Of the remaining 10 white supremacist groups, 4 are categorized primarily as “white nationalist,” 3 as “neo-Nazi,” 2 are Ku Klux Klan affiliates, and 1 is labeled as a “racist skinhead” group. Despite the different categorizations, all have expressed racist views.
In 2001, the Southern Poverty Law Center found the following quote on the website of one of those groups, the white nationalist Council of Conservative Citizens: "God is the author of racism. God is the One who divided mankind into different types. ... Mixing the races is rebelliousness against God."
The National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group, supports a specific political platform: “25 Points of American National Socialism.” It includes, among other things, opposition to abortion and euthanasia, “except in cases of rape, incest, race-mixing, or mental retardation”; as well as a demand that “non-Whites shall be prohibited by law from participating financially in or influencing American newspapers.”
Whitakeronline, a white nationalist group in South Carolina, expresses fear over the push to diversify the U.S. A statement on its website says, “Diversity is a code-word for the genocide of white people.”
South Carolina is not unique; states with 20 or more active hate groups include California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Illinois, Virginia, New York and New Jersey.
