There are so many costs to the Republican and conservative failure in the information war. The fact that so few know the truth about the Southern Poverty Law Center is one of them. Here is Matthew Vadum writing at FrontPageMag.com:
The Southern Poverty Law Center smears patriots and provides cover for the nation’s enemies.
The far-left Southern Poverty Law Center relentlessly promotes the Big Lie, wildly popular in the media, that conservative Americans are racists and the real threat to the nation rather than Islamic terrorists.
The group claims the principal enemies of the American people are presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, conservatives like David Horowitz, and the Tea Party movement.
The SPLC is a shamelessly hypocritical leftist attack machine funded by radical speculator George Soros and a rogue’s gallery of rich people and established philanthropies that want to fundamentally transform America. The fabulously wealthy 501(c)(3) nonprofit has an astounding one third of a billion dollars ($338 million) in assets, as well as investments in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, two offshore tax havens the Left loves to attack (but only when non-leftists stash cash there).
The Center characterizes all opposition to immigration and open borders as symptomatic of hate and all political expression of those views to be hate speech.

It may take some intellectual toughness to insist that the nation has the right to decide who may or may not cross its borders, but it’s not hate.
