Profiting off of "hate" - the SPLC

Profiting off of "hate" - the SPLC

Apple just gave these people $1 million. Of shareholder money.

What I'd like to know is - how the hell is Antifa not on the "hate" list of this organization? How many cops do you have to beat up before you are labeled a "hate" group?
If you see someone using the term "dimples", you are dealing with a bonehead.

They even have an active case against Trump. Seems like a right-hate group, although, they do have some cases that support the poor. They don’t list any left oriented hate groups so certainly they have bias.

3. The SPLC is not interested in classifying a leftist organization as a hate group. In 2011, National Review's Charles Cooke pressed the SPLC as to why they weren't tracking the Occupy Wall Street movement after a group affiliated with the movement plotted to blow up a bridge in Cleveland, Ohio. After a back-and-forth with a male representative from the SPLC, Cooke got the representative to admit: "We’re not really set up to cover the extreme Left."

The representative even tried to argue that Occupy Wall Street wasn't a political movement and answered "Yes I suppose so" when Cooke asked him if "the SPLC covers a group if there is even a minute 'right-wing' component."

Cooke felt that "there was a little bit of a syllogism going on" in the SPLC, as he felt that in their mind "'Left' equals 'good,' and 'Right' equals 'bad,' and therefore anything 'Left' couldn’t be 'bad' unless it were infiltrated by the 'Right.'
