on down at the history factory. Hey folks, Things are getting scary in the USA. Hate crimes are on the rise, and everyone
is really scared for what next year means for many Americans’ basic civil rights. As my submission for the project for awesome,
I talked about the Southern Poverty Law Center; a group that actively teaches tolerance and
cracks down on hate groups across the United States. I decided that to go along with it, I want
to talk about these hate groups the SPLC fights every day. This is the history of American hate groups. Anti-Immigrant
Let’s start with anti-immigrant groups. Today, anti-immigrant sentiment is on the
rise, and in some areas, like the southern borderlands, armed ‘minutemen’ travel
to look for anyone who dares sneak into their country. This whole sentiment though, is pretty old,
and comes up over and over in US history. The term commonly used for these types of
sentiments is nativism. It comes from groups in the 1840s and 1850s
who wanted to keep America for those descended from the original 13 colonies. But the feeling goes back way further. We even have writings from Ben Franklin about
how uncomfortable he was with German immigrants moving into Pennsylvania. In 1798, the Federalist government passed
the Alien and Sedition acts, specifically to take citizenship rights away from immigrants
coming in at the time from France and Ireland. Anti-immigrant sentiment picked up even more
steam in the 19th century, when large inflows of Irish catholics agitated anti-catholic
sentiment. Nativists worried that these new foreigners
would be more loyal to the pope in Rome, than the United States. Anti-catholicism lasted a long time! People were saying this about JFK! In the 1850s the American or Know Nothing
Party was founded on the principles of being against immigration. There was also the Immigration Restriction
League of the 1890s that wanted to do basically the same thing. In the west, the Chinese Exclusion Act of
1882, and the Gentleman’s Agreement of 1907 were put in place to stop immigration from
China and Japan. Today, we are in the middle of a growing anxiety
about Mexican immigration, despite Mexican immigration being at a net negative for a
couple years now. Because of growing hate of Muslims, immigrants
from Muslim majority countries have also resulted in some calling for an immediate and complete
shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. You know, until we know what’s going on. President Barack Obama’s administration
was constantly accused of being a secret immigrant, and, well, whatever President Trump has said
this week. Ku Klux Klan:
The next group we’re going to talk about is the ever so charming Ku Klux Klan. Here’s a link to a playlist of videos where
we’ve talked about them before. The Klan is a reactionary terrorist group,
always calling for a ‘purification’ of American Society. The Ku Klux Klan got it’s start in the late
1860s in the southern United States. For a period of about 10 years, they attempted
to overthrow Republican state governments, and reinstate white supremacist rule during
reconstruction after the Civil War. They had many chapters around the country,
and committed many acts of violence against black political leaders. They wore colourful costumes, robes, masks,
and conical hats in order to be terrifying and hide their identity. This klan was suppressed in 1871 by federal
law enforcement. They would return in 1915, in what historians
call the second klan. They flourished in the mid 1920s in urban
areas around the west and the midwest. They were extremely opposed to the influx
of catholics and Jews into their communities. This klan was the one that introduced the
standardized white robes, the code words, the cross burnings, and the massive parades. They began to decline by the late 20s due
to work by groups like the Anti-Defamation league and the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People. The 1925 murder trial of Grand Wizard D.C.
Stephenson didn’t help them either. The Klan went back into decline until its
current manifestation began to show its face in the 1950s. The third klan grew as a patchwork of small,
unconnected groups in opposition to the civil rights movement. These guys really ramped up the violence and
murder. Even today, they have between 3 and 6 thousand
active members across the United States. Neo-Confederates:
There are a few groups here that use historical denialism, usually in efforts to ignore their
own dark history, and sometimes to reinforce racist beliefs. Neo-confederates really do fit this bill. Their story begins with the beginning of the
lost cause myth in the 1890s. For about forty years, there was an effort
to reframe the Civil War in which seceding was not a form of rebellion. The big groups that pushed for this are the
Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the United Daughters of the confederacy. In the 1910s, they called for essays about
