House Dems Target Christian ‘Hate Groups’ Claiming “Vile… Division”

Using information gleaned from the Southern Poverty Law Center, an alt-leftist organization that labels many Christian organization as “hate groups,” the democrat controlled Ways and Means committee is trying to strip them of their tax exempt status.

Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee are busy… busy trying to eliminate that tax exempt status of more than 60 supposed ‘hate groups,’ many of which are simply evangelical organizations that support Biblical principles and some are advocate groups designed to protect the First Amendment rights of Christians.

(5/5): These remarks are vile and only work to perpetuate hate crimes and stir division. There is no reason the U.S. government should continue to subsidize groups like these – Ways & Means Dems are shining a light on this issue today.

Most of the groups named in the targeted campaign have been identified as ‘hate groups’ by the suspect Southern Poverty Law Center, itself an extreme leftist organization.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Some of the bigger organizations on the list include the fundamentalist Protestant group American Family Association, which opposes gay rights, the anti-immigration organization Federation for American Immigration Reform, the conservative think tank the Center for Security Policy, and the socially conservative group the Family Research Council.

The groups were designated as “hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that itself is controversial and whose founder was fired this year for misconduct.

The Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee held a hearing Thursday focused on “How The Tax Code Subsidizes Hate,” at which Democrats said they were concerned about the government subsidizing groups that millions of Americans would find abhorrent and Republicans said they feared that First Amendment rights could be infringed ending some groups’ tax-exempt status.

The subcommittee heard from multiple victims of mass shootings, who shared their stories and asked the congressmen to take legislative action to eliminate the tax benefits given to nonprofit groups that may proliferate hate and discrimination.

No legislation has been proposed at the moment.

However, curiously absent from the list is antifa and other alt-left groups. Check out the ones they’re targeting:
