Los Angeles (9/7/2017) – A nationwide coalition of conservative groups, which includes Freedom X, today sent a letter to national medial outlets demanding they stop relying on a “hate map” cooked by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center defaming Christians and conservatives who support our national sovereignty, are concerned about Islam’s influence on American culture and oppose the LGBT+ agenda.
The letter, co-signed by founder and chief counsel Bill Becker, states in part:
“To associate public interest law firms and think tanks with neo-Nazis and the KKK is unconscionable, and represents the height of irresponsible journalism. All reputable news organizations should immediately stop using the SPLC’s descriptions of individuals and organizations based on its obvious political prejudices.”
The SPLC hate map and the media’s reliance on it amounts to a new asymmetrical tactic to silence conservative expression. Actually, it’s genius. The mainstream media shares a left-wing orthodoxy. Using the hate map to smear conservative and Christian groups is a happy partnership in the resistance culture and socialist revolution we are undergoing.
Freedom X is not on the map. Yet. But those who are, like our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Council, Pacific Justice Institute, Family Research Council and others, have already discovered what it means to be listed. Just last week, two lawsuits were filed against the SPLC, Guidestar (the non-profit aggregator) and Amazon. Guidestar and AmazonSmile reject for eligibility any charitable organization the SPLC has designated to be a hate group.
And here’s some additional scary stuff. Recently, Apple, J.P. Morgan Chase Bank and George and Amal Clooney donated a combined $2.5 million to the SPLC. And the SPLC is reported to have $69 million in cash parked offshore.
The SPLC has the power to destroy conservatives in America. Once the media, Hollywood and corporate America buys into this new McCarthyism, it will be hard to turn things around.
The work we do to protect conservatives from attacks by the left is offered to our clients on a pro bono basis because most people can’t afford to have their First Amendment rights vindicated in court. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the cause of freedom.
