"The group's Web site, www.oathkeepers.org, features videos and testimonials in which supporters compare President Barack Obama's America to Adolf Hitler's Germany. They also liken Obama to England's King George III during the American Revolution. One member, in a videotaped speech at an event in Washington, D.C., calls Obama 'the domestic enemy the Constitution is talking about.' According to the law center, militia groups are re-emerging in this country partly as a result of racial animosity toward Obama. It's the 'cross-pollinating' of extremist groups -- some racist, some not -- that is of concern, Potok said. As evidence that the danger is real, he points to several recent murders committed by men with anti-government or racist views."
