Lunacy is apparently breaking out on the Texas border.
Apparently around 10 “teams” of these clowns who like to call themselves members of “organized militias” (when in reality all they are is a bunch of guys who couldn’t outgrow playing with their G.I. Joe’s) have been “patrolling” along the Texas border looking for illegal immigrants. All this despite the fact that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has issued a statement saying they don’t “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.”
To get an idea of just what kind of people we’re dealing with here, just look at the comments made by Chris Davis, the “commander” of Operation Secure Our Border: Laredo Sector, in a 21 minute video that has since been deleted. In part, he proudly instructs, “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.'”
For the record, that’s a “commander” of one group admitting that he has threatened to murder illegal immigrants if they don’t listen to him. Someone with absolutely zero legal authority to handle illegal immigration, let alone to threaten to use deadly force for a crime that isn’t punishable by death.
Oh, and according to the San Antonio Express-News, Davis was discharged from the military “under other than honorable conditions in lieu of trial by court-martial.” Though they don’t specify the exact reason he was discharged.
But to further show just how ridiculous these Rambo-wannabes are, the Express-News published around 30 images of these individuals. And – they look exactly as comical as what you might expect.
I mean just take a look at this guy:
He’s wearing all black “tactical gear” during daylight, with sand colored boots. So I guess it’s okay that he sticks out like a sore thumb, just as long as his boots blend in with the terrain. And that mask. That stupid, idiotic mask. This guy defines the term “assclown.”
But not only do they look absolutely ridiculous, check out the names of these “militia groups”:
Bolinas Border Patrol, Central Valley Militia, Independent Citizens Militia, Alpha Team, Bravo Team, FOB Harmony, Operation Secure Our Border: Laredo Sector, O’Shanessy’s Team, the 77’s and Camp Geronimo.
I can’t tell if those are supposed to be names of various “militias” or if they’re the team names of a 10-team fantasy football league comprised of 14-year-olds obsessed with the video game Call of Duty.
This is the thing that cracks me up about these “militias.” These morons have absolutely no authority to enforce any laws. Can they locate, round up and bring these immigrants to the proper officials? Sure. But a random group of people can’t simply call themselves a militia, head down to a border, then start enforcing their own rules and methods for enforcing them.
Honestly, what’s the difference between these individuals and some kind of rogue vigilante?
Though let me address one of the elephants in the room and ask, “Do these people not have jobs?” How do they find so much time to not work while they’re out playing army dress up with their other gun nut friends?
These people aren’t “proud patriotic Americans defending this nation,” they’re idiots – period. They’re the kind of guys who think they know how to fight because they watch UFC pay-per-views.
But let’s be honest, these people aren’t part of any “militia.” They’re just gun nuts who happen to know one another, hanging out on the border, apparently threatening to murder immigrants who are coming here illegally.
I just can’t fathom how anyone can take these people seriously. Again, just look at these clowns:
