Truly Delusional

Tina Stone is one of the currently incarcerated members of the Hutaree militia in Michigan. Surely they could have come up with a more evocative name for their mission to create mayhem to avenge the injustices brought upon rural white bigots by our Socialist/Al Qaeda loving Muslim President.

On Tina Stone's Facebook page we can get a clue about what pushed her over the edge. Apparently it was an e-mail that has been circulating about H.B. 1388 (House Bill). According to the e-mail the bill will give $20 million to help relocate, house and feed Hamas militants right here in the great U.S. of A.

First a word of advice to the next Militia group intent on armed insurrection: try to stay off Facebook.

To quote Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as stupid does" but how does one account for a truly epic level of delusion. When people like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh in all seriousness claim Obama is setting up detention camps to facilitate a takeover by a one world government, that Obama is Hitler, Stalin, bin Laden, Muslim etc it becomes a lot more understandable.

The Southern Poverty Law Center that tracks hate groups in the U.S. has reported a huge rise in militia activity since Obama's election. It will only be a matter of time before a slightly more savvy group won't vent on Facebook but will commit a violent act. Another Oklahoma City bombing in the near future is looking more and more likely.
