About time someone went up against these people for defamation and false statements after they have continually trashed multiple organizations and people, accusing them of "hate". Sure there are plenty of real hate groups on their list... and a bunch on their list because they disagree with the leftest ideology.


pjmedia.com...




No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action.

On Monday, SPLC President Richard Cohen extended his group's "sincerest apologies to Mr. Nawaz, Quilliam, and our readers for the error, and we wish Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam all the best." In settling the suit, the SPLC paid Nawaz's organization $3.375 million.

"This is a significant settlement," Staver told PJ Media. "3.375 million dollars, and it did not even go to litigation; it was a result of a demand letter."

Importantly, "the allegations that were at issue here were very similar to the allegations against the other groups," the Liberty Counsel chairman explained. "The SPLC promotes false propaganda, demonizes and labels groups they disagree with, and that labeling has economic as well as physical consequences."

The bankruptcy lawyers will have fun splitting up the SPLC assets for distribution.

Hopefully it drives these morons out of business for good. Their policy is to call anyone that doesn’t agree with them a hate group.

Good. The SPLC is one of those left-wing snowflakes who reflexively accuse anyone who disagrees with them of being hate-mongering Nazis. (Sometimes literally.)

Yes, even the DOJ under the Obama Administration Reprimanded them.... think about how bad you had to be to receive that!

Obama DOJ Reprimanded SPLC for Hateful Attacks on Immigration Control Groups

www.judicialwatch.org...




The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is an extremist nonprofit that lists conservative organizations that disagree with it on social issues on a catalogue of “hate groups.” The previously undisclosed DOJ rebuke is a vindication for groups targeted by the SPLC’s witch hunts and is especially impactful because the Obama administration was tight with the SPLC and even hired the controversial nonprofit to conduct diversity training for the government. Judicial Watch uncovered documents relating to the SPLC’s diversity training at the DOJ back in 2013.

SPLC exemplifies the old quote about becoming what you fight. Whatever good they once did has been consumed by the monster.

Maybe don't be a hate group if you don't want to be labelled a hate group?

Almost as good as "Don't go 54 in a 55 zone and the police won't shoot you".

SPLC was the major tracking site for FBI investigations into Hate groups. They even sported a badge to that effect and featured on the FBI site as well. They were distanced for a time for similar defamation reasons. Snopes will tell you that isn’t true (or partially true).

With the problems at the FBI, SPLC might not have a friend this time. Then again, SPLC might call me a racist if asked. So meh.

Brace yourself, you're about to have a bumpy ride. Hankies or tissues will be needed for the tears as you begin to realize we're leaving the era where perception is greater than reality and just having some loudmouth say "You're racists!" doesn't instantly make it so.

Thats the entire point of the 3 1/2 million dollar lawsuit. The group that presented the lawsuit was on a list of anti-Muslim groups from the SPLC. The only problem with that , the group was set up by a Muslim to help fight AGAINST anti-Muslim sentiment.
Right in there with CAIR and the rest...

You did not read the post , did you ?

Yeah , I read this some time back. Looks as if the SPLC just "googled" "anti- group" and published all the names that came up...

American Socialist

Everything I need to know right there.

Normal thinking people (not socialists) read articles before engaging the engine on the outrage machine.

Try it sometime.

Oh NO! They are as devious and anti Constitutional Republic as David Brock and his followers of Media Matters and Share Blue. Make no mistakes about it, the SPLC is as anti American as Karl Marx!
