Hayes/Minuteman Rally Is A Flop

by John Q. Public Monday, Jun. 25, 2007 at 10:11 PM

Rally permit expired. Infighting among Minutemen. Ego battles take place for control. Rally is abandoned by Minutemen as Hayes and four others are arrested.

Hayes/Minuteman Rall...
leimertpark2007aa.jpg, image/jpeg, 590x430

JUNE 23, 2007, LEIMERT PARK -- Ex-Minuteman and ex-homeless advocate Ted Hayes led an "anti-illegal immigration" march/rally in the heart of the Crenshaw/Leimert Park community. The march took place, but the rally never happened. Members of the Minuteman Project and supporters of "Choose Black America" marched from the Baldwin Hills shopping center to the street adjacent to Leimert Park. The march was an attempt to recruit Black members to assist in the Minuteman Project.

Prior to the march, Hayes denounced "Black-Brown unity". In turn, members of the Crenshaw/Leimert Park community denounced Hayes and his support of the Minuteman Project.
See video on community response to Hayes' comments:
http://media.putfile.com/Minuteman-Rally-Leimert-Park-2007


Meanwhile at Leimert Park, LAPD officers in riot gear and over 300 counter-protesters waited for the Minuteman marchers to arrive. LAPD refused to allow the marchers to proceed into the park, citing that they were concerned for the security of both the marchers and counter-protesters across the street. Despite over two hours of repeated promises --made by Ted Hayes-- to march into the park against police orders, the rally permit expired and the event was declared an unlawful assembly. The march into the park never took place, with Hayes and four others arrested by LAPD for the unlawful assembly.

Several members of the Minutemen expressed anger toward Hayes for promising a dramatic show of civil disobedience, but failing to follow through with it. One attendee -- who will only be described as "Roswell"-- exclaimed that "Ted Hayes blew it. This was his chance. He's finished." Another Minuteman -- who will be described as "Desert Storm"-- threw his hand in Hayes' face and said "All this just to end up Politically Correct?!" Other Minuteman supporters began to argue with Hayes and with each other.
See video of Minuteman infighting:
http://media.putfile.com/Minuteman-infighting-Leimert-Park-2007

Ego and tempers flared between Hayes and Frank Jorge ("Latino Against Illegal Immigration") during a television interview.
See video of ego fight between Hayes and Jorge, as the television cameras are rolling:
http://media.putfile.com/Ted-Hayes-Frank-Jorge-ego-fight

At one point, an enraged Frank Jorge grabbed a megaphone and threatened the counter-protesters across the street. "If these policemen go away, I will cross that street and I will get it out with you, because you are pieces of s**t!"
See video of threat by Frank Jorge:
http://media.putfile.com/Frank-Jorge-threat-Leimert-Park-2007

As the hours passed, and as Hayes continued to delay for more time to march into the park, his own members began to desert him. The march/rally was a disaster in many ways for Hayes. The local community was able to stand off the Minuteman/Hayes group, and infighting and calls for "Slave Reparations" offended many of the Minutemen in attendance (who muttered their disapproval unknowingly in front of this reporter.).

None of the Minutemen members were arrested.
