Some bigotry surfaces following presidential election

-A A +A
By The Staff

ALBUQUERQUE – In the aftermath of Barack Obama’s historic victory, white supremacists rushed online to discussion forums to vent anger and disbelief that voters had chosen an African-American candidate as the next president of the United States.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which monitors and exposes extremist activity and rhetoric, states in a Nov. 10 release that anger among hate mongers and right-wing extremists in response to Obama’s victory resulted in an avalanche of caustic postings on racist websites.

At one point, the chatter overloaded the server of the most popular forum, Stormfront, and the site was temporarily shut down.

“We always expect a reaction from the bigots when events occur that they believe are contrary to their interests and worldview,” ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said in the release. “While it’s clear that race didn’t matter to the vast majority of the American people in this election, race matters to racists.”

Foxman added that the amount of invective anger and rage being vented on white supremacist sites in the aftermath of the election is startling.
