Jim Campbell, someone who clearly does not understand immigration control, did something really stupid: he gave $100,000 to Chris Simcox of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (ie he basically threw the money up in the air and yelled Whoopee!!) with the expectation that they’d use it to build an ‘Israeli-style’ barrier across someone else’s private land. Well, suffice to say, what was built was basically cattle fencing that a six-year-old could get over – ie Mr. Campbell got punkd.
It’s endlessly amusing to me how people with more money than sense rush out to shower money on wingnut whackjobs, but won’t raise a finger to do the right thing.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, money does not equal class or brains. A lot of well-to-do folks I’ve met in my life got that way by being vicious, unprincipled, ruthless and heartless. Every time I see one of these rednecked stoneheads getting spanked publicly it gives me a little hope that we’re evolving as a species.
