The Southern Poverty Law Center lists Ayaan Hirsi Ali — who grew up Muslim in Somalia and suffered female genital mutilation — as an "anti-Muslim extremist." Just because she now speaks out against radical Islam.
They also list the conservative Family Research Council as a "hate group."
That listing led a man to go to the Council's office to try to gun down their workers. The shooter later told law enforcement that he picked the group because he saw they were on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate map and he wanted to fight bigots.
This is false.
C-Fam’s core mission is truth telling, and we believe that the truth about SPLC should be known so that people of good faith can make up their own mind about SPLC scare tactics and put an end to them.
The good news is that many are waking up to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The FBI used to partner with them in identifying hate groups. They no longer do. The Army used to have them lecture on domestic terrorism. The Army has ended that relationship.
Below you will find a powerful video exposing the Southern Poverty Law Center and their stated goal of destroying their political opponents. You will also find many essays and articles about this nefarious group, including articles from left-wing groups who are also concerned about the tactics of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has created a list of its adversaries which it calls “hate groups.” This list includes champions of marriage and the family, including our name and those of some of our UN pro-life and pro-family coalition members.
Unfortunately, this false moniker has been wielded by those who oppose the natural family and marriage to scare government officials away from working with us and deter those who would support our work from funding us and others.
The real purpose of this list is to silence opponents, to isolate them. It is a kind of weaponized political correctness. It is also about raising money for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has more than $300 million dollars in the bank and rakes in more than $50 million every year.
The SPLC and its allies are getting away with this scare tactic in part because they hide behind the perception that they are a human rights organization that champions fairness and American values.
Fascists protect fascists.
They are anti-freedom, anti-Constitutional.
I would hazard to guess that they're probably Marxist at heart, but lean towards authoritarian fascism as one of their core beliefs.
The SPLC holds $328 million in net assets and raised more than $50 million in contributions in 2015 despite spending just $61,000 on legal services.
Tax experts expressed confusion when being told of the transfer. "I've never known a US-based nonprofit dealing in human rights or social services to have any foreign bank accounts," said Amy Sterling Casil, CEO of Pacific Human Capital, a California-based nonprofit consulting firm. "My impression based on prior interactions is that they have a small, modestly paid staff, and were regarded by most in the industry as frugal and reliable. I am stunned to learn of transfers of millions to offshore bank accounts. It is a huge red flag and would have been completely unacceptable to any wealthy, responsible, experienced board member who was committed to a charitable mission who I ever worked with." "It is unethical for any US-based charity to invest large sums of money overseas," said Casil. "I know of no legitimate reason for any US-based nonprofit to put money in overseas, unregulated bank accounts." "It seems extremely unusual for a ‘501(c)(3)' concentrating upon reducing poverty in the American South to have multiple bank accounts in tax haven nations," Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street analyst and financial advisor who helped uncover a 2009 financial scandal at General Electric, told the Free Beacon.
