So what were these fine upstanding Tea Bagging Tea Party members planning on doing?
The indictment alleges the Hutaree group planned to kill an unidentified law enforcement officer in Michigan and then attack officers who would gather for the funeral.The Republican Party can't say they weren't warned. The Republican Party and its leaders have been encouraging their followers to be "armed and dangerous," "fill their hands," and to use the "bullet box" instead of the "ballot box."
According to the plan, the indictment said, the Hutaree wanted to use improvised explosive devices to attack law enforcement vehicles during the funeral procession. The indictment said those explosive devices, commonly called IEDs, constitute weapons of mass destruction.
Subsequently, the indictment said, Hutaree leader David Brian Stone obtained information about IEDs over the Internet and e-mailed diagrams to a person he believed could manufacture them.
He then had his one of his sons, Joshua Matthew Stone, and others gather materials necessary to manufacture IEDs, the indictment alleges.
According to the indictment, David Brian Stone and David Brian Stone Jr. taught other Hutaree members in June how to make and use explosive devices.
Tea Party Republicans have heeded their leaders' calls to violently oppose the government of the United States by forming militias and engaging in seditious conspiracies. The Republican Party will have to defend its involvement with groups such as this, that plot the murder of innocent Americans, police officers, and law enforcement personnel.
Update: CNN has apparently altered their original video to omit a screenshot of an invitation to a Hutaree Tea Party.
