Stop treating the Southern Poverty Law Center like it’s a respectable and responsible organization

YouTube has tapped the Southern Poverty Law Center to help it police objectionable content, the Daily Caller reported this week.

What a disaster. YouTube couldn’t have chosen a worse or less trustworthy partner.

The SPLC is a dishonest, irresponsible and obnoxiously partisan organization. Trusting them to decide what constitutes objectionable and “extremist” content, as YouTube’s more than 100 “Trusted Flaggers” have been asked to do, is like asking the inmates to run the asylum.

YouTube’s monitoring program dates to 2012. However, according to the Caller, it has “exploded in size in recent years amid a Google push to increase regulation of the content on its platforms, which followed pressure from advertisers.”

“Fifty of the 113 program members joined in 2017 as YouTube stepped up its content policing,” the report added. “[T]he third-party groups work closely with YouTube’s employees to crack down on extremist content in two ways … First, the flaggers are equipped with digital tools allowing them to mass flag content for review by YouTube personnel. Second, the partner groups act as guides to YouTube’s content monitors and engineers designing the algorithms policing the video platform but may lack the expertise needed to tackle a given subject.”

Spokespersons for the SPLC have not yet responded to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment. In the meantime, though, it’s worth repeating: This group is not to be taken seriously, especially when it comes to identifying objectionable content and so-called hate speech.

  1. They are self evidently a terrorist hate group, because that is what they call people they disagree with.

    1. That’s because it’s nothing but projection. This is all part of the scheme to kill off whites under the Kalergi plan. Alinsky tactics.. accuse your enemy of that, which you are guilty.

  2. SPLC started in the late 60’s, run by jews to help blacks, they were funded in part by the federal government. They have become a total hate group, worst than the KKK and the American Nazis Party.
