American Undercurrents of Hate Threaten First Lady

July 15, 2012

The Washington Post (July 12, 2012) is reporting that a Washington, D.C. Police officer has made a “credible” threat to shoot First Lady Michelle Obama. The threat is considered credible because this particular officer, whose identity has not yet been revealed, has served as an armed motorcycle escort for Ms. Obama on a number of occasions… 

This should be remarkable all by itself. But, given current events, where almost half of America lives in the past and harbors racial resentments, handed down through generations, hatred is a conditioned reflex. Hatred is a very powerful emotion that trumps all logic and common sense.  Hatred is a tool to command a group of people to do the bidding of political and religious leaders.  Hitler used it for years to eliminate Jews. Hatred can convince anyone that a radical or violent action is justifiable.  The KKK and racist organizations are convinced that “if you can’t control ’em, then kill ’em”.

Michelle Obama Threatened? Secret Service investigating allegedly threatening comments about first lady  July 13, 2012 (WASHINGTON) — There are conflicting reports about threatening comments a police officer may have made about first lady Michelle Obama, the District of Columbia police chief said Friday.

Michelle Obama Threat: D.C. Police Officer Allegedly Said He’d Shoot First Lady, Report Says (UPDATED)  The officer has been moved to administrative duty as the incident is being investigated, according to the Post.

MPD Chief Cathy Lanier told WRC-TV/NBC4: “There is conflicting information about what the officer said. … Internal Affairs will get to the bottom of it.”

During an appearance Friday morning on News Channel 8’s “NewsTalk With Bruce DePuyt,” D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said he hoped that the allegations turned out to be false, noting the current investigations by the MPD and Secret Service into the incident.  “There’s no room for jokes or frivolity when you’re dealing with the first family,” Gray said.  On Friday, WRC-TV reported that “additional officers may be disciplined” in the incident.

What agenda would be fulfilled by harming First Lady Michelle Obama? How would inflicting harm onto a member of President Obama’s family achieve any satisfaction for a Hate Group?  Bragging rights?  Inflicting fear is the most powerful weapon a Hate Group can wield, because honesty and virtue are not scary enough. WIKI: According to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), hate groups’ “primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin which differs from that of the members of the organization.”[1]

Does America’s law enforcement and military services really harbor an undercurrent of hatred for the presence of a black first family?  This is a disturbing issue that indicates bigotry and racial hatred has only gone underground and not been healed. Hate groups abound in America, just choose who you want to hate, there’s a group for it.  Here in Texas there are 45 confirmed Hate Groups, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.  Texas has the fourth largest assembly of Hate Groups in America.  The first state with the most Hate Groups is California with 84.  The next two states are Florida and Mississippi.

Obviously, Robert Kennedy was prescient in his vision, for exactly 40 years later, the Age of Obama began. It’s also clear that we may be on the verge of a new age of political terrorism. The hatred of Obama and all that he represents runs deep into the very soul of this country. There are those who have determined that his presence, his family’s presence, in the White House is simply unacceptable and will do everything – anything – to remove the blot he represents on the “American” self-image.

When politicians cater to these Hate Groups, it gives credibility to Bigots and Supremicists: 

Criticism Grows of Texas Governor’s Hate Group-Sponsored Rally

Texas Governor Rick Perry And The Hate Group

In 2008: Houston is haven for hate groups  – Texas has helped fuel a significant spike in the number of U.S. hate groups since 2000.   A closer look at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Year in Hate” report released Monday shows that 67 hate groups operated in Texas last year, the second largest number in the country. Given the state’s size, it’s not surprising we’d come in behind California, which had 80 hate groups.

Houston had 10, tied with Chicago in the unenviable position as the city with the most in the nation.

The SPLC says 888 hate groups operated in the U.S. last year, a 48 percent increase since 2000. The watchdog group says southern border states, including Texas, contributed to the big jump. But the headline-grabbing explanation for the proliferation of these groups is anti-immigrant rhetoric.

“Hate groups continue to successfully exploit the immigration debate to their advantage, even though the immigration issue has largely disappeared from the presidential debate,” said Mark Potok, editor of the SPLC’s Intelligence Report, an investigative journal that monitors extremist groups. “The fact is that they’ve been aided and abetted by mainstream pundits and politicians who give these haters a platform for their propaganda.”

The SPLC says hate groups “have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” It determined its hate group list by examining the organizations’ publications and Web sites, law enforcement reports, field sources and news reports. According to the SPLC:

According to The SPLC two states have only one Hate Group each.  Vermont and Rhode Island are the most welcoming of America’s states.  The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the anti-immigrant hate group behind draconian immigration enforcement laws in Arizona, Alabama and elsewhere, appears to have misled law enforcement officers about a training program it’s sponsoring in Texas, Hatewatch has learned.
