The Southern Poverty Law Center asserts that President Trump, law enforcement and Kyle Rittenhouse are to blame for the violence that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin last month. This, despite the fact that violence has greatly diminished since the President sent the National Guard to the embattled town. By contrast, the SPLC spoke favorably of Antifa and group called “Movement for Black Lives,” a communist-tied coalition deeply involved in the activism across the country.
The SPLC doubled down on the ridiculous, demonstrably false premise that black Americans are being slaughtered by police officers, and that the motivation is racism. Instead, the SPLC blames “far right actors” for violence such as Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old teenager who by all accounts defended himself during the chaos, resulting in the death of two Antifa rioters Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.
The SPLC also laughably claimed that there should be “a de-escalation of law enforcement tactics nationwide” in order to stop violence.
SPLC on Antifa and the Communist-Tied ‘Movement for Black Lives‘
The SPLC repeatedly cited an organization responsible for much of the activism in America. The SPLC is trying to distance the “coalition group” named the “Movement for Black Lives” from the violence, claiming that the “random destruction, opportunistic theft and righteous anger at police violence” are “separate and distinct from the Movement for Black Lives.”
But research from author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon contradicts the narrative that the Movement for Black Lives is peaceful. According to his research, the group is infested with communists who want to destroy America.
The SPLC engages in mental gymnastics over Antifa, saying that there is “a far-right preoccupation” over their violent tactics. The SPLC downplayed Antifa’s clear involvement in the rioting over the past few months, stating that “the threat of antifa has been a favorite stalking horse of white nationalist groups for years.”
No More Violence in Kenosha
Despite the SPLC’s assertions that law enforcement is somehow responsible for riots across America, the violence in Kenosha has decreased immeasurably since August 26th, when President Donald Trump sent in the National Guard after hard left Governor Tony Evers finally listened to the pleas of the citizens.
In fact, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department posted a Media Release on Thursday which stated in part:
“As of today September 3rd, 2020 Kenosha County has gone 8 days and nights with relatively peaceful activity.”
What stopped the violence if not the reinforcements sent by President Trump?
The Southern Poverty Law Center despite being highly partisan, are still cited regularly by the left-wing media, are used to deplatform conservative groups they deem to be hateful, and are actively indoctrinating children.
