    Different debate. True, but a different debate.

    You compare apples and oranges, at least in my mind.

    A "liberal", in my mind, is someone who ascribes to the overall mindset described as liberal.

    A Minuteman, in my mind, is someone who is a member of a group describing themselves as "minutemen".

    Thus, in my mind, she is a minuteman. Perhaps not one of the members of the far less right-wing minutemen, but still a minuteman member of a group called minutemen.

    So by your logic the Knight of Columbus and the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan would be all affiliated because they share the word "knights" in their titles.

    I realized that such a conclusion could be reached from my un-edited post.

    Thus, I edited it to say this:

    Thus, in my mind, she is a minuteman. Perhaps not one of the members of the far less right-wing minutemen, but still a minuteman member of a group called minutemen.
    And in answer to your question, no, that is not what I meant.

    Edit: As pervious posts in this thread authored by myself would indicate.

    Yes, cheap and sleazy smears of any sort are acceptable to many, there's no doubt. Unfortunately, such little 'misdirections' eventually backfire and have consequences far worse than intended by those who think they have a special dispensation to mislead and slander groups they don't like, usually for shallow reasons.

    See backlash against Carrie Prejean for minor examples; it isn't going to go well for the sleazebags howling for her blood for daring to have a opinion a bunch of trash doesn't like.

    The crazies/sociapaths are in the minority no matter where they go.. They are so "out there" that most groups don't want them, but often enough, the groups don't know right away how bad the crazies are.
    To label these nuts as right wingers, or left wingers, is wrong. They don't represent ANY group, they are crazies who just attach themselves to a group.

    Re: Minuteman leader arrested for double homicide

    The "Minutemen" claim no connection to her group, yet have put her words of condolence on their site. They also call her organization an "independent patriot organization".

    Jim Gilchrist's Minuteman Project, Inc. [dba The Minuteman Project, Inc.] extends its condolences to the victims of a reported violent crime in Arizona. It has been tentatively reported that Shawna Forde, the leader of Minuteman American Defense, an immigration reform group that conducts border operations in Arizona, is being questioned regarding her possible involvement at a crime scene which resulted in a tragic lose of life.



    Our condolences are extended to all those who have been affected by the alleged incident. The Minuteman Project has not received any substantive facts regarding the reported incident, but is seeking additional information at this time.


    Jim Gilchrist's Minuteman Project, Inc. is not affiliated with the Minuteman American Defense or Shawna Forde. The Minuteman American Defense is an independent patriot organization which participates in systematic border observation and reporting operations.
    Welcome to Jim Gilchrist's Minuteman Project

    I love how they distance themselves from the patriots.....
