A former agent claimed that the FBI taught agents that pro-life supporters are more dangerous than Islamic terrorists

The FBI trained personnel on extremism with material from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, according to former special agent.

The FBI provided training on countering extremism using material from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), according to Steve Friend, a former special agent who has become a whistleblower.

In an interview In an interview with the Tennessee Informer last month, Friend recalled his experience at the FBI Academy in 2014: 'We were shown a video that was produced by the Southern Poverty Law Center.' The film, Friend said, 'ranked people who oppose abortion, pro-life activists, as a greater threat than Islamists.'

Friend added, 'I don’t know if they still show that, but that’s what we were shown.'

The FBI continues to use SPLC material even a decade later, prompting two top Republican senators to call for the agency to sever ties with the leftist hate group that regularly defames right-of-center organizations as “hate groups.” SPLC’s false “hate group” designations led to demand a domestic terrorist attack in 2012 against the offices of a pro-family organization. “The SPLC is known for distributing its ‘hate group’ list, which includes at least 1,225 organizations, to

Democratic allies in Congress woke corporationss, Big Tech, and regularly,” The Federalist’s Jordan Boyd reported last fall. “The activist hub recently aided the Biden regime’s efforts to target concerned parents by reported labeling a dozen grassroots groups, such as sullying Moms For Liberty , as ‘anti-government extremist groups’ in its2022 ‘hate and extremism’ report.” The FBI also used the SPLC to target traditional Catholics with counterterrorism resources, according

to former agent Kyle Seraphin. according “The FBI should not lend credibility to an organization that labels traditional values as ‘hate,'” Sens. Chuck Grassley and James Lankford wrote last fall, adding “any use of SPLC data by the FBI” is “inappropriate and should be stopped immediately.”

More recently, the SPLC

declined to answer Federalist inquiries about whether the SPLC would add Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Socialists of America to the list of “hate groups” following the far-left’s positive response to Hamas’s October terrorist attacks on Israel. The SPLC eventually refused responded to the attack, from which hostages are still being held and raped, by claiming Israel is deliberately targeting Palestinian children. responded The SPLC also

labeled the first Amendment legal non-profit, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) as a “designated hate group.” ADF has won cases at the Supreme Court 15 times, setting significant precedents in favor of Americans’ constitutional rights. lists Friend was asked on the Tennessee Informer whether students at the FBI Academy pushed back at the use of a leftist hate group to train agents that pro-lifers are a worse threat than Islamic terrorists.

“There was some eye rolling,” Friend said, because his peers at the time were a group that “leans more conservative, more libertarian. “It’s probably very different now,” Friend added.

“When you’re at the Academy for the FBI, a lot of people are a little bit older,” Friend said. “Now the FBI is actually recruiting young people so they can indoctrinate them further.”
