Wow LOOK At This!!! Map of U.S. Hate Groups Lists California At #1 Most Active For Racist Organizations

A new map has been released showing where hundreds of hate groups are based in the United States. The map, created by The Southern Poverty Law Center, shows racist groups are still largely in the South but regardless, the number of such groups has increased significantly since President Obama took office. While the number of such hate groups has dropped from 1,007 in 2012 to 939 in 2013, many of their ideas are becoming more mainstream amongst right-wing politicians. “The idea that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security, among others, is being plugged by U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). Last November, U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) suggested the president was using the Affordable Care Act as cover to set up a ‘secret security force,'” the report comments. As well, it seems that during Democrat presidential terms, the hate group activity spikes, with the Obama administration representing a new high. While many states have an array of hate groups, the SPLC classified each of them into eight categories: black separatist, neo-confederate, Christian identity, racist skinhead, white nationalist, neo-Nazi, Ku Klux Klan and “general hate.” Only Hawaii was noted to not have any hate groups whatsoever. Southern states, however – 589 of the 939 active groups that the SPLC identified – account for a huge 63% of all hate groups in the United States. Even while Florida has 58 such groups, and Texas 57, California made the top of the list. Racist skinheads group in Southern California helped the state come in at the #1 spot, even though it has no history of slavery. Such groups “have for years, been running in political elections and haven’t done all that well,” the report’s author Mark Potok said. “They have however, recently gathered the top influential white supremacists to run their board and are becoming more aggressive about winning elections.” (Article by M.B.
