Youve got to be kidding.

Did you watch tv last spring? See all the illegals marching down the streets? Did you see how the illegals raised the Mexican flag on government property, including post offices? Blocking traffic on California interstates?

In NC, 65% of Latinos are here illegally.

God Bless the Minuteman! We need more.

I believe that's what Moving2Fl was saying -the minutemen are patroits, they are necessary. And I agree we certainly need more of them, they should be all along the both borders.

Nothing will be done unless the American Middle-Class does something.

Unfortunatly, the powers that be scream "racism" (you know the groups, the ADL, the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, etc) so it scares Whites away from actually saving their nation.

When did we become such weaklings?

Sure. Do something. But do something smart.

Arming a bunch of angry locals and setting them loose is not only entirely ineffective in the long run, it is potentially dangerous.

happens to be part of the cmp (civilan marksmenship programm)started by congress
in no way fits the def. of vigilante does it ?you have no depth for research and you are lost .ie not worth saving


las vegas dude...there is no such thing as race anthropology 101..culture does exist and when you lose the blinders of race things start to make sense real quick.Race is also the last refuge of thos e without an argument.And if you do have a misguided belief in race then your How can immigrants get EBT? thread would make many believe you are racist .i dont think you are cause i dont have on the race blinders.Culture clears it all right up

No, you're mistaken Mark S. I recognize the term is used to smear the Minutemen because of the historical connotation of the word. However, the Minutemen do not prosecute lawbreakers (illegal migrants they spot) with their own justice, nor do they take any personal action again illegal migrants. They notify the Border Patrol - the legal means for handling the issue. They operate much like a national Neighborhood Watch and well within their rights as citizens. They also seek and get permission from private landowners to access their properties that abut the Mexican border and otherwise congregate in public areas.

Definition of Vigilante: somebody who punishes lawbreakers personally rather than relying on the legal authorities (Encarta)

Because they do not prosecute (take the law into their own hands) or take personal action against illegal migrants and they scrupulously avoid confrontation and simply alert the proper authorities instead of taking action themselves, they are not vigilantes.

If you can provide an instance where they have done so, I'd love to see it. But your use of the term for arguments sake is misusing it. I realize you don't agree with the existance or activities of the Minutemen, but to smear them with a purposely inflammatory term that is not applicable to them for arguments sake isn't right or fair.