the ‘glory’ of the KKK and tributes to loyal slaves.They try to downplay the role
of slavery in the war, and espouse the virtues of Confederate generals. They try to frame the Confederacy in the language
of chivalry, and condemn the actions of reconstructions. Most historians point out this is a rationalization
at best, and an intentional coverup at worst. Modern day Neo-confederates try to honour
the confederacy and its veterans, but also seem to have a lot of other aspects to their
ideology. A Fundamentalist belief in free market economics
for example. They hold their own history that is critical
of Abraham Lincoln, emphasizes the atrocities against southern civilians, and conspicuously
remove discussions of slavery. Many were against the civil rights movement,
advocate for a ‘christian’ culture, reinforce traditional gender roles, oppose homosexuality,
and sometimes just flat out prefer segregation and secession. Holocaust Denial:
Holocaust denial. I imagine this needs little introduction. Groups like the Institute for Historical review
have tried to deny the Genocide of Jews and other groups in the Holocaust. They claim that the final solution was about
deportation, that there were no extermination camps, or that the 5-6 million dead count
is just exaggerated. They are called Holocaust deniers, because
revisionist history is something different. Revisionists try to upturn established histories
using credible methodology. A Holocaust denier, much like a climate change
or evolution denier, has a predetermined conclusion, and ignores overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Most denialists claim some sort of vast Jewish
conspiracy designed to advance Jews at the expense of everyone else. I think I speak for many by saying that this
entire movement is based on antisemitic conspiracy theories. Neo-Nazi:
The next group on our depressing parade are Neo-Nazis. Kinda self explanatory, but Neo-Nazi is a
term for anyone attempting to revive the far right tenets of nazism after World War Two. It’s an ideology of ultra-nationalism, racism,
ableism, xenophobia, homophobia, antiziganism (aka hatred of Romani people), Antisemitism,
and Holocaust denial. Often they enjoy using nazi symbolism, and
have an admiration for Adolf Hitler. According to the SPLC, there are about 400
Neo-Nazis in America. They began to show up in about 1958 in the
National States Rights Party. They were strongly against racial integration. In 1959, the American Nazi party was founded. Since then, Neo-Nazis have been found harassing
and tormenting Jews, Black Americans, Slavic Americans, Latinx people, Native Americans,
Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Romani Americans, Homosexuals, and whatever their definition
of a ‘race traitor’ is. They typically stay underground, preferring
to recruit and raise funds in secret. And speaking of raising funds… Racist Music:
Oh yeah, there’s an entire industry of racist record labels. They began in the United Kingdom in the early
80s, but in the early 90s it exploded into a multimillion dollar worldwide industry. It began as hard rock, nicknamed hatecore,
but has since branched out to many musical forms. These bands are a conduit for recruits and
money into these sorts of racist hate groups. Skinheads:
You’ve likely heard the term Skinhead before. They are a strange group, and extremely internally
divided. They began in the 1950s as a group of disaffected
working class youth in the UK. Not necessarily political in any way. In the early 70s though, the UK saw a rise
in racist skinhead violence. The association quickly built between them
and the far right. By the late 70s, the two identities were inseparable,
and it hopped the Atlantic. I should point out though that there are also
skinheads opposed to the racism and who try to fight it whenever they can. They go by the label Skinheads against Racial
Prejudice, or SHARP. They actually try to emphasize the biracial
origins on the subculture, and dress in this fashion to get rid of hierarchy and imbalances
of power. Christian Identity:
So this group of reprobates have developed a white supremacist form of christianity. They believe that Anglo-Saxon, German, and
Nordic people are kindred, and descendants of the ancient Israelites. Usually they claim them as the direct descendants
of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They think of Europeans as the chosen people,
and Jews as the cursed offspring of Cain and Abel. They think that in order to build the heavenly
kingdom, all non whites need to be exterminated or enslaved, and that they could never get
salvation. Real charmers. Radical Traditional Catholicism:
These radical Catholics may be the single largest group of serious anti-semites in the
US. They reject the edicts of the second Vatican
council that explicitly states that Jews are not to be collectively blamed for the death
of Christ. MEL GIBSON. The leaders of this group are often rejected
