1. Murder, robbery, child molesting - border patriots have some history

Murder, robbery, child molesting – border patriots have some history

“It really attracted a lot of people that had some pretty extreme issues,”

During the past four years, the Minuteman groups that defined conservative immigration policy during the mid-to-late-2000s have mostly self-destructed—sometimes spectacularly so. Founding Minuteman leaders are in prison, facing criminal charges, dead, or sidelined. “It really attracted a lot of people that had some pretty extreme issues,” says Juanita Molina, executive director of the Border Action Network, an advocacy group that provides aid to migrants in the desert. “We saw the movement implode on itself mostly because of that.” An analysis by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors right-wing extremist groups, found that the number of Minuteman groups in the Southwest had declined from 310 to 38 between 2010 and 2012.

2. Comically stupid thinking

, “I promise you, if these people were armed and started shooting at us, a lot more people would take this more seriously and they’d call it an invasion. Unfortunately, because of the fact that they’re not armed and they’re coming in and invading us, it’s not an ‘invasion.’”


Mean liberals keep using facts against us! And we are so mad!
