Southern "Poverty" Law Center Insiders: The SPLC Is a "Highly Profitable Scam"

You don't say.

Peter Hanson:

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a "highly profitable scam" that "never lived up to the values it espoused," according to former SPLC staffer Bob Moser.

The New Yorker on Thursday published a scathing essay from Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accusing the left-wing non-profit of "ripping off donors" while turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks.

The SPLC fired co-founder Morris Dees on March 13 over unspecified conduct issues.

The SPLC announced Dees' firing after roughly two dozen SPLC employees previously signed a letter to the organizationís leadership expressing their alarm at "allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism," The Los Angeles Times reported.

"The firing of Dees has flushed up all the uncomfortable questions again. Were we complicit, by taking our paychecks and staying silent, in ripping off donors on behalf of an organization that never lived up to the values it espoused? Did we enable racial discrimination and sexual harassment by failing to speak out?" Moser asked in his article.

One of Moser's former colleagues answered in the affirmative.

"Of course we did," she told Moser. "It's shameful, but when youíre there you kind of end up accepting things. I never even considered speaking out when things happened to me! It doesnít feel good to recognize that. I was so into the work, and so motivated by it, I kind of shrugged off what was going on."

A spokesman for the SPLC did not return an email seeking comment on Moser's article.

A racist, sexist, sexual-harassment organization presumes to lecture us about racism, sexism, and hate.

We're in 1984 now.

The Mueller Dud Update: I missed this, this morning. (Go figure.)

The DOJ says the Mueller report will not contain any derogatory information about anyone not charged in the case.

That means that the report will not just throw a lot of dirt that can't be proven at Trump, absent any crime.

Which is what Democrats and NeverTrumpers have been praying for, if only to give them some intellectual cover for pushing this conspiracy theory for three years.
