Number Of "Patriot" Groups Skyrockets In Washington State

May 2, 2013

Three in 10 registered American voters believe an armed rebellion might be necessary in the next few years according to pollsters at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Anti-government extremism has grown in other ways too.  Here in Washington state, the number of anti-government patriot groups has grown from two in 2008 to 52 in 2012, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Ross Reynolds talks with Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the non-profit, civil-rights organization about the center’s latest findings. Ross is also joined by Ayn Dietrich from Seattle’s FBI to talk about how they are handling the rise in anti-government groups.
