In the seemingly progressive 21st century, why is hate finding legitimization in a shockingly increasing number of countries? Filmmaker Michael Perlman’s documentary insists that hate has never left us, as figures like Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh had aligned with anti-Semitism and white supremacy respectively, as early as the 1930s. The spurt of immigration and dwindling economies have once again led far-right groups to prominence. ‘The Politics of Hate’ examines the roots of racist, xenophobic, and militant groups in nations like the USA, France, Austria, Poland, Japan, UK, and Greece.
