We fought the Southern Poverty Law Center for years in our local school district. The schools were utilizing SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance series. All it taught was that capitalism is bad, socialism-communism is good, and whitey is the cause of all of the world’s problems. We only succeeded in removing the program from the schools when it was discovered that one of the facilitators had an arrest record. They had a huge push after 911 teaching the kids that America is intolerant and basically deserved the events of that day. The material handed out in the classrooms had a picture of a young (white) child in a KKK get up and went on about oppression of Muslims in the USA. In other words the SPLC is still spreading its lies.
“and whitey is the cause of all of the worlds problems”
I remember a few years ago when SPLC bowed to pressure and added the Nation of Islam to their list of hate groups. The addition of the NOI came with a long, rambling disclaimer on how all “minority” groups that had a “hateful” message were “forced” to do so in response to white racism and that it really wasn’t their fault.
