  • 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...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — At Chick-fil-A, the politically correct handwriting was on the wall for a long time, but most of us missed it. Until now. Just four days since the popular chicken restaurant’s infamous announcement about reprioritizing its corporate giving, and despite the launch of a counter-narrative by conservatives Rev. Franklin Graham, Erik Erickson, and others, it’s clear that Chick-fil-A (CFA) has been on a troubling leftward trajectory for quite some time. The revelations are stunning. Chick-fil-A evolving into a pipeline of cash to leftist causes CFA fans wouldn’t have been caught by surprise if they...

    If the last 24 hours have proven anything about Chick-fil-A, it's this: It was never about the chicken. For millions of Americans, there was a much deeper significance behind every decision to pull in the parking lot and walk through those doors. It wasn't about the menu. It wasn't even about the service. It was that every time someone ate there, they were making a cultural statement. Chick-fil-A was a business, yes. But it was also a giant rebuttal of everything the bullies stood for. Until it wasn't.

    Washington Examiner ^ | September 19, 2019 | Nihal Krishan
    House Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee said on Thursday that over 60 alleged hate groups, mostly socially conservative organizations, anti-immigration entities, and religious groups should be stripped of their tax-exempt status. (5/5): These remarks are vile and only work to perpetuate hate crimes and stir division. There is no reason the U.S. government should continue to subsidize groups like these – Ways & Means Dems are shining a light on this issue today. — Ways & Means Committee (@WaysMeansCmte) September 19, 2019 Some of the bigger organizations on the list include the fundamentalist Protestant group American Family Association,...

    On Tuesday, multiple Republican congressmen ripped into Google for listing the far-Left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a "trusted flagger" on its platform YouTube. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) ripped into Google CEO Sundar Pichai for trusting an organization that brands conservative and Christian groups "hate groups" along with the Ku Klux Klan. "You have a trusted flagger, you had indicated, called the Southern Poverty Law Center," Gohmert told Pichai. "The Southern Poverty Law Center really has stirred up more hate than about any other group I know." Gohmert referenced the 2012 terrorist attack against...

    When the stunned political class woke up to a world in which Donald Trump was president, plans began almost immediately over what they would do when they held power again. Even civility and basic human decency could wait until left-leaning leaders gained control of the country, opined Hillary Clinton. This culture clash was on full display during the confirmation process of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, but those saying that the Supreme Court controversy is the lever motivating the electorate in the midterms are missing the bigger picture.The issues that animated some of Trump's most dedicated voters leading to the 2016 presidential upset, which were under the...

    Being conservative is a dangerous business these days. Congressman Andy Harris (R-Md.) is the latest Republican to find that out, Capitol Police say. A clash over marijuana policy outside Dr. Harris's office turned violent when a group of protestors stormed into Harris's office and assaulted him. Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery was there and tweeted that Congressman Harris was "trying to hold his office door closed but was not successful." The demonstrators, she insisted, "were smoking weed."Across town, officials were busy investigating at least two packages of ricin that had been sent to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Admiral John...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Monday morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new religious liberty task force in the Department of Justice (DOJ) to defend religious freedom as laid out in last October's memorandum. In his remarks, Sessions referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a threat to religious liberty, suggesting the new task force may investigate or target the left-wing smear group. "A dangerous movement, undetected by many, is now challenging and eroding our great tradition of religious freedom," Sessions declared, adding that this movement "must be confronted and defeated." He also lamented that "one group can actively...

    The Family Research Council (FRC) said in a statement Tuesday that the nomination of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State will enhance the administration’s goal of a return to “American values and principles” and make support for human rights and religious freedom a priority. “President Trump has been an agent of change in Washington,” said FRC president Tony Perkins in a press statement. “It is hard to identify another federal agency that is in more need of change than the State Department, which has historically and consistently been at cross purposes with American values and principles. Mike Pompeo is a...

    Falsely accusing opponents with hate is a devilish tool of the anti-Christian crew. Given its prominence in current public discourse, one would think that hate, not love, is a many-splendored thing. The perfectly good word, which oozes out of every media pore, is now so overused that it means next to nothing. Every time you turn around, someone is accused of "hate" merely for expressing disagreement. This is not just a matter of semantics. It's serious. When you cheapen a word, it discourages honest discussion and leads to more confusion and conflict, which is how the devil likes it. We...

On the contrary, he said, comparing Bannon to Obi-Wan Kenobi in the final scene of Star Wars: A New Hope:“It’s like when Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi are dueling on the Death Star and Obi-Wan the master Jedi says, ‘If you strike me down now I will be more powerful...

    In a Friday address to hundreds of enthusiastic Values Voter Summit participants, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows equated some members of Congress to “dud” shotgun shells, declaring that those who don’t get behind President Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda should be sent home.“We need to anticipate the battle that is still raging on the streets of Washington, D.C. in this place that they call the swamp,” said the congressman. The crowd cheered as Chairman Meadows said that draining the swamp “includes every single member of the House and Senate. If they’re not willing to do what they promised on their...

    A lesbian police officer might have helped save his life, but House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana is still planning to speak at a conference for an anti-gay group. Scalise will address the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C. The FRC is an anti-abortion, anti-gay conservative group and lobbying organization. FRC’s President Tony Perkins wrote a memo about the upcoming appearance, referencing the June shooting at a Virginia baseball field where Scalise and other Republicans were practicing for an upcoming charity game. The congressman was shot in the hip. “There were times...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has a list of "Extremist Hate Groups" on their website (https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-h…/extremist-files/groups). To be clear, most belong there as they have earned the reputation of being historically hateful and criminally violent. Others listed are merely defenders of Christian family values and not at all hateful. I have attached the attack blurb the SPLC has listed on their website alongside the actual "about us" listed on the accused's website. The following three groups are LAWFULLY educating the public on issues of historic family values and are not at all engaged in any activity which is unlawful nor...

    August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — In the vast array of leftist lies, one of the most dangerous is that groups and people defending historic Judeo-Christian sexual morality are somehow guilty of "hate." The main perpetrator of that “big lie” these days is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has turned smearing and demonizing social conservatives fighting the homosexual-transgender agenda into a very profitable business. The SPLC is attempting to pull off one of the nastiest and most audacious “bait-and-switch” propaganda coups in history — equating the Christian-conservative led effort to defend biblical morality against the aggressive LGBTQ lobby with...

    Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center. “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared. The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute. American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.” Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.” “Liberty...

    It’s hard to believe American teenagers could be arrested for delivering a prayer, but that’s the kind of nation we live in — a nation that was fundamentally transformed by the previous presidential administration. In 2011, the class president at Hampton High School in Tennessee wanted to deliver a pray at graduation. The principal issued an edict that any child who attempted to pray would be stopped, escorted from the building by police and arrested. That incident was one of dozens included in a stunning new Family Research Council report documenting a significant upsurge in government hostility to religion. Since...

    "LGBT agenda will be unhinged." A new religious liberty executive order protecting Christians from the onslaught of former community organizer Barack Obama's radical LGBT agenda may be in the works soon, says former Donald Trump advisor Ken Blackwell. “My anticipation is that we will see an Executive Order and it will be more than window dressing,” Blackwell, senior fellow for Human Rights and Constitutional Governance at the Family Research Council, told LifeSiteNews, predicting that Obama's “aggressive LGBT agenda will be unhinged." “We have a great plan to attack the administrative state,” he said. “We will have to be very meticulous...
