Thread: Morris Dees terminated from SPLC....

  1. #1

    Morris Dees terminated from SPLC....

    No reason given. Care to conjecture?

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has dismissed founder Morris Dees, the civil-rights organization announced on Thursday. “Effective yesterday, Morris Dees’ employment at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was terminated,” said Richard Cohen, president of the SPLC. Dees, the SPLC co-founder and chief trial counsel, founded the Montgomery, Alabama-based center in 1971. “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,” Cohen said. “When one of our own fails to meet those standards, no matter his or her role in the organization, we take it seriously and must take appropriate action.” The statement did not elaborate on why Dees was let go.

    “Today we announced a number of immediate, concrete next steps we’re taking, including bringing in an outside organization to conduct a comprehensive assessment of our internal climate and workplace practices, to ensure that our talented staff is working in the environment that they deserve—one in which all voices are heard and all staff members are respected,” Cohen's statement read. “The SPLC is deeply committed to having a workplace that reflects the values it espouses—truth, justice, equity and inclusion, and we believe the steps we have taken today reaffirm that commitment.”

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of the country’s most well-funded “anti-hate” organizations, announced Thursday that it has fired its founder Morris Dees, suggesting in a statement that misconduct played a role in the decision.

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,” SPLC president Richard Cohen said in a statement.

    According to the Montgomery Advertiser, Dees’ biography no longer appears on the Montgomery-based organization’s website.
    ALReporter’s Josh Moon, citing multiple sources, said Dees faces allegations of sexual harassment.

    In a statement to the Associated Press, Dees said his dismissal involved a personnel issue and called the SPLC a “wonderful” organization. He said he wishes the organization luck.

    In his 1991 autobiography[12] Dees wrote that in 1962, as a young lawyer, he had represented Ku Klux Klan member Claude Henley, who faced Federal charges for attacking Freedom Riders in an incident documented by a Life magazine photographer. When Dees learned that another lawyer had asked for $15,000 to represent Henley, Dees offered to do the job for $5,000, which was roughly the median household salary in America at the time. Dees's defense helped Henley gain an acquittal. But Dees said he later had an "epiphany" and regretted defending Henley.
    The real joke here is that he seen the money to be made from the other side, and switched... now he sells hate from the other side.
    The common thread to the paradoxes that we encounter daily is the inconsistency of progressivism itself — or rather its ad hoc adoption of any means necessary to be justified by an anointed end, which is the quest for power and control.

    The stepdaughter sex scandal was 40 years ago.

    Are they firing him over that, or over something new?

    They find out he said "niggger" 50 years ago or something?

    They seem to be hinting that he is "guilty" of recent "sexual harassment" of personnel.

    What the real reason is we can only guess.

    I seem to remember a staff member accused him of work place related of harassment (sexual, of course). But can't find it now with Google search...

    Southern Poverty Law Center Fires Founder Morris Dees, Suggests Misconduct

    In a statement to the Associated Press, Dees said his dismissal involved a personnel issue and called the SPLC a “wonderful” organization. He said he wishes the organization luck.

    Dees, a Montgomery-based lawyer, co-founded the SPLC in 1971. Tax records show in 2017 that the organization had $450 million in assets.

    The development comes as observers say the organization’s credibility has eroded, in part, due to its overzealous adding of conservatives groups and right-leaning figures to its “hate list.” A recent Washington Post opinion-editorial criticized the SPLC for a series of recent “blunders,” which included its failed attempt to label House and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and author Maajid Nawaz as “extremists.”

    For decades, the hate list was a golden seal of disapproval, considered nonpartisan enough to be heeded by government agencies, police departments, corporations and journalists. But in recent years, as the list has swept up an increasing number of conservative activists — mostly in the anti-LGBT, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim categories — those conservatives have been fighting back. Boykin, of the FRC, recently sent a letter to about 100 media outlets (including The Washington Post) and corporate donors on behalf of four dozen groups and individuals “who have been targeted, defamed, or otherwise harmed” by the SPLC, warning that the hate list is no longer to be trusted. Mathew Staver, chairman of the Christian legal advocacy group Liberty Counsel, told me 60 organizations are interested in suing the SPLC.



    Along the way, the SPLC undermined its own credibility with a couple of blunders. In 2015, it apologized for listing Ben Carson as an extremist (though not on the hate list), saying the characterization was inaccurate. Then, this past June, the group paid $3.4 million to Muslim activist Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam organization to settle a threatened lawsuit.

    According to a June 2018 report, more than 60 groups have weighed legal action against the SPLC for branding them as “hate groups” after Nawaz successful sued the organization. In February, Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes sued the SPLC, accusing the organization of “defaming” him by publishing “false, damaging and defamatory” information in an attempt to “deplatform” him.

    The SPLC has reportedly worked with some of Silicon Valley’s largest technology companies, including Facebook, Google, and Twitter, to police their platforms for “hate,” and has enjoyed donations from Hollywood star George Clooney and Apple CEO Tim Cook.

    Big League Politics spoke with someone who is in contact with several SPLC employees, whom the source described as “whistleblowers.” The source, who asked to remain anonymous, said that there is increasing tension between the SPLC’s employees and its management.

    “There’s a lot of anger and resentment inside the company. Their black employees are paid less than their white ones,” the source said. “Dees feels that he’s being scapegoated because the SPLC was down a whole bunch of money. They didn’t raise that much money last year.”
    Morris had previously been accused of discriminatory treatment of black employees.
    When Big League Politics called the SPLC media center to ask why specifically Dees was fired, we were stonewalled.
    Last year, Big League Politics exposed several alleged misdeeds of Dees from court documents obtained from his divorce proceedings. The bombshell revelation was that Dees was accused of attempting to molest his stepdaughter with a sex toy. He also allegedly had an affair with an SPLC employee.

    You mean to tell me, after the fakestream news blasted The President of the United States non-stop for saying Nazis and white supremacists are "fine people" (which, as you should know, was completely fake news..he was talking about the people who were protesting the statue removal, not the tiki torch idiots..) the SPLC had a bad fundraising year??!
