    US facing surge in rightwing extremists and militias

    • Civil rights report shows 250% rise in 'patriot' groups
    • Economy and media conspiracy theories fuel growth

    The US is facing a surge in anti-government extremist groups and armed militias, driven by deepening hostility on the right to Barack Obama, anger over the economy, and the increasing propagation of conspiracy theories by parts of the mass media such as Fox News.

    The Southern Poverty Law Centre, the US's most prominent civil rights group focused on hate organisations, said in a report that extremist "patriot" groups "came roaring back to life" last year as their number jumped nearly 250% to more than 500 with deepening ties to conservative mainstream politics. <more>

    You know why don't you? It's all about racism. Barack Obama is black, which is why the people who oppose him, oppose him.

    Do you deny this is a factor in some of the more extreme groups?

    I recall that there were a lot of "militias" forming under Clinton. That ended with bloodshed. There's a certain segment of our population, both on the Left and Right, that just goes bonkers when "The Other Side(tm)" is in the Oval Office. Put that together with the White Power idiots, and I'm afraid that there will be blood spilt before this is all over.
