Double standard much?
Nine suspected members of a militia group were charged Monday with seditious conspiracy and related charges, federal prosecutors said.Let me get straight to the point. I think it's amusing that whenever a bunch of crazy white folks who are pissed off at the American government decide to engage in stupid shit, like create their own languages and defend themselves against a government that has ONLY ever looked out for their interests first, the media and the government itself never calls them terrorists. They are part of a "militia."
A federal grand jury in Detroit, Michigan, indicted six Michigan residents, two Ohioans and an Indianan on the conspiracy charges, plus attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, teaching the use of explosive materials and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade and Andrew Arena, FBI special agent in charge, announced.
The five-count indictment unsealed Monday charges that since August 2008, the defendants, acting as a Lenawee County, Michigan, militia group called the Hutaree, conspired to oppose by force the authority of the U.S. government.
The suspects were identified as David Brian Stone, 45; his wife, Tina Stone, 44; his son, Joshua Matthew Stone, 21, of Clayton, Michigan; and another son, David Brian Stone Jr., 19, of Adrian, Michigan; Joshua Clough, 28, of Blissfield, Michigan; Michael Meeks, 40, of Manchester, Michigan; Thomas Piatek, 46, of Whiting, Indiana; Kristopher Sickles, 27, of Sandusky, Ohio; and Jacob Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio.
See if you were to substitute their names with Arabic or Persian ones, and change their "god" to Allah, it would be straight up terrorism. They would be insurgents, terrorists looking to harm the American people.
These people are a bunch of crazies, but they are no different than some weirdo hiding out in the hills of Pakistan or Afghanistan conspiring to take down the Americans and their government for being infidels ie Anti-Allah/Anti-Islam.
I guess it would make us look hypocritical if we took down terrorists in other countries while our own homegrown madasses ran unchecked.
Terrorists only come in shades other than white and religions other than Christian.
