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.

Democrat Disaster! 53% Of Black Voters, 60% Of Other Minorities Say Liberal Media Trying To Help Democrats Impeach Trump

Thanks to President Donald Trump ALL Americans now know the mainstream fake-news media is an extension of the Democrat Party.

In a recent poll a majority of black voters and minority voters say the media is trying to help Democrats impeach President Trump.

And half of FOX News too, by the way.

CNS News reported:

Both black voters and other minority voters are more convinced than white voters that most reporters are trying to help impeach President Donald Trump, rather than report the news fairly – with a majority of each of the three groups holding that view – a new Rasmussen Reports survey reveals.

In the national voter survey, conducted November 12-13, 53% of all voters said most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump:

“When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”:

“Help impeach President Trump”: 53%
“Block his impeachment”: 8%
Report “news in an unbiased an unbiased manner”: 32%

But, 53% of black voters and 60% of other minorities, compared to 51% of whites, said reporters are trying to get Trump rather than report the news fairly.
