SPLC Hit With Devastating Lawsuit
In December 2018, Baltimore lawyer Glen Keith Allen filed a lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) after allegedly being targeted with false accusations of racism, according to PJ Media.
In August 2016, the SPLC published an article branding Allen a “neo-Nazi lawyer” and insinuating that his work for the city of Baltimore was racist. The article got him fired, costing him at least 10 years of employment, and destroyed his reputation. In an interview with The Washington Post that month, the SPLC admitted to having watched Allen “like a hawk” because he had “the worst ideas ever created.”
“This East Europe Communist thought-crime surveillance mentality is antithetical to fundamental American cultural and Constitutional principles protecting freedom of expression and association,” Allen wrote in the suit.
