Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

Are The Minutemen Coming To Town?

By Greg L | 25 January 2007 | Illegal Aliens | 18 Comments

I’ve gotten a few questions about the Virginia Minutemen, and I’m wondering whether folks in Manassas and Prince William County would be interested in setting up a meeting with them. If I set something like this up, would any readers want to be there?

I think it might be a great idea to see what the options are. The idea of citizens taking a personal stake in the quality of their communities has a distinct appeal to me, and aside from some of the rhetoric I hear from liberals about this group, I’m pretty impressed with what the minutemen have done.

    I would be interested as well as my family who all moved away because of this issue. I never could understand why the minutemen hadn’t already made the park a target of theirs. The problem is much worse here than it ever was in herndon, at least from a numbers standpoint. City government would not be happy about these guys sniffing around their front door because then they would be forced to confront the issue and admit publicly that maybe there is a problem after all. My main concern is whether or not the meeting would be safe from liberal activists and illegal supporters.

    I think we can take a few steps to help in that regard.

    Absolutely!!

    I’m amazed at the underwhelming response so far on this.

    C’mon people. If we sit around waiting for someone else to do it, it ain’t gonna happen.

    Be part of the solution — not part of the problem!

    I’ve read quiet a bit on the Minutemen and from what I have read they are a group of people that want to have America’s immigration laws enforced, are not violent, and expose the radical groups that call for amnesty for illegal aliens.

    This group, even though they have been called racists, bigots and much worse, only want to have our borders and laws enforced.

    Having a meeting with the Minutemen, bringing citizens together to get ideas on what we can do to help with the overcrowding situation in the area seems like a good idea to me.

    Remember, the Dem’s are the majority in the house, and a lot of them are going to push for amnesty for the millions of illegals that are in our country already.

    For those of us that want to find a solution to our City’s problems, this is one step we all should take.

    Go for it Greg.

    Count me in. I even have a few friends and family members who would attend as well.

    And the President is a REPUBLICAN and what has he
    DONE on the issue of chronic illegal
    immigration? The national leadership of the Dems and
    GOP have BOTH failed the American people on this matter.

    Yes Big Dog, i think most of us get your repeated point on WHOSE responsibility it is to deal with the matter.

    HOWEVER — I hope you are not suggesting that if a neighbor’s house is burning down, we are all to sit on our hands and wait for the respective authorities to deal with the problem??

    I truly am beginning to wonder if the old stereotype of the New York urban jungle isn’t alive and well in this area. Might go a long way to explaining why Manassas was ripe for the plundering, this seeming pervasive attitude of, “it’s no my job, man?”

    OK, what specific things would you have Manassas do
    that it isn’t doing AND would have at least 51-49
    chance of holding up in court and not costing tax payers
    millions and leaving the city in a worst spot than it is
    now? Request you be specific and give an example
    of where it is working (we all have Google). Who
    has done more than Manassas - not pandered or
    pondered - but enacted ordiances that have stood up
    in court? There are thousands of units of local
    government - certainly you can find something, right?

    I’m mad as hell too, but the city hall’s of American
    legally only have aspirin available when, what we
    need is major surgery by the FEDERAL government.
    (City and county leaders should do all they can, but
    their powers are much more limited than some
    apparently think. Refer you Greg’s posting on
    the city’s legal challenges.)

    And, oh, what is Republican President Bush’s plan
    and how and when will it help Manassas? Curious.

    There is plenty of blame to go around for this problem not being fixed. From the President to Congressmen of both Parties there seems to be a real disconnect from the problem. Unfortunately, Bush will push his amnesty plan with plenty of help from the Dems. He will then use the plan as an example of bi-partisanship.

    ( Do you remember a wonderful
    movie called “The Mouse that Roared” about a tiny
    country that declared war on the US for the sole purpose
    of getting rebuilt at American expense - only to find themselves
    winning due to US lack of attention and ineptness.)

    So,my proposal is for the City of Manassas to secede from
    the Union - we haven’t done it recently - and it might
    solve several problems.
    - Before anybody really pays much attention, we
    could deport all illegal aliens - “Operation Adios”.
    - Even Bush might be smart enough to invade us
    with Manassas natives - flying them back PDQ from
    the mideast - and this time, they really would be met
    with a warm welcome - flowers, hugs and tears of joy.
    - Bush could declare a legit victory over “insurgents”-
    and even strut around the Harris Pavillion in a flight
    jacket if he wants -go for it - great photo -op.
    - And, oh yes, the millions for rebuilding. Just send the
    check to city hall.

    I remember that movie well…great Peter Sellers piece. Think that the City might have to fire a cannon shot over the Armory to get things rolling? Is that cannon still sitting in front of the old courthouse?

    We have our own cannons - in front of the museum - and
    some neat rifles, swords, etc. inside - plus a good
    rally point at Mayfield Fort.* This is sounding better and
    better. And, of course, the Minutemen will help!

    *(The Historic Resources Board is going to have a hissy,
    but darn, that is the cost of war)

    I am absolutely for supporting a public movement to include association with the Minuteman movement. It’s about time Manassas.
    We need more positive input here, keep the negative stuff at home please.

    “And, oh, what is Republican President Bush’s plan”

    It involves a Hispanic majority putting George P. Bush into office.

    Anon, You are correct. Since his(George P.) mother is a hispanic from Mexico. So, while the current Bush has no problems in upholding the rule of law when it comes to border patrol agents, he seems to not have the spine to speak up to his extended family members who have flooded our Nation.

    Bush should not be impeached over the Iraq war, rather his refusal to protect our Nation from the invasion of illegals is what he needs to be impeached over.

    Big Dog: My point is don’t put all your eggs in one basket. When we all stop and wait for government at any level to take care of us, handle the situation, etc. — while WE as citizens do nothing, then it’s game over.

    Many Manassas citizens have take the time to show up at council meetings. Why not take it one step further and organize in our neighborhoods? Why not take advantage of the original suggestion and meet with the Virginia Minutemen?

    Or do we expect Jackson Miller to carry the ball by himself?

    We need a multi-pronged attack plan. And that requires PERSONAL involvment and commitment beyond just sitting back and yelling at government to solve the problem.

    Look to Herndon and Loudoun — folks there had ENUF of the political slackards, fired the entire council and got people in there who took the issue seriously. AND the Minutemen came to town as well….

    Let’s roll.

    Please read some of the stories on the Minutemen website about what is happening to our country.

    Attend meetings with your neighbors here in Manassas.
    Listen to George Taplin speak on this subject.
    You be the judge.
