Minutemen Exposed By Their Own

by Raoul Lowery Contreras (reposted by Leslie) Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2005 at 12:58 AM

James Chase pulls back the curtain on Gilchrist, Simcox, and the Minuteman Project. Reposted from CalNews.com.

November 27, 2005

The media tripped all over itself in a feeding frenzy when it adopted the Minutemen Border watchers as heroes. Leading the way were Fox News Channel, its primetime star, Bill O’Reilly, LA (KFI) Talk hosts "John and Ken," and San Diego’s former mayor, Roger Hedgecock.

Joining the radio and TV talkers were politicians like Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who called the Minutemen "fantastic," California State Senator and prospective congressional candidate, Bill Morrow and myriad little politicians and candidates like State Assemblymen Ray Haynes and Jay LeSeur.

Making these Minutemen-worshipping talkers and politicians look silly are words from the "belly of the beast," from Oceanside, California’s James Chase. He founded the Border Watch Federation (all of the USA) California Border Watch (California State) Formerly California Minutemen and United States Border Patrol Auxiliary.

Chase wrote an e-mail on November 21 to the Minutemen chat room: "I cannot continue in any way, shape or form in a relationship with Minuteman Civil Defense Corps or even Minuteman Project…"

He writes: "James Gilchrist (currently running for Congress in Orange County as the candidate of the racist-founded and based American Independent Party) wanted to skin Chris (Simcox, convicted of federal crimes in Arizona and founder of the border watchers national movement) alive…"

Chase is referring to the fact that Chris Simcox has been speaking around the country raising money for the fight against illegals then brags that his border watchers are all volunteers and bring their own resources to the struggle. Question: Where does the money Simcox raises go?

Chase: "… but then they (Gilchrist and Simcox) went to Washington and picked up the two DC crooks Mary Lewis and Connie Hair and the corruption machine was off and running." Chase and others are very critical of cocktail-party fundraisers who charge for their services and always turn up in political causes that are popular with the conservative white wing.

He continues with damning allegations: "Now Mary (Lewis) is even allowing the Nazi party into the campaign and they refuse to remove Ranch Rescue, Andy Ramirez and Cliff Linquist from their links."

When this writer and others make such observations of the movement being "Nazis," or comically deadly "Ranch Rescue," we are tagged as "the Treason Lobby." They are true American patriots and we are not; we are accused of name-calling, of emotional diatribes that we fall back on when we lose the argument. What will they say of one of their own, Chase?

Andy Ramirez is an unemployed Southern California wannabe politician who has hitched his alleged Mexican American background to such loser enterprises as anti-Mexican and anti-illegal alien California initiatives that have consistently failed to make the ballot. He made grandiose media announcements of thousands of people joining him on the Border. Twenty showed up.

Chase writes: "So you have an absolute CON man Andy (Ramirez) in your ranks sucking many thousands of dollars away from the cause."

More importantly, Chase writes: "You have murderers in your ranks. You have Nazi's, other anti-Jews, and anti-hispanic racists side by side with you. You are whom you run around with. Proud to be a Minuteman now? You may not be so proud in the future."

"I have standards of right, " he writes. In contrast, he continues: "…sending email and letter requests for money to all of our people, even to my grandchildren, sister-in-law, and distance English ex-step mother is just without all Class or regard for civility."

He concludes: "I am sad that some of you are so desperate, so gah gah, over what was a super lightning rod for anti-illegal immigration that you refuse to see that ethics and honesty is above all. May the Lord Open your eyes to see and your nostrils to smell the manure before us."

Need there be any doubt as to the sincerity of this missive, of the accusations? It speaks for itself. Will it be discussed on the "John and Ken" show in Los Angeles, or by Bill O’Reilly, by Fox News, by CNN’s Lou Dobbs, by Governor Arnold, or by San Diego’s KOGO talk show host and anti-illegal alien warrior, Roger Hedgecock, probably not.

If anyone doubts the authenticity of this missive and its views, here is the address Chase posted: James Lewis Chase Headquarters: Border Watch Federation (all of the USA) California Border Watch (California State) Formerly California Minutemen and United States Border Patrol Auxiliary 4225 Oceanside Blvd M182 Oceanside, CA 92056 760 945-5030 James@ChaseLaw.us www.BorderWatch.us