by the Vatican and by mainstream Catholics. They are also not to be mistaken for traditionalist
Catholics that really just like the Latin mass. Anti-LGBT:
Hating on homosexuals has for a while now been a central theme of the christian right. And I am not just referring to the social
justice training wheels the Westboro Baptist Church. These groups, which are far from marginalised,
believe that there is some sort of decline in American society and culture, and that
homosexuals are the reason why. These types of believers are all over the
country, some are even Vice Presidents of the United States! The main tactic that anti-LGBT activists employ
is defamation. It is a common practice to call LGBT people
perverts, or claim they have filthy habits. They spread falsities that gay people are
going around trying to ‘convert’ hapless people into gay sex. A lot of the language is actually quite similar
to the scientific racism days, when white intellectuals wrote about ‘bestial’ black
men. Black Separatists:
Black separatists are a subset of black nationalists. They oppose racial integration, and reject
intermarriage. They call for separate institutions or a separate
state for Black people in America. Often, a healthy dose of anti-semitism is
thrown in for good measure. Some religious versions of the groups go with
the chosen people of god route as well, also of course at the expense of Jews. One example of these sorts of groups is the
Nation of Islam. The leader, Louis Farrakhan calls Judaism
and Catholicism ‘gutter religions’, and is against interracial relationships. If the colours had been swapped, few would
have issues with calling a group like the Nation racist and anti-semitic. These groups are by a titanic margin a microscopic
minority of black people, even black nationalists in America. This has no association with Black Lives Matter,
and we have to be more than a little aware that this hatred comes from the endurance
of centuries of racism, and a rather understandable concept that white people are out to keep
them oppressed. White Nationalism:
White nationalists are a group that conflates national identity with race. They desire a separate white state that only
extends citizenship to white people. It comes from events such as the Naturalization
Act of 1790, which was the first act to define American citizenship. Lo and behold, citizens were only free white
people. Other historical figures such as slavery defender
John C Calhoun have also defined citizenship on racial grounds. Islamophobic Groups:
Since 2001, Muslims in America have been under attack. Politicians, and media figures have spread
a false assertion that Muslims are conspiring to take over the US, or that they all secretly
want to impose Shariah law on everyone. There has been a huge uptick in hate crimes
since 9/11, and even more since the beginning of a certain presidential candidate’s campaign. Some bigots have even called for a total and
complete shutdown, of Muslims entering the United States. Anti-Muslim groups have been popping up around
the country, espousing these beliefs, and often protesting Mosques, usually while armed. The Alt-Right:
Our last stop on this tour that was honestly soul crushing to research is the Alt-Right. It’s a blanket term that covers many far
right ideologies that reject mainstream conservatism. White NAtionalism is fundamental, but they
also typically oppose immigration, multiculturalism, and political correctness. Typically, they are associated with white
supremacism, Islamophobia, Anti Feminism, Homophobia, Antisemitism, Ethno Nationalism,
Right Wing Populism, Nativism, Traditionalism, and ‘neoreactionaries’. They grew in online communities. Places like 4chan, and 8chan incubated many
members, and they often communicate with internet memes. Their news source of choice is Breitbart,
and they are all over the Twitters. Most notably, they have thrown their undying
support behind president-elect Donald F—ing Trump. So far, he’s even picked members of his
cabinet, such as Jeff Sessions and Steve Bannon, that would seem to show that the Alt-Right
has an ally in the white house. Closing:
I think the main takeaway from our tour of these groups, is that the United States is
a place where racism, bigotry, and prejudice is still around. It is not a post-racial society, and thinking
so is to put denial on real threats to democracy. If you want to combat these groups, consider
donating to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Their work is going to be sorely needed in
the years to come. I really only did the briefest of descriptions
of these groups. If you want me to delve deeper into any one
of them, let me know down in the comments. If you’d like to help the channel, consider
making a small recurring donation to Step Back on Patreon. If you still want to help, but can’t or
don’t want to do so financially, share it with someone, like the video, and be sure
to subscribe to get the next Step Back.

