The Washington Post runs a long article about how, while the SPLC is trustworthy, co-founder Morris Dees was actually a white male and therefore had to go.

Years of turmoil and complaints led the Southern Poverty Law Center to fire its founder Morris Dees
By Neena Satija, Wesley Lowery and Beth Reinhard April 5 at 5:22 PM

… “Why is he still here?” Costello said she asked Cohen, an exchange she documented that day in an email to a colleague. “People see him as racist and sexist.”

“Or an anachronism,” Cohen responded, according to Costello. “That would be kinder.”

Dees, 82, was fired last month for unspecified misconduct, igniting a rush of speculation about what had come between him and the organization he built into a legal and fundraising behemoth. The nonprofit said that Dees had acted in ways that did not reflect “the mission of the organization.”

Internal documents reviewed by The Post, along with interviews with current and former employees, suggest that the celebrated civil rights organization had been bitterly at odds with its founder for several years. Those battles have centered on his refusal to retire, his behavior toward women and his comments regarding race, according to the documents, the employees and Dees himself.

In a series of emails and an interview with The Post, Dees, who is white, strenuously denied any racist or sexist behavior and said he was not fired for misconduct.

“I built the Southern Poverty Law Center out of nothing,” Dees said in an interview last week in Montgomery, where he lives and the SPLC is based. “This stuff that they’re after me about is just total crap.”

Interestingly, the Washington Post can’t come up with any smoking guns against Morris.

Part of their problem is that they don’t want to report basic facts, like that Morris has been divorced four or five times. To be divorced by one wife could be a misunderstanding, but to be divorced by four or five wives bespeaks of … well, something reflecting on the basic credibility of the SPLC. It’s almost as if Morris is less the greatest moral authority of our time than a junk mail genius who hit upon a great grift. Perhaps they are worried that readers might wonder why the Post has been quoting the SPLC as an unbiased oracle for all these years …

The anecdotes in this article are mostly like this:

In late 2017, the organization investigated a complaint from a female employee about Dees’s behavior after a fundraising event in Atlanta. Dees said that at a social gathering, he approached the woman, put his hand on her shoulder and asked her about a visible tattoo on her arm. He said that, after she asked if he had any tattoos, he pointed to the front of his clothed right thigh, where he said he had one.

Okay … well, how is Morris going to find Wife #6 if he doesn’t flirt with women? It sounds like she got creeped out that, briefly intrigued by the prospect of becoming the Widow Dees, she flirted back with an octogenarian.

… And they brought up two allegations of racially insensitive comments.

The first of those complaints concerned remarks Dees had allegedly made about black voter turnout. According to Dees, a senior employee complained that he had said low black voter turnout in Montgomery ensured no black candidate would be elected mayor. He said he could not recall making the remarks ascribed to him….

Never complain about low black voter turnout. White men are not allowed to say anything complaining about blacks, including: Gee, it would be nice if blacks would vote more.

The other complaint that the board members brought up, Dees said, stemmed from a lunch in 2015 with Don Terry, a journalist who at the time was a senior writer for the nonprofit. According to Dees, the men were discussing a recent car accident, and he remarked that he had heard black teenagers in Montgomery are more likely to run red lights.

Dees emailed Terry later about a study he’d found online showing that black drivers were not more likely to violate traffic laws.

“I stand corrected,” Dees wrote.

“Thank you for being open-minded about my challenge,” Terry, who is black, wrote back.

Hey, Morris, it is not too late to come over to the pro-science side.

… The nonprofit has promised that change is underway. It has hired Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, to review its “workplace culture and its past practices and policies.”

Tina Tchen … where else have we heard that name lately?

And on Tuesday, board member Karen Baynes-Dunning, a black woman and former juvenile court judge, was named interim president to succeed Cohen.

Certainly, Morris had it coming … Yet, still, he was a giant at what he did and the people pushing him out are dwarves. I will miss Morris:

  1. Mr. Dees has done a great job of fighting white supremacy in the South and all across the U.S.
    Death to White Nationalism.

    BTW, Jared Taylor has been banned from Europe. That is great. A black person from Angola can go and visit his White Baby Mama in Germany but this so called “Huwhite Nationalist” can not even enter Europe. LOL.

