Neo-Nazis are the most hated group in the world: The World Values Survey asked almost 17,000 people from 11 countries(Azerbaijan, Australia, Armenia, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Georgia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Uruguay) which group they disliked the most. Here is the ranking:


Percent saying the listed group is most disliked:

1. Neo-Nazis/right extremists 26.9
2. Criminals 23.4
3. Guerrillas 9.2
4. Stalinists/hard-line Communists 7.0
5. Drug traffickers 5.5
6. Capitalists 5.2
7. Homosexuals 5.2
8. Immigrants 5.1
9. Para-military 3.7
10. Radical Maori activists 3.2
11. Anarchists/terrorists 2.0
12. Christians 0.6
13. Members of new religions 0.6
14. Kurds 0.5
15. Muslims 0.4
16. Jews 0.4

To Neo-Nazi folks: you know you are not very popular when the world has more regard for criminals, drug lords, and terrorists than for you. Evidently, your Jewish enemies are winning the PR campaign: they're at the bottom of the hate list. Keep in mind that three of the included countries are former Soviet satellites, and they inflated the anti-Nazi number some. Still, the Swiss, for example, are 3.6 times more likely to dislike most the hard Right compared with criminals (67.5% versus 18.6%). Myself, I'm much more fearful of some scumbag attacking my daughter than guys with shaved heads demonstrating for white rights, but maybe I'm odd.

Most of the men who volunteered to fight Hitler prior to Pearl Harbor would be considered "right wing extremists" by today's standards. Had they seen what would happen to their country(ies) during their lifetimes if they won, they probably would have been utterly demoralized.

I looked at the data. You missed the East Germany (1997) results. There neonazis have 75% versus criminals 9%. Albania was reversed 14% disliked the right versus 74% disliking criminals. So having a crime problem helps polish the neonazis' image.


I imagine right wing extremist means something different in Latin American countries than in Australia and yet a third thing in ex-USSR countries. The association neonazi = right wing is not accurate, of course. The labeling of Nazis as right wing was done by their enemies on the left who pushed INTERnational socialism.

Without a doubt. In Latin America "right wing extremist" means death squads and torturers in the service of the wealthy white elite. In the Caucasus it´probably means Russian skinheads who persecute their kinsmen in Russia. In E Germany it probably mainly refers to drunken hooligans who create the inevitable problems that drunken hooligans create and give the people of the fomer GDR a bad name.

I wonder why they didn't poll in Russia, the apparent world capital of violent neo-nazism.

They did poll in Russia. Although it is from 1995. The 1999 survery didn't include the question. Look for yourself:

1. Go to the website
2. Go to Online Data Analysis
3. Look under 1994-1999 For Russian Federation 1995. Click the box
4. Hit the Red 'continue' button
5. Hit #6 Politics and Society
6. Scroll down to 'least liked' and click
7. click marginals for results

It's easy to win the PR campaign when you control the media.

Most neo-nazis movements are Feds purposely acting like idiots.

"Radical Maori Activists"...
I was too curious about this so I delved into it over on the site.

-- 47.6% of total New-Zealand respondents disliked them most (1998).
-- 8.5% of total NZers claimed to dislike "Neo-Nazis" most.

It's interesting how these break down by demographic:

By education. The upper third in educational attainment disliked "Neo-Nazis" by far the most [upper: 15.5%, combined middle/lower: 4.4%], and disliked Radical-Maoris by far the least [upper: 34.7%, lower: 58.9%].

Conclusion: Those with highest education are most PC.

Breaking down further by age and education
We find :
1.) The group that dislikes "Neo-Nazis" the most is the young and educated: Those age 15-29 (i.e., those born 1969-1983) at a rate of 18.6%.
2.) Interestingly, #1 is not a product of simply youth being against "Neo-Nazis": the young of middle and lower educational attainment dislike "Neo-Nazis" less than the overall national average. [Age 15-29 middle/lower education: 6.9%; All ages national-avg: 8.5%].
3.) The group that dislikes Radical-Maori most is lower-education persons aged 30-49 (i.e., born 1949-1968) at a rate of 59.9%.
4.) Interestingly, the group that dislikes Radical-Maori least, out of all combinations of age/education, is the same age-bracket that dislikes them most (#3), but with upper-education. (Aged 30-49 w/Upper-education: 33.5%). NZ baby-boomers are polarized on the Maori Question, it apparently being an SWPL-esque status-symbol to not-dislike them.

By Religion -- Useful because it is the closest proxy for the original NZ settler stock we can get [Protestant].

Protestants
Dislike "Neo-Nazis" the least [Protestant: 6.6%, combined Catholic/Other: 12.1%], and dislike Radical-Maoris the most. 60.1% of Lower-education Protestants dislike Maoris the most, the highest anti-Maori percentage for any two variables I found.
