First reported by PJ Media, several organizations are considering legal action against a non-profit that has labeled them “hate groups.”
Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel (LC), a Christian legal non-profit told Big League Politics that the threat of physical harm attached to an SPLC “hate group” listing is tangible. Staver’s organization could very well end up leading the charge against the SPLC.
“We had to install extra security cameras and codes all over the building,” Staver said. “We’ve had deaths threats, and suspicious things mailed to us. “SPLC puts people’s lives in danger. We’ve had our entire staff go through active shooter training.”
LC is an international non-profit public policy and litigation organization focused on religious freedom, sanctity of life, and sanctity of marriage.
Staver also said that the organization has been damaged in other ways. Prudential Life Insurance, for example, who used to partner with LC, ended their partnership due to the “hate group” listing. So did Amazon Smile, a charitable service provided by the online retail giant.
“You can go on and on with different situations like that,” Staver said.
The Quilliam Foundation, run by Maajid Nawaz, won a settlement against the SPLC on Monday after he sued them for labeling his organization as “extremist.” Nawaz is a former British politician whose organization fights radical Islam and educates about misinterpretations of the Koran that lead to jihadism. Quilliam was included in the SPLC’s “A Journalist’s Manual: Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.”
“We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to Mr. Nawaz, Quilliam, and our readers for the error, and we wish Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam all the best,” said SPLC President Richard Cohen in a statement. “We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to Mr. Nawaz, Quilliam, and our readers for the error, and we wish Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam all the best.”
Staver said that many organizations are considering legal action as Quilliam did.
“There are 60 plus organizations that are on the list,” he said. “We have been in communication with them, and in fact with the PJ Media article, several organizations have communicated with me today because they’re in the same situation.”
Staver said he thinks the chances of a lawsuit are high, and that there was a strong desire for legal action among many of the other groups even before the Quilliam settlement.
Notoriously, the SPLC labels most groups that do not adhere to its radical leftist agenda as “hateful,” and is often cited by politicians and on mainstream news programs. The whole organization adds up to a legitimate-sounding propaganda machine.
“Anyone who relies on SPLC is complicit with the violence that false characterizations cause,” Staver finished. We need to have civil dialogue. We can disagree, but how many more people have to have their lives put in jeopardy?”
As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million
Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.
Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.
Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.
Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”
“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.
“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.
Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.
Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.
Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.
Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.
However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.
Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.
“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.
Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
