Southern Poverty Law Center To Classify White Lives Matter As Hate Group Because They Deserve It

Southern Poverty Law Center concludes that “White Lives Matter” meets all the criteria of a hate group.

Yesterday, social justice and legal advocacy organization Southern Poverty Law Center broke the news that it will classify Whites Lives Matter — a clownish, counterrevolutionary, Neo-Nazi led frat of Caucasoids opposed to the movement for Black lives — as a hate group.

Thank goodness.

Part of SPLC’s agenda involves following and reporting on the various “activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists.” For obvious reasons, White Lives Matter fits the bill of groups to look out for perfectly.

According to an editor’s note on SPLC’s website, the decision to list Whites Lives Matter among its hate groups going into 2017 was “confirmed in mid-August 2016” after concluding that sole purpose of White Lives Matter is to function as “racist response to the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Fleshing out that point, the editor said

“White Lives Matter is a white supremacist group founded by people with long histories in racist movements. The group, which is dedicated to ‘the promotion of the white race,’ claims to have representatives in several states, which the SPLC is currently investigating. A full list of White Lives Matter chapters will be released in February 2017 along with all hate groups for that calendar year.”

On its website, SPLC states that hate groups should be characterized as “those that vilify entire groups of people based on immutable characteristics such as race or ethnicity”

When SPLC senior fellow Mark Potoc spoke to ABC News, he expounded on that definition, connecting it to SPLC’s newest entry into hater territory:

“This is exactly what White Lives Matter has been doing. When you have a group of people saying that an entire group of human beings are less — that all black people are criminals and all Muslims are mad bombers — that’s a hate group.”

Contrast this to Black Lives Mater, which Potoc calls “a civil rights organization.”

In terms of the scale and reach of its operations, SPLC has determined that Whites Lives Matter is small, for the moment; utilizes online resources; and boast a membership of loosely knitted devotees from previously existing white supremacist groups, such as Aryan Renaissance Society. As its name suggests, the ARS is hellbent on resurrecting “the Aryan oligarchy based on genetic aristocracy.”

Naturally, White Lives Matter responded to SPLC’s depiction — an accurate one, I might add — with a statement of its own:

“The SPLC routinely takes a very aggressive stance against white ethno-nationalism, so it doesn’t surprise us that they would jump on a new opportunity to do that. To understand the SPLC’s motivation to label White Lives Matter as a hate group, you have to consider they are a Jewish organization acting in the interests of a political ideology known as Talmudic Zionism.”

Wait. There’s more, unfortunately.

“We value Western civilization and the inherent safety of majority white populations. We believe that if we’re going to have non-white immigration to Western countries, they should not make us dumber or poorer. This means that immigrants should meet a minimum IQ requirement of 100, and should not be allowed to come to Western countries and get paid to not work.”

Nope, it’s not a delusion. Your read right. The fuckery that is fantasies of white power is very much real in America 2016.
