This is America – Honoring convicted felons on the 4th of July

Not heroes! Not American "Patriots", but your garden variety felons who are being honored on America's birthdayThis is America! Where convicted felons, liars and cowards both are hailed as heroes by those who disguise their xenophobia and bigotry by referring to themselves as “Patriots”!

Former Border Patrol Agents and convicted felons Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean are being honored at a Fourth of July BBQ and parade in Southern California, at Camp Vigilence, owned by the radical extremist group Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.

Security is being provided by the armed extremist group “Border Patrol Auxiliary”!

The events have the endorsement of amongst others, Barbara “Mexican’s are savages” Coe, founder of the hate group CA Coalition for Immigration Reform, who is also an organizer.

Coe, Jeff “Bikini Boy” Schwilk of SDMM and William “Weird Willy” Gheen of ALIPAC, recently shared the stage together at a “Spread the Hate” tour in California earlier this year.

Ramos and Compean were recently given one time permission to attend these events separately by the Federal Parole Office in El Paso.

We’re waiting for a call back from an official at that office who had no idea of the militant nature of these organizations.

We’ve heard this cast of characters recently in relation to the home invasion murder of 9 year old Brisenia Flores and her father Raul, by Shawna Forde, Executive Director of Minutemen American Defense, a border vigilante group with close ties to MCDC, the Minuteman Project and other extremist groups.

So this 4th of July, instead of celebrating the birth of our nation, certain factions will be honoring two convicted criminals, cowards, accused of shooting an unknown, unarmed man in the back, and then lying and covering up the crime!

What kind of lesson does this teach our children?
