“A member of the controversial Michigan Militia said Sunday that the Hutaree is a nationwide organization with an ardent following in Adrian, 10 miles from the Ohio border just west of Detroit. “Their philosophy and ours differ in many ways, so we don’t do a whole lot with them. They are too extreme or radical for us,” said Jim Gulliksen, coordinator of the Lenaway Volunteer Michigan Militia with membership of about a dozen in the Adrian area. “I just kind of got a bad feeling about the group and we did not want to associate with them. They are a little too paranoid for me.”
In respect to the nation-wide organization and unity of the Militia in all fifty States, there is alot I don’t understand. If the Michigan Militia speaks and fully represents the voice of the entire Militia, I don’t understand under what circumstances the Militia would act in unity. If the Hutaree unit themselves are a nation-wide organization, how could they ever anticipate the capacity to defend themselves from a sudden Federal and UN attack, when they were so easily descended upon?
““Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment …,” one of the group’s purported leaders wrote on its Web site. “We, the Hutaree, are prepared to defend all those who belong to Christ and save those who aren’t. We will still spread the word, and fight to keep it, up to the time of the great coming.””
Is the above quote what warrants them to be labelled “too extreme or radical”, as stated by Jim Gulliksen?—“too paranoid”?
“Mike Lackomar of Michiganmilitia.com said he heard from other militia members that the FBI targeted the Hutaree after its members made threats of violence against Islamic organizations. Lackomar said the members of the Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia and Michiganmilitia.com weren’t arrested.”
Now, just hold onto your cotton-pickin’ horses a minute.—LOL! Did they ever really make genuine threats???—Or is this just another lie reported, which is always acceptible hate-speech by the sensationalist mainstream news-media? If they really have issued threats, then I see the legitimacy of calling them extremists.
When more and more Christians in the U.S. and in other countries are being attacked, tortured, raped and murdered by Muslims, does the Militia expect the Christians to just kow-tow? After approximately thirty-five years of Christians in Sudan being attacked, children kidnapped and parents murdered by Muslims, the U.S. government ignored it. When Darfur got hot, with Muslims taking down other Muslims in rapes and killings of women and children, all of a sudden the U.S. government sees a market for future profit. The U.S. and the U.N. suddenly become concerned about Human Rights violations, and crimes against Muslims.
Information from http://www.apologeticsindex.org/621-southren-poverty-law-center says that 512 militia units exist in the U.S., and that Texas and Michigan have the biggest numbers. Whatever is fact, and what is fiction I’m not sure right now; that is why I’m blogging this to learn more. One thing I noticed on the Michigan Militia website http://www.michiganmilitia.com/ says:
“Both The Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia and the staff of Michiganmilitia.com condemn attacks or threats of any sort directed against our elected representatives. We also condemn those who would use these attacks to further their agenda. If you don’t like your representatives, then recall them or elect someone else, or run for office yourself. We also urge all representatives to obtain and read a copy of The Constitution.
A well-armed citizenry is the best form of Homeland Security and can better deter crime, invasion, terrorism, and tyranny. The intention of this website is to inform, promote and facilitate the development and training of the militia. Everyone is welcome, regardless of race, creed, color, religion or political affiliation, provided you do not wish to bring harm to our country or people. If you are a United States citizen (or have declared your intent to become such), who is capable of bearing arms, or supports the right to do so, then YOU ARE the militia…
Interested in joining your local militia?”
In the above two paragraphs quoted, it seems as if the official Militia are naive to efforts ongoing since the 1970’s, where more and more real Patriots have followed every protocol politically and legally to regain the U.S. which the Founding Fathers of Confederation established. Do the Michigan Militia also disown Restore the Republic.net?—Ron Paul?—Anthony Griffin? If that is the case, it seems to me that the Michigan Militia is no more than an extended arm of the Federal government Military-Industrial Complex, and not defending and protecting U.S. citizens.
This final video speaks louder than enough, and I think that the Michigan Militia and the government owe an explanation to U.S. citizens why they would encourage post 9/11 Muslim immigrants to join the Militia? They already have a home-born Muslim terrorist who was well treated to positions in the U.S. Military, and he did what he could to take down U.S. soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas.
