White supremacist Web forum's members have killed close to 100 people

Written by Featured Organization on Monday, 21 April 2014 15:35.

Nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by active users of the leading racist website, Stormfront, according to a report released today by the SPLC’s Intelligence Project. Registered Stormfront users have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most lethal hate crimes and mass killings since the web forum became the first hate site on the Internet in 1995, a month before the Oklahoma City bombing. The report found that hate killings by Stormfront members began to accelerate rapidly in early 2009, when Barack Obama took office as the nation’s first black president.

Harry Reid Got It Right: Koch Brothers Are Un-American

Written by Peter Grear on Tuesday, 08 April 2014 21:31.

Recently, Kathleen Parker, a widely read, conservative columnist challenged Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid’s characterization of the Koch Brothers as un-American and suggested that Reid owed the Koch Brothers and the American people an apology. She attributes such characterization as being rooted in the Koch Brothers, “support for unfetteredmarkets or their willingness to fund positions that might favor them.” As Joe Scarborough previously, she’s another conservative that ignores the fact that the Koch Brothers are mega donors in voter suppression campaigns all over America.
