The United States experienced a 222 percent increase in active hate groups between 1999-2011. The percentage gets worse as by 2040, Caucasians will no longer be the predominant race.
Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) graph of hate group active inside the United States. It presents fluctuations of activity starting in 1999 ending with 2016.
Since 1999, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of active hate groups. SPLC mapped this raise in destructive disposition on immigration and racial mixing, which lead individuals and communities, predominantly Caucasian, to experience resentment in losing the majority by 2040.
The resentment brought anger and hate, so much so the U.S. experienced a 222 percent increase of active hate groups between the years of 1999 and 2011.
Despite the radical increase of hate groups in those 12 years, there was the beginning of what would have been hopefully a dramatic regress with the active hate groups dropping from 1,018 to 784 active in 2011until 2014. Unfortunately, after 2014, the rate of groups started to pop up again, but not only positive it was exponential. What could cause such an increase of 169 percent from the end 2014 to before the start of 2016?
On June 16, 2015, Donald Trump declared his intent to become the 45th president in this speech”, When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
Given the vulgarity and the location to which he connects to moral injustice, to people of color coming from Mexico, Trump gives reinforcement to hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan.
As the speech Trump adds deeper and thinker beams to the pre-existing racist stereotypes. Creating a social-political cage around people, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers south of the border wasn’t enough for the president shown with the next partition of his announcement speech in 2015, “It’s coming from more than Mexico. … it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East.
But we don’t know.
Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. It’s got to stop, and it’s got to stop fast.
Such totality with hate speech, as shown above, by a man in power, gives permission to hate by laying down a layer of “warranted” concrete, actions and have been unfolded because of the inspiration and reliability to an individual with the social-economic power such as Trump. He takes the tyranny of the majority and waves a battle-axe by telling the American people they are in danger with nothing to stop the opposing force and extending the fear by enticing quick action with no plan in which he can solve for the terror he has exploded.
The rate that active hate groups will become more exponential as long as Trump is in office giving out his hate speeches, he needs to be voted out.
