Former staffers say SPLC is a “highly profitable scam”

DC: The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a “highly profitable scam” that “never lived up to the values it espoused,” according to former SPLC staffer Bob Moser.

New York Magazine on Thursday published a scathing essay from Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accusing the left-wing non-profit of “ripping off donors” while turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks.

The SPLC fired co-founder Morris Dees on March 13 over unspecified conduct issues.

The SPLC announced Dees’ firing after roughly two dozen SPLC employees previously signed a letter to the organization’s leadership expressing their alarm at “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism,” The Los Angeles Times reported.

“The firing of Dees has flushed up all the uncomfortable questions again. Were we complicit, by taking our paychecks and staying silent, in ripping off donors on behalf of an organization that never lived up to the values it espoused? Did we enable racial discrimination and sexual harassment by failing to speak out?” Moser asked in his article.

One of Moser’s former colleagues answered in the affirmative.  “Of course we did,” she told Moser. “It’s shameful, but when you’re there you kind of end up accepting things. I never even considered speaking out when things happened to me! It doesn’t feel good to recognize that. I was so into the work, and so motivated by it, I kind of shrugged off what was going on.”  more here

  1. Socialists
    Like Democrats, talking the talk to take the walk (to the bank).

  2. Typical socialist front.
    Established and endowed by the ComIntern and sustained by the Fifth Columnists.
    The principals discovered the means to fortune and took them.
    Considering the rampant corruption of our judicial system, we can rest assured that the majority of their stolen largess was first extorted from the taxpayers.

    izlamo delenda est …

  3. “The non-profit recently reported more than half a billion dollars in assets, including $121 million in off-shore funds.”

    Let that sink in.

  4. I all ready knew that!
    500,000,000 $$$ for hate & vapor ware.
    WOW-JUST-WOW ! Why do we allow this?
