CONTEMPORARY HATE GROUPS
Name:
Institution:
Date:

The white order of Thule (WOT).
A Brief Introduction.
WOT was formed around 1994. Its main goal was to work towards revival of the European’s culture and soul. However, the southern Poverty Law centre described this group as racist. The group appeared to have collapsed in 2000 following the group’s announcement that it had disbanded. However, an internet blog was formed in 2005 which reposted the original materials of the group and continues to post new materials to date.
Justification.
The group justifies itself that it adheres to European paganism. It also claims that its activities are spiritual.
Recruitment strategies.
The group teaches its members through educational programmes. The programmes include; occultism, Jungal and Hermetic psychology, Achetype pathworking and folkish hygiene. It also has books that it uses to train its followers. The books include Might is Right, Revolt against the modern world and the decline of the western people.
Membership.
The activities of the group do not discriminate against women and children. However, the members are limited people of the European origin. Each member has to be 18 years and above. The group is so engrossed in its obligations that it becomes difficult to describe the place of women and children in the group. This is because, no materials printed by the group addresses the issue of women and children, unlike the National alliance.

The National Alliance.
A Brief History.
The leader of National Alliance is Erich Gliebe although the group was founded by William Pierce in 1974. Pierce died in 2002. The headquarters of the Group is in West Virginia.
The contemporary Target for the group.
The group positively targets and supports the Aryan race viewing it as a superior race. It negatively targets both blacks and Jews whom it depicts as a…...

Hate Crimes

...Abstract Prejudice can lead to many things. Hate crimes are something every individual has to be concerned with. Targets are not always based on race, but based on social class. Hate crimes are not always an uncontrollable or random act. Race motivated crimes occur when an ethnically or racially person starts to see a migration of people with different ethnic or racial backgrounds. Social class hate crimes occur when individuals feel they are trying to better their communities by ridding them of the undesirables. Prejudice will continue to exist because of human nature. Hate Crimes Hate crime can be defined as any crime that would violate a person’s civil right and is fueled by hostility towards a person’s race, sexual orientation gender, origin, creed, or religion. Typically when hearing of hate crimes, one thinks of crimes towards those of other races. Many places experience hate crimes against the homeless, mentally disabled or physically disabled people, (Hate Crimes, 2013). A common trait of a person who commits hate crimes is they are usually a member of a hate organization. Most people limit the groups to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) or the Neo-Nazi. However, that may not always be the case. There are many hate crimes that are committed by a number of different groups, In some cases the person(s) feels they are doing a good thing for society and their community by making it a better, safer place. Other times they may be reacting on impulse since they believe......

Hate Groups in America

...Hate Groups in America Abstract This essay will be exploring hate groups that exist in America, and some of the victims that have been a target from these groups. Hate groups commit violent crimes against people because of their demographics or the organizations that they represent. A hate crime is a violent criminal act that is not justified; it is committed to inflict pain and suffering. While hate groups exist in America, the crimes that are committed are not acceptable, and could be solved with communication. “We hate some persons because we do not know them, and we will not know them because we hate them”-Charles Caleb Colston Hate Groups in America Hate Groups have been increasing in America, and they are surged by a feeling of hate toward another group because of their race, national religion, sexual orientation, status and anything that one will find to hate another. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances” http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/first_amendment. Americans have freedoms to form groups that they want to and if it violates the law it will be looked into, and although the crimes that these groups commit against others is wrong, the hate groups that have formed are not illegal, and are growing in......

Hate Crimes

...Hate Crimes Hate crimes have become a major concern among lawmakers in all nations and at all levels of government. The main concern is that hate crimes are nothing new. Some examples from the past are the Roman persecution of Christians and the Nazi solution for the Jews. More recently we have experienced the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and genocide in Rwanda. Racial and religious bias seems to be the inspiration for most hate crimes in the United States. Even as the United States was being settled in the 16th and 17th centuries, the Native Americans were the victims of intimidation and violence. During the last two hundred years, examples in the United States include lynching of African Americans, cross burnings to dive black families out of white neighborhoods, assaults on gay and lesbian people, and painting swastikas on Jewish synagogues. In the United States, over 8, 000 hate crimes were reported in 1995. Over one third were against African Americans, while the others were motivated by biases anti white, anti Jewish, anti gay, and anti Hispanic. Nearly 7 years ago a former Ku Klux Klansman, Thomas E. Blanton Jr. was convicted for blowing up a church in Birmingham and killing four young black girls in 1963. Also in 1963, Alabama Governor George C. Wallace ordered National Guard Troops to block black students from entering public schools. Birmingham safety commissioner Eugene “Bull” Conner turned German shepards and fire hoses on peaceful......

