And now a random, ridiculous and probably rhetorical question:
A group of men spend two years doing a little military-style training. Learning to shoot and how to make and detonate bombs. They plot the murder of a police officer apparently for the sole purpose of setting off a bomb at the funeral.
The charges include plotting to wage war against the US, possessing a firearm during a crime of violence, teaching the use of explosives, and attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction—that would be the homemade bombs.
The indictment reads, in part:
"It is believed by the Hutaree that this engagement would then serve as a catalyst for a more widespread uprising against the government."
Guess what "Hutaree" is supposed to mean? Christian Warrior.
And that's why it isn't still front page news. Which it would be if this group of men were Muslim. They would also be labeled as "Terrorists." Not "Militia."
Why is that?
