SPLC Haters — The Other Shoe Falls

The nation’s foremost hate-hustling organization has dumped its other cofounder.

Last week, regarding the so-called “Southern Poverty Law Center,” we reported on the firing of cofounder Morris Dees over allegations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination.

Dees, a marketer and self-promoter, and his partner in crime, Richard Cohen, perfected the Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton race-bait shakedown model for, in effect, extorting money from corporations. Now comes word that Cohen is also out.

Late Friday afternoon news dumps are a way to avoid a lot of media attention. The letter I received from Cohen announcing his resignation came Saturday night during the March Madness playoffs — which is to say, it was really buried in the weeds. While Cohen had indicated to his board last year that they should start looking for his replacement, he now says, “In light of recent events, I’ve asked the board to immediately launch a search for an interim president in order to give the organization the best chance to heal.”

He does not mention what “recent events” were, but we all know he is referring to Dees’s firing, and the fact all of his alleged sexual harassment and racial discrimination occurred on Cohen’s watch. We don’t know to what extent Cohen may also be implicated in such misdeeds.

In his letter he notes, “We’ve heard from our staff that we need to do a better job of making sure that our workplace embodies the values we espouse — truth, justice, equity, and inclusion.” In other words, they have raised $500 million telling other people what values their workplaces should embody, but they apparently have not gotten a dose of their own medicine.

So, you may fairly conclude Dees, Cohen, and their cohorts are typical hypocritical leftists.
