Subject: BULLETIN! Reinforcements needed in Campo, Ca.
Reinforcements are needed in Campo, Ca. immediately to support Jim Chase's California Minutemen, who have deployed for border observation and reporting activities from July 16 through at least August 7 (and beyond).
I visited Jim Chase's group, accompanied with a California state senator and his aides, last Saturday. We witnessed the literal seige of VFW Post #2080 by about 60 belligerant, death-threatening anti-Americans twice during that day. The hate-spewing members of the racist, American-hating organization known as the Mexican brown berets, stormed the VFW Lodge, damaging signs and other property. They were eventually repelled by the late-arriving San Diego County Sheriff's Dept. No arrests were made.
The California state senator and his aides took serious note of the hostilities and violence conducted by the Nazi-like, anarchist brown berets. Americans...these goons are incurably evil and have a history of routinely suppressing the First Amendment rights of Americans through acts of violence and threats of death.
Our First Amendment rights of freedom to peacefully assemble and speak are in serious jeopardy, and it is time a stand is taken to preserve these rights.
The rampage was orchestrated by Armando Navarro, a known anti-American racist, who holds a comfortable, taxpayer funded, tenured position as a professor (of hate and blood-letting?) at the University of California - Riverside, Ca., and who has devoted his life to promoting the Mexican conquest of the seven southwestern US states. He calls for the conquest to be carried out by force, if necessary. Navarro, and his minions whose combined IQ was that of a dead house plant, all appeared to be under the influence of drugs.
One California Minuteman volunteer, Jim Woods, was physically assaulted by a gang of ten of Navarro's thugs as he sat in his car alone at a border outpost. He was physically restrained in his car seat by the brown berets, who threatened to kill him. They stole his keys from the ignition and left him stranded without food or water for several hours. When Jim Woods identified two of the gang members to the Sheriff's Dept. and asked for an arrest, no action was taken by the Sheriff's deputies. One deputy just responded to Mr. Wood's plea for help with "Oh, you just lost your keys," despite repeated pleas to the contrary from Mr. Woods.
I am returning to Campo this week. Volunteers from anywhere in the United States are welcome to join me as soon as possible. Two minuteman groups from Texas have already committed to arrive this week. I am also requesting reinforcements from Chris Simcox's Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in Tombstone, Az. and from select members of another well-known California border watch group that operates independently from The Minuteman Project.
Navarro's anarchist's attempted to shut down, and trash, the VFW lodge because the lodge allowed thirsty and hungry California Minutemen volunteers to purchase food and water from its restaurant. Their attempts to bring down the U.S. flag were thwarted by Jim Chase's California Minutemen.
Our goals here are twofold:
1. Protect the rights of ALL Americans to freely and peacefully assemble without being physically assaulted, or threatened with violence to maim or kill them by the mindless minions of the Univ. of California's "Professor of Hate", Armando Navarro.
2. Protect America's war veterans at VFW Lodge 2080, in Campo, Ca. from being battered by literal thugs with clubs and to protect the property of that lodge from being destroyed.
3. Simultaneously, volunteers are forming to protest at the Univ. of Ca. - Riverside, demanding the ouster of Navarro from his department at a state funded institution, which Navarro has selfishly turned into a department of tyranny.
The VFW lodge address is 301 Sheridan in Campo, Ca.
Be warned that the roving gangs of adversaries engaging the California Minutemen WILL physically attack you if they outnumber you. I repeat, they WILL physically attack you. Stay in groups, and stay LEGALLY armed with pepper spray...tasers...etc. Sidearms are legal in certain areas in Campo. Confer with Jim Chase on the issue of sidearms. I am remaining unarmed, but will have legally armed body guards with me while I am in Campo.
Remember, remain passive. However, that does not mean you cannot defend yourself against threats to your safety by incoherrent mobs of gangsters who are determined to do you physical harm.
It truly is a sad day in America when the First Amendment rights are preserved only for those who carry the biggest stick. The alternative is to remain a cringing little mouse and forever relinquish your unalienable rights to peacefully speak or assemble.
Good Luck, Americans. May God, patriotism, and country be with you. See you in Campo.

I'm still amazed by the fact that there are people like this out there. "appeared to be on drugs"? The guy is making assumptions and drawing comparisons between those who are protesting the treatment of Mexicans crossing into the US and the nazis. I'm not really seeing where there's a connection.
He's lying. That's really all there is to it.
The left activists, from reports on both sides, engaged in noisemaking disruption. The right activists responded with verbal "warnings" that they would use violence.
The left activists were not on drugs. That's just a common accusation that the opponents have always used against the left. Drugs, drink, sex, smelly, etc. Basically, they like to call us "dirtbags" in some way or other. This is said, partly, because among our numbers are a lot of intelliegent and educated people, entrepreneurs, politically connected people, and community volunteers. On average, we're exemplary individuals with good track records, hard workers, and, generally speaking, are community leaders.
When leftists aren't obviously disheveled, we get called "elitists" and "limo liberals." In fact, many of us are working class intellectuals -- we're often the smart kids and good students from the mediocre and crappy schools who turned our backs on the corporate world. If not that, we're the people who turned our lives around despite the system programming us for failure. And, some of us *are* dirtbags, but have gotten our act together, and are looking to get to the next level -- opposing extremist groups is just a way to exorcise our demons of hate and intolerance.
Thank goodness that the minutemen are out there! I'm so glad that none of them were hurt badly and wish them the best!
I would have had no idea how bad the brown berets really were if you hadn't posted this... Thanks!
I was there. Everything was as reported. Women were even physically attacked by these assholes.
yall are lying this didnt happen , were here to get the rights we deserve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
