Rage on the Right!

One of my favorite websites is the Southern Poverty Law Center.  The site is an invaluable tool in keeping up to date with hate groups and right-wing lunatics.  Some of its content can be quite disconcerting but I like getting my information from an agency that is dedicated to informing the public of the extremist within our midst.  The cable news networks only gives you sound bites and lacks a thorough analysis of just how serious the threats are.  It was reported yesterday that the number of hate groups and militias have grown by 244% during the last year.  Is there any wonder why?

Commentators like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh use demagoguery to play on people’s fears instead of their reasoning abilities.  The health care debate is a perfect example of this.  The Right uses words like government takeover, socialism, and fascism.  The absurdity of it all is that Socialism and Fascism have absolutely nothing to do with one another.  Glen Beck even goes as far to say that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is setting up concentration camps to imprison ordinary law abiding citizens.  It doesn’t take much to appeal to the stupidity of the American public.

I think that Americans of all political persuasions have a right to be concerned about the state of the union.  The soaring deficits, high unemployment, and the two ongoing wars are enough to give us all pause.  The problem is how we manifest those concerns.  Those of us on the Left and Moderates  look to responsible legislation and leadership to steer us in the right direction.  Those on the extreme Right are displaying actions that the Homeland Security Department’s report of last year warned us about.  The changing demographics of our country is nothing to be feared.  It should be embraced as the principles that this country was founded upon.  Hating someone or a group of people is just plain wrong and anti-American.

I am really getting sick and tired of hearing how Barack Obama is the first black president.  I never heard of the first 43 presidents being referred to as white presidents.  The truth of the matter is that President Obama has already cut taxes for 95% of Americans and gets no credit for it.  He has almost single handedly prevented the second great depression.  He is about to bring our troops home from Iraq.  But the party of no that he is bailing out continues to paint him as the anti-Christ.  It’s enough to make me want to pull my dick out and piss on the haters.

There is something called the truth!  And Americans need to start recognizing just what that is.  You cannot blame Obama for the mess that he has inherited. He is doing his best to rectify the situation.  If you want to join a hate group because of what your people did, then be my guest.  This current president like Martin Luther King, Jr. will lead us to the promised land.  If, only given the chance.  What will you hate then?

Political Shocker for Florida Hate Group!

You’ve got to love the Southern Poverty Law Center.  They do such a good job of identifying and posting hate groups across America that people like me, who hate “hate groups,” have an easy time of keeping up with the sleazebags and their activities.  However, if you’re a budding young Adolph or have your eyes set on becoming an imperial wizard, you’ve got the fucking yellow pages at your fingertips.   I was thinking about starting a hate group of my own against other hate groups but I didn’t want to end up on their website.  http://www.splcenter.org/intel/map/hate.jsp  Click the link to track groups across the country.

Anyway, Lwhit sent me a link today to a Florida based hate group called the Nationalist Coalition.  http://www.ncoal.com/   As I read the About Us section on their website, it was very apparently clear that this group has major issues with Jews.  These are the type of people that go to church and refer to Jesus Christ as “That One” because he was Jewish.  As I quickly bored with their nonsensical rhetoric I set out to find the Jews that they thought controlled the world.  And in a stunning development, I have found the said group.

But before I reveal this group I just want to say that I hope the economy starts to turn around very quickly.  Several high profile hate group leaders have indicated that as the economy continues to slide downward, interest in these groups begin to rise.  The last thing I want to see is a bunch of rednecks riding around in pickup trucks toting shotguns while suffering through Budweiser withdrawal.  We don’t need any synagogues or black churches defaced with swastikas and the “N” word.

It’s a shame that in the year 2009 that there are still rocks which these groups operate under. So without further ado, I present the Jews that rule the world:

grumpy-old-men

 

Meet from left to right:  Anath, Batyah, Eyal, and Moshe.  They determine the fate of the free world every morning over coffee and bagels.  I was not allowed to publish their last names or location in fear that I may find myself inside a Hamas tunnel.

White supremacists target middle America!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

White supremacists target middle America
The white-power movement is changing its marketing strategy to broaden its appeal.

The USA’s largest neo-Nazi group is ditching its trademark brown Nazi uniform with swastika armband for a more muted look in black fatigues.

In Pennsylvania, the Keystone State Skinheads is changing its name to Keystone United to attract members.

The nation’s largest white-power website, Stormfront, has a new feature that lets members create social-networking pages. The site has had as many as 42,700 unique visitors in a 24-hour period this month, a steady rise since it started in 1995.

Supremacist groups are on the rise as they market themselves to middle America, according to leaders of the groups and organizations that monitor them. They are fueled by the debate over illegal immigration and a struggling economy.