  • For whatever dark reason in our reptile brains, hate is a common thread throughout our story. This series delves into this horrific part of the human experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul0iwsMWKdM&list=PLnpoOo7lhNnHcuLeGJjhiXzIHHiYGixuj

  • #RacistTele lol

  • Oh look! ratings are disabled! Gotta love it

  • ..Don't feel obligated to justify the Nation of Islam, there isn't a rational way to. Their bigotry extends beyond far beyond just hating white people.

  • was that a flash of turkish flag?

  • Where can I donate to combat blm

  • You put a photo of Trump next to members of the KKK knowing that the KKK is a democrat organization and talk about the nazism as Alt Right knowing that nazism and all forms of facism are leftwing inclined ideologies. There's just too much bais in this channel. Feel a bit like liberal fairy tale propaganda.

  • You claim that holocaust deniers have a pre determined conclusion but this is definitely not true for me and also not true for many others I have spoken to. I didn't grow up in a 'bigoted' household that denied the holocaust or hated the Jews. I went through school like everyone else and learned about the holocaust in History class and watched the Hollywood movies about the holocaust and believed every word of it. I used to cast all those people who denied the holocaust and discussed the Jewish Question as hateful idiots without even looking at any of their writings or arguments. It was only after I viewed their arguments with an open mind that things started to click and make sense to me, and this was very difficult for me since I had been taught my whole life that evil Nazis had killed 6 million Jews.

  • I'm dying laughing. The alt-right can become extreme, but it's usually a bunch of jokers. I'm not with them, however. Also, while I hate Islam as a religion, I'm fine with Muslims.

  • While I am sure the SPLC does a lot of good work they also manage to label ex muslims/and secular muslims as bigots when they speak out against some of the more conservative practices of fundamental Islam.

  • Instead of donating to the SPLC donate to the ACLU. The ACLU is much better at protecting civil liberty, the SPLC is a radical far left organization that allies itself against liberal values and secular muslims who speak out against radical conservative Islam.

  • I still don't understand why people disable the dislike-like bar. :L Who cares if you have alot of people bombing the bar to shit? If your points are sound that should be enough to convince enough people so the bar is half and half at least.

  • I'm sorry but after sieving through your sources, I couldn't find any that would become the base for the depiction at 6'15" . Also, using wikipedia as a source is painfully unprofessional at best.

  • ok so we're 8 min in and we haven't even begun to talk about the alt right yet. I see why you disabled you like/dislike.

  • "ableism"
    Oh my, I didn't see that coming.
    Get it? See? Cuz blind people.
    You're such a great historian, SBH. Do you learn everything off of Tumblr, or does your professor wear a scarf indoors?

  • Nice title. Disingenuous much?

  • So you forgot the new black panthers party and antifa? Also racism is not a problem except from democrats and "liberals" it's becoming a problem because you help contribute to everyone think yes racism is still alive and well. These modern day hate groups are trolls that don't believe in supremacy of any race or sex, actually listen to Sargon of Akkad. We say this shit as jokes. Also we don't subscribe to Marxism and your corrupt politician. I would have voted for trump because he didn't except money from lobbyists and anyone else. I found him a refreshing figure from usually corrupt politicians. But can we all agree the federal reserve is what is going and is ruining this country?

  • I support immigration as long as they support American ideals and values and are more loyal to the United States than their home country, as well as to be able to support the country.
    Otherwise go away.

  • Let me guess. Are you a normie?

  • #notallPepes

  • The travel ban is not a product of anti-muslim sentiment but of anti terrorism. How come Christians from the muslim-majority countries are also being stopped from immigrating to the US. And how come countries like Indonesia and Malaysia aren't in the band?

  • Your analysis is completely flawed because you attribute large swathes of stuff to just 'racism', without looking into any of the actual reasons people may be objecting to certain things.

  • Racism is wrong but I think the way you've created this video portrays people of Faith, & people who are skeptical about Climate Change, & Macro-Evolution or think Anal Sex has serious medical implications as Racist, & or hateful people.

    Also, it seems that you are portraying people who want reasonable immigration reform as racist.

    Legitimate Racism, & Hatred should be opposed but trying to bundle in innocent people through word play is wrong.

