Spring 2018 The Social Contract

Since the election of Donald Trump as 45th
president of the United States, the leftist underground
has surfaced in an unprecedented, fullthroated
effort to neutralize his historic victory. This
underground includes violent communist, socialist,
and anarchist street thugs from groups like Refuse
Fascism (the Revolutionary Communist Party),1
(anarchists and anarcho-syndicalists)2
and Black Lives
Matter (socialists).3
But it also includes many Democrat
politicians, judges, and bureaucrats at all levels of
government, for example judges essentially governing
from the bench with unconstitutional restraint orders,
elected officials erecting sanctuary policies in direct
defiance of the federal government, and media willing
to give them all rhetorical cover.
Running interference are groups like the American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Southern Poverty
Law Center (SPLC), who have joined the Council on
American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in an unholy alliance
to attack and silence the Left’s critics. This war on
speech has been going on for a long time, but over the
past 17 months has reached a fever pitch. While we see
Islamic terrorist attacks on Western targets almost daily
now, CAIR literally threatens venues, organizers, and
speakers who discuss the threats from Islamic terrorism
and the Islamic supremacy doctrine of Shariah.4
And while CAIR goes on the warpath, the SPLC
assists by labeling individuals and groups “bigots,”
“racists,” “xenophobes,” “Islamophobes,” “white nationalists,”
and “haters.” The SPLC can claim responsibility
more than any other group for popularizing the “hate”
narrative, now ubiquitous in the popular press.
The SPLC claims to target “right-wing militias,”
“white supremacists,” and other varieties of “far-right
extremists.” It publishes a “Hatewatch” list and an
annual “Year in Hate” publication. Its website includes
a “Hate Map” showing where all these supposed “hate”
groups are located.
But most of the SPLC’s targets are not hateful
or even extreme. Last spring, as GOP members of
Congress practiced for a baseball game in Alexandria,
Virginia, extreme leftist Democrat James Hodgkinson
attempted to gun them down. Rep. Steve Scalise almost
died of his injuries and is still recovering. Hodgkinson,
like so many radical leftists, was filled with irrational
hate toward Republicans based on the provocations of
the SPLC and other extreme left smear shops like Media
Matters and
The Family Research Council (FRC) is a mainstream
conservative Christian organization. The SPLC’s
“hate” list’s focus on the FRC inspired Floyd Corkins, a
homosexual activist, to attempt a mass shooting at FRC’s
headquarters in 2013. Corkins said he was motivated
to “kill as many people as possible,” after he saw the
SPLC’s list, which labeled FRC “anti-gay.”6
remains on the SPLC list.7
Capital Research Center is a Washington, D.C.
think tank focusing on non-profit organizations and
foundations. Center president Scott Walter says, “Hate
is the issue here. When you talk about hate groups,
you’re talking about a group that is a threat because
of its violent tendencies and racism. It’s an outrageous
lie that some mainstream Christian group is a threat in
terms of violence and racism.”8
As the editors point out (see pages 4 and 5 of this
issue), the SPLC recently added the Center for Immigration
Studies (CIS), a highly respected immigration
think tank, to its list. CIS produces fact-based studies
on problems with illegal immigration and our overall
immigration system—which few disagree is in need of
major overhaul. But that fact is irrelevant to the SPLC.

