The “Anti-Hate” Group That Is a Hate Group

The “Anti-Hate” Group That Is a Hate Group


Shutting down people you don’t agree with
is about as un-American as you can get. Rigorous debate, honest discussion, open exchange
of ideas—that’s the American way. But free thinking and speech are threatened
today by a group with a sweet-sounding name that conceals a nefarious purpose. This group is called the Southern Poverty
Law Center, or SPLC. Originally founded as a civil-rights law firm
in 1971, the SPLC reinvented itself in the mid-‘80s as a political attack group. Every year now it produces a new list of people
and charities it claims are “extremists” and “haters.” Aided by glowing coverage from the establishment
media, the SPLC’s hate list has become a weapon for taking individuals and groups they
disagree with and tarring them with ugly associations. The SPLC employs a two-pronged strategy. First: find a handful of crazies, with barely
any followers, no address, and no staff, and blow them up into a dangerous movement — proof
that there are neo-Nazis lurking everywhere. On their notorious “Hate Map,” the SPLC
lists 917 separate hate groups in the U.S.! No one has even heard of more than a handful
of them. The second strategy of the SPLC is to undermine
legitimate political voices that they oppose, by associating them with extremists like the
KKK. Take the charity known as the Alliance Defending
Freedom. The SPLC lists them as a “hate group.” Is that fair? Well, the ADF has a network of 3,000 attorneys
from all across the U.S. who’ve donated more than a million volunteer hours in defense
of religious liberty. They’ve had a role in 49 victories at the
U.S. Supreme Court. Putting the Alliance Defending Freedom on
a list with 130 Ku Klux Klan chapters is not only wrong, it’s malicious. According to the SPLC, one of the most influential
social scientists in the U.S.— Charles Murray —is a, quote, “white nationalist.” Ayaan Hirsi Ali, perhaps the most eloquent
spokesperson for the rights of Muslim women, is, to the SPLC, a “toxic… anti-Muslim
extremist.” Scores of other individuals and charities
active in mainstream conservative or religious causes have likewise been branded by the Southern
Poverty Law Center as threats to society. Mind you, it is entirely fair to disagree
with any of those folks. But it is utterly unfair to call them haters
or extremists. The largest category listed by the SPLC as extremists — with 623 entries — covers groups like the Tea Party organizations that are wary
of centralized government. Last time we checked, favoring smaller government
was a mainstream and perfectly honorable American tradition. What is not honorable is the course prescribed
by a leader of the SPLC, Mark Potok, who was caught on video proclaiming the organization’s
true intentions. He told a group of supporters, quote, “the
press will describe us as ‘monitoring hate groups’…. I want to say plainly that our aim in life
is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.” Portraying someone with political views different
from your own as a public menace…is bullying. And it’s a dangerous game. Instead of reducing hate and violence, the
SPLC’s name-calling directly incites it. In March 2017, Charles Murray was trying to
discuss his acclaimed book Coming Apart at Middlebury College when he was violently attacked
by protesters inflamed by the SPLC’s labeling of him as a racist. A professor escorting Murray ended up in the
hospital. In 2012, a gunman attempted mass murder at
the Family Research Council, and failed only because the first man he shot managed to disarm
him. The attacker told the police he acted because
the SPLC had listed the Family Research Council as a hate group. It’s a vicious irony: while promoting itself
as a monitor of “hate groups,” the SPLC has in practice become a fomenter of hate. Yet the group rolls on, bigger than ever. What keeps them going? For one thing, the establishment media constantly
quote them. Scare stories about right-wing stormtroopers
are a sure way to attract eyeballs, and fit nicely with the media’s own preconceptions
of the “dangerous reactionaries” lurking out there in middle America. Second, alarmism is a great fundraising technique. Convincing people there are fascists everywhere
has turned the SPLC into a cash machine. Last year, the group hustled $50 million dollars
out of frightened liberal donors, adding to the $368 million dollars of assets they were
already sitting on. So, the next time you see the Southern Poverty
Law Center quoted in the news, just remember: the masterminds behind the SPLC aren’t eliminating
hate; they are fueling it. I’m Karl Zinsmeister for Prager University.

  1. The Portland, Oregon ANTIFA groupd seems like a violent bunch of 'loving' people… full of RAGE AND VIOLENCE… even dominating the police, instigating potential riot situatiions…. Boo-oo-oo!!!!

  2. First off, how are they any different than the right wing bigot org. that horribly bash some small, barely known local, leftist group (like ACORN) helping poor broke kids, etc.⁉️⁉️

    And secondly, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, although you have many left wing extremists constantly whining, complaining, bashing, protesting, and trying to occupy Wall Street, these hippie groups are basically "annoying at most and are usually not dangerous.

    However, the world knows right wing extremist are known to be dangerous‼️‼️‼️

    They the ones with an arsenal and garage full of arms and are the main ones that go on a shooting spree‼️‼️

    The average mass shooter is either some disgruntled, lonely, desperate, loser who can’t land a date OR right wing psychopath shooting up the place

    Whether s/he is homophobiic, a Muslim, Latino, etc. they hold extremist right wing values‼️‼️

    And when I say right wing extremist, I DON’T mean conservative biblical values, But extreme sexist, racist, conservative, delusional beliefs That are either NOWHERE in the Bible, or Such a bastardization of a biblical verse it’s Heresy ‼️‼️

  3. Gavin McInnis would have been the perfect presenter/host for this vid. Not knocking Karl Zinsmeister, he did well, just thinking that since Gavin is in the midst of fighting the SPLC at the moment, he'd have been the perfect choice.

  4. I am so glad that I stumbled upon this. My wife brought it to my attention after it popped up when she was browsing the internet. Why did she bring it to my attention? Because I told her a few years ago that I had done a complete "180" on the SPLC. But she had always been a bit dismissive of my constant harping about the SPLC. This video validated what I had been trying to articulate to her for so long….

    Many, many years ago, I had been a contributor to the SPLC because I really believed in what they did, especially with regard to the hate groups that had proliferated and taken up residence in Northern Idaho. Also, I believed in the righteous mission of the Civil Rights Era, of allowing blacks in the Deep South to exercise their constitutionally guaranteed freedoms to vote, to freely mingle in society, and to receive an education that was just as good as any that was available to whites. In short, to have the same rights as any other U.S. citizen. But with the passage of time, I began to notice that the SPLC had started to label some Christian churches as Hate groups. WHAT? We don't hate anyone! What are they talking about? We get labeled as Hateful for our deeply held belief that Homosexuality is a sin. We accept homosexuals for being who they are, but we disagree with what they DO. Heck, we've got close family members who are gay. We don't hate them! But we don't agree with homosexual conduct. We don't believe in it, we don't condone it, and we don't promote it.  

    There is a saying, "Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin." We don't hate anyone. But, to the increasingly Liberal secular society we live in, mere acceptance isn't good enough anymore. No. You must not only accept it, you must EMBRACE it and PROMOTE it. To not do so puts you at risk of being labeled a HATER. I also believe that we have to protect our borders and our sovereignty. But, to Liberals, if you believe in protecting the people of the U.S. in this terrorist age, you must be RACIST, another overused Liberal ploy. So now, the SPLC has since outgrown it's original mission and has embarked on a crusade to label anyone who DISAGREES with them, and who doesn't PROMOTE their agenda, as HATERS. I am neither of these labels, but I will NOT be intimidated into silence and betraying my values and principles just because someone says I am. I've said it before and I'll say it again; I am so very sorry that I ever gave my hard-earned money to this despicable organization that thinks it can bully me or anyone else into submission for our religious beliefs. I answer to God, not the SPLC. And, contrary to what they may think, the SPLC is NOT God. Disclaimer: I am not white.

  5. Its deeper then that , most anti hate groups serve both agendas and stir up hate and target certain events to profit from the chaos of one or both sides. I can't speak on these guys because I haven't seen past the shell. But I do know any group that takes a side publicly accepts the backlash and the enemies of the opposition. So ask yourself , WHY. Are they pushing equality ? or trying to make money while stirring up shit. Who will benefit from this so called equality that you decided there's not enough of. Assholes come in all colors and every walk of life, and believe it or not everybody hates something I dont care who you are if you say you dont hate anyone or anything , you're a damn liar so since we all sin these antihate groups are just idiots that want to throw the first stone and get paid for it hahaha. Assholes come in all colors ,This is the creed I live by .
    There is more money made off the fear of what hate groups or antihate groups can do than what
    is acually being done. In my opinion antihate groups are more problems than the hate groups.
    At least with so called hate groups they're cards are on the table.

  6. When a hate group gets mad that you call them a hate group 😂😂.
    I wonder why you have mentioned all the trump supporters that have committed hate/abuse/murder.

