Could be anyone really ... What about all the folks who signed the secede petitions? People who visit and comment on sites such as this? What about posts on FB and twitter that are anti Obama or defending the 2nd? People who comment on MSM news articles, alternative news, blogs? Maybe they all can be labeled in certain "groups" as well.
Xenophobia and nativism experienced a re surgence during the Great Depression. California nativists eagerly sought scapegoats to blame for the hard times of the 1930s...California nativists also complained that Mexican immigrants were taking much needed jobs away from American citizens. The federal government responded with a program of mass repatriation...
Generally, Patriot groups define themselves as opposed to the “New World Order,” engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines.
A particularly prominent conspiracy in the antigovernment movement is that the United Nations, which is usually seen as spearheading the “New World Order,” is imposing a global plan, called Agenda 21, to take away citizens’ property rights
Other notable conspiracies found in the antigovernment movement include the idea that the government is secretly planning to round up citizens and place them in concentration camps run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA. Another conspiracy alleges that there are plans to merge the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single country. Fears of impending gun control or weapons confiscations, either by the government or international agencies, also run rampant in antigovernment circles. As a result, many antigovernment activists believe that being well armed is a must. The militia movement engages in paramilitary training aimed at protecting citizens from this feared impending government crackdown.

I hate these idiots labelling them " hate groups" hate is for losers... people need to stand up for real issues.
If the rhetoric that pervades this website is any indication, I'd imagine "hate group" is an accurate description.
If you think about it, the fact of the matter is, NO federal agency has the tiniest bit of authority outside the borders of the District of Columbia! That is where this pseudo government was formed. All that we the people need do is, make it known to them that WE realize this.
In 1783, Congress decided that the nation's capital would move from Philadelphia in 1800. After much debate, members passed the Residence Act, which outlined a ten-miles-square site on the Potomac River along the Virginia– Maryland border, an area that President George Washington had selected. President John Adams was the first leader to govern from Federal City, later named Washington, D.C., in honor of our nation's first president. Today, the city of Washington exists as the District of Columbia (D.C.), the federal district of the United States, named after Christopher Columbus.
