SPLC—2013—Still No Minorities at the Top After 42 Years

Watching the Watchdogs, March 22, 2013

Last week, Watching the Watchdogs examined the Southern Poverty Law Center’s latest “hate map” fundraising tool and broke the amazing, astounding, unprecedented news that for the first time in history the number of alleged “hate groups” designated by the SPLC’s Public Relations chief, Mark Potok, (something even the FBI cannot do…), actually declined!

While this inconceivable turn of events left many investigators gasping in amazement, a quick head-count of the SPLC’s top executives reveals a caucus as Caucasian as it was the day Morris Dees opened the doors of the company in 1971. There are still some unbroken traditions that one can count on in this mad, mad world.

This seeming incongruity was brought to the attention of Mr. Dees 19 years ago by journalists Dan Morse and Greg Jaffe in their week-long exposé in the SPLC’s hometown newspaper, the Montgomery Advertiser, in 1994.

Dan Morse noted in his article, “Equal treatment? No blacks in center’s leadership“:

“Inside, no blacks have held top management positions in the center’s 23-year history, and some former employees say blacks are treated like second-class citizens.”

Last week the SPLC released its IRS Form 990 tax return for 2012, listing the names and compensation packages for its top executives (see pages 7-8). And the winners are:

Richard Cohen — President/CEO — $340,923
Morris Dees — Founder and Chief Trial Counsel — $344,771
Joseph Levin — Director and General Counsel — $185,102
Mary Bauer — Legal Director — $168,819
Teenie Hutchinson — Secretary — $162,644
Wendy Via — Development Director — $166,760 (+$19,582)
Mark Potok — Senior Fellow — $162,206  (+$10,814)
David Utter — Director — Miami –  $158,013

And a new (white) face for 2013:
Sheila Bedi — Deputy Legal Director –  $129,893

Not shown is Michael Toohey, the SPLC’s Former COO, $234,309 (+$4,428).  If anyone knows of a public photo of Mr. Toohey, please pass the info along to Watching the Watchdogs.

And what was Morris Dees’ response to Morse and Jaffe’s observations? “It is not easy to find black lawyers. Any organization can tell you that.” Not to get nit-picky, Mr. Dees, but lawyers make up only about half of the SPLC’s highest paid executives. Apparently, it’s not easy to find black accountants, administrators, computer experts or public relations people in 2013, either.

Conspicuously absent from the latest monochromatic rogue’s gallery, yet again… is Dr. Heidi Beirich, the SPLC’s new “Intelligence Director.” Dr. Beirich replaces “Senior Fellow” Mark Potok as the chief fundraiser and go-to media “expert.” Beirich and Potok both started working at the SPLC in 1999, both are public relations pros, though Dr. Beirich boasts two Masters degrees and a Doctorate to Mr. Potok’s B.S. in Poli-Sci, yet Dr. B has yet to be paid as much as her male counterpart.

Beirich

Also missing from the list is Lecia Brooks, the SPLC’s Outreach Director and highest paid minority, though not as highly paid as her white colleagues. In fact, when the Form 990 included salaries as paltry as $70,000, (they are a “non-profit” after all), our Ms. Brooks was nowhere to be found. As Outreach Director, Lecia Brooks’ primary concern is fundraising and she has no influence over the running of the company.

Hopefully, she got a 5-digit raise like the SPLC’s other prime fundraisers, Mark Potok and Wendy Via. It was a record-breaking year, after all.

Lecia Brooks does hold one unique distinction, though. She was allowed to serve as “Interim Director” of the SPLC’s “Teaching Tolerance” program for several months. As Dan Morse noted in his 1994 “Equal Treatment” article:

“The Law Center’s ambitious new project, Teaching Tolerance, which is designed to promote racial and cultural justice throughout America’s schools, is produced by an eight-member all-white staff according to the Law Center.”

“Teaching Tolerance” continued to be led by “whites only” until 2009, when Ms. Brooks was tapped to keep the seat warm during the interregnum until her successor could be selected, the highly diverse Maureen Costello:

No report on the all-white nature of the SPLC’s leadership would be complete without mentioning the company’s first president, Julian Bond, and its diverse Board of Directors. As Dan Morse pointed out in his 1994 article, “Friendly board: friends, associates fill board,” the SPLC’s board consists of friends and cronies of Morris Dees who rubber-stamp whatever is put before them by Dees. Some of the board members Morse mentioned in 1994 are still on the board today, as is at least one lingerie mogul.

All of the board members are unpaid, which is not unusual in the so-called “non-profit” sector, and almost all of them are located hundreds or thousands of miles from Montgomery. In short, they may be diverse on paper, but they are not highly paid and they have no influence on the day-to-day operations of the SPLC. It’s a classic case of “brownwashing” to dupe the donors.

