Stay away from Spokane, it’s a horrible place to live.Wink,
winkActually the biggest threat to this awesome city is the lefties
moving here from California, Seattle and Portland. Funny thing is they still
support the exact same thing they left. I don’t get it? Stay in Cali
Sounds a lot like what was going on with a FEW former FBI/Justice Department
Was Maxine Waters reprimanded for her hate speech towards republicans?
" internet chats from 2017 show Shea and three other men discussing
confronting "leftists" with a variety of tactics, including violence,
surveillance and intimidation. The messages prompted Washington House Democrats
to demand that Shea be reprimanded for a history of far-right speech and
activities." This statement says it all. Democrats want
to tell the rest of us how to live, but want anyone with far-right
JaneB - Wilsonville, OR---Not sure we should worry more about the
Pacific Northwest than any other area. The Southern Poverty Law Center has a
2018 hate map you can look up. The Pacific Northwest is not a hotbed. They seem
to be more prevalent in the south. The only state without a hate group is NM.
Some numbers: CA 83, WA 28, OR 15, ID 10 TX 73, NY 47 FL 75, UT 9, NC 40, VA 39.
Far less in the west than anywhere else.---In terms of numbers
of population, Utah with a population of approx. 3M, has 9 listed hate groups,
that's about 1 group per 333K residents of the state. Washington with 7.5M
and 28 groups, gives 1 group per 260K residents, and California with 40M has 83
groups yielding about 1 group per 500K residents.And Idaho, with a
population of 1.7M yields 1 group per 170K residents.Compare those
two Northwest stats with, Alabama, recently in the news about their stringent
protection of the fetus, where there are 23 listed hate groups with a population
of 4.8M yielding 1 group per 208K residents. Suggesting that Idaho, Washington,
and Alabama are more similar than different, at least in distribution of such

The southern poverty law center is itself a hate organization and should not be
given any public forum for its twisted propaganda.

David - I appreciate your prospective that aligns with "Not in my
Town!" but to say that the problems of hate exist on both sides of the
political spectrum is disingenuous, ignoring the real problem. And to suggest
that the "left" supports Hammas and the destruction of Israel and
anything Christian is just wrong. The problem isn't with the
"Right" it is with a small group of racists within the Republican party
that for some reason haven't been completely denounced and kicked out.Also, remember this group doesn't just target skin color, but if
you have the wrong license plate in the wrong rural area you can find trouble.
It isn't that much different than the gang issue in urban areas, but I
don't know of any viable political party in the US that won't
sanction (or kick out) a gang in their ranks.
Well when the White House supports them, why not?
I have no sympathy or feel any amount of support for racism, violence, hatred or
hate speech. However, I do not assign one political side or the other as the
source of these things. Right leaning groups do not dominate hate. It comes
from both extreme sides of the political spectrum. Otherwise, the Left would
reject Hamas and the Palestianian Authority in their efforts to destroy Israel
and Jews. The Left would speak out against persecution, violence, hate speech
and vandalism towards Christians and other faith groups. Hate is
too prevalent across the political spectrum.
"He has served in the state House since 2008, introducing bills to
criminalize abortion and roll back gun laws and pushing for eastern Washington
to secede from the rest of the state. The military veteran attracted
international attention in 2018 after a document he wrote laid out a
"biblical basis for war" against people who practiced same-sex marriage
and abortion, and instructed: 'If they do not yield, kill all
males.'"To paraphrase Capt. Caul (Lonesome Dove): Heckuva
These incidences of hate and prejudice are appalling. And yes, there is a
convincing evidence to show it is especially severe with politically right
leaning groups. Instead of making excuses for hatred, bigotry, and
discrimination, I hope courageous Republicans will continue to step forward and
