Southern Poverty Law Center won’t label Antifa a HATE group, even though DHS calls them ‘domestic terrorists’

“So you’re OK with Antifa as long as they don’t say things that you don’t agree with?”

(National SentinelDouble Standards: The Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal organization best known for its so-called “Hate Map,” refuses to label Antifa a “hate group,” despite its members committing violence against Trump supporters and its federal designation as a domestic terrorist organization.

The SPLC’s hate map feature groups and organizations it has classified as hateful based on its own criteria. The U.S. Border Patrol and the Christian-themed Family Research Council are featured on the map.

But Antifa organizations are not included, The Washington Times reported.

Despite the domestic terrorist designation by the Department of Homeland Security and the existence of countless videos online documenting the Left-wing extremist group’s violence and hateful rhetoric, SPLC president Richard Cohen said Antifa does not represent hate.

“If you are familiar with our work, we write about antifa often,” Cohen said last week in a testimony he gave to the House Homeland Security Committee. “We condemn their tactics — I’ve said so publicly and we do so always — but antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.”

The group does, however, base its violence on political affiliation, as most of it has been, and continues to be, directed at conservatives and supporters of President Donald J. Trump, as DHS and the FBI have said.

Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., said during Cohen’s testimony on domestic terrorism that his defense of Antifa “reduces” the SPLC’s “credibility.”

“So you’re OK with Antifa as long as they don’t say things that you don’t agree with, but it’s OK if they hit people on the head with a bike lock or set things on fire or riot and flout the law by wearing face masks and incite riots — you’re OK with that?” Perry asked.

“We condemn groups like antifa, we write about them often. We don’t list them as hate groups,” Cohen responded.

Cohen was also asked why the SPLC doesn’t include groups on its Hate Map such as the Students for Justice in Palestine who have reportedly advocated for violence against Jewish people.

“I don’t know about that particular group,” Cohen said. “We try to call hate as we see it. We limit our list not by left versus right but by groups that vilify others for factors such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or the like.”
