Some 100 new militia groups have formed since the election of President Barack Obama, says the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In a re-run of the phenomenon seen when President Bill Clinton took office, gun-rights advocates, libertarians, survivalists and others are forming militias as a symbol of their resistance to what they see as an administration that threatens to restrict their right to bear arms and expand government control over the lives of private citizens.

Segment titled "Patriots or Extremists?"...
Clearly this is being used as propaganda:
1) Demonize patriot movements, make anyone who cares about their own freedom seem like a camo-wearing Confederate flag-flying "militant".
2) Further the left/right paradigm and make it seem like the President actually has power.. These "militants" are saying Obama is dangerous, not mentioning WHO he is controlled by or WHAT the real purpose of taking our guns away is.. They know nothing of whats going on in this country if they actually think OBAMA HIMSELF is causing all of this.. Most likely actors.
Only a system which tolerates dissent can survive.
It`s all because of Obama being president? Why isn`t it mentioned that Bush enacted the Patriot Act that allows the government to step all over rights of americans.No doubt the mainstream media has to keep beating the public over the head with the left/right paradigm.
