ACT for America Cancelled by Trump’s Mar-a-Lago!


What the HECK!?

You’ve probably heard by now that President Trump’s private enterprise at Mar-a-Lago (though probably not controlled by Trump while President) cancelled an annual event hosted by Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT for America event due Leftist/Muslim pressure.

 

The irony is Gabriel’s Counterjihad work too often goes out of its way to emphasize ACT for America is not Anti-Muslim but IS anti-radical Islam especially as it leads to Islamic terrorism.

 

In that sense it has always been my opinion Gabriel has been too soft on Islam yet still doing great work in exposing the nefarious actions of Muslim terrorists and educating on Islamic history, a history though accurate you will rarely hear or read about due to Multiculturalist/Muslim-Apologist whitewashing.

 

Especially since I am still in Facebook Jail, I have no qualms in saying ISLAM is freaking EVIL according to its own revered writings instructing Islamic adherents to despise ALL non-Muslims specifically naming Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians (mostly killed off by early Muslims), with some vehement hatred toward adherents of polytheistic religious beliefs. From Hugh Fitzgerald on Islamic revered writings displaying hate against non-Muslims:

 

The main texts of Islam are the Qur’an, the Hadith, and the Sira. The Qur’an is the Uncreated and Literal Word of God. It cannot be changed. It contains contradictions within itself, which long ago were resolved in favor of what are thought to be the later, and harsher verses. The “harsher” verses are said to date from Muhammad’s time in Medina, after he conquered that city. No longer needing to curry favor with anyone, as he had had to do in Mecca, he could afford to be as harsh as he pleased. The interpretive vehicle for dealing with contradictions in the Qur’an, and favoring the later verses, is “abrogation” or naskh. The doctrine dates back more than a millennium. Nonetheless, some have suggested that the doctrine be abandoned, so that the harsher verses no longer would be held to abrogate the softer verses from Muhammad’s “Meccan” period. This is unlikely to be accepted by more than a handful of would-be “reformers of Islam.” (A Vademecum On Islam: Five Pillars, Qur’an, Hadith, Sira; By Hugh Fitzgerald; Geller Report; 8/2/17)  

 

Here is a link to specific portions of Islamic revered text expressing adversarial instructions for Muslims to apply: https://wikiislam.net/wiki/Qur%27an,_Hadith_and_Scholars:Dhimmitude

 

And those are a mere few there are much-much more. YUP I am definitely Anti-Islam. AND I am Anti-Muslim toward any who abides to Islamic writings revered as Islamic truth yet detrimental to my existence. From what I’ve read and heard, Brigitte Gabriel is NOT on that same anti-Muslim train. She is only on the anti-Radical-Islam train.

 

Consider Brigitte Gabriel’s justified dismay upon learning a Meeting Place owned by President Trump – whom Gabriel has ardently supported through thick and thin! – cancelled her paid-for contractual event under accusations of being “Anti-Muslim”:

Administration Officials Welcome Senior Muslim Brotherhood Leader to White House

Understanding The Threat

 

In the face of public criticism from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Trump Organization shut down an Act for America event scheduled at the President’s Mar a Lago resort in November featuring Michelle Malkin.

 

If that were the only surrender to the suit-wearing jihadis, it would be bad enough. But it is worse than just a cancelled event.

 

On September 25, 2019, the Department of Homeland Security and Administration officials hosted an event in the White House entitled “Faith Based Safety and Security Symposium” attended by Vice President Mike Pence and senior DHS officials.

 

Senior Muslim Brotherhood Leader Oussama Jammal (green tie) inside the White House.

 

Unfortunately, Oussama Jammal, a man UTT identifies as one of the top two Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the United States, also attended.

 

Jammal is the Secretary General of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the Muslim Brotherhood’s mothership in the United States. The USCMO is a conglomerate of Muslim Brotherhood organizations which identifies itself as a “political” entity.

 

Oussama Jammal – Sec Gen USCMO

 

Days before the White House event, Oussama Jammal along with U.S. Hamas Leader Nihad Awad – a man UTT identifies as the General Masul or Leader of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood – met with Turkish President Erdogan in New York.

 

Yellow Identifies: Erdogan (Left) & Jammal (Right)

 

Yellow Identifies- CAIR Natl Exec Dir Nihad Awad

 

Understanding the Threat (UTT) assesses Turkish President Erdogan is the likely next Caliph for the global Islamic Movement, and assesses the enemy is in their final stages of preparing to announce the caliphate.

 

The Administration’s participation with leaders of the hostile Islamic Counter-State like Oussama Jammal reveals a gross lack of understanding of the true nature of the threat, and dangerous surrender to their efforts.

