Jackson lobbyist Hayes Dent, a candidate for the Mississippi state senate, and the top dog over at Hayes Dent Public Strategies, took tens of thousands of dollars from far left liberal attack dogs at the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, according to records obtained by Mississippi Conservative Daily.
The SPLC infamously targets conservatives and Christians and attacks them as “hate groups,” fomenting hatred for about half of Americans, regularly equating conservative Christians with racist hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

The SPLC is right at the center of the Orwellian policing of
