‘Alphabet Hemlock Soup’ By Ray McCoy

For many Americans the acronyms just roll off the tongue – the NAACP, GLAAD, ADL, SPLC, and at times the actual meaning behind those names doesn’t come to mind. Similarly, these organizations have each in similar ways experienced mission creep. The original purpose of their formation to defend or promote the interests of a vulnerable group has morphed into the asset truly valued by the rich and powerful: a civic institution with major financial and social cachet.

The groups that are examined here all had noble goals that carried them through troubled times, but after they met that summit a natural question was raised: Where to now? For these organizations the allure of influence, wealth and prestige has corrupted the legacies of their forebears, but it didn’t happen all at once.