 

This should be a clear call to all Americans that this war will be won or lost at the local level. Citizens must know and understand the threat from the Islamic Counter-State at the LOCAL level, and force local officials to take actions to dismantle the jihadi networks and keep future networks from being established.

 

UTT is a leader in the counter-jihad and is the only organization in America giving citizens, police, elected officials and local/state leaders tools to identify and dismantle jihadi networks in local communities.

Left works to shut down conservative group at Mar-a-Lago

Lean Left Button

A conservative national grassroots organization was kicked out of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate after liberals complained.

 

ACT for America has one gala dinner a year to raise money for its mission to ensure the safety and security of Americans against foreign and domestic threats – including Islamic terrorism.

 

ACT for American Chairman Brigitte Gabriel pointed out that this year’s event was reserved earlier in the year at Trump’s Florida estate Mar-a-Lago.

 

Brigitte Gabriel

“We signed a contract with Mar-a-Lago back in April that we were going to have this dinner gala,” Gabriel stressed. “We had elected officials invited to be honored, [and] we had Michelle Malkin as the keynote speaker.”

 

The nationally syndicated columnist, Malkin, blasted activist groups on the left for shutting down and silencing conservatives.

 

“I planned to talk to ACT for America’s gala attendees about the ongoing national security threat that jihad-coddling Muslim grievance groups and other identity politics agitators in the ‘Open Borders, Inc.’ infrastructure pose to our country’s very existence,” Malkin wrote in her op-ed published on ONN. “But thanks to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Council on American Islamic Relations, Miami Herald, copycat journalists and the Trump Organization, the event was banned from Mar-a-Lago.”

 

She said it isn’t hard these days for liberals to keep those with opposing views from meeting and speaking.

 

“All it took was a noisy little echo chamber of lazy media lemmings in search of weekend clickbait,” Malkin continued. “On Saturday morning, the Miami Herald published an inflammatory attack masquerading as ‘breaking news’ with the headline: ‘Anti-Muslim extremist group says it will host $1,500-a-plate gala at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.’”

 

Gabriel echoed Malkin’s concern, recounting what happened once the usual suspects on the left got wind of the event.

 

“The Southern Poverty Law Center put an article out on Friday at midnight are basically saying that we are an anti-Muslim hate group,” the leader of ACT for America explained. “And then, of course, the Miami Herald put it out and within a couple hours we got an email on a Saturday morning from the Trump organization saying we are cancelling the event.”

 

In fact, the Trump Organization – not to be confused with the Trump Campaign or administration – said, “This event will absolutely not be taking place at Mar-a-Lago.”

 

Gabriel indicated that lawyers at the resort simply panicked.

 

“Of all organizations, the Trump Organization … should understand what it’s like … for people to accuse an innocent person by calling them names,” she argued.

 

Gabriel is very clear that she does not blame the president for the cancellation and that the still supports him.

‘HATE-GROUP MONITOR’ CLAIMS ANTIFA NOT A HATE GROUP


UN-FREAKING BELIEVABLE!

 

The Leftist propaganda organization vainly trying to shore up their reputation as a hate-watchdog – Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) – constantly condemns non-violent Christian organizations, Conservative values organizations and Counterjihad people/organizations as hate-groups. BUT the SPLC says violence oriented ANTIFA is not a hate-group.

‘HATE-GROUP MONITOR’ CLAIMS ANTIFA NOT A HATE GROUP

‘Domestic terrorists’ aren’t a part of ‘group that vilifies people on basis of race, ethnicity, religion

Antifa Anarchist Violence

 

For at least a year, America has been under attack by black-clad, bandanna and helmet-wearing “domestic terrorists,” say the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

The self-described anarchists and revolutionary communists are known for brutal acts of violence and their chilling threats.

 

But there’s something you simply don’t understand about antifa, according to the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, which has appointed itself America’s leading arbiter of “hate”:

 

The brutally violent “domestic terrorists” don’t actually espouse hate.

 

“If you are familiar with our work, we write about antifa often,” SPLC President Richard Cohen told the House Homeland Security Committee on Nov. 30. “We condemn their tactics – I’ve said so publicly and we do so always – but antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.”

 

Except antifa certainly does vilify people, especially based on political viewpoint, and sometimes even based on religion.

 

What do YOU think? Is antifa a hate group? Sound off in today’s WND poll

 

On the day of President Trump’s inauguration, antifa members rioted in Washington, D.C., smashing a limousine window with a hammer, shattering storefronts, vandalizing bus stops and throwing rocks at police officers, six of whom sustained injuries.

 

After the inauguration, antifa rioters smashed windows and set fires in Portland.

