    :lol: There's nothing neo about me, nor German for that matter.
    I do not hate in a discriminating manner, but in a Harry Callaghan manner - I hate everyone equally. :yeah: My views on individual subjects are on record here and elsewhere.

    Nothing tops Islamic Fundamentalism - - - - the KKK has nothing on them.

    The question posed is ridiculous. How can one choose a more hated form of 'wrong'? They are all just 'wrong.'

    i never said that CNN is biased. i said that FOX and MSNBC are biased. CNN is neutral.

    the reason why i said that is because you said you hated fundamentalist terrorist, but you also said that the KKK and neo-Nazis are good friends of yours.

    That is a fundamental distortion of what I wrote.
    I wrote that the others could all describe good friends of mine, or me for that matter, except I haven't joined the Klan at any stage :ack:

    Ill-informed and innaccurate individuals could describe various good friends of mine as 'homophobes' or 'Neo-Nazis', or me for that matter. They would be wrong, simplistic and reductionist in doing so. I dislike and indeed hate the act of homosexuality, or indeed the act of any sexuality, but do not fear it, nor is it irrational dislike. My beliefs, and those of my friends and followers, are very much on the far right wing of the political spectrum, but differ from Nazi beliefs and policies in quite a few ways, let alone the difference from Neo-Nazi beliefs and policies.

    As for the Klan, the few people I've met who have been members were quite nice people, and I have no reason to hate them based on their individual beliefs, which are rather at odds with those of much of Klans; they believe in keeping to themselves and their own kind, and I have no problem with their choice. They hadn't been members since the mid 60s for that matter.

    you should have said, "i am almost as right-wing as the other groups.' not, 'the other groups could all describe good friends of mine, or me for that matter...' because the second one implies that you support the KKK/neo-Nazi's. by the way, the KKK wouldn't have been that nice if you were black. i might not be talking to you today if you were black and talking to the Klan.

    also, a 'Homophobe' is a person who is equally as bad as a racist, since what happens when you replace the word 'gay' with the word 'black'? then you get rascism. Homophobes aren't always rascist, but it is just as bad as racism.

    they also say, "White Power" and do the Hitler salute and some wave the Nazi flag alongside the Confederate flag and the American flag.

    :lol: I'm more right wing than them. You aren't able to identify the key word of the sentence - could. Particularly when it is combined with :ack:
    I do not support failures or irrelevant anachronisms; their remnants will support me. :evil:

    That is a nice and pointless statement. Of course they would have been different. But it was not, and never would be; I don't have a skerrick of blood that isn't Anglo-Saxon or Nordic. Nor have the KKK ever been that active in Southern Australia. But certainly, in a completely different circumstance, world, life, body and identity, I can see your point. :rolleyes:

    also, a 'Homophobe' is a person who is equally as bad as a racist, since what happens when you replace the word 'gay' with the word 'black'? then you get rascism. Homophobes aren't always rascist, but it is just as bad as racism.

    That little subsitution job does not apply to me, given the distinction between something someone has no control over, race, and something they have control over, acts of homosexuality. It has nothing to do with questions of race and racialism.

    I can't say I hate one more than the other. They are all equally bad. But if the homophobe is not one that goes aroung beating gay people than I guess he is the "less-worse".

    BTW, the only of this groups that is a real threat is the Fundamentalist Terrorist. The KKK and the Neo-Nazis are anachronical and will soon enough disappear(or at least lose all relevance). The fundamentalists, on the other hand, are on the rise. And what scares me about than is their will to die for thier cause. It's hard to fight suicidal murderous maniacs.

    "they also say, "White Power" and do the Hitler salute and some wave the Nazi flag alongside the Confederate flag and the American flag."

    They're fools - - - most are drunks a lot of them come from poor families. I’m sure this has something to do with it. Even someone from Texas knows the Confederate flag is one of treason. The American flag is dirtied in its presence - - - - - they make me sick.

    I voted KKK.

    Didn't find it a particularly hard decision, considering the options available.

    The KKK isn’t after our planes & buildings, my friend. I think that's a fundamental difference – concentrate on the real threat & you won't be able to sleep at night. Worrying about the Klan stuck out in the hills won't get you anywhere - - -

    I don't hate the KKK or any others in that list because I feel they pose any threat to myself.

    The KKK won't trouble me at all, neither will any neo-Nazis. I don't have anything to fear from homophobes and I don't see anybody hijacking a plane and flying it into Cardiff city centre.

    It's not for me a question of who poses the greatest threat; that's not what the thread title asks.

    My answer is the KKK.

    It's my philosophy that you don't hate people; you hate their actions. I hate all four actions in this poll, but I do not hate the people. I voted for the action that I think has the worst affects, not really the "people I hate the most."

    By Klu Klux Klan, I'll assume you mean white supremacists in general. They aren't really all that bad, at least not as bad as they were in the 50s-60s. They base their dogma on fact, such as there are more blacks on welfare than whites, but then going anywhere from there (such as saying "blacks are parasites living off of this great country," or something like that--just about any racial generalization) is plain ignorant. But they generally don't go around bombing places and beating black kids and stuff (AFAIK).

    As for Neo-Nazis, they're probably even more ignorant than the KKK, but they're certainly not as bad as the original Nazis.

    And then on to homophobes. It depends on whether they simply think gays are bad and leave it at that, or if they beat up, kill, disrespect, etc. gays. Either way it's bad, but when considering they usually base it on religious beliefs that they've been taught by their parents to believe, it's not really "evil" to dislike homosexuality, as long as they give everyone, including gays, respect.

    And lastly, fundamentalist terrorists. Even though everything on this list is wrong, I'd have to say terrorism is the worst. It kills people. It breaks families apart and frightens little children. The other three don't really do that (anymore), or at least not as much. This is the one I voted for. But in theory, all four can be equally bad.
