The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was founded to combat many racist and bigoted organizations in the United States, including the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups. The SPLC played a critical role in winning key legal victories against these groups, and protecting the rights and well-being of minorities across America.
But since these victories and the near-extinction of widespread, organized hate groups in America, the SPLC has lost its way and become increasingly political. The modern SPLC takes in millions of dollars each year, which it uses to falsely label many conservative and mainstream organizations – such as the Family Research Council, a Christian organization – as “hate groups” alongside actual hate groups, in order to advance an increasingly radical agenda of so-called social justice.