  7. So happy to see Morris Dees and his corrupt ilk finally being EXPOSED!
    TYSM PRAGER U
    GOD BLESS YOU
    GOD BLESS AMERICA

  8. The SPLC has become just another Communist front organization. It's aim, like all true Communist, to undermine and destroy the United States!
    I pray for the day this group is banned and it's leaders JAILED!

  9. They can put me on the list & kiss my ass! Yes I'm a Southern White Conservative Republican with law enforcement & military roots in my family, NRA supporter, etc… ALL THE THINGS THEY DISLIKE…….

  10. Sounds muck like Hope not Hate, a far left violent fascist organisation in the UK. Sadly closely linked with the BBC.

  11. The "Southern Poverty Law Center" is…

    – NOT ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO BEING SOUTHERN

    – NOT ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO POVERTY

    – NOT ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO THE LAW

    – NOT ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO BEING IN THE CENTER (OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM)

  12. This explains Facebook's bigoted and stupid CENSORSHIP …. the SPLC helped develop Facebook's so-called "Community Standards".

  13. Imagine living in a world where almost every inch of the earth was colonized by Europeans via conquest inspired by white cultural and gentic supremacy then saying white supremacists is just a small group of nameless people 🤷🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️ totally wrong!

  14. SPLC, can you please explain what your unapproved, unscreened, and un-elected staff actually do..? What is the purpose and/or function of your self-created, self-appointed, and left-proclaimed authorized organization actually does all day long in 2019..? Nobody knows.. and apparently not even the SPLC itself knows…

  15. These people behind SPLC sound a bunch of 8 year olds screaming and crying in a CoD lobby: they proclaim it’s unfair when they lose or someone disagrees. They can’t handle the truth. Simply put, SPLC is full of little bitches who don’t know any better.

  16. I don't need some organization to tell me what a hate group is, I can determine that my self by witnessing their actions.

  17. If the SPLC were truly defenders of the United States Constitution they would be fighting for “Ali Ayann Hirsi’s” right to tell her story or ”PragerU’s” right to not be censored on “You Tube” however they lost their way many, many years ago. They should rename their organization “The Moral Relativist Law Center”.

  18. Not defending the SPLC but them naming others racist and their followers doing bad things doesn't mean that they are responsible for their followers' actions.

  19. F the racist stupid hateful left. Today, tommorow & forever.

    Signed: a leftist until 2017. I am a human again now.

  20. Communism- Any economic theory or system based on the ownership of all property by the community as a whole. 2. A hypothetical stage of Socialism, as formulated by Marx, Engels, Lenin, and others, to be characterized by a classless and stateless society and the equal distribution of economic goods, and to be achieved by revolutionary and dictatorial, rather than gradualistic, means. b. The form of government in the U. S. S. R., China and other Socialist states, professing to be working toward this stage by means of state planning and control of the economy, a one-party political structure, and an emphasis on the requirements of the state rather than on individual liberties. 3. a. A political movement for establishing a Communist system. b. The doctrines, methods, etc. of the Communist parties. 4. Loosely, communalism. 5. Loosely, any political ideas or activity thought of as being leftist or subversive.

  21. Liberals love slaughtered babies, racism, oppression, corruption, hipocracy, lies, and soooooo much more garbage. Prove me wrong.

  22. THEY ARE A "HATE GROUP" THAT THE US HAS ALLOWED TO BRAND OTHER NON-VIOLENT GROUPS AS A HATE GROUP. WHAT GIVES THEM THE RIGHT, THEY DISGUISE THEMSELVES AS "HATE SPEAK OR DO PEOPLE, WHILE ALL THE WHILE USURPING THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES THE RIGHT TO FREELY SPEAK. AND WHETHER OR NOT
    US CITIZENS KNOW THIS …THE FOLLOW ANYTHING "DONALD TRUMP" SAYS. CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF.

  23. THIS VIDEO HAS IT EXACTLY CORRECT, AND SPEAKS THE TRUTH ABOUT SPLC. JUST CHECK OUT WHO HEADS, OR USED TO HEAD SPLC.

  24. THIS IS WHY NO ONE TRUSTS MAINSTREAM MEDIA, THE WHITE POLICEMEN, THE DOCTORS, US MEDICINE, THE PRESIDENT AND HIS "HENCHMEN", US SCHOOLS, AND THE LIST JUST GOES ON AND ON. SAD DAY INDEED.

  25. They claim they want equal rights but literally beat up white people, Republicans, Jews, Christians, and capitalists. How is that equal rights?

