Extortion Scam by Lists

Civil Rights by its self is something honorable. It should be an intrinsic good, inherent to us all.
Unfortunately, as with so many good things, they get exploited by the ruthless and unscrupulous.
"Civil Rights" has become a racist game played by the worst elements in society as nothing but an extortion racket. These elements are most recognizable in the Congressional Black Caucus, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the Southern Poverty Law Center. m/r

The Fulford File | No, Virginia (Dare) The SPLC Was NEVER A “Civil Rights Stalwart”—It Was ALWAYS A “Dangerous Joke”

James Fulford  July 16, 2017

Some Respectable Right people have finally noticed the horrors committed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, basically because it has begun attacking mainstream Christian groups for “homophobia,” “transphobia” etc. etc. But this is invariably accompanied by pious claptrap about how the SPLC used to be OK. Nonsense. It was always a nasty racket.
Thus the Wall Street Journal recently featured an op-ed by Weekly Standard writer Jeryl Bier:
How did the SPLC become the default journalistic resource on purported hate speech, racism and extremism? Morris Dees, still the SPLC’s chief trial attorney, founded the organization in 1971 along with Joseph Levin Jr., now an emeritus board member. In its early years, the SPLC made a name for itself by winning some high-profile cases against the KKK and other white-supremacist groups. But over time its mission changed. In recent years it has focused on “tolerance education,” hate-group tracking (including an online “hate map”) and fundraising. [The Insidious Influence of the SPLC, June 21, 2017. Emphasis added]
And Politico, while conceding that the SPLC has gone overboard, called it a “Civil Rights” stalwart. [Has a Civil Rights Stalwart Lost Its Way?,  By Ben Schreckinger,  July/August 2017] ...
