One of America’s most profitable faux-hate fundraising schemes may soon be facing additional scrutiny over its non-profit status from the IRS, after Arkansas’ Senator Tom Cotton called for the agency to investigate the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Cotton sent a letter to the commissioner of the IRS on Tuesday calling for an investigation into the SPLC’s corrupt practices involving the defamation of its political opponents and off-shoring of hundreds of millions of dollars-ostensibly raised to litigate against the supposed ‘hate groups’ the SPLC opposes- to avoid financial transparency.
Cotton represents the most high-ranking government official thus far to recognize the SPLC as a hate group itself, a label which the group wildly and indiscriminately applies to individuals and entities that oppose liberalism and the Democratic Party.
The Arkansas Republican also appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday to discuss the case for the recognition of the legal group as a hate group itself. Watch here:
One week after the head of the Southern Poverty Law Center and the organization's legal director resigned, more employees are coming forward to tell CNN that the nonprofit group suffers from a "systemic culture of sexism within its workplace."
The Southern Poverty Law Center - the "vicious left-wing attack dog" used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify "hate groups" - is unraveling. A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims - with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over "allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism," the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization's legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday.
Silicon Valley's favorite arbiter of hate, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has fired co-founder Morris Dees and scrubbed his biography from their website, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.
