It would be very easy, if you have room on your disk, to initialize a
partition as ext2. Then mount both that partition and the HFS
partition in the installer environment (you'll need mount -t hfs for
the one) and use cp -R to copy everything to the linux partition. 

Then, to remove the metadata, if you mounted the new partition at
/mnt and your top level folder is 'debian', use 

rm -r `find /mnt/debian/ -name '.resource'`
rm -r `find /mnt/debian/ -name '.finderinfo'`

The hfs partition won't let you remove them in place, AFAIK. You have
to copy them first.
