The Minutemen

Came through B'ham Tuesday on a national tour protesting against illegal immigrants. They sure sound like a rational group, and not at all motivated by racial animus:

Some of the rhetoric was similar to speeches delivered at a Ku Klux Klan rally held in northwest Alabama over the weekend. Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist drew some of his loudest applause with criticism of civil rights attorney Morris Dees of Montgomery, who also was mentioned during the Klan demonstration.

Dees, whose Southern Poverty Law Center has been critical of the Minutemen, is a "disgusting example of humanity," said Gilchrist. "Go to the Southern Poverty Law Center Web site and you will meet Satan," he said.

If you want to meet Satan, here he is. (Or go here for a bit more objective view). For more on the Klan rally, go here.
