“It is a group of passionate women who in no way resemble extremists or a hate group. The SPLC are beclowning themselves and exposing nothing but their own bias”
The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies almost anything that doesn’t align with the left as hate groups. It’s such an obvious pattern.
The Jewish News Syndicate reports:
Mothers, Jewish leaders criticize Southern Poverty Law Center listing ‘Moms for Liberty’ a hate group
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a Montgomery, Ala.-based nonprofit that according to its website was founded in 1971 “to ensure that the promise of the civil rights movement became a reality for all.”
Before reaching that first paragraph on the group’s site, however, comes the SPLC’s self-identification as “a catalyst for racial justice in the South and beyond, working in partnership with communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance the human rights of all people.”
SPLC is often quoted in news articles as an authority on whether an entity is a hate group, and as critics, including 100 Orthodox rabbis at one point, have noted, the law center often deems mainstream groups with traditional religious values as hateful on the basis of those values.
In its report “Year in Hate and Extremism,” which SPLC released earlier this month, the group listed the nonprofit Moms for Liberty, and other parental-rights organizations, alongside the KKK and neo-Nazi groups.
“Moms for Liberty is a far-right organization that engages in anti-student inclusion activities and self-identifies as part of the modern parental rights movement,” per the SPLC.
Bethany Mandel, a mother, conservative columnist and co-author with Karol Markowicz of the recently published Stolen Youth: How Radicals Are Erasing Innocence and Indoctrinating a Generation, has worked with Moms for Liberty; delivered speeches to its chapters; and befriended many of its members. She plans to go to the group’s summit in Philadelphia, which is taking place from June 29 to July 2.
“It is a group of passionate women who in no way resemble extremists or a hate group. The SPLC are beclowning themselves and exposing nothing but their own bias,” Mandel told JNS.
“It’s unfortunate that the SPLC has made clear that Jewish families don’t have a reliable source for this kind of content,” she added. “They just have another left-wing group, which falsely uses antisemitism as a cudgel against its political enemies.”