    If this does end up as a “blacks in charge” black takeover of $50 billion, it’s going to be hilarious. Oh my. Huge salaries for black managers who do nothing, companies owned by relatives getting big noncompetitive contracts, bribes, indecipherable accounting.

    People complain about their not spending their money, but honestly, what the hell have they ever done that has required a lot of funding? They run a website along the lines of Media Matters, but shoddier. Do they sue anyone? I’ve never heard of it. Are web companies paying them for their vetting and censorship lists, and if so, will they continue to do so after Dees is out and black corruption seeps in? It’s not that easy to honestly get rid of $50 billion in the name of “anti-racism.”

    @MikeatMikedotMike

    Satija seems to be a name belonging to a 'scheduled caste', which is "the official name given to the lower castes that are now protected by the [Indian] government and offered special concessions."

  5. For example, he said, the organization’s counsel called him early this year to ask if he [Dees] had hugged a woman at one of the center’s legal retreats.

    “But the reality is that you [Dees] made a young woman feel uncomfortable, and she complained to a supervisor.”

    “Morris made overtures to women who worked for him,” said Deb Ellis, one of the first female lawyers hired by the center who worked there from 1984 to 1986. She recalled that one morning she came into work to find a Victoria’s Secret catalogue on her desk, with a note from Dees on top saying, “Maybe your boyfriend would like to order something for you.”

    Jessamine Starr, the daughter of Dees’s ex-wife Susan Starr, said she once heard Dees use the phrase “colored people time” when referring to people who were late. She added that given the era and the place he grew up in, “that would be a normal thing to say.”

    Sounds like a lot of low level stuff.

    Crusader types, e.g. MLK, Ghandi, often aren’t much for personal virtue.

    For that matter, they should have arranged for a White supremacist type to gun down Dees. There would have been orgiastic hosannas for weeks, and statues erected across the land. Plus lots of fundraising.

  6. This is the most BS metoo I’ve seen yet. Why did the legal team lady and Cohen bail out too if it’s just about Morris being randy and saying a few very mildly politically incorrect things?

To have an old white guy at its head is not just démodé, well, it's almost degenerate, and an obvious point of leverage, and there is that huge endowment. What to do? Hmm.

    In my experience, blacks tend to have a harder time obeying all laws, including traffic laws,
     
    Number 1 complaint of Blacks in Ferguson post-Michael Brown was the courts and their dealing with tickets Blacks didn't have the money to pay, which resulted in suspensions of DLs, more fees, more fines and yet more of everything when they got caught driving while suspended or revoked for unpaid fines and fees. That was a major reported source of system-hate for large numbers of Blacks in that period down there. Of course, everyone ELSE has to do what it takes to keep a license, but Blacks, you know, it's a tough one. If they were smarter about it, they'd index fines to income. Maybe they do now, although cities love their ticket revenue.
  14. “Those battles have focused on his refusal to retire . . .”

    Ah hah! NOW we’re getting somewhere! Retire old white man so we can get the sweet, sweet monies ourselves.

    “Or an anachronism, that would be kinder”

    “Morris Dees, the state has found you, Obsolete.”

    I see the scene in Enemy at the Gates in my mind where Khrushchev confronts a Russian General:

    “I have to report this to The Boss.”

    (Places a loaded pistol on the desk in front of the General)

    “Perhaps you’d prefer to avoid the red tape.”

  15. “I built the Southern Poverty Law Center out of white guilt,” Dees said in an interview last week in Montgomery, where he lives and the SPLC is based.

    Also, do we actually know that the five wives divorced him? He didn’t divorce a single one of them himself?

    Black voter turnout

    Devil’s advocate says: might not this be related, in part, to felony disenfranchisement?

    Just thoughts.

  20. “Or an anachronism,” Cohen responded, according to Costello. “That would be kinder.”

    So an old white goy like Dees is an “anachronism” but and old leftist Jew like Dick Cohen is not.

    Not to defend race traitor Mo Dees (alleged to have some Jewish blood), but this sounds like a coup and power grab by younger Jews and woke non-whites working at the SPLC who want to take it in an even more radical direction. Not unlike the insurgency in the Democrat party by younger woke browns and blacks against elderly Jews and their elderly shabbos goys like Pelosi.

  21. Fired at 82? Hilarious. Guy should have been gone years ago, playing with his grandkids, working in the garden. People have gone nuts trying to work forever, I don’t get it. Of course, in a sane Republic, Dees would’ve been imprisoned, or deported, years ago for the damage he did to our nation.

