The SPLC and Antifa

SPLC claims its lawyer’s arrest “is not evidence of any crime, but of heavy-handed law enforcement intervention against protesters.”

Joe Biden, lead propagandist for the racist Democrat Party and their hate hustlers, traveled to Selma, Alabama, this week on the anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” a turning point in the civil rights movement more than a half century ago. He did so to promote the Demos’ BIG Lie that black voters are still subject to “voter suppression,” repeating that claim to promote the Left’s effort to institutionalize systemic voter fraud.

Regarding Biden’s visit, Nate Jackson observed: “Biden and his fellow Democrats have grossly tarnished the legacy of Martin Luther King, John Lewis, and other civil rights figures they claim to memorialize for their actions in support of actual voting rights back in 1965. What Democrats want now is to trash the Constitution and destroy election integrity permanently, while painting Republicans as racists for objecting to their ruse.”

Predictably, coinciding with that anniversary, my inbox had fundraising appeals from one of the nation’s leading hate profiteers, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), coat-tailing on the Selma anniversary.

The SPLC was founded by the now-disgraced and deposed self-promoter Morris Dees, who perfected the Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton race-bait shakedown model for extorting money from corporations to beef up their DEI creds. That is the model perfected by the Marxist so-called “Black Lives Matter” radicals to extort billions from businesses since its rise in 2020.

Dees was very adept at monetizing this racket. As his former law partner Millard Fuller said of their years in business: “Morris and I shared the overriding purpose of making a pile of money. We were not particular about how we did it; we just wanted to be independently rich.”

Dees is gone, but the SPLC continues to successfully make hundreds of millions of dollars on the monetizing model he established, taking in more than $140 million according to its latest 990 report, on top of an accumulated endowment of more than $730 million. The fact that the FBI and DOJ reports there are few white supremacists around these days has not hindered the SPLC’s marketing rhetoric and fundraising.

What the latest SPLC fundraising emails did not mention this week was the arrest of one of its lawyers, Thomas Jurgens, who was among 23 others arrested in Atlanta last weekend after an attack on police at a new training facility. The latest attack is an escalation of hostilities which began in January after a Georgia state trooper was critically wounded by an armed “protester.” Those involved in the most recent assault have been charged with domestic terrorism.

The SPLC claims Jurgens was there as a “legal observer” for the leftist National Lawyers Guild. In other words, he was there to document the police response to the attack and ensure the rioters were protected. The SPLC says his arrest “is not evidence of any crime, but of heavy-handed law enforcement intervention against protesters.”

Like the National Lawyers Guild, the SPLC has a long history of support for the so-called “antifa movement” of self-styled “anti-fascist” fascists, who are, likewise, supported by leftist Beltway Democrats and elected officials across the country.

Was this attack antifa? According to Atlanta PD: “On March 5, 2023, a group of violent agitators used the cover of a peaceful protest of the proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers. They changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers.” Yep, that is antifa’s MO.

A bail fund has been set up for the defense and release of those arrested. Perhaps Jurgens and the terrorists will be out in time to join the next round of “mostly peaceful protests” planned for this upcoming weekend. And to be clear, these attacks are warmups for another Demo-sponsored “summer of rage.”
