This is horseshit. I think Morris Dees is a faker. I like the stuff that Ken Silverstein did in Counterpunch (for which Cockburn inevitably got credit) exposing him as a poseur. I got accused of being soft on racism for writing in LBO and on several e-lists that "the militias" were not the gang of crypto-fasicsts that a lot of leftists were denouncing them as. Ask Charles Brown about this.
