Hyatt Hotels follows the lead of the Southern Poverty Law Center to silence speech they don’t like

Hyatt Hotels has announced they will no longer rent conference space to what they call “hate groups.”

Hyatt-Hotel-logo

They obviously were pressured by a Muslim advocacy group , surely backed by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” list.

The expanding efforts to silence speech, such as on social media today and where venues (like Hyatt Hotels) refuse to allow people to gather to discuss pressing issues of the day, is the sort of thing the founding fathers feared.

They knew that venting ones views verbally/openly and non-violently in public and often through gatherings of like minded people was an important pressure release valve of sorts.

When people are driven to meet secretly and underground is when real rebellion is fomented.

Originally from the LA Times, but here at the Guam Daily:

Hyatt won’t rent to hate groups

Hyatt Hotels Corp., one of the nation’s largest hotel companies, announced it will no longer host hate groups at its nearly 800 properties, a move that was praised by a Muslim advocacy group.

Mark Hoplamazian, CEO of the hotel company, released a memo to employees Thursday, explaining the new anti-hate policy for Hyatt Hotels Corp.

The hotel company declined to release the memo Friday but instead issued a statement saying: “Hyatt will no longer allow hate groups, those who primarily seek to disparage or demean a specific group of people, to host meetings or events at our hotels.”

Muslim Advocates, an Oakland-based civil rights advocacy group that has been pressing hotel companies to take similar steps against hate groups, called the decision a victory.

“Hyatt’s announcement is a welcome one for consumers who want their hotels to be safe spaces to relax and be themselves free from hostility and discrimination,” said Scott Simpson, public advocacy director for Muslim Advocates.

The Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Virginia hosted a group in September called ACT for America, which describes itself as an organization dedicated to educating and training Americans to “help prevent criminal activity and terrorism.”

But Muslim Advocates accuses ACT for America of being a “white supremacist-aligned anti-Muslim hate group.” Muslim Advocates has pressed Hyatt and other hotel companies to refuse to rent to ACT for America.

[….]

It was not clear from Hyatt’s statement how the hotel company planned to determine which groups promote hate, but it added: “This is a complex and emotional issue, but what we’ve concluded is that we need to commit to a higher level of vetting such that groups using hate speech, primarily seeking to disparage or demean a particular group, are not welcome in our hotels.”

Hint from the story about who might be doing the vetting for Hyatt Hotels….

ACT for America could not be reached for comment but in a news release issued Friday in response to similar accusations by the Southern Poverty Law Center….

Yesterday when I wrote about Chobani Yogurt CEO, Turkish immigrant Hamdi Ulukaya, putting together many global corporations who support and advocate for moving the third world to the first world, I didn’t see Hyatt Hotels on his list yet, but I bet it will soon be there.

By the way, the so-called hospitality industry, like the meatpacking industry, is one of the leading advocates for more cheap LEGAL refugee labor.

Others working with Ulukaya (Chobani Yogurt) you should take note of are: airbnb, Hilton Hotels, Starbucks, Twitter, Facebook, UPS, and TripAdvisor to name a few.

I tell my friends not to buy Chobani Yogurt, and….

…it should be pretty easy to find other hotels that aren’t working to silence speech. What the heck there are lots of coffee shops, but getting off of Facebook and Twitter will be hard and that is something I am seriously considering.  What do you think?

LOL! The way things are going we might be reaching each other via snail mail soon! (My PO Box is in the lefthand side bar).

Southern Poverty Law Center working to advance the establishment of Sharia Law in US

That is about all one can conclude when you see the great lengths the SPLC is going to in one state—Idaho—to stop any legislation (through intimidation) that would confirm that in America, US law is the law.

 

shariah_dearborn_michigan_fb
The SPLC works for Sharia law supremacy.  What else can you conclude from their support of it in the US.

 

I have other things to get to, but I want you to see the SPLC tactics on full display here at their ‘Hate Watch’ web page.

Any of us wishing to block the establishment of Sharia Law in America are haters, so get used to it, stand proud against those, led by the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR and the SPLC, who wish to see it established in America!

