The Republican National Committee (RNC) approved a resolution repudiating the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the purported “anti-hate” organization that has become a vehicle for smearing conservatives and critics of radical leftism. The resolution commits the RNC to officially “Refuting the legitimacy of the Southern Poverty Law Center to identify hate groups.” The SPLC bills itself as an expert on “hate groups,” maintaining a “hate map” that tracks them around the country. However, the SPLC has repeatedly added mainstream conservative organizations to its list, smearing their reputation and allowing violent far-left criminals to locate and target them. The RNC resolution notes that the SPLC’s smears “puts conservative groups or voices at risk of attack.” Conservatives and critics of progressivism that have been smeared by the SPLC include the Family Research Council (which is currently part of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom), the Alliance Defending Freedom, White House speechwriter Stephen Miller, One America News reporter Jack Posobiec, moderate Muslim Maajid Nawaz, and Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Nawaz successfully sued the SPLC for falsely labeling him an “anti-Muslim extremist” in 2018, winning a $3.3 million settlement from the organization. In 2012, far-left radical Floyd Corkins used the SPLC’s “hate map” to locate the offices of the Family Research Council. He proceeded to the FRC’s offices with a loaded pistol, and opened fire on the office’s security staff before being stopped by an armed guard. He later told authorities that he planned to kill “as many people as he could” at the FRC, and explained that his crime was politically motivated — he had seen the FRC on the SPLC’s list of “anti-gay” organizations. Court records submitted by the FBI confirmed that Corkins, a former far-left activist, had indeed checked the SPLC website prior to his attack: ” Corkins left and returned the next day, Friday, August 10th, to pick up the pistol. The selection and surveillance of the FRC and other targets. Consistent with his statement to the FBI, a subsequent search of Corkins’s family computer revealed that on the afternoon of Sunday, August 12th, Corkins used the computer to visit the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Website, as well as the Websites for the FRC and the second organization on his handwritten list.” Despite the fact that the SPLC has lost defamation lawsuits and has served as an inspiration for acts of domestic terror, major corporations continue to rely on it to identify “hate groups” and “hate speech.” In 2018, the Daily Caller revealed that Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter all work with the discredited far-left organization.

FINALLY!!! Here at The Daily Buzz we’ve been calling out Morris Dees (the founder of the SPLC) and the rest of that nauseating bunch for years, and we’re thrilled to see the RNC finally agreeing and calling the SPLC out for who they are. The SPLC has been a darling among Democrat politicians and the dominantly liberal mainstream media. They are regularly referred to by the liberal media (i.e. CNN, MSNBC, PBS/NPR, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc.) as an authority on so-called “hate groups.” The SPLC goes after groups like the FRC in Colorado Springs where that shooting took place because they’re a Christian pro-life group. To the SPLC that should grounds to call them a “hate group.” And yet, they don’t list the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) as a hate group, because they’re a self-admitted socialist/communist group, and black racist. To the SPLC, that’s ok…and they get a pass. The SPLC are such hypocrites!! Check out the official NBPP web site here, https://www.cbpm.org/nbpp.html and you be the judge of whether or not they should be called a “hate group.” We sure do! SPLC is nothing more than a far-left/liberal, anti-Christian, anti-conservative, politically correct, political advocacy organization. We’re glad to see the RNC finally step up and go on the record and call them out. Excellent!!! 🙂
Former Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO), a strong advocate against illegal immigration, will reportedly run for Colorado gubernatorial election in 2018. Tancredo decided to enter the race for governor after a private poll revealed that he had a wide lead over other potential Republican candidates. The survey also revealed that Tancredo has a statistical tie with Democratic candidate Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO). Tancredo told Colorado Politics on Monday, “I think that all of the things we need to do in the state of Colorado really require some bold leadership. It will not be easy to get some real change here, but I think I can provide that kind of leadership. I’m not afraid of taking on tough issues and being bold.” Tancredo explained that difficult issues facing Colorado families include roads, gun rights, education, sanctuary cities, energy, and economic growth. Tancredo was a prominent critic of illegal immigration during the Bush administration. The Republican gubernatorial candidate believes that the Republican establishment tanked his chances of winning the Colorado gubernatorial primary in 2014 after a wave of negative ads from the Republican Governor Association tanked his standing in the polls. “We have to anticipate what the establishment will do. It could get ugly. I think there is a swamp here,” Tancredo admitted. Tancredo had discussed whether he should run with conservative groups since August. “I keep asking the same question — ‘Do you think I can beat (Polis)? Do you think I’m the guy who can do it?’” Tancredo said. “So far, it looks like I have a chance.” Tancredo added, “I am so mad at the Republicans who are presently in office or in the hunt for not speaking out in defense of free speech that it won’t take much to push me over the line.”
