Antifa isn’t a ‘hate group,’ Southern Poverty Law Center claims

December 5, 2017

Hate_map_s878x746You can find conservative policy centers like the Family Research Council on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate map,” but not the violent left-wing extremist group antifa.

Why not? Antifa’s radical activists are known for beating up those they view as “fascists,” but according to SPLC president Richard Cohen, antifa doesn’t actually espouse hate.

“If you are familiar with our work, we write about antifa often,” Mr. Cohen said in his Thursday testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee. “We condemn their tactics — I’ve said so publicly and we do so always — but antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.”

Mr. Cohen came to testify on domestic terrorism but wound up tangling with House Republicans over the SLPC’s extensive offshore financial holdings, its relationship with Google in creating a “hate news index,” and the politics behind its “hate map.”

    ANTIFA is most certainly a hate group, and so is the so called Southern Poverty Law Center. Both should be kicked out of the country.

    But the Southern Poverty Law Center IS. Every statement I have ever read or heard from these Communists is anti-American, anti-capitalism, anti-Christian.

      Very rich communists. For a group that is anti-capitalist they sure have a lot of money invested in the capitalist system. Since it’s role is in identifying groups that hate citizens of our country I’m not sure you can call them anti-American. I can’t see where they are either anti or pro Christian so I fear you might have not been listening to the right people. You could question why so much money, why the of shore accounts or even how they decide which groups are hate groups but I fear you can’t just lump everyone you disagree with is communist.
