Hate is a Racket: SPLC Caught Funneling Millions Overseas

09/03/201739 Comments

You might not know them by name, but assuming you have ever seen a talking head on MSCNNBCFOXMSMBS fear-mongering about the ever-present danger of "hate" groups that (GASP!) don't worship the government as the holiest institution on the planet, then you know their work.

I'm referring to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a "nonprofit legal advocacy organization" that is "dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society," according to their self-congratulatory PR material. Founded in 1971 by a pair of civil rights lawyers, the SPLC prides itself on its "Hatewatch" and "Hate Map" projects, monitoring the rise of hate groups as they spread hate and hate across America.

Did I mention hate? Because that's what the SPLC specializes in. Hate, I mean. Or monitoring hate. It's hard to tell the difference sometimes.

Anyway, if you're a dedicated listener to The Corbett Report, you'll remember I did a podcast seven years ago exploding the myth of the SPLC as a crusading bunch of civil rights defenders volunteering their services across the South in their thankless pursuit of justice for the poor and downtrodden. In that episode I talked about Mark Potok (the "editor-in-chief of the SPLC’s award-winning, quarterly journal, the Intelligence Report and its investigative reports"), his relentless smearing of anyone and everyone who dares criticize the government (or, more specifically, the Democratic party), and his hatred of those vile conspiracy theorists who actively try to educate (GASP!) the people about the government's misdeeds. I discussed the fact that the SPLC provides instructors and "training materials" to the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (presumably so they can better identify and strip the rights from aforementioned conspiracy theorists). And I even discussed the SPLC's role in planting federal informants in "Elohim City," the militia enclave that housed the government spook at the center of the OKC conspiracy.

But if you have listened to that episode (or if you do so now), you'll find that the single most intriguing fact about the SPLC is their annual revenue and net asset holdings. Citing the most recent data available at that time (2010), I noted that the Center's 2007 revenue was $44.7 million (on $20.8 million in program expenses) and their 2008 net assets totaled an unimaginable $170 million.

Yes, you read that correctly: $170 million. Not bad for a "nonprofit" legal advocacy group, hey?

But if you think that's outrageous, just wait till you hear what that number is now. And wait till you hear what they're doing with it.

    I confess.

    I love to hate the SPLC.

    They have nothing to do with Southern, Poverty or Law.

    But they do seem to be in the Center of everything corrupt going on in the world.

    don’t worship the government as the holiest institution on the planet then you know they’re work.

    I usually wouldn’t bother, but in these articles small youtube comments section speak type of errors like these really stand out.

      Am I coming of as a jackass with these? I sure hope not.

      • wingsuitfreak says:

        What’s really funny is that the commentators who make these errors are usually the grammar nazis in the threads. But, given the state of public indoctrination today, I almost don’t see them anymore. Not that I put that much effort in my own grammar in comment sections.

        • mkey says:

          I try to write correctly and efficiently for everyone’s sake, but James’ articles have a literary face value, completely unrelated to the topic at hand. He strikes me as a person who puts stock on getting things done right, dotting the Is if you will.

          • wingsuitfreak says:

            That is true. I can’t see him just jotting things down all willy-nilly like I do. For me, writing isn’t a profession, it’s part of how I formulate an opinion. Also, in comment sections, I’m usually diving into a gaggle of stupid.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Comments on YouTube and articles
      You hit on something.
      The grammar, spelling, insults, wild conspiracy ideas, etc. are sometimes in the twilight zone when it comes to the comment sections.

      Sometimes I attribute it to Artificial Intelligence or software programs, sometimes to a “typo”, sometimes to Trolls and Sockpuppets, and sometimes to our education system.

      A recent news piece about Artificial Intelligence writing reviews on restaurants…

      “scpat” also mentioned the comment sections…

      This fellow talks about the comments he received from his “$5,000 Give-away” video.

      • mkey says:

        I don’t think those comments on the give away video were a product of an AI. That’s just plain old human stupidity at work.

        I did personally encounter some youtube commenters that did appear to be machine bots. They usually just dish out a load of insults to try and get you going without relating much to anything of what you wrote.

    Have you lately found your downers are having less of an effect? Give this a try.

    No Other Way to Say It, the Zombie Apocalypse Is Here

    It’s a rerun of sort, but worth watching for the extra mellow. For extra points, try to attain comfort from realizing that you probably wouldn’t given a damn had that dumbass selfied his butt over the edge. Further to the point, the grand canyon could maybe be used as a test to split people into two categories: those who can survive the visit and those that are so far gone that they can’t.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      I have that on my download list. Which I was going to do today, but got side-tracked. As usual. But it’s now on tomorrow’s list! I like their channel. Another one that gets a dollar a month from me. I try and spread the dollars, since I’ve been told that love isn’t an option because I’m such a heartless fellow!

      • mkey says:

        Melissa likes to ramble a tad, but she delivers information on an emotional level. The movie she references in that video didn’t do well because it’s a steamy pile of mess, but it does score some interesting points.

        • wingsuitfreak says:

          I like it when she rambles. I wonder if that is because I tend to do that myself? Naw!!! By the way, on the eyeballs; did you know an eagle can read a paper from the top of the empire state building? I didn’t even know they could read, but they wouldn’t print it if it wasn’t true! And now you know why my stand-up career only put eggs and tomatoes on the table…..

      • mkey says:

        Better heartless than broke.

          Hola aloha amigos mcei and Jim the Zombie …. 🙂 ,

          I always enjoy how señorita Melton Dykes presents the truth. Her last vid is also pure Truth Stream Media and not Main Stream Media aka mierda del torro invented & lied by MSCNNBCFOXMSMBS.

          Gas “Shortage” Caused by Manufactured Fear, NOT Reality

          And she is not fear-mongering when she tells the truth otherwise she would be a state troll and worked for MSCNNBCFOXMSMBS and/or a political party.

          Last somebody said to me that I was a pessimist, because I talked about inside jobs like 911 and said that politicians are psychopaths and their voting cattle are sheeple and some even are psychopaths. I replied to that person with a big smile on my face, that I didn’t created those manipulated events but their leaders who they elected and gave permission to rule over them… You had to see the expression on that persons face…. very pessimistic hi hi hi.

          Saludos y viva la libertad para todos,

    After the brain dead, a brain teaser. Some people have a knack for keeping things simple. I can only imagine wonders this level of education can do for young minds.

      who says each step, however small, is not impressive?

      even very nanoscopic things are wondrous…

      simply because they are.

      • mkey says:

        Each miniscule step in the correct, forward direction, yes. Otherwise, not so much.

        Physics classes in my day and age consisted in a) here is your text book b) here’s your workbook c) get started. We were firstly introduced into some experimentation only in college and that lasted for a semester. Granted, I didn’t study physics, but it’s omnipresent and I find it perfect for tickling the imagination.

        • nosoapradio says:

          That there is any step at all…whatever direction it takes…

          That mount probability exists and has any candidates at all…

          blows my mind…

          then again… how a television can possibly function leaves me floored…

          that you can dial a number on a phone, of all the millions, billions of numbers that exist and somehow reach one particular person in the world…

          that I can correct my post and that you’ll see it corrected… HOW???
          almost makes me tremble…

    Wasn’t it Morris Dees who, under false pretenses, came to the defense of Randy Weaver of Ruby Ridge and then betrayed him? Or am I not remembering the story accurately?

  6. bladtheimpailer says:

    So why single out the SPLC as if were the only co-opted or created NGO that does the work of the “one world order” plutocracy? Is there some sort of personal bias involved here? It is hard to even think of a single ‘do good’ NGO that is not doing the bidding of these plutocrats while at the same time fattening the bank accounts of their venal leadership. From the Sierra Club to the Tea Party and BLM, and on to the well known like USAID and NED, to the unknown covert creations for the transfer of funds, all are very illegitimate if their stories were to be told. If we were able to open the books of all the corporate Trusts and Foundations what might we find? That AntiFA and the White Nationalists are funded by the Soros’ Open Society Foundation for AntiFA while a plutocratic friend of Soros funds the white nationalists?

    When D. Rockefeller coined the phrase, “Own nothing, control everything” he was speaking of being the directing beneficiary of Trusts and Foundations, and in his and his ilks case of immense sums stored in such legal entities for the advancement of their personal and collective interests.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      While it is true they are not the only type of such group, they are a very important group. They have been behind so many events, so many smears, that they have earned the attention they’ve gathered. I place them right alongside the ADL for creating the hate they publicly decry.

    • mkey says:

      So what’s your logic there, don’t expose one of the groups if you don’t plan to expose all of them?

