The Southern Poverty Law Center is the biggest hate group in America. On what could only be imagined as a slow day at their offices, they decided to add the Proud Boys to their list of “Hate Groups” this week.
The SPLC are anonymous far-left activist lawyers with no over sight, governing body, and most importantly no criteria for the conservative groups they choose to target. The non-profit organization was founded a half-century ago to make sure newly legislated civil rights were upheld. When the KKK was on their last breath as a realistic threat, SPLC made a name for themselves pushing back against them and getting black people in the formerly segregated south the representation they needed.
In modern times, the SPLC is a shadow of it’s former self. Race relations are better now than at any point in history, leaving them with little purpose. They have chosen to drum up accusations against any right wing group who so much as questions leftist dogma in an effort to create a “white supremacist” boogeymen to keep their donators shivering with fear as they write checks.
Last year more than 40 conservative groups signed a letter to media outlets asking them to stop using SPLC’s poorly collected data.
Among them was Family Research Council who said, “The SPLC has recklessly labeled dozens of mainstream conservative organizations as ‘hate groups.’ SPLC’s labeling of FRC as a ‘hate group’ was connected in federal court to an act of domestic terrorism committed five years ago at FRC’s Washington headquarters by Floyd Corkins. Corkins confessed to the FBI that he used SPLC’s ‘hate map’ to choose FRC as a target for violence. More recently, James Hodgkinson, the attempted political assassin of House Majority Whip, Rep. Steve Scalise and many other Republican members of the U.S. House and Senate, was discovered to have ‘liked’ the SPLC on Facebook.”
Part of the letter read: “All reputable news organizations should immediately stop using the SPLC descriptions of individuals and organizations based on the SPLC’s obvious political prejudices.”
The Proud Boys are in the company of pro-life groups, christian groups, and patriot groups collected on the arbitrary list. We also join authors, scholars, and human rights advocates like Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a black Somali former Muslim who had her clit cut off as a child.
She currently has a fatwa on her head for standing up for the rights of women. Every time she writes a book, speaks in public, or leaves the house she can be killed. SPLC listed her an anti-Muslim “extremist“.
The conspiracy theory the SPLC is pushing about the proud boys is we’re “secret racists” but we’ve exposed ourselves with sharing memes they don’t like and telling off color jokes. They accused us of organizing Charlottesville —that is a lie. They mention our affiliation with upstanding patriot groups like ACT for America and the Oath Keepers as if there is looming nefarious connection.
…And if I may brag, they even quote me.
What is the smoking gun, the silver bullet, the badly timed quote they got me on which will prove to their donors I’m a hate filled beast that must be stopped:
“…local Proud Boy Pawl Bazile gave a speech contrasting his own Italian forebears with Muslim immigrants. “Give us a reason to accept you,” he yelled, “because you know what? Sharia law ain’t it. Raping women ain’t it. Cutting off clits ain’t it. Throwing gay people off roofs ain’t it. You are a disgrace.” He also referred to Burkas as a “ghost costume.””
My god, they caught me…. defending women and gays…. that’s… entirely reasonable. And kinda funny too. So?
They “exposed” the fact that Gavin McInnes wrote for right wing magazines like VDare and Taki Mag. That’s not a secret, that’s why his name is at the top of the articles. A conservative commentator writing for conservative magazines… crazy world we live in.
The piece mentions FOAK. All due respect, but are they even a thing still?
In an effort to shock their audience they quoted a heated fight JL Van Dyke supposedly had years ago where they say, he said some really violent, hurtful, and racists things online. That’s the best you got, huh? If the Proud Boys are a hate group, you’d think a system of lawyers wouldn’t have to mine through the entire lifetime of thousands of members –to find a single member with something objectionable from before the Proud Boys existed.
You’d think that the evidence of our hate group status would be so plentiful they wouldn’t need to resort to jokes, weird people who tried to get into a meet up, and bad words said in an online fight. If a guy who belongs to the Proud Boys does something questionable, that doesn’t mean that one thing defines the group… you jackasses. If a Fed Ex driver robs a bank, it doesn’t mean Fed Ex endorses bank robbery.
Context, which is what ideas are build are, does not exist in the world of the SPLC anymore.
Today the legendary George Carlin would be labeled a hate monger. They’d rather purposely misunderstand what people are trying to say to win the argument. MAny liberals today never want to argue the correct interpretation of issue because they know they’ll lose.
Case in point:
The left can’t win on facts, so they’ll take their win on labels. If they label you as a racist, they don’t have to bother losing to you in a debate with there emotional arguments and bad research.
Wouldn’t it be silly for an antisemitic, anti-black, anti-gay hate group to welcome in all the people SPLC claims we hate just to not “blow our clover”? SPLC, you’re just not that important to us.
On the subject of hate groups, where are the Marxist hate groups? Where’s the hold up in the paperwork for making Antifa a hate group on SPLC list?
“Peace Through Violence” is what Antifa openly propagates it represents on CNN.
SPLC has said Antifa has just a few bad apples and refuses to put them on a hate list.
The fact is, they know we’re not a hate group. SPLC aren’t total dummies, and I’m positive they know the difference between an off color joke and a call to hate… they just don’t care.
