47 Conservatives Sign Letter Warning Media of Promoting Southern Poverty Law Center Hate Site
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a far left hate group that monitors what it defines as “hate groups” in America. The list includes singing nuns, secular Muslims, and traditional Christian communities.
The SPLC is also linked to several violent acts in America.
Craig Steven Hicks is a raging progressive leftist who fed on a steady diet of liberal media.
Then he murdered three Muslims. Hicks was a fan of the Huffington Post, Rachel Maddow, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Freedom from Religion Foundation.
An LGBT volunteer carrying bag of Chick-Fil-A sandwiches shot up the conservative Family Research Council headquarters in August 2012.
Floyd Corkins was influenced by the Southern Poverty Law Center hate group.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is also unable to face the real hatred and threats of our time.
The Southern Poverty Law Center blamed conservative Pamela Geller for the San Bernardino jihad massacre in their annual report.
Syed Rizwan Farook and his Muslim wife Tashfeen Malik murdered 14 people at a Christmas party in San Bernardino on December 2, 2015.
The SPLC said it was Pamela Geller’s fault.
Last week the far left Southern Poverty Law Center refused to designate Antifa a hate group.
Richard Cohen, the president of the SPLC, told the Washington Examiner that calling Antifa a hate group would be a “wrongheaded” move.
47 conservatives signed a letter this week warning the liberal media of using the Southern Poverty Law Center hate website as a source for their reports.

FOX News reported:
Forty-seven prominent conservatives have signed an open letter warning the mainstream media against using data on hate groups compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
The letter calls the SPLC a “discredited, left-wing political activist organization that seeks to silence its political opponents with a ‘hate group’ label of its own invention.”
Founded in 1971, the SPLC gained fame by successfully prosecuting legal cases against white supremacist organizations, including the Ku Klux Klan. It describes its mission as “fighting hate and bigotry and … seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.”
Today, the SPLC is best known for tracking hate groups, which the organization defines as having “beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristic.” Currently, the SPLC says 917 hate groups are operating in the United States.
