Twitter Ends “Safety Partner” Relationship with SPLC After Sexual Harassment, Racism Scandals

The progressive faux-hate legal group no longer has an in with Twitter.

Twitter has ended its relationship with the scandal-ridden Southern Poverty Law Center, according to reports that emerged Monday.

The platform had previously featured the legal organization as a member of its Trust and Safety Council, assisting to help combat “hateful conduct and harassment.” While it’s almost certain that the organization’s role with Twitter consisted of demanding conservative speech be censored and deleted, it appears the SPLC no longer has an in with the powerful social media platform.

The SPLC has increasingly come under fire, not only from the conservative demographic which it’s gained notoriety for baselessly defaming for years, but from moderates and progressives concerned with a pattern of unscrupulous behavior within the Alabama-based organization. The organization’s President and founder both resigned from their roles, with the latter having been accused of serially sexually harassing female staffers.

Other reports painted a picture of an organization that defrauded donors, stashed tens of millions of dollars in overseas tax havens, and hosted a toxic work culture in which minority employees were routinely underpaid.

Although the SPLC no longer has a means to agitate for liberal censorship on Twitter, the group has always had a closer relationship with Facebook, that appears to be intact in spite of the organization’s scandals. A Facebook spokesperson had told The Daily Caller that the SPLC was one of the external organizations the social media behemoth worked with “to inform our hate speech policies.” If the relationship still exists, it could be reasonably said that the biggest social media platform’s hate speech policies are in fact dictated by a progressive hate group.

Google has also utilized the group’s services to censor and purge right-of-center content from YouTube. There’s been no word as to whether or not it intends to follow the lead of Twitter in dumping the political hate group.

FBI Arrests Hacker Connected to Katie Hill’s Campaign for Taking Down Primary Opponents’ Websites

This is real election interference.

Published

on

The FBI has arrested a California man connected to former Congresswoman Katie Hill for taking down the websites of two of her campaign opponents in 2018.

Arthur Dam was arrested Friday on charges of hacking into the websites of two Democrats who opposed Hill in the 2018 Democratic Primary for California’s 25th District. According to a criminal complaint regarding the arrest, Dam orchestrated a cyber attack on websites of two of Hill’s primary opponents, Jess Phoenix and Bryan Caforio. Both of their websites were disabled during a crucial moment of the primary, which Hill went on to win.

It was suspected during the primary that Hill was connected to the campaign website hacks, considering her own website was still intact. Dam’s connections to the former member of Congress- who was forced to resign from office in 2019 in light of a sex scandal surrounding her intimate affairs with a congressional staffer- appear to make that a likely possibility.

Dam is married to Hill’s former campaign fundraiser and district director in Congress, Kelsey O’Hara. In campaign finance records, Hill lists an in-kind campaign contribution for “graphic design and website security consultation.”

Some coincidences are merely just that. But it’s extremely hard to ignore Kate Hill’s “website security consultant” getting arrested for hacking into the campaign websites of her congressional primary opponents.

Hill has reinvented herself after her resignation from Congress as a result of the sex scandal, seemingly viewing herself as a victim.

Sexual involvement with subordinate employees is arguably a severe lapse of ethical judgement in any workplace. Perhaps one could forgive such poor decision-making, even if it’s made by a Member of Congress obligated to a higher standard.

But the lasting hacking arrest of Hill’s campaign security consultant make it likely that the former Democrat Congresswoman has more to answer for her own personal lapses in judgement.