      Further, where is it implied in the article this is the one and only reprehensible NGO? There is a selection of related articles on this website which suggest the average subscriber/site visitor isn’t in any particular danger to get under such erroneous assumptions.

    The World Is Awakening From The Lies

    This video is rather funny at its core. A black national socialist explaining his political views, personal stances on history, political correctness fakery and constitutional rights to a third rate TV station reporter with a superiority complex. Can you afford to miss seeing this one?

    “Of course, if they were really interested in finding America’s hate-filled extremists, they should have set up shop in Washington, D.C. But I suppose such a sentiment will just get me added to their hit list.”

    James I snorted coffee out my nose laughing at this bold truth so finely put here. Thank you for the informative laugh! I don’t comment much but I just want you to know that your work has meant a great deal to me for years. Thank you so much for what you do.

  10. Chris says:

    Great article James. The SPLC reminds me of the ADL (Anti-Defamation League, which was supposedly “fighting” Anti-Semitism) in the 90s. The ADL literally ran agents who infiltrated opposing “hate” groups like the Neo-Nazi’s and such and would cause bombings and killings so as to inflame the other side and perpetuate the anti-semitism it claimed to “fight against”. They were caught doing this numerous times. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Southern Poverty Law Center did the same (employs agent provacateurs, et al.)

    maybe time for a new country by country guide?^^

    In Germany the first law against hate speech has already been decided. I believe it comes into effect october.
    It’s called Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz, colloquially called Netzwerkzersetzungsgesetz, the latter meaning network decomposition (as in for the communist KGB/STASI strategy) law.

    But we see the effects already.
    Like the SPLC we have a major player here: Amadeu Antonio Foundation.
    It had the same abnormal revenues. All the anti-gender, anti-leftists sites – most prominently probably sciencefiles.org – covered its shady activities over the last years.
    It is considerably financed by a ministry of the government (BMFSJ).

    The best part: It’s chairwoman is Anetta Kahane. A former Stasi member for years. Father communist. She got her German wikipedia page changed, so you read now she is a “human rights activists” in the first sentence, instead of Stasi agent (as still on the English page).

    If you understand German. The most horrifying interview she gave for the ARD (3 1/2 minutes):
    She is explicitly invited to comment the new law against hate speech (the mentioned Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz). She is introduced as: There is critic for this law. (!!)
    And she does the following: She says it is a bad law because it puts the stress on the operators (e.g. facebook google twitter) and it is difficult for them to decide in the short amount of time (24hrs).
    Then the bomb: She explicitly asks for more state attorneys, police and (!) creating an own [law apparatus] infrastructure (!).
    So she does explicitly ask for a new MfS, for a new STASI! Pure horror!

    By the way, youtube mentions on hate speech the Amadeu Antonio foundation as first information source (out of three):

    What we have seen for the trump rally we also see here for AfD. ‘Last chance’, against replacement migration etc.: http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/ageing/replacement-migration.shtml

    Lots of people in the alternative German media call themselves now libertarian (though I doubt it is more than an ideology they appreciate now than a deep understanding) and so the libertarian spectrum is split for go voting or not voting (majority the former).
    I mean nobody knew libertarianism in Germany until 2002 or something anyway, so the perspective is a hugely different than in the USA.

    Media is exactly like pro-Hillary in the states.
    It’s the fight against ‘right’ (literally meant!, as it has been for decades but now intensified as there is now a huge part of the population identifying with the ‘right’ and of course refusing to let themselves call Nazi (and more or less right equals Nazi in Germany)).

    So growing civil war atmosphere definitely here.

    The major muslim organisation has between welcomed the programs against hate speech as well.

    It’s not a nightmare like in Syria or Jemen of course but it seems to be coming step by step by step :(.


    • Mielia says:


      Apart from a coming new MfS in Germany. (Between I learned Zersetzung is a word used in the English language as well – like Blitzkrieg or Schadenfreude.)
      HNN (the Mercolas) featured an article naming google Gestapo-like and naming 400 websites etc. that are on googles (virtual) kill list, including corbettreport (though written wrong, but the links is correct), newsbud, lewrockwell and truthstreammedia, linking to a truthstream video.

      • mkey says:

        That article is quite misleading. Those 400 links are not the sites G00gle doesn’t want you to visit but a list of sites the author assumes they don’t want you to visit.

        Weatherwar101 doesn’t appear to be on the list.
