A graph developed by the Southern poverty Law Center documenting the rise of the resurgence of the militia movement. From 149 groups in 2008, the number of Patriot organizations skyrocketed to 512 in 2009, shot up again in 2010 to 824, and then, last year, jumped to 1,274. That works out to a staggering 755% growth in the three years ending last Dec. 31. Last year’s total was more than 400 groups higher than the prior all-time high, in 1996 - a year after the Oklahoma City bombing.
