US Border: headlines you just can't make up.

Ripped from the Drudge Report, some headlines that have to be seen together for the full effect.

So, now is the time at the Phantom Soapbox when we steal from the best! Let's JUXTAPOSE!

CDC issues Ebola checklist" "Now is the time to prepare."

Texas Sheriff: Reports Warn Of ISIS Terrorist Cells Coming Across The Border

But what's really got the Federal Border Patrol ant hill in a turmoil?

Texas Police Prepare to Defend International Bridges From Militia Groups

Never mind the fatal diseases, the drug cartel killers and the fanatical Mooselimb head choppers.  Those MILITIAS might be coming! Oh, the humanity!

Authorities prepare to use "whatever force is necessary" to defend international bridges between Texas and Mexico from U.S. based militia groups. The preparations by Texas law enforcement agencies are in response to recently discovered plans by militia groups to attempt closing several international bridges. The militia groups' plans are intended to be protests against the federal government's failure to secure the border between the U.S. and Mexico. The plans call for militia groups to begin blocking traffic on an undisclosed number of international bridges in the Rio Grande Valley on Sept. 20th, 2014.

"We will not allow these groups to disrupt the economic commerce of our region and we are prepared to use force to keep the bridges open," said one law enforcement officer who spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity.

White men, showing up to block traffic. Oh noes!!! Call out the Army!

And notice how the media covers it. Here's an example:

Headline 'Safety concerns increasing at the Texas-Mexico border'

The article makes it clear that the concern is the militia members, not the criminals and terrorists flooding across the border. From the article:

"In August, an agent was pursuing a group of immigrants in the Brownsville area when he came across a man holding a rifle. The agent fired shots at the man who was later identified as a militia member. That man was not injured, but agents said this situation could have ended a lot worse. "

Imagine the audacity - he opens fire without checking his target, then when he discovers the guy is a militia member he blames the victim for his own recklessness. At least he was a typical government employee - that is, a bad shot.

If the positions were reversed, the militia member would be sitting in jail waiting for trial and it would have been a part of the 24/7 news cycle for the last month and a half. Breathless 'experts' would be explaining why this incident proves that militia members can't be trusted... yet somehow when the government does it, that's ok.

An unsecured border, terrorist activity on the other side, and one of the world's most lethal (natural) biological weapons sweeping across a continent right now... but militia members trying to stop people from entering illegally are our greatest security threat.

Shakespeare wouldn't have written a farce about that, because it would be too unbelievable.

And he wrote about fairies.

Yeah, the thing with the Border Patrol goof firing on the civilian, that's got layer after layer of bullshit all over it. One layer of which is, how lucky is Mr. Border Patrol that the guy and five friends didn't just lie down and return fire?

It sounds like one of those "DROP YOUR WEAPON!!!!!" orders got screamed at the guy, and he replied back "Why?" Then POWPOWPOW from the cop, because Mr. Cop was having a bad day and is generally an asshole. Lot of that going around.

I would not be shocked to learn that BP has been ordered to fire on White men with guns along the border, and that most of them are just disobeying said order because its illegal. I have no -evidence- that the above is true of course, I'm just saying I wouldn't be shocked if somebody else does.

The real reason for all this anti-militia crap is the administration lives and dies by propaganda, and they know it. If the "militia", aka regular dudes, keep finding the coyote chewed, ant riddled corpses of women and children down there along the border every week, and keep on releasing YouTubes of guys dressed as Osama Bin Laden riding a fucking elephant across the border, pretty soon not even the DemocRat owned Mainstream Media will be able to completely ignore it.

So, they need a boogie man. Militias.

Don't know how that's going to play out when the first Ebola victims start leaking across the Rio Grande. Probably not well, would be my guess.