 

Antifa at War

 

In February, antifa activists set the University of California at Berkeley campus on fire, throwing rocks through windows and causing $100,000 in damages. In March, they shouted down a Gold Star mother whose child was killed in the line of duty. Then they crashed a pro-Trump march in Berkeley while reportedly toting bricks and baseball bats.

 

The “alt-left” has been around for decades, but conservatives have remained ignorant. Now, WND takes you inside antifa with an exclusive special report revealing the origins, motivations and future of America’s most widespread and active domestic terrorist group. Get your FREE copy of Antifa: What Americans Need to Know about the Alt-Left.”

 

In April, they crashed a Trump rally again, this time carrying knives, flagpoles and sticks. In May, they made an appearance at a May Day rally in Portland, assaulting cops, lighting fires and spray-painting a police car. In June, antifa activists wore masks and protested in Portland at a rally for President Trump. Police were forced to deploy stingballs and grenades with rubber pellets to keep the antifa activists away so Trump supporters could finish their speeches.

 

Antifa threw bricks, rocks, marbles, tampons, urine and feces, PBS reported. They left graffiti messages stating, “STAB A NAZI, TWICE :).”

In August 4,000 Antifa agitators and other leftists shut down a “No to Marxism” rally and prayer vigil being held by about 400 conservative Christians in Berkeley, California. Police released mugshots  of 11 of the 13 persons arrested at the violent political riots in the university town. Charges include assault with a deadly weapon, felony assault and various municipal code violations. One officer was injured while making an arrest, and several others were struck with paint and bottles.

 

Antifa’s war cry, caught on video during the rally, was no less than the total destruction of American society. “No Trump, no wall, no USA at all!” they chanted.

Since then, they have prepped for a mass uprising to “remove” fascist Trump.

 

But don’t confuse any of those actions with “hate,” says the SPLC, which has condemned groups and public figures who disagree with its agenda, putting them on its “hate” map, which once prominently included former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson before the group was skewered on social media, prompting an abrupt retreat.

While featuring organizations such as the KKK, the “hate map” – which is cited by many media outlets – also includes mainstream groups such as the Family Research Council.

 

Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., questioned the SPLC’s refusal to include antifa on its “hate map,” telling Cohen that it “reduces your credibility.” Perry accused the leftist group of picking and choosing which individuals and groups it includes on its map based not on actual facts but “only your opinion.”

 

“So you’re OK with antifa as long as they don’t say things that you don’t agree with, but it’s OK if they hit people on the head with a bike lock or set things on fire or riot and flout the law by wearing face masks and incite riots – you’re OK with that?” Perry asked.

 

Cohen responded: “We condemn groups like antifa. We write about them often. We don’t list them as hate groups.”

 

He claimed the Family Research Council is included on the “hate map” because it “relentlessly vilifies” members of the LGBT community.

 

“Our listing of hate groups doesn’t necessarily mean that they engage in violence, although we think that the anti-LGBT propaganda is one of the factors that makes the LGBT community in our country the most likely to be victimized by hate crimes,” Cohen said.

 

Ironically, the SPLC’s own “hate map” appears to have incited violence against the Family Research Council in 2012 when a gunman shot the group’s security guard after consulting the “hate map.”

 

SPLC was linked to domestic terror through Floyd Lee Corkins, who cited SPLC as his inspiration for his going to the Washington offices of the Family Research Council, armed with a gun, intending to kill as many people as he could. He was stopped by a security guard, who was injured. WND reported a video showed Corkins entering the FRC offices and confronting Leo Johnson.

On August 15. 2012 at 10:46 a.m., Floyd Corkins entered the lobby of Family Research Council armed with a loaded semi-automatic pistol, 100 rounds of ammunition, and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. FRC building manager Leo Johnson was temporarily manning the front desk at our Washington headquarters when a now-confessed terrorist intent on killing everyone in the building entered with a handgun and 100 rounds of ammunition. As he drew his gun, Leo courageously charged the attacker into oncoming gunfire. Even after sustaining a direct hit to his forearm, he subdued the attacker and wrestled the gun away from him.

 

Why did confessed terrorist Corkins choose Family Research Council as a target for his attack? In an FBI interrogation, Corkins admitted he found his target from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list.]

 

Cohen denied all responsibility for the 2012 shooting at FRC.

 

He defended SPLC’s selections of groups and individuals to include on its “hate map,” noting that includes groups like the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party.

 

Perry then noted that the organization Students for Justice in Palestine has called for violence against Jews. He asked Cohen why the group wasn’t included on its map.

 

“I don’t know about that particular group,” Cohen said. “We try to call hate as we see it. We limit our list not by left versus right but by groups that villify others for factors such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or the like.”

