Christian Terrorists- An Update

The indictment of the Christian terrorists arrested over the weekend (see post below) has been unsealed.

Via Talking Points Memo, here are a couple of excerpts:

"NINE MEMBERS OF A MILITIA GROUP CHARGED WITH SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY AND RELATED CHARGES Six Michigan residents, along with two residents of Ohio and a resident of Indiana, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Detroit on charges of seditious conspiracy, attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, teaching the use of explosive materials, and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence, United States Attorney Barbara L. McQuade and FBI Special Agent in Charge Andrew Arena announced today.

According to the indictment, Hutaree members view local, state, and federal law enforcement as the "brotherhood", their enemy, and have been preparing to engage them in armed conflict. The indictment further alleges that the Hutaree planned to kill an unidentified member of local law enforcement and then attack the law enforcement officers who gather in Michigan for the funeral. According to the plan, the Hutaree would attack law
enforcement vehicles during the funeral procession with Improvised Explosive Devices..."

Well, here we go. This is just one group of violent lunatics. There are hundreds more out there. How many of them will manage to carry out their insane plots before the feds find them?

And a word of thanks, to Sarah Palin and all the other Republican patriots out there who have done everything they can to encourage this sort of person to feel entitled to their violent rages.

Gene, I am not quite sure what you mean, but if you are questioning my use of the term "christian" to refer to these people, check out their website:

http://hutaree.com/

where you will see them describe themselves as: ""Preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive"

I get you if you are saying that they seem to be particularly unconcerned with anything that could be described as the teachings of Jesus, but I am afraid they are pretty much what passes for Christians on the American right today.

Greagle,

Well, they aren't christians. I'm sure they thump their bible and their wives and speak in tongues and claim to venerate jesus but their actions belie who they truly are; racist conservatives terrorists.

That we in America have allowed a virulent bigoted group of radicals to hijack religion speaks to the power of terrorism, I'm just glad a superpower won't swoop in and:
