Gavin McInnes Fills War Chest for Legal Battle Against SPLC

The conservative icon has raised a vast sum of money to take on the leftist organization.

A popular right wing figure who is taking the Southern Poverty Law Center to court for defamation has raised nearly $200,000 for his lawsuit.

Gavin McInnes’ lawsuit, which he levied against the SPLC for labeling the Proud Boys a “hate group,” has raised $184,000 so far.

The Proud Boys, founded by McInnes, is a fraternal organization that supports President Donald J. Trump.

Though most Proud Boys are mainstream conservatives, the SPLC has labeled them a “hate group,” and they have been slandered as such by the mainstream press, which takes its cues from the Alabama-headquartered legal nonprofit.

The SPLC, founded decades ago to fight the KKK, has made a tremendous amount of money fighting “hate groups,” which appears to be loosely defined as any group that supports conservatism. This fundraising model has drawn the ire of some who recognize that the SPLC fill its coffers by scaremongering with labels of “hate.” The organizations reportedly has $500 million in assets.

McInnes’ legal battle is an important one for conservatives, many of whom have had their livelihoods – and even in some cases, their physical safety – threatened by the SPLC.

Floyd Lee Corkin II pleaded guilty on terrorism charges for attempting to massacre employees of the Family Research Counsel in Washington, D.C. in 2013.

The FRC is a pro-traditional marriage group. Corkin cited the SPLC’s website as the means by which he chose his target. Fortunately, a security guard stopped Corkin from executing his plan.

“The day after Floyd Corkins came into the FRC headquarter and opened fire wounding one of our team members, I stated that while Corkins was responsible for the shooting, he had been given a license to perpetrate this act of violence by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center which has systematically and recklessly labeled every organization with which they disagree as a ‘hate group,'” FRC President Tony Perkins said.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
