The Vigilantes that conducted the racist protest in Baldwin Park yesterday are now responding to their unpopularity by posting increasingly violent and racist messages, urging each other to step up actions against Latin American and Mexican people.

After monitoring the Save Our State web site and forum (where members can post to each other), there are some serious concerns arising. Their rhetoric is becoming more racist and violent as the day progresses, with threats of violence to individuals that they believe are illegal. One member calling himself “dalestptbch” has stated that, “[t]he end is near for these illegals. there is going to be Hell to pay.” The problem with their notion of whom is illegal; they consider any congregation of Mexicans or Mexican Americans as probable illegal aliens. They have one part of their site called “Welcome to Mexifornia!” The page says, “Aren't you tired of watching your state turn into a third world cesspool right before your eyes? […] If you would like to submit some pictures depicting the third world shantytown your community is becoming, please feel free.” They then post pictures of Latin American individuals (they do not ask people to verify which country the Latinos are from). Further, if you look at the profile pictures that their members use, you will find them pointing and firing a pistols at the reader, pictures of the Mexican Flag, with a red circle and line through it, artificial border patrol badges, as well as other racist images. The posts that raise the most concern are the ones that a vengeful, violent, and racist. Posts are beginning to sound dangerous, such as one from a person calling himself, “BlackCatsinOntario” stating “But on the other part of my brain, it is purely revenge. I am all shook up and angry and definitely convinced that these MEChA goons are asking for trouble. I don't give a rat's ass if they are juveniles.” They have been conducting multiple harassment style demonstrations at locations where day labors frequent, and now intended to increase their activity. It is hard to predict if the group will start attacking innocent people, but the potential for individual members to begin committing hate crimes is very high. Now is the time for all the activists and various political organizations that attended the counter demonstration to maintain our unity with each other, and rally to the aid of all Latin American people that reside in the United States, as any one of them could be a potential target to these armed vigilantes.
