    SPLC Special Report: After virtually disappearing from public view a decade ago, the antigovernment militia movement is surging across the country – fueled by fears of a black president, the changing demographics of the country and fringe conspiracy theories increasingly spread by mainstream figures.

    I read SPLC report, the first 2/3 in detail and then scanned over the rest. The basic gist is "federal agents good, organized resistance to the Obama administration bad."

    It's really little more than a hit piece and has little to no citations for their factual assertions; they do get some of it right but only in part. I certainly agree that there are some radical criminal elements that have attached themselves to the anti-statist movement, and they should be dealt with and prosecuted for any real crimes, but the authors really just gloss over the real issues of contention.

    Race may have something to do with it for a small minority, but it is in no way prevalent despite the assertions of the SPLC and other useful idiots of the statist currently in power. They do get one thing right, there is a lot of anger out there, but just don't get why; not that I expected anything less.

    I was introduced to Southern Poverty Law Center when we were fighting the "It's a Crime, Bill." The "Poverty" is in their intelligence. They never met a "control the peasants" rule they didn't automatically support.

    The militias only show up when Progressive Democrats are in control of the White House and the Congress. Like mushrooms after a rain. Question, when was the last time a State chartered militia attacked anyone?

    The SPLC always screams that everything is because of racism:rolleyes: They are all for more gov't control over the people. SPLC can kiss my Southern a**:mad::mad::mad: I mean really, how many of the people involved with the SOUTHERN Poverty Law Center are actually SOUTHERN? They all sound like New England or California liberals to me:rolleyes: I agree, when WAS the last time one of these "militia" groups attacked in an organized manner? And when was the last time that the federal gov't attacked someone in an organized manner? When was the last time the federal gov't and the puppet "fair and impartial" media attacked and demonized those who disagree? To be perfectly honest, I'd trust most of these "dangerous right-wing extremist militias" more than I'd trust the federal gov't.

    Oh dear, I guess I'm on more of the watchlists now:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I wouldn't worry about it bcj...............I think the 'watchlists' have grown beyond their ability to watch. And I would venture a guess that even those who would be 'watching' are now closing one eye.

    It's beginning to look like big brother has run into a bigger brother.

    I went to the sight and have decided I do not like this group of people. They have a hate map showing the number of hate groups in each state. They hate Lou Dobbs. I figure it will only be a matter of time before Lou ends up on Fox News.

    I did find out that Ravenswood WV, my home town, has a KKK chapter. Came as a surprise to me. There are only between 3000 and 4000 people at the most in Ravenswood and I didn't think anything went on there without it being known across the whole county. Perhaps I should get out more?

    The SPLC can just dig a hole and jump in it. I'll fill it in for them.

    What a bunch of hypocrites, you go on their site and one of the first things you see is their magazine called "Teaching Tolerance". What a load of load of crap. Sure they're real "tolerant" as long as you're a leftist. I've been watching these jerks for years.

    I don't like Obama and it has nothing to do with his color.

    I don't like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy or Harry Reid.

    You might say I'm an Anti-Liberal type of guy.

    I had heard about this the first part of the week on XM radio. As I recall, the research and report was made by the NAACP. Go figure.:rolleyes:

    What the liberals are trying to do is create a racial devide.

    The problem with that is there are black and latino groups forming in hte urban regions, who would rather shoot at UN peace keepers, than whitie.

    Yeah, that is the last thing I need; so wack job from either an inner city or the east or west coast telling me what to do. This is Kansas, where some us still think we are in the wild west. Leave us rednecks alone.

    It's called, "looking for any excuse whatsoever" to disarm the public, the law abiding ones.

    So concerned are they about a few fringe individuals (who probably aren't so fringe - they're just constitutional), rather than being concerned about those whizzing all over the constitution - as in Obama and nearly every member of congress (except Ron Paul). They all need to go. They had their chance.

    They just confirmed one of the most anti- 2nd amendment judges in the history of the supreme court. Unbe-freakin-lievable. Every republican who confirmed her should be thrown out of office, and of course, every democrat too.

    Any of them who have voted for ANY tax increase or ANY increase in spending, while they've been in office, whether for 2 years or decades, should be thrown out. ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!! :mad:
