The term likely derives from the novel The Catcher in the Rye. A character in the play and film Six Degrees of Separation called Salinger’s novel a “manifesto of hate” against phonies. The term is strictly used in terms of “class struggle” and subcultures within these classes. Pit bull advocates such as Karen Delise refer to DogsBite.org and others who stand up to the pit bull lobby as authoring a “manifesto of hate”.

Ms. Lynn is purposely deceitful. Her information is worst than garbage, it is a manifesto of hate. – Karen Delise
