True. But their “hate group” list apparently made the LGBTs more confident and relentless in their attacks.
It’s a vicious triangle. Leftist orgs like Open Society and the Tides Foundation pump money into SPLC, to agitate the LGBTs and to harass conservatives.
What is needed is an equivalent organization, called, for example, the Citizens Un-American Activities Committee (CUAC, a play on words of HUAC), that would publicize the whole litany of anti-Americanism by both the left and the government.
So when an organization like the SPLC or NAACP called some conservative group a “hate group” or “racist”, the SPLC and NAACP would in turn be called “un-American” or “anti-American”.
And in all fairness, CUAC should also condemn government actions that are unconstitutional and oppressive, like the ever increasing paranoid security apparatus.
