The number of active hate groups in the United States soared to a "record high" of 1,020 in 2018, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center's latest "Year in Hate" report. The report, released Wednesday, found that groups pushing racist, anti-LGBT, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim ideologies proliferated in the second year of Donald Trump's presidency, fueled by the verbal validation and concrete policies of the administration and its allies.

I'm a little disappointed this thread got zero traction. I think this is an extremely important discussion to have.

When they grew because the white supremacists were triggered by a black man living in the White house.

Now they are growing because they have a kindred spirit in the White House

"Hate Groups Reach Record High in 2018"

But hoax hate attacks are on the rise too, or so I've heard.

So it all balances out, provided you just think about it like a Trumper or Never Trumper.

Only because we have a weak justice dept who would rather focus on African-Americans who have an education than

whites who are killing people. It's always been the murican way.

the greatest spike in hate group chapters came from "white supremacist groups birthed in the age of Trump," like Identity Europa and Atomwaffen Division.

Did BLOTUS wear his dad's klan robes while welcoming Atomwaffen into the fold?

SPLC - Still begging to become relevant again.

SPLC designates political foes as "hate-groups". They've recently been successfully sued for libel for doing this.

I don't place a lot of weight in their designations.

The Dems will lose again due to lack of substance and by not addressing the concerns of the masses. Name calling doesn't win the oval.

Trump 2020.

interesting factoid from the link in #15

"While many groups are adding members, the SPLC found one of the best known hate groups, the Ku Klux Klan, appears to be in decline. The group, despite a history that stretches back more than a century, has been marked by infighting and difficulty connecting to a younger generation.

"The KKK has not been able to appeal to younger racists, with its antiquated traditions, odd dress and lack of digital savvy. Younger extremists prefer ... polo shirts and khakis to Klan robes," the report says."

not less hate..just more stylish groups....LOL

If you see someone in a polo shirt and khakis, punch them in the face!

The SPLC itself is a domestic terror group. It lost it's credibility years ago.

After years of smearing good people with false charges of bigotry, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has finally been held to account. A former Islamic radical named Maajid Nawaz sued the center for including him in its bogus "Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists," and this week the SPLC agreed to pay him a $3.375 million settlement and issued a public apology.

So you've heard? You mean it rose from 0 to 1 with Jussie Smolletts case?
