2017 Hate Map shows 917(Image Source: [email protected])

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released an interactive hate map, which shows there are 917 active hate groups in the United States. These groups were well represented in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend during the Alt-Right rally-turned-riot.

According to the SPLC, among these groups are: (K) “Kekistani,” (AC) “Anti-Communist,” (L) “Libertarian,” (N) “Nationalist,” (I) “Identitarian/Identity Evropa,” (SN) “Southern Nationalist,” (NS) “National Socialist,” (AR) “Alt Right,” Traditionalist Worker Party and Vanguard America.

Many believe the rally and growing list of unifying White supremacist hate groups are due to xenophobic and racist remarks made by President Donald Trump.

According to the SPLC:

-There has been a 197% Increase in the total number of anti-Muslim hate groups up from 2015.

-In 2016, the total number of anti-government “patriot groups” was growing at 663.

-The total number of Ku Klux Klan groups in 2016 was steadily growing at 130 known organizations.

-In 2017, there are an estimated 917 active hate groups in the United States.

These numbers are frightening. President Trump has created a climate of intolerance in America that is quickly slipping into the dark territory of fascism.

    “Under Trump” clearly means Trump supports all these groups. I’m offended though that this list also includes Black separatist group Nation of Islam. Fortunately it doesn’t include the two noble groups involved, ANTIFA and World Workers Party, because they do great work on our behalf meeting hate with proper use of force. At the next neo-Nazo rally hopefully police will back off completely and allow ANTIFA to take care of these Trump hate groups.

      “I’m offended though that this list also includes Black separatist group Nation of Islam.”
      The SPLC allegedly tracks hate groups, and Nation of Islam is a hate group, so they should track it.

      “Fortunately it doesn’t include the two noble groups involved, ANTIFA and World Workers Party, because they do great work on our behalf meeting hate with proper use of force.”
      These two groups should both be included in the the SPLC’s hate map. They are hate groups based on identity politics.

      Some chapters of Black Lives Matter should also be included, since some actively promote racial hatred. Granted, not all chapters do, so the distinction would have to be made on a case-by-case basis.

    You call them “Hate Groups” which I believe is a mislabeled error with negative consequences.. which gives these groups an undeserved defense. I don’t think you realize this. What if I form a “hate group” that hates cancer and wants to wipe it out, or a hate group, that wants to wipe out racism…

    Call me guilty, for wanting to form a nation wide “hate Group” to identify, shame, and disempower all cultural sociopathy….. of which the alt right, KKK, anti semites, anti blacks, anti Islam, anti-gays, anti-poor, anti socials -GOP- act against.

    Hating evil is no vice,,, it is a virtue,,,

    sociopathy is a psycho/social sickness that is in many ways like a virus it causes great harm and it spreads.. I hate it……. like I hate Cancer.

    The best name to uses against this social disease is to call anyone and everyone who has it in any degree at all, an anti-social, and those who have a fully functioning social conscience a social

    socials vs antisocial

    it would be nice if you all would adjust your vocabulary…

    Hate is not necessarily pathological….

    antisocial personality disorder is pathological
