" aren't explicitly used.

as part of a stepped-up crackdown on hate speech.

" (advocates a form of segregation in which races would live apart but in the same general geographic area); "white supremacy" (the belief that whites are superior to justify political, economic and social suppression of nonwhite people and other minority groups); "neo-Nazism" (combines racist and white supremacist beliefs with admiration for an authoritarian, totalitarian style of government such as the German Third Reich to enforce its beliefs); and anti-Semitism, which needs no definition.
