Censorship from the SPLC
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a disgusting cesspool of an organization, and their latest actions prove that fact tenfold. The New York Post is reporting that the SPLC self-censored survey results to hide the fact that at least 2,000 educators across the country reported racial slurs and other derogatory comments directed at white students in the first days after Donald Trump’s election:
The SPLC’s widely cited report — “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” — reported that 40 percent of the more than 10,000 educators who responded to the survey “have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation.” ....
But the SPLC didn’t present the whole story. The Montgomery, Ala.-based nonprofit self-censored results from a key question it asked educators — whether they agree or disagree with the following statement: “I have heard derogatory language or slurs about white students.”
Asked last week to provide the data, SPLC initially said it was having a hard time getting the information “from the researchers.” Pressed, SPLC spokeswoman Kirsten Bokenkamp finally revealed that “about 20 percent answered affirmatively to that question.”
As Hans Bader, former Education Department civil rights attorney, correctly concludes, “[The SPLC] left that result out because it would not fit their ideological narrative. It was deemed an inconvenient truth.”
This is far from the first time the SPLC has doctored the truth to fit their agenda. A separate report released Nov. 29 claims there were nearly 900 reports of Trump-related “harassment and intimidation” incidents across the country in the ten days following the election. However, the SPLC can’t confirm that any of the reported incidents actually took place.
Even crazier: simply mentioning “build the wall” accounted for 467 incidents of hate.
If a white person coughs in the direction of a person of color, the MSM cries hate. If a white person is beaten in broad daylight because he presumably voted for Trump, the MSM doesn’t say a thing.
