Each year, the Southern Poverty Law Center, of which I am the president, compiles and publishes a census of domestic hate groups.
Our list, which is cited extensively by journalists, academics and government officials alike, provides an important barometer—not the only one, of course—to help us understand the state of hate and extremism in America.
In recent weeks, we’ve received a number of requests to name Black Lives Matter a hate group, particularly in the wake of the murders of eight police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Numerous conservative commentators have joined the chorus. There is even a Change.org petition calling for the hate group label.
Tensions in the BLM group came to a head after Bernie Sanders was run offstage in 2015 during an election rally.
From there BLM branched out to demand segregated ‘safe spaces’. Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers, calling for ‘safe spaces’ on campuses meant only for so-called students of color, no Whites allowed. Then came college coffee shops that only allowed ‘people of color’. Segregation has a new name! It’s called ‘safe spaces’. Anti-Racism has become completely indistinguishable from racism.
The Obama administration is delivering a list of guidelines for college administrators who must respond to allegations of racial mistreatment and “white privilege” on college campuses, after widely publicized incidents at Yale and the University of Missouri created by student protesters.
Focusing on anti-white ‘safe spaces’ escalated into attacks on law enforcement:
- In September, 2015, Black Lives Matter activist Joseph Ponder shot a police officer in in Kentucky.
- Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder was gunned down in Kentucky by Joseph Johnson Shanks; an Obama supporter, a Black Lives Matter activist, a registered Democrat, and Shanks attended Mike Brown’s funeral in Ferguson.
- An Army veteran “upset about Black Lives Matter” and “recent police shootings” opened fire Thursday night in Dallas in an attack on police officers — identified by police as Micah Xavier Johnson. Five police officers were killed and seven were wounded, officials said.
- On Sunday July 17, 2016, Gavin Long, ‘BLM’ member from Kansas City, drove to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and shot dead three cops and injured three more. Long was in Louisiana to get revenge on the police department that “killed” Alton Sterling.
The ‘Black Lives Murder’ Kill List:
At least 11 police officers have been shot dead and several shot and injured by Black Lives Matter activists since the movement began in August 2014.
But BLM is not a ‘hate group’ according to the SPLC. It’s the fault of ‘Whitey’ again. The SPLC (and the media) paints a picture of an aggrieved Black population experiencing an ‘epidemic’ of irrational police shootings. The reality is that more European-Americans are shot by law enforcement than African-Americans. But only African-Americans get the media “outrage”.
Richard Cohen writes:
Generally speaking, hate groups are, by our definition, those that vilify entire groups of people based on immutable characteristics such as race or ethnicity. Federal law takes a similar approach.
While it’s no surprise, given our country’s history, [What country? Israel?] that most domestic hate groups hold white supremacist views, there are a number of black organizations on our hate group list as well.
SPLC is not an advocacy group. They are pro-minority ONLY! It’s always the fault of “Whitey”.
Does anyone take the SPLC serious? An internet search will easily point out how the founder, Morris Dees, was charged with suborning perjury (a felony) during the famous 1975 murder trial of Joan Little for allegedly trying to influence a witness’ testimony. On August 7, 1975, the charges were later dropped, however the Judge refused to allow Dees back into the courtroom.
Fron the Chicago Tribune, July 30, 1975 (archives):
The paragons of social justice at the SPLC racket make one wonder how many other dishonest acts and “white lies” have we missed? Can we trust the SPLC and their motives?
BLM activists told white media to get to the back on Tuesday, July 24. The organizer of a “Black DNC Resistance March” in Philadelphia Tuesday demanded white supporters and media move to back of the crowd.
“Black Lives Matter” IS a hate group, plain and simple.
