Is this what you wanted, you fascists?
I hope you’re happy now.
Americans all of a sudden feel entitled to gun down Syrian/Guatemalan children at the border.
Gun-carrying civilian groups and border vigilantes have heard a call to arms in President Trump’s warnings about threats to American security posed by caravans of Central American migrants moving through Mexico. They’re packing coolers and tents, oiling rifles and tuning up aerial drones, with plans to form caravans of their own and trail American troops to the border.
“We’ll observe and report, and offer aid in any way we can,” said Shannon McGauley, a bail bondsman in the Dallas suburbs who is president of the Texas Minutemen. McGauley said he was preparing to head for the Rio Grande in coming days.
Mobilization is in full swing.
Boomer death squads are no joking matter.
Although, I wish Trump or Trump Jr. would realize that old people can’t be trusted and instead send down the eager, loyal and younger Neon-Nazi divisions to guard the border.
The Texas Minutemen, according to McGauley, have 100 volunteers en route to the Rio Grande who want to help stop the migrants, with more likely on the way.
“I can’t put a number on it,” McGauley said. “My phone’s been ringing nonstop for the last seven days. You got other militias, and husbands and wives, people coming from Oregon, Indiana. We’ve even got two from Canada.”
Asked whether his group planned to deploy with weapons, McGauley laughed. “This is Texas, man,” he said.
Texas tough guy talk. And for once, actually worth something. Awesome, really awesome. Trump brings out the best in people, I suppose.
But the military is quite upset that these militia guys are headed down. Their commanders are already planning to shut them down.
And yet, the prospect of armed vigilantes showing up beside thousands of U.S. troops — along with Border Patrol agents, police officers and migrants — is considered serious enough that military planners have issued warnings to Army commanders.
According to military planning documents obtained by Newsweek, the military is concerned about the arrival of “unregulated militia members self-deploying to the border in alleged support” of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The assessment estimates that 200 militia members could show up. “They operate under the guise of citizen patrols,” the report said, while warning of “incidents of unregulated militias stealing National Guard equipment during deployments.”
So they think that the militias will start stealing their weapons and supplies?
Although people who actually live on the border seem to be not so keen on these militia guys.
Michael Vickers, a veterinarian and rancher who lives an hour north of the border in Falfurrias, said that he will not let militia members from outside the area onto his property and that he doubts most area landowners would trust outsiders.
“They are a bunch of guys with a big mouth and no substance to them,” said Vickers, a Republican who heads the 300-strong Texas Border Volunteers. The group doesn’t call itself a militia, although it patrols ranchland to intercept migrants who hike through the brush to attempt to avoid Border Patrol checkpoints. The group uses ATVs, night-vision goggles, spotlights and trained dogs.
In our circles, we refer to such people as LARPers, Mr. Vickers.
So the jury is out on these militia groups.
The underlying and unstated fear that some patriots and nationalists might have is that these unknown militia guys are filled to the brim with feds and idiots who might trigger a false flag migrant killing to elicit sympathy from the MSM and guilt-trip the American people.
Killing these brown invader scum dead right now might not be the best strategy.
Or at the very least, having Trump-supporting militia types doing it is not the best strategy.
The military has to do it.
The US Army has to, for once, protect America, and not Israel. The soldiers can’t be prosecuted, but over-eager citizen volunteers can. And the soldiers still have the cult of the yellow ribbon behind them in the court of public opinion, which RWDS do not. You do not have the right to critique a soldier in American society, but a militia member is considered a freak and an easy target for ridicule.
Overall, I started out eager, but as I read on, I began to have doubts about these militia guys.
Can’t have these hotheads running around just yet.
Let the President handle this one.
