Finally, the FBI is going after the American Christian militias in our country. Let’s hope they’ve got Glenn Beck’s Mormon Militia in their sights too! Under George Bush, the FBI spent a considerable amount of time infiltrating the peace groups across the country, so it’s so nice to read that the FBI is finally cracking down on the REAL domestic terrorists!
From the Chicago Sun Times:
ADRIAN, Mich. — A Christian militia group was a target of at least one of a series of weekend raids the FBI conducted in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, a Michigan militia leader says.
It wasn’t clear what prompted the raids, but Michael Lackomar, a spokesman for the Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia, said one of his team leaders got a frantic phone call Saturday evening from members of Hutaree, a Christian militia group. They said their property in southeast Michigan was being raided by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Lackomar said.
The FBI said Sunday that it had conducted raids in the three states, resulting in at least three arrests. Federal warrants were sealed, but a federal law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity said some of those arrested face gun charges and officials are pursuing other suspects. Some of the suspects were expected in court Monday.
I love the part of the article where it says that one of the team leaders got a frantic call from a member of another Christian militia group. How come they’re freaking out and acting scared? I thought they were militiamen and weren’t afraid of anything? Huh.
