Biden’s Department of Defense reportedly will partner with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League in order to target “extremism” within its ranks.
According to a memo released by Jack Posobiec, the Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG) will partner with various left-wing groups in an attempt to “fight” extremism.
“The Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG) would like to partner with experts on counter extremism and counter terrorism to better understand the problem and inform the 90-day report for the Secretary of Defense,” said the memo. “These experts may come from advocacy groups, academia, and other areas that contribute to the fight against extremism.”
According to the memo, “advocacy groups” include the NAACP, the ACLU, the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism, and Human Rights First. The Department of Defense will also work with “experts” from the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Anti-Defamation League.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has a history of defaming individuals. In 2018, The SPLC settled with Maajid Nawaz and the Quilliam Foundation for defaming them as “anti-Muslim extremists.” The SPLC posted an apology and paid Nawaz over $3 million.
In 2013, a mass shooter, inspired by the SPLC, committed a mass shooting at the Family Research Council.
“Corkins — who had chosen the research council as his target after finding it listed as an anti-gay group on the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center — had planned to stride into the building and open fire on the people inside in an effort to kill as many as possible, he told investigators, according to the court documents,” said CNN.
