George Clooney Sends Anti-Conservative Southern Poverty Law Center $1 Million

As if ruining Batman wasn't enough.

After seeing the violence that erupted in Charlottesville earlier this month, George and Amal Clooney dug through their change jars and scraped together a $1 million donation for the Southern Poverty Law Center to join forces in tracking down hate groups around the country, The Wrap reported.

Now, the SPLC has an interesting way of designating hate groups. Basically, any right-leaning or Christian organization will be labeled a hate group if it, say, speaks out against the dangers of Islam or opposes same-sex marriage. In fact, our very own David Horowitz Freedom Center is listed among the over 900 “hate groups” in the United States. CNN recently published an SPLC map identifying the locations of these so-called hate groups; the same map used by violent leftists to plot attacks against conservative and Christian organizations.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Clooneys said:

We are proud to support the Southern Poverty Law Center in its efforts to prevent violent extremism in the United States. What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate.

In 2016, Clooney, along with his wife, an international human rights lawyer, launched The Clooney Foundation for Justice “to advance justice in courtrooms, classrooms and communities around the world,” The Wrap noted. The donation to the SPLC was made through their foundation.

The truth that is lost on the Clooneys is that the real hate group is the SPLC which doesn’t just point out legitimate hate groups, but smears conservatives and libertarians, labeling them as Islamophobic, homophobic, and anti-immigrant, and unfairly putting them on par with the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis. And now with his generous donation, Clooney is complicit in the unwarranted targeting of innocent organizations.
