The report is 50+ pages long and there are a few with some shocking information. The last paragraph of page 3 of the PDF file is below:
Although hate crimes are not typically committed by organized hate groups, hate groups often commit some of the most brutal hate crimes. Throughout history, people have formed hate groups, united in their hatred for those of different races, religions, sexual orientations, and ethnicities/national origins. Organized hate groups are generally defined by federal authorities as groups whose primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, gender, handicap, sexual orientation, or ethnicity group which differs from that of the members of the organization. These groups range from loosely organized and informal organizations to highly structured international organizations. The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Intelligence Project tracks active hate and patriot groups across the nation and maintains a state-by-state directory of where such groups have been established. While not exhaustive, the list identifies known groups based on information from hate or patriot groups’ publications, citizens’ reports, law enforcement agencies, field sources, news reports, and the Internet (See Tables 6.3 and 6.4).In the above excerpt they're openly linking hate groups to patriot groups. And confirm that all groups are under close watch.
The final paragraph in page 5 is equally as shocking:
The Internet provides an accessible and inviting interface that allows extremists new ways to communicate, no longer with words alone but through pictures, graphics, sounds, animation, and video (Tiven, 2003, p.13). Websites, chat rooms, discussion boards, email messages, and instant messages are all part of a virtual playground for extremists to disperse their messages of hate to the masses. The ability to use these techniques to entice Internet users has proven to be a very successful recruitment tool for hate groups. Groups may twist their message to appear as though they are legitimate activists who have been unfairly characterized as extremists. Some post provocative messages on online discussion forums devoted to mainstream, legitimate topics with the hope of attracting new supporters (Tiven, 2003, p.17). Groups operating in Kentucky are no exception. Examples include the Kentucky based websites for hate groups such as the Imperial Klans of America, Knights of the KKK, http://www.kkkk.net/kentucky1/index.htm, andAgain, openly relating the Take Back Kentucky group with the KKK chapters. I am a member of Take Back Kentucky and so is Dr. Rand Paul! This is just an outrage and shows proves that they view us as the enemy and want to demonize our movement by relating us to the Klu Klux Klan. And it gets even better, on page 25 it shows a chart 6.4 (referenced on page 3) and lists some other patriot groups as hate groups.
Warriors of the White World, http://www.warriorsofthewhiteworld.com, and for patriot groups such as Take Back Kentucky, http://www.takebackkentucky.com/index.html, and the Kentucky State Militia, www.kysm.org. Such groups are actively using the Internet to share their message, recruit new members, and improve the coordination and communication among current members.
-Take Back Kentucky Clarkson, KYThis really is just unbelievable. How can the Constitution Party be a hate group? That is a legitimate political party with candidates that run for the presidency! And then they go on to say Patriot groups oppose the "New World Order" like that's a bad thing. I'm not trying to rant here but the proof is in the pudding. Let me know your thoughts on this.

*Patriot groups define themselves as opposed to the “New World Order” or advocate or adhere to extreme anti-government or conspiratorial doctrines. Listing here does not imply that the groups themselves advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist. This list was compiled from field reports, Patriot publications, the Internet, law enforcement officials and news reports. Source: Southern Poverty Law Center.
