Anti-government extremist groups increasing, say experts - CNN.com

(CNN) -- The number of American "patriot" extremist groups has reached a record level, according to a new study, and experts are warning of a wave of anti-government violence.
A report released Tuesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center counted 1,360 "patriot" extremist groups in 2012 -- up by 7% from 2011. The study defines patriot groups as anti-government militias driven by their fear that authorities will strip them of their guns and liberties.
"They believe the Constitution is being raped. With hate groups, things are going to get worse because they feel like they're in battle," said David Gletty a former FBI informant who spent time undercover with various militia and extremist groups. "It's not surprising with their hatred of President (Barack) Obama that there are even more hate groups out there."

I realize that in reality some of them probably are but to catagorize all of them as such seems irresponsible.

not only lol at cnn... but the fact that they are calling groups of people who believe in what this country was founded on and in our Constitution to be EXTREMISTS. that is just insane to me, i think we could argue that THEY (the leftists) are the real extremists as they are trying to take away RIGHTS that are guaranteed in our Constitution. and even more importantly, everyone ive been talking to is talking about fighting this by voting out the bad guys, and voting in the good ones (so to speak) no one has been talking about any violent take overs because we are all smart enough to realize that isnt going to work. the only way to make this work in our favor is to fight it in court, and at the polls. and in the mean time we have to inform and educate as many people as possible so we have strength in numbers.

I'm not surprised, but if there are really this many groups, given the fact that anti-government violence is only barely a real thing (how often does it happen?), my conclusion is that membership of these groups is not particularly noteworthy.

"the Southern Poverty Law Center "

There's the first problem.

Second problem - 7% in two years is not substantial enough to note unless you want to scare the misinformed (Oh...wait that's their plan).

Third problem - These groups aren't known to be violent. What makes these "experts" think they'll start now? Oh, that's right, to scare the ignorant.

Fourth Problem - They are not a "hate group"...they aren't targeting a minority, they're disgruntled men and women who want the government to adhere to the Constitution. Holy ****! What an extremist viewpoint!

Fifth Problem - Where does this "informant" get off saying that these people think they're "in battle"?

The propaganda machine is working overtime here guys. Disgusting and pitiful. CNN is such trash.

Pure unadulterated fear mongering by the government's CIA plant channel CNN. Just another excuse to expand upon the NDAA act and the militarization of the USA within it's borders against anyone who does not agree with the decimation of our rights.

Rule #1: Never question the Dear Leader.

Rule #3: You owe your life to the Dear Leader.

Sothern poverty law center is the biggest bunch of liberal commies . They even call catholics militant hate groups. because they are against gay marrige. The order of Mary which is a rosary group of mostly old ladies.

These guys are a joke, and CNN is afreaking joke to even mention them . Go to thier website and look at all the hate groups . The jewish defense leauge which rightfully believes that they should never lay down thier arms ever again to a governmnent. ( can ya blame em??) but thier listed asa hate group. just about any pro gun group is listed as a hate group plus a few more.

Wait until they call the us military an anti government patriot group so they can send their civilian security forces to clash with them.

Amen brother you are preaching to the choir! The government has to label us extremists, zealots, domestic terrorists and/or violent anti-government (even though none of US are) so they have an excuse to target us and eliminate us. There will always be some extremists but we ain't them. They will just make up whatever BS they have to in order to get rid of those that would oppose them. They are just setting us up. CNN is glad to help.