Yes!! We’re thrilled that former Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is seriously considering another run for Governor here in the great state of Colorado!! In the interest of disclosure, and as many of you know, I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Tom on a personal level for many years. He is the one who turned me on to “The Clash of Civilizations..,” and other writings, by Samuel P. Huntington. Tom is a great guy who thinks outside the box and would be a breath of fresh, albeit feisty, air in the governor’s mansion. We, of course, will keep a close eye on this developing story. 🙂
Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) said the executive chairman of Breitbart News Steve Bannon targeting Republican senators to help ensure President Donald Trump’s agenda was being moved forward is pushing policy that was “not what the party is.” Partial transcript as follows: TODD: There seems to be a massive battle inside this Republican party. Steve Bannon yesterday declared it a season of war against the Republican establishment, singling out people like Bob Corker in particular, and thought it was outrageous he cared to criticize the president. What do you make of what Steve Bannon is doing to the Republican party? KASICH: I was on a show not long ago saying I’m disappointed in the direction of the Republican party. They cannot be anti-trade or anti-immigrant. They just can’t walk away from increasing debt. The Republican party can’t go out and start grabbing people out of their homes who have been really good people living in this country and shipping them out of the country willy-nilly or taking away health care for millions of people. This is not what the party is. Look, I grew up in the Reagan era. Here’s what it was. It was sunny. It was positive, inclusive. It was a big tent, and there was room for everybody. Pro-growth, all the things that we really like. Connectivity, welcoming, that’s where this party needs to be. When we don’t head in that direction, I’m going to fight to push us in that direction.
I remember back when John Kasich was in Congress and was a positive advocate for balancing the federal budget. Now, he’s just a disgruntled whiner, since he lost in the primaries to Trump. So, he spends more and more time on liberal news outlets like CNN complaining about the direction of the Republican Party and hinting that he might leave. What a sore loser!! Last I checked, the stock market is through the roof, unemployment is at historic lows, and we’re rolling back the big government programs that Obama and hist fascist regime put in place. Plus, take a good look at who Trump has nominated for federal judges. John’s not only a sore loser.. He’s jealous.
Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, in an interview Sunday hinted that he would consider leaving the Republican Party if its members don’t get their act together. Kasich, who ran against President Trump in 2016, was the last man standing in Trump’s path for the presidency. He announced his decision to end his bid in May. Kasich is widely seen as a Republican moderate. “If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the party,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “Period. That’s the end of it.” Kasich made it clear that, in his opinion, the Democratic Party may not be a viable alternative. He said he has no “idea what the Democrats are for.” ‘What I’m trying to do is struggle for the soul of the Republican Party the way that I see it,’ Kasich said. ‘And I have a right to define it, but I’m not going to support people who are dividers.’ Kasich failed to gain traction with GOP voters in a race dominated by Trump’s ability to seize on the electorate’s anger and disdain of political insiders. Although Kasich tried to pitch himself as the best Republican to take on Hillary Clinton, the weight of the anti-Trump faction never got behind him. Viewed widely as a longshot candidate from the start, Kasich’s popularity shot up after his strong second-place finish in New Hampshire’s primary in early February. But from the South to the Midwest, many voters were captivated by his boisterous rivals, and his efforts to cast himself as a nicer alternative fell short. “The spirit, the essence of America lies in the hearts and souls of us,” he said. “Some missed this message. It wasn’t sexy, it wasn’t a great soundbite.”
If Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) leaves the GOP, then good riddance. He was somewhat effective with budget issues when he was in Congress. But, the last couple of years he has become nothing but a crybaby and a whiner. When the GOP had their convention in Ohio, John Kasich didn’t even show!! Talk about low class! Because Trump had beaten him in the primaries, John Kasich wasn’t big enough of a man to put it aside, like every other candidate that lost (including Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee) in the GOP primary. He just picked up his football and walked off the field like a sissy la la, and it reflected poorly on him. John said in this interview with Jake Tapper (who was probably salivating at another RINO attacking his party), that he, John Kasich, has “the right to define” what the “soul of the Republican Party” is…whatever that means. Umm…ok? Jake should have asked him to explain what the heck that means. John and other liberal RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) cannot get over the fact that Donald Trump won their party’s presidential nomination…and then won the general election! They’re still unable to process that. So, instead of putting the election behind them, rolling up their sleeves and being team players, and working for the people, they instead just whine on liberal tv networks like CNN, write books nobody will read, and in the case of McCain and those in the Senate and House…just vote against anything Trump is for….just because. They’re a bunch of little children, and we are seeing them for who they are. In other words… They’re acting like Hillary; sore losers. So, if John Kasich wants to leave the party, then by all means, we hope he does!
