The Southern Poverty Law Center is nothing more than a tool that the left uses to brand others as racists and extremists.

Cruz: Biden ‘Deployed Attack Dogs’ Against Parental Rights Groups
Conservatives in Congress condemned the Biden administration in the wake of the revelation that a high-ranking Department of Education official met with the Southern Poverty Law Center one year before the SPLC added parental rights groups, including Moms for Liberty, to its “hate map” that includes conservatives along with KKK groups.
“Moms for Liberty and the whole parental rights movement is a force to be reckoned with. These patriotic parents turned Virginia red, and the Left is terrified that they will help take our country back in 2024,” Sen. Ted Cruz told The Daily Signal in a written statement Monday.
Cruz’s remarks came after The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project released documents Monday revealing that two SPLC staffers met in 2022 with the Biden administration official in charge of a White House initiative on historically black colleges and universities. (The Daily Signal is The Heritage Foundation’s news outlet.)
“They have a huge target on their back because they are effective,” Cruz said of parental rights groups. “The Left knows that they cannot win a fair fight since their policies are so terrible. Instead of debating on policy, the Biden administration deployed their attack dogs at the Southern Poverty Law Center to smear these parental rights groups by listing them alongside the KKK as hate groups.”
The Texas Republican also shamed the legacy media for failing to cover stories such as this one about the Biden Department of Education’s collaboration with the SPLC.
“I am grateful for [The Daily Signal’s] fantastic work exposing the SPLC for the fraud that it is,” he said. “I challenge the so-called reporters in the corporate media: Have an ounce of honesty and cover this story.”
