    ...to loathe? Racial, religious, political hate groups, though they've existed over time, seem to be in a thriving frenzy within the U.S. and in other locations as well.

    I've spent a few weeks randomly surfing and visiting sites where supporting/contributing posters have the freedom to spew out highly offensive, hateful and racist remarks: "An ounce of mud in the blood makes a dud."

    The purpose of this thread is, I suppose, to ask the question: What are you actively doing to combat hatred and hate groups? This site has some 10 suggested actions against hatred which can be employed beginning with calling out hateful comments posted on internet forums. Is there anything one can do about it? I thought maybe some collective input might be worth a post or two. Any thoughts?

    The GOP. Has anyone said that one yet?

    Being from whitebread US (northeast), I wasn't really exposed to 'racism' (other than irish hating italians and vice-versa :rolleyes: ), and I moved to NC (the south) 16 years ago. I hate racism. I hate how it creeps into everything here. I think because I wasn't exposed to it by my parents/family/friends, it never became a learned behavior. I hate it.

    If it makes you feel any better, I've beated down some of his supporters before.

    Did I mention that I hate White Supremists?

    I don't know why I was so shocked, when recently checking it out, to find the growing number of white supremacist groups and their sites. Even and including the names of high ranking U.S. politicians who are elected and empowered by those ideas at the grass roots level.

    For space and for the time being, I'll forgo the anecdotes. But it is an alarming trend which seems to be thriving at an alarming rate.

    I suspect it's linked to the growing illegal population in the US.

    Does the Catholic Church count?

    Anyone who tells people in an AID's stricken continent that condoms are bad must be filled with some sort of hate, surely?

    So you're suggesting indifference to such white supremacist groups as are in your own back yard? Wow. That is ironic. :rolleyes:

    Yes I hate hate groups. If I don't counter their evil, who will?

    Now loving hate groups... that would be ironic.

    Counter their evil, certainly. "All that is required for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing", someone smarter than me said.

    But hating people because they hate is not only ironic, it is self destructive. Hate is a thorn in the soul, if not removed it will fester and rot everything around it.

    For clarification, so as to avoid a semantical sidetracking. There is no inference in the opening thread that any hatred of the individual is to be considered as a viable option. "Hatred" in the sense of a strong dislike, anger, hostility, or animosity toward an ideology and what that ideology stands for is what this is after. I think most posters are able enough to make the distinction.

    Oooo, somebody owns a thesaurus! :D


    My apologies. I wasn't aware that "hatred" meant one thing when referring to groups whose ideology you strongly disagree with, and something completely different when referring to your own ideaologies. How could i have been so stupid? ( Now wheres that sarcastic smilie? ) :p

    You'll have to answer that for yourself. Here's that sarcastic smilie for ya. :rolleyes:

    If you have difficulty distinguishing between position and person, you'd be hell to deal with on any committee. ;)

    I don't really know how we got from my assertion that hatred is self destructive to a discussion of seperating person from position,( though the words non-sequitar, strawman, and adverse tangent come to mind ), but i will admit you have brought me to your level beaten me with your experience. I abandon the field to you, with one last thought:

    "There is no man so blind as he who refuses to see."
