SPLC Is Fake News, and the Media Should Treat It as Such

The Southern Poverty Law Center is in hot water. Begun several decades ago with the aim of fighting the influence of the Ku Klux Klan and other such groups, the SPLC has in more recent years begun to drift away from its original mission, conflating opposition to leftist causes such as the LGBT movement with white supremacy and racism. However, while the mainstream media has continued to cite them as an objective authority, there are signs the SPLC may finally have taken things too far. Yesterday, a Florida evangelical organization, D. James Kennedy Ministries, announced they would be suing the

What Do White Supremacists and Icelandic Abortionists Have in Common?

Whether it was Icelanders boasting about killing their unborn children with Down syndrome or white supremacists and counter protestors clashing in Charlottesville, last week’s news was filled with stories that show prejudice and violence come in many different forms. Although these events took place thousands of miles and an ocean apart, they have one thing in common — they involve one group of people pronouncing their superiority over another which they consider to be inferior based on some arbitrary determination. Such prejudice begins with hateful rhetoric and usually ends with the taking of innocent life. In Iceland, the victims have

NARAL Tries to Connect Pro-Lifers to White Supremacists in Outrageous Tweets

Yesterday, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) pinned this tweet to the head of their Twitter feed: THREAD: White supremacists at #Charlottesville have close ties not just to Trump, but GOP & anti-choice groups. — NARAL (@NARAL) August 16, 2017 As implied, this was the start of a series of blistering tweets defaming and attacking the pro-life movement in America, equating those who oppose abortion with neo-Nazis. In bolstering its argument, NARAL went on to point out that one group which attended the rally in Charlottesville has also taken part in pro-life events: Heimbach’s “Traditionalist Worker Party” mobilized members to

Charlottesville Shows the Dangers of Moral Relativism

Last week, the country watched as radical white supremacists clashed with radical ‘ANTIFA’ groups at a protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. The political and media response provides a perfect example of the dangers of moral relativism and how it has infected political discourse. For example, when former Attorney General Eric Holder tweeted that President Trump should call out the ‘domestic terrorism’ at the rally, including a driver who purposefully drove his car into protesters, conservative Twitter criticized Holder for not labeling the 2009 Fort Hood shooting ‘terrorism.’ As a reminder, the Obama administration initially labeled it workplace violence. Similarly, liberal Twitter

Want to Demolish Racist Monuments? Start with Planned Parenthood…

Racism and racists have been the hue and cry all over the internet since “the Charlottesville Incident.” Words designed to inflame and incite are being lobbed, lines are being drawn, and sides taken. Should confederate monuments be allowed to stand, or should they be torn down? Those who say they should stand are deemed racist — and, if Black, sell outs. Families are being torn apart and the racial gap widened as acts and threats of violence rule. Racism, a term understood prior to 1964 and the passage of the Civil Rights Act to mean discrimination and prejudice against a
