"Pennsylvania's anti-government groups"
"The SPLC also found Pennsylvania to have the highest concentration of anti-government groups in the country. In 2014, there were 18 anti-government groups. In 2015, there were 60...
"Generally, such groups define themselves as opposed to the 'New World Order,' engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines," according to the SPLC.
The organizations -- including two militias -- were located around Pennsylvania. The SPLC noted that their listing in the report does not imply that the anti-government organizations advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist.
The SPLC reports that anti-government; 'Patriot' groups grew from 874 in 2014 to 998. The organizations describes the groups as "armed militias and others animated by conspiracy theories."
