All you need to know about the far left bent of the Arizona Republic newspaper is contained in the brief and erroneous description of the Southern Poverty Law Center in an article about Democrat U. S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, (CD-7) who claims his home was targeted by Patriot Movement Arizona.
Members of the group posted images of Gallego’s digs on Twitter (since removed), along with messages calling out his raw hypocrisy for opposing a border wall while living in a walled and gated community himself.
The group was correct in describing Gallego’s nearly 4,000 sq. ft. residence, with spectacular views of South Mountain, as being in a gated community.
The spectacular deception in the newspaper report described the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), as “a group that monitors extremist and hate groups,” writing the posts targeting Gallego appeared to be part of coordinated protests at the homes and residences of other Democrat politicians.
Where was the outrage when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife were met by screeching mobs outside their home? White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders and her family were forced out of a restaurant as were Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and her husband and others, by those who were encouraged to use violent tactics by Democrat U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters.
In truth, the Southern Poverty Law Center is, itself. a notorious hate group — and a well funded one, at that.
Interestingly, the SPLC has invested nearly 20 percent, or $69 million, of its $320 million endowment in offshore equity funds and other investments, according to its 2016 annual report. Christian conservative Family Research Council is prominently displayed on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hate Map,” but not the violent left-wing extremist group Antifa.
This informative report by Truth Revolt provides an excellent exposé of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Using the fraudulent motto, “Fighting Hate, Teaching Tolerance, Seeking Justice,” SPLC is an incredibly well-funded group engaged in deceptive practices. On its website‘s “Hate Map” the Trump administration is singled out as fomenting hatred. An ongoing report titled, “Hate in the White House,” will give you an idea of the anti-Trump, hateful spew emanating from SPLC.
If it weren’t on life support and relying on ASU Cronkite School student interns to report, even the leftist Arizona Republic might be ashamed to mischaracterize the real hate mongers as those benignly seeking honesty. Nothing could be further from the truth.
