Militia terror mobilizes against police in Michigan and for armed rally across river from Washington

You thought that the right wing tea-partiers also known as tea-baggers were bad?

We've had frequent acts of right wing vandalism against Democratic office-holder and party offices since the longest weekend (March 21, 2010) House passage of the health care bill, H.R. 3962.

Now we've got a "Christian" militia group, Hutatree, mobilizing for attacks on local law enforcement in Michigan.
Justin Elliott, "Nine Christian Militia Members Charged With Seditious Conspiracy, Attempted Use Of WMD," as reported by
And see this CNN report, today, March 29, 2010: "'Christian warrior' militia accused in plot to kill police."

And, as DemocraticUnderground, TPM and OliverWillis tell us, the militia groups are mobilizing for an armed rally at Gravelly Point Park in Arlington, Virginia, across the river from Washington, D.C., on April 19, 2010. [See Mark Potok, of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Special Intelligence Report, Spring 2010Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism.] You doubt this? Just google their code phrase, "open carry."
That is pretty scary. April 19 is a business day. The 111th Congress will be back in schedule, with the April Recess having finished a week before then.

The mainstream media have been slow to pay attention to this April 19 armed rally at Gravelly Point Park.
Greater attention, came first from the SPLC, Mother Jones and bloggers, for example: "Demagogues and Dictators," on March 25 called attention to this nasty mobilization, in "Upstaging Osama -- The Next Terrorist will be Domestic."

There are links between three extremist groups, the Oath Keepers, Committees of Safety, and the Three Percenter Movement, with the tea-party groups. Read Justine Sharrock's report in the March/April 2010 "Mother Jones": "Oath Keepers and the Age of Treason".
The left-leaning blog, The Raw Story, has compiled a series of incriminating videos, both by the armed factions of the right wing and by CNN.
