SPLC profits from “I Am So Sick of White Guys” coloring book

As we have noted uncounted times on this blog, there is no legal or even standard definition for a “hate group.” Even the Southern Poverty Law Center, a company that rakes in hundreds of millions of dollars by selling “hate groups” to Progressives, does not have an actual definition for the term.

Instead, the company cooked up a non-definition that is so broad that anyone could figure out some way to apply it to just about any group they wanted. According to the experts at the SPLC:

“All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.”

If those are the SPLC’s only criteria, “attacking or maligning an entire class of people,” then does it strike anyone else as odd that “the nation’s leading civil rights organization,” (at least when it was still in the civil rights business several years ago) is accepting a cash percentage from the sales of something called the “I Am So Sick of White Guys” coloring book?

 

Sick-of-White-Guys-book

 

“Relax,” say the authors. This isn’t maligning an entire class of people… it’s satire! Get it?

Sure we get it. Try swapping out the descriptor “White” from the title with any other color/ethnicity in the Diversity Rainbow and see how much fun it is. Change “Guys” to “Gals” (Chicks dig it when you call them “gals,” btw) and watch the Feminist fur fly. Try it at home, “I’m so sick of One-legged, African-American LGBTQRSTUV Activists!.” Why, the variations just write themselves. No “hate” here, after all. It’s satire, fer cryin’ out loud!

As the co-authors, who are both evil white guys themselves, remind us “Be open to hearing other perspectives or opinion. And don’t be so defensive.” Spoken like true Progressives. Say anything you please, as long as we permit it.

Want to have a real hoot? Swap out the picture of Putin with one of George Soros holding the strings. The Anti-Defamation League, which does not have a good track record with satire, will be all over you like the yellow-tooth stink on an Antifa bandana. There’s too much money at stake, don’t you know?

And speaking of money, catch the note at the very bottom of the cover stating that ten percent of this ten-dollar treasure will be donated to the SPLC. Thank heavens for that. According to this year’s online tax records, the company came into 2017 with less than $320 million in tax-free, unrestricted cash-on-hand. This boon could be a game changer.

Or could it? Let’s say they can sell 100,000 copies of this adult coloring book. The $10 grand sent to the SPLC would barely buy a single hour of Millionaire Morris Dees’ frequent speaker’s “honoraria,” and only then if your group wasn’t composed of evil white males. Otherwise, “No dough? No Mo.”

Let’s be optimistic, though. As the SPLC well knows, there are millions of people out there who are really, really sick of white males. Let’s say these guys manage to sell ONE MILLION COPIES of their magnum opus. That’s $100,000 to the cash-strapped SPLC, a whole lot of moolah in anybody’s book.

Well, in anybody’s book except the SPLC’s bookkeeper’s book. Last year the SPLC paid third-party telemarketers $2,266,887 donor-dollars to raise only $1,271,287 donor-dollars, for a net loss of $955,600. A lousy hundred grand wouldn’t even scratch the surface of such an incredible deficit. Instead, the SPLC will simply redirect the donations of everyone who gave through the telemarketers, as well as another 10,000 to 40,000 rank-and-file loyal SPLC donors.

At the end of the day, what we have here is a perfect example of “virtue signalling.” The authors are merely piling on to a bandwagon that has seen celebrities and major corporations demonstrating how much they hate “hate” by simply sending a check to the SPLC, and that doesn’t include the millions of new individual donors the company will pick up this year. That’s all you have to do. Send a little cash to a company that already has more money than it will ever spend and you can sleep the sleep of the Righteous.

Too bad so much of that money will go to pay the telemarketers and the six-digit salaries of the SPLC’s all-white Executive Suite. No matter. “Hate” was fought, after all.

The SPLC has no problem whatsoever if you want to bash white males (as long as they are not gay, Jewish, or one of the other more recent protected status groups) as long as you a) fig-leaf it as satire (“Can’t you take a joke?”), and b) cut the SPLC in for a slice of the pie. No hypocrisy here. Move along.

Don’t take our word for it. Go the company’s website and search “coloring book” and see if you can find anything that says “The SPLC refuses to accept money from a group that attacks or maligns an entire class of people.”

That would be bad for business.
