As perceptions change and a minority Race is perceived as rising above the power majority — the result is a growth in hate crime rates — and the rising, public, face of hate-seeking organizations like the Aryan Nation pound us asunder.

In Detroit, the neo-Nazi Aryan Nation have taken a child’s indulgence and made it ugly:

Auburn Hills police are seeking information about who is responsible for placing racist and anti-gay fliers inside plastic Easter eggs and tossing them onto residential lawns.

Police responded Sunday to a complaint of fliers containing offensive material in the suburban Detroit community about 20 miles north-northwest of Detroit. About two dozen eggs were found on several yards by officers.

Did you know, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, that Michigan is home to 26 hate groups?

New York provides safe harbor to 31 hate groups:

New Jersey hosts 44 hate mongers:

Should we tolerate these hate groups?

Or is it in our best, shared, interest to find a way to neutralize them before they decide to come for us?


  1. It is unfortunate but necessary to allow hate groups to exist as long as their only actions are in speech and not in violent behavior. Otherwise there will be no end to the people who will say, “If this group can no longer exist, then this group should no longer exist because…”

  2. What if hate speech incites people to violence, Gordon? What then? Do you only punish the actor or must you also punish the instigator as well? Is it possible to be an accessory to murder without killing anyone?

  3. Absolutely. Charles Manson killed nobody but is in prison for his role in the murders that were carried out through his influence.
    When hate speech leads to violence, the instigator must be punished. That means it’s only a time before Glenn Beck and his ilk are punished.

  4. I think that’s right on point, Gordon. You can’t spew the hate and then not deal with any of the consequences other take because of your beckoning.
    I love it that James Cameron is taking on Beck:

    No love lost here: “Glenn Beck is a fucking asshole,” Avatar director James Cameron said at a press conference on Tuesday. “I’ve met him. He called me the anti-Christ and not about Avatar. He hadn’t even seen Avatar yet. I don’t know if he has seen it.” Cameron was apparently referring to Beck’s negative reaction to his 2007 documentary, The Lost Tomb of Jesus. Cameron later said that Beck “may or may not be an asshole” and that the two should have a dialogue. He went on to dismiss right-wing attacks on Avatar—“They’re just people ranting away, lost in their little bubbles of reality, steeped in their own hatred, their own fear and hatred.”—and called climate-change skeptics “boneheads.”
