“The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has labeled FAIR as a hate group”
This is the same SPLC that claims that the largest category of “hate group” in the country is Black and/or Muslim.
The company counted 201 Black Separatist and Black Muslim groups (listed under “General Hate”) for 2016, which far outnumber its 130 alleged Ku Klux Klan groups outright and all of its neo-Nazi, racist skinhead and white nationalist groups by two-to-one, respectively, and yet, nobody in the Media will report on this particular SPLC factoid.
The Media dutifully repeats the SPLC claims that the 101 alleged anti-Muslim groups it counted for 2016 somehow pose an existential threat to society but somehow do not consider the SPLC’s 89 alleged Muslim “hate groups” to be newsworthy. That’s nearly a one-to-one ratio.
If the SPLC are going to be your go-to experts on “hate,” then you pretty much have to accept ALL of their claims, no matter how ridiculous they are
