By taking this stance, the Hyatt Hotels Corporation has become complicit with the radical left’s attack on freedom of expression. By accepting the SPLC’s definition of a “hate group,” Hyatt is telling millions of Americans they are no longer welcome in their hotels.
Had Hyatt done their research, they would have found that the Southern Poverty Law Center has raised millions of dollars from attacking regular conservative organizations like the Family Research Council, PragerU, Turning Point USA, Alliance Defending Freedom, the American Conservative Union, among dozens of others.
Their decision to ban “hate groups,” in reality, is a decision to ban all freedom-loving, flag waving conservative Americans from their hotel chains. While we have come to expect this from left-wing radicals, we certainly did not expect a prominent American hotel chain to weaponize their brand and influence against the conservative voice.
The First Amendment wasn’t created to protect just leftist speech, it was created to protect ALL speech. We hope that Hyatt Hotels will reverse their decision and demonstrate that they value the democratic freedoms on which our nation was founded on instead of falling prey to the fascist tactics of the left.
ACT for America is the nation’s largest grassroots national security organization founded by Lebanese-American immigrant, Brigitte Gabriel.
