Hutaree Speech: is this Terrorist Talk or Just Someone With a Mouth?

There is no public source that contains the full speech made by Hutaree leader David Brian Stone in February 2010 to his assembled followers as they turned around to go home. The Christian militia that was allegedly to bring “war” to the U.S. government was prevented by a bit of winter weather from making it to a summit of militia groups, so Stone read off his remarks anticlimactically over the roar of the interstate.

No, we don’t have the whole speech, but CNN and CBS have made parts of it available. Read what you can and ask yourself: is this the talk of a terrorist, or is it (as the Hutaree defense claims) just someone who “has an opinion and knows how to use his mouth”?

“In this nation, we think we are free, but you need a certificate to be born, a license to drive, a permit to build, a number to get a job and even a paper after you die. These are permission slips from the terrorist organization called the New World Order.”

“People in this nation, as well as some around this world, are waiting for those individuals like you see sitting in this room to actually make the decision to go to war against this evil, greedy New World Order. They need leaders who are not afraid to stand up and actually mean No More. We are free and we should not be afraid or ashamed to admit that we are the American militia. We outnumber them. As long as we let them terrorize any American through fear and intimidation, then they are winning this battle, and we should step up to the fight that they have started and finish it.”

“Every day, we watch ever so close for those evil blue helmets to appear on our streets. But as long as, through Interpol, law enforcement mercenaries called the brotherhood working for the New World Order are doing such a great job, then we don’t need to watch for these foreign armies to come to our shores. They are already here.

“People should not be afraid of the government. The government should fear the people.”

“Now it’s time to strike and take our nation back so we will be free of tyranny. The war will come whether we are ready or not.”

Does your opinion change when you’re told that David Brian Stone had an undercover FBI agent make explosives for him? Does your opinion change when you’re told that it was the undercover FBI agent who catalyzed the turn from talk to concrete plans for action?

  • David Stone is talking about striking, going to war. If someone whispered the idea into his ear, he still took it and worked with it as the leader of his Christian militia.

    Stone is a nut, if he thinks that the little militia here and there outnumber the U.S. Army and federal law enforcement.

    People should not be afraid of the government. Neither should government fear the people. The people should form the government and keep it theirs, making fear-based organizations like the Department of Homeland Security and the Hutaree militia irrelevant.

    are you sure that wasn’t a verbatim recital of michele bachmann’s rally speech?
    is hutaree spanish for tea party?
    do 50% of americans really fall for this B.S.?

      thinking more on the entire subject, i have a theory(more than likely, not an original). remember “the dumming of america”, where the right wing decimated our school system? now that the job has been a resounding success they are reaping the benefits with the tea party mentality.
      someone once laid a clever line on me, “no brains, no headaches”.
      the teabaggers haven’t used a single aspirin in years.

    I never believed any of it in the first place…

    This website has been hysterical about this.

    Things are really deteriorating fast here in the U.S. prison state. Check this out:

    I love that they asked for “Public Defenders” (and they thought they could bring down our government), undercover FBI agent, sweet. Since their inception the Teaparty crowd (not a movement since they do have the numbers or clout) because they are haters not debaters or as others have dubbed them screamers not dreamers. The simpleton Tea baggers are the same whiners that were crying when the McCain/Bailin ticket lost. Now that their yelling and screaming failed to stop the health care debate and the bill from passing they are crying again. Lets face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. The Republicans are good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. Instead of participating in the health care debate of ideas the Republicans party turned inward to your old fashion obstructionist party. In my opinion the Republican Waterloo loss was caused by the party allowing a small portions (but very loud) of the republican party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to take over their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that preform abortions). The Teaparty crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and presidents like Hamiliton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believe that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now its about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. Although some Republicans are trying to distant themselves from this fringe most of them, having no game plan/ vision for our country, are just going along and fanning the flames. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits. But they now claim they have changed, come on, what sucker is going to believe that? All I can say to you is remember Waterloo.

    If someone says he’s going to come to your home and beat you to a pulp, the police can do nothing until he does. If someone threatens the government, it is termed terrorism and dealt with expeditiously via the many security agencies as we have seen in occasions like Waco, Ruby Ridge &c. David Stone obviously cannot mount a military campaign against the US Armed Forces, meaning there’s some delusions of grandeur inherent, but as alluded by others there is consonant a parallel with many another group of government naysayers, Tea Partiers among them. In what has become a police state/prison state, America seeks to silence freedom of speech that does not praise the status quo. It is difficult to discern precisely who the terrorists are in such circumstances. The battle lines are fuzzy, frayed, blurry.
