ATLANTA Fed by antagonism toward President Obama, resentment toward changing racial demographics and the economic rift between rich and poor, the number of so-called hate groups and antigovernment organizations in the nation has continued to grow, according to a report released Wednesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Why is “hate” the preferred umbrella epithet for characterizing citizen groups, regardless of their stated or unstated purposes, the rhetoric they employ, or their actions?

The fact that SPLC/Morris Dees doesn't classify itself as a hate group pretty much disqualifies anything it has to say on the subject.

Is FR on the list?

If not, then we need to step it up around here.

"The Occupy movement is not on the list because its participants as a collective do not meet the center’s criteria for an extremist group, he said."

This pretty much proves that what is going on here is that the office of The President of the U.S. is officially defining its political opponents as enemies of the state. Pretty scary stuff. There's a hard rain gonna fall.

i’m starting to think that they are coming at this from a viewpoint of hating these groups. Thus, they call the groups “haters,” when really _they’re_ the ones who hate. E.g. they hate anti-abortion groups because the groups are telling them something they don’t want to hear and it makes them feel guilty or something. (?)

Right! This is why they had to come up with ‘hate crimes’ law.

Invent something called ‘hate crime’ so they can use it against anyone
that don’t go along with their views.

All other groups pale in comparison to the largest hate-group on record—Bo and Moochelle’s WH gang. Hope and Change from hell.

Mark Potok, the author of this tripe, has an agenda.

OWS isn't a "hate group" to this socialist shill, but surely the tea party is.

And here's an article that shows this scumbag trying to link Jared Loughner to the right.

One of the criteria for hate groups should be the act of engaging in "lawfare".

Lawfare is the illegitimate use of domestic or international law with the intention of damaging an opponent, winning a public relations victory, financially crippling an opponent, or tying up the opponent's time so that they cannot pursue other ventures such as running for public office.

The verdict on the SPLC?   Guilty!

Number of U.S. Hate Groups Is Rising

In the words of Mr Briebart.....SO?

Apparently being anti-white and anti-Western is not 'hate'?

Has anyone found a list of the 1018 hate groups from last year?

I think we should inundate the Southern Pimp Law Center with demands to be included in the list, even if it's only a "hate Group" of one.
I qualify. I despise my current Federal Government, and I oppose any group with the word "Black" in it; and I resist any demand to fund recreational sex.

Maybe I should start wearing a large yellow (or red?) "H" ?

Gee, who-da-thunk that if you change the definition of "hate" to include disagreeing with Obama's policies, and the fact that he, his regime, his supporters, and his puppet masters have fostered class and racial hatred, it's surprising that the number of "hate groups" has increased...