Spring 2018 The Social Contract
For years the SPLC has been at war with any
immigration policy group that advocates any restrictions
on immigration at all. It does not discriminate between
legal and illegal immigrants. They all deserve “justice”
in the eyes of the SPLC.9
SPLC even attacks the Remembrance Project,
which advocates for victims of illegal alien crime. SPLC
claims the Project inflates illegal alien crime statistics, a
claim directly refuted by official government data.10 In
so doing, the SPLC dishonors the hundreds of thousands
of families impacted by the illegal alien crime epidemic,
including tens of thousands killed.* It goes without saying
that with controlled borders, many fewer would be
The SPLC’s targets do not all lean to the right
either. Their sole sin seems to be that they disagree with
the extreme Left or Islamic radicals. Maajid Nawaz, a
moderate British Muslim reformer who was held as a
political prisoner in Egypt, was stunned to learn he had
been listed in SPLC’s 2016 Field Guide to Anti-Muslim
Through the counter-extremism organisation
Quilliam that I founded, I have spent eight
years defending my Muslim communities in
Europe, Pakistan, and beyond from the diktats
of Islamist theocrats. I have also argued
for the liberal reform of Islam today, from
within…. In a monumental failure of comprehension,
the SPLC have conflated my
challenge to Islamist theocracy among my
fellow Muslims with somehow being “antiMuslim.”
The regressive left is now in the
business of issuing fatwas against Muslim
Also included in the anti-Muslim list is Somali
former Muslim, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an author and former
member of the Dutch parliament who speaks out against
Muslim suppression of women, especially the barbaric
practice of female genital mutilation. In SPLC’s description,
it even acknowledges that her friend, filmmaker
Theo van Gogh, was murdered by a Muslim and her
name was pinned to his body with a knife.13 But she’s
the hater?
The SPLC never criticizes any organization of the
Left, no matter how extreme. The SPLC even admits
this, making plain that the “extremist” designation is
specifically related to the political positions staked out
by those it labels. In an interview with NBC’s Chris
Matthews, SPLC spokesman Mark Potok stated:
Well, let me say for starters that our—when we
name groups “hate groups,” that has nothing
to do with any allegation of criminality
or some kind of measure of expected
violence. It’s purely about ideology.14
At a public speaking event, Potok was even more
Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring
hate crimes and so on … I want to say
plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these
groups, to completely destroy them…15
In another notorious example of this bias, National
Review columnist Charles Cooke confronted the SPLC
about the violence of an Ohio Occupy Wall Street group,
noting that, in the name of anarchy, it sought “the wholesale
destruction of Cleveland, Ohio,” and “to blow up
the Republican convention.” The SPLC representative
responded, “They were Anarchists…. We’re not really
set up to cover the extreme Left.”16
Unlike most of its targets, the SPLC is the organization
that genuinely expresses hate. In fact, hatred is its
stock-in-trade. The SPLC’s goal is to identify and discredit,
or even, in Potok’s words “completely destroy”
those organizations and individuals it disagrees with. It
does so by attempting to label them “racist,” “homophobic,”
“Islamophobic,” “xenophobic,” etc.—name your
To reconcile the SPLC’s often contradictory and
usually false narratives, one must understand that its
constant vilification of political enemies is entirely
tactical. The terms “hater,” “bigot”, “racist,” and so
forth are frequently misunderstood as a spontaneous,
visceral reaction to policies the Left opposes. Those
with more political savvy recognize such narratives as
an application of Saul Alinsky’s Rule Number 13: Pick
the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.17
But this rule actually comes from a very specific
tactic first articulated 100 years ago by Vladimir Lenin,
the first leader of the Soviet Communist Party, who said:
We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit,
law-breaking, withholding, and concealing
truth… We can and must write in a language
which sows among the masses hate, revulsion,
and scorn toward those who disagree
with us.
In the Soviet Union under Lenin and Stalin, individuals
so vilified could face a death sentence.19 But
the tactic was urged on party members everywhere, as
suggested by this 1943 Soviet message broadcast to the
world’s communist parties:
*Unpublished data obtained from the Government Accountability

Spring 2018 The Social Contract
Members and front organizations must
continually embarrass, discredit, and degrade
our critics. When obstructionists become
too irritating, label them as fascist or Nazi
or anti-Semitic… constantly associate those
who oppose us with those names that already
have a bad smell. The association will, after
enough repetition, become “fact” in the
public mind.20
Does that not sound like what is going on today?
Does it not sound exactly like what the SPLC does?
