Elizabeth Wright’s excellent piece on the Southern Poverty Law Center gives me a great opportunity to plug one of my all time favorite articles. Published nine years ago by Harpers Magazine, “The Church of Morris Dees” was written by the excellent investigative reporter Ken Silverstein.  Despite his leftist politics, Silverstein’s article has become a strong reference point for right wing critics of the SPLC and has remained online almost entirely due to the efforts of immigration restrictionists and other SPLC-defined “hate groups.”  Those unfamiliar with it should give it a look.
