Why does hate have to be an issue, when Legal entrance into the Country is the question.

Possible that some of them are----------although, I put little stock in what SPLC says considering their (barely) veiled pro amnesty agenda.

Correction! None of those groups are anti-immigration they are anti-illegal immigration. Know the difference.

In today's PC world, defining "hate" is next to impossible...therefore, the term 'hate group' could mean just about anything someone wanted it to. Are these groups 'hate groups'? Some insist they are.

The article does not make that distinction:
Quote:
These groups generally attack immigrants as individuals, rather than merely disagreeing with immigration policy. Some have close ties to white supremacist ideas, groups and individuals.

I would like to know the same thing. Why so much hate? Why?

Good point. Hate is a hard concept to define. In a way, you could say that members of the Arkansas Razorback Fan Club are "haters" of the other SEC teams.

But that does not make their case. Instead they lie and modify the truth to fit the cause.

Americans are not as ignorant as illegals. We Americans, actually know the difference.


Were we not just warned, not to feed the trolls?
