Irony Coughing Up Blood

You know the Minutemen, right? The cracker militia that is so fed up with people illegally crossing into their country that they are patrolling the borders themselves?

Last week, they tried to patrol a stretch of border in Arizona… by illegally crossing into Cocopah Indian tribal land.

Happily, the Cocopah Tribal Police told the Yuma Patriots that they were not allowed to go to their planned patrol area. The Patriots then patrolled an area near the reservation, and then lied to make it seem as though the Cocopah police had teamed up with their asses.

This hypocrisy is just one more bit of evidence of what should be obvious: the new anti-immigration movement is not so much pro-border as it is anti-latino.

  1. Yeah, it was pretty obvious from the minute they formed. Racism usually hides behind self-act justifications.

  2. are you kidding? wouldnt it be nice if people would
    stop hiding behiend RACISM to scare off people from
    an issue that needs to be delt with because of their
    personal feelings? label a movement raceist and people
    will distance themselves from it like a fundementalist
    from a bio classroom. Oh by the way generated by
    racism….”The cracker militia” sounds sounds racest to
    me why dont u cry about that?

  3. No, give ME a break… Nobody is hiding behind racism. This is an issue that involves a bunch of people with nothing better to do than “keeping them Mexicans out”. Notice you don’t see a lot of minutemen up at the Canadian border. Terrorists can come in to our country just as easily from the north, but they aren’t concerned with “terrorists” unless they have darker skin and come from Mexico. Sounds racist to me. Keep in mind I’m about as white and suburban as it gets. So, I know a cracker when I see one, and these people are INDEED crackers.

  4. This cheesy ass blog-site could ass least get the facts straight before it spews its leftwing propaganda. For starters the Minute Man Project has nothing to do with what is going on in Yuma Arizona…Secondly the Cocopah tribe is harboring and supporting drug runners as well as illegal aliens coming out of Mexico. Thirdly: the Cocopah tribe does not own the levee roads that the Patriots were going to patrol. So unless you live here and understand how illegal immigration is neg. impacting the local economy/healthcare system, then I suggest you keep your eyes and ears shut and hope this shit does not spill onto your doorstep. Not all of the people coming across our borders are here to work and try to better themselves….some are criminals fleeing justice and many are sick with disease that America had eradicated years ago. Well folks its all coming back!

  5. The group DID illegally go onto the lands owned by the Tribe. They are guilty of doing what they say they hate.

    If immigration is such a problem and hurts the job market and economy force corporations to pay them the same as US workers thus the incentive to illegally hire them is gone. If terrorism and border security matter, get more containers and shipments that come into the US checked.

    Not saying the everyone involved in the Minute Men are racist but many are and there is no logic behind the movmement. Stop ignroing they crossed illegally onto someone else’s land/nation.
