Never say ‘hate’

Sez John Derbyshire:

In observing American racial attitudes and politics, the interest is in the variety of ways white Americans smother their despair. Some, of course, don’t. They are the kind of people whose groups you find on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate” list, though many of them are not noticably hateful, only, as they would put it, “realistic.” Hate is not a synonym for despair.

The SPLC’s “hate” list can be found here. If anyone wants to offer up some suggestions about which ones of those organizations qualify as “not noticeably hateful,” I’m waiting for suggestions.

Here are the groups on SPLC’s “hate” list for Massachusetts:
Council of Conservative Citizens
Nation of Islam
National Socialist Movement – NSM
North East White Pride
Jewish Defense League
American National Socialist Workers’ Party
Mass Resistance

Anyone? Anyone?

But perhaps you disagree

No responses so far

The room is, as yet, filled with smoke and apprehension.