Lenin and his Bolsheviks also believed silencing
critics was essential to their cause. He said:
Why should freedom of speech and freedom
of the press be allowed? Why should a government
which is doing what it believes is
right allow itself to be criticized? It would not
allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are
much more fatal things than guns.21
The German Communist Herbert Marcuse further
developed Lenin’s idea in his 1965 essay “Repressive
Tolerance.”22 Marcuse was one of the better-known
members of the so-called Frankfurt School. Founded in
Frankfurt, Germany, in 1923 as the Institute for Social
Research, the school was disbanded when Hitler rose to
power, and its professors—all Jewish Communists—
fled. Most came to America. The Frankfurt School was
reinstituted at Columbia University. Marcuse taught
there before heading to Harvard, Brandeis—where he
was fired for being too radical23—and finally the University
of California, San Diego.24
Marcuse mentored Angela Davis, the black American
Communist who later became involved with the
Black Panthers, first at Brandeis, then at UC San Diego,
which she attended specifically because he was there.25
Davis also attended the reestablished Frankfurt School
in Germany at Marcuse’s suggestion, where she studied
with other Frankfurt School scholars, and remained in
touch with Marcuse throughout. Davis described Marcuse
as having “a profound influence on my life and
Marcuse and his fellow Frankfurt School Marxists
created Critical Theory, an intellectual tool to deconstruct
the West through constant criticism. Today it is
commonly referred to as Cultural Marxism or Political
Correctness, but few are aware of its radical and
truly malevolent source. Echoing the Soviets, Frankfurt
School teaching relentlessly accused Western societies
of being “the world’s greatest repositories of racism,
sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, anti-Semitism, fascism,
and Nazism.”27
Our First Amendment allows for the free exchange
of ideas, even radical ones. Marcuse claimed that despite
this apparent “tolerance,” an oppressive imbalance exists
in Western societies, which he said, “favors and fortifies
the conservation of the status quo of inequality and
discrimination.”28 To correct this imbalance, he followed
Lenin’s lead, suggesting that leftists had a special right
to lie, suppress truth, and engage in violence and lawbreaking
to get their way:
Under the conditions prevailing in this country,
tolerance does not, and cannot, fulfill the
civilizing function attributed to it by the liberal
protagonists of democracy, namely, protection
of dissent… I believe that there is a
“natural right” of resistance for oppressed
and overpowered minorities to use extralegal
means if the legal ones have proved to be
inadequate… If they use violence, they do not
start a new chain of violence but try to break
an established one.29
In the sphere of public debate this meant:
Not “equal” but more representation of the
Left would be equalization of the prevailing
inequality… Given this situation, I suggested
in “Repressive Tolerance” the practice of discriminating
tolerance in an inverse direction,
as a means of shifting the balance between
Right and Left by restraining the liberty of
the Right, thus counteracting the pervasive
inequality of freedom (unequal opportunity
of access to the means of democratic persuasion)
and strengthening the oppressed against
the oppressors…30
Marcuse further described the types of people who
needed to have their freedom curtailed:
[He calls for] the withdrawal of toleration
of speech and assembly from groups and
Herbert Marcuse and Angela Davis
Spring 2018 The Social Contract
movements which promote aggressive policies,
armament, chauvinism, discrimination
on the grounds of race and religion, or which
oppose the extension of public services, social
security, medical care, etc.31
In Marcuse’s formulation anyone who criticizes,
for example, programs like Social Security or Medicaid,
is by definition a racist, sexist, etc. and should have
his/her voice and activities silenced. Do “aggressive
policies” include anarchist violence? As with the SPLC,
apparently not. Read what he says about education:
Moreover, the restoration of freedom of
thought may necessitate new and rigid
restrictions on teachings and practices
in the educational institutions which, by
their very methods and concepts, serve to
enclose the mind within the established
universe of discourse and behavior—thereby
precluding a priori a rational evaluation of
the alternatives.32
Doesn’t this sound like what is happening in education
today? However, leftist ideas have never been
excluded from discussion in schools and colleges. To the
contrary, the educational establishment has been marinating
in extreme Left ideology for decades, and while
tuition costs skyrocket, liberal arts students emerge from
college with fewer and fewer skills to justify it.
