SPLC ‘Hate’ Report Takes Aim at Donald Trump Ahead of 2020 Election

On Wednesday, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released its annual report on “hate groups” for 2019. The report smears conservative and Christian groups as “hate groups” and exaggerates the threats from marginalized racist groups, in what former employees have described as a “highly profitable scam” to bilk donors. Yet the SPLC also goes out of its way to smear President Donald Trump, connecting him with various forms of “hate.”

The report accuses Trump’s campaign of having “energized white nationalists.” It accuses the president of sidling up to “anti-LGBTQ hate groups” and hiring staffers from “anti-immigrant hate groups” and “anti-Muslim hate groups.” It suggests the president’s rhetoric inspired white supremacist terrorist attacks. It does not explicitly call Trump a white nationalist, but it heavily implies such a false accusation.

What is the truth behind such attacks? As I document in my book, Making Hate Pay: The Corruption of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the SPLC began as a noble civil rights group but has long since yielded to many forms of corruption. Last year, it fired its co-founder Morris Dees in a racial discrimination and sexual harassment scandal. That scandal led former employees to confess their complicity in the “con” of bilking donors by exaggerating hate. The SPLC promised an internal review last March, but it has yet to release any results. It faces also numerous defamation lawsuits for slandering law-abiding conservative and Christian groups.

The SPLC has become a far-left smear factory, an engine of political warfare. Indeed, the report released Wednesday frames its mission of “fighting hate” in political terms.

“It is time to move beyond the illusion that hate violence and extremism is merely a criminal crisis in America. It is also a political crisis. It has to be engaged politically,” the report states. Indeed, the SPLC mentions Trump’s name no less than 66 times and features images of the president, his Twitter profile, and his staff.

“As the country continues to experience white nationalist terror, extremist ideas long believed outside of the realm of legitimate politics are penetrating deeply into the mainstream, spawning public policies that target immigrants, LGBTQ people and Muslims. The Trump administration has installed members of hate groups into government—particularly those with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim or anti-LGBTQ animus—and put in place highly punitive policies that seemed unthinkable just a few short years ago,” the report warns. “These political moves will far outlast this administration, as Trump and his allies in the U.S. Senate have pushed through hundreds of new federal judges, many of whom are hostile to civil rights concerns and will serve for decades.”

So what are these “hate groups” Trump has embraced? Conservative and Christian organizations, many with impressive pedigrees.

SPLC Releases Fear-Mongering ‘Hate Map’ Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), for example, has played a role in 56 Supreme Court victories (10 in the last decade). Trump has nominated judges with ties to ADF because it is one of the premier law firms in the country. Yet the SPLC insists on accusing it of being a “hate group” comparable to the Ku Klux Klan because it advocates for traditional Christian values and religious freedom against the increasingly radical LGBT activist wing.

The Family Research Council (FRC) is a leading conservative Christian think tank and advocacy group. Its president, Tony Perkins, is the current chairman of the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom. Yet the SPLC has accused FRC of being a “hate group,” and one deranged man tried to kill everyone in the building and smear a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich in their faces because of that accusation. This terrorist attack was foiled but FRC remains on the list. The SPLC report shows a picture of Trump with Perkins at an FRC conference.

Both of these “anti-LGBTQ hate groups” uphold the dignity of all people, regardless of sexual orientation, but they advocate policies the SPLC vehemently disagrees with. The report characterizes Trump’s policies championing biological sex over transgender identity and upholding religious liberty as attacks on the LGBT community.

The SPLC also attacked Trump for tapping Charles Kupperman, a top aide to John Bolton, to become his acting national security advisor, noting that Kupperman previously served on the board of the Center for Security Policy (CSP). The report slams SCP as an “anti-Muslim hate group,” but its president, Fred Fleitz, has insisted that “Muslim-Americans are an important part of our society, of the fabric of our society. They are doctors and lawyers, friends and neighbors. I don’t want to see anyone discriminated against based on race, or religion or gender.” CSP, like many the SPLC accuses of being “anti-Muslim,” merely warns against the ideology behind radical Islamist terror.

