Who watches the watchdog? Hate monitor group SPLC embroiled in harassment scandal (VIDEO)

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization which crusades against racism, has been hit by a string of resignations amid workplace harassment claims. Analysts say the scandal reflects the watchdog’s duplicitous nature.

Richard Cohen, the organization’s president, has stepped down a week after SPLC founder Morris Dees was fired for unspecified reasons. The center, whose hate group monitoring activities are often accepted as gospel by the media, has found itself looking inward after Dees was accused of harassing non-white and female staff members.

According to reports, Dees’ inappropriate activities were quietly swept under the rug by the SPLC’s leadership. In an email to staff, Cohen said he took personal responsibility for any mistreatment that occurred at the organization on his watch.

Those who have experienced the wrath of the SPLC’s “hate” monitoring activities firsthand told RT that they were hardly surprised by the scandal.

“Corruption has been going on in the SPLC for decades, and it finally got so bad that somebody tried to put a stop to it,”said Glen Allen, a lawyer who lost his job after being blacklisted by the organization. He said that the group’s activism was primarily motivated by a desire to bring in donations from organizations that want the SPLC’s stamp of approval.

They purport to go after hate groups, but their definition of hate group is so amorphous, that it really comes down to people who they, with their left-wing orientation, decide are their political enemies.

Political commentator and award-winning author Carol Miller Swain, who found herself a target of the SPLC after accusing it of double standards, predicted that the group’s modus operandi would likely stay unchanged.

“The Southern Poverty Law Center has targeted many family-oriented Christian groups and labeled them as hate groups. And so they have been a menace, and they may continue to do that with Morris Dees gone,” Swain told RT.

“And it’s not clear that new leadership will be any more objective and neutral than the leadership it will replace.”

  1. Speaking of Hate and ” Haters ” , did ” ever give anyone a Reason to Love them …. There’s a reason behind Everything and these Jews’s repugnant behavior leaves little room to like them ……. Besides These so called ” Jews ” demand to be Tolerated while they Abuse Everyone …… and these Jews want to Force themselves on Everyone , Hook or by Crook they want Respect and Tolerence for their Evil Evil Actions which are contrary to Humanitarian norms ……

  2. The doo doo hits the fan. VT was right again as we have posted over and over what a rotten, donation hustler group that this is. Dees should have had a policeman monitoring him while he was on the job, but the SPLC was “trading” on his reputation to pull the bucks in. The Montgomery Advertiser had a Pulitzer Prize nomination expose on the group that no millennial knows anything about. Those reporters moved on and kept a low profile as there was no support for them publicly. They did not fail us, we failed them. And this is why those that would like to fight back don’t, as they see it as a useless sacrifice. Whose fault is that?

    • Jim: Doesn’t the South have enough of a problem overcoming the loss of the totally unconstitutional Civil War over the fake issue of slavery without having this organization of con artists making things worse with the phony name? Change the name to Northern Poverty Law Center. After all black slaves built New York and most of the 13 Colonies didn’t they? Slavery was legal at the time despite what anyone thinks about it. How many generals did Dishonest Abe have to go through before he came upon a drunk and a psychopath to do his dirty job for him? How about a 40% sales tax imposed on the South! Even by today’s standards that was a massive tax. Who wouldn’t go to war over that? But if you believe slavery ended at the Civil War watch this video about a century later with Edward R. Murrow, CBS Reports, Thanksgiving Day, 1960 before they stopped doing real investigative journalism:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJTVF_dya7E And nothing has changed today some 60 years later except the slaves in the fields are now mostly immigrants from below the border or other parts of the Planet. You won’t see Trump’s grandchildren in those fields will you? I have lived and paid taxes in Georgia since 1966. I have seen “the rest of the story” of the lies of the Civil War in history books.

    • And by the way Jim aren’t we all virtual slaves to government today at every level? Don’t we spend about half our lives struggling to pay taxes to local, county, state, federal government tax collectors who use military armed force to compel us, under threat of fines and jail time, to pay taxes to operate our totally corrupt minority elected government cesspools as you and other great editors document daily? As Pastor Cassady said in the great video above, “Is this a slave or not?” Today every color race from White to brown to red to black is a slave to totally outlaw corrupt government!
