SPLC Hires Former Obama Hack for ‘Review of Workplace Culture’

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is doing some soul-searching after last week’s firing of cofounder Morris Dees, but it’s not straying too far from the leftist echo chamber.

According to The Montgomery Advisor, the legal nonprofit has hired Tina Tchen, former Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama and Assistant to president Barack H. Obama to review its internal practices.

“The events of the last week have been an eye-opening reminder that the walk towards justice must sometimes start at your own front door and force you to look at your past so you can improve your future,” said board chairman Bryan Fair. “A key first step in that process for the SPLC is an immediate, top-to-bottom external review of our workplace culture and our past practices and policies. Tina Tchen’s extraordinary experience and qualifications will be indispensable in helping us build a more effective and just organization.”

Dees was fired amid speculation of less-than-stellar treatment of female and minority employees.

Tchen, who now reportedly leads “workplace cultural compliance” at Buckley LLP, a huge law firm, has been tapped to bring an outside perspective into the SPLC, and ensure a fair workplace for all.

The organization has been criticized for its unwavering partisanship, and hiring Tchen doesn’t do much to dispute that claim. Rather, it reinforces that very idea.

The SPLC is infamous for labeling mainstream conservative thought as “hateful,” and putting mainstream conservative nonprofits on its “hate list.” (Related: Gavin McInnes Fills War Chest for Legal Battle Against SPLC)

It makes an enormous profit off of the hate industry, and in order to stay in business, must scaremonger about those with differing political views while grifting for donations from liberal suckers.
