I am concerned with simcox’x white supremacist rumors.
A sound denunciation of white supremacist ideas from him would be a good idea. If he as already done this, please point me to it.
He started the speech I saw talking about how his group is not bigots. During the speech, he pointed out that the media came to the Minuteman Project looking for rednecks looking to shoot Mexicans and were disappointed with what they found.
He said nothing that struck me as unusual or white supremacist in any way and made a point to say that’s not what he’s about.
He offered empathy for illegals who are legitimately coming here wanting a better life (most of his contempt was directed at the government in general and Bush specifically).
They don’t do border patrols every day, but they do have volunteers who do search and rescue for folks stranded in the desert - not really what I would expect from a white supremacist.
I don’t know what’s in his heart, and perhaps there’s things in his background I am unaware of, but I don’t think Simcox is a bigot.
