The Threat of Hate Groups and Hate Propaganda

The goal of hatemongers and hate propaganda is to falsely portray a group as inferior, even less than human, undermining the norms and values of a society by potentially taking control of the culture through power or sheer numbers.

Hate propaganda plays on people's doubts and fears. It feeds on misconceptions, increasing barriers to misunderstanding. Hate propaganda contributes to disunity in society, compromises democratic values and maintains inequality and oppression.

When one group is aggrieved, we are all aggrieved. Hate propaganda is not a free speech issue. It is the promotion of hatred against an identifiable minority group and is against the law in Canada.
