Minutemen: Patriotic, or racist

Jul 19, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Baxter Bulletin

“By succumbing to anti-Catholic bigotry and harassment”

SAN DIEGO - The people who call themselves the Minutemen claim to be a cross between a law enforcement auxiliary and a giant neighborhood watch program that patrols the border to stop illegal immigration. via Baxter Bulletin

The minutemen are extreme racists. A lot of people in this nation need to look up the definition of patriotism. Patriotism is not excluding and hunting other races. Patriotism is not blindly following an administration that focuses on war and death. Remember Thou Shalt Not Kill? Where are you on that? Anyone who voted for this president or this war is responsible for the deaths of civilians in the middle east and at home.

Very rarely do I make a confrontational comment like this but shut the f u c k up. Patriotism is defending your country from invaders. Only a complete moron or the hispanic rasists cant see this invasion and the damage it is doing or just dont care about it. Read Pat Buchanan's book State of Emergency and visit sites like numbersusa to see the kind of damage these people are doinging to the economy and the country. Not to mention the Mexican government support for the Re Conquista. There are a lot of video clips on youtube that show the racist attitudes of many of these people. I didnt even know there was a problem until the minutemen got coverage. Im sure most Americans didnt and a lot still dont realize the extent of the damage. People are learning now, and just as that BS bill failed because of us, all this BS is going to stop.

The Minutemen are taking a stand for want is good and right, for Americans! They deserve medals for doing a job the government won't do.

Agree. They just need to try harder to not look like racists. The racism that illegal immigrants have for any race that isn't them; and their contempt of our government, well that's just fine and dandy. But you can't afford that label if you want to be oppositional to them.

You couldn't be farther from the truth. I know many of them. They're doing the work our government doesn't have the courage to do. The minuteman are comprised of Americans of all backgrounds. They're protecting our country from invasion. From a Patriotism standpoint, that's as good as it gets.

Study your history. We have always had an adversarial relationship with Mexico. The Minutemen read their history. They understand it and are acting because of it.

CJ is right; the rest of you need remedial schooling. Your ignorance is astounding. The US STOLE half of Mexico's land, and now you are bitching about THEM being "illegal" and calling them invaders? Pot, meet kettle.
Study your own history, assuming you can read. Start with the Mexican War. You know, the one the patriotic Henry David Thoreau went to jail rather than pay taxes to support? There's a reason for that--the war was flat-out land theft. That makes everyone who has lived there since then, who is not Mexican...an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT.
Suck on that.
The Minutemen are not protecting the border, nor are they standing up for Americans, they're just a bunch of fat-ass do-nothing white idiots who pretend to be patriotic to hide their own shortcomings. Starting with their deep, cowardly racism. End of story.

Well you told us what patriotism IS NOT, now tell us what you THINK IT IS.

I didn't vote for Bush, but I am fully behind the Minutemen. Patriotism is loving your country more than your heritage. Patriotism is being willing to fight to the death for the VALUES that your country stands for. Patriotism is putting your country and it's future FIRST BEFORE your desire for your own personal gain or greed.

The Minutemen are this country's NEW PATRIOTS. They are just as heroic to me as my son and his comrades in Iraq are.

