Hate Groups

Hate Group is an organization that is seen as being dangerous or immoral due to supporting discriminatory or violent ideals, the use of the term is controversial 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. Hate groups often commit aptly named hate crimes.

The most extreme examples of hate groups would be those we have come to know as terrorists, such as Al-Qaeda - as well as outlawed groups such as the Ku Klux Klan: these groups engage in exceptionally violent acts and as such are 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 not outlawed, this makes it extremely difficult to deal with them and the topic is controversial 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.

Outlawed Hate Groups

IMPORTANT NOTE: Outlawed groups may not be illegal in every country, they may only be outlawed in certain states or areas - thus a group that is outlawed in one country/state may be legal in another.
