Perhaps this will dispel the assertion that this woman is the poster girl for the Minuteman Group.

Quote:
Shawna Forde was known for her outspoken opposition to illegal immigration and even claimed last year that she was being targeted by Mexican drug cartels.

But her behavior proved too much even for the Washington state chapter of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, a national organization known for its surveillance of the U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico.

Forde, who grew up in Everett and ran unsuccessfully for Everett City Council in 2007, was ousted by the Minuteman group two years ago for "conduct unbecoming of a member."

She started her own Minuteman group (Minutemen American Defense).

Before you same they are not the same let me ask if you distinguish a difference between the Crips and Bloods or 18th Street and Salvatrucha?

minute men equal gang bangers? COME ON ....insert huge rolling eyes here. When is the last time MM robbed a 7/11? When was the last time MM got in a shoot out with Police? When was the last time MM shook down a hood for a "tax".

Polar ends of the planet. This was one kook not any type of gang and she was using her do good mask as cover. Shrewd but still a dummy as she got caught.

We could say the same about La Raza and MecHa.

Perhaps a "rap sheet" comparison is in order here....Or a Law Enforcement Agency (FBI, and DHS just to keep it balanced) rating as to the relative "threat" posed by each group.

just a thought...

Will await facts ......

Never said they were the same as gangs. I used it to make a point. That Shawna's MM group is/was the same as other MM groups.

And since you bring it up, this article highlights a crime committed by a MM member.

I'm sure that there are individuals in almost any group in the world that are racist, but that doesn't make that organization and what it stands for racist. Volunteering to guard the border and report people breaking the law does not equal racism.

The government really needs to crack on illegal aliens and their enablers first.