    Christians, & Climate Change Skeptics shouldn't be equated to the likes of people who advocate for Genocide or Murder of Others.

    This comment is not meant to entice hatred but rather to be critical, & suggest that some changes in this video may need to be done so average people aren't bundled in with extremists.

  • Normie alert


  • Why remove so many comments?

  • The SPLC and the ADL are actually anti freespeech hate groups. They defame everyone who dares to have 'impermissible' opinions.
    This so called historian is also working along with these hate groups, I wouldn't watch or support his content. Unless if you're also anti white.

  • I can't help but notice you left out AntiFA. The BIGGEST HATE GROUP IN AMERICA

  • nazi is not right,is left

  • "Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society"

  • My interest in your videos ended when you brought up the splu. They are a leftist propaganda group. I am out.

  • SPLC is garbage. So are you.

  • Using "Latinx" un ironically should be a capital crime. Chicanos are not real Mexicans and it shows
    Also, did you really used the Reddit Mascot as the face of the Alt-Right? Only shows how little you know about that

  • Oh boy, another video by a blinkered progressive! Any video which starts by espousing the SPLC and its 'Hate List' has to be a pile of shit. I suggest you look at De Souza's work on how the Democratic party is actually the party which has deep roots to national socialism and fascism. The Democratic party resisted every attempt by Republicans to introduce civil rights in the USA. Get off your high horse and read up on this stuff. If you are a historian then it's clear you are only reading revisionist bull crap. Anyone who doesn't agree with the belief systems of progressives are deemed to be Alt Right. Saying an individual or a group is 'Alt Right' is no different to blaming problems on 'The Jews' or 'White Supremacists'. It's a technique for denigrating, and thus neutralizing those with differing opinions.

  • The heck is ableism

  • I don't see how any of these people have views that are any more or less rational than anyone elses.
    I'm beginning to understand that the term hate group is basically just a way to libel people who dissagree with you.

    If I were to create a group protesting islamic inspired atrocities in the muslim world, and encouraging wariness of uncontrolled entry, citing almost weekly incidents, governement policies and colloqial practices, it would be labeled a hate group that generalizes all arabs even though most muslims arent arab.

    Moreover it isnt faur to compare todays anti mexican immigration movement with earlier nativism.
    Mexican immigrants have managed to carve out a much larger percentage if the american population than any of tge previous groups and in such a short time as to destabilize the economy.
    This exacerbates the problems of integration which are already strained by prevailing views and a language barrier.

    Seriously noone complained when we put into law the 15% tax for foreign bought/sold realestate in order to curb the encroachment of chinese millionares in the suburbs thereby inflating realestate prices and driving out the americans. Moreover the fact that they dont culturally integrate but have no problem giving their kids that lucrative US citizenship.

    Because its a legitimate issue and its harmful to many Americans.

  • It's funny that you decided to omit the fact that KKK is full of democrats, and if you fell for the lie of "the great party switch" then you'll have to explain why Hillary Clinton considered as her mentor the late Robert Byrd, a member of the Klan.

  • The SPLC is incredibly prejudiced against even mainstream conservatives.

  • I was hoping for more history. This was just a brief overview of what you believe some of their beliefs are without really getting into why they believe them or what lead to their rise. You can also smell the strong stench of your political biases coming through. I find that kind of inappropriate for what I would say is an otherwise historically minded person. This is why we can't have nice things.

  • This is the 2nd video I've watched from "Step Back History". This one is probably 1/3 truth and 2/3 revisionist. The SPLC labels anyone who falls outside of the Alt Left as bigots, racists and all "phobics". Its nothing but a clearing house for Alt Left political narratives. I wouldn't trust 75% of what the SPLC spews. The biggest tip that "Step Back History" has a HUGE BIAS is this video was pretty much a commercial for Hillary and Democrats. Is that why this video failed to point out that Reconstruction was halted by the Democrats and the KKK was formed by Democrats and the post reconstruction Jim Crow South was run by Democrats?

  • So listing a summary of hate groups is a definition of the alt-right?

  • Well no shit God is responsible for the death of JesusAs it's his fault sinners even exists

  • I've found that society is like DNA. The more diverse in all factors it is, the stronger it is.

