Doing The Legal Rain Dance

For years, the “Southern Poverty Law Center” has been slandering perfectly legitimate conservative organizations, smearing them as “hate groups”.

The practice hit home a few years back, when they called the “Taxpayers League of Minnesota” a “hate group”. Their “hate” was, apparently, manifested by getting lawmakers to pledge not to raise taxes – because taxes, apparently, are love.

Most slandered people can’t fight back, as I found out myself a few years back; it’s expensive, courts err very sharply on the side of free speech (which is a good thing in the great scheme of things, of course), and even if you “win” in court, the judge can rule that a retraction and apology will suffice (as I myself was told in 2012 by a lawyer, who told me I had a very strong defamation case against an online stalker – provided I came up with a $20K retainer and accepted the fact that there was a very strong chance of a legal victory with no financial payback whatsoever).  B

But with all that aside, it’s good to see someone  taking it to the fake watchdog group

On Tuesday, D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM) filed a lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the charity navigation organization GuideStar, and Amazon for defamation, religious discrimination, and trafficking in falsehood. The SPLC listed DJKM as a “hate group,” while GuideStar also categorized it in those terms, and Amazon kept the ministry off of its charity donation program, Amazon Smile.

“We embarked today on a journey to right a terrible wrong,” Dr. Frank Wright, president and CEO at DJKM, said in a statement Tuesday. “Those who knowingly label Christian ministries as ‘hate’ groups, solely for subscribing to the historic Christian faith, are either woefully uninformed or willfully deceitful. In the case of the Southern Poverty Law Center, our lawsuit alleges the latter.”

The SPLC has labeled DJKM an “anti-LGBT hate group” for its opposition to same-sex marriage and transgenderism.

I’m hoping Kennedy wins and wins huge.

If I can find a place to donate to the legal fund, I’ll post it after I donate.

  1. It strikes me that the SPLC has more or less decided that half the country is a hate group, but they’re not man enough to admit this because nobody would take them seriously if they did.

  2. Marketed correctly, this could bring in millions to mount a legal defense against the documented hate group SPLC.

    I suggest announcing the SPLC headquarters will be donated to the Donald J. Trump Presidential library after it is lost as part of the settlement.

  3. The anti-hate people want you to hate their enemies.
    The people who promote tolerance are intolerant of those who do not promote tolerance.
    And the anti-racists believe the most important thing about you is your race.

  4. I suggest announcing the SPLC headquarters will be donated to the Donald J. Trump Presidential library after it is lost as part of the settlement.

    GS: It just might be big enough to be the gatehouse/ticket admissons building for the Trump Presidential Library:

    Trump could buy the Trustmark building behind it to house his library, and build a tunnel between the two.

  5. Like I said in the posting about the oil company suing the NODAP pipeline protesters…let this start a trend. Go after these disgusting organizations that are destroying the world.
