Valerie Richardson from The Washington Times has reported that some mainstream conservative groups are being lumped in with radical, white nationalist hate groups by CNN. According to Richardson, a CNN website stated: “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” said the CNN wire story headline on Chicago’s WGN-TV website. Brad Dacus, who runs the group Pacific Justice Institute was shocked to find himself on the Southern Poverty Law Centers list of 917 groups on the “hate map”.
Mr. Dacus’ conservative Sacramento-based institute, which specializes in religious-liberty cases, was featured on the CNN list right below the Pacific Coast Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Lest we not forget when this targeting started with a vengeance. Under the Obama administration conservative groups were targeted by the IRS and their goal was to shut them down or deny them a voice. Had the spotlight not been aimed at the illegal activity at the IRS, we the American people would never have known the extent of the underhanded activity going on. Unfortunately, no one paid the consequences for the blatant bias and illegal targeting of specific groups and that is probably one of the reasons that the left has become more emboldened and continues to now “openly” brand all conservatives as “racists, white nationalists, KKK members and neo-nazi’s”!
This has now become a war against “all of the right” in this country. No matter how innocent your group may be, how far removed it is from anything racist, you will be branded by the left and the complicit media as “haters”. After Charlottesville, this mantra has become rabid and now that the left has their bone, they will not let it go until all conservatives are shunned and punished for deeds that they haven’t even done.
It’s ironic that there is less anger from the left toward the ISIS terrorists than there is toward their fellow Americans. If they put as much energy into fighting terror as they did toward fighting conservatism, the world would be a much safer place.
On a positive note: there are millions of us who can see what is happening around us, who can see exactly who and what the leftists are. We also know how to push back and how to watch as the left destroys itself with this ridiculous and bogus “race war”. Their desperation is growing and the only thing they have left is to play the race card which will eventually bring them down. I think they have overplayed their hand.