And as we’ve mentioned numerous times, Morris Dees wrote in his autobiography, A Season For Justice, that he only offered Julian Bond the “largely honorary position of president” in exchange for the use of Bond’s name on the SPLC’s first fundraising letters. Last year, Watching the Watchdogs produced short video for Youtube that describes the history of the all-white leadership of the SPLC, Teaching Tolerance, the Bond paid endorsement and the rubber-stamp Board of Directors.

The only thing more difficult to believe than the fact that an alleged “civil rights” group headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, sitting literally in the back yard of Dr. Martin Luther King’s own Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, could remain lily-white at the top for more than 40 years is the incredible fact that well-meaning people sent the SPLC more than $40 million donor dollars last year.

What could that money have done for real charities closer to home?

    SPLC—2013—Still No Minorities at the Top After 42 Years

    I would make this headline read:

    2013 – Still No Mentally Stable People at the $PLC after all these years

    • Liberals have been doing infiltration tricks for years, like joining the Tea Party or pretending to be the KKK. It’s quite a good way to discredit those organizations.
      The far right, I now see, is doing it wrong. I think we should go after these white liberal lawyers by demanding they vacate their positions, and be replaced by diversity.
      The more you believe The Lie, the angrier you become once you realize the truth.

      • TheAntidote

        Yeah, exactly. Make them drink some koolaid.

  • JustaWhiteMom

    Morris Dees says “It is not easy to find black lawyers.”

    BIG! FAT! LIE!

    The far right tail of the black bell curve produces perfectly competent black lawyers. The problem is that lawyers like Morris Dees get prestige for themselves and their organizations by limiting their hiring to very elite law schools. That is the marker of power and status. He just doesn’t want to dip into the second tier to find people.

    I look forward to seeing race traitors shoved aside by their clients. They deserve it for their preening, patronizing attitudes.

    • Xanthippe2

      I bet he hires White or Jewish recent grads at low rates. They get to put something very PC on their resumes and the $PLC gets cheap legal help. Because of AA, a reasonalby smart Black recent grad is going to have plenty of job offers and will skip low paying ones. Also doesn’t have to prove he is PC.

    • Morris LeChat

      the far right tail of the bell curve? Look at it again my friend. The bel curve for blacks is so far to the left of the one for whites that even most of their BEST are not better than the average for whites. At the IQ level of 130 they BOTTOM OUT, there are no higher than that, I would say most posters on here are at least ten points higher than the smartest black person.

      • JustaWhiteMom

        I didn’t say they were the best lawyers, just reasonably good ones. You don’t have to be that smart to do the job, especially if you have good colleagues. Dees has no excuse.

        • Morris LeChat

          I see, you really just want to make him swallow diversity.

        • Dan

          Actually, many of them are very good attorneys.

    • TheAntidote

      Yes. Yes. Cast off your damnable white privilege and let the peeps ob kullah have dey place in dee sun! Several unions in NYC became negrified in this way, and subsequently became corrupt, bribe and payola encumbered, politically neutered wrecks.

    • Room101

      Morris Dees is a straight-up anti-White anti-Christian anti-American RACIST rich bastard dirty lawyer prick who also refuses to hire black folks based on the color of their skin, because he would have to report those statistics to the government.

      It doesn’t get any slimier, once you begin to scrutinize the career of Mr. Dees and all his associates.

      • Luca

        “…bastard dirty lawyer prick..”

        Why the redundancy?

        All you had to say was “lawyer.”

  • PBL

    Morris Dees cannot afford black lawyers, they might desire to do more than run a shake down operation. Such a mindset could interfere with $PLC fundraising, and hence bonuses.

    • dukem1

      I wonder how many of the SPLC donors think that they are contributing to the MLK blanket organization, the SCLC. More than a few I bet.

    • Morris LeChat

      “morris”, only jews name a kid “morris”. And only jewish ad executivesname cat food mascots morris too.

      • NC Mountain Man
        • Morris LeChat

          yes, that is a surname. In the US though, as a first name, it seems it is more often than not chosen by Jews. Of course, I was exaggerating when I said “only”.

      • Felix_M

        I’m starting to think every organization among whose members and officers the name Morris (and Sol, Abe, Saul and Rachel) is found at levels higher than the national average is just a money-making scam for shakedown artists.

    • betsy

      so in other words when the employee and the employer are both milking the civil rights scam it ups the money too much?

  • sbuffalonative

    They know that once they let blacks in, it’s over.

    • fakeemail

      Exactly. You don’t put the pawn at the top.

  • JohnEngelman

    And what was Morris Dees’ response to Morse and Jaffe’s observations? “It is not easy to find black lawyers.

    – Watching the Watchdogs, March 22, 2013

    The reason it is difficult to find black lawyers is because any black person who passes the bar exam is on the A list of every affirmative action policy of every law firm in the country.

    • JustaWhiteMom

      Not true. To get into BigLaw you have to go to a top school. That goes for minorities as well as Whites. Now, mind you, blacks have a much easier time getting into the big schools to begin with, but that is still a necessary precondition to biglaw money.

