In an article on The Blaze today titled, Southern Poverty Law Center Chronicles ‘Explosive’ Rise in Radical Anti-Government ‘Patriot Movement’, we can see an alarming redefining of constitutional patriots.
-The Southern Poverty Law Center — a left-leaning nonprofit that monitors groups it deems hateful and extremist, including the Ku Klux Klan, New Black Panther Party and Aryan Nation — tracked 1,360 such groups in 2012, up from 1,274 in 2011 and a meteoric surge from 149 in 2008.
