Southern Poverty Law Center: Hate On The Rise Because Obama Is In The White House

Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) president Richard Cohen responded to the Charleston, South Carolina church shooting by saying that hate groups are on the rise because President Obama is a black man in the White House.

Cohen’s official statement on the June 17 massacre at Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church called the shooting “an obvious hate crime by someone who feels threatened by our country’s changing demographics and the increasing prominence of African Americans in public life.”
But apparently President Obama’s election had something to do with it according to the SPLC, a decidedly leftwing nonprofit legal advocacy group.

“Since 2000, we’ve seen an increase in the number of hate groups in our country – groups that vilify others on the basis of characteristics such as race or ethnicity,” Cohen said. “Though the numbers have gone down somewhat in the last two years, they are still at historically high levels.”

“The increase has been driven by a backlash to the country’s increasing racial diversity, an increase symbolized for many, by the presence of an African American in the White House,” Cohen stated.

Cohen then downplayed the threat of Islamic terror.

“Since 9/11, our country has been fixated on the threat of Jihadi terrorism. But the horrific tragedy at the Emmanuel AME reminds us that the threat of homegrown domestic terrorism is very real.”

He's a fraud. Not his color.

Here we go again Obama is hated and despised because he is a Islamic Socialist that has taken this once grate country and turned it in to the most divisive nation it has ever been, everything this Ass has done is to pit one group of Americans against each other, civil unrest is what him and the Socialist are wanting so they can take over America !

He almost got it right. The hate is rising 'Because of 0bama and his agenda coming from the white house'!

       VERY TRUE !!

S.P.L.C like the  Klan is made up of Democrats 

Yet to see any negative comments against the radical Muslims/Islamic extremists from the SPLC or the Muslim Brotherhood. Wonder why?

I absolutely agree that hate is on the rise because Obama is in the White House and that he and Holder are primarily responsible for that rise. He had the opportunity to bring us closer together instead he has deliberately driven us apart based on race, religion, sexual preference and anything else that helps him further drive the wedge between societal groups. This is classic Cloward & Piven, classic Alinski. It is all part of him "transforming" America - but not into what the idiots who voted for him thought would be the transformation. As a result, the poor black population is even worse off than before he was elected, as is the middle class as more and more socialism is creeping into our everyday life due to Obama and his policies. He must be impeached but Congress is spineless. We The People must find a way to force an impeachment and the sooner the better.

agreed.  You said it very well.  How he can get away with more fraud and deception than

any president in our history is baffling to me also.  Acts that would have gotten almost any

presiden timpeached are simply passed over and not acted upon.  I can not believe what

is going on in Washington DC either.  He has as much Irish in him as I do so it is not

because of race that I say this either.   It is time for us to listen to Mark Levin and do a

purge of the spineless republicans that shake in their boots and will not act.   We need

action and we are not getting it from republican leadership and  many democrats have

finally dared to oppose him on fast track trade only to have the anti labor republican

mainstream support the guy  That also is baffling to me.  The republicans truly are

bipartisan.  The trade agreement screws labor and mainstream republicans want to screw

labor.  That will be their demise as was the anti gun, pro LGBT, roll over and play dead

foreign policy, and pro abortion on demand nationwide as was injected intentionally into

the ACA(Obama care), was not as helpful to them as they thought it would be.    I am not

represented by any party in Washington DC.  I would like to have a spot on the ballot that

says "NONE OF THE ABOVE". Then if none of the above wins, the two parties are not\

allowed to field a candidate and the election is held again, or the office remains empty

for the duration of that election cycle.  The people of this nation are truly being screwed

to death by both parties.  Just one man's opinion.

The White House & the current admin. has gone out of their way to fan the flames of racism....Starting with the Cambridge police and almost every incident where a black person is hurt or killed by a white person..If more people in the Obama administration acted like the very Christian members of the Emmanuel AME this country would be a more peaceful land.

Right on.

Liberals will never understand the concept that people can be against someone's ideology or actions and it have nothing to do with race, sexual preference, or religion.  Unfortunately that is always the only argument they can argue.

Kenneth,  Liberals understand all right but they find that using such tactics as the race card, the sexual preference card , etc works very effectively to institute their Marxist/Communist/islamist agenda........it is really quite simple.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