      • The__Bobster

        Most Zulus who graduate from top law schools do not make partner, which is where the big money is.

        • JustaWhiteMom

          Well little ole me certainly wouldn’t know anything about who makes partner and who doesn’t, so you may be right about that.

    I’m generally remiss to quote Malcolm X, but this quote from his autobiography seems appropriate for this thread:

    “I told him that, yes, I gave Jew credit for being among all other whites the most active, and the most vocal, financier, “leader” and “liberal” in the Negro civil rights movement. But I said at the same time I knew that the Jew played these roles for a very careful strategic reason: the more prejudice in America could be focused upon the Negro, then the more the white Gentiles’ would keep diverted off the Jew. I said that to me, one proof that all the civil rights posturing of so many Jews wasn’t sincere was that so often in the North the quickest segregationist were Jews themselves.  And an even clearer proof for me of how Jews truly regard Negroes, I said, was what invariably happened wherever a Negro moved into a neighborhood that was thickly Jewish. Who would lead the whites’ exodus? The Jews!” [p. 380]

    • So CAL Snowman

      The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Good stuff right there, even a hustler like Malcolm X could spot the obvious.

    • Morris LeChat

      MLK shows his inability to grasp logic and reasoning. A neighborhood that is “thickly” jewish,in many cases were neighborhoods that were completely jewish. SO duhhhh, yeah, guess who would be the first second third etc. all the way to the last to move out….answer- Jews. Wow, was he really that stupid. I mean, this isn’t really a “Maff” issue.

      • SargeInCharge

        True.  And by sharing Malcolm X’s quote I’m not implying that all Jews support multiracialism nor am I implying that all the implementers of multiracialism have been Jewish.  I’m merely agreeing with Malcolm X that among the Jews who have been the most outspoken in pushing black “civil rights”, they are motivated, in part, by a desire to aid a group they view as “another historically oppressed people”, but also to eradicate all “racism” so that Jews can be accepted and to take white Gentile focus away from Jews.  Obviously, the major motivating factor will differ  among individuals prone to ardent support of multiracialism, but I do think there is some truth to Malcolm X’s statement and that it may apply to some of the SPLC’s high ranking members. This this does not apply to the many Jews who are indifferent to multiracialism or the Jewish people who are outspoken against it like Jewamongyou or Lawrence Auster.

        • Morris LeChat

          jews are not interested in assimilating, certainly not with blacks

          • Felix_M

            How dare anyone say J-bots are racist! That’s anti-Semitic!

      • robinbishop34

        It could be argued that blacks don’t ‘move’ into an area, they are ‘moved’ into an area by folks with an axe to grind against the gentile majority.

        • Morris LeChat

          In the case of the Boston area, it was the government the “redlined” certain areas, outlines them with red on a map, and, if I remember correctly, they guaranteed or subsidized loans that banks made to blacks if they blacks bought homes in these areas. The blacks were encouraged to buy in those areas.

          • saxonsun

            The same with a formerly Jewish neighborhood in Schenectady, NY–many of us remember how safe it was when the Jews lived there. Now it’s mostly black/brown.

        • betsy

          hey, you gots to go where the scams are needed…… it’s tough out there.

      • MikeofAges

        Not to mention, look at what happened in one neighborhood in New York when the Jews did not leave. The Lubavitcher Jews chose to remain in Crown Heights in Brooklyn after it6 changed racially in the 1960s. That set off decades of strife between the Lubavitchers and African Americans. This abated only when the African Americans were replaced in the 1990s by Afro-Caribbean immigrants who did possess the same animus toward whites and other non-blacks. This is a game you can’t win. Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. Not metaphorically. Literally.

        When neighborhoods change racially, today more often turning into multi-raciall barrios than black ghettos, the whites who choose to stay behind very often include a lot of “bikers” and ex-convict types. These are people who may be more willing to use force to defend themselves.

        Another type which stays behind is the “down-and–outer” type, who is accepted because he shares the characteristics of a significant portion of the replacement community. White leave communities when they change racially because whites are not violent and not desirous of being menacing to other people. A neat trick of the mind, really, to blame the violence and pestilence of minority occupied communities on the people who don’t live there anymore.

        • Morris LeChat

          I have spoken with some of the Haredi from Crown Heights and Williamsburg. They say the few black residents that do live in or near the area tell them they hope they don’t leave. The blacks say they know that when the whites move out the neighborhood becomes dangerous and run down.

          • saxonsun

            Most definitely. I read an article a few yrs. ago about the gentrification of a black Brooklyn neighborhood. An elderly black man said that the neighborhood was safe again because the whites were moving back.

    • NC Mountain Man

      You should try to think about things a little more critically. In the same way Malcolm X appears to intelligently characterize Jews as wanting to divert attention away from themselves by causing strife between the Negro and the White Gentile, Malcolm is himself showing his resentment of being the Negro, and also trying to influence White readers to feel as if they are being led to dislike blacks. As if Jews are why Whites dislike blacks (contrarily, I can think of thousands of reasons).

