Southern Poverty lawyer Jim Hoft has told Breitbart News that he will “go to prison” if he is sued over his comments criticizing the Southern Poverty Act.
“I’m going to go to jail if I don’t get sued,” Hoft said.
“I have the right to do what I believe in.
I’m going after it, and I’m not going to back down from it.”
Hoft told Breitbart’s Matt Boyle that he believes the Southern Law Poverty Law Center is a “political group” with ties to President Donald Trump and that he has “a lot of friends at the Southern Pacific Legal Foundation.”
“I’ve had a lot of people tell me that they want to sue me and that’s not going well.
They’re going to try to get their own lawyers, they’re going have a bunch of lawyers that are going to defend me, and they’re not going get their money back,” Hofts said.”
And I know that I’m gonna be in jail if this doesn’t end.
And that’s a promise.”
Hoftt’s remarks came after Hoft’s comments in an op-ed published by The Weekly Standard.
The Daily Caller published an excerpt of the op-ad, which stated that Hoft is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention and that his organization’s goal is “to promote religious freedom and to advance Judeo-Christian values.”
“When I said that I did not think it was true,” Hopper told Breitbart.
“It is not true. And I don´t want to be sued because I made a comment that I know was not true.”
Hofer also told Breitbart that the Southern American Foundation is a nonprofit group that “is the largest and most powerful civil rights organization in the world.”
The Southern Poverty Center (SPLC), an umbrella group for American hate groups, has been a frequent target of Hofts attacks.
In August 2016, Hoft attacked the SPLC for its “troubling” relationship with “the white supremacists.”
“It’s like they’re working with the White Supremacists.
They want to make sure the white supremacists have the white privilege that the white people have,” Hofter said.
Hoft also claimed that the SPL is funded by “the bigots in the GOP who are really anti-gay, anti-Muslim, and anti-women, and that they have been paying these white supremacists to kill us.
It’s just disgusting.”
Haft also accused the SPLA of being “un-American” for not having a “white supremacist” board of directors.
“You know, the SPAL does not have a white supremacist board.
It doesn’t have a board of white supremacists.
It has a board that is made up of people of color and people of different faiths and cultures.
And you know, you have a diversity on the board.
You have people of all ethnicities and religions,” Hofty said.
The Southern Alliance for Civil Rights (SACCR), a coalition of faith groups that includes the Southern Baptists and the Southern Conference of Catholic Bishops, is also an SPLC target.
In a statement, the Southern Alliance said, “The Southern Baptist convention does not endorse or oppose any political party, or any political candidate, candidate for office, or political group.
In fact, the American Baptist Convention has long supported the separation of church and state and stands for the sanctity of the American Constitution and all that it protects.”
Hugh Nibley, a former SPLC member and one of the authors of the SPOLA, told Breitbart the SPLO has been “frequently” criticized by Hoft for its relationship with the Southern Southern Poverty Organization.
“If you go back and look at the SPSL over the years, it was very much part of the coalition that the Christian right used to push anti-Semitism, racism, and hatred,” Nibleys said.
Nibley said Hoft was referring to the SPCL’s “white supremacy” agenda.
“The Southern Christian Leadership Conference is part of this coalition that pushes anti-Christian hatred,” he said.
Hoft said that the only thing that the organization does is “promote and defend” Southern Baptist churches.
“We are not a hate group.
We are not anti-Semitic.
We do not advocate hatred,” Hoppers said.”[We’re] pro-American.
We advocate for freedom.
We stand for Judeo Christian values, and we are a Christian organization,” Hoppy added.”
So if the SPLL wants to get sued, it should get sued.
It should get the money back, and it should be taken off the air.
And it should not be allowed to continue doing this.
If it’s legal, it’s a violation of federal law, and [the SPLO] has to do something about it.””
And we will go to court to defend the Southern Christian Alliance and the SP
