In November, the American Association of University Professors released a report on social justice warriors, or SJWs, a movement of anti-feminists and anti-white conservatives who promote “safe spaces” for their communities and “safe space” rhetoric that “furthers the goal of whiteness and privilege.”
The report said they had “an extreme and deeply dangerous tendency to divide people on grounds of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and national origin.”
The AUPP has since called for a “holistic analysis” of their ideas, and the group has been targeted by conservatives for their anti-Trump bias.
In the wake of the election, conservative news outlet Breitbart News announced that the AUPPA had withdrawn its funding from the organization.
“In our opinion, it would be irresponsible for us to be associated with a group that promotes hatred and violence toward women and children,” AUPPG president Jonathan Holloway wrote in a statement to The Washington Post.
“We have already stated our desire to move our organizations from the political right to the center.”
The conservative news site has also been called out by the Southern Poverty Law Center for promoting “hate speech.”
In a statement, the SPLC wrote that the group “has a history of publishing white supremacist literature and is the home to the far-right American Renaissance, a white nationalist magazine and web site that promotes white nationalism, racism, and white supremacy.”
The group has also issued statements condemning the Trump administration’s policies on immigration, which it says are “a clear violation of our country’s immigration laws and policies.”