      Instead of thinking about what people say, you should practice thinking about why they thought it in the first place, their intention, and their thought process behind the assertion. Especially given the context of the progenitor in question. Malcolm was conniving and manipulative in rhetoric… It was his job to be, and nobody would know about him if he wasn’t.

      The role of Jews is also, not particularly strategic as far as civil rights advocates are concerned. That is like saying Christian pastors that supported the abolition of slavery did so for motives other than the book of Exodus. Which isn’t accurate. Jews, at least religious Jews that wanted civil rights, like many Christian groups, genuinely thought they were doing the right thing given their morality. I can’t fault people for believing they are right if their intentions are good. I can, however, fault people who don’t learn from mistakes. Civil rights sounds good and just, and people who supported it can not be especially blamed, but today we understand that it was not healthy or positive. More black autonomy has led to more black crime and social instability, in an Africanization of culture. Sometimes we innocently expect the best of people. When we read that God made Man after himself, we take this as a suggestion of the equality of Man. And many people of faith defended this notion. But the fact is the differences are too large. We are dealing with a culture (Christianity) that is highly organized and civilized. An African could never have produced it, because it is a representation of a socially advanced civilization. We can understand today that Christianity is a product of our culture rather than just being a universal truth (for those of you here who don’t like Christianity, bear with me). I do not deny that Africans may behave better under this belief, but at the same time an African would not have thought of it. There simply are revelations in the Bible inconsistent with the natures of many other peoples. And that is the ultimate reason why civil rights was a failure, because we forgot that our civilization and the way we conduct ourselves is just radically different. But we can not constantly blame people 50 years ago who innocently believed a people so different could be Whites, but merely with black skin.

      • SargeInCharge

        No, I did think critically.  

        Malcolm said that Jews were drawn to aiding blacks solely or primarily to divert white attention away from them.  I didn’t accept Malcolm’s full reasoning, but agreed that may be one reason why Jews supported civil rights.  

        Further, Malcolm correctly points out that Jews had a higher rate and were more ardent in their support of black civil rights than Gentile whites.  Of course people supporting civil rights thought they were acting morally and doing the right thing, but the question is why did Jews have a much higher rate of support and were more ardent in their support?  Left solely to a moral explanation, that would imply that Jews are more moral than Gentile whites. 

        There would have to be other explanations other than morality.  Lack of familiarity with blacks is a plausible explanation, but so are the other explanations I proffered.  A feeling of kinship for another “fellow oppressed group” (the first reason I provided) is the most likely contributor for Jewish civil rights support rate greater than whites.

        • NC Mountain Man

          It doesn’t mean Jews have a higher rate of moral than Gentile Whites at all. Ultimately, we are the ones that created civilization, molded it, and we are responsible for it. Jews are unequally represented in many things, but that’s not the same thing as outnumbering people. Also, being vocal about morality is not the same thing as being moral.

          Anyway, it isn’t important because today we all know (should know) it was a mistake….

          When I was a young boy my father decided to trust me with the responsibility of putting all the doors on the shed we built, and some paneling. Needless to say, I put them all on wrong. But it wasn’t on purpose, I thought I was doing the right thing and I was excited to show my dad when I finished. My dad didn’t see any use beating me over it, because mistakes happen and sometimes we have the best of intentions. Understanding correction was all that was needed. As far as people in general go, I’ve learned no ones infallible. I’m not infallible, anyway, maybe some people would like to think they are. In fact, I feel when I make mistakes I can then do things much better than most/any one else. So in my mind, it’s still a moot point. As an optimist, I don’t think honest mistakes that had good intentioned reasoning (although naive) are worth too much upset. All that matters is where we take it from here, and most of us know the general goal we want to get to.

          As far as kinship for the “oppressed” goes… That isn’t the point you or Malcolm X made at all. Jews have been on both sides of most things for quite awhile. There were Confederate and Union Jews… Rich plantation Jews around Charleston who owned slaves… Jews that defended slavery as ok as long as you didn’t abuse your slaves and were a good Godly person. And ones that were northern abolitionists. The point Malcolm made is that Jews didn’t feel “kinship.” Nor should they, really. Blacks haven’t even been oppressed (oppression is relative anyway). They sold themselves into slavery for beads and gunpowder. And Whites often had worse conditions as serfs, but we aren’t complaining about how Feudalism stunted us. Ever. I’ve never heard that argument. Only how Feudalism was good in many ways, actually.

          But either way, I think your argument is kind of pointless. You aren’t really getting at anything. At best, you are just disagreeing with Malcolm, the guy you quoted “for truth,” presumably. And I’d say most people are unfamiliar with blacks, which is why so many White suburbanites have “liberal sensibilities.” Move them to an area blacks control and see how they respond, when they can’t be blissfully ignorant anymore. And that is exactly what defeats your argument. Supporting civil rights didn’t make black society agreeable. (Because money can’t cushion you from reality forever). You’ll find often that the same kinds of liberals that support civil rights and equality don’t want to be around blacks. Which is the real reason Malcolm is upset. He isn’t saying anything even remotely profound, interesting, perceptive, or accurate. He is only subtly expressing his personal crisis of being the member of a group that is predisposed to behavior that makes even those who would like to help him, not like him. It’s hard to like blacks, even when you think you’ve been told by God it’s the right thing to do.

