SPLC "Hate Groups" and Reality

There is no legal definition for "hate group," which is why even the FBI does not, cannot, designate "hate groups," but somehow a private fundraising company can?

In 2015 the company assigned 40 "hate groups" to New Jersey, giving that state the fourth highest total in the land and causing Mark Pitcavage of the Anti-Defamation League to publicly denounce the SPLC's bogus counts.

“According to Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the SPLC has a habit of counting single individuals as groups or chapters, which can give a skewed impression of hate groups in any given state.”

“The Southern Poverty Law Center’s list is wildly inflated,” said Pitcavage. “They list skinhead groups in places where there are no organized groups, but instead it’s just a couple of individuals.”

After being publicly outed by the ADL, the SPLC slashed New Jersey's count from 40 to 21 overnight. THIS is hard data?

This is the same SPLC that claims that the largest category of "hate group" in the land is Black and/or Muslim.

The company counted 201 Black and Black Muslim groups for 2016, which far outnumbers its 130 alleged Klan groups outright, and all of its alleged neo-Nazi, racist skinhead and white nationalist groups by two-to-one, respectively.

The SPLC also claims that its 101 anti-Muslim "hate groups" pose an existential threat, but nobody in the media seems to believe that the SPLC's 89 Muslim "hate groups" are even newsworthy. That's nearly a one-to-one ratio.

If the SPLC are going to be your go-to "experts" then you have to accept ALL of their claims, no matter how inconvenient and patently ridiculous they are
