Bad News for Democrats – Hutaree Militia ‘Nutjobs’ Registered Democrats

Did you hear that on MSNBC or CNN? Nope. And don’t hold your breath.

They are too busy trying to tie the anti-government Hutaree Militia to the Republican Party.

Sorry, the only ties to a political party are to the Democratic Party.

According to the Toledo Blade:

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, and in 10 other elections since 2000. Voters’ political affiliations in Ohio are determined by which party’s ballot they request during even-year primary elections.

The rest have no record indicating party.

So you Democrats gleefully assuming that all militia are right wing nuts may want to check facts before you embarrass yourself again.

    You are gleefully assuming that the rest of them are Democrats as well, because one guy voted as a Democrat? May want to check the facts you included in your own article.

    • Tom White says:

      I believe I clearly stated the party affiliations of the others could not be determined. Something you obviously saw, as you emboldened the passage.

      From that, you accuse me of claiming the rest were Democrats?


      • Brian Scranton says:

        Your headline says “democrats”, plural. That would indicate that there was more than one democrat. Kind of a misleading headline given how you accurately state the facts in the article.

    • lwr says:

      didn’t the whole world just go ahead and assume they were part of “right wing, nut job, talk radio, lunatic fringe”?
      Didn’t hear the same argument when everyone was spouting off that, an of course good ol’ Ed Shultz wanted to socialize radio because of it (his words, not mine.

      Where was the proof before any of that judgment was passed? But heck, what’s proof and truth in the new age of enlightenment anyway. Pretty sure those words, much like Freedom, liberty, and self determination will something that the newspeak dictionary just won’t define. Much like how we forget that the riots, the bombings, the attempted blockade of DC, and just about all the political and social mayhem of the 60’s/70’s were all done by.. shall I say it, non conservatives. Heck, the greatest peaceful gathering of people were both movements of all time were led by registered Republicans, maybe you heard of one of them, he happened to was be named after another famous peacefulwhite dude from Germany, who just happened to nail a few articles on a church door…
      Anyway, go Chug on that new math and down your SOMA my friend…but somewhere,we know that 2+2 will never equal 5


      • Tom White says:

        Strange the left just accepts that this was a “Christian” militia as well. Wonder why they don’t call out Maddow and Matthews, not to mention HuffyPo for having no proof these people were Christians. Or that the fact that if they were was relevant. It’s not.

        And they are only accused of crimes. I doubt there are any convictions for those arrested by these thought police.

        • Brian Scranton says:

          The group claimed to be Christian, the media didn’t make this up. No one in their right mind thinks they were following traditional Christian doctrine.

  2. Johnny says:

    Your headline describes the militia as registered DemocratS. So yes it’s very misleading.

    • Tom White says:

      So you are saying none of them are registered DemocratS? At least one of them has registered with the Democrats.

      Unless there is only one Democrat remaining.

  3. Curt says:


    Seems Tom White is too stupid to figure out that his Headline states “…Registered Democrats” (plural) even though there is only one confirmed registered Democrat.

  4. whotheheckcares says:

    you write this like it’s some amazing find, it’s one person who was registered as a Democrat that is confirmed. Nice slant on things, keep talking fair and balanced will you! the more you try to bring up points like this the more you seem like you’re trying to hide the fact that these were religious terrorists grown right here in the US

  5. Scott says:

    We can do this dance all day;

    We’re accusing you of implying that they are all liberals, ergo this isn’t a victory for the left. That liberals are evil terrorists who want to destroy America.

    We get it. Lucky you this is a blog, responsible journalism isn’t required or expected. You can pretend all you want, you can say that the above statement are my words, not mine. But you can’t lie to yourself and your very terrible at disguising your intentions.

    Simple fact of the matter is, you sir are a fool.

  6. Will White says:

    Just a few days ago the Democrats were saying these people were right wing activist.

    • Scott says:

      Very well could be, even with a registered Democrat.

      Believe it or not there are a lot of people who affiliate with the Democratic Party due to old party lines and family values.

      These are people who can trace their families back to the Civil War, when the Democratic Party led the charge for the Southern states to secede from the Union. Of course, the modern political landscape was shaped by the great depression and WW2, when the party roles switched and the Democrats took on more progressive and socialist ideals while the Republicans moved toward a more Traditional Values, conservative approach.

      Remember that during the Civil Rights movement, a lot of the people fighting against it were Democrats, hangers-on from the old party line of Jim Crow.

  7. Tom White says:

    The headline is accurate as is the post. Perhaps you would prefer “All militia members whose party affiliation could be determined are registered Democrats”.

    The post clearly states the facts and they are 100% accurate. The headline reflects the intense (and incorrect) media coverage of this group as right wing nuts.

    Strange that you would insist on “fair and balanced” from me and not have a problem with the left wing media headlines accusing the entire group of being right wing.

    And as for my blog being “fair and balanced”, perhaps you mistake me for Fox News. My “About” link above clearly states my bias.

    • Brian Scranton says:

      The headline is accurate as is the post.

      Plural does not indicate “1”. Your headline is inaccurate. Just admit you made a mistake and move on.

    • IggyDad says:

      He did not make a “mistake.” It was a cheap distortion, typical of teabaggerSSSS (plural, as in more than one, as in what you learn when you are about 2 years old, or earlier). So you are a liar, or a cretin.

  8. Mr. Tin Foil Hat says:

    One register democrat, one FBI informant. I dunno, you do the math.

  9. Venu says:

    Umm, does no one see the obvious flaw in this? The State of Ohio does “registration” based on which primary election you vote in. If I were to recall, Bush was the nominee in 2004 way before the time Ohio rolled around and Kerry and Edwards were fighting it out. Similarly, I recall McCain being the de-facto nominee seeing as though it was impossible for Huckabee to win, while Hillary and Obama still had a competitive primary. It would appear that even an ardent Republican would have requested Democratic primary ballots in 2004 and 2008 be their intention Operation: Chaos or support who they assumed was the best candidate.

    • Tom White says:

      I believe the 2004 election predates Operation: Chaos. And there was no real reason for a Republican to vote in the Democratic Primary. There were no really strong candidates that could be pushed out by voting for a weaker one. The Democrats ran a very lackluster field in 2004. Bush was very beatable then and they did worse than in 2000.

      All partisanship aside, had Kerry won in 2004, Obama would not be president now. And the financial collapse would have happened on Kerry’s watch. Perhaps even faster as the toxic assets would have no doubt increased. We would very likely have a Republican President now and also the House and Senate would not have changed hands in 2006, as the party in power always drops seats in the mid-terms. No Pelosi, Reid in charge.

      In hindsight, Bush winning in 2004 was a devastating blow to the Republican Party.

      Strange how success can cause failure.

    “News from the Right side of Virginia! If you’re not right, you’re wrong!”

    Since your headline is obviously wrong, I guess that makes you a leftist, commie socialist.

    • Tom White says:

      My, my. I suppose you are one of those filled with voter’s remorse for voting for Obama. Must you take life so literally?

      “If you’re not right, you’re wrong.” is a slogan. Not a headline. It is also a double entendre. A bit of a play on words.

      I know it’s the Democrat way to play victim, pretend to be insulted and all, but you really need to chill, dude.

      Your life might suck right now, but when Republicans take back the House and Senate this year, they will begin creating jobs and improving the economy. It’s what we do. And in 2012 the White House will be restored to sane hands. And the most Conservative ever in all likelyhood, as people shun the Democrats.

      You’ll like it. I promise.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
