Hey guys, you know that Payment Protection Program that your small business didn’t get, and therefore the employees were sadly You’re Fired’ed? Well some small bidnesses did get some PPP Ameros! Not the Mom & Pop, or the little bakery down the street, or your favorite dive bar (just guessing), but a whole other industry sector:
14 groups identified as hate groups benefited from the PPP program.
“Fourteen organizations designated as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center or the Anti-Defamation League have received funding from the Paycheck Protection Program totaling $4.3 million, according to data released last week by the Small Business Administration, revealing who benefited from the pandemic federal relief funds.
“Those organizations include the New Century Foundation, known for publishing the white supremacist website and now-discontinued magazine American Renaissance. That group is run by prominent white supremacist Jared Taylor, who for decades has argued that immigration policy should aim to “keep the country white.” The New Century Foundation received $51,600 in relief funds.”

Ever Steve Mnuchin administering this as some sort of patronage or slush fund, this was a Republican operation.