  • Nice try, but the Left is by far America's biggest hate group.

  • Wow, I'm surprised that someone can actually name so many of these various historical groups and get so much wrong about who they are/were and what they represent.

    Warning: This video is mostly incorrect and many of the groups mentioned weren't or aren't even hate groups at all. It relies heavily on the SPLC.

  • SPLC is a joke. It's a con job on a large scale. When you quote them you automatically lose credibility.

  • why can't we all agree that "Alt-Right" is cringy as fuck

  • Im republican and honestly trump is stupid but 4chan and Reddit are in most ways not racist and those memes are mostly very sensitive jokes (most of the time) and plus the only "anti feminism" is against the ones that commonly say the whites should be exterminated and that white males should have less rights than everyone else while saying their pushing for equality and last alt right is pretty much just racist groups like the Kkk and other similar groups and if anything Feminazis would probably fit there to

  • You lost me at Latinx

  • This was the most biased display of "history" I've seen in my life. There are people in the Alt-Right against racism but have Conservative Right beliefs. As goes for the Left. There is just as much hatred such as BLM and ANTIFA. While they're ideas are valid, the way they try to get them are violent and crude. Just like the "Alt-Right". And there are also exceptions on the left as there are on the right. But did you mention that? No. History is supposed to be as unbiased as we can possibly make it so we can learn effectively but you just muddied the waters.

  • many of your points are valid however I'd like to talk with you about the facton in the alt right hmu at this email address

  • 15:35 So I see North-eastern Nevada looks mighty good this time of decade.

  • forgot to mention that the kkk now accepts black peoples 😉

  • *rubs hands*

  • well political correctness is usually being racist and or sexist against certain groups so I'd say it's a bad thing and I'd rather have Trump than Hillary the other main candidate because her husband most likely raped someone but she is totally fine with that, and I've read that her political mentor was literally the former grandwizard of the kkk which is you know a bit of a issue.

  • I'm anti-human; I hate the human race as a whole.

  • You should stick to history that you understand instead of doing some generalized, delusional layman waxing on a topic like the alt-right, and portraying it to everyone as historical expertise.

  • Given the fervent militarism and ultranationalism of Japan and China in the early 1900s, it may not be "racist" or "xenophobic" to have exclusion acts at the time. You should really understand the climate at the time. Not everything can be explained by one word answers.

  • This guy is an absolute clown.

  • So… What is the alt-right anyway? Who coined this term? Why is it called "alt"-right? Why is Trump green in the thumbnail picture? You see, in a video supposedly about the alt-right, I'd expect at least these basic questions answered. But then you added a title complement – "the history of hate groups in the US" veer into another direction, completely forget the original premise of your thesis, and get lost in another point (the history of hate groups) until the last minute, when you play lip service to your original promise to your viewers. The video started as an instruction piece, but metamorphized into a rant about hate groups that make you angry and make you hate them back.

    A couple observations, though. So, a group of patriots who call themselves Minutemen patrol the borders (when they could be at home enjoying life with their family) to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the US, and that's bad and wrong because… I'm sorry, this is not my culture so we may be having a cultural schock, but I don't get it. In fact I would recommend building statues for the Minutemen, but since Americans are very good at taking statues down, but not at actually putting them up (that requires a positive sentiment of honoring the past), perhaps a different kind of homage would be more appropriate.

    Just for the record, I'm from Latin America. I entered the US several times in the last 30 anos and no Minuteman has ever tried to stop me. But then, there's the naive detail that I did it legally and never overstayed my welcome.

    There's something I want to make crystal clear. Since I'm Latino Americano, (not LatinX AmericnX) I feel I have more authority than you toexplain this. And I hope I don't have to repeat myself. Pay attenttion:

    This mistake comes from the fact that most words in English are gender neutral. So, Greek, Mexican or Asian can refer to both the only two genders that exist. But when it comes to an expression in Spanish, you should say "LATINOS".And this is not sexist. It's in our culture. You see, in romance languages even cupc and saucers have genders. So, a cup is "she", a saucer is "he". A fork is a "he". A knife is "she". Easy, easy…

    Overal, you do a good job presenting hate groups, as somebody who is not from or does not live in America, admires your country, I'm surprised you forgot to include radical left-leaning militant militias. If you had included "AntiFa" but they are anti-fascists? And they wear masks to evade the authorities, so they must be the good guys, right? Wrong.Antifa causes physical attacks against people not directed in involved with National Socialism and the destruction of private property.

