And speaking of brownshirts... 

Here's a chilling little item about vigilantes—oh, I'm sorry, independent watchdogs"—on the border:

Intent on securing the vulnerable Arizona border from illegal immigrant crossings, U.S. officials are bracing for what they call a potential new threat this spring: the Minutemen.

Nearly 500 volunteers have already joined the Minuteman Project, anointing themselves civilian border patrol ... [Organizers] believe the Minuteman Project is the largest of its kind on the southern border.

It may also prove to be a magnet for what Glenn Spencer, president of the private American Border Patrol, described as camouflage-wearing, weapons-toting hard-liners who might get a little carried away with their assignments.

Carried away?! Heck, they're just working toward der Fuhrer. They know what He really wants, so they do that without waiting for orders....

"How are they going to keep the nutcases out of there? They can't control that," said [Glenn] Spencer, whose 40-volunteer group, based in Hereford, Ariz., has used unmanned aerial vehicles and other high-tech equipment to track and report the number of border crossings for more than two years.

The answer: They aren't going to keep the nutcases out, and they don't want to.

But the beauty part? AP is quoting Glenn Spencer as if he weren't an MBF, which he is. Orcinus, as usual, has the goods. A classic case of wingers injecting fascist memes into the mainstream.
