The leader of an effort to rally a Bundy Ranch-style militia at the Texas border said this week that his troops were fighting for "national sovereignty."
"We have patriots all across this country who are willing to sacrifice their time, their monies, even quit their jobs to come down and fight for freedom, liberty and national sovereignty," Chris Davis said, as quoted by Rio Grande Valley TV station KRGV.
Davis would not tell KRGV how many members make up his group, Operation Secure Our Border, nor offer an outline of when and where the group planned the deploy along the Texas-Mexico border.
Davis, who has been identified as a member of the Second Amendment activist group Open Carry Texas, also reportedly released a YouTube video recently in which he issued a warning to those migrants crossing the border illegally: "Get back across the border or you will be shot."
Make no mistake dear readers, when these Bundy ranch sycophants talk about "national sovereignty," what they are really referring to is the fantasy America that they have manufactured in the deepest and darkest recesses of their tiny, bigoted, racist, and fascist minds.
And you truly just have to laugh at the "leader" of this militia group threatening to shoot any migrants he comes across. First of all, regardless of whether the migrant has crossed the border legally or not, shooting an unarmed person, citizen or not, is still regarded as a crime of murder in this country, so yeah -- go ahead tough guy, shoot a skinny, dehydrated, starving and unarmed Guatemalan woman in front of her kids and let's find out how the rest of America responds to your macho "heroism."
And besides, The Gadfly wonders, -- who died and appointed this swaggering buffoon border Sheriff?
The Gadfly didn't think it possible, but his deep-seated loathing of these stupid, jagoff right wing nuts escalates incrementally by the day.
