National Minuteman Group Dies

Looks like the bigotmen aka “Minutemen” National group has disbanded.  Via

Border Action Network, an Arizona human rights organization that works on the border is not surprised by the recent news. “There has been a growing disconnect from the national and the local Minutemen chapters,” explains Jennifer Allen, the group’s Executive Director.

The Border Action Network notes the local groups’ increasingly aggressive and hostile membership base. In one incident of alleged aggressive membership behavior, Washington State Minutemen chapter members, Shawna Forde and Jason Bush, are charged with murdering a Latino father and daughter in rural Arivaca, AZ in June 2009. They are expected to go on trial later this year.

“The national was getting absorbed into the political fights with candidates and lobbying while the local groups continue to attract fringe extremists that are attracted to the paramilitary culture and hate groups.”
