  • RNC Officially Repudiates Discredited Southern Poverty Law Center

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) approved a resolution repudiating the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the purported “anti-hate” organization that has become a vehicle for smearing conservatives and critics of radical leftism. The resolution commits the RNC to officially “Refuting the legitimacy of the Southern Poverty Law Center to identify hate groups.” The SPLC bills itself as an expert on “hate groups,” maintaining a “hate map” that tracks them around the country. However, the SPLC has repeatedly added mainstream conservative organizations to its list, smearing their reputation and allowing violent far-left criminals to locate and target them...."

    April 29, 2019 (MassResistance) — Last month we reported how Houston MassResistance activists exposed a Houston Public Library "Drag Queen" as a convicted child sex offender. Now, it turns out that a second Houston Public Library Drag Queen was convicted of multiple sexual assaults against young children, according to records uncovered by Houston MassResistance activists. The man has also written a lurid article describing his work as a transgender prostitute. And he was photographed at a Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) event carrying a rubber chicken — a symbol used by homosexuals to indicate a sexual preference for young boys....

    The head of the Southern Poverty Law Center on Friday announced that he is stepping down, the latest high-profile departure from the watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups. Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen sent an email to staff saying that he would be stepping down from his leadership role at the organization. The organization last week fired founder and prominent civil rights attorney Morris Dees for unspecified reasons. “Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote. […] Last year, it agreed to pay a...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center said Thursday that it had fired its co-founder and chief trial lawyer, Morris Dees, after nearly a half-century, during which he helped build the organization into a fearsome powerhouse that focused on hate crimes and with an endowment that approached half a billion dollars. The group’s president, Richard Cohen, did not give a specific reason for the dismissal of Mr. Dees, 82, on Wednesday. But Mr. Cohen said in a statement that as a civil-rights group, the S.P.L.C. was “committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and...

    Liberals don't like blacks that much. Witness Samantha Bee and her husband fighting so hard to keep disadvantaged kids from coming to their Little Darlings' school. They only love the sense of superiority, of being The White Hero, they get from white-knighting for their favored perpetual racial damsels. The Southern Poverty Law Center has fired Morris Dees, the nonprofit civil rights organization's co-founder and former chief litigator. A 1994 Mongomery Advertiser series of articles about the Hate Organization found that Dees, despite posing as a crusader for blacks, actually... kinda hated blacks and didn't mind who knew it. --- The...

    The Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, a nationally known nonprofit that monitors hate organizations, said Thursday it had fired co-founder Morris Dees, who once won a lawsuit that bankrupted a leading Ku Klux Klan group. A statement by Richard Cohen, the president of the law center, said Dees' employment had been terminated, but it did not give a specific reason. "As a civil rights organization, the SPLC is committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and the values we hope to instill in the world.

    Friday, March 03, 2017 How to Fake an Islamophobia Crisis Posted by Daniel Greenfield 0 Comments Look out! It’s another fake Islamophobia crisis. “Huge Growth in Anti-Muslim Hate Groups During 2016: SPLC Report,” wails NBC News. “Watchdog: Number of anti-Muslim hate groups tripled since 2015,” FOX News bleats. ABC News vomits up this word salad. “Trump cited in report finding increase in US hate groups for 2nd year in a row.” The SPLC stands for the Southern Poverty Law Center: an organization with slightly less credibility than Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and without the academic degree...

    There are any number of liberal organizations that have fractured the rules of civility in order to advance the socialist agenda. Of these Obama aligned, leftist groups, none is more perverse in its grotesque slanders and misleading claims than the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees, Julian Bond and Joseph Levin. According to his law partner Millard Fuller, Dees’ only interest was to make money, a lot of it, and he didn’t care how. As cases in point, in 1958 Dees served as the state campaign manager for McDonald Gallion, a segregationist...

    The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has many allies within the Progressive movement. Funded largely by the most liberal elements of the Left, especially those within the George Soros network, like his Center for American Progress, BLM has been a major motivator for the attacks on police officers all over the country. With chants like “Pigs in a blanket, fry-em like bacon” and “What do we want? Dead Cops!,” the simple fact is that BLM has created an atmosphere of anger and hatred, and has incited violence against law enforcement officers across the country. In no way has the killing and...

    Last week, ABC’s Diane Sawyer hosted dire warnings about the rising number of government-hating militias and the danger they presumably pose to the American public. (1) And to whom did Sawyer and ABC correspondent Dan Harris turn for evidence that new, active militia groups are sprouting up all over the nation? Why to the Southern Poverty Law Center, of course. The SPLC was founded in 1971 by far-left, money and notoriety huckster Morris Dees, a man who has spent years collecting vast sums via civil law suits and spending vast sums in donation raising schemes. His antipathy for the right...

    The Leftwing extremist group called 'The Southern Poverty Law Center' of Montgomery, Alabama has with one stroke of the pen smeared conservatives and Patriots in its new, infamous 'blacklist' it entitles, 'Meet the Patriots.' Among those it includes in the blacklist are some of the most reputable conservative Patriots in America today, such as U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), federal judge and Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), Gun Owners of America (GOA) chief Larry Pratt, Fox News personality Glenn Beck, and U.S. Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), among others.

    Among the skunks, who will be attacking us for attending TEA Parties and standing up for our rights this campaign cycle will be Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center. He will continually call us a racist Hate Group. But who is this little twerp and where does he come from?

He labels patriotic groups as Hate Groups and liberals throw money at him. It makes them feel good. As George Wallace’s Coordinator of Youth Activities...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — An organization that tracks hate-group activity in the U.S. is accusing Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain, a black scholar known for her conservative stances on race and immigration, of being an apologist for white supremacists. The incident started last week when the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center posted a blog item critiquing the documentary A Conversation About Race, mentioning that positive comments by Swain lent the film an air of legitimacy.

    There's still good money in this strange creature known as "poverty law," it turns out. The successful fundraising firm, the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, sent out a mass email today hailing the election of Barack Obama as U.S. president. Incidentally, according to its most current publicly available tax return (2005), the fabulous wealthy nonprofit took in a staggering $110,924,926 in donations in 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004, and reported 2005 year-end assets of $212,958,685 (that's more than the Heritage Foundation has in assets). The SPLC exaggerates the scope of racism in the nation in order to frighten donors into...

    Famed civil rights lawyer Morris Dees is increasingly focused now on Latino immigrant worker rights. Dees, best-known for legal battles against the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist organizations and hate groups, spoke with University of Nebraska-Lincoln law students over noon pizza last week. “Human rights begins close to home,” he reminded them. The issue is “liberty and justice for all,” he told them. Latino workers, as well as other immigrants, come to the United States primarily for jobs, Dees said, sometimes migrating here because failed U.S. policies adversely affected conditions in their own countries. If there was a...
