Here's some video of terrorists in training, set to the ominous plonky throb of 80s goth band the Sisters of Mercy. Teh awesome! Apparently, nine of these Chritians terrorists were arrested and have now been charged with a laundry list of crimes including plans to attack police, seditious conspiracy and the attempted use of weapons of mass destruction.
In court filings unsealed Monday, the Justice Department accused the nine people of planning to kill an unidentified law enforcement officer, then plant improvised explosive devices of a type used by insurgents in Iraq to attack the funeral procession.
Eight of the defendants were arrested over the weekend in raids in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. A ninth remained at large, the Justice Department said. The indictments against them were returned last Tuesday. The defendants were identified as members of Hutaree, described by federal prosecutors as an anti-government extremist organization based in Lenawee County, Michigan, and which advocates violence against local, state and federal law enforcement.
Having a snoop around the net it doesn't look like the mainstream media is reporting these psychos for the vile creatures that they are, the word terrorism is strangely absent from reporting. There are lots of cute euphemisms to avoid saying the word, they're militants, militia members, christian militia, alleged militia members... hell Sky news just went with the headline "Christians Charged with Police Murder Plot" It wasn't until the bottom of the first page of Google News results that MyFox Detroit went so far as to declare "Radical Christian Extremists Arrested for Planning WMD Attack". Yet nowhere in their report does the word terror appear.
Little surprise of course that the insane people are rallying to the side of these murderous crazies. Surgically sculpted garbage jet Pam from Atlas Shrugged comes out of the gates howling DESPITE RECORD LEVELS OF ISLAMIC TERROR IN U.S., FBI RAIDS CHRISTIAN GROUPS and the comments thread there is a real treat. In that little intellectual slum it all comes down to a Muslim conspiracy and Obama as anti-christ. Wowzers.
It will be interesting to watch how this all plays out, who wants to lay money on these poor martyrs never seeing the inside of a particular Cuban destination.

You had to know that was coming.
