George Soros is one of the biggest forces in left-wing politics.
He’s funneled hundreds of millions of dollars into groups committed to destroying President Trump, his supporters, and the entire conservative/liberty movement.
And a bombshell lawsuit is about to take down the crown jewel of Soros’ empire.
After the 2016 election, five groups funded by George Soros and the Southern Poverty Law Center teamed up to kick off the “Change the Terms” campaign.
Their stated goal was to eradicate so-called “hate speech” on the internet.
What they really schemed to put into place was a regime to censor all conservative speech on social media.
The left was furious over the results of the 2016 election.
And the major power players in the media, tech and liberal activist groups were determined to never allow anything like Donald Trump’s victory to ever happen again.
Since they believed Trump won the election because of his mastery of social media – as well as the ability of Trump supporters to spread information from alternative media sources – the left reasoned they had to shut down conservative speech.
And that is exactly what happened.
Conservative pundit Gavin McInnes was one of the prime targets.
McInnes built a following on the right attacking man-hating feminists and political correctness of all stripes.
Because he became popular, the liberal overlords that run Silicon Valley silenced him.
YouTube and Twitter banned McInnes from their platforms.
Social media companies effectively muted his ability to speak in the public square.
And they did this with the help of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In the 1960s, it was a civil rights organization.
Now it is a fraud.
The Southern Poverty Law Center trades off a reputation it shed long ago to smear conservatives as racists and bigots.
But because they were once a respected civil rights organization, social media companies dutifully comply with their requests to ban conservatives for engaging in hate speech.
To the Southern Poverty Law Center, any political view to the right of the New York Times editorial page is “hate speech”.
The Southern Poverty Law Center lists mainstream figures and groups like Ron Paul, the Family Research Council and the Center for Immigration Studies as engaging in “hate speech” or being a so-called “hate group.”
Their smear tactics have deadly consequences.
In 2012, a deranged leftist saw the Family Research Council on the SPLCE’s list of hate groups.
The lunatic barged into the FRC’s headquarters and attempted to assassinate the group’s leadership.
The murderous liberal wounded a security guard before being stopped.
But McInnes is not rolling over for these left-wing character assassins.
McInnes filed a lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center for “malicious” actions to destroy his ability to earn a living.
“SPLC’s defamatory, false, and misleading designation of Mr. McInnes as a ‘hate’ figure is purposefully deceitful and intended to tarnish Mr. McInnes’s reputation, disparage Mr. McInnes’s good name and work, inflict harm and financial damage, reduce Mr. McInnes’s goodwill and standing in the community, expose Mr. McInnes, his family and anyone else associated with him to public scorn, harassment, intimidation, and potential violence, and to denigrate, malign, and ridicule Mr. McInnes to countless individuals and potential employers and partners around the world,” McInnes’s lawsuit alleged.
Conservatives and liberty advocates cheered this move.
They contend that the SPLC long ago exposed itself as a sham group that does not care about civil rights.
The people that run the SPLC are hard-bitten leftist ideologues that want to demonize – and eventually criminalize through so-called “hate crime” laws – all conservative political speech.
McInnes’s lawsuit is the first step in fighting back and bringing down one of the worst bullies on the American left.
