FBI Quietly Cuts Ties With Anti-Christian SPLC Hate Group
Haters will hate.
In August 2012, a LGBT volunteer carrying bag of Chick-fil-A sandwiches shot up the conservative Family Research Council headquarters in Washington DC. A security guard was injured in the attack.
Corkins later admitted he got his information from the far left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) website.
The Obama administration was using the SPLC as one of its hate crimes resources. Now it appears the administration has finally severed ties with the anti-Christian organization.
Judicial Watch reported:
A year after Judicial Watch exposed the Justice Department’s tight relationship with a radical anti-Christian group linked to domestic terrorism the agency appears to have quietly severed ties with the leftwing organization.
It marks a rare victory for conservatives in a leftist administration led by a president obsessed with political correctness. Among the extremist organizations that wield tremendous influence in the Obama White House are the terrorist front group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the open-borders powerhouse National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).
JW has investigated all of these nonprofits’ unscrupulous ties to the Obama administration and uncovered a series of records detailing the unprecedented influence they have on our government. This particular case involves the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit that labels conservatives who disagree with it on social issues hateful. In fact, its website features conservative organizations on a catalogue of “hate groups.” The hate catalogue made headlines in 2012 when a domestic terrorist who carried out a politically-motivated shooting at a Christian organization, the Family Research Council (FRC), admitted he got his target list from the SPLC.
The shooter, Floyd Lee Corkins, stormed into the FRC’s Washington D.C. headquarters with the intention of killing as many employees as possible, according to a news report that cites legal documents. He shot an unarmed security guard at the FRC before the guard subdued him. Corkins pleaded guilty to three felonies, including committing an act of terrorism, and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Led by the FRC, a coalition of conservative groups—including Judicial Watch—demanded that the Obama administration stop relying on the SPLC for advice and training materials.
Last year JW obtained files from the Obama DOJ that reveal SPLC co-founder Morris Dees actually conducted a “Diversity Training Event” for the agency. Later in the year, another shocker was exposed by the conservative coalition working to chip away at the SPLC’s influence in government; the radical group also provides the U.S. military with training supplies and briefings. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a DOJ entity, also endorsed the SPLC as a source and listed it as a resource on its hate crime web page.
