    I responded. Unless I misunderstood the question and he wanted list from within the report. I support these groups existing, for many reasons, and I would not call them nuts or paranoid.
    From what I can tell, Rev wanted evidence for this "explosion" leading up to the election, inspired by Obama -- as in, increases in the past couple of years.

    Just about everything on your list has existed for quite a bit longer than that, for decades in many cases. They had nothing to do with Obama or the upcoming election, and they do not represent an "explosion" or even an "uptick" in activity.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    I see a pretty clear motivation here.

    So, which ones DON'T do what you're "concerned about," and how prevalent are they among the movement? No mind-reading -- just spell it out.

    You are way more generous than me. They constitute a direct threat to the United States of America. I want them eliminated.

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    So SPLC listed these groups as "patriot" groups in quotes? Many of these people are indeed patriots and when the **** hits the fan, they may just save your ass, whether it be the zombie apocolypse or a tornado.