The SPLC report also slams Trump for hiring Stephen Miller and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, tying them to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). CIS opposes illegal immigration and FAIR calls for immigration restrictions, policies with which the SPLC vehemently disagrees.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has asked the IRS to re-examine the SPLC’s tax-exempt status due to its partisan political attacks. The SPLC launched a 501(c)4 branch, the SPLC Action Fund, but this report was published by the ostensibly non-political 501(c)3 nonprofit.

    1. My thoughts exactly!!! Those who mention race are normally the racists!! Funny how Christian and Conservative bashing is so acceptable to them! I believe they need to pick the log out of their own eyes before picking a speck out of others….

      1. “Those who mention race are normally the racists!!”

        Does that mean Martin Luther King was a racist.

    2. “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions,” should be the SPLC’s, ACLU’s and other “do good” organizations motto. Well meaning organizations are easily infiltrated by radical leftists anti-Americans and there is no good reason for the Government to help finance it’s own demise through tax advantages, is there? Of course the tax exempt status of the SPLC should be revoked!!

    1. Mr. Trump should issue an exec order right now declaring ANTIFA, NAACP, BLM, SPLC, KKK, and similar organizations as “domestic terrorist organizations” and direct the IRS by exec order to revoke those organizations’ tax exempt/non profit/501(c)(3) or (c)(4) statuses…

      1. RM:
        That would be a terrific idea,!
        They should all be declared “ DOMESTIC
        TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS! But this should be done ASAP! EXECUTIVE ORDERS , really work, the 44th made a lot of them.

  1. You SPLC stupid morons what are y’all going to do about all deplorable communist racist democrats?
    Nothing because you are the same slime
    Where are you going to hide cowards

  2. Why does this bunch get away with having tax-exempt status? SPLC is about as neutral as ACORN!

    Their tax status should be changed immediately!

  3. The SPLC has gown far left. From here on out there leadership is just like CNN ,MSNBC
    VOX and many other outlets and individuals who lie and beat the Socialist, Communist drum. These people are to be dismissed as anti American anti constitutalist anarchists.

  4. And we care what these haters think? They are insignificant in the greater scheme of things. As I always say, you don’t like it here or what this country stands for……LEAVE SOON!

  5. The SPLC is and has been through out it’s history. a leftist, hate filled organization. It is primarily anti-American and should be prosecuted as such. They tag anyone or any organization which does not think as they do. So, why give any credence to this minority group?

    1. There is no proof that the SPLC is “anti-American.” And what should it be “prosecuted” for. As far as we know, none of its members have committed any crime, or even accused or suspected of a crime, for that matter.
      Besides, you can’t prosecute an entire organization, only individuals.

  6. The SPLC, ANTIFA, CAIR , BLM etc. Should all be declared domestic terrorist groups and ordered disbanded. They ARE the racists. They are the divisive. They are mentally ill, deranged and dangerous. I would imagine that Hillary advises all of these groups.

  7. This isn’t bad news, this is GOOD NEWS !! Any time you are ‘criticized’ by this “RED” organization, you can be CERTAIN that you’re doing something RIGHT !!!

  8. Believe it or not good will deal with them soon enough. He is deciding who lives and who dies. This is truly the days of judgement. Trump 2020. 2024! 2028?

    1. In the first place, I think you meant to write “God,” not “good.”

      Second, if Trump is reelected this year, he cannot run for again in 2024, or 2028, or whenever, because he would have already served two terms as President, the maximum allowed by the 22nd Amendment to the United States Constitution (ratified in 1951).

      Ironically, it was the REPUBLICANS who thought up the idea of the 22nd Amendment, because they didn’t like the idea of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Democrat, being elected four times (Roosevelt died a few months into his fourth term).

      1. Sorry, I left out a word. I meant to write “cannot run for PRESIDENT again,” but I left out the word “President.” Unfortunately, this website doesn’t have any way of editing or correcting a post.

        Also, I don’t understand how my post was printed twice.

