Obama Birther Facing Gun Charges in Attempted Takeover of Town

Posted By on Fri, Jun 11, 2010 at 7:53 AM

Darren Wesley Huff is what happens when politicians and radio talk show hosts throw gasoline on the flames of the rage on the right. Huff strapped a gun to his hip, tossed two more handguns and an AK-47 assault rifle into his truck and took off for Sweetwater, Tenn., where he says he planned to join a mob of Obama birthers, lay siege to the town and arrest all traitors refusing to indict the president as a foreigner. When a state trooper stopped Huff for traffic violations, he freely admitted his scheme. According to authorities:

"Huff said he was ready to die for his rights. Huff (said) that if necessary, they would come back and have a lot more armed people to take over the courthouse and effect all the arrests."

Jamie Satterfield details this entire bizarre episode in today's Knoxville News Sentinel. According to the article, Huff wasn't making up any of this. About 20 extremists did stalk around Sweetwater with guns for a while threatening to make "citizens' arrests," but they were outnumbered by law officers who shut down the courthouse and sent the workers home.

Huff, who faces arraignment today on federal charges, lives in Georgia. He owns a handgun carry permit. He was going to the state border to do something about Obama. Sounds close to what Zach Wamp has been vowing to do at every stop in his campaign for governor, doesn't it?