 

In August, a headline on The Drudge Report declared that Google was teaming up with “liberal groups to snuff out conservative websites.” Google said it was partnering with SPLC and other leftist organizations to document and publicize “hate crimes and events” in the U.S. Cohen told the House Homeland Security Committee that he has pushed Google to manipulate its search engine to suppress results from so-called “hate groups.”

 

“What we try to get Google to do is not prioritize hate groups,” he explained, citing racist shooter Dylann Roof, who searched “black on white crime” before he killed nine black churchgoers in 2015 at a church in Charleston, South Carolina.

 

Cohen continued, “So we’re trying to say to Google, your algorithm is flawed or easily manipulated.”

 

Get the Whistleblower Magazine’s revelations about SPLC in “The Hate Racket,” the story of how one group fools government into equating Christians and conservatives with Klansmen and Nazis – and rakes in millions doing it.

 

In another line of questioning, Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., asked why SPLC, a nonprofit, is stashing at least $69 million in its offshore accounts.

 

“I think there’s been some confusion in the press about this,” Cohen claimed. “It’s common for nonprofit organizations, including universities and big foundations, to have money in offshore accounts. It avoids two things: certain kinds of filings and unrelated business income tax.”

 

Cohen also told the House Homeland Security Committee that Trump’s campaign for the White House “energized the white supremacist movement.” He said the white-supremacist website Stormfront doubled its visitors between 2008 and 2017.

 

But Rep. Thomas Garrett, R-Va., noted that the number of Stormfront’s visitors increased most rapidly during the administration of Barack Obama. And the biggest growth in black separatist groups on SPLC’s “hatewatch” list took place while Obama was president.

 

“Again, this isn’t President Obama’s fault. It’s not, is it?” Garrett asked. “I mean, I don’t think it is. If someone were to say that the prevalence of these groups is because of the rhetoric of one individual, that would be oversimplifying the problem, would it not?”

 

Cohen responded, “Depending on the individual.”

 

Garrett then observed that SPLC’s staff tends to contribute to Democrats. And he also noted that SPLC works with leftist organizations like Media Matters for America.

 

“I respect what you do. I’m concerned with how you’re doing it,” Garrett said, adding: “[It] troubles those to see an entity that has essentially been de facto made responsible for determing [sic] what is and isn’t hate that skews almost exclusively as do their collaborators in a particular direction.

 

But it shouldn’t be shocking to anyone that SPLC is staffed by leftists, Cohen said.

 

“The liberal tradition is an inclusive one,” he said. “Hate is the opposite of that liberal tradition of inclusivity. So it’s not surprising to me that people at the SPLC, people at other inclusive organizations tend to give money to liberal organizations. It seems obvious to me.”

Exposing SPLC as Hate Group


 

John R. Houk

© September 3, 2017

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) got its start during the Civil Rights movement of the ‘70s. In those days the SPLC was a hero for targeting racist organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), Neo-Nazi groups (e.g. Aryans and Skin Heads) and other racist hate groups. Good stuff, right?

 

Well the major victories of the Civil Rights movement at least on legal ground has leveled the playing field in the rule of law. Certainly racism still exists in America, but racial minorities have the law on their side to prevent racial exploitation on an overt basis. The racism that is growing now in the America is largely the result of Left-Wing groups stirring up strife with race-baiting in an effort to gain votes. Leftist race-baiting has been a political instrument for the last couple of decades to hinder traditional American values that began to regain sway with the Presidential Administrations of Reagan, Bush II and now populist Conservatism with the surprise election of President Donald Trump.

 

Since the Left can hardly believe they lost to President Trump, they have done everything to lie, obstruct and manufacture anti-Trump accusations ever since that first Tuesday in November 2016.

 

The SPLC is doing their part for the Left by labeling Biblical Family Values organizations as hate groups. There are several groups on the SPLC so-called hate list that are simply Biblical Christian or telling the truth about Islam that I am not going to name here. The Christian ones of interest to me are the Liberty Counsel (LC), Family Research Council (FRC) and American Family Association (AFA).

 

If I had time I could point out Counterjihad writers and organizations that simply expose the darker nature of Islam that the Left refuses to expose and way too many Conservatives are hesitant to expose out of fear of organizations like the SPLC labeling them Islamophobic haters.

 

For both Christians and Counterjihadists, the SPLC hate-labels are merely to turn the relatively uninformed public against what is correct and moral by calling the good as evil.

 

The Conservapedia entry for the SPLC provides a great synopsis of the organization’s hatred of all things American Patriotic, Christian and Counterjihad in the first couple of paragraphs – READ the entire entry:

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a far-Left legal and activist organization created in 1971 in Montgomery, Alabama. It was founded by trial lawyers Morris Dees and Joe Levin, and its first president was civil rights leader Julian Bond, who would later take control of the NAACP. SPLC supports a wide variety of liberal positions; it is pro-immigration (both legal and illegal), advocates multiculturalism and the homosexual agenda, supports Muslims and racial preferences and defendants’ rights, and advocates against what it considers “hate groups”. In 2012, Black pastors confronted the Southern Poverty Law Center for smearing as “hate groups” pro-family organizations opposed to the homosexual agenda.[1] Reverend Dr. Patrick Wooden admonished the SPLC in declaring that it is wrong to compare “my beautiful blackness” with homosexual perversion.[2]

 

The SPLC’s op-ed writings have appeared in the Communist Party USA‘s newspaper People’s World.[3] This “controversial, liberal organization” [4] has been criticized in mainstream press for being extravagant in its spending, and using charges of racism to stifle conservatives.[5] (Southern Poverty Law Center; Conservapedia; page was last modified on 21 July 2017, at 22:33)

 

The Liberty Counsel has been blistered by the SPLC so often that they have been the subject of multiple hate-accusations trying to discredit and ruin the Christian Family Values advocate organization. It has led Mat Staver to ask for legal defense aid several times a week to battle in civil suit beginning with NGO expert Guidestar that used the SPLC hate-list.

 

An article from 7/2/17 I found on American Civil Rights Union (ACRU not to be confused with Leftist ACLU):

 

Frustrated by its inability to win elections, the left is attempting to silence opponents through intimidation, either in the streets or in the courts.

The latest example is the hijacking of Guidestar USA by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

 

Guidestar is a database of more than 2 million nonprofit and non-governmental (NGO) organizations. It’s considered the foremost authority on nonprofits, and had a self-avowed reputation for “remaining neutral.”

 

That changed when a left-wing activist, Jacob Harold, came aboard in 2012. Mr. Harold, whose bio boasts of donating to the Obama campaign, extensive activism on behalf of climate change groups, and hosting a NARAL Pro-Choice D.C. men’s event, tweeted a photo of himself holding a sign protesting President Trump at the radical Women’s March in January.

 

Apart from Vermont ice cream magnates Ben and Jerry, it might be hard to find a more radically leftist major CEO. So it’s no wonder that Mr. Harold welcomed the Southern Poverty Law Center as an authority on “hate groups.” Using SPLC’s “hate map” as a resource, Guidestar smeared 46 organizations, many of them Christian, as “hate groups.”

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a long history of abusing nonprofits and individuals with whom they disagree. They tar innocent people and may have inspired at least two terrorist incidents. The SPLC’s “hate map” lumps Christian and conservative organizations with neo-Nazis, skinheads and other violence-prone groups. … (Silencing the Silencers; By Robert Knight; ACRU; 7/2/17)

 

And from Christianity Today:

 

A venerable Christian ministry based in Fort Lauderdale recently saw its name listed on a CNN map of “all the active hate groups where you live,” as well as in local news reports as the No. 1 hate group in Florida.

 

 

“Enough is enough,” said Frank Wright, president of D. James Kennedy Ministries, which filed a lawsuit against the SPLC on Wednesday. The organization also sued GuideStar and AmazonSmile for their use of the SPLC list.

 

… The SPLC recently received a prominent boost from Apple, which pledged a $1 million donation and will launch a new feature to allow users to donate directly from iTunes.

 

 

D. James Kennedy Ministries—formerly called Truth in Action—claims that the SPLC falsely labeled it as a hate group with the intention to hurt its reputation and fundraising efforts, according to a 39-page lawsuit filed in federal district court in Alabama (where the SPLC is headquartered).

 

The suit alleges that the ministry’s inclusion on the list of hate groups amounts to defamation—spreading false, harmful information—as well as a trademark violation, misrepresenting the ministry in order to drum up fundraising support. Wednesday’s filing made the same claims against the charity-research site GuideStar for promoting the SPLC designation, seeking an injunction against further use of the “hate group” label and damages from both organizations.

 

Wanting to call out “hateful rhetoric” during a “highly politicized moment,” GuideStar recently added the SPLC designations onto its profile pages—including for Christian nonprofits who stand for traditional marriage like the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), Liberty Counsel, the Family Research Council (FRC), and the American Family Association—then removed the hate labels after backlash in June. The controversy made many of these groups, their leaders, and their supporters even more upset over the prominence of the SPLC’s categorizations. (D. James Kennedy Ministries Sues SPLC over Hate Map; By KATE SHELLNUTT; Christianity Today; 8/24/17 10:20 AM)

 

From WND:

 

 

The case alleges that the defendants — online retailer Amazon, online charity reporting company Guidestar and SPLC — damaged the ministries by creating, publishing and promoting SPLC’s infamous “hate” designations.

 

The hate designations already have prompted a lawsuit by Liberty Counsel against Guidestar. And several organizations, including the Alliance Defending Freedom, have demanded broadcasters retract reports quoting SPLC’s hate designations.

 

The case seeks an award for “special harms from the SPLC” over the groups’ rejection by the AmazonSmile program due to the hate designations.

 

 

“It is the SPLC’s intent that the people who receive the information that SPLC publishes about the ministry will rely on SPLC’s information as fact and will base their charitable giving decisions on that information.”

 

For its part, GuideStar “knowingly accepts defamatory information from the SPLC regarding the ministry and knowingly, intentionally, and purposefully republishes that defamatory information with the intent that the people who receive the republished SPLC information from GuideStar will rely on that information as fact for the purpose of making their charitable giving decsisions [sic].”

 

The case alleges defamation against SPLC and GuideStar: “SPLC’s very purpose for placing the ministry on the Hate Map was to harm the reputation of the ministry as to lower it in the estimation of the community and to deter third persons from associating or dealing with the ministry.”

 

 

Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit that advocates for civil and religious rights, sued GuideStar over its use of SPLC’s “hate” labels, explaining the actions resulted in death threats to employees and other harm.

 

“Liberty Counsel has been forced to provide additional security because of the significant threat that GuideStar’s false and defamatory statement has caused. Violent extremists have relied on the false and defamatory statement to commit acts of terrorism and violence against innocent people who merely happen to hold a different viewpoint on certain issues than GuideStar,” Liberty Counsel said.

 

Liberty Counsel pointed out that SPLC “hate” designations already have been linked to two attempted mass murders: the attack by Corkins on the Washington office of Family Research Council and the shooting attack this summer near the capital that severely injured Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La. (LEFT-WING GROUPS SUED FOR VIOLATING CHRISTIANS’ CIVIL RIGHTS; By BOB UNRUH; WND; 8/22/17 8:39 PM)

 

From Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF):

 

 

SPLC’s word-weapon of choice is “hate.” It uses the H-word to harpoon victims through a “Hate Map” – a cluttered visual surrounded by sobering images such as a “hate-graph” and clenched fist symbols. Percentages purportedly communicating something really serious about “hate” assault the viewer’s senses in size 72 font.

 

The map’s approach is indiscriminate, by design. It mixes the likes of the KKK, “Racist Skinhead(s),” and “Neo-Nazi(s)” with groups holding traditional views of human sexuality. Quaint notions on the meaning of marriage, rooted in longstanding religious beliefs, receive special hostility. Never mind that less than 10 years ago nearly every major political figure in the country, including President Obama, said marriage was a union of one man and one woman. Many of those folks are given a pass, however, because their views on that issue have since “evolved.”

 

But the SPLC dictates – because it says so – that those who failed to evolve (some might say “retained their convictions”) are now the functional equivalent of skinheads. Just picture those scary traditional marriage types, roaming the streets with chains, looking for a good fight. This would be a ludicrous and even laughable attempt at equivalency, if not for the harm it does to people of good will (to say nothing of the damage to public discourse).

 

Fortunately, increasing numbers of independent commentators are calling out the SPLC for its outrageous tactics. But as someone once observed (the author is disputed), “a lie gets halfway around the world while truth is pulling its boots on.” (How the SPLC Uses the Word “Hate” to Silence Dissent; By Joseph Infranco; ADF; 8/21/17)

 

These efforts are beginning to cause a bit of Leftist worry. The American Family Association (AFA) posted this video on Youtube:

Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel not only is involved in the civil suit against the SPLC, Guidestar and etc., but they are also publicizing some dirt on the SPLC to demonstrate how nefarious the Leftist organization is:

 

I have some breaking news on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) that gives us a window of opportunity to expose the SPLC for what it is — a massive, money-making machine of the radical left that is aggressively targeting pro-faith and pro-family organizations.

 

On Thursday, The Washington Free Beacon exposed the SPLC’s ongoing practice of funneling many millions of dollars into offshore accounts, where it apparently is stockpiling vast sums of money.

+ + Why is the SPLC stockpiling millions overseas?

 

This practice of stockpiling millions of dollars in overseas, unregulated bank accounts is highly unusual for a U.S. non-profit and blows the SPLC’s cover as allegedly being a legitimate, grassroots organization. Instead, as Liberty Counsel has reported, the SPLC is a vast enterprise with hundreds of millions of dollars that is pushing an anti-faith, anti-family agenda that threatens every American’s liberties! Now that the SPLC’s unethical and unregulated “offshore” money has come to light, we must do everything in our power to fight back against their “fake hate” campaign and overcome their outrageous lies once and for all!

 

That’s why I’m asking for your help right now…

 

Over the past few weeks, the SPLC has blatantly “leveraged” the Charlottesville tragedy to expand its “fake hate” campaign. As I have been reporting, this has resulted in an AVALANCHE of attacks against Liberty Counsel and a massive increase in funding to the SPLC from commercial entities like Apple, JP Morgan, and others.

 

 

With this revelation of SPLC offshore bank accounts stockpiling millions of dollars, we must move quickly to expand our efforts to both expose the SPLC’s deceptions and defeat the SPLC’s attacks.

 

 

The SPLC is at the forefront of a very strategic effort to equate Christian and family values with “hate.”  Their attacks have multiplied in recent weeks. But right now, I believe we have a unique opportunity to both expose their lies and defeat the SPLC’s twisted strategy. I can’t do this without your help. Please take a moment right now to consider how you can help. And then go here to make your best possible gift. … (BREAKING: SPLC stashing millions offshore!

Southern Poverty Law Center: ‘Our Aim in Life Is to Destroy These Groups, Completely’

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has gained traction in recent weeks, but contrary to media reports, the group does not exist to “monitor hate groups” but to destroy groups that it targets for “strictly ideological” reasons. In light of large donations from Apple, J.P. Morgan, and George Clooney, and CNN’s favorable coverage of the SPLC, Americans should learn the real motivations behind this far-left organization.

 

In the words of SPLC former spokesman Mark Potok (who spent 20 years as a senior fellow at the SPLC and only retired this year, according to LinkedIn), the group does not exist to monitor hate groups.

 

“Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate groups, I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, completely destroy them,” Potok declared at an event in Michigan in 2007.

Mark Potok from the Southern Poverty Law Center Speaks at the 2007 MIAAHC Hate Crimes Conference

 

Potok reiterated this point at a Vermont school group in 2008. “You are able to destroy these groups sometimes by the things you publish,” he declared. “It’s not so much that they will bring down the police or the federal agents on their head, it’s that you can sometimes so mortally embarrass these groups that they will be destroyed” (emphasis added).

 

The SPLC “mortally embarrasses” groups by equating mainstream conservative, Christian, and other organizations with the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists. Make no mistake, this is not a “hate group monitoring” organization, it’s a far-Left defamation racket that exists to target any group it disagrees with politically.

 

“We see this political struggle,” Potok added in his 2008 Vermont speech. “We’re not trying to change anybody’s mind. We’re trying to wreck the groups. We’re trying to destroy them. Not to send them to prison unfairly or to take their free speech rights away, but as a political matter to destroy them.”

 

In yet another 2008 speech, Potok explained the SPLC criteria for a “hate group.” The spokesman said, “Our criteria for a ‘hate group,’ first of all, have nothing to do with criminality, or violence, or any kind of guess we’re making about ‘this group could be dangerous.’ It’s strictly ideological” (emphasis added).

 

Here’s the criteria: “So we look at a group and we say, ‘Does this group, in its platform statements, or the speeches of its leader or leaders — Does this group say that a whole group of people, by virtue of their group characteristics, is somehow less?”

 

SPLC Warns of ‘Turmoil and Bloodshed’ With New Map Identifying Confederate Monuments, Cities, MIDDLE SCHOOLS

 

The SPLC’s actions have revealed what “group characteristics” means. The “hate group” list  features Christian organizations like D. James Kennedy Ministriesthe Family Research Council (FRC)Liberty Counsel, the American Family Association (AFA), and Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), along with other groups like the American College of Pediatricians and the Center for Immigration Studies. It also lists Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz and women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali as “anti-Muslim extremists.”

 

If an organization disagrees with LGBT activism, it is a “hate group,” because in the eyes of the SPLC belief in traditional marriage equates to stigmatizing gay people. If an organization or an individual warns against radical Islamic terrorism, that person or group is “hateful” because in the eyes of the SPLC it has stigmatized all Muslims, even if the person is a Muslim himself.

 

In light of these revelations, it makes sense that D. James Kennedy MinistriesLiberty Counsel, and Maajid Nawaz have each filed defamation lawsuits against the SPLC.

 

The SPLC’s broad definition of a “hate group” is exceedingly important, because this “hate” labeling has inspired at least one terror attack.

 

In the summer of 2012, the SPLC’s “hate map” inspired Floyd Lee Corkins III to break into the Family Research Council (FRC), a Christian nonprofit in Washington, D.C. Corkins aimed to murder everyone in the building, and he later pled guilty to committing an act of terrorism. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

 

During an FBI interrogation, the terrorist said he targeted FRC because it was listed as an “anti-gay group” on the SPLC website.

