SPLC Fires Founder Morris Dees

WFB: The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has fired its founder, Morris Dees.

The SPLC announced Thursday afternoon that Dees—who in 1971 co-founded the far-left nonprofit, which has regularly been cited by major outlets over the years for its “hate” group designations that oftentimes lump Republican groups in with actual racist groups—has parted ways with its founder.

“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,” Richard Cohen, the SPLC’s president, said in a statement. “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.”

  1. SPLC? Dees? They gots “standards”? Who the fuck knew? If they do (ROFLOL!!!), must be low ones, “bar” none. I’d be willing to bet the only standards bar they have, comes with bottles of alcohol and a bartender.

    And you just KNOW that Dees was kicked out with a Golden Parachute. I’d rather that it was a granite parachute.

  2. The net value of the offshore SPLC accounts dropped by $80MM this last year. That’s probably his real sin. Anything else is just an excuse to get rid of him.

  3. The Black guy from Saturday Night Live?

    ohhhh… I liked him.

    NO WAIT!!!! That’s Garrett Morris. The guy I’m thinking of was in that Prince band, “The Time.”

    Liked him too.

  4. Stalin must have ordered another purge.

    Will we never be rid of these damned Trotsky-ites?