Hate Crimes

... Hate Crimes Kelly Brynn American Intercontinental University Abstract There are several things in this world that prejudice can lead to. One of these things and something that every person should concern themselves with, are hate crimes. Though one would think that race would be the biggest if not only target, social classes are a target as well. Hate crimes are not always necessarily random or even uncontrollable acts. Crimes that are motivated by race typically happen when a racially or ethnically person begins to notice a migration of individuals without the same racial or ethnic roots. Hate crimes with social classes happen when people feel as if they are need to improve their communities by ways of getting rid of what they would call the “trash”. Prejudice continues to exist and will always exist simply because of our own human nature. Hate Crimes Hate crimes can be described as crimes that violate the civil rights of an individual or group and feed off of aggression towards the individual’s religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, creed, origin, and/or religion. Usually when one thinks about a hate crime it is assumed that it involves only......

Hate Crime

...Hate Crime: A Rising Problem Hate Crime can be defined as a perpetrator deliberately targeting a victim because of his or her believed membership in a certain social group, usually defined by race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, class, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, gender identity, or political affiliation. In the US the Hate Crimes Statistics Act (1990) requires for the recording of an event as a ‘hate crime’ that there is ‘manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity and requires recording officers to complete a 14-point checklist involving a great deal of subjectivity and requiring tacit knowledge of the offences by the recording officer’ (Jacobs, 2003). Some groups such as blacks, Jews, and homosexuals are the most targeted for biased based violent crime but are protected by certain state and federal laws while other groups such as transgendered people are not protected by any law. In the film Soldier’s Girl we meet a young man plagued by the ignorance of a society unwilling to accept a person with non-traditional sexual orientation into the bravado of the Army Infantry. This is an instance far too familiar for many people who make the choice to have a non-traditional way of life. The story of Barry Winchell and Capernia is a direct correlation as to how homosexuals as well as transgendered individuals are treated by society today. The debate on whether being homosexual is a choice or a trait a person is born......

Hate Crimes

...way of thinking on others. When I group of people do not agree with the beliefs and values of others and resort to violence to enforce their way of thinking hate crimes happen. Hate crimes have been around for centuries and come in many different forms such as Racial, Religious, and Sexual orientation. Congress defines hate crimes as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation”(FBI.gov). The Hate Crime Statistics act was passed by congress in 1990 and required the Attorney General to collect data “about crimes that manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.” In 2012 the Federal Bureau of Investigations reported 5,796 hate crime incidents in the United States involving 6,718 offenses. Throughout time the punishments for hate crimes have varied and have become harsher. The punishment for hate crimes is harsher then for crimes that are not motivated by any type of bias. Most crimes are directed at an individual for no other reason then personal gain, hate crimes are directed at an entire population segment. When a crime is proven to be motivated by hate, the punishment automatically increases in severity. In order for a hate crime to receive additional punishment, the state in which the crime was committed must have rules against that specific crime. 18 U.S. Code § 249 – Hate Crime Acts, which sets forth the......

Hate

...to English means “Work will set you free”. This mendacious phrase was hung upon the atrocity-ridden concentration camp of Auschwitz. The Jewish people already being literally ripped from their homes were forced into labor camps not knowing that their fate had been unjustly sealed, even before the war began. From 1933 to 1945, six million Jewish people were erased from the face of this earth for the sake of being scapegoats. Somebody to blame, somebody to be the burden bearers of an entire nation, to give one man and his idea the power that he needed to commit such horrific acts of violence and crimes against humanity. Whole generations were lost, not because of disease or famine, but because of a sick and twisted ideology that a specific group of humans were less than the ground they walk on. Those six million people are now no more than a photo, a memory, a dream, maybe even a name on a memorial wall. The name of this event is as well-known as the people who began and participated in this systematic annihilation of a race, it is called The Holocaust. The name in itself has a deeper meaning beyond the nine letters given to the event. The name represents how much this has truly affected the world over the past sixty years. Some would say that The Holocaust was just genocide, which has happened many times through the course of written and televised history. The name shows how significant it was after World War II and how significant it still is today by simply......

Hate Group Paper

...Hate Group Paper By: Lynda Haynes CJHS/430 Instructor: Justina Smith The history of hate crimes shows us that we as Individuals have always had differences, and with the differences came crimes against others, murders, rapes and even loitering against those we did not feel were equal to us. In Virginia, The Ku Klux Klan has just started to reemerge itself into areas where they feel their work will most likely be appreciated, with of hopes of recruiting new members who like themselves are tired of the government and their changes. Since the reelection of President Obama, Three chapters have surfaced by way of rallies, and burning crosses, these events are held randomly to show there is zero tolerance for rights given to those who the Klan members feel are less than deserving. People are angry today about gay rights, extreme racial changes within the population and of course the fact that we have elected a black president not only one term, but bought him back for a second term. The KKK (Ku Klux Klan) are a radically driven group of individuals who channel their hatred for others that are not white in heritage. The group prides itself on its heritage within the confederacy and believes those who are not born of white decent are not entitled to the privileges of those who are. This mindset has been in existence since the early 1800”s and its meaning comes from the Scottish and Greek meaning “The Family” (Timeline of the Ku Klux Klan, 1997)where a confederate......

...familiar with. This person is a first at what he has done and has probably affected more Americans in ways we have not begun to appreciate. I believe this man has done great things despite the odds. Yet, he is still criticized, yelled at, called names and mistrusted. You have a right to hate the President, but make sure you have the facts straight first. With all of this, he still wakes up each day and goes to battle for the ones who support him and more importantly for those who do not. How difficult it must be to know that just to be accepted by your fellow citizens, you must prove every detail of your existence. No other person has been put through so much scrutiny and so much debate yet he still pushes forward. Knowing his purpose is much larger than himself. To hate someone for being a different color, race or gender is pretty much normal for this society. To deny someone the right to live, work or even worship in America is common, though some try to cover that fact up. Too many have been killed, hung, tortured and burned just because of being different or misunderstood. For this individual to have knowledge of history in America and to have felt the hate, he still wants to push on to complete the race to make a difference. Well, that is the kind of person he is. I am sure he knew the tremendous challenge set before him and the lack of support. Still each day, little by little, he kept attacking the problem and finding solutions to......

Hate Groups in Civil Rights Movements

...Hate Groups and the Civil Rights Movement Hate groups have existed for centuries and transformed radically over the years. Hate groups have appeared in America at times of social liberation time and time again. After the emancipation of the slaves in America, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was formed. This hate group committed heinous murders and other acts of defiance against the equality with African Americans that threatened their social and economic standings. KKK membership has fluctuated since they were formed, but; they reached two main membership peaks: in the 1920s with the red scare after World War I and in the 1960s during the civil rights movement. Both of these were times when minority groups fought for recognition. The civil rights movement also brought hate groups of African Americans. Groups like the Black Panther Party and Black Nationalists opposed the oppression they faced and fought it violently. Today, there is a modern civil rights movement happening and there has been a recent rise in hate group activity. Movements such as anti-racism and gay-rights have raised attention and faced opposition. In modern times, hate groups are less tangible. While there may not be groups with national committees holding meetings to oppose these civil rights, there are groups that have these common hatreds: religious groups, political parties, and certain demographic areas are just a few. Hate groups have left huge impacts on society during periods of social liberation, whether......

