On Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that his organization would give $2 million to two “anti-hate” groups, one of which routinely brands Christians and conservatives as “hate groups” on par with the Ku Klux Klan.
This hate-mongering organization inspired a terrorist attack in Washington, D.C., in 2012, attacked Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) multiple times, and was “liked” by Scalise’s shooter, James Hodgkinson.
Even so, Apple is teaming up with this organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), in the name of fighting “hate.”
To combat hate, Cook announced that Apple would donate $2 million to the SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League. Apple is also encouraging employees to contribute as well and offering to match their payments by two to one through September 30. As if that weren’t enough, the company is also setting up a system in iTunes software to let consumers directly donate to the SPLC.
