Nashville Hate Watch : Exposing Racist Hate Groups in Our Community

(***Under Construction: This list is long and will take some time to complete. Check back here or contact us for more information***)

This list will be updated periodically. Our goal is to expose and bring attention to known hate groups and individuals that are active in Tennessee.

Vanguard America Vanguard America (VA) is a white supremacist group that opposes multiculturalism and believes that America is an exclusively white nation. Using a right-wing nationalist slogan, Blood and Soil, VA romanticizes the notion that people with “white blood” have a special bond with “American soil.”

Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) – “The Traditionalist Worker Party is a white nationalist group that advocates for racially pure nations and communities and blames Jews for many of the world’s problems. Even as it claims to oppose racism, saying every race deserves its own lands and culture, the group is intimately allied with neo-Nazi and other hardline racist organizations that espouse unvarnished white supremacist views”

***TWP since disbanding has branched off into several new groups: (NI) Nationalist Initiative – Patriots of Appalachia – | Some integrated into League of the South / National Socialist Movement – Some remaining within TWP***
