What’s that old Chinese proverb/curse? “May you live in interesting times.” Mission accomplished.
You may have read about the Chrisitianist militia from Michigan that got hauled in for planning to blow up some law enforcement officials. I have no idea why they’re called Hutaree. Maybe it’s a toothless redneck pronunciation of “Huckabee.” From the official indictment:
According to the plan, the Hutaree would attack law enforcement vehicles during the funeral procession [for cops previously killed by the group] with Improvised Explosive Devices with Explosively Formed Projectiles, which constitute weapons of mass destruction.
The militia is also known for their action-packed training videos. In one, they burn a UN flag and replace it with something that kinda resembles the Gonzo fist. Weirder still, they use a Sisters of Mercy track in at least two of their YouTube clips. (For those born on the wrong side of 1980, SOM was a goth band far more popular with pale sissies than gun-obsessed gov’t-haters.)
And if that’s not enough, check out these Hutaree wedding photos featuring members of the clan slinging assault rifles while dressed to the nines in combat fatigues.
God Bless America!
