Southern Poverty Law Center Apologizes and Pays Out $3.75 Million to Drop Defamation Lawsuit

June 19, 2018 Fox News 1

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) claims to combat hate, racism, and bigotry, but it has a history of listing groups that it disagrees with as ‘hate’ groups. The SPLC agreed to apologize and pay $3.75 million after it accused Maajid Nawaz and his group that counters extremism, Quilliam, of being anti-Muslim. Nawaz has dropped his threatened lawsuit alleging defamation by the SPLC. The SPLC has gained unprecedented power over censorship since it partnered with Google, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter.
