Obama's alleged ties to radicals and extremists

Updated: October 31, 2008

Barack Obama, the Democratic Party's nominee for President, has become a target for white supremacists and other extremists on various Websites and Internet forums since he began his campaign.  White supremacists, not surprisingly, focus on Obama's African-American background and the threat they feel he poses to America's white population. Some warn people to be ready for an oncoming disaster if Obama is elected. Many suggest that Obama is a good target for an assassination attempt.  Some anti-Semitic posts focus on how Jews control Obama and his candidacy. Still others claim that Obama has ties to radical movements or that his former church has carried out murders.

The comments below are from neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and adherents of Christian Identity, a racist, anti-Semitic religion.  Some are from well-known haters like former Klan leader David Duke and white supremacists Hal Turner and Tom Metzger while others are from unknown individuals posting to extremist forums and Websites and individual blogs. Most of the commentators use blatantly racist, hateful language to express their views.
