    This Should Cause a Ruckus

    Exclusive: Conservatives launch war on Southern Poverty Law Center, promotes 'terrorism'



    Over three dozen conservative representatives wrote in a letter to GuideStar, "The ‘hate group' list is nothing more than a political weapon targeting people it deems to be its political enemies." Among the signers: Eagle Forum, FRC, National Organization for Marriage, former Reagan Attorney General Edwin Meese, Heritage Foundation, Immigration Reform Law Institute, and Judicial Watch.

    The FRC memo directed supports to a video on the effort and listed several suggested tweets to use and a hashtag for the effort, #SPLCexposed:

    "Tune in on July 16th for D. James Kennedy Ministries' special exposing the SPLC (full show available online here beginning July 14th), then join us on July 17th for a social media campaign using the hashtag #SPLCexposed on Twitter and Facebook," it said.

    The SPLC had no immediate response.

    One of the suggested tweets references the FRC shooter Floyd Corkins:

    "@SPLCenter has been linked in federal court to convicted domestic terrorist Floyd Corkins. http://tws.io/2sYsPEx #SPLCexposed"

    Another noted the FBI's severing of ties to SPLC over domestic terror:

    "There's a reason the FBI distanced themselves w/ @splcenter. They're discredited & linked to terrorism: http://ow.ly/Miilg #SPLCexposed"
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Except that they didn't. The FBI removed all links to organizations outside of the federal government from the website of the civil rights division. That removed not only the SPLC but also organizations like the anti-defamation league.



    The SPLC certainly lost it's way when it moved away from its mission of fighting the clan in the courtroom to using its credibility to go on a crusade against everything conservative.

    ABC Smears Religious Conservatives Using Partisan SPLC's 'Hate Group' Label


    In an article shamelessly titled "Jeff Sessions addresses 'anti-LGBT hate group' but DOJ won't release his remarks," ABC uses an egregious label slapped on the Alliance Defending Freedom by the deeply partisan and increasingly wealthy and influential Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to paint those who believe in the traditional view of marriage and sexuality as an "anti-LGBT" hate group.

    ABC's use of the SPLC label to portray as "anti-LGBT" extremists those who push back against the Left's "sexual liberty" agenda and define marriage as between a man and a woman (in other words, define marriage in the same way Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama did a few short years ago) was noted by The American Conservative's Rob Dreher. The premise of the ABC hit-piece was based on the SPLC's "hate group" designation of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian, pro-religious freedom legal group.

    Here's the key passage from the story (emphasis added):

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered a speech to an alleged hate group at an event closed to reporters on Tuesday night, but the Department of Justice is refusing to reveal what he said.

    Sessions addressed members of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which was designated an “anti-LGBT hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2016, at the Summit on Religious Liberty at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, in Dana Point, California.

    The event promised to “bring together prominent legal advocates, scholars, cultural commentators, business executives and church leaders to examine the current state of religious freedom” and “develop legal and cultural strategies to allow freedom to flourish in the United States and around the world.”
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    How did SPLC get to be the authority on who is a "hate group", anyway? They are Orwellian in their pronouncements and it's time someone took them down, or at least sued them for defamation. Who made them boss of this stuff?

    Like Sharpton, Jackson and Farrakhan they nominated and elected themselves.

    Democrats - that started as a liberal group calling out the KKK in the 1970's - it expanded into anyone blacks then democrats in general disagreed with

    The right needs to create a counter organization as an antidote to this hate group. The left sure is good at organizing, the right, not so much.

    This is the SPLC:
    The reality is that the SPLC is a leftist hack advocacy group which picks and chooses what standards to apply to its labels, consistently turning a blind eye to leftist and pro-Democrat groups and individuals while targeting, often unfairly, their enemies on the right.

    National Review's Charles Cooke pressed the SPLC as to why they weren't tracking the Occupy Wall Street movement after a group affiliated with the movement plotted to blow up a bridge in Cleveland, Ohio. After a back-and-forth with a male representative from the SPLC, Cooke got the representative to admit: "We’re not really set up to cover the extreme Left."
    SPLC
    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?