    If you had included AntiFa causing a major speaker they hate to hear speaking to be forbidden from speaking in th university of Berkeley, homossexual activist and journalist Milo Yiannopoulos , we would've thought, hey, this youtuber is honest and not blinded by partisanship. He calls it as he sees it He mercilessly exposes all the rotten in America, be it in the right or the left, whether that's the work of men, women, or something in between, rich or poor, smart or stupid.

    So for next video, include the hate groups of America that you forgot : AntiFa and BLM/BAM – "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon".

    Finally, you video seems to suggest the Civil War happened solely because of slavery. No. The North and the South had very different forms of development. The North had received direct benefits from the Industrial Revolution and was getting industrialized, o it made more sense, in a growing capitalist system, to pay salaries. Which was good for them: the capitalists saw the workers as spare parts to be replaced in case one broke. The South, on th other hand supported recession in the name of state rights and autonomy. In that case, they fought to keep slavery in the states and economy sectors that necessitated slaves to work and so wished to continue. But in reality, just a small percentage of the Southeners possessed slaves.

  • Why didn't you include that kkk was democrat invention

  • I am annoyed you used Pepe the frog for the thumbnail!

    it's bad enough that the Nazis could use the swastika for a decade and ruin the symbol otherwise used for thousands of years by various other cultures and religions.

    let's not give these asshats ownership of any more symbols… not all pepes are alt-right ones.

  • 3:00 a the retards who cant spell…

    CLAN!!! WITH A C!!!
    KKC not KKK.

    it's like when someone is doing numerology and comes up with 665 and fudges the numbers to make it 666… and it's bullshit!

  • 4:14 don't forget superman!!! he started out fighting the "Clan" with a C… fucking retards that can't spell!
    the radio show would reveal their code word and hand signals striping them of their anonymity and secrecy.

    You know your fucked when superman comes for you! lol….

    would be funny to see the injustice version of that superman going berserk lololol…. fucking pencil heads running around on fire lolololol….

  • KKK formed by Democrats. You omit this fact.

  • Anti Capitalism and Collectivism are Left as is the Alt Right who espouses these values. The Alt Right is undeniably left.

  • So you're pretty much just copy/pasting the SPLC?

    It's a wealth of information, but comeon, do some broader research.

  • I'm a black separatist, I have no problem with Jews though. Black separatism also tends to have a large misogynistic and homophobic element which I'm against. I think Black Americans deserve our own state, it was promised and honestly, prejudice against our ethnic group specifically is too systematically a part of this nation marching and white allies to help. And we're not Africans and would wind up likely being an outsider minority in an African country as well.

  • That's the demos

  • Interesting how people try to oversimplify things with terms like "alt right". even moderate conservatives and libertarians often get lumped in with them despite having nothing to do with these groups.

  • Dude, Seriously? Why not define "hate group" before you start labeling all western identitarian groups as "hate". And you use several false analogies. For instance: historic immigration groups are the same as current immigration groups. You assume all immigration is the same and all immigrants equally able to blend with western society. These are false assumptions and you simplify the reasons that an American would speak out about current immigration. This video is just bullshit. It's the same, "oh, if you even want to have a conversation about immigration you "hate" and "Jews" and "hate". It's just bullshit. Bad form

  • "What is the Alt Right?" Just go to the youtube comments section lol.

  • In my home state of indiana, the klan in the 1950s used to be a huge political force in indiana politics. It died out when D.C. Stephenson was convicted of rape and murder.

  • if you havent already, can you do a video explaining sharia law simply? so i can show some of my crazy republican friends?

