SPLC Refuses to Designate Antifa a Hate Group, But Does For a Church and Singing Nuns

Well, folks, Richard Cohen, the president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, told the Washington Examiner that it wouldn’t be designating Antifa a hate group.  To do so would would be a “wrongheaded” move, according to Cohen.

Yeah, I suppose it doesn’t matter that Antifa beats conservatives, Trump supporters and anyone they disagree with with bats, bars, bike locks and bricks, but hey…what do I know?

Yet, interestingly enough, the SPLC has classified a Christian Church as a hate group, and as a matter of fact, is currently being sued for it.

Oh, and the SPLC also put the Spokane Singing Nuns on their hate list, too.

So, yeah.  Between a Christian Church, some singing nuns, and Antifa terrorists, I can totally see why the latter wouldn’t make their hate list, can’t you?
According to The Washington Examiner:

“We oppose these groups and what they’re trying to do. We just don’t think anyone should be able to censor someone else’s speech,” Cohen said, echoing and endorsing recent statements from progressive scholar Noam Chomsky.

“We think they are contributing to the problem we are seeing,” Cohen said. “We think it’s likely to lead to other forms of retaliation. In Berkeley, antifa showed up and shut down speeches. The next time the white supremacists brought the Oath Keepers with them, they brought their own army.”

He said, however, the SPLC won’t label antifa a “hate group” because adherents do not discriminate against people on the basis of race, sexual orientation or other classes protected by antidiscrimination laws, such as religion.

I suppose the SPLC has not seen the images below, or if it has, is blatantly ignoring them:

Meet this young Trump supporter, who was followed and cold-cocked and left bleeding for carrying a Trump sign.

Meet this woman, who was cornered by a mob of Mexican nationalist chanting “F*ck you!,” who was spat on, and who was beaned in the face with raw eggs.

Meet this black Muslim who chased down and tackled a young Trump supporter with his thug buddies, and later bragged about it on Twitter.

Yeah, doesn’t look like hate now, does it SPLC? Unbelievable.
