Minuteman -- what's in a name?

By Capt. Fogg

The right-wing trolls have been parading their mock outrage recently about suggestions that the last 8 years have marked a new high ( or low, if you prefer) in Republican hatemongery -- unless, of course they're allowed to blame it either equally or entirely on "Far-Left Liberals," which group is comprised of anyone who criticized George W. Bush's presidency before the economy hit the fan.

Were the doctor murderer and the museum shooter secret FLLs? is the question they're pretending to ask themselves in order to avoid the appearance of complicity, says Majikthise. Of course, yesterday's arrests for home invasion and murder by leaders of one of the "Minuteman" groups who pose as well-regulated militias doing what "the government refuses to do" will have to be integrated into the program of denial and blame passing. It's going to get more and more difficult, I predict, to discuss any question of responsibility.

Shawna Forde, leader of Minutemen America Defense, aptly called MAD, is a graduate of San Diego terrorist Camp Vigilante. She's been arrested along with two other terrorist border patrol volunteer group members for having shot up a Hispanic family in their own home, leaving a father and his nine year old daughter dead. One of the other vigilantes is also a product of a Minuteman training camp, but of course the argument is being steered away from culpability and toward which of several groups get to use the Minuteman name, as the dance of denial and evasion begins.

Of course, by suggesting that the rabid barking about Mexicans from Lou Dobbs on down to the self-appointed defenders of America's borders and undiluted bodily fluids has had any effect on the overall climate of murderous rage amongst the "conservatives," exposes me to accusations of playing the "Blame Game" and being ranked as another Far-Left-Liberal hate-shouter in the false equivalence World Series and probably an America-blaming, crypto-terrorist, Fascist-Marxist follower of the false and foreign-born Messiah Obama as well.

Really, I should just go back to writing about boats before my sense of guilt becomes overwhelming.
