Is that what you call vigilantism?
Arent they doing the job that they claim the Border Patrol can't do?

n.
  1. <LI minmax_bound="true">One who takes or advocates the taking of law enforcement into one's own hands.
  2. A member of a vigilance committee.
So I can't use any kind of news whatsoever? Without "MSM", and "illegal support groups", I'm basically left with those stupid nativist websites and my eyewitnesses? Oookay.
You have eye witnesses? or videos? let's hear it.

I guess you have no idea what the Minutemen do, which would explain your spouting the tripe you hear from the Mexica crowd.

Hahah youre really trying to tie my hand behind my back, huh?
Its funny how against the "MSM" you guys are, yet thats where you get almost ALL of your info from. The rest is just hearsay and speculation.
You like the "MSM" when it backs up your opinion, but if it says something you disagree with, its "typical pro-illegal MSM"

Everything we did was approved by the BP.
We had to have a permit in order to setup camp.

Am I making that up? Did they not say they do what the Border Patrol can't?

As much as I dislike Mecha, I'm going to have to agree with what AMC says here. It's a bunch of smack talking but little physical violence. The KKK used to be all about the actual intimidation and violence.

What they say is that they assist the Border Patrol by being their eyes and ears out there in the desert.

They are. They are doing the Border Patrol's jobs as citizens. They are guarding the border, armed.
