  • Who Gives the SPLC the Right to Designate Who is a Hater?

    Black & Blonde Media ^ | 7/16/17 | Black & Blonde Media
    Today, we have liberal groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center designating any group THEY choose as a "hate group" and once issued, the media, politicians, and others repeat that designation as if it has genuine validity. Exactly who is the arbiter of hate designations in the United States? Did the SPLC have to somehow qualify as to how to spot "hate" and assure their designations are 100% accurate and that partisanship is not used to politically smear one while looking the other way on a like-minded other?
  • ABC News: Christians Who Believe In The First Amendment Are A ‘Hate Group’

    07/13/2017 7:20:44 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 19 replies
    ABC News’ Pete Madden and Erin Galloway smeared Christians who believe the Bill of Rights secures religious liberty as a “hate group,” in an article this week headlined, “Jeff Sessions addresses ‘anti-LGBT hate group,’ but DOJ won’t release his remarks.” The lede of the story made it clear this was not just the work of a rogue headline writer but the failure of the reporters themselves: Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered a speech to an alleged hate group at an event closed to reporters on Tuesday night, but the Department of Justice is refusing to reveal what he said. First,...

    RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) — The atmosphere was tense inside a Richland County courtroom on Sunday when a man accused of leading Richland County deputies on a dramatic car chase had his first appearance before a judge. Bryan Martin, 22, is accused of initiating a high-speed chase through Columbia Saturday night with his 1-year-old daughter inside of the car. He faces several charges including child endangerment. Martin’s bond for the child endangerment charge was set by a judge at $100,000. Another bond was set at $3,000 for lesser charges including driving under suspension and simple possession of marijuana. The mother...

    The National Review ^ | July 5, 2017 | Robert VerBruggen
    There are good reasons not to confine the discussion to academic journals. In the latest issue of National Review, John McWhorter has a challenging and thought-provoking essay about the topic of race and IQ — specifically, about whether that topic should even be up for discussion in liberal-arts classrooms and in the media, as opposed to in scientific journals. He suggests not, as there is nothing to gain from discussing it. I read McWhorter’s essay with special interest because I have violated the norm he proposes. I have written about race and IQ on numerous occasions — and for a...

    The left has a problem. Americans are doing all the wrong things. They’re voting for Republicans, reading conservative sites and donating to conservative organizations. Something needs to be done about it. Something is being done. Post a conservative story on Facebook or search for it on Google and out pops Snopes, a partisan site, to warn you of wrongthinking. And, until recently, when you searched for a conservative organization on Guidestar, out popped the Southern Poverty Law Center to accuse you and it of being deplorable bigots. The Southern Poverty Law Center and Snopes are left-wing partisan groups with no...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | June 29, 2017 | Cliff Kincaid
    In a story about the Women's March on Washington, Time magazine published various "Portraits of Dissent" that included the views of a 17-year-old Calvert County, Maryland, high school senior with the words "Nasty, Queer, Bitch," marked on her cheeks and forehead. She was quoted as saying rights were in danger because of the Trump presidency and that Vice President Mike Pence "is someone that supports electroshocking people like me to turn us into people we aren’t." Pence never said any such thing. But where did this fictional and irrational claim come from? And why did Time publish this lie? A...

    When it comes to domestic terrorism in America, the numbers don’t lie: Far-right extremists are behind far more plots and attacks than Islamist extremists. There were almost twice as many terrorist incidents by right-wing extremists as by Islamist extremists in the U.S. from 2008 to 2016, according to a new report from The Nation Institute’s Investigative Fund and The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal. Looking at both plots and attacks carried out, the group tracked 201 terrorist incidents on U.S. soil from January 2008 to the end of 2016. The database shows 115 cases by right-wing extremists ― from white...

    The Politistick ^ | 06/14/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    Progressive terrorist James T. Hodgkinson, a former campaign worker for radical communist Bernie Sanders and his 2016 Democrat presidential campaign who attempted to assassinate Republican congressmen Wednesday at a GOP baseball practice, may have also been influenced by leading leftists in the media. According to Hodgkinson’s recently removed Facebook page, the “Bernie Bro,” was big fans of some of the most hateful progressive leftists on TV, including HBO’s John Oliver, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, former MSNBC host and current Putin propagandist on Russia Today (RT) host Ed Schultz, and HBO’s Bill Maher, all leading figures in what we call the Democrat...

