Petition Alert: Investigate the SPLC's Work with the Biden Administration
Only weeks ago, a staff attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was arrested at a violent protest. It's not the first time the leftist group has been linked to domestic terrorism.
As you may recall, the SPLC's "Hate Map" inspired a deranged gunman in 2012 to attack Family Research Council! This latest incident might signal a turning point... if we work together to let the truth be known.
On March 5, approximately 150 individuals departed a music festival in Atlanta, changed into black clothing, then entered the construction site of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. A "coordinated and very violent attack" ensued, to quote Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum, as perpetrators threw bricks and Molotov cocktails at officers and set off fireworks.
This group of domestic terrorists set fires that destroyed multiple pieces of construction equipment. Amazingly, no officers were harmed during the riot as they "used non-lethal enforcement to conduct arrests," according to a police statement.
One of those charged with domestic terrorism in the attack was Thomas Webb Jurgens, a staff lawyer with the noted leftist advocacy group, the SPLC.
Yet somehow the SPLC is still viewed as a legitimate source of information and analysis by the mainstream media and even government agencies.
With the balance of power recently shifting in Congress, we are not without recourse. We have prepared a petition to ask the U.S. House of Representatives to examine whether this organization should have any role in advising the Biden administration.
Of course, the SPLC claimed their lawyer Jurgens was a "legal observer" of these events and blamed his arrest on "heavy-handed law enforcement intervention against protesters."
Let's be clear. Out of approximately 150 "protestors" involved, only 35 particularly disruptive ones were arrested - and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation then charged a mere 23 people, with Jurgens among them.
The SPLC's statement essentially sanctioned Jurgens to be an advisor to Antifa, a loose network that has once again sparked violence against law enforcement and government facilities. It's similar to how the SPLC has provoked violent actions in the past.
Recall that the SPLC maintains a "Hate Map" that includes conservative and Christian groups that hold to biblical views on marriage. A gunman who targeted FRC in August 2012 and was later convicted of domestic terrorism cited FRC's inclusion on that map as the reason why he targeted us.
Outrageously, the SPLC still lists FRC on its "Hate Map"! Their goal is to intimidate and silence anyone who holds to a biblical worldview or advocates for conservative principles.
Now is the time to finally expose SPLC as the dangerous, radical leftist group it is.
The opportunity before us begins with what's called the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. In January, the new leadership of the U.S. House established this body under the auspices of the House Judiciary Committee.
The subcommittee's mandate is to investigate the Biden administration for capricious, seemingly arbitrary actions by federal law enforcement in recent years. We're calling on these lawmakers to expose the SPLC and its web of influence across government and other spheres of society.
The SPLC's reach into federal agencies is no exaggeration. Earlier this year, the FBI was forced to retract a leaked internal memo from the Richmond field office labeling "radical-traditionalist Catholic[s]" as potential violent extremists. That memo, which cited the SPLC as its source, did "not meet the exacting standards of the FBI," the Bureau admitted.
How is it that the SPLC, which has partnered with law enforcement agencies, the FBI, and the U.S. Department of Defense, has a staff lawyer involved in an anti-law enforcement riot?
Enough is enough!
Paul, you can make a difference right now by signing our petition calling on Congress to investigate the SPLC's involvement with the Biden administration, federal agencies, and more!
Our goal is to gather thousands of petitions over the next few weeks to deliver to the leadership of the Subcommittee. Thank you in advance for signing the petition and for standing with FRC in upholding faith, family, and freedom.
The Petition to Investigate the SPLC states:
To the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government: Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Ranking Member Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-Virgin Islands)
Whereas: The Southern Poverty Law Center has unfairly targeted Family Research Council and many other organizations as "hate groups" for holding conservative, biblical worldviews.
Whereas: The Southern Poverty Law Center's actions have incited harassment and violence against Family Research Council and other organizations and leaders, including a domestic terrorism attack on Family Research Council by a gunman in August 2012.
Whereas: A staff attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center was recently arrested and charged with domestic terrorism along with 22 other assailants in the March 5, 2023, anti-law enforcement attack on the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center.
Whereas: The Southern Poverty Law Center is well known for threatening and bullying school systems, teachers, and parents with expensive legal actions and complaints filed with federal and state-level Civil Rights Offices for questioning their involvement in public school curriculum.
Therefore, I urge this subcommittee to investigate the Biden administration's and federal agencies' continued reliance upon the Southern Poverty Law Center as a trusted resource for information and data. The bullying tactics of this anti-Christian organization have incited domestic terrorist activities, as well as lawsuits against parents who disagree with the SPLC's radical "Learning for Justice" curriculum in K-12 public schools.
An honest review of the Southern Poverty Law Center's activities and anti-conservative bias will show that federal agencies should cut all ties with this dangerous and disgraced organization.
