    Last week, ABC’s Diane Sawyer hosted dire warnings about the rising number of government-hating militias and the danger they presumably pose to the American public. (1) And to whom did Sawyer and ABC correspondent Dan Harris turn for evidence that new, active militia groups are sprouting up all over the nation? Why to the Southern Poverty Law Center, of course. The SPLC was founded in 1971 by far-left, money and notoriety huckster Morris Dees, a man who has spent years collecting vast sums via civil law suits and spending vast sums in donation raising schemes. His antipathy for the right...

    Conservative Examiner ^ | 4/18/2010 | Anthony G. Martin
    The Leftwing extremist group called 'The Southern Poverty Law Center' of Montgomery, Alabama has with one stroke of the pen smeared conservatives and Patriots in its new, infamous 'blacklist' it entitles, 'Meet the Patriots.' Among those it includes in the blacklist are some of the most reputable conservative Patriots in America today, such as U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), federal judge and Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), Gun Owners of America (GOA) chief Larry Pratt, Fox News personality Glenn Beck, and U.S. Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), among others.

    Among the skunks, who will be attacking us for attending TEA Parties and standing up for our rights this campaign cycle will be Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center. He will continually call us a racist Hate Group. But who is this little twerp and where does he come from? Morris Dees Dees is phony hustler who used to defend the Klan but switched sides for the money involved in fleecing sappy liberals. He labels patriotic groups as Hate Groups and liberals throw money at him. It makes them feel good. As George Wallace’s Coordinator of Youth Activities...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — An organization that tracks hate-group activity in the U.S. is accusing Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain, a black scholar known for her conservative stances on race and immigration, of being an apologist for white supremacists. The incident started last week when the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center posted a blog item critiquing the documentary A Conversation About Race, mentioning that positive comments by Swain lent the film an air of legitimacy.

    Are you on some government list as a possible "domestic terrorist" suspect because you have exercised your First Amendment right to express opposition to a government program or a proposed piece of legislation? Have you, like millions of your fellow Americans, expressed outrage over the trillions of dollars being poured into the unending series of government bailouts?Are you concerned about the escalating violence in Mexico and upset over the refusal of our government to secure our border and stop the continuing deluge of illegal aliens entering our country?Do you support the Second Amendment and oppose the prohibition, restriction, and confiscation...

    ....> Its business is fundraising, and its success at raking in the cash is based on its ability to sell gullible people on the idea that present-day America is awash in white racism and anti-Semitism, which it will fight tooth-and-nail as the public interest law firm it purports to be. That might lead a skeptic to wonder why it spends little on litigation and why Mr. Dees pockets a lot of money sent in by panicked donors who buy into the smear campaigns against organizations or prominent individuals who question racial preference programs. ....> And as we have come to...

    There's still good money in this strange creature known as "poverty law," it turns out. The successful fundraising firm, the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, sent out a mass email today hailing the election of Barack Obama as U.S. president. Incidentally, according to its most current publicly available tax return (2005), the fabulous wealthy nonprofit took in a staggering $110,924,926 in donations in 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004, and reported 2005 year-end assets of $212,958,685 (that's more than the Heritage Foundation has in assets). The SPLC exaggerates the scope of racism in the nation in order to frighten donors into...

    Famed civil rights lawyer Morris Dees is increasingly focused now on Latino immigrant worker rights. Dees, best-known for legal battles against the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist organizations and hate groups, spoke with University of Nebraska-Lincoln law students over noon pizza last week. “Human rights begins close to home,” he reminded them. The issue is “liberty and justice for all,” he told them. Latino workers, as well as other immigrants, come to the United States primarily for jobs, Dees said, sometimes migrating here because failed U.S. policies adversely affected conditions in their own countries. If there was a...
  • The Southern Poverty Law Center: A Twisted Definition of ‘Hate’

    Capital Research Center ^ | November 1, 2006 | Matthew Vadum
    Obsessed with fundraising, the fabulously wealthy Southern Poverty Law Center exaggerates the scope of racism in the United States to frighten donors into opening their wallets. It spends little on actual litigation and uses politically skewed definitions of racism to indoctrinate children while smearing conservatives who question racial preference programs. It has one key message: America is boiling over with hatred and intolerance. Decades after the civil rights movement forever changed America, U.S. race relations are always worse today than in the days of Jim Crow, according to SPLC. “Hate in America is a dreadful, daily constant. The dragging death...

    You've read about him. You've seen him on TV. A sappy network TV movie about him, starring Corbin Bernsen, is now doing re-run hell on the Lifetime Channel. To believe the conventional wisdom, Morris Dees, Jr. is a brave man who protects Blacks and Jews against White Supremacist Klansmen. That's the PR, anyway. The truth is otherwise. The real Morris Dees, chief of the misnamed Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), is using our courts to take American land from Americans and give it to illegal aliens. If this is the new civil rights, Martin Luther King, Jr. must be turning...
