They’re Coming For Us

For years now, the hate-filled Leftist propaganda group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has defamed my American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), one of the foremost organizations fighting to preserve freedom in America today, as a “hate group.” The smear has been irritating, but ultimately ineffective in stopping our work. Now, however, House Democrats are determined to change that: the Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee has called for stripping tax-exempt status from 60 “hate groups,” including AFDI.

They cannot refute us. They cannot defeat us. They cannot silence us. So they’re determined to destroy us.

This is just the culmination of a systematic attempt to decimate all of our fundraising opportunities, so that we simply wither and die from lack of resources. Because of the SPLC’s libel, we have been banned from Google AdSense, banned from Facebook, and banned from Amazon Smile, which devotes some of Amazon’s proceeds to the charity of your choice, unless it is a charity that is hated by the Left.

That’s not all. While all this has been going on, the SPLC’s stooges in the establishment media have eagerly smeared our good names in the public square. By calling us “hate group leaders,” “bigots” and the like, they have destroyed our reputations, so that good, patriotic but uninformed Americans people are afraid to be associated with us, much less to give to us.

These massive hate machines such as the SPLC, Media Matters, the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others have tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of dollars to deploy to spread their lies and defamation. And now the House Democrats are working with these unsavory groups that are using their enormous wealth to target even our smallest contributions, taking away our tax-exempt status so that small contributors can’t even get a modicum of tax relief as they support our efforts. The Democrats are hoping to drive us to ruin.


As if this could stop us. As if that could stop our faith, our fight, or the inevitability of our victory. We are going to fight this, and we are going to win.


But now more than ever, we need your help. We need people with courage, and with a determination to save America as the world’s beacon of freedom. We need patriots who are willing to sacrifice to preserve our freedoms for our children and our children’s children. We need you.


The crisis is more severe than ever. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Even if your donation is only $50 or $75, it will help us in our efforts against authoritarianism and Sharia. No one but AFDI is taking the fight to the enemies of freedom, challenging their steady encroachments on free speech and free expression.
