Indicted Michigan Militia nutbags featured guns prominently in their wedding.
Perfectly normal.

Among the eight apocalyptic Christian militia members indicted for sedition are the married couple who led Michigan's Hutaree militia, David "Captain Hutaree" Stone and wife Tinathe blushing bride of Hutaree, who uploaded wedding photos to Facebook in December.

Talking Points Memo found Tina's Facebook profile under her maiden name, Tina Kelley. In these photos, the red-haired Tinathe only female Hutaree the U.S. Attorney General has so far indictedposes in a wedding veil alongside family members, assault rifles, the flag o Hutaree, and her camouflage-wearing groom, David "Captain Hutaree" Stone, Sr.

1. Where to start? The tasteful strip lighting. That array of unique apparel styles.
Not sure I've ever seen such bad taste captured in so many ways in a single shot (no pun intended!)

15. My dad was a responsible gun owner. The first thing he ever taught me
about guns WHEN I WAS LITTLE was that you never, ever, point a gun at anyone or anything unless you were intending to kill it.

That child has NOT been taught how to be responsible and safe around guns. Can we say CHILD ENDANGERMENT???

23. My dad was the same way
"Guns are not toys. Treat every gun like a loaded gun."

My parents were so strict about this, we were not allowed to play with cap guns & could only use squirt guns if they were supervising.

If Dad were still alive, I'm sure he'd have a few choice words with these idiots.

22. I'm not defending these people. Already you're framing it into something else.
Edited on Tue Mar-30-10 10:58 PM by proteus_lives
I'm drawing attention to you calling them normal. That's wrong and you know it.

I think calling attention to your ignorance and narrow-mindedness is the right thing to do.

33. The yellow flag might be the old "Don't Tread on Me"
But not sure. I don't recognize the other two. I'd google "Flags of the Michigan Militias", but don't want to ruin my good mood.

30. This all sounds familiar...
The Posse Comitatus is an intermittently active, loosely organized group of "Christian Identity" activists dedicated to survivalism, vigilantism, and anti-government agitation. Following the pseudo-religious tenets of the "Identity" movement, Posse members typically proclaim Jews to be the "synagogue of Satan," blacks and other people of color to be subhuman "mud races," and Northern European whites to be the "Chosen People" of Biblical prophecy. The name of the group translates from Latin to mean "power of the county," and the Posse believes that all governmental power is rooted at the county, not Federal, level.

Because Posse members believe that the Federal government is controlled by "enemies" - often meaning Jews - they resist paying taxes, as well as other duties of law abiding citizenship. Some members of the group have even refused to apply for driver's licenses, because this would imply submission to an "illegitimate, subversive" authority. Elements of the Posse's ideology, most notably its fierce hostility to Federal authority are echoed among today's militias.

The Posse has attracted Klan members and other anti-Semites. Among the avid promoters of the Posse during its period of development in the 1970s were Arch Roberts' Committee to Restore the Constitution, based in Fort Collins, Colorado; Western Front of Los Angeles, run by collaborators of the late anti-Jewish agitator Gerald L.K. Smith; and ex-neo-Nazi and Klansman David Duke of Louisiana, more recently head of the NAAWP (National Association for the Advancement of White People).

In 1983, when active Posse member Gordon Kahl murdered two Federal marshals in North Dakota and became a fugitive, the group attracted nationwide attention. The marshals had come to arrest Kahl for a parole violation in connection with an earlier conviction for non-payment of taxes. Kahl later died in a shootout with Arkansas law enforcement officials in which a local sheriff was also killed; Kahl became a martyr to the Posse, the Aryan Nations and other extremists.

31. You've got to wonder how many more groups like this exist.
Another observation: I bet the family tree doesn't have a whole lot of branches.

34. Thousands. All buying guns and ammo by the truckload since Obama was elected.
Expect many more gun clubs... I mean militias to be 'persecuted' in the next few years.