    A.D., I feel this is an indication of the more wholesome culture we’ve left behind, and the sick one we’ve inherited (or had foisted upon us).

    Being a lying grifter has always conferred some kind of advantage in every society, but only recently in America has it become a reliable pathway to stratospheric wealth and influence. The type of (low) character such a path requires—lots of self-regard but zero self-respect—seems to be at the base of our celebrity culture, and maybe of our elite fininacial institutions too.

    On the other hand, America once stood apart from other societies in history as the place where an instinct to be honest and decent was not a liability that made you vulnerable to predation, but could be the foundation for a comfortable life. Now, by contrast, the culture actively seeks to punish “common decency,” and views you as a chump for honestly observing the law, extending courtesies, and paying your taxes.

    you get what you deserve.

  39. a complaint from a female employee about Dees’s behavior after a fundraising event in Atlanta. Dees said that at a social gathering, he approached the woman, put his hand on her shoulder and asked her about a visible tattoo on her arm. He said that, after she asked if he had any tattoos, he pointed to the front of his clothed right thigh, where he said he had one.

    I think this deserves to be carefully parsed so that old white guys such as Joe Biden and myself know how to behave in the future. Which acts constituted the #MeToo violation? Touching her shoulder? Asking about the visible tattoo? Pointing out the location of his tattoos? Being an icky old man and daring to speak to a woman 1/3 of his age in perhaps a mildly flirtatious way?

    Michael Douglas is 25 years older than his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. Mickey Rourke apparently had a fling with Evan Rachel Wood while making a movie with her in which she played his daughter, I think he is around 30 years older.

    Jack, It's the shoulders. Apparently we never knew they were an erogenous zone. Don't think the tattoo had anything to do with it ,after all, if you have a visible tat don't you expect people to notice, and maybe comment? So, I will mention again...bleached,dyed, or tinted hair, plucked, shaped or even tattooed eyebrows over eyes with eye shadow and mascara or false lashes or now, mink fur exetnsions, foundation make-up and blush on the cheeks, bizarre color lipstick on cosmetically enhanced pouty lips, bras that lift, shape and separate, every body hair shaved or lasered off, spike heels to give height and tone the calves, blouses cut down to there and skirts up to almost there and you have the nerve to comment or notice?

    Seriously? The man is 82 years-old.

    There are many ways a rich 82 year-old can get a young girlfriend. The world's oldest profession, along with its modern Sugar Baby variants, provide more than enough outlets. What got Dees in trouble was that he thought he had swagger, so he could be entitled and weird about it. Yep, an 82 year-old being physically forward with a twenty- or thirty-something in a social setting is weird.

    Does the 40-something paramour no longer cut it? Do Boomers legitimately think this stuff is normal?

  40. It sounds like she got creeped out that, briefly intrigued by the prospect of becoming the Widow Dees, she flirted back with an octogenarian.

    Although this can be either overcome or exacerbated by cultural factors, I think that there is a biological factor: just as almost any 25 year old male would be repulsed by the thought of sexual relations with an 82 year old woman, vice versa is true also, but to a somewhat lesser extent (reflecting the fact that males remain fertile until a greater age and that male attractiveness is not just physical but also partly based on suitability as a provider). This repulsion comes from a deep place in women’s lizard brains, but such deep seated feelings are often rationalized to be something completely different (but that fits within the cultural ethos of the time) as they work their way up to our higher human functions of verbalization.

Dees is defended by some and referred to as a “great man” who either stayed to long or lost his way.

    Obviously women do this stuff to get attention from males but they only want attention from the RIGHT sort of males. This is the great unsolved problem of femininity - how do you attract the attention of the men you want to attract without attracting the attention of the others? The female solution to this is to reshape the society so that UNWANTED advances are punished. This leads to a conundrum - advances can only be known to be wanted or unwanted in retrospect.

    But, OTOH, an 82 year old man should know that most 25 year olds would not welcome his advances. The point of MeToo -ism is to raise the stakes on advances that are probably going to be unwanted, so that only men who already know that they are desirable dare to take notice. In the past, a playa like Morris could take the "nothing ventured, nothing gained" approach but women don't want to have to deal with old creepy guys anymore and now they have the power to punish them suitably for their effrontery and to send a message to other creeps - not just old men but betas of all kinds - HANDS OFF!

