Interesting times ahead for the Southern Poverty Lies Center

No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action.
They've been sliming people and groups for years, and now it's coming around to bite them in the ass.

Translated from politician: "We don't want to actually fix this, we want something we can use as a club on Trump."

Post something the Twidiots don't approve of, you get thrown out; post about killing ICE agents, no problem.

There's a discussion of this by a lawyer here:

Ken White's conclusion is that the SPLC should have won by describing their list as purely opinion rather than fact. Opinions are pretty much immune to defamation suits. What I think he missed in his lawyerly focus is that the best victory the SPLC's opponents could wish for would be for it to claim in court that "The inclusion of a group on this list is just an opinion." They would win the case in court and destroy their public credibility.
