Some friends of everyone's favorite deadbeat rancher Cliven Bundy are raising hell again, according to San Antonio Express-News. Citizen militias in Texas under the names Patriots, Oathkeepers and Three Percenters, some of which helped “defend” the Bundy ranch, are swearing they will now take it upon themselves to secure the United States-Mexico border.
They are doing so because of “God, Country, our Constitution and ALL our Bill of Rights as written by our Founding Fathers,” according to their Facebook page. Perhaps they’re hoping to line themselves up with the ideals of John Adams’ Alien and Sedition Acts.
The citizen militias are seeking out armed volunteers to line up at the United State-Mexico border with them for “Operation Secure Our Border.” The operation will supposedly consist of the armed volunteers giving spotted immigrants water and food while they wait for ICE and Border Patrol to pick them up. A video surfaced by McAllen Monitor, however, shows the commander of the movement, Chris Davis, saying things like, “You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, 'Get back across the border or you will be shot.'"
Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) is still trying to wear his “smart glasses” to make it seem like he has an iota of an idea of what’s going on in the world, but he claims the high amount of immigrants is a conspiracy orchestrated by President Obama.
These roving citizen militias will cause more violence and discord. One would hope that this entire plan will never come to fruition, but they’re planning to make it happen in the next few weeks.
The aforementioned Oath Keepers have previously called for police in New York to join a revolution against “socialist tyranny,” and believe that they don’t have to obey any gun laws. As noble as it can be to protest the government, these guys are a bunch of frothy-mouthed agitators and we should be praying for the immigrants who will encounter them.
Then again, according the border vigilantes, it's god who's on their side.