      • Luca

        Behind every Jewish “good intention”, there is a buck to be made. And if making that buck disrupts the White, Christian, heterosexual, male power base, well that’s just icing on the cake. Almost everything they do is aimed at making money off of gentiles, indoctrinating them and dividing them to keep them weak and distracted. The only exception is their philanthropy and I suspect while some of that is genuine, the rest is for the tax deduction.

        • NC Mountain Man

          Actually, behind most “good intentions,” there is a buck to be made. Period. I don’t care who you say you are.
          Also, in what way is diversity actually profitable? You can make more money keeping blacks where they need to be instead of them causing instability in society. Often, the wealthiest Jews were less likely to support desegregation, etc. But of course, you just threw “money” out there, when you aren’t talking about money at all.
          What exactly am I being distracted from? Some mysterious group of people who cause wars and make a one world government? (I know every single “zog” argument). When I know who they are what happens? And is every single Jew that believes they’re doing the right thing–“Mitzvah” and “Tikkun Olam” (yeah yeah, I know a thing or two about Jews. I tell them about Jesus, but in a nice way. And we get along. I did bring a few of my Jewish friends to Christ, but it wasn’t because I proselytized. It helps if you know where they’re coming from, and set an example. Anyway…) really apart of this magical group that doesn’t want to be noticed? (As if they wouldn’t already be noticed, because you obviously think you know who they are. So by your logic, they are making the situation worse for themselves by upsetting us and announcing their presence).

          I’m kind of tired of these absurd, non-racially motivated conspiracy theories. Instead of talking about White, Christian, Heterosexual, Male society… Why don’t you BE a White Christian Man? I am distrustful of people who just talk about “Christian” society, but they haven’t studied the Bible or know what God wants for us. And admire the accomplishments of those who did things instead of being the kind of people that would contribute to that beautiful civilization today. Not saying this applies to you, but I’m not really interested in pretending that we’re impervious to greed, and only some people have ulterior motives. On the contrary, we need Christ because we do have ulterior motives. That’s why it’s important to be a passionate White Christian with righteous (but humble) conviction now more than ever.
          ….I just believe the way we’ve gone about bringing the Gospel to Jews over the past has been very un-Godly. That’s why it was unsuccessful in many ways (although the majority of Jews did convert over time). But God knows even when we try to follow the shepherd we stray from the flock.

          I don’t mean to be too preachy either, and I apologize.

          • Luca

            Diversity is very profitable through law suits, and the cottage industry of teaching diversity in the workplace and in schools. It is further profitable by distracting gentiles with other problems so that they won’t focus on the discrimination of Jews.

            I am not religious, I have no axe to grind in those matters and won’t pursue any discussion in that field..

            Here’s my take based upon over 50 years of personal experience, reading and observation and applying it all through a filter of common sense:

            Jews are much like any other group, there are the good, the bad and the ugly. All that matters are the percentages and the stereotypes. How did Jews get the same reputation and stereotypes throughout the world and throughout the ages? Obviously they are based in truth but tend to overgeneralize..

            As a percentage of population are Jews over-represented in Hollywood, politics, media, banking, law, universities, medicine, and the diamond trade? Absolutely. And in these positions are they looking out for themselves or for the society they happen to be in at the moment? Some do, some don’t, but it’s the percentages that matter. And will they make money in all their endeavors regardless of the moral issues that might be involved?

            Being a Jew is at the top of their list in matters of hierarchy. No matter where they are in the world, regardless if they are religious or not, being a Jew is a culture more than anything else.

            They believe they are superior because as a group they do have a superior IQ. But IQ is not everything. IQ has to be balanced with morality, common sense, problem solving, compassion, ethics, and fairness to be meaningful and to build a better society. Wherever jews go they do well but not through ethical business trading or superior IQ alone. They do conspire to make as much money as they can without regard to the impact on the host society.

            Some have argued that we feel this way and pick on them due to jealousy. Not true. Asians have a slightly better IQ average than Caucasians and they are very successful too, but you don’t hear the same stereotypes being used on them.

            There will always be two extreme positions on a subject, I look both ways and know that somewhere in the middle lies the truth. I just told you what I believe to be the truth. Nothing I said is based on prejudice or anti anything, it s based on common sense experience.