“Many white supremacist groups are going more mainstream,” says Jack Levin, a Northeastern University criminologist who studies hate crime. “They are eliminating the sheets and armbands. … The groups realize if they want to be attractive to middle-class types, they need to look middle-class.”

Levin estimates fewer than 50,000 people are members of white supremacist groups, but he says their influence is growing with a more sophisticated approach.

From 2006 to 2007, the number of such groups rose by 5% to 888, says the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which tracks them through news reports and other sources. The number is up 48% since 2000.

The FBI knows of about 24 domestic terrorist groups. Spokesman Richard Kolko would not say how many are white supremacists.

Jeff Schoep, head of the National Socialist Movement, says the government classifies his group as a domestic group of interest, not domestic terrorists. The FBI would not comment.

Interest in the group “has really spiked up,” says Schoep, who would not say by how much.

“Historically, when times get tough in our nation, that’s how movements like ours gain a foothold,” he says. “When the economy suffers, people are looking for answers. … We are the answer for white people.

“And now this immigrant thing in the past couple of years has been the biggest boon to us,” Schoep says. “The immigration issue is the biggest problem we’re facing because it’s changing the face of our country. We see stuff in English and Spanish. … They are turning our country into a Third World ghetto.”

The National Socialist Movement is the largest neo-Nazi group in the USA, according to the SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League, which works to fight bigotry. The NSM has chapters in 38 states, its website says.

Mark Potok, director of the SPLC’s Intelligence Project, says the debate over immigration has led to a rise in hate groups.

In Pennsylvania, where the Hispanic population increased by 41% from 2000 through 2007, Keystone United has been busy.

Members distribute fliers calling on residents to fight crime they say is committed by illegal immigrants, gangs and drug dealers. In September, members joined a rally against illegal immigration in Shenandoah that was organized after four white teens were arrested in connection with the beating death of a Latino illegal immigrant.

“A lot of these small working-class towns are being invaded by different types of people,” says Douglas Myers, one of Keystone United’s founders. He says the group speaks out for the rights of whites being pushed aside by newcomers.

“It appears they are tapping into and fanning the flames of mainstream America’s fear of immigrants,” says Ann Van Dyke of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. “They are increasingly using the language of Main Street, things like, ‘We want safe communities to raise our children.’ “

Myers says the group is organizing family-friendly activities, rejecting the violence that made skinheads notorious. For example, they plan gatherings in public libraries.

“It’s not the footage from the ’80s with people burning crosses. It’s a very healthy environment,” Myers, 26, says.

The renewed activity includes a boom on the Internet, says Don Black, creator of the Stormfront website. The site has 144,000 registered members.

“Many people in this country, even if they were upset with the country’s immigration policies, never felt that threatened until now,” Black, 55, says. “White people were the majority. That’s rapidly changing.”

Black says the candidacy of Barack Obama has raised his site’s profile.

In the past year, members have posted 337 entries on Stormfront related to Obama, ranging from whether an Obama victory will start a revolution among whites to whether the candidate will take away gun rights.

Black’s son, Derek, 19, was elected to the Palm Beach County, Fla., Republican committee in August. Local Republican leaders are trying to unseat him after learning of his white supremacist ties.

Don Black, once a Ku Klux Klan leader in Alabama, says he’s encouraged by the enthusiasm he sees.

“We see a lot of people coming out of the woodwork,” he says.

Hate Groups and the Possible Demise of Their Ideology!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center each of the following states has hate groups and the map indicates the number of groups within each state.  California had the most hate groups whereas 4 states have none.  The center compiles it lists from websites, hate group publications, citizen and police reports, field sources, and television reports. 

According to several media outlets like the Washington Post, New York Times, and the New York Post interest in these groups have seen an exponential increase in hits to their websites since Barack Obama secured the Democratic nomination for president.  The SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League estimate that across the nation that there are 200,000 people actively involved in these hate groups.  Why is this dangerous?

An Associated press report states that these white supremacists if Obama was elected would trigger what they consider a long overdue racial backlash.  David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan was quoted as saying “A black man in the White House would serve as a ‘visual aide’ to bring others around to the supremacists’ view that whites have lost control of America.”

The Washington Post reports they fear that Obama represents the end of “white rule” and the beginning of “multiculturalism.”  They fear that he will promote affirmative action, support illegal immigration and help render whites “the new minority.”   These groups also despise John McCain for what they consider to be his soft stance on immigration and his support or the war in Iraq.  Who says there is no equal opportunity hate?

The paradox of an Obama win might be an increase in recruitment for these sleaze groups but it would also signify the defeat of their racist ideology!

 

update:  I am aware that it is hard to read the comments and I am working on it. If you roll your mouse over like you were about to cut, the letters turn white and the comment is easy to read.
