"Obama Used as Tool For Hate Groups"



Please check out this video from CNN and this article from the Southern Poverty Law Center. They are both pretty interesting and a lot more shocking than those Drunken Negro head cookies. Here's an excerpt from the article that I found particularly disturbing, especially since I haven't heard anything about these incidents in the news:

Now, these groups have begun to turn their attention to Obama – distributing racist propaganda, filling Internet message boards with threats and messages of hate, and, in some cases, taking more direct action against minorities. Here is a sampling of racial incidents reported in the wake of the election:

  • Police in Riverside County, California, said five attacks on minorities were likely related to the election and were believed to have been carried out by a local white supremacist gang.
  • In Shreveport, La., a black man wearing an Obama T-shirt was brutally beaten by a group of white men screaming "f--k Obama" and "n-----r president." The attack left the man with a broken nose, broken eye socket and broken tear duct, requiring multiple surgeries.
  • In Springfield, Mass., a black church was burned hours after the election was called for Obama. Authorities later arrested three white men.
  • In Staten Island, N.Y., a black teen was bloodied and bruised by two white teens who shouted "Obama" while pummeling him with a bat and pipe.
  • In Rexburg, Idaho, second- and third-graders on a school bus chanted "assassinate Obama."
  • In Torrance, Calif., swastikas and racial slurs were spray-painted on homes and cars of people who displayed Obama signs or bumper stickers.
  • In Milwaukee, a poster of Obama with a bullet going through his head was discovered in a police station.
  • In Maine, a sign at a convenience store invited customers to join a betting pool on when Obama would be assassinated. The sign said, "Let's hope we have a winner."
What do you think about this video and article? Did you know anything about these incidents?

This is horrible and disgraceful to believe that people would behave in such a matter producing hatred towards one another over the color of one skin!!! Wow to think, we have bigger things to worry about such as a cure for cancer, the economy, and a new season for the Detroit lions! This is a reflection of ignorance of mankind where a man is mocked and ridiculed not by his action, his decorum, his decision making abilities, but based on how God made a decided that we were designed genetically different and are not identical twins. One day man would be judged not on his appearances, but on his capabilities
