‘DEEPLY DISTURBING’: GOP Senators Slam Biden Admin for Using SPLC on ‘Domestic Terrorism’:
Republican senators condemned as “deeply disturbing” the Biden administration’s decision to reach out to the Southern Poverty Law Center for advice in combating the “domestic terror threat.”
“Since January 2021, the Biden administration has consistently attempted to weaponize the federal government against its political opponents,” Sen. Katie Britt, R-Ala., told The Daily Signal in a statement Friday. “That it would turn to the SPLC to do so is disturbing but unfortunately not surprising, given their shared animosity towards religious freedom and parental rights.”
“The present-day SPLC has devolved into a disreputable, deeply unserious organization that dishonestly attempts to silence anyone across America who disagrees with its far-left activist agenda,” Britt added. “That makes it a natural ally and echo chamber for a president who routinely demonizes Americans who simply have different political beliefs and perspectives.”
The Alabama Republican was responding to The Daily Signal’s exclusive report Thursday that SPLC President Margaret Huang bragged in 2021 that the Biden administration had reached out to her organization in its efforts to combat “the domestic terrorism threat.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center puts mainstream conservative and Christian groups on a “hate map” with chapters of the Ku Klux Klan. This bias suggests the Biden administration views conservatives as a threat to domestic tranquility, critics say.
“Instead of targeting law-abiding Americans, this administration should be combating the national security, humanitarian, and economic crisis at the southern border—which gravely threatens the safety of our homeland and the well-being of our communities every single day,” Britt said. “I am proud to be a Christian and a conservative, and I’ll continue to fight back against the Biden administration’s radical agenda.”
Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., also slammed the Biden administration, noting as well its work with American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten. The SPLC has echoed Weingarten’s rhetoric in condemning parental rights groups.
“Since he took office, President Biden’s administration has routinely worked with radical individuals and groups like Randi Weingarten and the SPLC to shape dangerous policy that targets Americans based on their religion [or] political views or simply because they rightly believe they should be involved in their child’s education,” Scott told The Daily Signal in a statement Friday.
“It’s wrong and shows just how far President Biden will go in dangerously using the same tactics to weaponize government against its people that we see in Communist China, Venezuela and Cuba,” the Florida Republican added. “I will not tolerate this political targeting and will use every tool at my disposal in the Senate to hold this administration accountable for these despicable decisions.” --->READ MORE HERE

SPLC director who placed parents’ rights group on ‘hate map’ met with Biden counterterror official: report
The meeting comes after the DOJ instructed the FBI to investigate allegations that frustrated parents were engaging in threats and violence akin to domestic terrorism
According to White House visitor logs recently obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, a Southern Poverty Law Center director who just put several major parents’ rights groups on the SPLC’s "hate map," met with Biden administration counterterrorism officials this year.
The visit happened in the wake of rising calls for the Department of Justice to look into parents’ rights groups and school board meetings to see if there is "domestic terror" activity among those frustrated with what’s being taught in U.S. public schools.
The Free Beacon stated that White House visitor logs have shown that Susan Corke, director of the SPLC’s Intelligence Project met with National Security Council counterterrorism director John Picarelli on January 6 of this year.
Corke, a former U.S. State Department official, also made headlines this week for producing an SPLC report that labeled parents’ rights groups "Moms for Liberty," and "Parents Defending Education," among others as extremist hate groups.
The SPLC’s annual "Year In Hate and Extremism" report officially designated the organizations as "anti-government extremist groups." It also described members of Mom’s For Liberty, saying they can be "spotted at school board meetings across the country wearing shirts and carrying signs that declare, ‘We do NOT CO-PARENT with the GOVERNMENT.’"
The SPLC has been considered one of the top research organizations tracking hate and extremism across the country, working to alert Americans about self-described militias, anti-immigrant groups and hate groups. It has also successfully sued these groups in court.
However, the SPLC has earned a reputation in recent years for branding the left’s political opponents as being extremist or hate groups. --->READ MORE HERE
