EXCLUSIVE: SPLC’s Morris Dees Fired After BLP Exposé, Employees Detail Internal Strife

The SPLC is facing turmoil.

Published

on

America’s most influential hate group has fired Morris Dees, its 82-year-old co-founder, but failed to provide a concrete reason for his termination.

“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,” Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen 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. Today we announced a number of immediate, concrete next steps we’re taking, including bringing in an outside organization to conduct a comprehensive assessment of our internal climate and workplace practices, to ensure that our talented staff is working in the environment that they deserve – one in which all voices are heard and all staff members are respected,” the statement continued.

Big League Politics spoke with someone who is in contact with several SPLC employees, whom the source described as “whistleblowers.” The source, who asked to remain anonymous, said that there is increasing tension between the SPLC’s employees and its management.

“There’s a lot of anger and resentment inside the company. Their black employees are paid less than their white ones,” the source said. “Dees feels that he’s being scapegoated because the SPLC was down a whole bunch of money. They didn’t raise that much money last year.”

Morris had previously been accused of discriminatory treatment of black employees.

When Big League Politics called the SPLC media center to ask why specifically Dees was fired, we were stonewalled.

Last year, Big League Politics exposed several alleged misdeeds of Dees from court documents obtained from his divorce proceedings. The bombshell revelation was that Dees was accused of attempting to molest his stepdaughter with a sex toy. He also allegedly had an affair with an SPLC employee.

The SPLC works with tech companies to label mainstream conservative organizations as “hate groups,” helping to facilitate the de-platforming of members of those organizations.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
