Over the past decade, with thanks to the ultra-left Obama administration, the Southern Poverty Law Center began an extreme campaign against any and all conservative and Christian organizations and individual.
They have used their annual list of hate groups as their main weapon in the war against conservatives and Christians.
They even listed a number of Christian churches, ministries and organizations as hate groups simply because they dared to speak the truth.
At one point, even the US Army relied on the SPLC’s list of hate groups.
Today, organizations such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon also rely on the SPLC’s list of hate groups in their own censorship and war on conservatives and Christians.
The SPLC just removed their co-founder and top litigator, so some believe now is the time to try to shut down the SPLC once and for all.
Washington Examiner – It’s time to show SPLC the door – Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center announced it had fired co-founder and chief litigator Morris Dees. It’s still too early to tell exactly what led to the sudden end of the 82-year-old’s five-decade tenure, but the news puts a unique spotlight on the SPLC itself.
Even though it still wields outsized influence over powerful corporations like Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Twitter — and, alarmingly, even some elected officials — today’s SPLC bears little resemblance to the group Dees founded nearly 50 years ago.
Founded in 1971, the SPLC landed on the map thanks to Dees’ strategy of suing white supremacists in the 1980s. It did good work then, but it is now “more of a partisan progressive hit operation than a civil rights watchdog.” …
Among the conservative victims of SPLC’s hate list was the Family Research Council, because they dared to defend the traditional and biblical family unit and marriage.
They listed Coral Ridge Ministries as a hate group when the late Rev. D. James Kennedy was alive and leading the ministry and again, they were targeted because Kennedy spoke the biblical truth on a number of issues.
Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal organization that defended people who were being persecuted for their Christian or conservative views.
In reality, SPLC is the real hate group because they hate anyone who stands for what’s good and decent.
