A conservative fraternal organization is suing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) after the Alabama non-profit labeled it “hate group.”
“We are taking legal action against the SPLC and we are going to win,” Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio said.
“The SPLC is the glue holding together all the media lies used against us and many others,” Tarrio continued. “Dishonest reporters use SPLC ‘designations’ and lists like they hold some official weight. But the SPLC isn’t some kind of hate barometer. They are not a group of scientists measuring extremism. The SPLC is a far-left advocacy group that advances its own agenda in pursuit of donor money.”
The Proud Boys are crowdfunding the lawsuit.
“Donate today to help fight the fake news frenzy to defame and destroy the Proud Boys,” the group’s legal defense website says. “Your donation today will help preserve the honor and legacy of one of America’s finest organizations.”
Tarrio and the Proud Boys will announce the legal action near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., where the viral video of the Covington Catholic High School boys was filmed. The boys were approached by a Native American man beating a drum in their faces, and were subsequently vilified by mainstream press, which chose only to play a short clip of the altercation.
We chose this location to make an announcement today for a reason. Right here is where the viral video of the Covington Catholic School kids was filmed. That video perfectly illustrates the situation conservatives find themselves in today.
For the first week after the video came out, the mainstream media gleefully played a doctored version of the footage. They said again and again it proved the nasty and racist nature of Trump supporters. But astute viewers could tell something was off.
The Covington video turned out the great eye-opener of the year. We all know now that it was not a case of the evil white male oppressing everyone in earshot, but the opposite. It was the leftist mob run amok. And when the filter of the media was removed, everyone saw the rip off they’d been sold.
He also said that the group is considering legal action against other organizations, including Facebook, The Daily Beast, BBC, Chase Bank, and far-left Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King. Chase Bank abruptly closed Tarrio’s account in February, and a later Project Veritas exposé found that the bank has standards in place to close accounts based on political leanings.
Tarrio, who is Afro-Cuban, mocked those who he says have slandered the group.
“Our enemies, who are mostly privileged and white, had to invent a new term to describe us: ‘Multi-racial white supremacists,'” he said.
Gavin McInnes, founder of the Proud Boys, is currently embroiled in a suit against the SPLC on similar legal grounds.
The legal non-profit is reeling after it was rocked by internal strife in March. Its founder, Morris Dees, was drummed out of the organization following complaints that women and minorities were not well represented among high-ranking staff. Soon after Dees’ departure, SPLC president Richard Cohen resigned.

‘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.
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.
This is the moment

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.
