yeah forgot it was Canada BLM there just went and got the link without rewatching... But regardless of the source, the tweets can be seen.Justsit wrote:The video refers to Canada, not US. The source defines itself as "Conservative news and opinion from Ezra Levant and his team of reporters and commentary." it relies on the opinions of one man and his employees and is not exactly an objective source.Cittasanto wrote: if the FBI can take months to sift through the data how can the SPLC in hours? where do they take their data, and how do they do it?
I am aware of the SPLC from them condoning a group that has leaders say horendous things. Look up their views of Black LivesMatter and what the leader of BLM say. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awX_9mC8rX4
but the point is still relevant as they have used chants such as pigs in blankets... which happened just before police officers were shot.
but they do condemn. not condemning a group so open about what they want to happen to cops is condoning, when they spend time condemning hate crimes." The Southern Poverty Law Center https://www.splcenter.org/ is an American nonprofit legal advocacy organization specializing in civil rights and public interest litigation. It is noted for its legal victories against white supremacist groups, its classification of hate groups and other extremist organizations, its legal representation for victims of hate groups, and its educational programs that promote tolerance" [bold is mine]. The source of their data was first person reports from those who experienced the activities reported; since that is one of their normal activities, they are able to tabulate data quickly. They have been working since 1971 for victims of hate in its various forms, and are well-respected in the legal community. AFAIK the do not "condone" any groups.
I am not denying incidents are happening, However, a reported incident does not show much about the incident like why or what brought it about. Also, there are false reports being made, false attributions, and fake stories, do these get included? do see the heavy link which does detail some of these, also do watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42QuXLucH3QFrom the BBC - a responsible news outlet has also reported on the crimes.
