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.

HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
