With the enactment of the Patriot Act in 2001, the legal definition of "terrorism" was expanded to include domestic as well as international terrorism. However, alternative definitions still exist at the FBI, Justice Department, Homeland Security Department, and Defense Department. Some descriptive terms (such as "sub-national," "pre-meditated," "noncombatant," etc.) are present in one definition and absent in others. Furthermore, many law enforcement groups, like the FBI, use the labels of domestic terrorism and violent extremism interchangeably.

Take a close look at that wording people:
"Anti-government extremists" tied in with the "mainstreaming of CONSPIRACY THEORIES".
Now, who exactly, do you think they are trying to insinuate here are "extremists"? Rhetorical question.
While I don't doubt there surely ARE extremists, as we have seen some pretty crazy things happen in recent times, it looks to me like there may be some more painting with a VERY broad brush here, in order to stifle an ever-increasing dissentful populace who are being endlessly rail-roaded by tptb.

Wanna legalize weed/drugs? Wanna stop cutting taxes on the rich? Wanna bring home troops from overseas' occupations, and stop wasting trillions? Wanna end the federal reserves grasp over our declining economy, and them making trillions of dollars in off-the-books transactions each year? Want to free our "democracy" from the rule of lobbyist, bought out politicians, and wealthy elites? Do you use logic? Do you use the rational side of your brain? Do you believe in unalienable human rights? Do you have a soul? If so, then you must be an EXTREMEST, TERRORIST, and an ANTI-humanitarian. The US justice system sentences you to life in solitary confinement. Congratulations.
