Here is my best explanation:

This clue might be a double definition.

'what's the subject' is the first definition.

('theme' can be a synonym of 'subject')

'groan from hatemonger?' is the second definition.

The definition and answer can be both related to communication as well as being singular nouns.

Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'of' is the link.
