The Rambo wannabes are trolling for attention . . . again . . .
After stumbling out of the gate last month, militia activists in Texas are now appearing along the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a vigilante campaign to “secure our border” in the midst of a refugee crisis involving unaccompanied children from Central America.
According to a handful of news reports out of Texas, the militiamen – who initially were nowhere to be seen after publicizing their plans last month – are now conducting patrols in some areas in hopes of stopping incursions by border crossers.
The San Antonio Express-News published a report this week that listed some of the groups that have been involved in the patrols and included numerous photos of the militiamen.
Strikingly, the patrols are being organized secretively, and all the militiamen involved have insisted on anonymity.
The photos published with the report show dozens of men wearing camouflage gear and carrying a variety of semi-automatic weapons, patrolling areas of the border of southern Texas. In some cases, the men are wearing masks; in others, their faces have been blurred by photo retouching.
Lol -- anonymity? The Gadfly thought they were great American patriots sacrificing their lives and limbs to save the rest of us from the marauding hordes of brown skinned Central American warrior moppets. Why wouldn't they want us to know who they are so that we might bestow our eternal appreciation upon them for the brave deeds which they are engaging in?
Did George Washington and the Minutemen insist on anonymity prior to engaging the British? Did Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie insist on anonymity before giving their lives to defend The Alamo? Did Audie Murphy insist on anonymity while single-handedly holding off an entire company of Germans for an hour at the Colmar Pocket in France in January 1945, then leading a counter charge while wounded and out of ammunition? Hell no!!
So why are these "patriots" insisting on hiding behind masks and blurred photos?
Could it possibly be because their enemy looks something like this:
These "militia" clowns represent the true caliber of courage that resides in the sniveling, wimipish hearts of your modern-day conservatives and Teabagger types.
Running around the desert amped up on nicotine and Red Bull and just itching to put a bullet in the back of a terrified and fleeing immigrant woman and her toddler kids. Impressive.
They make The Gadfly ill to his stomach quite honestly.
