Unreal! How much longer are we going to let them get away with this crap? Several mainstream media outlets are taking heat, including ABC, NBC, CNN, and more, for calling the Alliance Defending Freedom, a religious group, a hate group.
As written for Fox News by Corrine Weaver:
Apparently if you defend the 1st Amendment, you are guilty of hate speech. That’s the argument put forth by several news outlets — ABC, NBC, CNN — and even Teen Vogue.
On Tuesday night, June 11, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech to the members of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a religious freedom group. The ADF is assisting the Supreme Court case involving Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who refused to bake a gay wedding cake.
Major networks are enraged. In headlines for both ABC and NBC, they called the ADF an “anti-LGBT hate group.” On what would the networks base that characterization? It’s the hysterical assessment of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
SPLC is best known for being the left-wing group that targets other groups and individuals in the public eye for “hate speech” — especially conservatives and Christian groups.
Even POLITICO recently asked whether or not the group has pushed its civil rights credibility too far. Writer Ben Schreckinger actually called the founder of the SPLC “a little Trumpian,” the ultimate liberal insult. HBO talk show host Bill Maher admitted recently that he would join in a crowd-funded lawsuit against SPLC, according to the Washington Examiner.
