Southern Poverty Law Center fires co-founder Morris Dees

The Southern Poverty Law Center has fired Morris Dees, the nonprofit civil rights organization's co-founder and former chief litigator.

Dees, 82, co-founded the Montgomery-based organization in 1971.

SPLC President Richard Cohen said in a statement Dees' dismissal was effective on Wednesday, March 13.

"As a civil rights organization, the SPLC is committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and the values we hope to instill in the world," Cohen said in the emailed statement. "When one of our own fails to meet those standards, no matter his or her role in the organization, we take it seriously and must take appropriate action."

2. The SLPC is racist . . .

Not that I'm fans of them exactly (seem more politically-minded than humanity-based as they claim. Everyone on the Right is a hate group, but no one on the Left is *eye roll*).

But, yeah. I think they should stop selling irony meters now. They're just nonfunctional at this point.
