URGENT: Stop the Blacklist


Another reminder from the Freedom Center, about that new and sinister tactic by the far-left SPLC!

Will you sign our STOP THE BLACKLIST Petition right away? 

The Blacklist is a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a leftwing smear site which began its career decades ago attacking actual hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan… 

…but over the years shifted its agenda to discrediting an array of conservative organizations and individuals who happen to disagree with its far-left agendas. 

As one of SPLC’s own executives, Mark Potock, admitted in an unguarded moment, “Our criteria for a ‘hate group’ has nothing to do with criminality or violence… It’s strictly ideological.” 

In a saner time, the Southern Poverty Law Center would be dismissed as a nasty fringe organization. 

But in today’s inflamed political atmosphere where fake news has replaced the real thing, the SPLC blacklist of “hateful” conservative groups has been accepted by credulous liberal media outlets like CNN and by social media sites like Facebook and Google, which have posted the SPLC’s slanders as though they came from a non-partisan authority. 

In fact, no organization in America has spewed more hate than the SPLC itself. 

In 2012, after reading about the Family Research Council on the SPLC website, a man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the FRC headquarters with an automatic pistol and would have “killed as many of them as possible” if he hadn’t been stopped by a security guard whom he badly wounded. 

And over the summer, a man named James Hodgkin stalked a Congressional baseball practice and shot Congressman Steve Scalise and two security guards because he had read that Scalise was a racist on the SPLC Facebook page. 

Real hate has real consequences. 

the Freedom Center is fighting back against the Southern Poverty Law Center and the blacklist it has created. 

Our lawyers have gotten Pay Pal and Guidestar to rescind their listing of us as a “hate group,” and are working on bloodmoney.org, Discover, CNN and Google. 

We are in this fight not only to protect our own ability to continue raising the funds that allow us to be the left’s worst enemy, but also to make sure that the left does not stamp out conservatism in this country along with free speech itself.
