The Minutemen are building a fence
Before Bush called them “vigilantes” I heard the leader of the Minutemen describe his mission. It was-paraphrasing- “to draw attention to the porousness of the border so that the Feds could fix it”
Since that time, I believe it has dawned on them that the Feds notion of ‘fixing’ the border means opening it.
And now we see a change in attitude reminiscent of my slow about face in matters Bush.
from the MinuteMan site comes this choice quote:
“Should President Bush and Congress fail to fulfill their oaths of office, and meet their Constitutional obligation to protect these United States from invasion, we, the sovereign people of the United States, having suffered a long train of abuses at the hand of a willfully insolent government, do hereby declare that these States ought, should and will be protected by American Minutemen.”
“Willfully insolent government” describes it well.
