I’m happy to see major media coverage of the scandals at Southern Poverty Law Center #SPLC.

But I don’t see any mentioning the allegations against Morris Dees by his family.

So I’ll share screenshots of the reported documents & encourage you to share them.

Buckle up!
#SPLC’s Morris Dees was accused of child abuse.

His stepdaughter, “testified that, in the summer of 1977, Morris attempted to molest her.”
#SPLC’s Morris Dees was accused of spousal abuse in the reported divorce papers.

She feared for her life, he demanded an open marriage, and assaulted her. #MeToo

“He hit her and gave her a busted jaw.”
#SPLC’s Morris Dees was accused of having a sexual relationship with his son’s girlfriend and future wife....

...During a Mother’s Day celebration.

...With his unaware son nearby.
#SPLC’s Morris Dees’ wife “had endured a long series of degrading incidents which evidenced Morris’ voracious and eclectic sexual appetite.”
#SPLC’s Morris Dees was accused of “staging a contest to see who loved him the most or who would do the most for him” between his mistress and his wife.
#SPLC’s Morris Dees “repeatedly bragged...that with his looks and his money he could have any woman he wanted.”
There is NO WAY that #SPLC didn’t know about these allegations.

There is NO WAY that SPLC didn’t know about the more current allegations.

SPLC is corrupt, abusive, deceptive & stretches the meaning of a “non-profit” to the breaking point.

It’s a money-making machine.
#SPLC’s lack of ethics at the top trickled down to its reporting.

This was apparent in its deliberately deceptive character assassinations of those their hyper-partisan & Islamist-friendly allies wanted to destroy for political and ideological reasons.
Ex: #SPLC used to report on the Islamist cult Jammat ul-Fuqra (FuqraFiles.com) as an extremist threat, as late as 2002.

Once SPLC began politically targeting people, it started whitewashing Fuqra & tarring me as an “anti-Muslim extremist” for reporting on Fuqra.
#SPLC’s misleading labeling of myself & others has done permanent damage to our lives.

News sites, etc. regularly refer to SPLC’s slander in its reporting.

And it stays on the Internet forever; inevitably found by potential employers, friends, dates, biz partners & reporters.
EVERY outlet covering #SPLC scandals is obligated to stop referencing this “non-profit” like an unquestionable authority.

If you’re a reporter this, why did it take massive upheaval to get your attention?

Why did you miss this for so damn long?

Don’t you check your sources?
