Report Warns Of Rise In Militia Groups Across U.S...Poor economy, Black President,,Root Causes
CBS ^ | 8/11/09 | Some Commie

Posted on 08/12/2009 7:18:37 PM PDT by pissant

Militia groups with gripes against the government are regrouping across the country and could grow rapidly, according to an organization that tracks such trends.

The stress of a poor economy and a liberal administration led by a black president are among the causes for the recent rise, the report from the Southern Poverty Law Center says. Conspiracy theories about a secret Mexican plan to reclaim the Southwest are also growing amid the public debate about illegal immigration.

Bart McEntire, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, told SPLC researchers that this is the most growth he's seen in more than a decade.

"All it's lacking is a spark," McEntire said in the report.

Having a marxist fraud pretending to be president is the main cause. The more militias the better. Keep the reds from mischief.

When Eric Holder turned the New Black Panther Party terrorist team loose he sent a strong message to not only them but to other militias.

Mayhap there should be some kind of warning (to the Obama administration), considering the amount of weapons and ammunition sold since the election. ;-)

Don't you just want to puke at the notion that they throw the "black president" in there as one of their reasons for a growth in militias. It makes me sick that these scummies will use the race card for each and every time it suits them.

I've no more a racist bone in my body than the man-in-the-moon....yet anyone that disagrees with this commie/closet-muzzie is auto-branded a racist because he's the black fella. It's laughable anymore...just laughable.

I’ve been hearing this effeminate sounding idiot from the SPLC on the radio all day. He also blasted Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for fighting crime and reducing the crime rate in Maricopa County. Joe has made it tough for criminals these days and this has caused these girlymen to become upset. These leftist girlymen from the SPLC need to take a hike. They are a bunch of lefty losers.

You forgot the part about the marxist fraud pretending to be president lying, cheating, bullying, and denying responsibility.

Oh I forgot......he inherited this dissent. But did he pay the inheritance tax on that? lol

The President’s color has nothing to do with it for many of us...absolutely nothing. His decisions and what comes out of his mouth impunes him. His philosophy/beliefs and rank hypocrisy remove all demonstration of respect for him. Quit playing the race card. I dislike Rahm Emmanuel more than I do Obama. Am I racist because of that? Sonia Sotomayor is the worst pick for Supreme Court that has ever occurred in the history of this nation, topping the worthless appointment of Thurgood Marshall to the court. Am I a racist for saying so? I dare someone on here to say so. Go ahead...try.

Too many vitiations against contracts, including one called the Constitution of the United States. The people who truly run this country are tiring, if not contemptuous, of the outsiders who have not a clue what it means to be free, independent, hardworking, prosperous, and happy. Those outsiders have, by force of intimidation and unseemly persuasion, taken upon themselves a strange endeavor contrary to truth. They will pay dearly politically, and possibly by more than intimidation.

Are they joking? Doesn’t La Raza announce this desire openly from the podium during their race-a-palooza events where they demonize whitey and Omoslem gives a speech promising amnesty for illegals?

Morris Dees of SPLC has done very, very well for himself financially because of his “handling” of SPLC affairs. Very well indeed. Not bad for a head of a “non-profit” scam.

The SLPC is a leftist organization that sees white racism behind every protest against the socialist agenda of the democrats. If you are a white gun owning Christian who wants smaller and less intrusive government you are a member of a secret Klan according to the SLPC.

We fought the Southern Poverty Law Center for years in our local school district. The schools were utilizing SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance series. All it taught was that capitalism is bad, socialism-communism is good, and whitey is the cause of all of the world’s problems. We only succeeded in removing the program from the schools when it was discovered that one of the facilitators had an arrest record. They had a huge push after 911 teaching the kids that America is intolerant and basically deserved the events of that day. The material handed out in the classrooms had a picture of a young (white) child in a KKK get up and went on about oppression of Muslims in the USA. In other words the SPLC is still spreading its lies.

You know, in Brasil this is normal speech. It's not hateful, it's how you describe someone in a sea of colors.

I still call my wife "minha morena", asa more of a sensual reference, despite the description of her color.

Only the insecure or hate filled socialists consider it "racists".

The sooner we are rid of the racist socialist, the better for the safety of my family.

I'm so sick of the liberal exploitation of race. This is a conservative forum, and I have absolutely no doubt that the people here would wildly support anyone, irrespective of race or gender, if they felt confidant that they would work hard to decrease the size of government and to preserve individual liberty. People don't dislike Obama because of race issues. They dislike Obama because he is a socialist / wealth redistribution radical who does not respect individual liberty. Trying to make this about anything else is disingenuous.

“and whitey is the cause of all of the world’s problems”

I remember a few years ago when SPLC bowed to pressure and added the Nation of Islam to their list of hate groups. The addition of the NOI came with a long, rambling disclaimer on how all “minority” groups that had a “hateful” message were “forced” to do so in response to white racism and that it really wasn’t their fault.

Boy these LIBS don't miss a beat, do they?

Soooo interesting that this report should be issued now that the pressure is being ratcheted up on Congress, greater than ever before, by so many millions of average Americans who have NEVER demonstrated or protested about ANYTHING.

You cant make this up. Theyre scared crap-less, apparantly...

All we conservatives want is color-blind society where people are judged by their actions and character. Liberals prefer to be blinded by color.