  49. OT: I found this beautiful piece of prose.

    https://medium.com/@thefatshadow/maralard-ss-and-the-lefts-fat-problem-4dc57c498252

    #MarALard*ss and the Left’s Fat Problem
    Progressives’ point of gleeful ignorance might also be our Achilles’ heel

    It started on Sunday morning. Jon Cooper, Chairman of the Democratic Coalition, called his 239,000 followers to tweet using the hashtag #MarALardass. By the end of the day, the hashtag was a trending topic on twitter, replete with an endless stream of fat jokes.

    I sat at my laptop, a lifelong fat person and a lifelong progressive, watching it all unfold. My stomach sank, turning in on itself, as thousands of anti-Trump tweets targeted him not for his racism, xenophobia, transphobia, ableism, misogyny, proud history of sexual assault, destructive policies, bold power grabs, or the vast and serious harms he’s causing in communities across the country and around the world. Instead, they posted pictures of his belly, his buttocks, his double chin. Photographs that didn’t look fat enough were enhanced to look even fatter. One person after the next — people with equality and ally in their twitter bios — took aim not at Trump’s actions, but at his body.

    Unsettled, I went to bed, hoping for deep sleep, but finding little of it. My night was restless, my sleep light, and what little dreams I had swirled around the wave of angry responses I knew would follow.

    And they did. I woke up the next morning to hundreds of twitter notifications, angry replies from fellow progressives incensed at being asked to consider the collateral damage of their insults. The initial tweets were troubling, but when fat people (including me) called for critiques more substantive than “he’s fat,” many responses became dismissive, aggravated, aggressive. We’re hitting him where it hurts. This is how we get to him. He needs a taste of his own medicine. Some turned speculative. You’re probably just some Republican troll anyway. Only a Trump employee would defend him this way. Who made you the PC police?

    I love the title. One more ephemeral round of impotent twitter jokes about Trump, which this time target his weight ass and the author inveighs about the ‘Left’s Fat Problem’. I don’t know what’s funnier that the author doesn’t realise that half the things she just accused Trump of he isn’t actually guilty of or that he never would have come close to victory if people like her hadn’t themselves prioritised nonsense over actual opposition to the grinding down of the working and middle classes. The author can’t even bare to criticise Trump for any right-wing economic policies!

    But yes, it’s their onerous ‘fatphobia’ that will doom the left…

    I sat at my keyboard, feeling despondent, powerless, exhausted and perplexed in equal measure.

    Now you know how the real left and Bernie supporters felt when your kind went on a deranged neo-con witch hunt for ‘Russian collusion’.

    Thanks (I think) for sharing that dreadful but all too common bit. The anti Trump hysteria of the cultural left is something to behold. As you note she actually has no substantive complaints about Trump. Her list of his sins is just a list of aesthetic and attitudinal positions that disturb her, along with a few contentless accusations that he does unspecified bad things. It's all about her feelings.

    When confronted with this sort of thing I enjoy pointing out that Trump hasn't actually done much of anything. Sometimes people will mention taxes and judges but then I just note that Bush would have done the same with a Republican Congress, so how is this the Apocalypse?

    Now I’ll give credit where it’s due — Dees is obviously one smart cookie as evidenced by his ability to read the zeitgeist and turn it into mountains of cash.

    But at the end of the day, what does he have? He lives with the knowledge he’s a fraud. He married five gold-digging whores. It’s an empty life.

    I don’t think “noticing” had anything to do with Morris harassing that girl.

    He harassed her because he was really horny and had trouble controlling his libido.

    Unfortunately for Morris, he’s ugly due to his advanced age. So she rejected him harshly.

  67. As a mental exercise, let’s consider the parallels between Dees/SPLC and Bernie Madoff:

    *Controlled for many years by a single dominant personality
    *Opaque financial details released
    *Audited by small accounting firms
    *Jewish affinity
    *Overwhelmingly positive press for years, but with a few lonely dissenters raising questions
    *Alleged financial returns varied, but never showed negative annual returns
    *Madoff: massive financial fraud; SPLC: ???

