Skip to comments.Why Is the Southern Poverty Law Center Targeting Liberals?
Posted on 08/25/2017 12:24:02 PM PDT by Mrs. Don-o
Since the violence in Charlottesville, when white supremacists left one young woman dead and 19 others injured, the Southern Poverty Law Center has hit the jackpot. They [are] set to receive millions of dollars in donations from some of the nations deepest of pockets. Apple pledged $1 million. JP Morgan Chase & Co.: half a million. George and Amal Clooney even got in on the action, promising to donate another $1 million.
But is donating money to the S.P.L.C. the best way to combat this[racist] poison? I think not. If Tim Cook and Jamie Dimon had done their due diligence, they would know that the S.P.L.C. is an organization that has lost its way, smearing people who are fighting for liberty and turning a blind eye to an ideology and political movement that has much in common with Nazism.
I am a black woman, a feminist and a former Muslim who has consistently opposed political violence. The price for expressing my beliefs has been high: I must travel with armed security at all times. My friend and collaborator Theo van Gogh was murdered in broad daylight.
Yet the S.P.L.C. has the audacity to label me an extremist, including my name in a Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists that it published on its website last October.
Muslims today cannot freely debate the role of their religion in most Muslim-majority countries, where the charges of heresy or apostasy can mean a death sentence or a lynch mob. Here in the West, too, free discussion of Islam is getting harder not least because Islamic organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations pounce on any criticism of Islam, branding it hate speech, the modern word for heresy.... We need to find more trustworthy and deserving partners to work with than the S.P.L.C.

Liberal in the classical sense of the word?
The reason is simple. Radical Muslims and radical leftists are now allied and joined at the hip. Since she’s the opponent of radical Islam, the SPLC has to smear her to help their misogynist, intolerant partners.
“racist bitch ( or maybe transgender)”
What are you talking about?
“Lost their way” like hell.
The SPLC has been a leftwing hate group since Day One.
There used to be a no borders faction here at FR that would post SPLC material. They were for Bush’s amnesty and labeled anyone who objected as racists, xenophobes, nativists, the usual. They got a lot of border patriots banned. That worm sure has turned.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali correctly points out that Islam in its funding and practice is intolerant, harsh towards non-believers and tolerates no dissent among its followers. She warns the west that Islam uses western free speech and tolerance to worm its way into our society but once here will in numbers will put us all under Shira law.
Your comment is vile and grossly uninformed. Best to keep your vulgarity to yourself, especially when you are ignorant.
Though, to their credit, one of their staff, a “Susy Buchanan”, wrote a splendid review of one of Travis McGee’s books:
Inadvertent, though, I’m sure.
She exposes the SPLC goons, and has the savvy to do it in the pages of the New York Times.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali gets stamped on, shut down, shouted down, at places like Berkeley where the Left profoundly resents her intelligence and thus hates her guts. And yet she risks her life to fight Sharia in public. Every. Single. Day.
Better be careful who you call a bitch.
She must have made up for that with her title, ‘A Nativist’s Paranoid Vision’
The SPLC is a terrorist organization.
Yes, they are. They side with jihadists. And they smear as “fascist” everybody to the right of Nancy Pelosi.
Now since it was deleted I wonder what he said.
thanks for clarifying.
Insufferably vile. Inconceivably ignorant. I'm glad it was promptly removed by Admin Moderator.
Walk out on Islam and screaming lefties will have a kitten
