Group Found Hate, Extremism ‘Exploded’ in 2010 – HSToday

In a new examination of extremism that focused only on the extremism of the “radical right in America,” the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reported this week that “for the second year in a row,” the “radical right … expanded explosively in 2010, driven by resentment over the changing racial demographics of the country, frustration over the government’s handling of the economy and the mainstreaming of conspiracy theories and other demonizing propaganda aimed at various minorities.”

SPLC said it found that “for many on the radical right, [their] anger is focusing on President Obama, who is seen as embodying everything that’s wrong with the country.”