    Here’s an interesting bit from Wikipedia on Madoff:

    Mitchell Zuckoff, professor of journalism at Boston University and author of Ponzi’s Scheme: The True Story of a Financial Legend, says that “the 5% payout rule”, a federal law requiring private foundations to pay out 5% of their funds each year, allowed Madoff’s Ponzi scheme to go undetected for a long period since he managed money mainly for charities. Zuckoff notes, “For every $1 billion in foundation investment, Madoff was effectively on the hook for about $50 million in withdrawals a year. If he was not making real investments, at that rate the principal would last 20 years. By targeting charities, Madoff could avoid the threat of sudden or unexpected withdrawals.

    (Note that the SPLC is not subject to a 5% payout rule, so while Madoff’s scheme in principle could have lasted 20 years, a similar scheme in principle at the SPLC could last a much longer time.)

    There was a news item last year or two ago about the "SPLC" moving much of its money overseas, perhaps to some Carribbean hidey-hole.

    The alleged move could be a distraction to keep a Madoff-type situation running for a little longer. This would also explain the close involvement of a Clinton bagwoman. The Clintons have a sixth sense for Southern scams and would naturally expect to be cut in (or muscle in all by themselves).

    @Jack D

    a complaint from a female employee about Dees’s behavior after a fundraising event in Atlanta. Dees said that at a social gathering, he approached the woman, put his hand on her shoulder and asked her about a visible tattoo on her arm. He said that, after she asked if he had any tattoos, he pointed to the front of his clothed right thigh, where he said he had one.
     
    I think this deserves to be carefully parsed so that old white guys such as Joe Biden and myself know how to behave in the future. Which acts constituted the #MeToo violation? Touching her shoulder? Asking about the visible tattoo? Pointing out the location of his tattoos? Being an icky old man and daring to speak to a woman 1/3 of his age in perhaps a mildly flirtatious way?

    In the past, being wealthy or famous (as Pres. Trump so famously observed) was usually sufficient to overcome the ick factor - Hugh Hefner was still bedding babes although he was practically in diapers and was WELL past the icky stage (Morris Dees seems to be pretty well preserved for a man of his age). Hefner BTW picked the right time to die - he meetoo day of reckoning could not have been far off. But clearly the rules have changed. At what age should men no longer approach females under 30 due to their inherent ickyness, even if they are wealthy and powerful? 40? 35? What is the absolute cutoff before you are a "creepy old man"?

    Hitting on sexy 25 year olds may not be safe for old guys, and not just because of the risk of metooing or heart attack:

    Jurors reached a partial verdict after four days of deliberating the fate of Philip Esformes in one of the biggest such cases in U.S. history. Jurors were undecided on six additional counts, but prosecutors accepted the verdict rather than send them back for further deliberations.

    The wealthy Miami Beach businessman operated a network of nursing homes and assisted living facilities in South Florida.

    “Beside the fact that they’re anti-mental health and anti-black, they’re probably anti-Jew because I’m an ordained rabbi,” Esformes said Thursday. “If it was up to the mayor, he would have lily-white geriatrics knitting all day. The world isn’t like that.”

    Hundreds of migrants shut down Greek train station and clash with cops as they try to reopen a land route to Germany in uprising fuelled by social media

    [MORE]

    Greece on Friday urged hundreds of migrants and refugees who have gathered in a field close to the country’s northern border to return to their housing settlements, otherwise they could face sanctions.

    Small groups of people including children arrived at a field next to the migrant camp of Diavata near the border with North Macedonia on Thursday.

    By Friday morning there were more than 100 tents pitched in the field, prompted by reports on social media of plans for an organised movement to cross Greece’s northwest land border with Albania in early April.

    In Athens, a group of about 50 migrants squatted on the tracks of the capital’s main railway station shouting ‘Germany!’ and ‘Open the borders.’ Several more were at the station under heavy police presence.

    Services from the station were suspended.

    ‘We want to go to Thessaloniki and then to the borders,’ said Amin Omar, a 27-year-old Iraqi Kurd sitting on the tracks. ‘We don’t know if they are open.’

    Greek Migration Minister Dimitris Vitsas appealed to the migrants at the border to return to the accommodation centres.

    ‘It’s a lie that the borders will open,’ he told Greek state television ERT. ‘In international treaties, there are obligations but there are also sanctions’.

    Police parked buses across a road in the area to block an access route.