Marcuse’s “Repressive Tolerance” was read widely
and his tactics readily adopted by the Left, including
the SPLC, for which Marcuse’s formulation became
its raison d’etre. Marcuse directly influenced the SPLC
through his collaboration with SPLC co-founder and
lifelong radical Socialist (and probable Communist),
Julian Bond.33 They got to know each other through
work on the National Conference for New Politics,
an event Bond helped organize.34 Late Senator James
Eastland described the NCNP as “working hand-inglove
with the Communist Party” to foment “revolution
in the United States.”35 In 1976 Bond and Marcuse were
also co-founders of the radical journal In These Times.
In 1965 Bond was vice-chairman of the National
Committee Against Repressive Legislation, a Communist
Party USA front.37 In 1970, Bond joined the Democratic
Socialist Organizing Committee, which ultimately
became the Democratic Socialists of America.38 He also
co-founded the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee
(SNCC),39 later led by black separatists Stokely
Carmichael and H. Rap Brown, who advocated guerrilla
warfare in the U.S.40 Between 1998 and 2010, Bond was
also chairman of the board of the NAACP.41
Though Bond was elected to the Georgia legislature,
the body refused to seat him three times because of his
agitation against the Vietnam War.42 In response, Bond
called on communist lawyer Leonard Boudin to represent
him. Boudin’s other clients included the government of
Fidel Castro, Soviet agent of influence Paul Robeson,
and Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg. Boudin’s
daughter, Kathy, was a Weather Underground terrorist
who served 25 years for her participation in the 1981
Brinks robbery that left two policemen and one Brinks
guard dead.43 Kathy’s son, Chesa Boudin, was adopted by
Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine
Dohrn while Kathy was in prison. Chesa has spent time
in Venezuela, and consulted Communist leader Hugo
Chavez to the end of Chavez’s life.44
Bond and Marcuse also shared an interest in
Marcuse’s protégé Angela Davis. Davis was a member
of Bond’s SNCC.45 When she was jailed for her alleged
role in the Black Panther murder of a California judge,
she recruited attorney Howard Moore, Bond’s brotherin-law,
who had also helped represent Bond in his battle
to be seated with the Georgia legislature.46 In 1982,
Davis and other members of the Communist Party
USA founded the National Alliance Against Racist and
Political Repression, which Bond endorsed.47 Bond later
wrote the foreword to Davis’ book, If They Come in the
Morning: Voices of Resistance.
Spring 2018 The Social Contract
The SPLC has many other connections to communism
and communists as well. Mark Potok and
the SPLC have been featured numerous times in the
Communist Party news magazine People’s World. Quoted
in a 2009 article, Mark Potok charged that the Center for
Immigration Studies (CIS), the Federation for American
Immigration Reform (FAIR), and Numbers USA—which
he claimed were all the brainchildren of “an extreme white
nationalist and anti-immigrant culprit”—had caused
the “demise of comprehensive immigration reform in
2007.”49 Was that a crime? Apparently so, according
to Potok. In another article, Morris Dees was cited as
warning the U.S. Congress that neo-Nazi groups were
infiltrating the military, which then could be inadvertently
training future would-be domestic terrorists.50
In 2011, Potok authored a People’s World article,
“Coming to Terms with the Confederacy,” in which he
criticized events that recognize Confederate history.51
When questioned by a reporter about the appropriateness
of writing for the communists, Potok claimed ignorance
of the article’s placement, saying instead that they
sometimes wrote for an organization called Otherwords,
which was responsible for article placement.52
Otherwords, however, is a project of the Institute for
Policy Studies, an extreme left Washington, D.C. think
tank set up with monies provided by Samuel Rubin,
creator of Faberge perfumes and a Soviet COMINTERN
(Communist International) agent.53 The SPLC is listed
as an Otherwords Partner on its website.54
Former SPLC board member James Rucker55
co-founded Color of Change in 2005 with self-described
communist Van Jones. Before that, Rucker was grassroots
organizing director at the Soros-funded left-wing activist
In short, the SPLC has a sordid history of collaborating
with and being inspired and even led by American
Communists, and has employed Communist vilification
techniques to intimidate and silence political opponents.
