I don't care much for those Occupy folks, either... but there are some clear examples of conservative folks around here who might agree with that sign, seeing as they post up threads about their hatred of cops... so I guess they have something in common.

Nope never said that. I am simply showing that white supremacists are NOT right wing. They are in a a group all their own and even on the verge of anarchists.

What can be done to counteract them?

Well, I think it's fairly obvious that federal anti-terrorism tools must be envoked against them immediately. The Patriot Act must be utilized whenever possible, along with the Military Commissions Act and the NDAA. We must re-elect our president and re-attain Democratic congressional majorities in order to be certain that our leadership will crack down on these various extremist organizations. If martial law is what it takes, then so be it--under the right circumstances, I would trust our leadership to do the right thing.

Obama 2012!!!

You personally can redefine these terms all you want, but it does not and will not change the definition which is most generally accepted in our society.

We have our crazies on the liberal side, but the white supremacists are YOURS.

They are neo-Nazi's that at one time wanted to overthrow the government. That is not right wing.

I think some on this thread need to learn the history of the KKK they were DEMOCRATS not Republicans. They wanted to KEEP the slaves, the Republicans wanted to FREE them. Read people before calling the KKK a right wing group.

Really huh well perhaps the FBI needs to learn their history. The KKK was NOT started by Republicans, it was started bt Dems in the south that wanted to keep their slaves. That is a FACT! The KKK has some how been thrown over to our side as the Dems try to forget that they started the whole damn group. NOT GONNA FLY!!

yeah, those right wing KKK extremists like Robert Byrd
