Exposing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)

Reposted from the Jew Among You blog


The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) describes itself as a “nonprofit civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry, and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society,” and claims to “work toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.” (splcenter.org) The SPLC’s first priority is supposedly to combat “hate and extremism.” In their own words:

The Southern Poverty Law Center monitors hate groups and extremists throughout the United States and exposes their activities to law enforcement agencies, the media and the public. We’ve crippled some of the country’s most notorious hate groups by suing them for murders and other violent acts committed by their members.

In reality, the SPLC itself is a htate group. The SPLC exaggerates and then even fabricates racially motivated crimes supposedly committed by white people, while it systematically ignores, censors, and omits critical details from real racially motivated crimes committed against white people. In this way, the SPLC stirs up unjustified anger, resentment, and hatred toward white people, leading to just the sort of violent hate crimes it pretends to combat. This scheme has earned the “nonprofit” SPLC well over $200 million (splcenter.org).  See Exposing the SPLC – Morris Dee’s hate crimes and isteve for much more on the Center’s profiteering.

This paper documents the Southern Poverty Law Center’s anti-white bias, a bias so spectacular it often defies belief.


The SPLC maintains a list of “hate incidents.” (splcenter.org):

Incidents of apparent hate crimes and hate group activities listed here are drawn primarily from media sources. These incidents include only a fraction of the approximately 191,000 reported and unreported hate crimes that a 2005 government report estimated occur annually.

To expose the SPLC’s anti-white bias, I choose, more or less at random, violent crimes satisfying certain conditions:

1. The victims were white and the perpetrators were non-white;

2. The crime was clearly motivated, at least in part, by racial bias, making it a hate crime by definition (fbi.gov); and

3. The crime was reported by the media to the extent that a Web search turns up multiple articles from reasonably mainstream sources.

Then I looked up these crimes in the SPLC’s list of “apparent hate crimes and hate group activities… drawn primarily from media sources.” Here is what I found. Please draw your own conclusions.

August 2012: Mass black-on-white mob violence during “Beat Whitey Night” escapes SPLC’s attention (Des Moines, IA)

On August 14, 2010 in Des Moines, 30 to 40 black youths roamed the Iowa State Fairgrounds attacking whites at random, an event they called, “Beat Whitey Night.” Sources:

“Attacks mar Iowa State Fair” (nbc-2.com)

“‘Beat Whitey Night’: Racism is suspected in Iowa State Fair attacks” (ksdk.com; note that the artwork depicts a white fist next to the word ‘racism’)

“‘Beat Whitey Night’ at Iowa State Fair” (thesmokinggun.com)

“Race-based riots underscore the need for personal protection on the Iowa State Fairgrounds” (examiner.com)

The SPLC ignored “Beat Whitey Night” entirely: none of these black-on-white hate crimes appear on the Center’s list. The SPLC elected to include only one “hate crime” from Des Moines in 2010, an act of vandalism:

Des Moines, IA

Vandals painted a swastika and the letters “KKK” on a man’s truck.

Type: Vandalism

Reported: 07/21/2010

This sort of vandalism is usually a hoax perpetrated by the “victim” himself.

May 2010: SPLC Mistakes Hours of Racially Motivated Torture for Act of “Vandalism” (Seattle, WA)

On May 25, 2010 in Seattle, a white man, Shane McClellan, was held hostage and tortured for hours by a black man and an Asian man for being white. They beat him, robbed him, whipped him with his belt, threatened him with a gun and a knife, burned him with cigarettes, and urinated on him. Sources:

“W. Seattle teen beaten bloody in possible hate crime” (komonews.com)

“White Teen Says Attack Was a Hate Crime” (abcnews.go.com)

“Shane McClellan Was Telling the Truth” (soundpolitics.com)

“Dad mad suspects with ‘my son’s blood on their hands’ released” (seattlepi.com)

“Charges filed against Shane McClellan’s alleged attackers” (westseattleherald.com)

“Second defendant in West Seattle hate crime pleads guilty” (westsesattleherald.com)

“Man sentenced to prison for hate-crime beating of teen” (seattletimes.nwsource.com)

“Second defendant in West Seattle hate crime pleads guilty” (westseattleherald.com)

“Man sentenced to 6 years prison for West Seattle hate crime” (king5.com)

“Race and the final conflict” (wnd.com)

The SPLC lied, claiming the perpetrators only “beat” their victim, and classified the racially motivated abduction and torture of Shane McClellan as an act of vandalism:

Seattle, WA

A black man and an Asian man beat a 16 year old body for being white.

