Good Intentions: Clooneys Just Backed A Good Cause, But A HORRIBLE Charity

Written by Allan Erickson on August 28, 2017

George & Amal Clooney Donate $1 Million to Fight Hate Groups

The headline should read: Clooney’s give $1 million to support a hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The Clooney’s are no doubt good folks, well-intentioned, rightly motivated, but deceived. Once a praiseworthy leader in the fight against the KKK, the SPLC now burns Crosses in its way.

With this donation, the Clooney’s join Amazon and J.P. Morgan Chase in shoveling many millions of dollars to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization now actively engaged in attacking and seeking to destroy traditional Christian organizations, designating them hate groups, resulting in violence and death threats. *

Do you recall the attack on the Family Research Council in 2012. Domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins confessed he targeted the Family Research Council because it was cited on the “Hate Map” of the Southern Poverty Law Center website. Corkins got twenty-five years for using a firearm to attack FRC staff in their Washington, D.C. offices. He wounded a security guard.

Please read what this reliable source has to say about the SPLC:


The Southern Poverty Law Center, the “civil rights watchdog group” that ABC and NBC so prominently cite, has become a dangerous joke. It’s a joke because the very idea that Christians are members of a “hate group” merely because they advocate for orthodox Christian principles and the liberty to live those principles is so intellectually and ideologically bankrupt that it’s barely worth addressing.

The SPLC designates Liberty Counsel a hate group because LC advocates biblical marriage, engaging the debate concerning homosexuality and same-sex marriage. But for the SPLC, free speech, religious freedom and exercising the freedom of conscience are dog whistles for “hate”.

Founder of Liberty Counsel, Mat Staver, responds to the SPLC slander here.

Among other groups condemned by the SPLC— traditional, conservative groups having nothing to do with hate, racism, violence, fascism or discrimination:

Alliance Defending Freedom – Bill Bright (founder, Campus Crusade for Christ), Larry Burkett (founder, Crown Financial Ministries), James Dobson (founder, Focus on the Family), D. James Kennedy (founder, Coral Ridge Ministries), Marlin Maddoux
D. James Kennedy Ministries
Family Research Council – Tony Perkins, James Dobson
American Family Association
Baptist Churches
Pacific Justice Institute
American Freedom Law Center
Center for Security Policy
David Horowitz Freedom Center
Jihad Watch
Islam: The Religion of Peace
Tea Party Nation

Various Catholic and Jewish organizations are also condemned as “hate” groups. It appears the SPLC employs a conveniently simplistic methodology for identifying and then persecuting so-called hate groups: any one holding to traditional moral values such as heterosexual, monogamous marriage is immediately tagged, any one warning of the dangers of Sharia and Jihad is automatically a “hater”, anyone concerned about preserving the Constitution and defending God-given rights is condemned, those holding to traditional Christian values are targeted, along with all pro-lifers, everyone in favor of strong national security, and all people opposed to illegal immigration. All Trump supporters are haters, don’t you know.

In other words, unless you toe the line according to what the SPLC dictates concerning positions on controversial topics of the day, you are targeted for destruction, which means you are sued, silenced and threatened. Only the SPLC and friends have human rights in America today.

*Thanks to the “hate group” designation published by the SPLC, Liberty Counsel has received death threats.

Apparently, all this has little influence on George Clooney, or perhaps he just doesn’t know about the dark soul of the SPLC.

“What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate,” stated George Clooney, explaining his motivation to make the SPLC donation.

We agree, George. However, one does not douse the fire by pouring on gasoline, or turning on the good guys. Let’s stand up to the real haters, not just Nazis and white supremacists. Let’s include Antifa, BLM, Jihad, Communists, Anarchists and all enemies of Liberty and Justice for All, including the SPLC. You’d be wise to ask for a refund, George.

How ironic: seeing the Klan pass the torch to the SPLC.
