As I wrote in Taki’s Magazine in 2017:

I don’t feel all that sorry for the SPLC because it’s enjoyed a most remunerative last 46 years.

You may recall the SPLC backing its first president, Martin Luther King Jr., in its heroic civil rights battles of the 1950s.

(Except, technically, that wasn’t quite the SPLC, that was the SCLC: Southern Christian Leadership Conference.)

Or you may remember the brave black radicals of the SPLC, such as John Lewis, Stokely Carmichael, and H. Rap Brown, fighting bigoted Southern sheriffs in the 1960s. (Except that wasn’t precisely the SPLC either, that was the SNCC: Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.)

The oddly named Southern Poverty Law Center was actually founded in 1971, well after the great victories of the Civil Rights Era had been won, by two white guys, Joseph J. Levin Jr. and Morris Dees, the latter a member of the Direct Marketing (i.e., junk mail) Association’s Hall of Fame.

It’s not all that clear what the SPLC has to do with “poverty,” other than in helping to erase the last trace of it from Mr. Dees’ gaudy lifestyle. But it likely hasn’t hurt fund-raising that the acronym SPLC is easily mistaken for the legendary SCLC and SNCC.

Perhaps the confusion is just a coincidence. On the other hand, it’s reminiscent of the movie Boiler Room, a predecessor of The Wolf of Wall Street, in which the penny-stock peddlers work for a firm named “J.T. Marlin” to get the readily perplexed to mistake it for J.P. Morgan.

    Southern – becuz sumpin baaaad happenin down there.
    Poverty – invokes LBJ and, you know, he was righteous.
    Law – therefore legal and … above suspicion and … above the law.
    Center – because no other poverty law shakedown game can be allowed to run from elsewhere.

    “Except that wasn’t precisely the SPLC either, that was the SNCC: Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.”

    As militancy increased during that era, they changed their name to the Student National [dropping Nonviolent] Coordinating Committee.

    It is incredibly graphic, to be sure. To give you an idea, here is a partial description. If you do not want to know, do not read any further.

    Early on, the perp kills a wounded man who is attempting to crawl away toward safety. (The man leaves a trail of blood behind him as he makes his feeble effort to escape.) Later, he encounters a wounded woman who is lying on the sidewalk moaning “Help me! Help me!” He helps her by putting two bullets in her brain. As a final insult, he runs over her corpse with his car while speeding away. You see all of this from his perspective.

    At one point, a man charges toward him – and toward the viewer – and receives several point-blank shots to the head. You see the man trying to shield his face with his hand in a final futile stab at self-preservation. He dies right in front of you.

    Most of the victims were trapped in a large room with no furniture. They cowered in the corners of the room because there was literally nowhere to hide. The perp mowed them down like animals, spraying their bodies with dozens of bullets. For good measure, he gave practically each and every one of them one or two extra shots to the head.

    There is another video showing the aftermath of the second shooting. You see the wounded looking dazed, and you see family members of the dead sobbing in grief as they embrace the lifeless bodies of their relatives.

    Watching these videos was a profoundly disturbing experience. I had never seen people die like that before. Now I have. There are no words to describe it.

    In my mind thats the danger of the vast pools of money in well intentioned ideas like the medicare program designed for a stable homogenous population. Its essentially a massive honeypot for every operator in the world to hack and scam as they gain entry to The United States via mass immigration.

  29. A non-snarky answer to the title question comes from Wikipedia, which states that SPLC was originally founded “as a law firm originally focused on issues such as fighting poverty. . .”. (Yeah, I know, Wikipedia, but this is probably factual as far as it goes.)

  30. That’s a common sleaze tactic, deliberately using a name easily confused with another.

    Recently there appeared television commercials for a bank outta nowhere named “New Day USA” aimed at military families. The name, especially when heard, bears an uncanny resemblance to “USAA,” which is a century-old banking and insurance institution for military families.

    The new commercials are almost indistinguishable from already existing ones for USAA. In this manner, a company like New Day USA picks up customers who have heard of USAA and its reputation and would normally go there.

The signs are all there: we’ve got a candidate who openly appeals to poor whites, mentioning them by name; a candidate who talks about tech things that smart whites and Asians like; a Harvard admissions scandal seeking to increase Asian admission through one of the key choke points of American ruling class power; a college admissions bribery scandal; we’ve got a resurgence of high quality – traditional and politically incorrect – Asian video games and popular anime among the youth; we’ve got an appeal to populism (with a direct promise of cash payments — a bribe) and moderation on war and Israel……at what point do the full set of diverse Americans ask themselves in relation to their current ruling class, “Is it good for the hues?”