            I must respectfully disagree with you on the question of “jewish IQ superiority”. It is not IQ, but social and cultural insularity that contribute the most to jewish “success”. When your “own kind” is there to “grease the skids” either by “hook or crook” success is virtually assured. If one is to take numbers into consideration, jews are well overrepresented in colleges and universities. Part of it is a true love of education, but not all. Having “your own kind” at the top virtually assures that “your own kind” will be given preferential treatment. This is not a peculiarly jewish phenomonen, but is apparent in all races.
            Jews have contributed greatly to the betterment of mankind and at the same time have helped to deny other races the same “building blocks” (social and cultural insularity) that would assure other races’ future success. Jewish insistence on “multiculturalism and diversity” for the rest of us do neither them or us any good and actually leads to resentment against them.
            The debasement of our culture is primarily a result of those that run “hollywood” and the mass-media (that are primarily atheistic marxist ashkenazic jews–NOT jews “of the book”).
            It is the (long-dead, but “brilliant”) white males that came up with the concept of “limited government” and “rights” that are “endowed by our creator”–NOT “given” (and can be “taken away”) by government. No other “culture” in the world has ever come up with these ideas (and ideals).
            The United States is the last great hope for the world, but has been co-opted by internationalist (communist) types that hold no allegiance to the ideals that made the United States what it is (was?) Add to that the business types that elevate making maximum “wealth” for themselves without any consideration for those who actally perform the “work” to create “wealth”.
            As maligned as Henry Ford was in his recognition of “international jewry”, he did MORE to increase the standard of living for everyone in America than anyone else at the time. His decision to pay his workers $5.00 per day (when the average wage was $1.00 a day) caused the banksters and wall street types to howl that “capitalism would be destroyed” if his wage were allowed to prevail. Ford not only increased the standard of living, but gave “capitalism” such a boost that his policies are still being felt today (although to a much lesser degree).
            Globalism and the destruction of nationalism and patriotism will cause the destruction of this great country. The effects of globalism are already being felt . . .

          • Luca

            You couldn’t be more right. I do think the IQ is clearly a factor and of course their strong sense of “tribe”. As for the world view on globalism, Asians, Indians, Arabs and Persians are not buying into the diversity myth nor or they all that accepting of the Jewish propaganda.. I actually think the Russians are fed up with their own brand of ethnic diversity too. We all need to wake up and act up now.

          Some people tend to single out the Jews however truth be told, their are PLENTY of non-Jewish Whites, christian Whites out making a buck, look at Tim Wise and others for examples.

          • Xerxes22

            Tim Wise is half Jewish.

  • wattylersrevolt

    As an amatuer entymologist, I couldn’t help notice the presence of two members of the Blattaria species on the board…Blatarria Gigantus specifically…specifically:Mark Potok and Heidi Bierich.

  • Black are just an $PLC fund-raising tool. They don’t actually want to work with them.

    When Morris Dees opened the doors of the company in 1971 he opened the doors to the world’s largest shake-down operation, one that would prey upon the hearts and wallets of millions.

  • bigone4u

    It’s time for Eric Holder and the entire Justice Department to come crashing down on Mr. Dee’s racist, anti-black-in-practice organization. It’s only fair that SPLC get a heavy dose of the punishment it has inflicted on others for 40 years. I’m not holding my breath though.

  • MikeS

    “Inside, no blacks have held top management positions in the center’s
    23-year history, and some former employees say blacks are treated like
    second-class citizens.”

    ——————————————————————————————————————-

    They should be on their knees groveling and thanking Whitey for having the patience and tolerance to treat them that well. They’re always thinking about ways in which Whitey could be treating them better instead of pondering just how much worse it could be for them.

    As I’ve said a thousand times, Libs say it, and Conservatives do it. The irony is the ones that actually do it are the ones that are then criticized. All the left has to do is give lip service and they skate. To put it another way, conservatives live their lives and say, “this is how we are” (insert religion, politics, family, values, etc) while Libs say, “this is what people should do” and then don’t do it themselves (insert Streisand, Rosanne, Michael Moore, Baldwin etc).

  • These white liberals need to experience what they have forced on everyone else.

    The first person who needs to be replaced is “Hideous” Heidi Beirich herself, and I would like to see her replaced with a black.

    Remember How she tried to bully the Dallas Federalist Society about allowing Peter Brimelow to speak? http://www.vdare.com/articles/hideous-heidi-beirichs-bullying-laid-bare

    • TheAntidote

      Yes! I want to kick Beirick’s arse to the curb! Can we start a write-in movement? I want Frederika Wilson in that spot! I want Maxeen Watters!

  • Shattered

    No but it’s really really easy to find black rappers, thugs, gangsters, and criminals.

  • Luca

    Replace them all with blacks I say. Within three years the whole organization will be bankrupt.

    • Room101

      +The SPLC will say it’s “racist” if they’re forced to hire blacks.
      White racist America made blacks stupid, so the SPLC and ACLU can’t be held accountable for America’s “racist” failures.
      The Progressives, “liberals”, Democrats, commies, socialists, what have you, insist that society hasn’t changed until/unless their media does another anti-White propaganda story on non-white ‘liberation’.
      Like Rhodesia into Zimbabwe.
      Chicago or Atlanta or New Orleans too.
      If black people run the government, it’s corrupt and hazardous to your health to go near it if you want to live.