  9. SPLC is the biggest RACIST SUPPORTER in Atlanta, Georgia! Just as ACLU HAS become Anti-america! Both don’t deserve TAXES CREDIT ON AMERICANS CITIZEN WHO ARE TAXPAYERS! We don’t support HATE LIKE THESE PEOPLE! President of these companies should resign ! HATE OTHER PEOPLE IS NO DIFFERENT IN HATE FOR JESUS CHRIST!

  10. If you are black and SUPPORT this group you got to be kind of stupid! Tell me what has SPLC DONE FOR YOU? Are you still living in a neighborhood were other BLACK be shoot you? That is the problem in the community if that what you call it! Because as long as I have been living there NOTHING THESE GROUP HAS DONE FOR YOU! BUT YOU have pay for their Mansion and BMW! SAME THING IN THE NAACP!

  11. Bella Pelosi, better known as Dracula. Sneaked in a 1 billion Dollar funding for Plan Parenthood (The abortion factory) in the Coronavirus bill. Never let a crisis go to waste is one of the Demoncrat 10 Satan Commandments.

    Wuhan Virus AKA: Coronavirus weaponized by China and their treasonous Godless demoncratic Commie party and cohorts the fake media, academia, Hollywood, Millennials…to crash the greatest US economy ever! And to take down the greatest president ever, President Trump!! Keep up the great work President Trump! 2020 and beyond! From the Patriots of a Commie Demoncrat free America!

  12. When did going to Church become HATEFUL. Where are you people getting your information. A good Christian or a good Jew will always respect the others place of worship. Where does the Southern Poverty Law Center get it’s funding? Some outside Country that wants to cause problems in the United States.

    You might not know this or remember that the SPLC provided legal counsel to members of the KKK and they have the gall to accuse Churches of being a hate group.

  13. As a lawyer that grew up in Eufaula,Alabama, you members of the SpLc, should shut up shop and find a real life! You are all a holes!

  14. SPLC NEED TO PUT THEIR NAME AT THE TOP OF THE HATE GROUP IN THE WHOLE AMERICAS .THEY RANK WITH THE GESTAPO OR THE SS OF GERMANY .MOST RACIEST PREJUDICE HATE GROUP OR ORGANIZATION ANY WHERE .

  15. This organization is itself the creator of all things connected with hate. Only time will tell what will happen, because of the rhetoric being used. I can’t believe the stupidity that’s allowed to infiltrate this country. Gruess Gott

  16. HATE. WHY is it? THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH LAND. DOES EVERY RACE WANT IT ALL? SOME PEOPLE GO TO EVERY COUNTRY TO TRY TO OVER POPULATE IT. SOME PEOPLE GOT THE IDEA (DEVIDE & MULTIPLY) YET THEY CAN NOT
    SUPPORT WHAT THEY HAVE. WHEN ALL PEOPLE GOT TOGETHER THEY DO STUPID THINGS, LIKE THE TOWER OF
    BABBEL, IT ANGERED THE LORD. (SOURSE SMITHSONION TV. & THE BIBLE.), THE LORD SENT PEOPLE TO FORM
    DIFFERENT NATIONS WITH DIFFERENT SPEACH SOUNDS. THE PEOPLE THAT BUILT THAT TOWER ARE SAID TO
    BE THE FIRST JEWS. AND ALL OTHER NATIONS WERE GIVEN LAND TO LOVE AND CARE FOR, BY THE LORD.
    In EACH NATION SOME WERE WEALTHY. GODS HOPE TO HELP THEIR POOR. NOBODY CAN HAVE EVERYTHING THEIR WAY. just info(THE TEMPLE WAS 300feet By 3oo feet MAX HEIGHT300 feet DUE TO MATERIAL AVAILBLE MUD BRICKS. in IRAG near IRAN)

  17. True Christians are not advocating violence against “other” groups they may disagree with ideologically. I do not agree with LGBTQ philosophy or lifestyle choices. That does not mean I advocate that they all be burned at the stake. On the other hand those of us who believe the LGBTQ life is not the best choice for us for WHATEVER reason deserve the freedom to make THAT CHOICE. The LGBTQ community seems to have the idea of freedom for me to choose but not for you. I can agree with your right to choose but you have no right to force me to say you have made the right choice.
