THREAD: Thanks again to @RepMattGaetz for calling on @JeffBezos and @amazon to get a "divorce" from the SPLC. @mattgaetz brought up this important issue twice in today's #BigTechHearing c-span.org/video/?c489632… /1
He again pressed Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg on whether or not they consider Ben Carson an extremist. c-span.org/video/?c489633… /2
@mattgaetz hit the nail on the head: Why would @JeffBezos trust an organization that takes "mainstream Christian doctrine and label it as hate"? That's what the SPLC routinely does, and it's dangerous. /3
As I explain in my book #MakingHatePay: The Corruption of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the SPLC's defamation against @FRCdc inspired an attempted terrorist attack. Its lies led a senator to compare @AllianceDefends to Cambodian dictator Pol Pot.

🚨BREAKING: Librarians in a South Carolina school district HID their card catalog from parents😲 A librarian wrote that she did this to prevent moms and dads from scouring it "for critical race theory books."‼️ @Moms4Liberty got receipts🧾 through FOIA

“Instead of listing these books as available in the library, they are making a conscious decision to include them in curriculum read aloud in class so parents don’t know," the Anderson County Moms for Liberty chair, Carly Carter, told me.
"What’s most insulting here is that their intention is to cut parents out," Carter added. "They want to expose children to a social curriculum that they don’t want their parents to know anything about. That's appalling.”‼️

🚨BREAKING: The Southern Poverty Law Center tried to sic the DOJ's hate crimes division on @Moms4Liberty @DefendingEd @ADFLegal @FRCdc @FAIRImmigration @CIS_org and others with a briefing on its annual hate map report. @OversightPR has the receipts.🧾
Before releasing the 2022 hate map in June 2023, the version including parental rights groups👨‍👩‍👧‍👦, the SPLC reached out to the DOJ to offer a briefing. The DOJ confirmed to @dcexaminer's @BreccanFThies the briefing did occur. Here's the teaser SPLC sent.
@dcexaminer @BreccanFThies The teaser report claimed that "far-right lawmakers are pushing legislation straight from the scripts of hate groups, including bills that seek to control the bodies of women and those who can give birth, whitewash black history in schools, and criminalize LGBTQ+ people."

🚨NOT THE ONION: The Anti-Defamation League told me it doesn't consider Audrey Hale, the Nashville shooter who identified as transgender⚧️ and wrote about "white privilege," a left-wing extremist because Hale referred to her victims as "faggots," an anti-LGBTQ epithet.😲 Image
ADL released a report Tuesday, claiming right-wing ideologies motivated all the "extremist murders" of 2023. I found this curious🤔 b/c 3 pages of Hale's manifesto, published by @scrowder, echo left-wing talking points and the Left pushes gender ideology.
@scrowder The ADL claimed it "did not find clear evidence of extremism" in Hale's case because the manifesto "contained hateful epithets directed at white and LGBTQ+ people🏳️‍🌈, which did not provide evidence of any particular extremist ideology."

BREAKING: The federal government reached out for advice on “domestic terrorism” to a group that suggests conservatives and Christians harbor a KKK-like hatred and has itself inspired terrorism against a Christian nonprofit.
Law-abiding Americans increasingly are convinced that their government views them as an enemy, perhaps even a "domestic terrorism threat." This newly unearthed video📽️ may confirm those fears. Image
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which gained its reputation by suing KKK groups into bankruptcy, took its program monitoring the Klan and weaponized it against conservatives, putting mainstream groups on a hate map🗺️ with Klan chapters.

🚨BREAKING: Claudine Gay takes to New York Times to offer "words of warning," claiming that "trusted institutions of all types—from public health agencies to news organizations—will continue to fall victim to coordinated attempts to undermine their legitimacy." I wonder why. 🤔

Gay's warning here is symptomatic of an establishment embracing radical ideas that undermine their original goals, then acting impudent when those ideas blow up in their faces. Her public health comment is telling—institutions abused power during COVID. dailysignal.com/2023/01/12/not…
Naturally, Gay plays the victim again: "I make an ideal canvas for projecting every anxiety about the generational and demographic changes unfolding on American campuses: a Black woman selected to lead a storied institution." Let's unpack this.

🚨GASLIGHTING AMERICA: New SPLC report on "pseudoscience" seeks to demonize all dissent from transgender orthodoxy and discredit the doctors who warn against "gender-affirming care." SPLC calls them tools of "white supremacy" & "theocracy" 🧵
"The controversy over trans health care is manufactured to reinforce both white supremacy and the political goals of the Christian Right," R.G. Cravens, a research analyst at SPLC, says in a video announcing the project. How, exactly? 🤔 Image
Bear with me—this is so insane it's hilarious.😂 SPLC claims opposition to trans orthodoxy⚧️ abets white supremacy because a slightly larger sliver of the Latino population identifies as transgender (1.8%) than the tiny sliver of the white population that does so (1.3%).
