The Southern Poverty Law Center is now blasting Christina Hoff Sommers, otherwise known as the “Factual Feminist,” for enabling “male supremacists.”
The SPLC’s “extremist file” on “Male Supremacy” hate groups lists those men known as “Men’s Rights Activists,” whom SPLC claims have been emboldened by the likes of anti-feminist women.
“Women, too, have helped give the men’s rights movement a veneer of even-handedness,” SPLC reports. “Prominent MRAs [Men’s Rights Activists] also include anti-feminist female voices, such as popular Canadian YouTube personality Karen Straughan, American psychologist Helen Smith, and the former head of a domestic-violence shelter for women, the British Erin Pizzey.”
Apparently, SPLC believes that Christina Hoff Sommers debunking the gender wage gap, warning that #MeToo could turn into a witch hunt, and criticizing the culture of microaggressions, lends legitimacy to “male supremacy.”
The SPLC has become a parody of itself in recent years, having placed presidential candidates like Ben Carson alongside white supremacists. It also places conservative, pro-family organizations like the Family Research Council alongside utterly hateful groups like the Ku Klux Klan. More from PJ Media:
The group has made numerous embarrassing mistakes on these issues. Its “hate map” marked the innocent town of Amana Colonies as the location of the white supremacist website Daily Stormer. A similar SPLC map plotting Confederate monuments listed elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. The organization had to remove an elementary school from this list after learning the school was not named after a Confederate general, but a stone wall.
Leftists still regard the SPLC as a credible source on hate, with companies like Apple and J.P. Morgan pledging their support with big donations. CNN, ABC, and NBC have also cited SPLC in their news coverage.
