SPLC still hyping fake Scalise speech hoax six days later


On the morning of December 30th, the SPLC published a fake story about Steve Scalise.

They took an existing fake story, that US Congressman attended a David Duke conference in 2002. Then they claimed Steve Scalise “gave a speech to a well-known group of white supremacists and neo-Nazis” at the event.

The SPLC stated that Steve Scalise was lying when he told reporters he had not attended the event.

The SPLC has increasingly relied on outright hoaxes to justify it’s existence. Hyping paid actors like Hal Turner to invent a fictional Neo-Nazi movement that doesn’t exist. Hyping “neo-nazi skinhead gangs” that haven’t been around since the 80s. Giving a white ex-con $35k in free laser tattoo removal to make vague, non-specific claims about alleged white on black mob violence, for which there is no evidence it ever took place.

SPLC has even resorted to “false flag” racial hatred. SPLC employee Keegan Hanks went to a demonstration by the League of the South in Georgia. Hanks pointed at a group of black people walking down the street and referred to them using racial slurs. Then he went back to SPLC headquarters and wrote an article claiming someone had used a racial slur at the event. Hanks was the only person to use a racial slur.

The SPLC published their hoax claim about Steve Scalise on the morning of December 30th. By the evening of December 30th, the mainline media in Louisiana was admitting the whole Steve Scalise/David Duke claim was a hoax. Scalise never attended a conference for David Duke.

Now, six days after the media admitted it was all made up, the SPLC is still pushing the hoax on their website. They haven’t retracted any of their fake libelous claims about Steve Scalise.

Today the SPLC Blog is a link to a story from the extreme left-wing Think Progress, that repeats some of the SPLC’s claims. Except the Think Progress article was also written on December 30th. This is a desperate attempt by the SPLC to try to make their hoax still appear credible to their far-left supporters.
