DeVos pushes back on 'increase the budget' cries
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has found herself facing off with former Dept. of Education chiefs who disagree with the Trump administration.
A coalition of Christians and conservatives is continuing its efforts to expose the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
The campaign is a collaborative effort by many Christian and conservative groups that have united to defeat what they call a common enemy. The website is exposeSPLC.com, which features an eight-minute video about the SPLC.
"It's about their money, where they park their money [and] about the injustices that they commit," explained organizer and attorney Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute.
Dacus contends that was once a valued organization fighting for the civil rights of minorities has become a group of political activists driven by money. As a result, the legal expert maintains the SPLC has worked hard to create "new hate groups" in order to create new hatred, isolation and vilification.
"You can't really raise money to fight a dragon that's already been slain," Dacus asserted. "There has never been – in my recollection – ever such a great threat to our First Amendment and our constitutional freedoms by any other third-party organization than the Southern Poverty Law Center."
People appearing in the video include Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) Michael Farris, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Carol Swain – a political scientist and former professor who has targeted by the SPLC. American Family Association President Tim Wildmon is also in the video.
"At the end of the video, there is a petition that allows people to sign that and to weigh in against the SPLC – and specifically to inform the media that we object to their usage of the SPLC as some kind of impartial, credible third-party civil rights organization," Dacus continued. "They are not. They are the farthest thing from that."
The petition also requests companies donating to SPLC to stop.
