Southern Poverty Law Center Is a Hate Group

Written by Josh Goldstein

Like many leftist organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, started out with good intentions. It was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joseph Levin and is headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama.  The Southern Poverty Law Center rightly condemned, as did conservatives such as the great William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan, the American Nazi Party and the Democrat-affiliated Ku Klux Klan.

A favorite SPLC tactic was suing Klan affiliated organizations for their crimes and then distributing the money to the victims.  … Continue Reading

Written by Peter LaBarbera

A coalition of 47 conservatives has written a letter appealing to the media to stop citing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as an authority on “hate,” calling it “an attack dog of the political left” that slanders traditional conservatives as “extremists.”

In the wake of the race protests and riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, CNN and other media and blogs have cited the SPLC’s “hate map” as a guide to locate “hate groups”and “extremists” across the United States.… Continue Reading

Questioning Fiorina’s Right-Wing Credentials

Written by Chad Groening

Fiorina is currently in third place in a compilation of polls at RealClearPolitics, trailing Donald Trump and Ben Carson respectively.

Her bump in poll numbers came after the former Hewlett-Packard CEO delivered a strong performance in the September GOP debate, when she challenged Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to watch the undercover Planned Parenthood videos.

Cathie Adams of Texas Eagle Forum claims that Fiorina failed to unseat U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer because Republican voters couldn’t find a “stark contrast” between the Republican challenger and the Democrat incumbent.… Continue Reading

Written by Ray Nothstine

In a swing through Tupelo, Mississippi, last week, Texas Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz dropped by the American Family Association radio station for an interview and called on people of faith to “stand up and vote our biblical values.

“In this last election 54 million Evangelicals stayed home,” asserted Cruz on Tuesday. “If we can simply bring Christians to the polls, is it any wonder that we have the government we have, we have the leaders we have, if believers stay home and leave electing our leaders to unbelievers?… Continue Reading

An Ohio pro-family activist has written off Dr. Ben Carson as someone he can support for president because the retired neurosurgeon has endorsed Ohio Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman’s re-election.

Written by Chad Groening

In March 2013, U.S. Senator Rob Portman, who was once staunchly pro-family, revealed that his own son is a homosexual and announced his support for “same-sex marriage.” That brought a strong reaction from conservatives in Ohio, including Phil Burress, who is chairman of the Citizens for Community Values Action PAC and has vowed to work hard for a Portman GOP primary defeat next year.… Continue Reading

Written by Chad Groening

Will conservative voters be looking for someone with previous political experience to head the GOP presidential ticket in 2016 – or will they be looking for a fresh face?

In a recent compilation of polls by RealClearPolitics, Jeb Bush – the former Florida governor – continues to be the front runner, with almost 16 and half percent of Republican respondents. But several polls, including one in New Hampshire and one in Iowa, had Bush trailing Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who has substantial momentum coming out his re-election in November.… Continue Reading

3-legged-stool

Written by Chad Groening

Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, says those “three legs” are social issues, national defense, and the economy.

Several potential Republican candidates are concentrating their efforts on Christian conservatives.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal hosted a prayer rally in his home state, sponsored by the American Family Association, in which he called for a national spiritual revival.

Dr. Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, spoke this past weekend at a Houston megachurch conference billed as an effort to “restore the soul of America.”
