Fringe Groups

March 29, 2010

Odd isn’t it? Four days ago I mentioned the Michigan Militia in this blog and last night they are raided by the FBI. My mention was of how they are a little fringe to say the least but I had no idea how far out there they were. I wonder if this “Hutaree” group are closely affiliated with the main group or what?

The only reason I mention this at all is because I go to the Tea Parties. I know of the Michigan Militia because I used to live there, not because I belonged. I keep hearing how these type of people are the Tea Party movement and I’m here to tell you it just ain’t so.

The few representatives of the Michigan Militia that I came in personal contact with were to say the least, quite alarming. I was at a public meeting and there was a truck outside with a handmade license plate that said Militia on it. I watched to see who got in the truck after the meeting. Again, they were alarming. They set off a warning in me, I was just surprised that the State Police that were taking down license numbers in the parking lot did nothing.

I keep hearing on the MSM that the Tea Partiers are a political group. This is also untrue. I have met Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and all other sorts of people at these parties. Once I even met some people from Japanese TV. Some people just don’t get it. It’s not an organization it’s a movement. People from all walks of life and different organizations moving in the same direction. Towards the Constitution.
