“”Forde’s organization is not directly connected to the more commonly known minutemen organization, Minutemen Civil Defense Corps or the Minutemen project run by Chris Simcox and James Gilchrist. “ The only connection is a common word in their name but of course they will not make this clear”
The only connection is Shawna Forde, who was apparently involved with MCDC at a high level until she was asked to leave in 2007. She is also involved in MMP with Gilchrist at some level. He has issued statements of support for both Forde and MAD, which is her minuteman group.
