In the single most noteworthy piece of journalism this side of the Watergate scandal, Vice magazine's Jamie Taete reached out to a bunch of hate groups to find out if they were drinking the Jennifer Lawrence Kool-Aid like the rest of America. The results are incredible.

Things we learn:

  1. Steve Drain of the Westboro Baptist Chruch loved her in Winter's Bone and totally wants to see The Silver Linings Playbook.
  2. Nation of Islam was not willing to participate in the exercise.
  3. League of the South doesn't want to talk to people from Los Angeles.
  4. Edward McBride of the National Socialist Freedom Movement doesn't like Meryl Streep.

If you've got a few minutes, you should definitely check out the whole collection of Q&As over at Vice. It's high comedy at its finest. [Vice]