Type: Vandalism

Reported: 05/30/2010

This entry may be the SPLC’s idea of a joke. In any case, in the Center’s year-end report for 2010, this horrible crime was counted as an act of anti-white “vandalism.”

November-December 2009: SPLC Reduces Largest Hate Crime Spree in Denver’s History to “Legal Development,” Minus the Races

In late 2009 in Denver, police arrested 38 blacks for racially motivated assaults against whites and Hispanics. According to Police Chief Gerry Whitman, “it was perhaps the largest racially motivated crime spree in the city’s history” (denverpost.com) You can watch NBC’s coverage at brightcove.com

For example, Ashley Celestine (black male) was charged with aggravated robbery and first-degree assault for knocking out a 25 year old man from behind and stealing his cell phone, while Kavean McCloud (black male) was charged with first-degree assault and conspiracy to commit first-degree assault for fracturing a 24 year old man’s skull.

The SPLC reduced this hate crime spree to a single entry of one of the 38 arrests, censored the race of the perpetrators and victims, and classified it as a legal development:

Denver, CO

A juvenile was arrested on charges on aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and bias-motivated crimes in connection with 26 racially-motivated assaults in the downtown area.

Type: Legal Developments

Reported: 11/23/2009

So according to the SPLC, an arrest for 26 violent hate crimes is merely a “legal development,” not an assault, as opposed to the following entry about what is very obviously an actual legal development in a case involving a homeless man shouting insults at a black woman:

Boulder, CO

William Bagosy, 49, pled guilty to third-degree assault and was sentenced to 78 days in jail for shouting racial slurs at a black woman outside a homeless shelter in November.

Reported: 01/27/2009

Almost everything else about this entry is wrong as well: William Bagosy actually pled guilty to misdemeanor harassment in June 2008 for shouting racial slurs outside a homeless shelter in May of that year (dailycamera.com). His motive was a lack of hot dog buns. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail after violating a condition of his unsupervised probation: going back to the convenience store that rain out of buns.

Then Bagosy was arrested in November for sexually assaulting a homeless woman; there was no racial motive (dailycamera.com). He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third-degree assault and was sentenced to 78 days in jail.

It took all of two Web searches to find this information. Instead of reporting the truth, the SPLC chose to fabricate a racially motivated “third-degree assault” against a black woman.

Although the SPLC censored the race of the perpetrators (black) and victims (white and Hispanic) in the Denver hate crime spree of late 2009, they prefer to include this information whenever the victims are black, as in the following entry, also from Denver:

Denver, CO

High school students chanted racial slurs and derogatory terms at visiting black basketball players during a game.

Type: Intimidation

Reported 2/11/2009

The “racial slurs and derogatory terms” used in this “intimidation”: “marshmallow,” “buckwheat,” and ” shrimp boat” (denverpost.com). How awful.

Aug 2009: SPLC Fails to notice 10-15 black men brutally beat white man for dating black woman (Buffalo, NY)

On August 18, 2009 in Buffalo, a group of 10-15 black men brutally attacked a white man, Brian Milligan, for dating a black woman. They beat him with pieces of concrete, inflicting damage to his brain, and kicked him in the face, breaking his jaw. See “Father wants son’s beating tried as a hate crime” (cnn.com) and “Was the Beating of Brian Milligan Racially Motivated?” (truecrimereport.com)

The SPLC, of course, simply ignored this racially motivated black-on-white mob attack. Brian Milligan appears nowhere on the Center’s list.
