The Southern Poverty Law Center: From Klan Hunters to Multimillion-dollar Smear Machine–A Very Deep Rabbit Hole

This was the last straw for me.

This is somewhat personal, I remain forever grateful to the SPLC for dealing with a very serious Skinhead problem that had been growing like cancer on the West Coast. Including my hometown of Vancouver

 

Some of these images are more recent

Now if you remember living in Vancouver in the late 80’s and early 90’s you’ll remember these shitstain skinheads hanging out at Granville and Georgia. These assholes acted like they owned the city. They openly intimidated and swore at anyone who wasn’t white that also happened to include yours truly. I can remember many people myself included simply not going up the escalators in the nearby building and crossing over to the other side of Pacific Center to not have to deal with these idiots. That wasn’t all they openly and brazenly fought with and tried to push around the other more established gangs, in particular, the Asian ones. There was even a full out fight between The Skinheads and The Largest Asian Gang in Vancouver that happened in 1989. I can’t confirm that this happened, but I did hear the rumors. What stood out though was the fact that in terms of numbers the Asian Gangs in Vancouver were a lot bigger. But somehow for that fight, there were rumors that The Skinheads had pulled in support from outside Vancouver for help.

By the time I returned to Vancouver in 1993 they were no longer there. I didn’t find out what had happened until a few years later when I found out about Mulugeta Seraw.

These were real racists and white supremacists. Not the manufactured type that you see Black Lives Matter create to justify their existence. I was quite relieved to not see them hanging around there anymore. The SPLC was actually something to be proud of back then. They helped take down WAR (White Aryan Resistance) which was rapidly turning into an organized crime syndicate.

That’s why it pains me to have to write this organization off like I have with so many of the other institutions that I used to believe in. What was once an organization that fought for the civil rights of people that couldn’t otherwise fight back, has now devolved into a money making scheme where the organization simply creates racist and hate group bogeymen to justify its existence.

I’m just going to run down the things that I know have happened in the past few months with the SPLC

First, the SPLC is no longer a trusted source of information with the FBI who dumped them

Then there was the SPLC labeling Mens Rights as a hate group

And of course their idiotic attacks on Kekistan

Not done yet there’s also their involvement in the recent YouTube Purge a few weeks back

And then there was the video I recently saw that was done by John Stossel

Then, of course, there were all of the other videos I found as I was doing the research and finding the links to these videos on YouTube.

Sam Harris on SPLC, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maajid Nawaz

This is just YouTube if I didn’t need to be up in a couple of hours I would’ve also started digging up news articles.

As you can see the SPLC from where I’m sitting is no longer the institution it once was in the past.

“The SPLC, after all, is the group that had once, nearly four decades ago, protected Vietnamese shrimpers from the Klan in Galveston Bay, sued several white supremacist groups out of existence, and delivered justice to the family Mulugeta Seraw, an Ethiopian student bludgeoned to death by members of a Neo-Nazi group in Portland, Oregon”

That quote is taken from the original and only webpage link in this blog.

Now much like Feminists, BLM and few others it’s only purpose appears to be creating new opponents, some real some not. While there may be some legitimate fighting against true racists and hate groups in North America. There is, for instance, a very nasty strain of Anti-Semitism running through the Deplorables. Not everyone of course but there have been people that I otherwise respect that go right off the rails when it comes to this issue. Mostly though it would appear that the SPLC like Feminists are simply generating enemies and issues to fight to fill their coffers and justify their existence.

So while I’m grateful that the SPLC got rid of a nasty bunch of people in my hometown, albeit indirectly. This organization needs to redefine itself to fit the changing landscape. There is more than enough injustice overseas and internationally that it could help out with.

This isn’t the first organization I’ve lost faith in. Greenpeace (An organization FOUNDED in Vancouver) had sold itself out much earlier. And I could go into stories about them if I had the time. But in the meantime as long as the rot and corruption continue to fester this badly on the left. People like myself and Lindsay Shepherd are being left with no other choice but to abandon the left. There are more than a few of us out there.
