This weeks Web Site Pick is "Minutemen Unvarnished" a site sponsored by the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation’s Border Project, which monitors day labor sites in San Diego County.
Minutemen Unvarnished tracks the activities of the San Diego Minutemen as they harass and threaten day laborers, employers, and Latinos in general, at various locations throughout the region. They video the minutemen in action and present them uncensored in all their racist glory.
The San Diego Minutemen (SDMM) and related groups are targeting day laborer hiring sites--and the laborers themselves--throughout San Diego County, chasing away potential employers in what they claim is simply a campaign to secure our borders.
SDMM's public line is that they stage protests at the sites to discourage the hiring of "illegal slave labor." However, among themselves, they make it clear that their target is Latino day laborers, period... legal or illegal.
In the videos presented here, SDMM members and supporters speak and act for themselves. You be the judge.
Here's a sample of what the folks from "Minutemen Unvarnished" deal with daily:
