The SPLC has strayed from it's original charter and has moved into full blown, leftist ideology. I hope the currently leadership is investigated and held accountable for any laws broken during their tenure.

As long as the SPLC is useful as a front organization to provide a patina of respectability for censorship by Leftist technology oligarchs like those running Google and Facebook they will continue to receive their bribe money.

SPLC founder and public face of the organization engaged in conduct that was so excessive he had to be dismissed. But, the obvious implications for the credibility of the SPLC's consistent pattern of declaring hate groups based on partisan bias is conveniently ignored.

AND the president (and legal director) of the SPLC resigned last week...

It's always interesting to read the critical comments from the "Right" that have nothing to offer in addressing a real problem in the United States.

The SPLC has an outstanding record in taking on hate groups in the United States and fighting for the rights of minorities as noted:

Quote:
Over at National Review, David French urges the SPLC to "rediscover its roots." The organization used to do much more work aligned with its name: representing impoverished death row inmates, for example, and battling the KKK in court. It has plenty of money, and could hire an army of lawyers to really make a difference in the lives of criminal defendants.
Are there problems with racial prejudice at the SPLC? Arguably so because even liberals have a serious problem in addressing racial prejudice. In a 2012 study it was found that slightly more than 30% of self-proclaimed Democrats expressed explicit anti-black racial prejudice. Democrats and liberals in general need to address this problem and they are doing that.

What does the "Right" and Republicans have to match this? In that same study from 2012 79% those self-identified as Republicans expressed explicit anti-black racial prejudice and Republicans are doing nothing about it. In fact the Republican President of the United States is a self-avowed White Nationalist that has empowered the hate groups in American leading to more violent attacks against religious and racial minorities in the United States based upon FBI statistics.

The "Right" doesn't have any organization that performs the work of the SPLC and with all of it's minor flaws the SPLC is still leading the charge against hate groups of all kinds because the "Right" doesn't have any organization engaged in fighting against the hate and violence of right-wing extremists.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.
