Kresta in the Afternoon – May 15, 2020 – Hour 1

+  Seeking another Jonas Salk (2 segments)

  • Description: Although cities are slowly beginning to reopen, we know we are a long way off from returning to normal. The NFL is experimenting with ways to use virtual fan noise to compensate for playing in empty stadiums, and there are debates over whether college football will be played at all. Most experts have said life will not fully go back to normal until there is a vaccine for COVID19. 65 years ago, doctors faced a similar challenge as they combated the Polio virus. We look back at that story with Paul Kengor. Also, Al shares a few thoughts on the Plandemic video.

+  Making Hate Pay: Where the SPLC Went Wrong

  • Description: When journalists, researchers, and government officials want the latest health information, they consult the CDC. When they want a look at the Stock Market, they consult the Dow and other markets. And when they want info about racism and other prejudice in America, they consult the Southern Poverty Law Center. Unfortunately, the SPLC has shifted from its original motives and now operates as a politically-driven group that frequently targets Christian groups on the grounds of being Islamophobic, homophobic, etc. We look at where they went wrong with Tyler O'Neill.

    • Making Hate Pay: The Corruption of the Southern Poverty Law Center

      Racial discrimination. Sexual harassment. Off-shore accounts. Inflated and biased attacks on “hate.” These are some of the many reasons Americans should mistrust the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Southern Poverty Law Center started with noble intentions and has done much good over the years, but a pernicious corruption has undermined the organization’s original mission and contributed to a climate of fear and hostility in America. Hotels, web platforms, and credit card companies have blacklisted law-abiding Americans because the SPLC disagrees with their political views. The SPLC’s false accusations have done concrete harm, costing the organization millions in lawsuits. A deranged man even attempted to commit mass murder, having been inspired by the SPLC’s rhetoric. How did a civil rights group dedicated to saving the innocent from the death penalty become a pernicious threat to America’s free speech culture? How did an organization dedicated to fighting poverty wind up with millions in the Cayman Islands? How did a civil rights stalwart find itself accused of racism and sexism? Making Hate Pay tells the inside story of how the SPLC yielded to many forms of corruption, and what it means for free speech in America today. It also explains why Corporate America, Big Tech, government, and the media are wrong to take the SPLC’s disingenuous tactics at face value, and the serious damage they cause by trusting this corrupt organization.
