Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center was confronted at Southeastern Louisiana University by concerned students after a lecture on November 8,2006 on diversity and free speech in America. However once Dees himself was asked tough questions, he refused to answer and hid from public view. He had two innocent attendies escorted and asked not to return after asking the tough questions. No reason was given. Dees was heard using profanity toward the person asking the question. All questions were relevant and asked in a respectful manner. The police escorted the innocent attendies out, even though they were acting civil and presented a threat to no one.
