I'm not sure if this slipped by unnoticed. I did a search.
Violent extremist groups ─ like al-Qaida and its affiliates and adherents, violent supremacist groups, and violent sovereign citizens ─ are leveraging online tools and resources to propagate messages of violence and division. These groups use the Internet to disseminate propaganda, identify and groom potential recruits, and supplement their real-world recruitment efforts. Some members and supporters of these groups visit mainstream fora to see whether individuals might be recruited or encouraged to commit acts of violence, look for opportunities to draw targets into private exchanges, and exploit popular media like music videos and online video games. Although the Internet offers countless opportunities for Americans to connect, it has also provided violent extremists with access to new audiences and instruments for radicalization.

Wait, I’m confused.....are they worried about anti-government types or extremists? Can’t they make up their mind? Are they worried about both types? ;)

Let me guess. Advocating the government being accountable to the rule of law makes one a violent extremist.

In Newspeak, sovereign citizens = “tea party terrorists” = “Constitution fanatics” = bitter clingers standing in the way of socialist utopia.

It is long past the time to get off the internet and start meeting in private homes. And thanks to technology the meetings really should be in Faraday cages.

(The epitome of civility.)
The federal government apparently fears its own citizens more than any external threat, and rightly so.
And that is the way it should be.
These beauracrats need to be reminded from time to time just exactly who they work for.
They may have bought off most of the masses, but they can never buy off the patriots.

The extremist are in the White House. They have blatantly spoke of tyranny and murder. They fear mainstream views, and label them as extremism, to attack political opposition. They smear organizations like the Oath Keepers because they fear those who take their oath serious. The mainstream media, and leftist politicians are domestic enemies of the Constitution who are openly conspiring to commit mass murder.
Right wing extremist.

If they would address the problem of GOVERNMENT extremists, then they'd have less trouble with "anti-government extremists."
