Dear Concerned Friend,
Traditional Conservative and Christian groups are being labeled as “hate groups” by the mainstream media.
Because of the lies and deceit from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
According to the SPLC, support for traditional marriage and criticism of radical Islam both constitute “hate.”
And because of that, the SPLC has added legitimate conservative and Christian groups, including the Pacific Justice Institute, Alliance Defending Freedom, the Family Research Council, Liberty Counsel, and American Family Association to its “Hate Map.”
They’re listed right alongside violent hate groups such as the KKK, neo-Nazis and white separatists. Also listed as “haters:” former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, conservative authors Dinesh D’Souza and David Horowitz and anti-radical Muslims Majiid Nawaz and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
This false and unfair categorization is well-known — yet the mainstream media treats the Hate Map as if it’s the gospel truth, blindly parroting the SPLC’s libelous claims.
The SPLC has devolved from an organization that once fought against real hate groups, such as the KKK, and has become a hate group itself.
It holds a powerful, national position as judge, jury, and executioner, labeling any group that opposes its extreme progressive ideology as a “hate group.” The SPLC’s goal: To silence anyone it disagrees with and to drive traditional conservatives and Christians from the public square.
Under a false veneer of objectivity, the SPLC serves as the media’s expert witness for evaluating “extremism” and “hate.” When the SPLC adds another name to its “Hate Group List,” the media comes running for another salacious story.
Again, and again, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC and other members of the mainstream media unethically tell viewers that reputable groups such as the Pacific Justice Institute and the Family Research Council, and conservatives such as Senator Rand Paul, Reverand Franklin Graham, and David Horowitz are “haters,” based solely on the SPLC’s claims.
And these false labels do more than just damage reputations. They can also spark erratic violence. For example, in 2012, a liberal activist named Floyd Corkins shot up the Family Research Council offices in Washington, D.C. Corkins told the FBI he picked his target from the SPLC’s “hate group” website.
It also appears that James Hodgkinson, the man who shot Congressman Steve Scalise during Republican baseball practice in June, was inspired by the SPLC.
