It reveals how the radical Left is trying to destroy organizations and individuals who are working to defend America’s families and our civil society.
Splcexposed.com specifically reveals the agenda of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an extreme Leftist operation that is swimming in money and deception.
Masquerading as a benevolent organization, the SPLC has adopted the intelligence and vocabulary of the big bully on the playground who engages in name-calling in order to isolate and intimidate anyone who won’t join his wicked little cabal.
You know the drill. The Leftists always resort to the “nanny, nanny boo boo” strategy when they know they can’t win a debate on the merits.
“Sexist! Racist! Bigot! HATER!” they scream.
SPLC has institutionalized the idiotic practice of name-calling and now is known for its well publicized list of so-called “haters.” But it is much more dangerous than the childish bully as they increasingly use mob-like tactics to blacklist and vilify those on the right who are among the most successful at preserving and protecting Judeo-Christian values and the Constitution.
The SPLC’s incendiary tactics have spawned at least two acts of shocking violence, the most recent being the attempt to mow down Republican congressmen on a baseball field, critically wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, whom the SPLC had profiled on its website.
Previously, a radical Leftist gunman entered the building of the Christian ministry Family Research Council and shot a building manager who miraculously still succeeded in disarming the thug before he could massacre the FRC staff. Now in prison, the domestic terrorist admitted that he targeted the ministry because the Southern Poverty Law Center had listed FRC as a hate group.
Founded in 1971, ostensibly to fight evil organizations like the KKK, the Southern Poverty Law Center marched ever further to the Left and figured out over the years that it only had to do one simple thing to defeat legitimate organizations and silence debate: list their political enemies as haters too.
The tactic is incredibly effective because 1) most Americans don’t look beyond the headline and see what people really stand for, 2) no one wants to be associated with a “hater,” and 3) the mass media, who are part of the ignorant bully’s sick little club, gleefully spread the lies far and wide.
The SPLC, vitriolic Leftist politicians and their media minions are engaged in an all-out war of lies on those who believe in free-market principles, that marriage is between one man and one woman, and that gender is part of our DNA.
And, boy, are they raking in the big bucks in the process. The SPLC is uber rich. In fact, its coffers have more than $320 million, much of which is stashed in off-shore accounts. Read that sentence again and tell me if it makes any sense for an organization that claims to be a champion for the poor.
In the description of their programs, the SPLC doesn’t focus on reducing poverty, putting food into the mouths of hungry children, or training the underprivileged in skills that can help them land jobs.
It does, however, talk a lot about its “three-pronged strategy to battle racial and social injustice.” But what does that include?
The first prong is “Fighting Hate.” It alone decides what constitutes “hate,” which it has chosen to be nothing more than disagreeing with the Leftist political agenda.
The second prong is “Teaching Tolerance.” In practice, that means brainwashing children into a extremist worldview by partnering with public schools to use SPLC teaching materials. (For example, on the SPLC’s website dedicated to “tolerance,” it instructs educators to “Teach the facts about sex assigned at birth, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and learn how to advocate for LGBT youth.”)
The third prong is “Seeking Justice.” And what does it highlight in its definition of “justice?” Of course, socialistic economic policies.
And in recent years, its Intelligence Project has been “monitoring and exposing the activities of anti-LGBT hate groups that disseminate demonizing propaganda.” The chief vehicle for its expose is its quarterly magazine, The Intelligence Report, self-described as a “periodical monitoring the radical right in the U.S.”
And there you have it. The SPLC wields its right of free speech like a club, bludgeoning the those who seek to debate ideas in the public square. It is nothing more than an activist, Leftist operation fostering civil unrest and the destruction of constitutional rights.
So … who is the real hater?
