Anti-Government Citizen Militia Groups Want to 'Secure the Border' In Texas
The Houston Chronic ^ | July 7, 2014 2:45PM | Kolten Parker

A slew of anti-government groups -- many of which participated in the standoff at Cliven Bundy's Nevada ranch -- are recruiting armed volunteers to travel to the Texas-Mexico border as a citizen militia to participate in "Operation Secure Our Border," which aims to stop the surge of immigrants into the country.

The groups, who identify themselves as "Patriots," "Oathkeepers" and "Three Percenters," are using social media, blogs and a 24-hour hotline to recruit and mobilize volunteers that will travel to Laredo, carry firearms and attempt to assist law enforcement agencies on the border.

However, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said they do not "endorse or support any private group or organization from taking matters into their own hands as it could have disastrous personal and public safety consequences."

Volunteers are being vetted through criminal background checks

"In California the rabid amnesty supporters are threatening to kill the people preventing the busses from getting into Murrieta."

In California, the rabid amnesty supporters Hispanics are threatening to kill the people preventing the busses from getting into Murrieta. old white people.

In Cal, this is what it boils down to; Mexican/American War II.

“Somebody has to do it if the government won’t”

Liberal logic. Guarding the boarders is the responsibility of government. Wanting them to do their job is pro government. Wanting them not to is anti government.

Indeed, that’s the age-old reality. Corrupt government, no enforcement, no rule of law, and only the arbitrary rule of tyrants. It becomes the outright duty of the citizenry to take the reigns, even if in the shadows of darkness. Just like vigilance committees were necessitated in the old west, to restore order to communities. With Obama, those days are returning.

Anti-government is a little harsh, I think of them as pro-American.

if the govt was doing its constitutional jobs and keeping illegals out and securing the border, instead of actually busing the illegals into the country, maybe people would appear more pro-govt.

when the people who want govt to do what they are tasked to do, are cast as anti-govt, world is upside down.

Anti-Federalists were concerned that the constitution did not equally divide power among the three branches of government. They also worried about giving the federal government the power to regulate commerce.

This is the only chance we have. King Obama, the communists BLACK Muslim Terrorists, will do nothing. He wanted to destroy America and has done it with the help of the communists Democrats, every damn one of them, the MSM and Hollywood insane. I hate to be so negative but the reality is this rotten piece of garbage has put America is a position that it would take generations to correct even if we had the three branches of government for these generations.

Obama is anti American. Patriots are pro America. Government has nothing to do with it.

This is not going to warm Gov. Perry to the idea of calling up the reserve militia. He’ll see them as renegades who can’t follow orders.

CORRECTION: Many of the protesters in Murrieta are non-white.
In fact, from the photos and the eye-witnesses, you’ve pretty much got a cross-section of America protesting there - and in other places.

Remember: War is when the government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you figure it out for yourself.

We now have, and have had for quite some time, a government that is destructive to the ends of securing life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for its citizenry.

“Bang!”...”What was that?”

The schoolhouse rock graphic is weird - the shot comes from somewhere in China and the person hearing it was in California.

Here in Houston it's typically known as the "Carbuncle" or the "Comical".

Let those supporters take a one way 9 day bus ride back to the country these invaders came from & escort them safely ‘home’.

Do not let the supporters of the invaders re-enter the USA.
