    But if it matches the SPLC's definition, then speaking as a leftist, I won't hesitate to denounce it as racism.


    * A lot of these soap-box groups have similar names, and it's tough to keep them straight if you're not paying attention.
    I have not heard of any of those groups in their definition. I'm always suspicious when one organized extremist group tries to define another.

    That is a good way to define it. I agree with you.

    Do me a favor...copy and past what ever racist bullshit they are spewing you want me to read.
    I was trying to show a comparison from a legitimate source. I do not know who you feel there is racist? The SPLC seems to have a good track record of defining different hate groups.

    SPLC DEFINITION FOR SEPARATIST GROUP
    There's ben NO focus recently on separatist groups so
    that makes YOUR agenda very suspicious.
    Shame on you.

    Nationalist and Separatists. Both are polarized factions each based on a group platform driven by racial divides with bad outcomes for either side.

    My agenda is fair and honest discussion. There is no shame in that.

    I think that would not reflect the context of the groups or the discussion. I'm sorry that bothers you.

    This is just me, but, my definition of "Separatist" is someone wishing to break away from existing government authority.

    SEGREGATIONISTS, by my definition, are those who wish to "separate" the races (which, is a pretty futile concept, without totalitarian government.)

    And NEITHER has to be "violent."

    VIOLENCE is a TOOL. Some use it sparingly, and, for righteous purpose. Some use it often, as a tool for use in almost every situation. And, the rest of us fall along the large area in between the two.....
