Once Recruited

Hate groups use techniques similar to religious cults in recruiting and retaining members.

Once involved, the youth are encouraged to isolate themselves from their former lives (parents, family, friends) and to commit full-time to the movement, which often means engaging in illegal activity.

Young people find it difficult, if not impossible, to leave. Hate groups foster an atmosphere of violence, abuse and intimidation, often forcing new recruits to commit criminal and violent acts.

The racists learn so much about the recruit's life, that it is next to impossible to withdraw.

Youthful recruits with second thoughts often find themselves the target of threats and violence if they try to drop out of the scene.
