General Hate

These groups peddle a combination of well-known hate and conspiracy theories, in addition to unique bigotries that are not easily categorized. Several of the groups seek to profit off their bigotry by selling a miscellany of hate materials from several different sectors of the white supremacist movement.

Top Takeaways

The active hate groups listed under General Hate for 2020 are a bit different than those listed in 2019. As SPLC seeks to better understand the ideological drivers of hate groups we have developed the antisemitism categorization, which is now listed under “General Hate.” The bulk of the groups listed under this ideology were formerly categorized as Black Separatist and Holocaust Denial. As these groups come under the General Hate categorization, Neo-Volkisch groups – which made up the bulk of this category in 2019 – have been moved to their own standalone category.

Most notably, another group listed in General Hate is the Proud Boys, the “Western chauvinist” men’s club that espouses rabidly anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant beliefs, demonizes trans people, and clings to archaic and misogynistic notions of gender. Established in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, the Proud Boys were staunch supporters of Trump’s throughout his presidency.

Key Moments

After a downturn in activity in 2019, the Proud Boys capitalized on the instability and conflict that the COVID-19 pandemic and divisive Trump administration sowed in 2020. Early on in the pandemic, members of the Proud Boys began attending anti-lockdown protests, claiming these gatherings would be “where the battle for the 2020 election starts.”

Significant clashes between members of the Proud Boys and counterprotesters occurred in Portland, Oregon in August and September. Self-identified Proud Boy Alan Swinney was arrested for shooting paintballs at counterprotesters and pointing a pistol at them with his finger on the trigger.

Similar to Trump’s violence-inciting words on Jan. 6, 2021, prior to the riotous insurrection at Congress, Trump pointedly refused to denounce the actions of white supremacists, specifically the Proud Boys, in a September 2020 presidential debate. When pushed on the matter, he instructed the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.” He then continued, “but I’ll tell you what, I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem.”

In December, amidst Trump’s false accusations of election fraud, Proud Boys gathered in Washington, D.C. to support the president’s unfounded claims. One Proud Boy who attended was photographed wearing a shirt emblazoned with, “6MWE,” an antisemitic slogan that stands for, “six million wasn’t enough.” Enrique Tarrio, the group’s leader, was arrested after his involvement in burning a church's Black Lives Matter sign at this protest.

What’s Ahead

While the number of active hate groups listed under the Antisemitism ideology is not expected to change significantly in 2021, this does not mean these ideological bigotries will stagnate. Claims around the “global special interest” that facilitated Biden’s presidential election “steal” are founded in centuries of antisemitic conspiracy theories, currently being exploited by far-right extremist groups.

Though the Biden-Harris administration and Trump’s impending impeachment trial mean the Proud Boys have lost their ally in the White House, they remain highly organized. Street mobilization will continue to be an important political tool for the group, as will their alliances with more radical segments of the Republican Party. 

Background

These groups espouse a variety of unique hateful doctrines and beliefs that are not easily categorized. This list includes a “Jewish” group that is rabidly anti-Arab, a “Christian” group that is anti-Catholic and a polygamous “Mormon” breakaway sect that is racist. Many of the groups are vendors that sell a miscellany of hate materials from several different sectors of the white supremacist movement.