    Tens of thousands of refugees and migrants, mainly from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, are stuck in Greece from when Balkan countries shut their borders in 2016. That route was the main passage way to northern Europe.

    Vitsas said he hoped those in the field would leave by night.

    https://medium.com/@thefatshadow/maralard-ss-and-the-lefts-fat-problem-4dc57c498252

    #MarALard*ss and the Left’s Fat Problem
    Progressives’ point of gleeful ignorance might also be our Achilles’ heel


    It started on Sunday morning. Jon Cooper, Chairman of the Democratic Coalition, called his 239,000 followers to tweet using the hashtag #MarALardass. By the end of the day, the hashtag was a trending topic on twitter, replete with an endless stream of fat jokes.

    ...

    I sat at my laptop, a lifelong fat person and a lifelong progressive, watching it all unfold. My stomach sank, turning in on itself, as thousands of anti-Trump tweets targeted him not for his racism, xenophobia, transphobia, ableism, misogyny, proud history of sexual assault, destructive policies, bold power grabs, or the vast and serious harms he’s causing in communities across the country and around the world. Instead, they posted pictures of his belly, his buttocks, his double chin. Photographs that didn’t look fat enough were enhanced to look even fatter. One person after the next — people with equality and ally in their twitter bios — took aim not at Trump’s actions, but at his body.

    Unsettled, I went to bed, hoping for deep sleep, but finding little of it. My night was restless, my sleep light, and what little dreams I had swirled around the wave of angry responses I knew would follow.

    And they did. I woke up the next morning to hundreds of twitter notifications, angry replies from fellow progressives incensed at being asked to consider the collateral damage of their insults. The initial tweets were troubling, but when fat people (including me) called for critiques more substantive than “he’s fat,” many responses became dismissive, aggravated, aggressive. We’re hitting him where it hurts. This is how we get to him. He needs a taste of his own medicine. Some turned speculative. You’re probably just some Republican troll anyway. Only a Trump employee would defend him this way. Who made you the PC police?
     
    I love the title. One more ephemeral round of impotent twitter jokes about Trump, which this time target his weight ass and the author inveighs about the 'Left's Fat Problem'. I don't know what's funnier that the author doesn't realise that half the things she just accused Trump of he isn't actually guilty of or that he never would have come close to victory if people like her hadn't themselves prioritised nonsense over actual opposition to the grinding down of the working and middle classes. The author can't even bare to criticise Trump for any right-wing economic policies!

    But yes, it's their onerous 'fatphobia' that will doom the left...

    I sat at my keyboard, feeling despondent, powerless, exhausted and perplexed in equal measure.

     

    Now you know how the real left and Bernie supporters felt when your kind went on a deranged neo-con witch hunt for 'Russian collusion'.

    Replies: @Fabian Forge

    Thanks (I think) for sharing that dreadful but all too common bit. The anti Trump hysteria of the cultural left is something to behold. As you note she actually has no substantive complaints about Trump. Her list of his sins is just a list of aesthetic and attitudinal positions that disturb her, along with a few contentless accusations that he does unspecified bad things. It’s all about her feelings.

    When confronted with this sort of thing I enjoy pointing out that Trump hasn’t actually done much of anything. Sometimes people will mention taxes and judges but then I just note that Bush would have done the same with a Republican Congress, so how is this the Apocalypse?

  89. Of course the real problem here with Morris Dees, Charlie Rose, Harvey Weinstein, and all those other old fat fugly creeps is that where age and/or a shitty lifestyle used to slow you down quite significantly in your erogenous zone, these guys now have Cialis and Viagra to artificially keep them, um, humming along.

    Once upon a time an 80 y.o. who hit on a much younger woman would’ve just been a charming dirty old man. He wouldn’t know what to do with you if he got you in the sack. Now these sad old creeps actually may be packing real heat down there. So for a young woman the creep factor has grown by like a billion.

    *Controlled for many years by a single dominant personality
    *Opaque financial details released
    *Audited by small accounting firms
    *Jewish affinity
    *Overwhelmingly positive press for years, but with a few lonely dissenters raising questions
    *Alleged financial returns varied, but never showed negative annual returns
    *Madoff: massive financial fraud; SPLC: ???

