Description

The article's position is critical of Morris Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Center. In the article Dees is called, "The Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker of the civil rights movement," and portrayed as "nothing if not a good salesman." It draws into question the SPLC's fund raising techniques and fervor: "Today, the SPLC's treasury bulges with $120 million, and it spends twice as much on fund raising -- $5.76 million -- as it does on legal sevices for victims of civil rights abuses." Dees personal salary is also drawn into question.
