Liberaland: Rep. Don Young’s Unsavory Ties To Domestic Terrorist Group

March 12, 2011- Alaska Republican Representative Don Young has had more than his share of ethical issues over the 38 years of his Congressional tenure, but this time he may have gone too far.  This time, his offense has nothing to do with bribery, earmark abuse, or even his long history of general corruption.

Federal agents recently arrested four leaders of a Fairbanks-based militia on charges of conspiring to commit murder, kidnapping and arson. The group had been plotting to kill or kidnap judges and Alaska State Troopers and burn down their houses.

Turns out that in 2009, Young attended a “Second Amendment Task Force Day” organized by the mastermind behind the Alaska Peacekeeper’s Militia, Schaeffer Cox. During that event, the representative even went so far as to sign a declaration calling for armed resistance against any government attempts to “further tax, restrict or register firearms … thus impairing our ability to exercise the God-given right to self-defense that precedes all human legislation and is superior to it.”
