Southern Poverty Law Center president Richard Cohen and Mark Potok, editor of this blog and the Intelligence Report magazine, will host a live webcast at 2 p.m. (EDT) on March 18 to discuss the SPLC’s recently released annual count of hate groups.

This year’s report documented 926 hate groups operating in the United States, representing a 54 percent increase since 2000. Potok and Cohen will discuss the factors fueling the growth of hate groups in the United States.

They will accept questions before and during the 30-minute audio webcast.

    “Concerning the prejudice of race; it is an illusion, a superstition pure and simple, … In the sight of God there is no difference between the various races. Why should man invent such a prejudice? How can we uphold war caused by such an illusion? … All races, tribes, sects and classes share equally in the bounty of their Heavenly Father.”

    You’re a particularly vile lab specimen. Wait, ah, now that we’ve closed your cage we can continue. Yep, Michael, you’re not exactly one who radiates the White Pride Worldwide you espouse. Darn, you’re simply simple.

    Last time I checked, Israel is narrower than the great state of NJ, while the Muslim Arab landmass is infinitely larger. But that doesn’t matter: You have no love for the Palestinians. You take a ride on their cause in order to hurl ho-hum invectives.

    You’re a trashy, lowlife, low IQ, pathetic loser and you vent your rage via the Internet. You’ve got no friends, are awkward in the company of people, even those you know. You have failed in all your significant relationships. In short, you’re a loser, and you want a scapegoat or two so you don’t have to think about your downright disgraceful condition.

    Get your pride the real way: Earn it.

    The SPLC is the biggest hate group in America.Their anti-American organization never mentions the abuses and hatred of the Palestinians at the hands of the Zionist State of Israel.They never call groups such as the NAACP and ADL supremacists and hate groups,obviously there’s a double standard that exists here in Amercia.It’s called Hypocrisy,you see straight white gentiles organizing for their common interests is both Verboten and Taboo,while Jews and non-whites are encouraged and praised for organizing by the media,churches,schools,etc..It’s time for whites to stand their ground and fight back for our heritage and culture,it’s not hate to fight to preserve our rights and our genes.White people unite!

    Thank you. The EDT 423/523 Adolescent Literature and Media class of Miami University found this podcast to be very informative. As future educators we feel that we have a lot of work to do with our students and communities.

    These groups should be subject to scientific study. I think that it will be by and large found that the majority of people in these groups have frontal lobe dysfunction and concomitant low IQ.

    They’d have to start hate campaigns against themselves. :-)
