    No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action. "We haven't filed anything against the SPLC, but I think a number of organizations have been considering filing lawsuits against the SPLC, because they have been doing to a lot of organizations exactly what they did...

    For a left-wing civil rights organization purportedly dedicated to protecting minorities, the George Soros-supported Southern Poverty Law Center spends a lot of time peddling hatred against minorities, or at least those minorities who dare to step off the liberal plantation. ake Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformist who’s earned a reputation for telling it how it is about the millennia-old religion. While speaking on London’s LBC radio station last year, for instance, he boldly demanded a caller “stop pretending” violence and terrorism have nothing to do with Islam. During a discussion on Sky News earlier this year, he likewise slammed the...

    "Antifa" is to violence what the Southern Poverty Law Center is to words. In short, it is a hate group on the left.The SPLC smears individuals and groups it differs with by labeling them as some form of "hater": "racist," "white supremacist," "extremist" and the like. That it is cited and even relied upon by The New York Times, Facebook, Amazon, Google, CNN and others, and that Apple gave the organization a million dollars, is testimony to the moral state of mainstream media and corporate culture in America today.Were the SPLC not quoted and used as a source, there would...
  • SPLC Apologizes, Pays Settlement to Islamic Reformer It Wrongly Labeled ‘Anti-Muslim Extremist’

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has reached a settlement with liberal Islamic reformer Maajid Nawaz and his organization, the Quilliam Foundation, for wrongly including them on its now-defunct list of “anti-Muslim extremists.” The SPLC announced Monday that it has agreed to pay Nawaz and Quilliam $3.375 million “to fund their work to fight anti-Muslim bigotry and extremism.” The settlement was the result of a lawsuit Nawaz filed in April over his inclusion on the SPLC’s “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.”......."

    Hat Tip: Robert M "What is truly macabre is the behavior of sections of Diaspora Jewish communities. Fringe groups in both the U.S. and U.K. have been publicly demonstrating in favor of the Hamas killers and even holding surreal recitations of the mourner’s kaddish, naming the individuals killed. This is the equivalent of reciting kaddish for dead SS soldiers who shared the same genocidal objectives against the Jews as Hamas – truly a chilul Hashem, a desecration of God’s name.Even beyond this demented fringe, many Jews are publicly expressing grief at the death of the terrorists. Yet they do not...

    At least eight people associated with white nationalist groups are running for state or federal office around the country this year, NBC News reported this week, citing data from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The candidates, which NBC noted represent more white nationalists running that any other election in recent memory, include some who are pushing for segregating neighborhoods in their communities as part of their campaign platform. NBC News correspondent Morgan Radford spoke with several such candidates for the report broadcast Thursday, including Arthur Jones, a former member of the American Nazi Party who is vying for a...

    Organizations and individuals entrenched in the Obama administration's pro-Iran echo chamber are engaging in a new plot to defame top White House national security officials, a campaign that mirrors a successful effort by these same groups to oust former Trump administration National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, according to sources familiar with the new effort. After targeting Flynn, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former senior Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka, organizations closely tied to the Obama administration are setting their sites on National Security Adviser John Bolton and his newly formed team. Recent attacks by groups such as the Council on...

    On Monday the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) decided to cozy up to the murderers and rapists of the violent MS-13 gang, telling the White House in a tweet that it’s “racist” and “dehumanizing” for the administration to refer to them as “animals.” “It is unacceptable for such racist, dehumanizing language to now be repeated 10 times on the White House website in a document that speaks for America,” the group said in a tweet.
  • Racism rampant at California city council meetings on sanctuary policies (puke)

    For the past two months, a campaign orchestrated by national anti-immigrant hate group the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and its legal arm the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) has mobilized a small but vocal group of activists hell-bent on pushing city council members in Orange County, and other parts of southern California, to take a stance against the state’s sanctuary policies. IRLI enlisted support from cities to attach their name to an amicus brief it filed in opposition to California’s Values ACT SB54, a law preventing state and local law enforcement agencies from using money or personnel to...

    In response to Spotify’s newly launched Hate Content and Hateful Conduct public policy, women’s advocacy group UltraViolet is calling on the streaming service to widen its net beyond R. Kelly and XXXTentacion, which were the first acts to see their music removed from promotional playlists. UltraViolet, a national organization working on a range of issues including reproductive rights, healthcare, economic security, violence and racial justice, published an open letter Monday to Spotify head Daniel Ek, applauding a recent decision to pull Kelly and XXXTentacion’s music from playlists and algorithmic recommendations. However, the group is also imploring that the policy be...

  • Southern Poverty Law Center now has half a billion dollars to attack conservatives

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 03, 2018 | Matthew Vadum
    The Southern Poverty Law Center is stockpiling close to half a billion dollars to blacklist conservatives, slander its critics, and redefine what “hate” means in America today. As the Capital Research Center first reported , the SPLC disclosed in a new IRS filing that it had $477 million in assets in October after taking in an astounding $136 million that year. The year before, it had total revenue of only $58 million, which means total revenue rose by over 200 percent in a single year. There has been no comparable leap in bigotry or poverty. Hate crime statistics don’t reflect...

    By bizarrely going after Sam Harris, Majid Nawaaz, and others, the once venerable organization has abandoned its core mission, focusing instead on dirty partisan politics Shortly after the election of Donald Trump in November of 2016, a lot of people I knew wrote biggish checks to the Southern Poverty Law Center. They weren’t alone: According to tax filings, the group took in $136 million last year alone, bringing its total assets to a whopping half-a-billion dollars.This surge in the organization’s popularity makes sense: The SPLC, after all, is the group that had once, nearly four decades ago, protected Vietnamese shrimpers...

    Amazon.com has removed a Catholic group from its donation feature. The AmazonSmile Participation Agreement states that certain categories of organizations are not eligible to participate in AmazonSmile. We rely on the Southern Poverty Law Center to determine which charities are in certain ineligible categories. You have been excluded from the AmazonSmile program because the Southern Poverty Law Center lists Saint Benedict Center Inc in an ineligible category.

    If its balance sheet is any indication, Donald Trump’s presidency has been very good for the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC's already impressive endowment grew a staggering 35 percent in fiscal year 2017 to more than $432 million. Including operating funds, total assets topped $477 million as of October 31, 2017. Total revenues and gains in fiscal 2017 exceeded $180 million, more than triple the organization's expenses for the year, of just under $60 million. The SPLC has long been considered a fundraising powerhouse, but 2017's take was mind boggling by any standard. Donations were up 164 percent over...

    Southern Poverty Law Center is regarded by many journalists as the gold standard for information on hate groups. But its record is dotted with inconsistencies—it has itself engaged in hateful discourse against some traditionally minded organizations: branding the Family Research Council a hate group is one glaring example. Not as well known are its more subtle ways of emitting bias. SPLC issued a statement about a federal court judge’s decision against Matt Hale, an imprisoned neo-Nazi who sued the Federal Bureau of Prisons for violating his religious rights; prison facilities monitored his mail ~ U.S. District Judge Marcia Krieger of...

    I received today an email with an attached so-called “legal letter” from a senior producer at Al Jazeera Media Network. One need look no further than the letterhead, “Confidential” marking and warnings at the bottom of that attachment to recognize that, quite apart from its content, this email is intended to threaten and intimidate. It asked for my prompt written response to several allegations about me and my organization, the Center for Security Policy. Those allegations are clearly defamatory. These unfounded charges say more about the purported “experts” who have made them than about those they are smearing. According to...
