A new investigation has revealed that Amazon.com provides charitable funding to the discredited leftist hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), through the former’s AmazonSmile customer giving program. Amazon allows the SPLC to serve as a gatekeeper for the program, so naturally, the result is that Amazon customers are denied the ability to donate to politically conservative entities.
The National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR), a nonprofit dedicated to promoting free markets, has advanced a shareholder proposal that would compel Amazon to account for the costs of being attached to the SPLC. The NCPPR is running a public petition campaign designed to end the injustice of SPLC both controlling and benefiting from AmazonSmile.
The NCPPR declared, “We will continue to hold Amazon accountable until they end this tainted alliance.”
