Republican Louie Gohmert Claims Southern Poverty Law Center Has ‘Stirred Up More Hate Than Any Other Group,’ Makes No Mention of KKK
U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert said that he was upset the Southern Poverty Law Center is one of the partners for YouTube’s Trusted Flagger Program.
The GOP congressman from Texas stated his feelings about the center before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. The committee met with Google CEO Sundar Pichai to ask questions about how the company handles privacy, viewpoints that may be deemed as controversial, and data security. During the hearing, Gohmert expressed that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) “stirred up more hate” than any other hate group he knows.
Is he racist? Is he a member of KKK?
