Disturbing article BBC, about US extremism
BBC News - US 'hate groups' bolstered by Obama's election
Thought this might be interesting, particularly to people living in the US. Again, like the last BBC article I posted, it isn't particularly positive, and it probably involves quite a generalization.
But is the general picture accurate? Obviously, many outside the US see the tea party and Sarah Palin etc as a manifestation of what is discussed in the article. Is it disappointing for fiscal conservatives that such groups have hijacked and contradicted their 'common sense' position? And why, and how, do you get rid of such nuttiness - is the problem taking your religion too seriously?

"We are seeing a resurgence in hate groups because we are seeing democratic activity and empowered citizens who are not Anglo-Saxon Protestants.
I like this quote, I think the biggest indicator of equality, if you can accept those people when their empowered or when they authority over you.

Interesting! Imagine if Obama had a Jewish VP. Did that contribute to Al Gore losing-- Joe Lieberman being Jewish? America did a horrible thing with blacks. They brought them here against their will and made them property like a dog.
