A Weekend With The Patriots Outside A Home Depot

"Obamie is a comma commie" says the fine print, for some reason.
Britney Jackson was just headed to the Home Depot near Gulfgate this past weekend, looking to repair a fence.

She walked into a border war.

The stalwart members of some group had gathered there, presumably since some brown-skinned people sometimes hang out at Home Depots looking for work to feed their families.

Jackson, who has been active in civil-justice causes, tells Hair Balls she quickly grabbed her camera:
 
I guess they totally don't realize I've looked into the eyes of klan wizards and been on death row (not for a crime), so threatening me in their most white trashish sort of way, then scattering like roaches to hide the guns they were so proud to strap when I said the phrase "DOJ" cracked me up.

In fact, it amused me so much that when these yahoos were yelling "Nazis, Nazis, Nazis" at a bunch [of] day laborers and whitey me, so the crowd followed me in an impromptu pointing and yelling at the minutemen "Osama Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden."
It all sounds very confusing. But the pictures tell the tale:

Ways not to win a debate on immigration: Sport the confederate flag.

Heart-warming, indeed. Almost as stirring as the Iwo Jima flag-raising.

Jackson labeled her photo collection "Home Depot Minutemen hate Mexicans, Nazis and Jenny Craig." For some reason.
