Apple CEO Tim Cook pledged to donate $2 million to leftist groups in a memo condemning “racism and bigotry” following the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend.
The tech company will donate $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and another $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL); both being groups that have targeted conservative figures, publications and groups for years.
“What occurred in Charlottesville has no place in our country,” Cook wrote in the memo. “Hate is a cancer, and left unchecked it destroys everything in its path. It scars and last generations.”
Despite clear evidence of violence initiated by the left, such as the bats, pepper spray and black masks, Cook insisted that their violence was justified.
“I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights. Equating the two runs counter to our ideals as Americans,” he wrote.
Both the SPLC and ADL seemingly consider “hate” to be any point of view that disagrees with their leftist ideology, evidenced by past actions of both groups against conservatives and Republicans in the last few years.
Last December, the SPLC published a “Terror of the Right” list, which bizarrely included the Black Lives Matter-inspired murders of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge as well as the Orlando Pulse Nightclub attack that left 49 dead.
And preceding the election in November, the ADL added Pepe the Frog – a popular internet meme – to their Hate Symbol Database, which includes the swastika, SS lightning bolts, and burning cross, after the Hillary Clinton campaign and the corporate media claimed it was a symbol of white supremacy following the widespread proliferation of pro-Trump Pepe memes during the presidential race.