If Mexico is so great why are Mexican coming to the United States for a better life. It's our government and the American citizens that have made this a better place to come to. So come legally, and your welcome, learn English to join us and your welcome. It was our Constitution and Bill of Rights that gives our citizens a better life. Manufacturing that unfortunately is now leaving America is destroying our infrastructure and tax base, all planned by our present politicians, that is stopping this from continuing to be the wonder place we had about the 1950's. Now we have been invaded by people wanting that better life that they do not have in Mexico, because the Mexican government doesn't care shit about the poor Mexicans. The Rich have theirs, and the rest of you they are telling you to go north. Mexico has riches, oil, minerals, space, and great weather, and you starve because there were no jobs. American factories move to Mexico to hire Hispanics for $1 or $2 an hour, polute your land because you have no environmental controls there, and you come here to do dirt jobs, what pride is there in that? Many of you are living 2 or 3 families in one house, or 10 to 20 in one apartment, to save money to send to families in Mexico, because the families in Mexico can't find any work, or live in hovels. Then when you come here you want White people to hire you, to pay you money you can send home. How many construction jobs are you finding that are Hispanic contractors, paying you the union scale? You have no pride in your self so you work for less money than Whites are paid. Your being exploited and you love it? When you learn English, and become an American citizen, then you start to get respect for the country whose system makes all this possible. The freedom we have to build a business, to grow your business, to hire who you want, and work as hard as you want, did you have that in Mexico? No the elite rich government controllers will never give you a chance to get ahead in Mexico, so they love it when you leave. You are being run out of your country, and you had no chance there. If you don't like our system of government, then go back to Mexico and make some changes there. About 15 Years ago Mexico was broke,and borrowed about $39 Billion from the United States. They have never paid that back, and probably won't because they are crooks. Now President Bush is trying to erase our borders to make Canada, the United States and Mexico all one nation, the North American Union. We Americans have to stop that treason. This is not the United Nations, we must not allow our Constitution to be destroyed, out of date, and our Bill of Rights cancelled. America must fight back and protect our nation. NO New World Order, don't let the Republicans and Democrats get elected, or that is the future of America. No United Stated ever again. You will all be disarmed, we will be under Martial Law as the United Nations troops enter to take over our government, all orchestrated by the Rockefellers, and the Trilateral Commission.
Once we have been disarmed there will be no future revolution. This next election will be the last in America if Don Cordell is not elected.

Thank you for that, it goes further to prove the point. Illegal Immigrants are just that, it's not you to decide which territories belong to the US. If you had read your history, you'd know it started in texas and ended in mexico city. Until the line was drawn.

What if it had gone the other way and the western US was Mexican territory, you think the government would be any less corrupt since their country is larger.

There probably wouldn't be minutemen if illegal immigrants would just respect the laws and hold themselves to some kind of social responsibility outside of their own culture. But instead they remorselessly use fraud to take advantage of our system. Many show no interest in learning english. A lot of their children put no value on education and our schools suffer. Their families put no interest in due process or responsibility for our welfare system so citizens suffer. they show no interest in cleaning up districts they live in, so those areas turn into slums. And not only are we supposed to live with it, we're supposed to keep the door open so it can spread!?

We're taught tolerance our whole lives and I'd say this country has been more than accomodating but a lot of people are fed up with the lack of tolerance and social responsibility that immigrants are bringing into this country.

OH Canada! Actually, for the most part, it was not the "well-heeled" educated British colonists who were with Washington at Valley Forge. Nor was it the elite who confronted British troops at Concord. In fact, Atticus was a free black. But these fat do-nothings knew tyranny when they saw it. And the guys willing to do something about the illegal invasion of our southern borders know a mortal threat when they see one. The only thing were lacking is an inspirational leader of the quality of George Washington. We're stuck with the retarded scion of an oil baronial family. Jeff Sessions for president.

So exactly what race are they targeting? The Illegal Alien race? Oh, yeah, that's not a race. The Mexican race? Oh, yeah, that's not a race, either. They're protecting us from the illegal invasion and until illegal alien becomes a race, they are not targeting a race. It is not their (or our) fault that the majority of the illegal invaders are of a Hispanic ethnicity...not race, but ethnicity.

Go back to school and learn something. It would do you good.

Make sure you keep your stanky Canadian arse up there in Canada where it belongs.

You should study history. The Mexican-American war wasn't supported by everyone -- and that is true for every war. That doesn't, however, make it illegal. We won the war and we paid Mexico for the land - read the Treaty of Hidalgo. It's ours. Mexico owned it for barely 30 years. Someone owned it before them for a lot longer than that, and we've owned it for 160 years. Gee, possession is 9/10 of the law, after all. Who did the Mexicans steal it from? Why should they get it back?

You're a clueless idiot. They are here illegally and they will go back. Period.

You racist Latinos do not know any history. Mexico surrendered the land after the Mexican-American war and then they were paid for the land with the Treaty of Hidalgo. How many times do we have to tell you racist Latinos that is the history and the reality? No stolen land or anything like that. Aztlan is a made up concept by some Chicano Studies Professors in the 1960's. Racist, go home! Racist, go home!

Yeah many latinos are catholic.

I'd say this particular church brought the picket on themselves by allowing day laborers to solicit there.

And it's the catholic church that earned themselves the reputation as pedophiles, not religious bigots.
