If there’s one thing the left and the right can agree on it’s that the SPLC has lost all credibility. The site SPLC Exposed features links from all over the political spectrum pointing out the total and utter decline of the group. The left hates them for gouging hundreds of millions with accounts in the cayman islands. The right hates them for putting Christians in serious danger. The FBI and the DOD hate them for wasting law enforcement’s time.
They may have started out fighting real racism and trying to stop bonafide hate but today they are a dangerous group of race racketeers who get people shot. Their “hate” classification got a black man who worked at the Family Resource Council shot. The shooter said he did it because the council was listed as a hate group. The man who shot Steve Scalise also allegedly used the SPLC hate lists as a guide. As we said in our statement about the Oct 12th fight, “The SPLC has gathered over $432 million convincing old, rich people Nazis lie around every corner. They have been sued by Maajid Nawaz for $3.4 million. About 60 other groups (including us) are moving forward with legal action. The FBI has dumped them as a credible source (along with the ADL) and even the left-leaning Washington Post admits they have, ‘lost all credibility.'”
They are a very powerful company heavily stocked with lawyers but they have pushed their lies too far and now it’s dangerous. When Southern Poverty got rich, they went from fighting hate to creating hate where there was none.
