Associated Press ^ | March 22, 2019 | Kim Chandler

The head of the Southern Poverty Law Center on Friday announced that he is stepping down, the latest high-profile departure from the watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups.

Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen sent an email to staff saying that he would be stepping down from his leadership role at the organization. The organization last week fired founder and prominent civil rights attorney Morris Dees for unspecified reasons.

“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote. […]

Last year, it agreed to pay a $3.4 million settlement after wrongly labeling a British organization and its founder as extremists. …

Speaking of organizations run by Kapos, the SPLC is a classic example.

“the watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups.” Let me correct that: “the self appointed watchdog organization best knows for its work deflecting attention from it’s on extremism onto groups who believe in a strong America with traditional values.”

I don’t understand the reference.

From Wikipedia:

A kapo or prisoner functionary was a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp who was assigned by the SS guards to supervise forced labor or carry out administrative tasks. Also called “prisoner self-administration”, the prisoner functionary system minimized costs by allowing camps to function with fewer SS personnel. The system was designed to turn victim against victim, as the prisoner functionaries were pitted against their fellow prisoners in order to maintain the favor of their SS overseers.

Are you saying the people who work for the SPLC are just as much put upon by some entity as are the people they wrongly accuse?

I’m not fond of Wikipedia links myself, but one has to convert parentheses into their corresponding percent codes if they are present in the URL.

If I were to guess, those who are of the SPLC and are Jewish (thus acting on behalf of the left) victimize other Jews via falsely calling (particularly conservative) organizations who act in their favor (and Israel’s favor) “extremist”, among other actions?

This requires a federal investigation into the non-profit to ensure that US citizen’s money’s were used properly and not scammed or used for blackmail.

Will any of this scandal and disruption at the SPLC cause the tech giants to quit using it as cover for suppressing Conservative thought?

Hi, ConservativeMind-

I’m not sure what the other gentleman/gentlewoman meant in the usage of ‘Kapo,’ however....

In my rather limited mind, I associate it with someone like George Soro’s father, who willingly worked with the Nazi party in the ‘legal’ confiscation of the property owned by the poor souls being headed into the Concentration Camps.

There were those in the camps who were intent on surviving to such an extent that they had no compulsion against harming their own kind/religious sect/political prisoners...

To a degree, I view George Soros and his sons as Kapo because they have no qualm in using monetary manipulation against their own Jewish kindred, let alone anyone else.

The winning British organization:

"Nawaz previously was a jihadi but reformed. For nearly a decade, he has fought against extreme Islamic views and interpretations of the religion's texts used to justify violence in the West and around the world."

#14. You are closer to the Jewish use of the word “KAPO”, i.e. one of your own ethnic, religious, etc. group who works with your enemies to control, hurt or kill you.

Some KAPOS were threatened with death or that of their families if they didn’t cooperate. Those had to make a choice of who was to have a chance of survival where the chance of survival was almost nil.

Others, like George Soros, took a strange and sick pleasure in doing the scavenging work of collecting the goods of Jews who were going to be deported to the camps or who were also gone, for use by the Third Reich for the war cause and their own enrichment (i.e. seized jewelry, money, art, furniture, property, etc).

The were the worst type of KAPO and to me and others include George Soros and sons, Sidney Blumenthal and Marxist son Max, Chuck Schumer (he will betray anyone for power); Diane Feinstein (also a powermonger and doesn’t care who she hurts - a sociopath); the very sick Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn) who thinks he’s black and hates everyone who doesn’t think like him;

I’ll include Sen. Blumenthal (D-Conn) because he used “Stolen Valor” status of our Vietnam war veterans for his fake persona, and used it to gain political positions. He should have been prosecuted under the “Stolen Valor Act”.
Also, he’s f*cking insane like another KAPO-type Democrat, Adam Schiff (D-Ca). Schiff will do anything to gain power because in his mind, conservatives are evil, not him.

“Watch dog group?” Shame on you, AP. The SPLC is a pit bull hate group that attacks conservative organizations in order to silence their opposition to the Left.

“watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups.”

Until just recently, I didn’t realize that The Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army were hate groups. They are, according to these fascist a$$hats!

The SPLC may have once done some good things, but they’re now a Stalinist smear group, spreading hatred to people who believe the media.
