Staff and leadership at the Southern Poverty Law Center often visit the Biden White House, according to White House visitor records. Cooperation between the federal government and the SPLC should threaten the American people as the federal government expands its domestic security apparatus and intelligence agencies.
White House records show that SPLC members visited the White House at least 11 times over a three-year period. The meetings also involved Mr. Biden himself, who is referred to as “POTUS” – short for “president of the United States” – and often featured senior members of his cabinet. This frequent discussion shows that On the left is the Biden Administration continue to cooperate closely in hunting down groups that are said to be enemies.
As co-author of this article Tyler O’Neil wrote in his book “Paying for Hate: The Corruption of the Southern Poverty Law Center,” the SPLC has built on its record of suing the Klu Klux Klan for refunds by declaring major religious and Christian groups “hate groups,” putting them on maps with KKK heads.
The SPLC’s Chief Policy Officer, LaShawn Warren, recently visited the White House to meet with POTUS on Feb. 16, 2023. Soon the White House used the SPLC to do the work. agreement to prevent antisemitism. Brandon Jones, SPLC political director, met with Amanda Trocola, the vice president’s deputy culture secretary, in December 2022; and Joseph Levin, outgoing member of the SPLC board of directors, met twice with Cynthia Bernstein, director of management and administration for the Office of the Vice President.
The January 6 meeting between SPLC Intelligence Project Director Susan Corke and National Security Council Counterterrorism Director John Picarelli drew public attention, considering the SPLC’s decision later to add parent rights groups to its “hate map.” The SPLC started to monitor the Klan, the Intelligence Project, is now publishing a “hate map.”
Corke’s meeting took place six months before the SPLC publicly criticized middle-class parenting groups such as Moms for Liberty and Parents Defending Education. The SPLC wrote this parental rights groups on his “hate map” with the Neo-Nazi movement and the KKK.
As the Biden administration continues to meet with members of the SPLC, we can expect a second wave of persecution directed at Christian and conservative groups.
The SPLC’s activism has been linked to several violent incidents around the world, including but not limited to the physical assault of American Enterprise Institute analyst Charles Murray. Before that, the SPLC called Murray a “white nationalist,” singling him out as a target for left-wing groups. Because of this, a group of people beat Murray and seriously injured one of his friends.
Similarly, a gunman revealed that the SPLC’s “anti-semitic map” was what inspired him to lead the Family Research Council headquarters in 2012. A law enforcement officer politely detained the gunman but shot him. Despite this, to date, the SPLC has kept the FRC on the “hate map”.
In recent news, SPLC attorney Thomas Webb Jurgens is meeting domestic terrorism case after the police arrested him following a series of attacks involving Molotov cocktails and rocks thrown at a police training facility in Atlanta. The founders, including Jurgens, destroyed several construction sites at the protest site “Cop City.” No one was hurt by the rioters, but police said the incident led to serious injuries. The SPLC said that Mr. Jurgens “worked for the government, documenting the violation of civil rights.”
Public scrutiny has raised some questions about the SPLC’s intentions and organizational integrity. In 2019, the SPLC fired its co-founder, Morris Dees, over allegations of workplace misconduct including racism and harassment. O’Neil’s book, cited above, recognizes that Dees’ mistakes seem to represent the SPLC’s mistakes as an organization.
Indeed, Bob Moser, a former SPLC staffer who left the site when Dees was fired, has publicly admitted that the SPLC has been running a campaign of expropriation as a legitimate cause of action. Moser described the SPLC’s “hateful” accusations as “a highly profitable hoax.”
As a result of these horrific events the SPLC has faced numerous defamation lawsuits over their allegations.
The SPLC paid a heavy price to Islamic reformer Maajid Nawaz after he denounced him as an “Anti-Muslim Extremist.” In addition, the Dustin Inman Society’s DA King solved a major problem in this case blasphemy, which is now entering the discovery stage. The SPLC has previously and publicly stated that the Dustin Inman Society was not a “hate group” before changing how the two organizations were politically charged.
In fact, Moser previously worked on King’s profile at the SPLC’s Intelligence Project and at the time admitted that the first iteration of King’s organization was not a hate group.
The government continues to rely on the SPLC despite the organization’s questionable tactics and unsavory history. This raises concerns about the future of the Biden administration, especially in light of new legislation on school education and gender issues. The Biden administration also has a history of targeting concerned parents and working with other people to match them with domestic criminals.
