The ones in the video are the "AZTLANBUSTERS". They're wanna be activists. They either had their membership pulled or never qualified because of their over aggressiveness.(rogue)
It's ones like this that give us a bad name.
If the MinuteMen were actually like this, for one thing, I'd would have never joined, another, they wouldn't have lasted as long as they did.

I hardly know why there is so much opposition on this thread. Last time I checked anti-gang ANYTHING is positive.

You don't know anything about the MinuteMen, but you can sure throw accusations at them.

Why don't you start reading both sides of the story?

I read the tripe on those nativist websites all the time. Its harder to stomach than all the crap on Mexica's site.

No...theyre about equal. And I consider the information on both types of sites worthless.

But in the meantime you're making untrue allegations about an organization that's proven itself a great help to the Border Patrol.

How are they untrue?
Yes Minutemen patrol armed a lot of the time, and by definition they are vigilantes. Citizens taking the law into their own hands.

Do you consider a Neighborhood Watch a group of vigilantes? Aren't they citizens who try to protect their neighborhood from criminals?

No.
But when they start meeting up, and become armed, and start bullying people who disagree with them, then yeah theyll be a vigilante group.
