Twitter Drops Southern Poverty Law Center As Safety Partner

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, identified 1,020 organizations in its 2018 hate-group report. 

But increasingly, people are realizing that the image SPLC tries to portray to the public is not to be trusted. Twitter recently removed the SPLC from its list of “safety partners” working to combat “hateful conduct and harassment,” following the firing of SPLC’s co-founder, Morris Dees, and the resignations of its president and legal director.

Christian organizations labeled as hate groups by SPLC—usually for their stance on Biblical marriage—have long worked to demonstrate that SPLC has become little more than a left-wing propaganda operation. And former SPLC staffer Bob Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accused the nonprofit group in a March 21 New Yorker article of “ripping off donors” while ignoring racial discrimination and sexual harassment.
