    The Fall of the Southern Poverty Law Center

    Interesting little factoid I had not seen anywhere else. The SPLC has always been a left wing propaganda organizsation to me, so not surprised.

    The fall of the Southern Poverty Law Center - Hoystory.com

    In fact, just days after the local paper cited the SPLC as a go-to source, the New York Post reported that the group’s recent non-scientific report on “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” failed to report that about 20 percent of respondents reported anti-white slurs.

    But the SPLC didn’t present the whole story. The Montgomery, Ala.-based nonprofit self-censored results from a key question it asked educators — whether they agree or disagree with the following statement: “I have heard derogatory language or slurs about white students.”

    Asked last week to provide the data, SPLC initially said it was having a hard time getting the information “from the researchers.” Pressed, SPLC spokeswoman Kirsten Bokenkamp finally revealed that “about 20 percent answered affirmatively to that question.”

    Bokenkamp did not provide an explanation for the absence of such a substantial metric — at least 2,000 bias-related incidents against white students — from the report, which focuses instead on “anti-immigrant sentiment,” “anti-Muslim sentiment” and “slurs about students of color” related to the election.

    Anyone with half a brain and an understanding of what the SPLC has turned into knows the answer to that. It’s an answer that affects a lot of the community of narrative journalists as well.

    Anti-white slurs and “bias incidents” don’t fit the narrative that the 2016 election was a “white”-wash and a result of a rising tide of neo-nazism, KKK, and white bigotry across the nation as a whole.

    The SPLC also released data on self-reported hate crimes that it made no effort to check. I’ve no doubt that a not insubstantial number of those reports will also turn out to be fabricated.
    Report buried Trump-related ?hate crimes? against white kids | New York Post

    At least 2,000 educators around the country reported racist slurs and other derogatory language leveled against white students in the first days after Donald Trump was elected president. But the group that surveyed the teachers didn’t publish the results in its report on Trump-related “hate crimes.”
    The SPLC’s widely cited report — “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” — reported that 40 percent of the more than 10,000 educators who responded to the survey “have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation.”

    The takeaway was that Trump-supporting white kids have been harassing minorities at the nation’s schools. And SPLC’s schools report, along with a broader report on alleged Trump-inspired hate crimes — “Ten Days After: Harassment and Intimidation in the Aftermath of the Election” — sparked breathless coverage in the New York Times, Washington Post and other major media.
    They left that result out because it would not fit their ideological narrative,” former Education Department civil rights attorney Hans Bader said. “It was deemed an inconvenient truth.” “These flawed SPLC reports will be cited by left-wing special interests to try to block the confirmation of moderate and conservative people to posts such as attorney general by falsely making it look like America’s schools and streets are pervaded by bigotry,” Bader said.
    Cohen tied Trump to a number of hate crimes, which he warns will only “spike” once he’s inaugurated. He noted his center recorded 867 alleged anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and anti-black hate crimes in the 10 days following Trump’s Nov. 8 win.

    But the SPLC acknowledges that it has not independently verified any of the claims. It collected most of them on its website, many anonymously.


    The group won’t use its $315 million in assets to investigate the “hate crimes,” or at least help alleged victims file police reports or provide them counseling or other assistance, but it has offered “sympathy.”

    The SPLC, creators of fake news. Typical Progs though.

    So one reporter for the NY Post makes a claim that he can't back with any proof other than what he says and that now is considered a "Fact"?

    I guess that's the goal posts now - screw facts, I will just take someone's word for it that I agree with.

    Apparently - kind like of your kooky Amazon author.

    Sorry his sources do back up his statements. But then again, Left Coast liberals have not been much on checking sources.

    Southern Poverty Law Center omits Trump-related 'hate crimes' against white children - Washington Times

    The lawyer added that SPLC’s standards for what constitutes a hate crime would not hold up in a court of law, as it includes common rhetoric about contested political issues.
    “It is simply ridiculous that SPLC treats ‘build the wall’ as hate rhetoric,” Mr. Bader said.
    One anonymous teacher from Michigan told the group that white students were overhead saying, “build the wall; lock her up.” Another anonymous teacher from Indiana heard students tell strangers that President-elect Trump would throw them “back over the wall.”
    A panel from the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights responded to SPLC’s report last Friday by calling for increased federal funding for prosecuting hate crimes.

    Report Documenting Trump Related "Hate Crimes" Left Off One HUGE Detail | The Federalist Papers

    In the days after President-Elect Donald Trump’s victory, there were at least 2,000 incidents of racist slurs and derogatory language used against white students — but it was never reported by a group that focuses on “hate crimes.”

    The takeaway from the report was that Trump-supporting white students were harassing minority students at record levels. The SPLC also produced another document of “Trump-inspired hate crimes” called “Ten Days After.”

    In addition, the SPLC counted phrases like “build the wall” as “hate rhetoric.” They cited 467 incidents of a student saying “build the wall” in their data.

    SPLC President Richard Cohen said in a press conference that Donald Trump has been “singing the white supremacist song since he came down the escalator in his tower and announced his candidacy.”

    The New York Post and The Washington Times are fake news outlets apparently. It's completley absurd that SPLC could omit data that didn't fit their agenda.
