Hutaree Member Angered By Fake Hamas Resettlement Bill

March 31, 2010 12:04 p.m.

The Detroit Free Press notices that charged Hutaree militia member Tina Stone bemoaned the passage of H.R. 1388 on her Facebook page recently. That bill has been the subject of a false chain email that warns President Obama provided money to settle Hamas members in the United States.

(Stone made the statements on the same page that features the militia wedding photos we told you about yesterday.)

“H.B. 1388 Passed…. It’s bad news for us all,” she wrote.She added: “I’m peeved,,, when people in this country is getting kicked out of there homes everyday and our government passes a bill to spend more then 20 billion dollars to bring Hamas here and supplies them with food and homes that just wrong.”

It’s pretty clear that Stone got these bogus ideas about H.R. 1388 from a chain email that has been thoroughly debunked by

The email warns: “Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA. This is the news that didn’t make the headlines…”

According to, the bill “actually expands AmeriCorps and other federal public service programs, more than tripling the total number of positions to 250,000.”
