Tea Partiers: Why don't those who oppose Obama just come out and state the real reason for their venom:
"We don't take orders from a Negro!" White people can't stand that a black man is giving them directives. That's all this is about. Their hatred of black people.
Why do the media pretend it's about something else?
At least the FBI isn't pretending it's something else:
The FBI was conducting raids Saturday night at multiple locations in southeast Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
At least seven people, including some from Michigan, have been arrested in raids by a FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana as part of an investigation into a Christian militia group, according to a this report from DetNews.com.
The suspects are expected to make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Detroit on Monday.
On Sunday, the FBI confirmed that federal law enforcement agents were conducting activities in Washtenaw and Lenawee counties over the weekend in connection to Hutaree, a Christian militia group. FBI Special Agent Sandra Berchtold told The Detroit News the federal warrants in the case are under court seal and declined further comment.
Sources have said the FBI was in the second day of raids around the southeastern Michigan city of Adrian that are connected to a militia group, known as the Hutaree, an group whose members describe themselves as Christian soldiers who are preparing for the arrival and battle with the anti-Christ.
Agents have also obtained search warrants and multiple arrests have been made.
Police, federal agents in raids in Sandusky and Huron: A battalion of local officers and federal agents flooded the Bayshore Estates neighborhood Saturday afternoon.
A second raid was conducted in Huron. An FBI agent at the scene of the Bayshore Estates raid said a second, related raid was taking place at “another location.” Huron police confirmed late Saturday a raid had taken place in that city, but would say nothing more.
Wow. Who woulda thought the home of Cedar Point would be a terror hub.
Well, anyone who's lived there.
I remember best the little train ride you took at Cedar Point, through Frontier Town, which was basically a bunch of prop western exteriors with wire-controlled skeletons in western gear (amazingly I found a pic online). It was odd, not being scared in the woods in the middle of an afternoon by gun-shooting skulls.
My favorite was the upside down house, which had traditional amusements; funny mirrors, tilted walkways, etc. Great fun.
So, I wonder how many of these homegrown terror suspects ever enjoyed a nice day at the park?
That might be the problem. Too much rightwing homeschooling, not enough fun.
Oh, and I found this related 2-year-old gem quite by accident:
SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) -- A highway patrolman who was photographed in a handmade Ku Klux Klan costume while on duty the day before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday has been suspended without pay, authorities said.
Ohio. Ohio. Thank god I left Ohio.
