Chickens, as BHO’s crazy friend famously said, are coming home to roost. Since SPLC loves destroying people, let’s talk about its founder.
There is one group that profits handsomely off of hate.
About a year ago, when that tiki torch march was in the news, famous people like George Clooney were showing the world how much they ‘cared’ by dumping millions of dollars into the coffers of SPLC.
This same group is one of the ‘fact-checkers’ who tells Social media who is, and isn’t real news. That’s a little awkward, considering it was THEIR so-called list of ‘hate groups’ that inspired an activist crackpot to bring a bag of Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and a gun to a Christian Organization (Family Research Council) and rain hell on that ‘hate group’.
Fortunately, the security guard on site — who was, himself wounded — stopped it from going further.
Their profound ‘lack of bias’ can be seen in their own comments on the incident:
A man who was apparently sympathetic to LGBT people walked into the lobby of the anti-gay Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., and shot a staff member who was standing guard.
In an era when non-Islamic terrorism in America comes predominantly from the extreme right, it was a remarkable and unusual event: A man who was apparently sympathetic to LGBT people walked into the lobby of the anti-gay Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, D.C., and shot a staff member who was standing guard.
We now live in a world where comics have ‘voted off the island’ because they’ve done some creepy sex things with adult fans, and that an allegedly ‘racist’ tweet from Roseanne was enough to deep-six a hit show.
The bias of SPLC a problem, but hardly their only problem. Another problem is the past of their co-founder Morris Dees.
Morris Dees is part of their supposed campaign to ‘erase hate’. But should we really be holding up SPLC as any kind of a moral authority when court documents have some spectacularly creepy allegations on file against him?
Like the multiple times that he attempted to seduce his own step-daughter — including visiting her bedroom twice in the same night with an offer to show her how to work a vibrator?
There were all kinds of creepy stories in the court records about how he humiliated his wife by not only having affairs, but with cheating on his wife with her present. On one occasion, even inviting a gay man into their hotel room to spend the night in the same bed with them.
But even if they’re willing to turn a Weinstein Blind Eye to how he shamed his own wife and put his own sexual appetites ahead of any consideration for other people — does attempt to seduce your own step-daughter not qualify as the kind of horror that lands someone in the same category as Bill Cosby? The category where no matter how well-liked you were, you permanently forfeit any claim to moral authority?
This is the CO-FOUNDER group that even the FBI has been turning to?
“A Republican lawmaker is demanding some answers from the FBI after he says the bureau admitted to working with the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center.”
“In a letter obtained by Fox News’ ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight,’ Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., says the FBI has ‘admitted to working with the SPLC,’ in a development he describes as ‘surprising and worrisome’.”
“‘This is surprising and worrisome, as the SPLC is known to use its platform in order to denigrate and disparage certain groups by labeling them ‘hate groups,’ he said.”
Considering how it has become weaponized and partisan, does a group such as theirs still deserve any place in civil society?
