Any long-time reader of TheLid knows what we think of the hypocritical leftists at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
The supposedly anti-hate group has been spreading lies, misinformation, and hate for years and in recent days those lies have led directly to violent attacks on conservative organizations like the Family Research Council and the more recent shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise.
The problem is not that the SPLC is anti-hate, we would commend anyone who speaks out against hatred and hateful groups like the KKK, the Black Panthers, Neo-Nazis, Antifa, and the Westboro “Church.”
The problem is that the SPLC targets many groups and people as “haters” who aren’t actually spreading hate but have different political or religious beliefs than the SPLC. The SPLC thinks that orthodox Christians are “hate-filled” for their belief that gay marriage is a sin.
The SPLC thinks that pro-life groups are “hateful” for believing that abortion is murder.
