SPLC President Resigns As Hateful “Anti-Hate” Group Grapples With Its Own Hate

The nonprofit that purveys hatred against mainstream conservatives is falling apart under the weight of its own intolerance.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is being forced to reckon with its own intolerence after its two highest-ranking executives have resigned in disgrace.

“The president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Richard Cohen, announced his resignation Friday, the latest in a series of high-profile departures at the anti-hate organization that have come amid allegations of misconduct and workplace discrimination,” the LA Times reported.

Last week, Morris Dees, a cofounder of group, was forced to resign amid vague allegations of misconduct. It was later reported that an email circulated from former SPLC employee Meredith Horton had accused management of maltreatment of female and minority employees. That prompted the group to launch an internal probe of workplace culture, led by former Obama administration official Tina Tchen.

“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen reportedly told staff in his email resignation.

Friday, the organization’s legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, also resigned via email.

As Big League Politics reported, and as was later confirmed by multiple outlets, tempers are boiling over inside the SPLC at what is viewed by employees as longstanding discrimination against minorities and females.

It’s difficult not to see the irony. America’s supposed protector against evil, racist, hateful, conservatives has apparently been perpetrating hate within their organization all along.

The SPLC has also been known to foment hatred externally. Most notably, Floyd Lee Corkins II pleaded guilty to terrorism charges after attempting to massacre the entire staff at the Family Research Counsel – a pro-traditional marriage group – in Washington, D.C. He told authorities that he was inspired by the SPLC’s “hate map,” which listed FRC.

Over time, the SPLC, which began by fighting the KKK nearly 40 years ago, changed its business model. In an effort to fundraise, it began conflating mainstream conservative groups with actual neo-Nazis and hate groups. The mainstream press became the lap dog for the group, viciously repeating the slanderous “hate” label, ruining the livelihoods of innocent people along the way.

‘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.
