The SPLC is a hard-core liberal organization which frequently attacks God-fearing, patriotic organizations such as LIFA and many others, and LIFA wears the pathetic SPLC attack as a badge of honor!
The SPLC is one of the most hypocritically-named organizations in the whole world.
While SPLC includes the word “Poverty” in their title, they conveniently forget to mention that they hauled in more than $54 million in total revenue in their fiscal year ending in October of 2014, and they also claim net assets of more than $314 million! And they have the audacity to label themselves with the word “Poverty” in their name! That’s preposterous! The SPLC is more like the 1% that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders like to attack! What hypocrites!
The Washington Times has called the SPLC “a money-making scheme – some have called it a ‘scam’ – of an Alabama lawyer who set out years ago to get rich on the backs of the poor and the duped.”
The Washington Times further reported that “[the] director of the Atlanta-based Southern Center for Human Rights, which defends poor defendants in death penalty cases, once told [SPLC Co-Founder Morris Dees] he was ‘a fraud and a con man’ because of ‘your failure to respond to the most desperate needs of the poor and powerless despite your millions upon millions, your fundraising techniques, and the fact that you spend so much, accomplish so little, and promote yourself so shamelessly.”
The Washington Times concluded about the SPLC, “’Poverty’ quickly became enormously profitable.”
Breitbart also has exposed the SPLC, stating that “besides issuing slanderous attacks on political opponents, fundraising seems to be SPLC’s primary objective.”
Breitbart added about how the SPLC had “to shake down terrified donors for more funds” and how “[the] next time you read something, anything from the SPLC, understand what they are really about: fomenting hate and making money. Consider the source.”
Even many liberals can’t stand the SPLC.
Prominent anti-death penalty lawyer Millard Farmer called SPLC Co-Founder Morris Dees “the Jim and Tammy Faye Baker of the civil rights movement, though I don’t mean to malign Jim and Tammy Faye.”
Journalist Alexander Cockburn of The Nation magazine has commented, “Ever since 1971, U.S. Postal Service mailbags have bulged with his fundraising letters, scaring dollars out of the pockets of trembling liberals aghast at his lurid depictions of hate-sodden America, in dire need of legal confrontation by the SPLC.”
The Fairfax Journal, in commenting about contributions to the SPLC, opined, “give your hard-earned dollars to a real charity, not a bunch of slick, parasitic hucksters who live high on the hog by raising money on behalf of needy people who never see a dime of it.”
LIFA wears this scurrilous attack by the SPLC as a badge of honor!
It means that LIFA is doing exactly the right thing!