While the SPLC took no responsibility for their hate map inspiring the FRC shooting and refused to remove the FRC from that hate map, the group did claim that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s political action committee released maps putting Democrats in Congress in crosshairs, inspiring the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Az.). PolitiFact rated the SPLC’s claim “false.”

 

Nor was the 2012 attack the only terrorist event involving the SPLC. Earlier this summer, Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson shot people at a Republican Congressional Baseball Game practice, nearly killing Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) Hodgkinson “liked” the SPLC on Facebook.

 

The group had repeatedly tarred Scalise for a speech he gave to a white supremacist group, even after Scalise apologized (and was called a “sellout” by former KKK leader David Duke).

 

This connection to terror is particularly troubling, considering the SPLC’s most recent “hate map” — a diagram showing every single Confederate monument across the United States, which also includes elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. The SPLC warned of “turmoil and bloodshed” should these statues not be taken down.

The group has also been rather slow to admit fault and remove innocent towns from the “hate map” that inspired the FRC shooting. The SPLC falsely listed the historic Iowa town of Amana Colonies as the home of the notorious white supremacist website Daily Stormer. When challenged, the group argued that Daily Stormer writers had met for a book club in one of the town’s restaurants. The SPLC finally removed the town this week.

 

Muslim Reformer Joins Christians in Suing Far-Left Terror-Linked Organization for “Hate” Defamation

 

In spite of all this, the SPLC has been raking in the cash after the riots in Charlottesville, Va. George Clooney and his wife Amal pledged $1 million to the group, and the company J.P. Morgan pledged $500,000. Apple CEO Tim Cook was even more generous, announcing his company would give $1 million to the SPLC and that it would set up a system in iTunes software to let consumers directly donate to the organization.

 

Earlier this month, Lyft announced it would partner with the SPLC “to provide educational resources for drivers.” MGM Resorts announced that it would match employee contributions to the SPLC dollar-for-dollar. Some companies already follow this policy.

 

According to an analysis by Second Vote provided to PJ Media, companies such as Disney, Kraft Heinz, Charles Schwab, Progressive Insurance, Shell, and Verizon have matched their employees’ small-dollar donations to the SPLC. The big offenders are: Pfizer, which gave the SPLC $8,919.5 in 2013 and 2015 combined; Bank of America, which gave the SPLC $9,310 between 2013 and 2015; and Newman’s Own, which gave the group $50,000 between 2013 and 2015.

 

Each of these contributions pale in comparison to the gifts from George Clooney, J.P. Morgan, and Apple, but they are still noteworthy.

 

To make matters worse, the SPLC does not need any of this money. The group is a cash cow, recording more than $50 million in contributions and $328 million in net assets (according to its 2015 Form 990). The Washington Free Beacon reported multiple transactions to foreign entities, including two cash payments of $2.2 million to funds in the Cayman Islands.

 

CNN broadcast the SPLC’s “hate map” on its website and Twitter account this month (with the FRC still marked on the map). In June, the charity navigation website GuideStar adopted the SPLC “hate group” list, marking each profile of the targeted organizations as a “hate group.” ABC and NBC parroted the SPLC’s “hate group” label against Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) last month.

 

 

 

IT’S ON: Christian Group Sues SPLC and Amazon Over “Hate Group” Designation

 

“The SPLC depicts itself as a big champion of rights, but it’s become a champion of wrongs,” Dan Gainor, vice president of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center, told PJ Media in an email statement. “It is no longer the civil rights era group that many of its supporters believe. It now exists largely to attack groups it doesn’t agree with and to fundraise millions and millions of dollars off of uninformed donors.”

 

Gainor warned that “the media make this far worse by legitimizing the group’s so-called ‘hate list.’ In reality, that list is a bizarre mix of good conservative groups and disturbing fringe organizations. The SPLC sees no difference between a group defending the rights of Christians in court and the Klan.”

 

“The media credential this awful hate group and rarely report that some of the SPLC’s biggest fans are dangerous criminals,” Gainor added. He mentioned Floyd Lee Corkins and James Hodgkinson.

 

Apple, J.P. Morgan, George Clooney, Lyft, MGM Resorts, and any organization that partners with the SPLC should know what it’s getting into.

 

Corporate America should not support a group that exists to tar mainstream organizations as “hate groups,” inciting violence against them. It should not bankroll an organization that targets innocent towns and elementary schools as purveyors of hate. It should not support a “poverty” organization that sends millions of dollars to accounts in the Cayman Islands. Enough is enough.
