Opposition's Choice of Symbol Revealing
-- Those who gathered to protest the Minuteman Project in Tombstone
Arizona chose to highlight a group of Aztecs dancers in the center
of the controversy. Dancing for hours in front of Schiefflin
Hall where the Minutemen gathered to register, the Aztecs
pounded on drums while their supporters pounded on tin cans.
"I find it instructive that, once
again, protesters underline the claim that the American Southwest
is really Aztlan, the so-called mythical homeland of the Aztecs,"
said Glenn Spencer of American patrol as he watched the dancers.
Spencer, who authored a video documentary called "Conquest
of Aztlan" said that there is much more to illegal immigration
than people looking for work. "If our government had an
intelligence service worth its salt it would have warned the
president that the United States is being invaded by a hostile
force," Spencer said.
