Is all this paranoia the imperium is warpped in about the Witch, Heretic, and mutant actually boltering chaos in some way? Will it give birth to a Chaos god of fear? Or as stated in another thread it will acend the emepror into a chaos god of hatred? I say chaos god, as in he won't be the benevolent saviour of mankind but a malevolent being that either hates or causes fear in everything
The ironic thing about the Imperium is that it's actually doing what it needs to to survive. The Imperium is evil because being anything else would certainly lead to extinction. Unjust persecution of psykers/witches? Well, uncontrolled psykers tend to lead to planetary daemonic apocalypses. Mutants? Mutation may be a sign of Chaos influencing an area, or else may lead to social destabilization which the Imperium can not afford, as it would throw a wrench into one specific part of the Imperium's already-strained war machine, the onlyshield of humanity against the long night. Heretics? As above, it might destabilize an area of the Imperium, but in this case it is much more immediate, as a mutant may be loyal, but a heretic will try to subvert the Imperium.
As for the Emperor as a Chaos god of hate, I find it hard to see. I don't believe anyone can simply become a Chaos god. They are born out of compound emotion, not of powerful psykers. If a Chaos god of hate was to show up, it would be an entirely new entity. But, since both Eldar and human psykers have failed to notice any sign of this - and believe me, the Eldar don't take the subject likely - I doubt it is about to happen. Ynnead is likely to rise before a human-spawned god of hatred.
In fact it is doubly unlikely as there WAS a chaos god of hatered named Malal and he DIED. So not gona happen.

Also, it's because of Malal that GW very jealously guards all its copyright, even to the extent that if you right for GW, you don't actually own the copyright for what you write, which seems evil, but is just ensuring against another Malal.
FABRICATI DIEM, PVNC
Don't mean to deviate, but what did happen? I never knew about Malal.
to be fair Hate leads to the throne of Khorne and Fear is the realm of Nurgle. Does the Imperium feed chaos? Sure it does, all that hate, fear and hope has to go somewhere!!
I wonder if that was all part of the plan from the start!
Nice idea really..... The Chaos gods give the followers of chaos just enough power and help to kick up some chaos and set everything aflame but not really enough to achieve victory.
The universe endlessly caught up in war and strife as the two factions snap at each others throats, each bitter at the other for what they have done. Everyone dancing as puppets to the tune of their masters, feeding the warp gods! AS THE GALAXY BURNS AROUND THEM!!
Thing is Hate doesn't always lead to rage.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
