Banned (Liberty Counsel)

Silicon Valley tech giants, aka the “Internet Cartel,” are conspiring to censor and ban conservative businesses, groups, and people they deem to be engaging in “hate.” Liberty Counsel is fighting back.

Yesterday, it was reported that Facebook permanently banned Alex Jones’ InfoWars posts for undisclosed “hate speech” on the same day that Apple began removing Jones’ podcasts.

The Gateway Pundit is reporting that their “June study of top conservative news outlets found that Facebook has eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.”

+ + The SPLC’s “Hate group” designation is a key component of this censorship.

These latest reports of the cartel’s malicious targeting comes following the Daily Caller’s disturbing disclosure that Silicon Valley titans Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Twitter are now all employing the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hate Group” list in their censorship and/or suppression of conservative organizations!

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is engaged in a two-pronged strategy to destroy conservative groups. At the center of the strategy are direct economic assaults on organizations like Liberty Counsel by pressuring major companies into blacklisting them. We even found a “smoking gun” letter from Morris Dees, the Founder and Chief Trial Counsel for the SPLC, in which he outlines the strategy. According to Dees:

“Right now, [the SPLC is] cutting off hate groups from sources of financing by pushing digital companies like Amazon not to allow hate groups to use their services.”

Liberty Counsel is among the organizations maliciously labeled by the SPLC as a “hate group” and therefore have been banned from the Amazon Smile fundraising program that directs funds to charitable organizations. Amazon Smile supports nearly 1 million charities, but not Liberty Counsel. The SPLC has also dragged Liberty Counsel into a very costly lawsuit that has already dragged on for months with no end in sight.

+ + We are fighting back!

Liberty Counsel has joined other leaders and organizations in urging all reputable news organizations, government agencies, corporations, and social media groups to immediately stop citing the Southern Poverty Law Center’s discredited and dangerous propaganda as a reliable source.

We continue to aggressively fight back against the SPLC’s blatant efforts to defame us in the public square! And, Liberty Counsel’s litigation team remains deeply engaged in our effort to turn back the assaults against us and others that are being led by the SPLC’s legal team.

Now, we need your support to successfully turn the tide! Can I count on your help this week to raise $20,000 so we can ramp up our fight against the SPLC’s attack and continue other important litigation?

Not listed with the four Left-leaning Internet organizations is GuideStar, a major provider of information on non-profit organizations.

GuideStar also added an SPLC “Hate Group” identifier on our profile in their publication.

We believe their strategy was in lockstep with the SPLC’s call for “cutting off hate groups from sources of financing.

Right now Liberty Counsel’s legal engagement against GuideStar is going on at the same time as a difficult and costly legal attack on Liberty Counsel in which SPLC lawyers are serving as lead counsel. And, we are fighting back against the SPLC’s blatant efforts to defame us in the public square!

We simply cannot allow anti-faith and anti-family bullies to demean, discredit, and silence us! We must aggressively fight back. The spread of the SPLC’s outrageous “Hate” designation on the Internet and other venues must be stopped!

But I cannot meet these dangerous threats to every American’s religious liberties without your help.

P.S. I simply will not allow the SPLC or any anti-faith, anti-family group to demean or attack pro-faith, pro-family individuals and organizations. But I need your help to stand against the SPLC and the Silicon Valley bullies. Thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration!
