Dear friend,

SPLC President Richard Cohen and SPLC's Intelligence Project Director Mark Potok invite you to join them for a live webcast — a 30-minute audio chat — to discuss our recently released Year in Hate and Extremism report.

Far-right politicians and media figures continue to pour fuel on the fire with outrageous conspiracy theories and demonizing propaganda about those who disagree with them.

The number of active hate groups in the United States topped 1,000 for the first time and the antigovernment "Patriot" movement expanded dramatically for the second straight year as the radical right showed continued explosive growth in 2010.

Richard and Mark will accept questions before and during the 30-minute audio webcast.

 

Live webcast
Date:
 Wednesday, March 2, 2011
Time: 1 p.m. Eastern
How to participate: Register here and you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a link to sign into the webcast.

 

This year's list also includes 17 anti-gay groups, such as the Family Research Council, which have been listed because of their propagation of known falsehoods—claims about LGBT people that have been thoroughly discredited by scientific authorities—and repeated, groundless name-calling. Viewing homosexuality as unbiblical does not qualify organizations for listing as hate groups.

Anti-Muslim hate groups—a relatively new phenomenon in the United States—are poised for growth as fear mongers continue to claim that Shariah law is surreptitiously replacing the American legal system.

We look forward to your participation in the live chat.

I'm just going to quote this quickly in a non-white-on-white fashion:
