The jagoffs at Southern Poverty Law Center – a race and class-baiting organization that practices very little law but spends an inordinate amount of time mugging for the cameras – have produced a study saying hate groups are on the rise in the US.
They also include “militia groups” and those “against the government,” – an act Joe McCarthy would have been proud of.
The number of groups whose ideology is organized against specific racial, religious, sexual or other characteristics has risen steadily since 2000, when 602 were identified, the center said. Antigay groups, for example, have risen to 27 from 17 in 2010.
The report also described a “stunning” rise in the number of groups it identifies as part of the so-called patriot and militia movements, whose ideologies include deep distrust of the federal government.
As for the “hate” groups, this is the law of unintended consequences at play again (see, law. they should study it at slpc). If the media and the government are pushing an agenda at the populous which we know to be false or misleading, we get testy. We push back. Having Bush parrot “The Saudis are our friends” at every juncture only served to make him look like a liar to his base. I myself have written about how disingenuous it is to cater to the needs of gay kids getting bullied, all the while ignoring all the other wretches who have to deal with it. If some animals are more equal than others, then the barnyard will revolt.
I can’t say I’m surprised at the anti-government groups. Under Bush, there were subversives aplenty, and now they’re of a different stripe because we have a commie-in-chief. But here’s the part that tells the true tale of the Southern Poverty Law Center:
The Occupy movement is not on the list because its participants as a collective do not meet the center’s criteria for an extremist group, he said.
Not terribly shocking, considering SPLC is a huge advocate for and backer of the Occupy movement. They would hardly want to include themselves on a list of extremist groups, would they?
By the way, the Tea Party? None of that. Ever.
