Racist death threats against Obama rise

They say that opposition from the right quarters means you are doing a great job. If that's so, the following story must mean that Obama is hitting them out of the park.

Secret Service Strains as Threats against Leaders Rises

WASHINGTON - The unprecedented number of death threats against President Obama, a rise in racist hate groups, and a new wave of antigovernment fervor threaten to overwhelm the US Secret Service, according to government officials and reports, raising new questions about the 144-year-old agency’s overall mission.

The Secret Service is tracking a far broader range of possible threats to the nation’s leaders, the officials said, even as it also investigates financial crimes such as counterfeiting as part of its original mandate.

The new demands are leading some officials, both inside and outside the agency, to raise the possibility of the service curtailing or dropping its role in fighting financial crime to focus more on protecting leaders and their families from assassination attempts and thwarting terrorist plots aimed at high-profile events.

“If there were an evaluation of the service’s two missions, it might be determined that it is ineffective . . . to conduct its protection mission and investigate financial crimes,’’ according to a inter nal report issued in August by the Congressional Research Service.

The report, which was provided to the Globe, said such a review should look at how money and staff are allocated, and whether some of the agency’s functions and workers should be transferred to the Treasury Department.

“This is a discussion going on not only in some quarters in Congress, but inside the Secret Service. Should there be a re-look at the mission?’’ said a government official, who like others was not authorized to speak publicly about security matters or reveal details about the number or nature of the threats.

Already, there are signs of strain on the agency, officials said. Budget documents submitted to Congress this year said the agency lacks the necessary technology to keep up with threats.

“The network and mainframe system used today struggles to support basic operations,’’ the agency said, requesting an additional $33 million over last year for computers and other information technology.

Asked about the concerns, Special Agent Edwin Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman, said that though “there is no doubt the protection mission has grown,’’ the agency can still fulfill both its missions.

The financial crimes mission remains robust as well, he added, citing some recent large seizures of counterfeit currency.

The Secret Service, long under the Treasury Department but now part of the Department of Homeland Security, was established in 1865 to thwart counterfeiting, a focus that has expanded to include a host of electronic and financial crimes.

Its mission soon expanded to investigating the Ku Klux Klan and conducting counterespionage operations during the Spanish-American War and World War I.

The job of protecting presidents started in 1894 with Grover Cleveland, who was guarded part time. That role expanded after the assassination of William McKinley in 1901, and it became a crime to threaten the president in 1917. Today, guarding the president and other top officials accounts for most of the Secret Service’s budget, which totals about $1.4 billion per year and continues to grow.Continued...

*********************

The rise in racism in the GOP (see the racist buttons distributed during the Texas Republican Convention last year) is an interesting "coincidence" as well.

Has the party of Lincoln been replaced by the party of the Klan?

Reagan Made People "comfortable with their prejudices again"

"There seems to be a resurgence of racism," said Cooper, "and there are those who feel they can get away with it because of their perception of this Administration. There is no question that there is a perception that the Reagan Administration has not done much for minorities."




People look to the White House for some sense of what is acceptable, what is right. "Although I can't say Reagan made kids behave the way they did at Howard Beach," says Roger Wilkins, senior research fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, "whites get the message that the leader of this country, the moral beacon, is saying it's all right to be racist." That judgment was considerably exaggerated, but it nonetheless remains true that any sign of indifference means that the beast is free to prowl.

entire story



Republican Anti-Hispanic Racism Rears It's Ugly Head

Republican Congressman Joe Wilson is the tip of the iceberg as Republican racism rears its ugly head to expose hatred of Hispanics in America — not just undocumented Hispanics but all Hispanics.

Republicans in Washington and across America fear growth of the Hispanic community in America because Hispanic growth will become pivotal in electing the President of the United States, members of congress, state legislators and local officials across America.

"This will bring about the demise of the Republican Party for Republicans long ago cut off their noses to spite their faces. This vitriolic anti-Hispanic rhetoric was at its height with the 2006-2007 Immigration Reform debate in the U.S. Senate. Hispanics will never forget the racism spewed forth on Hispanics by Senators Sessions, Kyl, Hutchinson, Cornyn and others," states Jon Garrido.

"Hispanic News was the number 1 news source covering the 2006-2007 Senate debate on passage of Immigration Reform when Republican senators attacked the Hispanic community using vitriolic anti-Hispanic rhetoric and forever more, Hispanic News will remember this anti-Hispanic bashing and will remind American Hispanics to work for the end of the Republican Party."

"The future is already written. Some day not to far in the future, all elected officials in America will be Hispanic Democrats."

Garrido adds, "The only other national party may be a new 3rd party: The American Hispanic Party if Democrats fail to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform in 2010. We will not wait until 2011."

Re: Racist death threats against Obama rise

It's totally disgusting. Put one very educated black man in the highest office of the land and the low IQ racists come out in droves. Like cockroaches out of the woodwork.


And we thought it only bad in the south?

I agree... There is ignorance everywhere and sadly, it will probably never be eradicated.

But I ask again, what did the main article have to do with the GOP or the Republican party? I didn't read anywhere in that article that the source of these threats are coming from the GOP....

Wow... Nice links.. One is 22 years old and by Time Magazine, the other 2 articles are from sources I never even heard off.

Did you ever hear the saying "On the internet, you can find the sources to be right on anything."

You just proved that saying....

There is another saying: "When barraged by facts, impugn the sources"

Thanks for proving that one still has life.

He has outed the violent, antiamerican racists that infect every part of the nation. At least this way the FBI can now keep an eye on them.

Not really. I don't think it was a common trait of all those presidents who stumped at Bob Jones U when they were campaigning.

What hatred from the south? I've lived in the South 28 years, and most of the hatred still comes from whites towards anyone of color, ANY color than white.

I'm white, I notice these things.
