SPLC Targets College Conservatives

Toni Airaksinen reports at Campus Reform:

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) now boasts of student-led chapters at more than 100 colleges and universities across the United States.
The SPLC on Campus program, founded in 2011, encourages students to start clubs to advance the SPLC’s agenda by fighting “hate and extremists groups” and promoting an “atmosphere of acceptance and respect” within their campus community.
The organization now claims to have a presence at more than 100 colleges and universities, including the University of Northern Colorado, Florida Atlantic University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and many more, according to a map on its website.
Chapters are encouraged to promote the SPLC’s guidebooks, such as the “Alt-right on Campus: What Students Need to Know,” and host events to fight “bias and bigotry” on campus.
All chapters are also required to agree to a set of terms and conditions to “further the SPLC’s goals by raising awareness of the growth and activities of hate and extremists groups.”

If you’re Christian or a Republican, you’re an “extremist,” according to the SPLC, which now wants to get your kids kicked out of college.
