    Would you support the government pursuing hate groups as they do terrorist groups?

    Would you support the government pursuing hate groups as they do terrorist groups? Arresting and detaining leaders of these groups, freezing assets, shutting down websites, and other means of stopping these groups from spreading their hate?

    Define hate.

    I'm afraid that the definition of "hate" would end up being the domain of those running the wealthy & influential "Professionally & Selectively Offended" Industries

    I can almost hear the First Amendment being ground to bits in the shredder if anything like this becomes law.


    Thanks

    Um, if they have committed crimes like these terrorists, actions meant to cause harm and to intimidate a population....well then of course.

    That is a bit of a no-brainer.

    White Nationalist groups, KKK, New Black Panthers, Conservative Citizens, Aryan Nation, or any other groups that promote hate and encourage others to perpetrate hate against others.

    Instead of posting a vague, undefined claim, would you kindly post a clear complete thought so I don't have to get you to clarify?

    If these groups are using violence or threats of violence, then they are terrorists. Unfortunately, some kinds of terrorism are a part of "traditional" values.

    Nope.People have the right to free speech in the US.We are not Canada, or some euro-trash country that sucks the testicles of special interests groups by making it illegal to offend those special interest groups. If want to treat hate groups the same way we do terrorists then how about the occu-tards and other leftists who hate rich people, the agitators in Ferguson and other states encouraging riots?How about the Code Pink moonbats who hate the military?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What about the Black Panthers, La Raza, Nation of Islam, the Obama administration, etc? They promote hate...regularly