      They need to begin calling themselves what they are, the JSPCLC, but it ain’t gonna happen.

  • Paleoconn

    Lotsa shekels to be made in the race racket game, Mr. Dees, huh?

    • NYB

      There are no blacks at the top because Dees doesn’t trust them to see the inner financial workings. They might just actually believe that the SPLC exists to help blacks, not to be a money racket.

      Dee’s other worst fear is that a disillusioned insider may jump ship with his secrets and take them to the NAACP.

  • APaige

    I thought the push for diversity was to help minorities, but I guess it is just a ‘jobs program’ for hard core liberals.

  • Johnny Clay

    If they want black lawyers, come up here to DC and watch Channels 20 or 50 on TV. They advertise all the time.

  • Robert Binion

    Of thee I kvetch. Their pipedream has done to us what the Hun could not. These visionaries have never eaten a sour biscuit or hoe cake and, yet, want to teach white Southerners about blacks. Their organization has become merely a meaningless regimen. They play Mozart on jangly guitars. They are the quintessential separatists, zealots, the death of art.

    • Morris LeChat

      I can’t stand jewgrass music

  • The board meetings are as white as a KKK rally, only diffrence is all the members are rich. It is possible they may have a black janitor at their main clubhouse. I wonder what the REAL total compensation package is.

  • Morris LeChat

    you have to be a jew to get to the top of that organization

  • ViktorNN

    My oh my, what a beautiful takedown!

    Thank you “Watching the Watchdogs” – this is an article I will be citing regularly for the benefit of those who don’t know the truth about the SPLC.

  • Morris LeChat

    This group shows how jews take power in illegitimate, unethical ways, yet they always manipulate it so it is “leeeeegal”. They form an organization of lawyers that harass and intimidate and eventually become another branch of government. they work in tandem with other jews in government positions all through society, bureaucrats, judges, clerks etc. They have never been elected to anything, yet they are exercising power that they should not have. This kind of conduct has been the path jews have taken throughout history that has always resulted in their eventual parish state. Jews wormed their way into being advisors for kings and Tsars, and into bureaucratic positions throughout governments where they would support the machinations of other jews, forming a shadow government that ended up sacrificing the interests of the country for jewish interests.

  • The great anti racism crusaders won’t actually put any blacks in leadership positions in their organization. Don’t want to have to split up the pie of tax deductible donation funded six figure salaries. Look at the collage of pictures and look at their eyes, you can see the craziness seep through.
    LOL about not being able to find black lawyers, of course not, Quontravious ain’t gonna go to no law ‘skool!. For the handful out there, firms are dying to hire them to show off their diversity credentials, so unless they have some deep burning social justice passion, they’ll make more money in the private sector. As a CPA who has to work with attorneys at times, I’ve intersected with a few during my career who were even promoted to partner at larger firms but shuffled off and given “make work”. They knew it too but didn’t care, they had the money and the title so were willing to suffer being token diversity hires. I attended a leadership workshop with one who openly admitted he had almost no experience supervising people, yet he was a partner at a large national law firm. He was not a dumb man but was not nearly as sharp as the associates I deal with and these whiteys were going to have to work three times as hard to make partner. It’s all a joke.

  • Big Bill

    The Jews gave up control of the NAACP after a full-on attack by black folks. They aren’t about to make the same mistake twice.

  • I think most of us already know that some of the biggest White(ish) players in the race-hustling racket are some of the least likely to actually live around black people or even want to be around black people. They incessantly speak about hate, they take in as much money as they can from their frightened and feeble-minded followers, they give a fraction of a fraction of that money back to the community they are supposedly looking out for, they insulate themselves in gated communities surrounded by very light-skinned people and a smattering of the black “professional,” and then they go to the top of their ivory towers and berate all of the serfs for not working a few extra jobs to help pay for food, shelter, and college tuitions for those poor black and brown people. There’s just absolutely nothing good about these people. Not a glimmer of something good; not a speck of something good; not even a hope for something good; Nothing!

    I lived survived in Orange Mound and some other really bad areas in Memphis, TN for few years and years. I swear to you that I never saw Mark Potok or Morris Dees or Tim Wise walking their pearly White azz down the street or stopping by to see how the black folks were doing. Does anyone have any stories about these anti-racist avengers hanging out with the type of black people that they tell everyone else they should be living around? Have these people ever been filmed or photographed outside of sterile environments in a real-life socializing event that wasn’t a photo op?

  • Room101

    The SPLC considers normal people and our families to be so many taxpaying worms to be crushed and brought to heel for the sin of being born White.
    Make no mistake.
    The government considers your being born with White skin to be an affront against Dieversity, a “racist” thing they must temporarily tolerate for now.

