As Twitchy told you last week, YouTube has tapped the Southern Poverty Law Center to help flag “extremist” content. That decision was risible enough on its face, given the SPLC’s overwhelming bias against conservatives and conservative groups. But in light of what’s come out about Women’s March leaders’ friendship with and support for anti-Semitic, homophobic hatemonger Louis Farrakhan, the SPLC’s credibility as an arbiter of what constitutes extremism or hate speech.
Even in the earliest days of the Women’s March, they’ve always been able to count on the SPLC’s support:

Because civil rights!
Self-proclaimed "anti-hate" organization stands with hate. https://t.co/UcXA9nk2XW

The same #WomensMarch who has leaders cozying up to rabid anti-Semite Louis Farrahkan?

I’m wondering if the left-wingers at the SPLC still “stand in solidarity,” now that it’s publicly known that the Women’s March organizers are Farrakhan loving anti-semites. 🤔 https://t.co/XAeXxDbppF

Denouncing the Women’s March would require a level of introspection and self-awareness that the SPLC just doesn’t have.

Maybe you should get your civil rights credentials checked since you're aligning with anti-Semites.

This is what losing all credibility looks like. #Antisemitism
