Border Group Dissolves, Cites Impending Violence

The border watch group called The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps has announced that it will be dissolving the parent corporation after an 8 year run. They are citing impending violence as the reason and are dissolving to remove the possibility of being held liable for it.

An email alert sent out by MCDC President Carmen Mercer explains: “I’m afraid that for many citizens, the passing of health care against the will of the people and now indications that Obama will try to pass amnesty may be the straw that will break the spirit, or may be the straw that ignites frustration that we, as an organization, may not be able to manage or contain.”

She continues, “This organization has grown too big for its own good; or rather, the problem has grown too big and serious for us to manage. I predict soon the violence will spill over the border (it already is) and I predict Americans, on their own, will lock, load and do what the feckless cowards in Washington refuse to do.”

“People are fed up,” Mercer writes, “Many had decided to return to the border who had tired of the sometimes futile watch-and-observe methods. It showed me that people are not willing to be silenced anymore; it also showed me that people will be less likely to follow the rules of engagement in a desperate attempt to stop the criminals who violate our borders every day.

“That is not what we want and we cannot take the responsibility for this,” she concludes.

It is sad to see them officially close up shop, tho legally it is the right decision. But what is worrisome is that this group has been on the border for nearly a decade and done so without violence. That they feel it is at a point where it cannot be kept in check indicates just how bad it is.

This will be yet another wedge between the States, specifically the southern border States, and the FedGov who will no doubt try to stop the States and their citizenry from defending themselves.

    Probably the right thing to do. Mob control is always a difficult thing. Acting alone has less security tactically, but more security strategically. You have more freedom, but no one to watch your back while you sleep. In this difficult period of transition you don’t want to find yourself as someone else’s scapegoat. False flag operations in large established groups are just too easy.

    I have been meaning to ask: what is with the cartoon tomato icons in the comments? Can I change those to something that amuses me ?

    Personally I think you look good as a tomato! And as for why you are a green tomato, it is either due to some computer randomness based upon your email address (so wordpress would have us believe) or more likely to cosmic karma. Perhaps you have eaten to many in your life? The whole you-are-what-you-eat deal?

    But if you really want to change it go to http://www.gravatar.com and sign up with them. I just updated mine, finally, as you can no doubt tell.

    If you were trying to link to something it didn’t make it.

    I made my image a Kit Kat Bar.

    Normally, I have a go board, and I hope it stays that way elsewhere, but… here it’s a Kit Kat Bar, I guess.

    Amstrat, I would check the other blogs you post on because it may have changed there too.

    Yep, probably a good move, because given the choice between protecting Americans and their interests and illegal aliens and Mexican drug-runner’s interest, the FedGov would choose the latter.

    Even against their own. Remember Ramos and Compean?

    Also the false flag threat is a huge one. I wouldn’t put it past MeCHa or any other of the pro-illegal Mexican agitation group or the FedGov itself to do an op like that to discredit the MinuteMen. The former for obvious reasons, the latter because gummint always hates competition.
