HUCKABEE ACCEPTS ENDORSEMENT OF CONTROVERSIAL MINUTEMEN FOUNDER

Rate this Entry

If you want to throw red meat to the antis, there's no better way to do it than accepting the endorsement of Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the Minuteman Project, the vigilante group that has taken to patrolling the border. Gilchrist has been ousted as the head of the Minutemen over sordid accusations of financial improprieties, not his views, but apparently Mike Huckabee thinks it's important to have his blessing.



Gilchrist appears to be a lovely person. The Southern Poverty Law Center, one of the country's leading civil rights organizations known for its monitoring of hate groups around the US, has reported on the Minutemen links to white supremacist groups.



He also seems to have some pretty interesting views on how to fight illegal immigration:

"I'm not going to promote insurrection, but if it happens, it will be
on the conscience of the members of Congress who are doing this," he
said. "I will not promote violence in resolving this, but I will not
stop others who might pursue that."

So much for the compassionate Mike Huckabee. But I guess he has to deal with that iffy rating from NumbersUSA.

    SPLC has also made a determination (yesterday) that FAIR is a hate group and has links to racist organizations

    Also the DNC/Howard Dean finally stand up to the Pubs. Point out that "illegals" is not a noun:

    Terrible I never thought this cadidate would want his name and campaign associated with these people. But I guess anything to please the extremist in the republican party to try to lock down the nomination or out do Tancredo.

    Whatever... If Huckabee gets the nomination, it will be easier for Hillary or Obama to win the whole thing.