    You can’t have equal rights by beating up whites.

  26. This is propaganda. Alliance Defending Freedom *IS* an anti-gay hate group. It was FOUNDED to oppose gay rights and maintain the criminalization of gay sex. Look at ADF's own public records if you disagree. ADF works in the US to limit and reverse gays' constitutional guarantees of due process and equal protection of the laws and oppose gays' unalienable rights. ADF works internationally to convince nations in Africa and eastern Europe, particularly Russia and former Soviet bloc countries, to criminalize gays' public lives (even posters announcing a Pride festival or rally for civil rights) and allies' support of gay rights. ADF pushes other nations to penalize gay sex (fines, imprisonment, or worse) and to force transgender people to be sterilized before attempting to be recognized by their gender identity.
    And both ADF and the Family Research Council envision the United States free of LGBT people, whether by oppression to force self-removal, imprisonment, or denaturalization.
    They are NOT conservative groups. They are extremists who demand others tolerate their public and vocal stance that gays are intolerable, and that's just not acceptable and must be called out.

  27. Muslims and Pedophiles are where I draw the line. I’ll even let leftists spew their ideas but not Muslims and Pedophiles.

    Well…Muslims are pedophiles.

  28. "We hate fascists"-SPLC
    Me: Well your Marxists so your worse thing that anyone wants. You are also communists. Good job guys, you make the left look bad and you bring up the Communism issue once again.

  29. PragerU isnt aligned with the KKK
    they're aligned with the the AAA
    Adobe After-effects Alliance

  30. basiacally any group of whites is a hate group,I bet they would label the white knighs of dungeons and dragons a hate group.

  31. It’s about time for the victims of the Southern poverty pimping lies center to sue this rabid hatemongering heartless bunch of hatemonsters manufacturing (non-existent) scandal for profit for about, say, $675 million or perhaps even a billion dollars. They have cowed and bullied and hatefully defamed decent patriotic citizens and organizations for far too long—for outrageous profits, many or even most of which profits are being secreted outside the U.S. in overseas banks. Now for what reason are they hiding the unjust profits of their criminal enterprise in banks outside the U.S.? Bullied, threatened, defamed and libeled citizens want to know why. Decent law abiding citizens everywhere want to know why such a Nazi-propaganda style machine even exists or why anyone is listening to it or even foolish enough to quote it. Perhaps it is time to launch a massive investigation into this hatemongering-for-profit organization. It is time to question the tactics of an organization that spews hate against decent citizens and organizations Nazi Goebbels style while ignoring the bullying tactics of their fellow bullies, Black lies matter, Antifa, etc.

  32. Every parent should have their older kids watch all of Prager U videos. All educational and simply put.

  33. Makes me miss when the CIA could operate similarly to the KGB. I seriously doubt anyone would care for very long if the SPLC got disappeared.

  34. I agree but please stop using American as a synonym for democratic. You're not the only ones with democracy with unlimited freedom. (Switzerland, etc.)

  35. SPLC fights for the poor. Prager funded by same people who brought you flammable water. 1% oil frackers

  36. It's sort of funny to me how extreme the reactions are in here and how expressive the feeling of hatred is towards the SPLC by those that post comments. Apparently it's quite noble and in line with American values to express and exchange your ideas, unless you are a member of the SPLC in which case you're viewed by those who espouse right wing values as fascist, extremist, hate-mongers and you should be silenced. How ironic.

  37. SPLC is completely cancerous. The fact that they don't even list feminism as a hate group should tell you a lot about the organization.

  38. Thank you Prager, you are one of the few good sources out there. Most of these supposed Neo-Nazis are actually another (((Tribe))) dressed up in KKK sheets and originally created this group to smear white people as being racist.

  39. How did I know this video wasn't going to be about the ADL? Because if it were, you'd be shouted down and called anti-Semite racists. It seems to exist mostly to protect Israel form criticism. The ADL isn't eliminating hate, it's fueling it.

  40. The Left projects its ideologies sins upon others.
    They are the racists, they are the oppressors, they are the hateful, they are the illogical and ill-informed.

  41. Now it makes sense why feminists dont care about muslim women. Because if u support womens rights for muslim women u are called an anti muslim extremist

  42. In Britain we have 'HOPE NOT HATE' (a somewhat ironic name)…who are essentially the same as the SPLC….this is a disease across the west being fuelled by the media and the elites…..be worried people if you value FREEDOM………….
