorism, which the FBI has explained as ‘Americans attacking Americans based on U.S.-based extremist ideologies.’ The threat ranges from individuals motivated by anti-government animus, to eco-radicalism and racism,” stated Carlin. He continued, “Homegrown violent extremists can be motivated by any viewpoint on...

    King Herod, (President Obama), has the US government teaming up with activists to establish a domestic terrorism 'czar'. So who are these 'domestic terrorists' that Obama's Department of Justice 'watching,' and who are they using to do this 'watching'? Answer: The disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and they are ordered to watch us, the Christians. Assistant Attorney-General John Carlin, head of the Department of Justice's (DoJ) National Security division, announced the deal with the SPLC on Wednesday. On their top agenda are folks like us: Shoebat.com. And what are they watching us for? Well, just yesterday the SPLC posted:...
