Looks like Mark Potok over at the Southern Poverty Law Center, (SPLC) is at it again with his disingenuous scare mongering.
Oh my! The Militia Boogie-Man is a rising threat! (again)
The radical right grew explosively in 2011, the third such dramatic expansion in as many years. The growth was fueled by superheated fears generated by economic dislocation, a proliferation of demonizing conspiracy theories, the changing racial makeup of America, and the prospect of four more years under a black president who many on the far right view as an enemy to their country.
Same old thing from Potok.
He incorrectly and purposefully groups Neo-Nazi's and racist groups with Constitutional Militias and the Tea Party in an effort to discredit them and create a non-existent fear within the general population.
He has the full backing of the Lame-Stream-Media as well, who are all too eager to lap up his pile of vomit and sensationalize it to homes across the country.
NPR is reporting it. MSNBC is reporting it. Other cogs of the propaganda machine will start reporting it soon enough.
The FBI (Fumbling Bumbling Incompetents) and other Law Enforcement Agencies use the SPLC statistics as an official source as well. What does that tell you?
Meanwhile he conveniently ignores the Muslim threat. Gee, why is that?
How many militia members shot unarmed soldiers in Fort Hood? Oh, wait. That was a Muslim workplace violence incident. Never mind.
How many militia members walked down a street in L.A. randomly shooting at cars? Huh? It was a man yelling "Allahu Akbar" you say? Never mind.
Don't forget those militia members who shot and killed 1 soldier and wounded another at an Arkansas Army recruitment center. Oh, it was a Muslim convert? For sure I thought it was those militia guys. Never mind.
Well how about those racist hate filled militia members who shot and killed 6 Jews in Seattle? Again?! A Muslim?!
I think you see where I am going with this. Is it any wonder the SPLC is referred to as the Socialist Propaganda Lie Center?
If they were honest, they'd understand that the Constitutional Militia is not something to be feared, but a duty to be a part of as required in the 2nd Amendment.
