|The extremism is on the rise.|
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a civil rights group that monitors active hate groups in the United States. The counterintelligence report notes that there are over 1,000 active hate groups.
Did you know that the states of California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and New York have the most active hate groups?
You know the usual suspects: The Neo-Nazis, the Klan, the Nation of Islam and Westboro Baptist Church are the gadflies of hate. But did you know that there's active groups like the Council of Conservative Citizens, the websites, individuals like James David Manning, asshat Colin Flaherty and perennial loser extremist Glenn Frazier Cross (aka Glenn Miller) are just as dangerous.
When the Department of Homeland Security report came out in 2009 stating that the election of the first Black president would rile up the extremists, the conservatives dismissed this as a joke?
The Tea Party believes that "da gubmint" is trying to silence their vocal opposition towards Barack Obama's policies.
Did you know about the situation in Nevada?
We had the Bundy Ranch standoff. A cattle rancher was getting airplay on the racist right blogs. That Guy Who Helped Obama Win was a big cheerleader of this Cliven Bundy. The asshole was blaming the president and the Bureau of Land Management were deliberately trying to take the rancher's cattle.
Then the Overland Park shooting by that perennial extremist.
The conservative media was riling up over the knockout game.
The Republican lawmakers are passing legislation that caters to extremists. They are passing staunchly restrictive laws when it comes gay marriage, welfare, abortions and immigration.
Of course the knockout game is getting major play in the media.
What's your thoughts on the rise in extremism?
