Morris Dees Fired From SPLC — There is something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.
Morris Dees, who has been the subject of hagiographic movies, documentaries and mass media articles and has been influencing our society for the worst since 1971 — really people the KKK was a dead joke by 1971 — was fired yesterday (March 13) from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
And the SPLC is being audited.
The SPLC has been a scam from the start starting long after the heavy lifting in the Civil Rights movement was finished with a business strategy of beating long-dead dogs with the purpose of getting Dees — who started off as working for George Wallace — on easy street.
As long as Dees picked on the already marginalized Klan he was safe. Who likes the Klan? Really?
Of course, he leveraged his reputation into labeling just about every group opposed to the progressive wing of the Democrat Party as a “hate group” even to the point where he inspired a terrorist attack on the Family Research Center in Washington D.C. in 2012.
Anyway, a once thought untouchable leftist icon is now out. These are strange times indeed.
