Thirteen Militiamen Nabbed In Michigan Kidnap Plot Against Gov. Whitmer

Thu Oct 08, 2020 5:42 pm

As I have said before, it’s comforting that despite all the divisions, our reliable hands at the FBI keep doing their thing to keep Americans safe.

This time, they have caught six militia wackos trying to organize the kidnapping and possible ‘taking’ of Michigan Governor Whitmer. An additional seven associated people were brought in under MI’s anti-terrorism efforts. It can’t be a very pleasant day for her family and friends.

A militia group planned to violently depose Michigan's government and abduct Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), the FBI said in a federal affidavit filed Thursday.

"Several members talked about murdering 'tyrants' or 'taking' a sitting governor," an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit, obtained by the Detroit News. "The group decided they needed to increase their numbers and encouraged each other to talk to their neighbors and spread their message."

Some interesting reaction from Jemele Hill @jemelehill on Twitter:

I don’t know who needs to hear this but just imagine the reaction if it would have been discovered that anyone connected to Black Lives Matter was plotting to kidnap a United States Governor.

Ref: https://twitter.com/jemelehill/status/1 ... 7402873856

Stop calling them a militia group. It legitimizes them. These are domestic terrorists.

And these are Trump's 'good people'. Another reason why he must lose re-election, even removed from office now.

This governor was trying to save lives, even those of these White Extremist Terrorists. The plot may have predated the first deaths of Covid-19, as early as January 2020, but became big after the Governor ordered tight restrictions, some very offensive to many WS types, to prevent the spread of it. Meanwhile her life and that of her family has been put through hell of terrorism for months, likely facing PTSD and who knows some other potential attacks. And you wonder why many good people won't become politicians.

I like Dave Chapelle's suggestion the best: the quickest way to get the gun laws to change is for every African American to go get a permit for a legal gun.

People! Everyone, HELLO.. !

You are missing the most important thing with this:

The FBI is DEEP STATE and FILLED with lifelong agents and people that want to only enhance the deep-state they love and support (and that loves and supports them). This is all to make militia's and "conservative" and right-wing causes and Trump etc. look bad so the election is pushed to a more deep state candidate.

Please people, can't you see this? Isn't it obvious? Are you blind to the vast conspiracy we are in the middle of?

Adults take account for their actions and don't blame it on someone else for 'riling' them up. If someone is calling for highly restrictive gun laws, that is their right to do so, as objectionable as someone else may find that view. It does not give license to crazies to get riled up and plot violent actions against a sitting governor, or otherwise excuse or legitimize the actions.

The lack of sane and reasonable restrictions (i.e., banning assault-style rifles, limiting the size of ammunition magazines) is what makes these groups so dangerous.

Meanwhile, instead of talking about the 13 terrorists arrested in Michigan, we're talking about how gun nuts might get their feelings hurt. Maybe those snowflakes should suck it up?

Systematic oppression, acts of violence and some brutality in minority neighborhoods leads to riots-too bad, they’d be more credible if they kept quiet and incited change silently blah blah blah

Politician says mean words about them-time to kill the governor, you drove them to this, it’s not their fault etc etc

The double standard is sickening. This group is a terrorist group. That’s it, end of conversation. They organized and planned to execute a plot to incite terror ergo they are terrorists.

Militiamen are triggered / riled up, apparently by having to hear political views / rhetoric that they don't like or agree with (views that the people espousing them have a right to do, no less), and start making violent plans to harm a politician ... and the solution is for those espousing the view to stop talking. What an affront to all those that have died to protect the rights of Americans to air their political views free from harm.

The solution is that the militiamen should learn how to control their emotions and not be so triggered and to not do violent things.

Spot on.

You dislike Gov. Whitmer and her policies? Fine - defeat her at the ballot box or in court.

When you plot to kidnap or harm a leader because you don't like them or how they lead, you're a terrorist and should be treated as such.

This. The irony is, Gov. Whitmer was already knocked down a peg in state court. These wackos think ‘owning libs’ means meting out ‘justice’ with weaponry.

This is all a result of the continued rhetoric and issues within Michigan that have gone on for decades.

Anyone remember Terry Nichols and Tim McVeigh?

The militias have been and continue to be a problem in Michigan. Dog Whistlers in the GOP continue to exacerbate the issue.