Hate Group

...Every day we hear people commenting that they hate someone or something. In school we are taught to except everyone for who they are, regardless of what they look like or how they talk. However, today in the state of Kentucky, there are sixteen hate groups. Groups in which they single out specific people and bring hatred against them. Hate groups from Neo-Nazi’s, Skinheads, Neo-Confederates, White Nationalists and one that is most common, the Ku Klux Klan. One group that I want to speak about is the Ku Klux Klan. In the past couple months, I have personally seen member of the Klan stand outside of busy intersections with signs displaying their beliefs and protesting what they believe. All the while, passerby’s are honking their horns and screaming profanities at them. From this, you can clearly see that this hate group is one not well liked and one most wish not to see. The Ku Klux Klan was founded between December 1865 and the summer of 1866 in Tennessee. The second largest groups in Kentucky is the Imperial Klans of America. They are located in Dawson Springs, Kentucky under the leadership of Ron Edwards. The Imperial Klans of America was started by Edwards in 1996 when his previous organization fell apart in 1995. The history of hate crimes shows us that we as Individuals have always had differences, and with the differences came crimes against others, murders, rapes and even loitering against those we did not feel were equal to us.

...Hate Group Paper Nykia Banks Prof. R. Greenwood CJHS 430 March 23, 2015 1 Intro Six college students founded the Ku Klux Klan between December 1865 and the summer of 1866 in the town of Pulaski, Tennessee. Former Confederate officers, the six young men organized as a social club or fraternity and spent their time in horseplay of various types, including wearing disguises and galloping about town after dark. They were surprised to learn that their nightly appearances were causing fear, particularly among former slaves in the area. They quickly took advantage of this effect and the group began a rapid expansion. Various factions formed in different towns, which led to a meeting in April 1867 to codify rules and organizational structure. (http://archive.adl.org/learn/ext_us/kkk/history.html?LEARN_Cat=ExtremismLEARN_SubCat=Extremism_in_Americaxpicked=4item=kkk) At this meeting, former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest was elected Grand Wizard, or supreme leader, of all the Klan. The organization was divided into a number of realms, dominions, provinces and dens, which were in turn led by Grand Dragons, Titans, Giants and Cyclopes. The policies of Reconstruction -- aiming to extend the rights of Southern blacks -- had the unintended effect of pushing hundreds of resentful and anxious veterans into the Klan, which soon began instituting a systematic policy of violence in opposition to the new......

Hate Crimes

...Unit VIII Research Paper Cherie Quiles Waldorf College Introduction My topic is hate crime, more specifically, hate crimes within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community. It relates to social change because even though it is no longer considered taboo in our country, it is not widely accepted within certain groups or communities. Many people struggle to coexist within members of this community. A hate crime is a crime in which a crime is committed against another person due to the offender being biased against someone else. This is usually due to the person’s race, religion, creed or sexual preference. Although hate crimes in a new category of punishable crime, it has been around for a while in the United States. Many members of the LGBT community make up the majority of the crimes that are the most underreported. Laws against Hate Crimes Laws against hate crimes and discrimination were created because members within this community are being discriminated against daily and at alarming rates. Transgender people are fighting against discrimination at work, schools, housing and public places, to include the ability to use the appropriate restrooms. Contrary to what is seen on television, such as Orange is the New Black, within prison/jails populations, most transgendered people are not housed with the sex they identify with. In recent news, a transgendered woman, Vicky Thomas, was found hanging in her cell. Vicky had reported being harassed...

Hate Crimes

...Hate Crimes – Cause and Effects AIU Online Abstract This essay will look at motives of an individual and the people that may be targeted by their deviance. What causes an individual to deviate from the norms of society will be discussed along with the effects it has on an individual and members of the community. At last we will look at laws and education that may be useful in minimizing the occurrence of these deviances. Hate Crimes – Cause and Effects Hate crimes it seems are the newest deviances in our social justice vocabulary. Specific hate crime statutes started being passed by state legislatures in the late 80’s following research that showed an escalation of crime that was triggered by prejudice (Hate Crime). Emile Durkheim proposed the structural-functional approach to deviance saying that it is a necessary function to set and affirm our moral boundaries (Macionis, ch. 9, pp 197). But what is a hate crime; do we need a special classification for them and what type of individual would commit these acts? Crimes that are committed due to prejudices of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and other reasons are said to be hate motivated. Unfortunately, the federal government and the thirty plus states that have hate crime statutes cannot come together to agree or precisely define its meaning (Hate Crime). This confusion exists because of the first amendment rights to free speech and the difficulty in regulating individual’s beliefs. To find out who the...
