Right wing militia are today’s Nazi brown shirts.
A militia group is calling on supporters to patrol the Texas-Mexico border to guard against drug gangs and illegal immigrants.
A spokeswoman for the militia group told the Brownsville Herald that members would not engage in violence, and the group’s leader – who calls himself Commander Chris “Threepercenter” Davis – has cautioned against violent actions or racist comments.
But a 21-minute video that was apparently posted June 14 by Davis encourages militia members to threaten suspected illegal immigrants to secure the border.
“You see an illegal,” Davis says in the video. “You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’”
He also urged militia members to “start the next 1776 right there on the border” if they were confronted by law enforcement authorities.
