Anti-government extremist groups reach record levels, say experts

(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."

The study said California has the most patriot extremist groups, with 81.

The SPLC report also offers a bit of good news: The number of "immigrant-bashing" extremist groups -- so-called nativism organizations -- is way down from 2011, falling by 88%.

The new statistics come after a string of crimes linked to extremist groups. A year ago, a Michigan militia leader and his son pleaded guilty to federal gun charges. Last August, a 40-year-old ex-soldier-turned singer for a white supremacist rock band shot up a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, killing six people, before taking his own life. A few weeks later, a group of Georgia men was linked to an anti-government militia plot to assassinate Obama.

Obama's election as the first African-American president and his pro-gun control stance have fueled the increase in anti-government groups, according to the report.

"We are seeing a huge reaction to the potential for gun control, and that reaction is so angry that it's hard not to be afraid of what's coming down the road," said Mark Potok of the SPLC.

Domestic terror: Are we doing enough?

The rise in such groups echoes a period almost 20 years ago, around the time when Congress passed the 1993 Brady Bill and the 1994 ban on assault weapons, the SPLC said. That legislation came near a period of infamous and deadly anti-government violence in Waco, Texas; Ruby Ridge, Idaho; and Oklahoma City, "and led to the first wave of the patriot movement," the report said.

It doesnt take a government protected nazi rocket scientist to figure out whos paying these so called experts and whos scripts these so called experts are reading and memorizing and quoting from...

I think the current levels of extremist groups being claimed as larger than ever before is just another link in an endless and ever strengthening chain of lies being fabricated and spread by tptb,as they continue relentlessly injecting fear and paranoia into the minds and lives of the american people...

Because back in the mid 1920s,the membership of the klu klux klan numbered around 5,000,000 men,when the entire male and female population of the united states was around 115,000,000 people and with only about 50 million males of all ages living in america a few years after world war one,the klu klux klan,which was an extremist group if there ever was one,contained an incredible 15% to 20% of the entire eligible to join male population in america at the time...

Which dwarfs the supposed numbers of extremist groups supposedly within america now and soon those fabricated people will be demonized as terrorists and more freedom crushing laws will be initiated,as we are intentionally misled closer and closer to the abyss of a new world order of the royal bloodline elites...

Wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that 75% of America doesn't trust the US government.
