And this is downright fun for hours of viewing pleasure.


Hate on Display™ Hate Symbols Database This database provides an overview of many of the symbols most frequently used by a variety of white supremacist groups and movements, as well as some other types of hate groups
ADL Hate On Display Symbols Database

Better get up to speed on your Hate Symbols - you might be using them everyday with out knowing it.

Examples:
The number 12 is a numeric symbol for Aryan Brotherhood groups (as are the numbers 1 and 2 separately), especially the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. Substituting letters for numbers, 12 equals AB, i.e., Aryan Brotherhood.
The number 13 is a numeric symbol for the Aryan Circle, the large Texas-based racist prison gang. Substituting letters for numbers, 1 and 3 equals A and C, i.e., AC or Aryan Circle.
White supremacists, primarily on the West Coast, may use a two-handed hand sign consisting of one hand showing or flashing two fingers and the other hand showing or flashing three fingers. Together, they signify the number 23, a numeric symbol for W ("White").
The number 33 is used by Ku Klux Klan adherents to signify the Ku Klux Klan: since the 11th letter of the alphabet is K, three Ks signify "KKK" or the Ku Klux Klan. Klan members will frequently follow this with the number 6, to indicate the historical "era" of the Klan they think the Klan currently is in.
The acronym ACAB stands for "All Cops Are Bastards" and is a slogan of long standing in the skinhead subculture. Because non-racist skinheads may use this acronym as well as racist skinheads, it should be carefully judged in the context in which it appears.
AKIA is Ku Klux Klan shorthand for "A Klansman I Am."

I am just on page 1, and not through the "A"s yet. There is plenty of studying up to do for everyone on this site - get to it!

The SPLC is a left wing extremist hate group.

They weren't on the SPLC list.

There's a large thread covering the supposed right wing domestic terrorism issue. And "hate crimes" has already been turned into a political joke.

Ironically, far more people die from the actions of illegal aliens in the USA then "right wing" terrorism.

Yet another example of leftist projecting their behavior on others.

As I said in the past, there are members of ATS that really don't want us discussing Right Wing extremism. You really have to wonder why that's the case.

I would say the exact opposite is true.
Discussing left wing extremist hate groups is a HUGE “no no”.

Make sure you check both ways for a right-winger before leaving your house. They’re crazy and everywhere...scary times!

Really? We have 5 million threads discussing how horrible Antifa and BLM are. Meanwhile any thread discussing Right Wing extremism we get people trying to turn it into a thread discussing how horrible Antifa and BLM are.

The reaction to this thread is the perfect example. I haven't seen anybody actually respond to the OP. Instead it's post after post complaining about the Left.

This just in on the Steve King Has No Friends front:



The Republican's most famous white supremacist, Steve King, was told to find a new line of work by Mitch McConnell, advised to resign by Mitt Romney and stripped of all Committee seats...His major crime was not his abject racism, because that is pretty much part and parcel of the Republican party. His major crime was saying the quiet things out loud.... Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, suggested that King find “another line of work” and Senator Mitt Romney went even farther, saying he should quit. The House chose the most immediate course of action - stripping King of all committee seats, politically neutering him. King had been a member of the House Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business committees and he was was also the top Republican on a Judiciary subcommittee.

On a serious note, do you think right-wing extremism is a danger to national security? If so then why?

You were just having this discussion, I was reading it all


While I like idea, I'm worried its going to be seen as an attack on the other side. Hopefully his homeland security background makes him the right candidate to lead this.

I am quite proud of the GOP reaction to Steve King.

I hope we can focus on all hate groups and minimize their destruction.


The bigger question is:

Is this about eliminating "hate groups" or is this about silencing your political rivals? Given the track record of the Democrats from just this past 2 years alone, I'm gonna go with the latter.


If we’re at a point where you can’t tell the difference between hate groups and the Democrats political rivals, I’d say it’s too late.


Agreed. That being said, hate groups make up a very small percentage of America's right wing. So it'll be interesting to see whom in particular this legislation targets.

If we're going by what the ADL and SPLC label as hate groups, then we're talking about the Democrat's political rivals.

Considering that Atomwaffen had plans to blow up a nuclear power plant and The Base has been discussing coordinated, nationwide, attacks...

I think the answer to that question is pretty obvious.

Maybe because the ‘left’ are hateful fascists who seek to outlaw anyone they see as ‘opposition’ by labelling them as ‘hate groups’ and ‘extremists’ When they’re anything but.

The communist manifesto comes to mind.

Do you see the splc calling the ‘nation of islam’ and extremist hate group???

I think it’s the fact that it’s the fascist left who are labelling these groups (and actually being taken seriously) that the people of the country are worried about.

Mark my words, by their definition I’m sure YOU belong to one of their ‘hate’ sectors of society and when they decide that it’s your turn, it will be your turn.

Communism, socialism and fascism are a very slippery slope. It’s best not to let them even get started.

let’s face it, ZeroHedge is way, way biased...

According to who, CNN?

MSM 'news' only pretends to be “neutral”, NOTHING is ever neutral...

Like the quote below says, being biased doesn't mean you are wrong.

I'll take my chances with 'biased' sources over blatant propaganda any day and every day.

Sadly far too many of us have accepted MSM extremism as normal, and now everything else looks like "fake" news...


1. Everyone is biased

And I mean everyone. Every single person, in every assessment that they make, has all kinds of biases. Sometimes it is as obvious and powerful as confirmation bias - the tendency to interpret matters in a way that confirms one's prior views. At other times it can be as subtle as emotional associations, either positive or negative, with something from one's childhood. No person is a computer.

2. There is nothing wrong with being biased

Being biased is part of the human condition. It hampers one's ability to objectively appraise a topic, but that handicap does not reflect badly one someone any more than a physical handicap. For example, as someone who grew up Jewish and lives in Israel, of course I am biased towards seeing Israel as the good guy in the Israel vs. Palestinian conflict. There's no shame in that bias.

3. Being biased doesn't mean that you are wrong

This is a corollary of the first principle; since everyone is biased, of course being biased cannot mean that one is wrong. And even if, in a dispute, one person is substantially more biased than the other, it still does not mean that he is wrong.

The Seven Principles of Bias
