Posted on 06/29/2010 7:38:30 AM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
Its time once again for some more left-wing hand wringing over the supposed rise of "white militias" in the era of Obama. This time it is the blather of Metro Columnist Courtland Milloy claiming that white-based hate groups have increased substantially because we have a black president. Milloy also rails about the "racial double standard" in evidence because no one is all that upset about this business. If it were black racists increasing their militia activities because of a white president, Milloy gravely writes, why the whole country would be alarmed.
Milloy isn't the only denizen of the Old Media to make the claim that white hate groups are increasing, though. It has been an occasional claim by a dozen or so journalists since Obama's inauguration. But is it true? Are white hate groups increasing? And is it because Obama became president? Who says so, anyway?
There is one source that each of these stories relies upon to prove that white militias and hate groups have increased under Obama. That source is the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC claims that hate groups have increased to over 900 under Obama...

It beats working for a living!
All the hate is on the left. They probably are mostly white groups, though. White liberals with a guilt complex.
- Brady Bunch/VPC
- ad nauseum
They must be refering to and basing this on the G8/G20 meeting in Toronto, where the vast majority of those LEFTWING extremistidiots were of the caucasian persuasion..../s =.=
Why shouldn’t they? Editors keep publishing (and paying for) them over and over and over again.
So much leftist drivel.
If you change your definition of hate group then anyone who disagrees with Glorious Leader can be a hate group. Seriously though there has been a recalibration by the left on what is a hate group. Tea Partiers would fit into that grouping but the Black Panthers or Weather Underground do not.
It’s their SOS trying to deflect from their own hatred!
SPLC = self serving, lawyer agitators
lol black racist columnist supports black hate groups.
I’ve been hearing about Right Wing Militias for twenty years and they never called to ask me to join.
Does anyone believe in what the poverty/racial pimps say anymore? Racism smacism...
“If it were black racists increasing their militia activities because of a white president, Milloy gravely writes, why the whole country would be alarmed. “
Yeah, those Black Panthers in Filthadelphia, you know the ones who intimidated voters and whose cases were thrown out by Eric Holder are not a threat.
Black hate groups are defined as, “Organized community social groups”.
Facts only make liberals more hateful...
Gee wasn’t it Obama’s DOJ that just gave the black panthers a pass on voter intimidation in PA? I guess the Black Panters aren’t a black racists group anymore?*eyeroll*
Exactly! Obama gives those black hate groups the cover of authority!
