People who read my blog know I have covered the Sovereign Citizen movement, classified as the most violent terroris movement in the country, for years. Let me briefly outline a few facts about them:
The Sovereign Citizens are essentially an outgrowth of the "Posse Comitatus" movement of the eighties, which eventually morphed into the right wing militias. This was mixed together with another movement I have written about, Christian Identity, which is a virulent and violent form of white racist supremacy. It is ironic that this malignant group has attracted quite a few black adherents in recent years, but there it is.
Sovereign Citizens are filled with anti-government hatred, which has provoked many attacks and murders of police, judges and other government employees over the years, and this guy has provided us with one more example.
Gavin Eugene Long is, in fact, not a left winger or a Black Lives Matter activist; he is a right wing terrorist like Timothy McVeigh or any of the other hate-filled jackasses that have been generated by racist hatred. Of course, the press will never talk about this, so he will remain for decades a tool of the right to spread their lies.
