All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.

This list was compiled using hate group publications and websites, citizen and law enforcement reports, field sources and news reports.

Hate group activities can include criminal acts, marches, rallies, speeches, meetings, leafleting or publishing. Websites appearing to be merely the work of a single individual, rather than the publication of a group, are not included in this list. Listing here does not imply a group advocates or engages in violence or other criminal activity.

Since 2000, the number of hate groups has increased by 54 percent. This surge has been fueled by fears of Latino immigration and, more recently, by the election of the country’s first African-American president and the economic crisis.

These factors also are feeding a growing antigovernment militia movement, which in the 1990s led to a string of domestic terrorist plots, including the Oklahoma City bombing.

This growth in extremism has been aided by mainstream media figures and politicians who have used their platforms to legitimize false propaganda about immigrants and other minorities and spread the kind of paranoid conspiracy theories on which militia groups thrive.

Fighting Hate in Court
In the early 1980s, SPLC co-founder and chief trial counsel Morris Dees pioneered the strategy of using the courts to battle organized, violent hate groups. Since then, we have won numerous large damage awards on behalf of victims of hate group violence. These cases are funded entirely by our supporters; we accept no legal fees from the clients we represent.

Among the groups shut down by crushing jury verdicts in SPLC cases are the White Aryan Resistance, the United Klans of America, the White Patriot Party militia and the Aryan Nations.

These cases have made the SPLC and Dees reviled enemies of the extremist movement. Our headquarters in Montgomery has been the target of numerous plots by extremist groups, including a firebombing that destroyed our offices in 1983. Several dozen people have been sent to prison for plotting against Dees or the SPLC.

Training Law Enforcement
SPLC representatives communicate regularly with law enforcement agencies about extremist activity and conduct in-person training for officers at the local, state and federal level. Thousands of officers have received training that helps them recognize and deal with hate crimes as well as threats posed by extremists. This training is available free to law enforcement agencies.

Good catch.

The states which voted Obama had a total of 515 hate groups, while the rest of the nation had 417.

This proves, as I have claimed, that leftist areas have disproportionate amounts of racism and hatred within their areas.

I wonder what the map looked like during other administrations.

I was surprised to see California running second. Man, those mexicans must hate Pelosi. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

A review of Ohio shows 27 groups

Boy am I relieved that the Tea Party is not on the list.

I see that the (4 items) Nation of Islam is on the list. This is typically not thought of as a Christian group.
What is with ISD Records? I thought only blacks were into rap.
Sorry if I offended any black liking rap. I just decline re rap.

I never heard of half of those on the list.

Some on this list (and an advance apology) could be from the W Virgina area.