    Here’s an interesting bit from Wikipedia on Madoff:


    Mitchell Zuckoff, professor of journalism at Boston University and author of Ponzi's Scheme: The True Story of a Financial Legend, says that "the 5% payout rule", a federal law requiring private foundations to pay out 5% of their funds each year, allowed Madoff's Ponzi scheme to go undetected for a long period since he managed money mainly for charities. Zuckoff notes, "For every $1 billion in foundation investment, Madoff was effectively on the hook for about $50 million in withdrawals a year. If he was not making real investments, at that rate the principal would last 20 years. By targeting charities, Madoff could avoid the threat of sudden or unexpected withdrawals.

    (Note that the SPLC is not subject to a 5% payout rule, so while Madoff’s scheme in principle could have lasted 20 years, a similar scheme in principle at the SPLC could last a much longer time.)

    There was a news item last year or two ago about the “SPLC” moving much of its money overseas, perhaps to some Carribbean hidey-hole.

    The alleged move could be a distraction to keep a Madoff-type situation running for a little longer. This would also explain the close involvement of a Clinton bagwoman. The Clintons have a sixth sense for Southern scams and would naturally expect to be cut in (or muscle in all by themselves).

    The following excerpt from an interview a few months ago with Richard Cohen is quite … cinematic. Is it true?

    1. Cohen and Dees were, as recently as 1986, appointed as special U.S. attorneys?

    2. They had a consent decree with two “KKK” members (in the mid-1980s) that prevented the “KKK” from operatating a “private army.”

    3. The Grand Poobah of the “KKK” went to ground, ended up in Kansas, and killed three Jewish-looking guys.

    4. There was a plot to blow up the SPLC building. (The plot to blow up the building occurred just as the SPLC was planning a new HQ building.)

    5. The Grand Poobah put up a “bounty” on Dees and had his “army” stake out the home of an affiliated attorney waiting for Dees and Cohen, who were apparently in a bolt hole, to show up so they could kill them.

    Cohen: In the first summer that I was here in 1986, Morris [Dees] and I were appointed as special U.S. attorneys to prosecute two Klansmen for contempt of court. What had happened was we had secured a consent decree with them basically saying they could not operate a private army. This was a guy named Glenn Miller. He later killed two or three people in Overland Park, Kansas. None of the people he killed were Jewish, but he thought they were.

    We didn’t know this at the time, but while we were trying the case, they had actually staked out the home of our local counsel, intending to kill us if we showed up. Glenn Miller went underground and declared war on the country and offered a bounty on Morris’s head. Then some of his people were arrested in connection with the plot to blow up our building. So being involved in a case with people like that was scary and memorable.

    Then be mediocre. Maybe the greatest privilege of all is the privilege to be mediocre. Work just as much as you need to pay your bills. Don't buy stuff you don't want just to impress people you don't know. Spend your life doing what makes you happy.

    You are off by 2 orders of magnitude. $500,000,000 is a lot of money already, but $50,000,000,000 is a small-country GDP type number.

    In my experience, blacks tend to have a harder time obeying all laws, including traffic laws, and the most likely explanation is their relatively high time preference and low IQ.

    Anyway, curse WaPo for making me sympathize with this evil man.

    In my experience, blacks tend to have a harder time obeying all laws, including traffic laws,

    Number 1 complaint of Blacks in Ferguson post-Michael Brown was the courts and their dealing with tickets Blacks didn’t have the money to pay, which resulted in suspensions of DLs, more fees, more fines and yet more of everything when they got caught driving while suspended or revoked for unpaid fines and fees. That was a major reported source of system-hate for large numbers of Blacks in that period down there. Of course, everyone ELSE has to do what it takes to keep a license, but Blacks, you know, it’s a tough one. If they were smarter about it, they’d index fines to income. Maybe they do now, although cities love their ticket revenue.

  105. Meh, they’ll hand it over to Blacks and women of color, who will consume the seed corn, but further solicitations for ‘donations’ won’t be forthcoming once the new agenda becomes obvious. By that time, up-North Liberal Jews will have noticed that Blacks have noticed that Jews are Super Whites. The entire rainbow that takes over SPLC will be vocal about their hatred of Whites and Jews and their money from those two groups will dry up quickly. Somewhere along the way, Jews will notice that they eliminated the only race that felt an obligation to protect them. And they’ll be shredded by the races that remain.

    Schadenfreude.
