The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) claims to condemn the violent acts of Antifa. They specifically mention that on their website’s frequently asked questions.
But in the same breath, the SPLC refuses to label them as a hate group because, as they claim, they “do not promote hatred based on race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.”
I wonder what the SPLC thinks about hurling racial slurs at black cops, beating down minorities in the street, and throwing up Sieg Heil salutes at protests? Considering those are all things Antifa has done, one would think it would concern them.
But waiting for the SPLC to condemn any of those actions is a fools errand considering that the SPLC openly allies with at least one Antifa-affiliated group regularly.
The group, One People’s Project, is run by a man named Daryle Lamont Jenkins. Lamont Jenkins’ hobbies include doxxing, attending protests with violent antifa leaders, and getting kicked out of food courts after playing porn on his cell phone. According to an SPLC representative, Lamont Jenkins has attended conferences with the SPLC, and is considered an ally to the organization.
While they may attempt to sugarcoat his group, simply referring to it as “anti-racist,” in reality it regularly fuels Antifa violence. Along with fueling their violence, they fully embrace the Antifa label, even selling merchandise with the violent group’s name on it.
The group has also been present at countless Antifa protests, many of which have gotten extremely violent due to the actions of the left.
Lamont Jenkins, through his website, Idavox, also regularly cheers the deaths of his enemies. The latest person to be featured in one of his celebratory obituaries is Leo Stratton, a conservative journalist who recently died in a truck crash.
Stratton was a run-of-the-mill Trump supporter who didn’t support any form of racism. But because he was a supporter of Donald Trump, his death is a celebratory moment for heartless left-wing radicals. Thankfully the conservative community is standing with his family at this tough time, even setting up a GoFundMe to raise money for them.
When Big League Politics spoke to a representative with the SPLC about the celebratory obituary they declined to comment, citing lack of information. But the representative did note that the SPLC is aware of Lamont Jenkins’ affiliation with Antifa, and cited that as a major reason for them not working directly with him.
But while they may not work directly with him on research, they do reference his work quite often.
It is clear that the SPLC’s ties to Antifa go deeper than they are letting on. They regularly blast those they consider extremists on the right, so it may be time for them to do the same to those on the left.
President Trump Shuts Down Minnesota Governor’s Demand for $500 Million in Riot Repair Funds
He wanted the taxpayer to pay for the riots.
President Donald Trump formally declined a request from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to declare Minneapolis a federal disaster zone in the wake of the George Floyd race riots on Saturday, preventing the city’s Democratic governor and mayor from bilking the taxpayer for bailout funds to repair the damage they tacitly allowed through refusal to halt the riots.
Walz’s office confirmed that the White House had refused his request for an emergency declaration on Saturday in a press release, explaining that the governor had hoped the federal government would clean up the mess.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
The rioting in Minneapolis may have been among the most destructive ever to occur in the United States, devastating the community, causing what some estimate to be $500 million in damages to property, and damaging more than 500 buildings. Many Americans probably wouldn’t know it, as the corporate media has largely focused on promoting the activities of the rioters, falsely describing them as peaceful protestors, allowing the model of community destruction to be exported to other American communities.
Both Governor Walz and neoliberal Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had waited fecklessly to deploy the Minnesota National Guard to contain the dangerous situation, hoping to appease the raging mob as the rioters torched a Minneapolis police precinct and destroyed countless small businesses in the city’s downtown area.
At the very least, the state’s Democratic officials won’t be rewarded with a hefty federal bailout as a result of their own irresponsibility and political fecklessness in refusing to crack down on criminal rioters. Sadly, it’ll be members of the Minneapolis community who pay for the cowardice of their local officials, and the once-serene upper-class community may never recover, instead morphing into a dilapidated shell of its former self.
