It's easy to see why President Trump is so willing to take Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to task. The Amazon charity program Smile is being directed by an anti-Christian hate group. The Southern Poverty Law Center and the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control is in charge of where the charitable funds go.
Then there is a prominent Christian group, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), who has been banned from participating in the program. The Southern Poverty Law Center has decided that ADF is a hate group. Not a surprise, since they are anti-Christian.
The Daily Caller did some research on the types of groups that are being accepted into the program:
Unlike ADF, hardline Islamic groups are allowed to participate in Amazon Smile. That includes the Islamic Center of Jersey City, whose imam called Jews “apes and pigs” and requested Allah’s help in killing them “down to the very last one,” according to the Anti-Defamation League.
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is able to take part in Amazon Smile, despite a 2009 federal court ruling the U.S. government has “ample evidence” of ties between the group and Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.
The similarly named Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is also an Amazon Smile member. ICNA promotes the establishment of an Islamic caliphate and has ties to a radical Pakistani political group, Jamaat-e-Islami. The ADL has criticized ICNA for giving a platform to extremists.
Amazon’s spokesperson declined to comment to TheDCNF on the eligibility status of individual organizations but stressed the diversity of the more than one million participants in the program.
The spokesperson pointed to groups like the NRA Foundation, which liberals have tried to pressure Amazon into removing from the charity program. So far, the gun rights nonprofit has stayed in the program. But whether they continue to do so ultimately remains up to the SPLC.
“We remove organizations that the SPLC deems as ineligible,” Amazon’s spokesperson confirmed to TheDCNF.
TheDCNF identified several branches of the Nation of Islam, which the SPLC recognizes as an openly anti-Semitic organization, participating in Amazon Smile.
The Nation of Islam’s New York headquarters, for example, is eligible for donations through Amazon Smile.
Amazon Smile users can also donate to Muhammad Mosque No. 24, an arm of the Nation of Islam located in Richmond, Virginia. The group advocates for black nationalism and is open about its affiliation with the Nation of Islam.
Christians are out and Islam is in, according to the Amazon charitable program Smile. Why? Because that's the way the far-left SPLC wants it.
When you dig a little deeper, it's not easy to see why Trump takes on this corrupt company.
