SPLC: Calling MS-13 murderers, rapists ‘animals’ is ‘racist’ and ‘dehumanizing’

On Monday the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) decided to cozy up to the murderers and rapists of the violent MS-13 gang, telling the White House in a tweet that it’s “racist” and “dehumanizing” for the administration to refer to them as “animals.”

“It is unacceptable for such racist, dehumanizing language to now be repeated 10 times on the White House website in a document that speaks for America,” the group said in a tweet.

This was in response to a press release which began: “Too many innocent Americans have fallen victim to the unthinkable violence of MS-13’s animals.”

Twitchy put this in context by observing that “the same organization that maintains a ‘Hate Map’ is going to defend the dignity of MS-13 gang members.”

Reaction was, well, predictable:



Let that sink in for just a moment.

It’s possible…  Just give them an excuse.

It’s pretty much gotten to the point that if Donald Trump openly spoke against Satan, the left would come out in support of the devil and accuse critics of racism.





One person noted:


You’d think that would go without saying, but we ARE talking about the modern left…

Not all people — just low-information leftists.



That pretty much nails it.

Contributor Jim Simpson, by the way, wrote up a fairly lengthy piece exposing the SPLC, a portion of which can be seen here.