    Eff these pussies after they destroy all modern infrastructure. The closest they’ll get to modern conveniences is buckshot and no water and no food.
    Get lost or die.
    That’s how it’s going to be.
    Normal people can no longer afford the insane notions that “liberals” order the taxpayers to do anymore.
    Enough.

  • Room101

    We have to examine the facts.
    The SPLC picks out and identifies who the Government should be paid billions and triilions to and which races shall be punished and destroyed, based on the color of their “racist” White skin.
    Don’t be surprised that the government targets certain “terrorists” for execution by drone, the designation “terrorist” to be determined by the virulently racist and anti-American anti-White hate group of filthy commies, the dirty SPLC with ties all the way back to the Kremlin and their KGB

    Eff these aholes..

    [There was a certain irony in the Supreme Court’s ruling against the Birmingham fire department. The department’s antiwhite hiring practices had been defended by the crack New York law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore, which lavished twenty-two hundred partner-hours and seventeen thousand associate hours-all pro bono-on the case. Cravath appeared to believe strongly in partner-hours and seventeen thousand associate hours-all pro bono-on the case. Cravath appeared to believe strongly in affirmative action-at least for other people. The action-at least for other people. The firm has never had a black partner, and there are only black partner, and there are only 5 blacks among its 224 associates. The population of New York City is one quarter black, and one wonders how Cravath would feel if a judge ordered it to match that figure in all its own hirings and promotions match that figure in all its own hirings and promotions]

    Just so we’re clear that we’re talking about the same thing, you mean the Southern Poverty Law Center founded by Morris Dees, whose only goal in creating the organisation was to grow rich. The man who pays himself more than nearly any officer of other advocacy groups surveyed by the National Journal, more than the chairmen of the ACLU, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Children’s Defense Fund? ($305,121, plus expenses last year). Compare that with the $25,000 Stephen Bright receives as the President and Sr. Counsel of the Southern Center for Human Rights, which actually takes on death penalty cases. The Morris Dees arrested and removed from court in 1975 for attempting to suborn perjury [bribing a witness] in the Joan Little murder trial in North Carolina. The same Morris Dees who in 1961 defended a man charged with beating one of the Freedom Riders. The legal fee was paid by the Ku Klux Klan and the White Citizen’s Council (The Progressive, July 1988).

    The same SPLC whose entire legal staff quit in 1986 in protest of Dees’s refusal to address issues–such as homelessness, voter registration, and affirmative action–that they considered far more pertinent to poor minorities, if far less marketable to affluent benefactors, than fighting the KKK? The same SPLC whose black employees regularly quit, citing harassment and discrimination? Black attorneys who have worked for the SPLC
    complain of systematic discrimination against them at the center. Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree has said: “My students have come back with disappointing experiences…. It’s particularly disappointing to encounter racism at a civil rights organization. (Dan Morse, “Equal Treatment? No blacks in center’s leadership,” Montgomery Advertiser, February 16, 1994)

    The same SPLC that was going to stop fund-raising when it reached an endowment of $50 million? That now has an endowment of $238 million, plus whatever undisclosed sum is held in its offshore account in the Cayman Islands? In 2000, SPLC fundraised $27 million and made an additional $17 million from investments, but spent only $13 million on its civil rights programme. Last year, it accumulated $36,295,888 and had programme expenses of $23,465,464. http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=4482

    The same SPLC that considers the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) a “hate group”, — because it opposes illegal immigration and uses demonstrations as a method, which the SPLC deems intimidation? The same SPLC that apparently considers
    people exercising their First Amendment rights to oppose criminality and law-breaking as ‘hate’? http://www.cis.org/immigration-splc The same SPLC that provides tangible support
    to NCLR (La Raza), whom U.S. Rep. Henry Gonzalez (D-Texas), a liberal Democrat,
    criticised as “reverse racism…. as evil as the deadly hatred of the Nazis.” Denouncing what he called “the politics of race,” he said.” “Only one thing counts to them, la raza above all”. The La Raza that has endorsed Jose Angel Gutierrez with its 1994 ‘Hero Award’. In 1969, he was on record as saying: ‘We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him’. Yet the SPLC wouldn’t even remotely consider listing their partner in crime as a ‘Hate Group’.

    The same SPLC that has been criticized by liberal civil rights writer Laird Wilcox for de facto
    functioning as a private intelligence gathering agency for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, doing yeoman’s work as a private organization that public law enforcement agencies are barred by law from doing (such as keeping dossiers on people solely because of their political or religious views) because for a government agency to do them would be a violation of civil rights?

    Yeah, the SPLC is a credible source of information. Perhaps you’d be better labelling them $₱£₡. For Dees, it’s all about the Benjamins.

    Heidi Beirich, the Hermann Goering of the white-hating Nazi Left. Here is a woman who majored in white-hating racism in college, and has been a well-paid professional racist ever since.

    The deal about no blacks on the Board is a scream. Apart from not wanting to share their money, these con men understand that if blacks had a substantial presence on the board it would go off on a wild, typically black, tangent, in short the scam would be ruined.
