    The SPLC is a group with a considerably less than sterling reputation within the "hate" awareness a/k/a white genocide industry.

    Really, a "hate" group is only someone that the SPLC hates.

    I'm wondering, what exactly is the SPLC's definition of a "hate group"?

    The election of of president Obama has stirred racists and racism to manifest in people, who have been very subtle, in their racist sentiments, for a long time. Its spurred on by fear and ignorance, which primarily is the driving force behind their racism. A confident, progressive, enlightened, man and woman, has no time nor room for the kinds of hate that these folks display. To make it worse, the Republican party members, since loosing the two houses have been instinctively promoting these hate groups, by their utterances. Sometimes, its hard to tell a republican from a racist or an extremist.
