Jim Gilchrist one of the founders of the Minutemen Project said hes reaching out across America to recruit at least 3,500 volunteers who will go to the border to patrol and cover the porous areas between San Diego and Brownsville, Texas.
The campaign is called Operation Normandy, and its set for May 1, 2015, Raw Story reported.
If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be, Mr. Gilchrist said, Raw Story reported. However, there is one difference. We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.
Mr. Gilchrist insisted that the campaign should remain peaceful.
His No. 1 rule for participants, as posted on his Minuteman Project website: Whatever you do, stay within the rule of law.(continued)

May 1, 2014 would have been a better date to have started this...
I hate these people already. They are comparing the United States to Nazi Germany, and Mexico to the Allies? Screw them! Do they know how Normandy ended? The invaders won. Screw these anti-American idiots.
Where’s a drone when you need one?
If this Jim Gilchrist think the U.S. is such a evil country why doesn’t he move to Russia pr somewhere else? I hate communist trash like this.
Did you read the article?
If they were comparing us to Nazi-held France, I think they would've used the name "Operation Atlantic Wall".
Do you what Normandy was? That was when the Allies invaded Nazi Germany. So, they are saying the Illegal immigrants are brave liberators and the U.S. are Nazis. Anti-American scum like that makes me sick. You approve?
“We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.
Read his comments again.
Nickcarraway is right, if a little overwrought. Poor choice for a name. I’m not convinced it was an intentional insult tho.
Read your quote. That further indicts him. He isn’t just doing it out of ignorance, he KNOWS what he is doing. Because he is Nazi Germany was not invading anyone at Normandy, they were, “there to stop an invasion.” So he is DIRECTLY comparing the United States and the immigrants to the Allies, which included our U.S. service members. That’s a vile disgusting lie. This needs to be put down. This man should not be able to get away with this.
He should change the name, right?
Then it's doomed from the start.
Maybe I am a little overwrought, but I don’t like my country being compared to Nazi Germany, and I don’t like an organization taking advantage of 24,000 allied troops, including 10,000 casualties, and more than 4,000 dead. They don’t deserve this.
Yes. Someone didn’t think this through at all.
maybe he did get the name wrong, but he seems like one of the “good guys” that we need more of in this country... lots of border info among other info on the MM site
Appreciate the efforts. Maybe the date was typed wrong..surely they meant August, 2014.
They are good guys don’t worry. Numerous complaints were broadcasted in the local media outlets at the border because these guys were actually helping to deter the illegals from crossing the border and into San Diego County. As you all know, when the MSM tries to demonize a group, you KNOW they are FOR THE CONSTITUTION.
1954 Miles. We will be spread kind of thin.
