The FBI raided several Christian militia groups over the weekend. As many as 7 have been arrested. The investigation centers on a group calling itself “Hutaree“. Some hilarity brewing on their message boards < Warning! Click this link at your own discretion. Extremely NSFW and you’ll likely be offended. Apparently nobody is around to moderate! (You’ve been warned)
I looked into the group back when Homeland Security put out a report (pdf link) on the rise in militia groups to see what might be happening in Ohio. They struck me as hobbyist military wannabe types at the time. Go out in the woods. Dress up in camo. Talk about “training” and act military. Apparently they were up to no good as well.
The FBI is being tight lipped until the subjects appear in court on Monday so we should know more in the coming week. The Sandusky Register reports tonight that raids did occur in Sandusky (Bayshore Estates trailer park) and in Huron.
There is probably going to be more of this. The SPLC just released a report that indicates right-wing extremist “patriot” groups have risen 224% since Barack Obama took office. If you haven’t figured it out yet, all this uproar over health care isn’t really about health care – and we’ve pointed this out many times before.
