“Frothing With Bigots”: SPLC Sued By Gavin McInnes For Defamation

Conservative pundit and VICE Media co-founder Gavin McInnes as filed a lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) after they deemed his right-wing fraternal organization, the Proud Boys, a hate group.

McInnes’s attorney, Ron D. Coleman, filed a 61-page complaint in Sunday evening in the Middle District of Alabama, according to the Gateway Pundit‘s Cassandra Fairbanks (see actual filing below).

“By leveraging its remarkable power and influence to deplatform and defund targeted groups and individuals such as Mr. McInnes, SPLC deprives those with which it disagrees of venues in which their points of view may be expressed, of income and ultimately of their most priceless possession, their reputations,” reads the filing.