These loonies are idiots. They were trying to start a civil war apparently. Well, kidnapping a governer is not how you do that. That is how you get the FBI and an overwhelming force of state troopers on high alert and arrest you. And if for some reason they didn't arrest them on time and they started attacking the capital, that force of troopers would have decimated them since they were on high alert. In fact, a small part of me wishes to have seen the show

How ironic that this militant group think that the constitution allows private militaria groups. it doesn't. They apparently don't have the reading comprehensive skills to understand the constitution.

Yet they wanted to kidnapped and illegally put on trial then assassinate a Governor which is unconstitutional. Our constitution doesn't allow this. Yet in their warped minds, they think she's the one not following our constitution. Next we are going to hear about another militaria group going after Gold Star families, because Trump thinks he got the Corona Virus from fallen soldiers family. With absolutely no proof. Unbelievable, but hey Trump wants the proud boys to stand by (roll eyes)

You believe in appeasement of terrorists. These people cannot handle being responsible adults. Apart from the obvious lifestyle choice similarities, is there another reason you believe such criminals and garbage people should be armed? That is not an adult position to occupy.

I'm not sure terrorism is the right word, especially when this word is already used to describe all kind of people that don't really fit the profile.

Aren't these people traitors ?

I'm sure they'll like being called that.

People! Everyone, HELLO.. !

You are missing the most important thing with this:

The FBI is DEEP STATE and FILLED with lifelong agents and people that want to only enhance the deep-state they love and support (and that loves and supports them). This is all to make militia's and "conservative" and right-wing causes and Trump etc. look bad so the election is pushed to a more deep state candidate.

Please people, can't you see this? Isn't it obvious? Are you blind to the vast conspiracy we are in the middle of?

Well let's remember, a bunch of dumb homicidal GOP members want to kill everyone by opening up for Money.

Yes, and she got her hand slapped. That's why we have 3 branches of government. That's also why we have elections. Kidnapping/killing elected officials has no place in a modern, democratic society. And Yes, I'm a Michigan resident.
PS--Just looking at the mugshots, you can see that none of them were deep thinkers. Just a bunch of losers who wanted to be (in)famous.

Stop calling them a militia group. It legitimizes them. These are domestic terrorists.

It is possible to believe that redneck militiamen and anarchist rioters are both bad.

Street protests fine, walking up and shooting two cops in cold blood bad.

Are you somehow conflating BLM with a random cop killer nutjob in Compton??


The man who shot 10 police officers and killed 5 of them in Dallas a few years ago specifically cited Black Lives Matter as his motivation for doing so.

The double standard is sickening. This group is a terrorist group. That’s it, end of conversation. They organized and planned to execute a plot to incite terror ergo they are terrorists.


Absolutely agreed. Call them what they are-terrorists. Plus a few other adjectives that are a bit impolite to post here.

Credit where due, friend. I don’t always agree with some of your posts, but it’s nice to see eye to eye on this one rather than the mental gymnastics some people will go through to try and justify. I might not like how some things are, but in the end if you care about the country, we've already got some common ground. You don't unite a country by tearing it down.

Unfortunately one of the best ways back to compromise is to establish the extremes.

Some of the kinder adjectives I might suggest are cowards, traitors, and the like

That's the good thing about being a Moderate, politically. You can plainly see that there are nuts on both ends of the spectrum.

Interesting using your logic President Trump is the most unconstitutional president we have ever had. He has prevailed only 47 percent of the time, a worse record than that of his predecessors going back at least as far as Franklin D. Roosevelt.

so let that sink in. TRUMP HAS BEEN RULED UNCONSTITUTIONA 47 PERCENT OF THE TIME.

Getting back on point, are you saying that you support what these 11 person did?

Right, but the rhetorical leap you and Nikki are making is "street protester" equals "anarchist rioter" or "cop killer"

Same old same old, let's bury the lede story about what these 13 people did by a series of false and distracting equivalences.

Right, and the Crusaders specifically cited Jesus Christ as their motivation for killing Muslims.

Note the direction of those relationships: Jesus never said anything about killing others.

I've never made such equivalences. Moreover, I'm against using broad generalizations to demonize people that disagree with me politically.

But BLM has directly been responsible for a lot of the anti-cop rhetoric that has been prevalent in this country over the last decade. If you keep telling people that "cops are evil, all cops are bad, etc etc etc" then you shouldn't be surprised when some of those people act violently. That goes for any extremist group.
