Are those Hutaree guys terrorists?

Earlier in the week, a commenter on an unrelated post asked me that very question. “i thought you might want to condemn that kind of activity,” added the thoughtful commenter. “and also note that you never hear about them when a republican is president.”

I wasn’t sure at the time, but now there’s more information. From yesterday’s Toledo Blade, via Ace of Spades:

Most of the indicted militia members accused of being anti-government extremists have active voting records, a check with area voter registration offices showed yesterday.

One is a registered Democrat, and the party affiliations of the rest could not be determined.

Jacob J. Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio, voted as a Democrat in the 2004 and 2008 primary elections.

Yep. They sound like terrorists to me!

P.S. It’s safe to say that this other Hutaree guy is not a fan of George W. Bush. Or salads.
