Life Petitions and the Ruth Institute have launched an online petition demanding NBC retract its December 9 story, insinuating the Institute is a hate group.
Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., explained:
“Using the Southern Poverty Law Center as its source, NBC reported that 14 ‘hate groups’ received a total of $4.3 million in COVID relief administered by the Small Business Administration.
“The Institute was one of the smallest recipients, receiving $30,000 through the Paycheck Protection Program, which allowed us to keep the lights on and pay staff salaries.”
The petition notes:
“By the SPLC’s standards, hate groups would also include women’s athletic associations which oppose allowing ‘transgendered’ men to compete in women’s sports. Likewise, parents who object to men in cocktail dresses and tiaras interacting with children at Drag Queen Story Hour are equally hateful.”
The petition discloses that the sum received by the Ruth Institute was trifling compared to the millions given to Planned Parenthood affiliates and strip clubs.
“Apparently, the SPLC finds nothing hateful about the killing of unborn children and nothing degrading to women about pole dancing. With its story on ‘hate groups’ getting COVID relief, NBC has firmly established itself as a tool of the Sexual Revolution.”
Morse said NBC’s credibility problems go far beyond its December 9 story.
“During the past campaign, coverage by the networks, including NBC, was 67% positive for Biden but 95% negative for Trump.”
The petition charges:
“On the sexual front, NBC’s biases stand out as particularly odious. Ronan Farrow, formerly an NBC News investigative reporter, credibly claims they ordered him to stop investigating the Harvey Weinstein story. NBC denies this, but their denial is flimsy.”
Besides the retraction of its story, the petition demands that NBC stop using SPLC as a source, and “cease harassing and defaming organisations that are working to defend the family, the bedrock of American civilisation.”
