  1. I think it has to be remembered that the SPLC\’s definition of \”hate group\” is rather, shall we say, expansive. Generally all you need to do to get labeled a hate group by the SPLC is disagree with their politics. Think immigration laws should be enforced? You\’re a hate group. Oppose gun control? Ditto.

    Really, they\’d be a joke, if it weren\’t for the spying on private citizens they do.

    “Hate crime” is a term that has always struck me as extraordinarily repetitive. I would like to meet the person committing a crime because they “love” their victim.

    Gee, Robert, do you either love or hate every person you meet? Most of us have a middle ground, where our actions are motivated by many factors, only one of which is our personal feeling towards another. The point of “hate crime” is to identify that the crime was motivated by hate, rather than, say, greed.

    But you knew that, right?
