Police, federal agents in raids in Sandusky, Huron
"As near as I can determine, no shots have been fired, no one has been killed and no houses or churches have burned down. I know that muster alerts have gone out to units all over the country, and people are getting ready and awaiting further word.
"But here's the deal, Feds. If you kill anyone or burn somebody's house or church down with them inside, you will have started a civil war, no matter how despicable the Hutaree are, or how crazy, or how provocative. If that happens, there will be NOTHING responsible leaders of the constitutional militia movement will be able to do from our side to stop it. You will have crossed the Rubicon.
"The Hutaree have indicated in the past that, much like John Brown, they WANTED to start a civil war, which is why no responsible militia group in Michigan was willing to ally with them.
"But if you give them what they want, there will be nothing anybody else can do to stop it, you stupid blundering bastards.
"May God have mercy on our country, its arrogant government and uncomprehending people, but, in any case, may God save the Republic!
