Hate Groups

Hate Groups

Hate Groups are organizations that are seen as being prejudicial, dangerous, and immoral due to supporting discriminatory and violent ideals, the use of the term is not without controversy, however, as many in the far-right or far-left see it as a term used to demonize their cause and many who join these groups genuinely believe them to be beneficial.

The most extreme examples of Hate Groups would be those we have come to know as terrorists, such as Al Qaeda and the Islamic State - as well as outlawed groups such as the Ku Klux Klan: these groups engage in exceptionally destructive and violent acts and are virtually under constant monitoring by authorities as high up as the military (in the case of terrorist groups) and organizations such as the FBI or CIA (for outlawed groups).

However, a great many groups classed as Hate Groups are permitted, this makes it extremely impossible and difficult to deal with them and the topic is controversial and tendentious as such groups have a right to exist under freedom of speech: yet many of these groups have been involved in violence or at the least have supported the use of such and for this reason they are often targeted by authorities and public alike, who push for them to be outlawed.