    A “public charity” that purports to be “neutral” and provide online “nonprofit information to a broad audience at no cost to those users” has begun slamming Christian and other conservative organizations based on the recommendation of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which itself has been linked to domestic terror and once put Ben Carson on its list of “haters.”

    Last Thursday, I gave a lecture on the jihad threat at the Grand Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland. Shortly thereafter, a young Icelandic Leftist registered his disapproval of what I said by poisoning me. It happened after the event, when my security chief, the organizers of the event, and Jihad Watch writer Christine Williams, who had also been invited to speak, went with me to a local restaurant to celebrate the success of the evening.  At this crowded Reykjavik establishment, I was quickly recognized. A young Icelander called me by name, shook my hand, and said he was a big fan....

    The beauty of progressive nonprofits is that they can make their so-called objectives as vague and unachievable as possible, because if were to actually achieve their goals, they'd go out of business. We've also found that many of these liberal nonprofits, especially those who seek to redress issues like racism, are mostly led by whites who pay themselves handsomely. For a group that seeks to eradicate "bigotry", the Southern Poverty Law Center leadership itself is very, very white.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police arson detectives are investigating after they say someone left a threatening note and started a fire in front of an east Charlotte business. According to CMPD, officers responded to a fire at the Central Market store, located in the 5700 block of Albemarle Road, just before 10 p.m. Thursday. When officers arrived, Charlotte Fire Department crews advised them the fire had been contained to the front door and had already burned itself out when they reached the store. Police say one of the door’s windows was shattered after a suspect threw a rock through it...

    The Federation for American Immigration Reform, a pro-enforcement group, has an interesting and heavily documented case to make about the Southern Poverty Law Center. According to a formal legal complaint filed today with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) openly and repeatedly violated its non-profit tax status nearly 50 times during the 2016 presidential election cycle, participating in communication activities prohibited by the IRS in a "flagrant, continued and intentional campaign" targeting then-Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and other Republican candidates. The complaint was filed by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) through its legal affiliate...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center,a liberal civil rights organization, cited Stephen Bannon by name as a "purveyor of white nationalist propaganda" in a fundraising letter it sent soliciting help in fighting back against hate groups. Further, Dees says Trump's victory has been interpreted as a "license to harass and intimidate minorities."

    (Skip) Dees also started a nonprofit, which he named the Southern Poverty Law Center...He lives in luxury with his fifth wife and still runs the SPLC, which has used the mail-order model to amass a fortune. Its product line is an unusual one: For the past 47 years, Morris Dees has been selling fear and hate. (Skip) Today, the center boasts a treasury of more than $300 million, the richest civil rights group in the country. But with the Ku Klux Klan literally out of business, how was the SPLC able to frighten people into still donating? That’s where the...

    Under different circumstances, Alabama civil rights lawyer Morris S. Dees and American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray might have been colleagues, even pals. Instead, Murray found himself in a near-riot at Middlebury College after accepting a speaking invitation from Republican students at the Vermont school. Students and faculty galvanized by Dees’ political organization barred Murray from speaking. They shouted him down, chanted their own manifesto, and pulled fire alarms to prevent him from being heard. When Murray and Middlebury professor Allison Stanger tried to leave the building, they were followed by protesters who accosted them physically. The professor was grabbed...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center never lets facts intrude on its fantasies : By the time Donald Trump won the Republican primaries last year, the vile Southern Poverty Law Center was working overtime to manufacture incidents of “hate” to blame on Trump supporters. It didn’t matter that Trump supporters weren’t committing any so-called hate crimes. Fabricating hate crime hoaxes is what the SPLC does best.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, like Snopes, is one of those ridiculously sloppy institutions, that makes claims without bothering to prove them, while skating by on name recognition The Middlebury College attackers who shut down Charles Murray’s talk and assaulted a professor accompanying him drew their argument in part from a familiar source. They cited the Southern Poverty Law Center’s labeling of Murray as a racist. This isn’t the first time that the SPLC’s efforts of supposedly labeling “extremists” has led to violence against its targets. The worst such incident remains the attack on the Family Research Council headquarters by...

    Earlier today we told you how the SPLC said that bomb-threat suspect Juan Thompson’s actions were “not necessarily anti-Semitism” and were rather an attack on an ex-girlfriend. Alrighty then. Here are a few tweets we found on Thompson’s Twitter timeline. You be the judge… On Israel’s war in Gaza where he called Israel “terrorists” (photo is from a recent Israeli airstrike in Gaza):
