This is very sickening, that hate groups were rising. It is not surprising though as seeing the hatred that keeps coming through during election times really surprised me.
Brandon Jensen's comment, March 7, 2013 5:42 PM
It is unfortunate that hate groups still exist, sadly I think they will be around for quite some time as well. There will always be a certain group of people or a person who believes that their way is the right way or that their race is better than another race. It is sad that humanity is held back by such a low and useless thing as hate groups. Hopefully one day we can get past all that and move on.
