Slanderous NBC Minuteman portrayal dishonors Law and Order Patriots!

 "Minutemen... are placed by Providence in the post of honor, … it is the post of danger...  The eyes … of North America … are upon you.  Let us therefore, be altogether solicitous that no disorderly behavior, nothing unbecoming our characters as Americans, as citizens … , be justly chargeable to us." -- The Provincial Congress of Massachusetts 1774

PARTIAL VICTORY CLAIMED, BUT MINUTEMEN OUTRAGED BY LAW & ORDER ‘NEW YORK MINUTE’ PROMOTION & BROADCAST

NBC’S SLANDERS MINUTEMEN
AS MASS MURDERERS

Minuteman email:

… someone called me before the show and said that in a Channel 12 promo, which did a story after Law and Order, they saw me standing there talking to someone.....that means, I, as well as every other recognizable Minuteman/woman, is now a target..... That was a pretty crappy thing for Law & Order to do as far as I am concerned. Pheonix, AZ

TOMBSTONE, AZ (November 17, 2005) – As a result of the outcry by Minuteman volunteers and their supporters nationwide, the National Broadcasting Company (“NBC”) removed the name “Minutemen” from its on-air promotion yesterday of the Law & Order episode, “New York Minute.”

While this represents a partial victory over NBC’s abuse of the good name of the Minutemen, it does not mitigate the harm done to the Minutemen nor the danger to them by NBC’s attempt to ‘enrage America’ at the Minutemen.

NBC chose to endanger lives for profit!

NBC dropped the name “Minutemen” from its on-air promotion demonstrates that the network recognized it had a severe problem on its hands.

Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, Inc. (“MCDC”), issued the following statement denouncing NBC for its slanderous promotion of the Law & Order episode last night that smeared the Minutemen as thugs and mass murderers:

“We endeavored in good faith to contact NBC regarding our concerns about the promotion and broadcast of the ‘New York Minute’ episode of Law & Order that aired last night. Unfortunately, NBC refused to respond to our numerous attempts to contact them and aired the episode.

“NBC repeatedly broadcast promotions for the episode that stated ‘was it murder or Minutemen protecting our borders?” Last night just hours before the broadcast, the NBC Web site for Law & Order displayed the text, ‘Cold-blooded murder or Minutemen vigilantes on the U.S. border?’

“Even though the episode itself used the name ‘Countrymen’ for the border watch group instead of ‘Minutemen’ as advertised, damage had already been done to the Minutemen by NBC’s incessant naming of the ‘Minutemen’ in its promotion and campaign to entice and inflame the public leading up to the broadcast.

“We held out hope that the episode would end with a plot twist that reflected the truth: that it is smugglers who threaten, kidnap and murder their human cargo. However, NBC portrayed the group advertised as the Minutemen, in real life a group of civilian volunteers with an unblemished record of non-violence, as gunning down a human trafficker, attempting to kidnap at knifepoint an illegal alien and of literally cooking to death a dozen illegal aliens in a cargo truck.

“NBC promised the episode would ‘enrage America.’ Because of that provocative statement and the false light in which NBC portrayed the Minutemen, members of our group have reason to fear acts of violent retribution against them and their families by enraged Americans and others who believe that Law & Order stories are ‘ripped from today’s headlines.’

“NBC has acted with reckless disregard for the truth in an effort to harm the Minutemen by its promotion and broadcast of the Law & Order episode, ‘New York Minute.’ That NBC did this during November sweeps when the network tries to maximize ratings so as to line its pockets with increased advertising dollars makes this slander of the Minutemen even more despicable.”

The sister organizations Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, Inc., and the Minuteman Project, Inc., are recognized nationally as the founders and leaders of the civilian border watch and day labor site observation movement. The names “Minutemen” and “Minuteman” are regularly used by the public and the media to describe our organizations and our members.

The Minutemen have rescued hundreds of men, women and children who have been abandoned to die in the desert wilderness by their human traffickers.

By intentionally creating an environment of rage and hate and putting the lives of Minutemen all over the country at risk we hold NBC responsible for any and all violence, persecution, brutality, aggression, hostility and “hate crimes” toward Minutemen the promotions incite.

NBC - Stop the escalation hate for profit.

These attempts to defame the Minutemen must be put to an end. Please take a few minutes to call your LOCAL NBC affiliate right now and tell them not to promote hate for profit.

This is a very clear attack. Good men and women must stand up and say NO to the hate. I urge you to fight the good fight. You are being heard and the lawless open border crowd must use fabricated stories to incite hate.

Thank you.
