SPLC Cashes in on Las Vegas Massacre

October 4, 2017

As of this writing, it has been three days since the shooting in Las Vegas that left 59 dead and over 500 wounded and what does the “nation’s leading civil rights organization” have to say about the tragedy?

Nothing.

There’s not a single word on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website about the massacre. The only reference to “Paddock” on the site is from 2014 and refers to the traditional animal enclosure used by ranchers and farmers and not the alleged Vegas gunman.

Compare that with at least 52 references to Charlottesville since August 12, including the crass announcement that the company was cashing in on the death of Heather Heyer, as Watching the Watchdogs noted.

Why the silence on the greatest mass murder of Americans in the 21st century? Because the victims were mostly white and were attending a Country music concert. Suffice it to say that there were probably few SPLC donors in the crowd.

Before you reach for your wallet to step into the SPLC’s fundraising breach, note that media sources are reporting that MGM Resorts, the mega-corporation that owns the Mandalay Bay hotel from where the alleged gunman opened fire has stated that:

“The company, [MGM Resorts CEO, Jim Murren] vowed, would match employee donations to: the Southern Poverty Law Center, NAACP, Anti-defamation League, Human Rights Campaign, Council on American Islamic Relations, Asian Pacific American Advocates and the League of United Latin American Citizens.”

Talk about “virtue signaling.” “We couldn’t do anything to prevent a deranged lone-wolf from murdering people, so we’re going to send money to “advocacy groups” that also couldn’t do anything to prevent a deranged lone-wolf from murdering people.”

And so, another multi-million dollar mega-corporation that couldn’t even acknowledge the deaths and woundings of hundreds of white Americans will receive even more millions for its lack of action.

The SPLC’s Morris Dees must be rubbing his hands in glee.
