The tentacles of the progressive socialist left have become so far reaching and extensive in our nation. It’s not just what we see, such as the partisan absurdity of the liberal progressive media. There are so many groups that must be brought to the forefront and exposed for the dangerous threatening agenda they’re proliferating. Such a group is the infamous and oxymoronically titled Southern Poverty Law Center.
As reported by Family Security Matters, “There are many powerful forces operating today across the nation to divide the American people and silence opposing views. One of the most active of these efforts is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
There are two very serious reasons why the SPLC is in many ways more dangerous than other organizations that are fueling the flames of the far left radicals who use violence and lies to stop honest political debate.
First, the SPLC has contracts with the federal government, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), serving as advisors to help define what a domestic terrorist or hate group is, even helping to write official policy for this agency of our government. Here are just a few examples:
• In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” It targeted conservative groups that supported local rule over federal control. And it singled out groups that opposed abortion or illegal immigration.
• Two weeks later, DHS issued a Domestic Extremism Lexicon to define Right wing extremists = those who are concerned over the economy, had antagonism toward the Obama Administration or oppose the UN.
• According to these reports and many more, the list of potential terrorists, according to these reports and many more, included anyone who voted for Ron Paul for president, for example.
These reports were basically written by the Southern Poverty Law Center! And they were sent to law enforcement agencies across the nation. Soon after the issuing of these reports police department nationwide could be observed providing bulletins to their officers to be on the watch for dangerous right wing activity. In 2010 DHS organized a “Countering Violent Extremist Working Group.” Its purpose is to teach local law enforcement how to counter terrorism. It was basically the root of militarizing local police forces. Serving on this “advisory group” was Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society if North America, who has been accused of funding terrorist organizations. Also serving as an advisor to this group was Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The conclusion of this report is that conservative organizations and spokesmen are possibly bigger domestic terror threats than ISIS! The SPLC also runs the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center which issues official certification to police groups all over the country for fighting “hate” groups, i.e. Right wing groups. And it is funded by the Department of Homeland Security!”
Why is this organization allowed to have any influence into the policies of our federal government? We recently shared a story about the SPLC who seemed to have an issue posting Antifa on its official “hate list.” And yours truly has been a target of SPLC — just last year they publicized their angst about my addressing the Russian Jewish Community Foundation in Boston…why? What business does my addressing a Russian Jewish group in Boston have to do with southern poverty? Nothing.
The SPLC has misrepresented itself, and we need to immediately look into its funding, and the current administration needs to cut any and all ties with this partisan far left group. What they’re doing is abjectly criminal, no different from an inquisition-type court that decries individuals as “hate groups” who do not agree with a far left progressive socialist, or Islamo-fascist, agenda. The SPLC has defined “hate” and “justice” according to leftist dogma, and is disparaging individuals and groups publicly resulting in their being attacked and defunded.
“There is now a new trend moving across the nation that makes inclusion on this list dangerous to the very existence of those listed on it. Since President Trump’s election, the SPLC has ramped up its attacks on the Right with the clear purpose of destroying conservatives’ ability to speak out and counter SPLC’s assault on free speech and freedom of choice. Joining SPLC in these attacks on the Right are major corporations and social media giants like Facebook and Goggle. These corporations are, in fact, using the SPLC hate list to deny services to some organizations and individuals who are listed. Here are some examples:
• Discover Card, one of the nation’s leading credit card companies, denied a conservative group the use of their card to accept donations.• Quick Books cancelled a subscription of its product to a Christian organization because it opposed same sex marriage.
• PayPal has refused to let a conservative group use its service for fund raising.
• There have been several reports of social media giant Facebook censuring and banning conservative posts and pages.
• Google has taken steps to deny Internet searches of conservative websites.
Clearly, there’s a drive to deny conservative and Christian organizations the ability to exist in the market place or in social media.”
We already know, based on the Oregon appeals court decision, that the Christian belief in traditional marriage has been made criminal, resulting in financial penalty. Is this our America? How can it be that some shadow group like the SPLC can publish a “hate list,” based on their ideological definition, and have those listed, TARGETED, then find themselves penalized in the free market of our society. And who exactly are the fascists?
What amazes me more than anything else is that there is no a broad exposé on this group. There needs to be an investigation into its actions, financial support, and its alliances. This group should have no influence with our government. And how is it that such a group possesses the ability to adversely affect the operations of specific groups, and their targeting, just as with the IRS? Can any of you imagine if such a group existed on the constitutional conservative political spectrum side? Every single liberal progressive media outlet would be screaming from the rafters. Why are they silent? Simple, this is part of the grand progressive socialist strategy, and imagine if it was a President Hillary Clinton, the power the SPLC would be able to wield. And combine that with the left’s desire to disarm Americans — well, you know where this ends up.
It’s time we view the Southern Poverty Law Center as a domestic threat, a threat to our freedom of speech and expression. There should be NO organization in America that publishes a “hate list” based on a singular ideological definition of “hate.” Not agreeing with progressive socialism, Islamo-fascism/jihadism, and secular humanism is not hatred…and individuals and organizations should not be demonized and listed for believing as such. This is the danger of the progressive socialist left — they demand obedience, and if they don’t get it, they resort to coercion, intimidation, threats, and yes, violence…which is why the progressive socialists find comfort being allied with Islamo-fascists.
Is that assertion absurd? No, because “In 2015, the SPLC issued a “Hit List of U.S. Women Against Sharia Law.” The list targeted 12 leading conservative women who have specifically spoken out against radical Muslims and their authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism. The hit list not only named the women, but listed the cities where they reside. Anyone who has studied radical Islam clearly understands that this SPLC hit list put these women in grave danger of reprisal from Muslim extremists.”
So, will the #metoo crowd speak up? Doesn’t this lend itself to SPLC being an enabler of the “war on women” — unless being a woman is defined as being a progressive socialist who supports Islamo-fascists.
I want to leave you with the seminal question from this article: “The Southern Poverty Law Center labels any American who advocates that the U.S. Constitution is the law of the land as a potential domestic terrorist, dangerous to the nation. The question that must be answered is why the Department of Homeland Security and major corporations are working with them to make those attacks legitimate.”
My question is more direct, why is the Southern Poverty Law Center allowed to exist and publish a “hate list” that targets certain Americans, namely Christian constitutional conservatives? The SPLC is indicative of what we should all disavow.