Jihad expert Robert Spencer poisoned by Leftist in Iceland

Editor’s note:  Before I get to Spencer’s harrowing story, for those who have asked, just a note that if I am absent from the computer these days as I was on most of Mother’s Day and yesterday there could be several reasons.  On Mother’s Day I enjoyed myself! Then yesterday, I had internet connection issues.  I’ve had several computer issues lately (who knows what is going on there!).  And, finally, spring-time on the farm=work!

“I should have seen it coming.”

Robert Spencer

Most of you know Robert Spencer who has been blogging since 2003 at Jihad Watch.  He is an expert on Islam and a best-selling author on the subject.  In 2007, I liked his ‘Watch’ so much that it is the reason that this blog also uses the word watch in its title!

We have entered a new level in the war for the survival of Western Civilization.  I think all of you can feel it.

Spencer’s experience, unhappy for him, is fortuitous in many ways for all of us willing to speak about dangerous times ahead. The international Left has moved to a new level to silence speech they don’t like—they are obviously willing to go so far as to kill to silence those who oppose their political and cultural views!

Here at Frontpage magazine Spencer tells readers what happened after he spoke to an audience of 500 “brave Icelanders.” Hat tip: Cathy

Last Thursday, I gave a lecture on the jihad threat at the Grand Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland. Shortly thereafter, a young Icelandic Leftist registered his disapproval of what I said by poisoning me.

Robert Spencer

It happened after the event, when my security chief, the organizers of the event, and Jihad Watch writer Christine Williams, who had also been invited to speak, went with me to a local restaurant to celebrate the success of the evening.

At this crowded Reykjavik establishment, I was quickly recognized. A young Icelander called me by name, shook my hand, and said he was a big fan. Shortly after that, another citizen of that famously genteel and courteous land also called me by name, shook my hand, and said “F**k you.”

We took that marvelous Icelandic greeting as a cue to leave. But the damage had already been done. About fifteen minutes later, when I got back in my hotel room, I began to feel numbness in my face, hands, and feet. I began trembling and vomiting. My heart was racing dangerously. I spent the night in a Reykjavik hospital.

What had happened quickly became clear, and was soon confirmed by a hospital test: one of these local Icelanders who had approached me (probably the one who said he was a big fan, as he was much closer to me than the “F**k you” guy) had dropped drugs into my drink. I wasn’t and am not on any other medication, and so there wasn’t any other explanation of how these things had gotten into my bloodstream.

[….]

For several days thereafter I was ill, but I did get to Reykjavik’s police station and gave them a bigger case than they have seen in good awhile. The police official with whom I spoke took immediate steps to identify and locate the principal suspects and obtain the restaurant’s surveillance video.

I should have seen it coming. After all, my visit had triggered a firestorm of abuse in the Icelandic press, all based on American Leftist talking points. Every story about my visit had the same elements: the notice that the SPLC claims that I purvey “hate speech,” which is a subjective judgment used to shut down dissent from the establishment line…

[….]

….meanwhile, I learned my lesson. The lesson I learned was that media demonization of those who dissent from the Leftist line is direct incitement to violence. By portraying me and others who raise legitimate questions about jihad terror and Sharia oppression as racist, bigoted Islamophobes, without allowing us a fair hearing, the media in Iceland and elsewhere in the West is actively endangering those who dare to dissent. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)***, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Center for American Progress and the rest who devote so much money, time and attention to demonizing “Islamophobes” are painting huge targets on our backs.

Continue reading here about Spencer’s horrible experience and his views on what it means. See what he says about Nazi Germany.  We know how that story ended…..

*** Note the close ties between the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (one of the nine federal contractors resettling refugees to your cities and towns), click here.  The SPLC has every right to speak critically of us who they oppose, but should federal tax dollars go to an organization (HIAS) so closely tied to the SPLC and its ‘hater’ rhetoric.  See more on the connection between HIAS wanting us investigated by the SPLC, here in 2014.

Muslim woman investigates groups behind “Women’s march,” finds Soros everywhere

screenshot-171
Longtime pals!

