SPLC Sends Eric Holder a Letter Warning That “Conspiracy Minded Groups” are Growing in Numbers

By JG Vibes

The SPLC has pulled a new publicity stunt to attack “patriot” groups and “conspiracy minded” people in the US, equating them with domestic terrorists.  They sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder (one that he was probably expecting) noting a rise in anti government sentiment, and pointing out that a good portion of this was a result of recent gun control measures.

The Examiner Reported that:The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary (DHS) Janet Napolitano today that warned of “patriot groups” and domestic terrorism.

“The number of conspiracy-minded antigovernment ‘Patriot’ groups on the American radical right reached an all-time high in 2012, the fourth consecutive year of powerful growth by a movement that is becoming increasingly militant as President Obama enters his second term and Congress debates gun control measures,” the SPLC said in a press release today.

In the letter, the SPLC asked the department to “establish an interagency task force to assess the adequacy of the resources devoted to responding to the growing threat of non-Islamic domestic terrorism.”

“In the last four years, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of conspiracy-minded, antigovernment groups as well as in the number of domestic terrorist plots,” SPLC President and CEO J. Richard Cohen wrote.” As in the period before the Oklahoma City bombing, we now also are seeing ominous threats from those who believe the government is poised to take their guns.”
