Remember just a few months ago when Michele Bachmann criticized the Department of Homeland Security for references to danger in growing Right-wing extremism
Wonder what Bachmann has to say about the terrorist hate crime attack by a well known right-wing anti-semitic racist extremist today at the Holocaust Memorial ?
Update - I just called her D.C. office for a statement and the press secretary was not available. - phone number for her D.C. office is - (202) 225-2331
Here is what I had to say on April 23 on my blog The Progressive Electorate
How can Michele Bachmann be calling for anyone's resignation other than her own?
Here's a link to an article on the report about rising rightwing extremism.
Apparently there is a lot of criticism of this report from conservatives. However, aren't these the same folks who are going on socialists witch hunts.
I think this report is very interesting and essentially all it is saying is that we are producing a climate ripe for recruiting new members to extremist groups. It is something that groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center have noticed recently in the rising rates of the southern Latino population being targeted for wage-theft, racial profiling and other forms of discrimination.
"We're talking about a matter of basic human rights here," said SPLC President Richard Cohen. "By allowing this cycle of abuse and discrimination to continue, we're creating an underclass of people who are invisible to justice and undermining our country's fundamental ideals."
What is wrong with the Department of Homeland Security telling us about issues of "homeland security"? I did not get the memo that said the Department of Homeland Security can only monitor foreign threats or domestic threats by foreigners.
****Wow , I don't even think I need to say anything now -btw This is a guy that SPLC knew a lot about *****
****Thanks to Curtis for plug in comments on my diary at Progressive Electorate about helping us out
