The Tennessee Conservative [By Kelly M. Jackson] –
Nextdoor, the popular social networking platform, has expelled the Hamilton County Tennessee Chapter of Moms For Liberty after some users in their area complained to the platform.
This ban coincided with the addition of the parent’s group to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list and “Hate Map” of extremist terrorist and hate groups alongside groups like the KKK.
When looking at Nextdoor’s website, a few things stand out.
First is where the company is located – It is headquartered in San Francisco, a city well-known as a center for woke mentality in the U.S.
Second, on their Hate and Terror Groups page, they provide links to the websites they use to determine which groups should and shouldn’t include on their platform.
However, compared to the SPLC, the other two website have actual terrorist and hate groups with one glaring exception – Antifa. Despite burning down most of urban America during the summer of 2020 along with several factions of BLM, neither group are listed as a hate or terrorist group.
But Moms For Liberty, who have never burned down anything, make the SPLC’s list.
In fact, every chapter of Moms For Liberty in Tennessee is listed. Along with all the other chapters all over the country.
However, on Nextdoor’s Hate and Terror Group’s page, they give specific examples of those they consider hate groups.
Here are some of the selections: “Examples of hate groups banned by Nextdoor include: American Nazi Party, KKK, Three Percenters, the New Black Panther Party, the boogaloo movement, and Proud Boys.”
In a recent report, the Chapter Chair for the Hamilton County Moms For Liberty group, Tonya Dodd had this to say about the incident:
“As a mom and former teacher in the community who cares deeply about the future of our children, I think it is ironic that a company that aims to bring communities together has targeted a large group of our community members by canceling us. We cannot communicate with our community, they canceled us using the list from SPLC, which falsely suggests we belong among truly hateful and terror groups like the KKK,” Dodd added. “That’s the exact opposite of what we truly are.”
On the SPLC website, they have an interactive map that shows the amount of what they call “hate flyers/propaganda” being proliferated in every state and what groups are mostly responsible.
The screenshots show, show what they call “The Patriot Front” which accounts for nearly 3/4 of their “hate mail.” There are really no movements otherwise that they can use to promote their narrative that the United States is and has always been a “systemically racist country” loaded with scary, dangerous “terrorists”, or patriots as we know them.
It has been suggested that without characterizing groups like Moms For Liberty as Terror and Hate Groups, Nextdoor would have no cause to send out mass emails and fill their social media feeds with pleas for millions of dollars in donations from anyone who will believe their narrative.