    We can bask in schadenfreude over the founder of the SPLC getting his comeuppance, but on reflection, I find it disturbing. The virus of social justice can take down and destroy anything. An old coot grabs a few butts and addresses female employees as “honey,” then doesn’t promote black employees because they are not, in fact, that quick on the uptake and have annoying chips on their shoulders.

    And the next thing you know, he’s out of the organization he founded, and various SJW committees are set up to spend half a billion dollars, undoubtedly doling it out as consulting fees to other organizations led by SJWs, to give struggle session seminars and whatever, in the endless “full employment for grievance studies majors” program.

    How long can Tucker Carlson last against this? I give him six months.

    O’Sullivan’s Law says, “Any institution that is not explicitly right wing will become left wing over time.” I think the modern formulation is, “Any institution that is not explicitly fascist will be taken over by balck transsexuals and lesbian feminists over time.” Or “Institutions progress in a linear fashion over time to be successively dominated by those with an increasing number of intersectional identities.” The Womens March became dominated by feminists, then black feminists, then antisemitic black feminists, then antisemitic lesbian black feminists, and then trannies eased out real women, and on and on.

    “Another is the question of to what extent China is involved in stirring the pot here. Maybe none, but given that it’s our primary geopolitical rival…”

    1) Question: Is it possible for a multicultural entity to defend the collective interests of all its citizens? I would suspect not. Cubans manipulate republican policy in regards to Cuba; Jews manipulate American foreign policy in regards to Israel; Southern Englishmen helped get us into WWII on the side of the British; and polls show Asians have largely positive views of the Chinese government. When that latter demographic takes over, well…interesting times is the Chinese proverb, right?

    2) The Chinese are remarkably – breathtakingly – incompetent in that regard. Of course, they are experts at hacking and getting their nationals living in the US to pass them secrets, but their domestic propaganda efforts are very minimal, limited mainly to bribing people and collecting dirt on prominent individuals. The NSA, CIA, and FBI are pretty competent at stopping the worst of it, except for computer hacking and the Chinese national stuff. The Russians are somewhat better at the “stirring the pot side” of it. And Israel is miles beyond both in that game.

    You’re missing my point, which is that SJWs can and are taking over all institutions. Don’t let the fact that this particular institution is one you hate let that fact go unnoticed.

    (And SPLC is not going anywhere. Hundreds of millions of dollars that were collecting interest will not be spent by the victors, the envious, bitter, angry low-life SJWs who engineered the coup by simply sending a few emails.)

    I think that any institution that wants to survive has to inoculate itself by adopting rightwing positions that are perceived at beyond the pale by the left, and doing so apologetically. The NRA may be an example, pro-life organizations, transgender realism, etc.

    Simple religion won’t do it as the recent United Methodist conference shows. They are two, maybe three years from being taken over. Even organizations composed of people who don’t particularly like guns, or don’t particularly want to see abortions happening, may need to pretend. To be hated and deplatformed is a form of protection from SJW takeover.

    Mitchum and quite a few others thought former DA Higgins’s dialogue had been taken from wiretaps of conversations between criminals. There are incidents in his other early books indicating that Whitey Bulger having people inside law enforcement was long suspected.

    Higgins defended Gordon Liddy

    Higgins notes, that Acting Assistant Attorney General Henry Petersen, who was prosecuting the Watergate burglars, was naively reporting to Dean on the progress of the case. `With those advantages,’ Higgins observes, `a thoughtful baboon could obstruct justice. For a while.’ […] . Higgins goes to great length explaining how criminal trials operate, and he convinces us that Sirica’s sentencing of Liddy – meant to scare the other Watergate burglars into perhaps copping a plea and cooperating with the investigation – was harsh in the extreme. `… five (years) would’ve done that. The seven to twenty was for getting Sirica (expletive deleted by reviewer) off, seven for doing it, fourteen more for doing it on purpose.’

    Dean’s purport gets more mysterious the more one finds out.

    Higgins’s book On Writing (p. 82) advises “Never tell your reader what your story is about”.

A lot of the Marxist Jew’s hatred for civilization comes out of his own twisted and half-rejected culture — having your own strong and freely embraced culture impedes your ability to subvert others. With Muslims, the non-violent troublemakers are Westerners by residence stuck in Westoxification.
