Left-Wing Southern Poverty Law Center Idiot Claims “Drain The Swamp” Is Racist (VIDEO)

I have been familiar with the Southern Poverty Law Center for over 20 years. They are described as a “legal advocacy organization.” Early on, the SPLC did some good work fighting the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nation. However, in what is likely a more desperate need of money, the SPLC went off the deep end, classifying organizations such as The Family Research Council, a hate group and including people like Ayaan Hirsi Ali on their list of “anti-Muslim extremists.”

Like the Violence Policy Center and Media Matters for America, the SPLC is not an “advocacy” organization. They are a left-wing activist group, nothing more. It’s for that reason they have a bunch of pinheads, ready to go on television at a moment’s notice to spout their nonsense. It’s one thing for the SPLC to be cited by leftist publications such as The Nation and Mother Jones, but they continue to appeal to mainstream media sources to spread their nonsense.

This clip is a perfect example. Watch as hipster-doofus, Ryan Lenz attempts to say “drain the swamp” — a favorite in the late stages of the campaign for Donald Trump — is racist.

Lenz and the rest of the nincompoops over at the SPLC want people to believe the phrase originated as a meme. That’s funny.

“Drain the swamp” is a very common term, and origins have nothing to do with race. It goes back to a time when swamps were drained to lower mosquito populations in helping stave off malaria outbreaks.

It has long been used by politicians including Ronald Reagan in 1983 and Nance Pelosi in 2006:

Franklin Roosevelt had his first hundred days.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is thinking 100 hours, time enough, she says, to begin to “drain the swamp” after more than a decade of Republican rule.

Nancy Pelosi, racist. Isn’t that correct, Ryan?
