SPLC Says TenHaken-Endorsing Family Heritage Alliance Stokes Anti-Muslim Hate

The Family Heritage Alliance, the conservative “Christian” organization endorsing Paul TenHaken for Sioux Falls mayor, has earned the attention of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch for its radical anti-Muslim activities in South Dakota:

Hatewatch identified several blog entries that praised and/or promoted anti-Muslim speakers or anti-Islam content on its website. Posted under tags such as “Islam,” “homeland security,” “Act for America” and “FHA Leadership,” most of the blogs were dedicated to promoting and summarizing events featuring known anti-Muslim figures including Phil Haney, John Guandolo, Chris Gaubatz, Shahram Hadian, Tom Wallace, ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabriel and Lt. Gen. (ret.) WilliamG. “Jerry” Boykin.

…Ed Randazzo, FHA’s director of political operations, expressed similar sentiments. In a public Facebook post on his personal profile, he voiced his support for Aynaz “Anni” Cyrus, an anti-Muslim figure, who travels the country spreading anti-Muslim hate at public speaking engagements. In his post, Randazzo characterized Islam as “this ideology described as a religion,” “an aberrant ideology already on our shores,” “evil,” and “an ideology that is antithetical to freedom and your well being” [].


SPLC’s Hatewatch documents six hate rallies that FHA promoted in South Dakota in 2017. SPLC also documents bills that FHA has pushed in the South Dakota Legislature that may appear reasonable but are actually copied from bills pushed in other states by hate groups trying to stir up anti-Muslim sentiment.