  • actually Skinhead culture start in Jamaican, and listen to ska music. the original skinhead were a anti racist group before america changed the name

  • I guess right wingers are crying when they see some facts that are unbiased and supported by historical documents. If they researched a little after they listened to their favourite fascist commentator/fake news site (like Alex Jones or Breitbart); they wouldn't be so butthurt when they see reality.

  • The Christian Identity Movement might be…interesting.

  • Gonna be unpopularly honest, not all white nationalists are hateful. Their ideas are wrong but i've met white nationalists who wished me no ill. They're an archaic group of people stuck in the past, who probably became the way they were from various moments in life.

  • Do a video on "Anarcho"-Capitalists and a video on Right "Libertarians", how they came to be, and expose their disgusting beliefs? =]

  • Neoconfederates aren't for free market economics. They favor protectionism, economic nationalism, mercantilism, and in some cases corporatism. The South was rampantly anticapitalist during the Civil War.

  • Everything was good up until the black nationalist thing if you wanted to do that or say anything about that it's not a good idea to put that in an alt right video no disrespect to you I just thought that was kind of weird. Plus don't put them unequal plains of all rights or any of these other Groups black people don't have the same power as whites do as far as suppression and white supremacy goes so if you want to do something on black separatist group a video on that that would make more sense than just to put them in The same video as an old right subject matter. I'm not hating on you I did your content but as a black man that is against racism and white supremacy and understands why there is groups like the nation of Islam I find that kind of disingenuous to be honest

  • You know it's gotta be goopd when he disables the ratings.

  • I say someone should lock these groups up.

  • The Klan's first slogans were 'America First' and 'Make America Great Again', I shit you not.

    And the reason for such an uptick in Klan activity in 1915 was because the horrifically racist and offensive movie, Birth of a Nation, was released – even after much warning and protest by W.E.B. Dubois and the NAACP.
    This movie portrayed blacks as terrifying animals, rapists, and criminals, while praising the KKK as galiant protectors of white women and as angels neutralizing the threat blacks posed to the American Way of Life™.

    The Daughters of the Confederacy, a group of well-to-do racists socialites, are also to blame for the revisionist history (like history books insisting that slaves were happy and healthy and perpetuating the myth of Northern Aggression and other Lost Cause battle cries) seen in textbooks (even to this day!) in almost all states below the Mason-Dixon Line.
    This group of women were also responsible for campaigning for funds that allowed the erection of hundreds of statues lionizing and deifying traitorous Confederate soldiers, many statues that still remain throughout the South to this day.
    As for the present huge amount of immigrants and refugees at our Southern border, we can directly blame the last century of US trade deals, political/economic iterventions and imperialism in South and Central America.


  • Nerdfighters where y’all at!!!!

  • Nazi's are not far right you have that completely wrong

  • 11:08 when we were screaming "Pence needs to go!!" we meant from Indy, not to DC…


  • Those Christian (and Catholic) groups mentioned in this video don't sound very Christian at all. What happened to Jesus' teaching of love and compassion for the marginalized? Like, how did they twist the message so far? That, and I'm pretty sure (most of) the people in the Bible weren't white, lmao.

  • as a sharp thanks for the nod

  • I'm just glad you got the skinheads right. So many people equate skinheads with neo Nazism. Which I guess is understandable under the circumstances. But they started out as fans of ska music. I mean of course old ska , not The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Which is Jamaican music. Early film footage of skinheads is full of black and white people together, enjoying the music they love. It's multicultural by definition.

    Not that I'm a skinhead. It's just such a common misunderstanding.

  • Latinx; a person of Latin American origin or descent (used as a gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino or Latina). As in
    "the books share stories of the civil rights struggle for African Americans, Latinxs, and LGBTQ people.” Relating to people of Latin American origin or descent (used as a gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino or Latina). As in "a unique Latinx perspective that other shows don't really capture"

  • Bravo for being one of the very few individuals/channels that make a point to clarify the roots and origins of the Skinhead subculture. Often tiresome to see “historians” or “documentarians” failing to address these things and just stating “Skinheads=Nazis” with ZERO clarification, or seeing the trajectory and rhetoric used by the NF in the 70s.