The SPLC has caused its targets to be discredited in the
public eye, lose jobs, be refused speaking engagements,
and other economic damages, and has even inspired
attempted mass murder. SPLC’s tactics are a type of
psychological terrorism.
The SPLC, in collusion with an extreme Left,
anti-American press, radical Islamists, and politicians
motivated by ideology, money, fear, or some combination,
has elevated defamatory smear tactics to high art. In so
doing it has debased the political dialogue to little more
than infantile, elementary school level, name-calling—
but weaponized it to destroy its enemies. The SPLC is
the consummate definition of a hate group.
It is a national disgrace. But the most shameful
aspect of its transparent behavior is that the political class
has given it legitimacy, simply by refusing to call it what
it is. And for that reason, it has become dangerous. Left
unchallenged, its lies become truth, and encourage even
more outrageous lies and disinformation. That in turn
allows its practitioners to believe they can get away with
anything. They flout laws and are becoming ever more
aggressive and brutish in their oppression of political
enemies. We see this today with the leftist brownshirts,
who mask their identity and then attack Trump supporters
and others with chains, bats, and mace. Will guns be next?
Mark Potok, former director of the SPLC’s “Intelligence Project,” said on CSPAN’s “Washington Journal,” April 6, 2010,
that “there isn’t much of an extreme Left” in the U.S. In June 2006, he gave an interview to In 2011,
People’s World published an article by Potok. Presumably Potok considers avowed Trotskyite socialists and Communist
Party publications as part of the political mainstream.
Spring 2018 The Social Contract
This is a predictable path, as witnessed too
many times already in the past century, with the Nazi
extermination of the Jews and communist mass murder
that has killed more citizens in times of peace than have
died in all the wars in history combined.
This path is charted in the 10 stages of genocide.57
Don’t laugh. We are currently between stages 3 and 4,
where institutions like the SPLC seek to increasingly
dehumanize their political foes:
At this stage, hate propaganda in print and on
hate radios is used to vilify the victim group.58
Dehumanization overcomes the normal
human revulsion against murder.59
And while conservatives are furiously attacked for
the most circumspect criticism of the Left, at the same
time we see leftists routinely advocating murder. Kathy
Griffin’s infamous photo, showing her holding Trump’s
severed head, is only one example. This is the impulse of
unrestrained, compulsive despots. They define themselves
by their behavior.
The thugs of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Refuse
Fascism, CAIR, and other left-wing militants, are the
ugly face. But behind them are the propaganda mills that
give them their justification. More than any other group,
the SPLC is devoted to this single purpose. What happens
if this unholy alliance gains unchallenged power?
Unchallenged barbarity.
Some groups are finally hitting back. Coral Ridge
Ministries is suing the SPLC for defamation, claiming
that it falsely labeled Coral Ridge as a “hate” group,
simply because its beliefs on homosexuality and gay
marriage are biblically based. “It’s ridiculous for the
SPLC to falsely tag evangelical Christian ministries
as ‘hate groups’ simply for upholding the 2,000-yearold
Christian consensus on marriage and sexuality,”
Ministries spokesman John Rabe said.60
The Southern Poverty Law Center is an extreme
Left, communist-inspired, if not communist-led,
influence operation designed to rationalize demonizing
and silencing critics of the far Left’s agenda for America.
This agenda is no less than a fundamental transformation
of our Constitutional Republic into a Soviet-style, oneparty
Socialist state. The SPLC’s tax-exempt status should
be immediately revoked, its assets seized under RICO
statutes, and its leaders investigated for participating in
a continuing criminal enterprise to subvert America. ■
