Jim Gilchrist one of the founders of the Minutemen Project said hes reaching out across America to recruit at least 3,500 volunteers who will go to the border to patrol and cover the porous areas between San Diego and Brownsville, Texas.
The campaign is called Operation Normandy, and its set for May 1, 2015, Raw Story reported.
If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be, Mr. Gilchrist said, Raw Story reported. However, there is one difference. We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.
Mr. Gilchrist insisted that the campaign should remain peaceful.
His No. 1 rule for participants, as posted on his Minuteman Project website: Whatever you do, stay within the rule of law.(continued)

May 1, 2014 would have been a better date to have started this...
I hate these people already. They are comparing the United States to Nazi Germany, and Mexico to the Allies? Screw them! Do they know how Normandy ended? The invaders won. Screw these anti-American idiots.
Where’s a drone when you need one?
If this Jim Gilchrist think the U.S. is such a evil country why doesn’t he move to Russia pr somewhere else? I hate communist trash like this.
Did you read the article?
If they were comparing us to Nazi-held France, I think they would've used the name "Operation Atlantic Wall".
Do you what Normandy was? That was when the Allies invaded Nazi Germany. So, they are saying the Illegal immigrants are brave liberators and the U.S. are Nazis. Anti-American scum like that makes me sick. You approve?
“We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.
Read his comments again.
Nickcarraway is right, if a little overwrought. Poor choice for a name. I’m not convinced it was an intentional insult tho.
Read your quote. That further indicts him. He isn’t just doing it out of ignorance, he KNOWS what he is doing. Because he is Nazi Germany was not invading anyone at Normandy, they were, “there to stop an invasion.” So he is DIRECTLY comparing the United States and the immigrants to the Allies, which included our U.S. service members. That’s a vile disgusting lie. This needs to be put down. This man should not be able to get away with this.
He should change the name, right?
Then it's doomed from the start.
Maybe I am a little overwrought, but I don’t like my country being compared to Nazi Germany, and I don’t like an organization taking advantage of 24,000 allied troops, including 10,000 casualties, and more than 4,000 dead. They don’t deserve this.
Yes. Someone didn’t think this through at all.
maybe he did get the name wrong, but he seems like one of the “good guys” that we need more of in this country... lots of border info among other info on the MM site
Appreciate the efforts. Maybe the date was typed wrong..surely they meant August, 2014.
They are good guys don’t worry. Numerous complaints were broadcasted in the local media outlets at the border because these guys were actually helping to deter the illegals from crossing the border and into San Diego County. As you all know, when the MSM tries to demonize a group, you KNOW they are FOR THE CONSTITUTION.
1954 Miles. We will be spread kind of thin.
Just shut up. Gilchrist is trying to repel an invasion. What are you doing, other than bitching about nothing?
Rather bizarre that he picked May 1 (communist high holiday), Normandy was a blood bath, and finally - if they are coming across at 10,000 per month - by May 1, 2015, everyone who is coming will already be here. I think.
It is confusing with the name, but in Normandy the Germans were the invaders and the US and British went there to restore the original order.
Gilchrist is trying to repel an invasion.
He is NOT doing any such thing. His whole operation is allegedly scheduled for a year out. Waiting a whole year? What good is it going to do then? Obama must be laughing at this guy. He's probably working for Obama. He is just sitting around raking in money under false pretenses. A real group needs to be started immediately and this guy's ass needs to be kicked to the curb.
If he is one of the good guys he will change the name immediately.
You aren't claiming the U.S. has been sending people onto Mexican territory?
Intended misinformation by media marxist pc police purposely portrayed to make this movement look bad.

just thought id share for those who didn’t know
Then YOU start it. Are you down in Texas with Jim Rob today?
Where did you get that he’s communist trash and hates America?
Who else would compare the U.S. to Nazi Germany in such a way, or belittle the sacrifice of June 6th, 1944?
And I don't like my country ACTING like Nazi Germany.
Neither does Gilchrist, which is why he is trying to stem the tide of Nazi (aka Democrat) enablers into America. The name is slightly confusing, but the gist is that Overlord was meant to rescue a country, and what Gilchrist is trying to pull together is meant to rescue a country. So, Operation Normandy it is.
I don’t think/believe anyone is saying anything or implying any such thing as you apparently do. As a WWII vet with service in the Pacific and some free thinking I applaud any true USA citizen who is making an effort to change what has been going on at the border.
He's not defending the Nazis, and he's definitely not a communist. But you on the other hand are sounding like a troll from DUmmy land.
You've never heard of the Minutemen that Gilchrist helped to organize? (And no, I'm not talking about the Minutemen in the Revolutionary timeframe, so don't get your panties in a wad over that).
You pointed out that somebody needs to do something? Where is your organization and signup list? When are you heading to the border to stop the invasion?
What are you talking about? DID you read the article??
Stop the invasion with what; protest signs, bean bags? The “porous area” is in the Whitehouse but no one is willing to entertain the fact that this the most brilliant coup in history. Obama is using cargo vans and buses instead of tanks and artillary with stunning success. If anyone thinks this country will ever be restored to any semblance of its noble founding ideas without a real war is delusional and that seems to be what most Americans happen to be at this time. Sorry, keyboards and movements or even the voting process ain’t gonna fix this. It’s gone too far. We’ve been “transformed” and all but defeated by a mastermind(Obama could just be a front) that has used our own media, transport system and government resources to accomplish its ends. We will either succumb and abandon all hope of being America again or the majority will wake up and fight, literally and in the true sense of the word.
Unfortunately, the majority of Americans think that option is never going to become necessary.
Dude. Go take your meds. Your sounding deranged.
I am an idiot because I a a patriot? Well, if that’s your definition, fine. You are just playing into the left wing’s hands.
The United States is NOT Naxi Germany. No matter how you claim it is, doesn’t make it so. If you think the U.S. needs to be “liberated” by a Normandy invasion, then why don’t you go to Mexico or Russia and join the invasion for that will attack out country? We don’t need traitors here.
I’m back on board! And you’re still an idiot, who deliberately twists & distorts statements by others, for the sole purpose of stirring up conflict & arguing some meaningless point that was never meant or intended to be part of the discussion, except by you. You’re still a troll & and an idiot. Distortion & lies & deflection are what you peddle on this site. I never claimed the US is Nazi Germany, and you’re the only one making that absurd claim. Remember the WWII vet? Even he said you’re then only one making that stupid assertion, and 3 weeks later, you’re still doing it. Go back to DUmmyLand and stay there and let the adults make the salient points.
