“Patriot” extremism, according to the document, holds that the U.S. government “has become corrupt, has overstepped its constitutional boundaries or is no longer capable of protecting the people against foreign threats.” Adherents reject the government’s authority to tax and govern, believe they don’t have to follow the law, and, in some cases, form militias and call for the government to be violently overthrown.
Anarchist extremism, meanwhile, opposes all forms of government, the document says, along with capitalism and corporations. It cites as examples the left-wing Antifa and Occupy movements, as well as the Workers’ Solidarity Alliance,
The third main category of extremists is organized around “Ethnic/Racial Supremacy,” which blames the U.S. government for “forcing race mixing.”
“While the vast majority of these groups hold white supremacist views,” the document states, “a wide array of ethnic and racial groups hold similar beliefs about the supremacy of their ethnicity or race.” Its examples include Aryan Nations and the Ku Klux Klan, Evropa and Atomwaffen Division.
