Southern Poverty Law Center Seems To Think Pamela Geller is to Blame For the San Bernadino Jihadist Massacre
From the Intelligencer:
The number of hate groups in the United States is on the rise, according to a study by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Extremist groups in 2015 numbered 892 — up 14 percent from the 784 in 2014, the study claims.
Pennsylvania ranks fifth on the list of states with the most hate groups — 40 in 2015, up from 38 in 2014, according to the center. The top four states on the list are Texas, California, Florida and New York.
The SPLC includes as hate groups neo-Nazi, racist skinhead, neo-Confederate and anti-Muslim groups and the Ku Klux Klan…. Anti-Muslim organizations have been growing more than any other type of extremist group — from 24 in 2014 to 34 in 2015, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center report.
Potok said the growth has been spurred by terrorist attacks and threats from the Islamic State.
Domestic terrorism like the attack in San Bernardino last year during which 14 people were killed by two Muslim extremists are the propaganda work of anti-Muslim ideologues like Pamela Geller, the most visible and flamboyant person in the anti-Muslim movement, and the injection of hatred against Muslims, Potok said.
