Dr. Carol Swain, who is black, said the SPLC objected to her positive review of a film that offered credence to the idea that white people have been subjected to racism.
"I'm not surprised," she said. "I saw they were engaging in mission creep and lost sight of their original purpose and started going after conservatives."
"They're a corrupt group that seeks to raise a lot of money," Tucker Carlson said. "A lot of media organizations take them seriously."
Swain said that anyone who criticizes the SPLC takes the risk of being called a "hater."
"They do nothing really for the poor," she said of their name.
Swain said that, prior to being targeted, she wrote two books critical of white nationalism.
