Leftist Hate-Lister SPLC Gets National Scrutiny
FRC Action ^ | August 26, 2020 | Lela Gilbert

It's well known that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has a long record of hate-listing Christian and conservative organizations that do not agree with their ultra-liberal point of view. They have particularly focused on Family Research Council for strongly defending life issues and for disputing the LGBT's radical agenda.

But this week, some very positive steps were taken to combat SPLC's unjust attacks. First, fifteen members of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee wrote a letter to Jeff Bezos, founder and president of Amazon. They voiced their objections to Amazon's reliance on SPLC guidelines regarding which organizations should benefit from "Amazon Smile" charitable donations.

At the same time, the Republican National Committee (RNC) passed an important resolution, refuting the "Legitimacy of the Southern Poverty Law Center to Identify Hate Groups."

On Tuesday's Washington Watch, Tyler O'Neil, senior editor of PJ Media was a guest on Washington Watch. O'Neil has also authored an important book on Southern Poverty Law Center, and Tony Perkins asked him about these recent developments.

"The resolution was really heartening." O'Neil said. "I was glad to see that the RNC took the Obama Biden administration to task for having the Department of Homeland Security use information from the Southern Poverty Law Center. And the statement said the policy is a radical organization. And the federal government should not view it as a legitimate foundation equipped to provide actionable information to DHS or any other government agency."

“fifteen members of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee wrote a letter to Jeff Bezos, founder and president of Amazon.”

Bezos to his secretary: “Guffaw! Put in the trash along with all the other strongly worded letters”.

The SPLC denoted American military veterans as a domestic threat.

My father was a federal employee. He said that early in career, he had to deal with congressional correspondence.

The rule was to file it, unless it came from a committee chairman, which got forwarded up the ladder.

Budget appropriations, dontcha’ know.

The SPLC is a legal racketeering outfit and should be dealt with under RICO.

So what would you suggest?
I mean, let’s pretend that you are in charge if something.
What would that something be? And then, what would YOU do?