When I saw the headline for this story pass by yesterday, I said to myself, so what else is new. We have been writing about Soros for years (see here) especially as it relates to his one-world goal of erasing borders and flooding first world countries with impoverished migrants.

His role in helping open the flood gates in Europe is well documented.

But, this morning, thanks to Judy, I read the article by a Muslim woman, published in, of all places, the New York Times.

You should read it! See what one diligent investigator can do!

Entitled: ‘Billionaire George Soros has ties to more than 50 ‘partners’ of the Women’s March on Washington.’

In the pre-dawn darkness of today’s presidential inauguration day, I faced a choice, as a lifelong liberal feminist who voted for Donald Trump for president: lace up my pink Nike sneakers to step forward and take the DC Metro into the nation’s capital for the inauguration of America’s new president, or wait and go tomorrow to the after-party, dubbed the “Women’s March on Washington”?

The Guardian has touted the “Women’s March on Washington” as a “spontaneous” action for women’s rights. Another liberal media outlet, Vox, talks about the “huge, spontaneous groundswell” behind the march. On its website, organizers of the march are promoting their work as “a grassroots effort” with “independent” organizers. Even my local yoga studio, Beloved Yoga, is renting a bus and offering seats for $35. The march’s manifesto says magnificently, “The Rise of the Woman = The Rise of the Nation.”

It’s an idea that I, a liberal feminist, would embrace. But I know — and most of America knows — that the organizers of the march haven’t put into their manifesto: the march really isn’t a “women’s march.” It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump.

[….]

To understand the march better, I stayed up through the nights this week, studying the funding, politics and talking points of the some 403 groups that are “partners” of the march. Is this a non-partisan “Women’s March”?

Revelation! So, it was Soros who funded the Southern Poverty Law Center report naming me one of the top 15 anti-Muslim extremists in the US.

Asra Q. Nomani continues…..

Thank you Georgie for the artwork and the honor! https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/10/27/a-great-honor-splc-names-me-one-of-15-anti-muslim-extremists-in-america/

On the issues I care about as a Muslim, the “Women’s March,” unfortunately, has taken a stand on the side of partisan politics that has obfuscated the issues of Islamic extremism over the eight years of the Obama administration.

“Women’s March” partners include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has not only deflected on issues of Islamic extremism post-9/11, but opposes Muslim reforms that would allow women to be prayer leaders and pray in the front of mosques, without wearing headscarves as symbols of chastity. Partners also include the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which wrongly designated Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer, an “anti-Muslim extremist” in a biased report released before the election. The SPLC confirmed to me that Soros funded its “anti-Muslim extremists” report targeting Nawaz. (Ironically, CAIR also opposes abortions, but its leader still has a key speaking role.)

Read it all.

Visit my posts yesterday on how a refugee resettlement contractor, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, was promoting the march and see what Moveon.org (one of many Soros groups) is spearheading.

Southern Poverty Law Center wants to silence James Simpson now because….

….the SPLC has got to keep the donations flowing in (they have fat salaries to pay)!

Many of you are familiar with author/investigator James Simpson and may even have read his monograph that followed mine at the Center for Security Policy.

red-green-book-cover
https://www.amazon.com/Red-Green-Axis-Refugees-Immigration-Civilization/dp/151508518X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1480333507&sr=1-1&keywords=red+green+axis

A prolific writer and speaker, Simpson travels to many towns and cities to explain to the public how the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program works.  This week he is scheduled to speak in Michigan, but the Southern Poverty Law Center would be all too happy to shut him down with their usual name-calling strategy—don’t like the message, call it racist, bigoted, Islamophobic and scare the audience away.

Here is Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily telling us what all the fuss is about in Trump country—Michigan!

It doesn’t take much to get one’s self branded a racist in Michigan these days.

Donald Trump pulled off an upset win in the state that has gone Democrat in the previous two presidential elections, but that hasn’t stopped the entrenched establishment from demonizing those who hold Trump-like views on immigration.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is teaming up with local Detroit media to paint a Maryland-based journalist as an anti-Muslim “extremist” and “Islamophobe” simply because he has produced fact-based research on the U.S. government’s refugee resettlement program.

James Simpson has been invited to speak at the annual Business Roundtable Breakfast in Oakland County, one of several counties in Michigan that have been pummeled with refugees from the Middle East over the last eight years of the Obama administration.

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who won re-election in a landslide on Nov. 8, has been a vocal critic of the refugee program, threatening to sue the administration for violating the Refugee Act of 1980. Under Obama, the feds have distributed thousands of refugees into Oakland County without advance notice to Patterson and other local government officials. Once the federal month that follows the refugees runs out, Oakland County taxpayers are left holding the bag for the education and welfare of the refugees.

But the SPLC’s attack stance has now frightened away one of the Roundtable event’s main sponsors, the Fifth Third Bank.

SPLC is the same organization that tried to label former GOP presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson an “extremist” only to remove the post from its website and apologize after an intense nationwide backlash in 2015.

[….]

But the newest source of the media-made controversy in Michigan is Simpson, author of the 2015 book “The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.”

Simpson has been invited by Patterson to speak at the annual economic forum on Dec. 1. Simpson is a research fellow at Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. The SPLC was used as the source of the negative stories about Simpson that appeared in the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit Metro Times.

There is a lot of important information in Hohmann’s article, continue reading here.

If you missed it, see SPLC calls yours truly a top anti-Muslim extremist here.

Once again it is about money!

The ‘non-profit’ SPLC rakes in millions every year by scaring people with tactics like these.

If they made reasoned arguments about why we are wrong about the UN/US Refugee Program and why mass immigration is good for America (and American workers!), for instance, they simply couldn’t make enough money to pay the fat salaries  (Form 990 page 8) they pay their executives and staff.

screenshot-73
This is from their 2014 Form 990. Notice the last line in my screenshot. They have 21 employees making over $100,000 a year so they need to haul in a lot of money each year! http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2015/630/598/2015-630598743-0ca6eda4-9.pdf

 

One more thing!

Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and the Resettlement Jihad

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society lectures Trump; never mentions its pecuniary interest in refugees

This is one more in my continuing update and review of the financial positions of the nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors.

Here we have HIAS CEO Mark Hetfield admonishing Donald Trump on the day after his big win last Tuesday. I might respect the resettlement contractors a bit if they would make it clear somewhere, sometime, that they have a vested financial interest in the resettlement of refugees rather than this usual holier-than-thou pontification.  LOL! maybe there should be a little disclaimer at the end of all media references to them—“This organization is paid by the taxpayers of America to place refugees in towns and cities in 49 states.”

mark-hetfield
CEO Mark Hetfield is pulling down a salary package worth $336,323 running this ‘charity.’ http://www.give.org/charity-reviews/national/human-services/hias-in-silver-spring-md-19163

So far I’ve updated our older financial information on USCRI, LIRS, World Relief, and Church World Service.

USCRI is here (97% funded by taxpayers).

LIRS here (95% funded by taxpayers).

World Relief here (73% funded by taxpayers).

Church World Service here (64% funded by taxpayers).

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is up next.

And, btw, HIAS was given a huge grant a few years ago to study the growing opposition to the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program and mentioned RRW as a site that should be investigated by the Southern Poverty Law Center which did just that, see here.

Headquartered in Silver Spring,MD, HIAS had an income in 2014 of $36,161,323 according to this Charity Report. Their website is here.

This is how their income breaks down.  The way I see it, they are 56% funded by you, the taxpayer, which is the best of the contractors so far as some are above the 90% taxpayer funded level. (The service fee and operating grants below might be tax dollars too, but will give them the benefit of the doubt. The Migrant loan fee is definitely your money).

Riva Silverman ($250,000)

You will see on page 9 that in addition to CEO Hetfield, they have 9 other staffers making in excess of $100,000 at the top of a paid staff of 76! Why does Riva make so much $$$? And, where is Melanie?  As I have said many times before. If these were truly private charitable non-profits and not quasi-government organizations I wouldn’t care what they chose to pay their staff, but since we fund them, we have every right to publish and question their salaries.

