Original message The Militia busts - It Smells of Charles Manson plot
to plant bombs around the area on Easter, blame the Muslims in the area, to begin an all out war against American muslims.

Just like Manson wanted to start a race war.

When reading another post about the reaction of those in the basement at FR..I came across this:

A troubling incident at my church this week (possible terror-related)

I was just informed of a troubling incident that took place at my church yesterday. A young middle-eastern man came in and asked about our church including questions like "Are your services normally full?" When given a diagram of the building (commonly done to help visitors find their way around) he apparently "lit up" a little. He then left in a blue four door sedan that was waiting for him outside.

No one wants to jump to conclusions but we also want to be vigilant and aware. I'm sharing this here since I know alot of FReepers are church-goers. Maybe something similarly odd has happened at another church in recent days. Just wanting to share information.

Its good to be a little extra aware. Especially since this happened a few weeks before Easter. Last Easter, there were plans to attack London during the Easter holiday.

My church is a large evangelical church in the midwest.

Now I know all this is speculation, but it really smells like this may have been the reason for the Palm Sunday Raid. What do you think?

LOL!! I love DU, I really do. :D

Palm Sunday raid?

Let me guess, once it was decided that it was a Christian milita, this thead went down the memory hole, and the bust was a wonderful example of our government in action.

I guess there are no left wing terror organizations in this country. *cough* ALF/ELF *cough*

And of course, as predicted, to these idiots believe that these kooks are representative of the entire movement.

The FBI, MSP and Homeland Security raided the properties of a militia-like group in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana (in the area near where those three states border each other) over the weekend. I was in court all morning, so I haven't read what their alleged plot was. The local news didn't really have very much info, other than there were weapons' charges and that the Michigan Militia (Norm Olsen's group) denies having any ties to the group that was raided. I'm kind of surprised there wasn't any coverage on the national news.

The actual Michigan Militia are not all that dangerous of a group. They're a bunch of guys who like to shoot guns at targets. They're only dangerous to deer and UN troops, should the latter invade Michigan.