Here are some of the places HIAS works:

Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency
Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services
HIAS New York
HIAS Pennsylvania
Jewish Child and Family Services (Chicago)

HIAS was very involved in lobbying for the ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty bill a few years ago in the Senate.  Still don’t understand why a group resettling legal refugees in search of jobs would want to make it even harder for their refugee clients when they must compete with mostly Hispanic laborers for low skilled jobs.

And, one final thing. It was HIAS that went crazy going after Donald Trump Jr. about likening a decision to take in not properly screened refugees to being told that one skittles candy in a handful was poisoned and asked if you would thus eat any. See what I mean—google HIAS and Skittles.

Comment worth noting: Reader likes my idea of an awards dinner for assorted haters (like me)

In response to my announcement that I had made the Southern Poverty Law Center’s top 15 list of “anti-Muslim extremists,” reader 7Delta likes my idea of an annual awards dinner for Islamophobes and assorted other bigots and haters.  (Although I maintain that the SPLC is hypocritical because they truly hate ordinary Americans — “deplorables” and “rednecks”—the people I love.)

richard-cohenbw
Richard Cohen, President and CEO of the filthy rich SPLC makes over $380,000 in annual compensation for his ‘work’ (figure includes related income) silencing speech he doesn’t like. Page 7 http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2015/630/598/2015-630598743-0ca6eda4-9.pdf

This is how you must deal with the likes of the filthy rich Hard Left political activists at the Southern Poverty Law Center—as Alinsky instructed—LAUGH AT THEM!  Make them the brunt of jokes. Alinsky very astutely said that ‘humor is the most powerful political weapon!’ Let’s use it!

Without further ado, here is 7Delta fleshing out the awards dinner concept:

In reply to Ann Corcoran.

Oh wow.

I get busy and miss out on all the important news! Congratulations, Ann. I’m so honored to say I knew you before you were a certified hater. You have really come a long way from the farm girl we all know and love.

I agree that we should have a Flowers of Hateophobia Dinner. At our Garden Veritas soiree–where we’ll serve hotdogs, because we don’t have pay for play–we can give awards: Best in Hate List for Most SPLC Appearances, Best Dressed Islamphobe (I’m pretty sure Geller has that one locked up), Most Humorous Hater (Spencer’s a strong leader), Most Likely to Make the Hate List Next Year, Best Bow Tie for Hate (Dr. Warner probably has this one), Most Grandmotherly Hater Without Horn-rimmed Glasses (Guess who?). And the Grand Thorn Awards, whose recipients will receive nothing but a cheap plaque we got at a yard sale, just like everybody else: The Morris Dees Award For Not Coming Anywhere Close to Having a Poverty Palace That Avarice Bought and The Mark Potok Chinless Award for Taking It On the Chin and Not Compiling Lists to Blame Others to Compensate for Short Comings.

We really are going to have to do this. Maybe we can even give out a Veritasophobia Award or two to the most deserving or we could huddle around whoever has the biggest phone screen to show reruns of Project Veritas videos to highlight who the real liars, cheats and thieves are, since finding that many plaques at yard sales will be tough anyway. We’ll just remind everybody that the video participants/recipients are SPLC’s BFFs. Some were even members of the Clinton Administration.

Let’s do it.

I’m game, this could be a huge!

Reluctantly (because so much is happening with the refugee program), if the Southern Poverty Law Center is going to act as the mafia for the refugee resettlement contractors, I guess I am going to have to educate readers more about them. We already have a tag for the SPLC where I will continue to archive information going forward.

There have been many many critical reports about them, use your search engine and you will see what I mean.

They make millions of dollars by calling ordinary Americans “haters” and attempting to silence speech!

We’ll start here with a look at the ‘non-profit’ organization worth over $340 million. This is a recent Form 990.  Check out their board members on page 7 then the employees with HUGE salaries begin on the bottom of 7 and on page 8.

21 employees make over $100,000 in annual compensation—wow!

If you have more ideas for our ‘Bigots Gala’ (what to call it, where to hold it, more awards!) send a comment (no foul language!) to this post.
