The Bundys- It Figures

Not all that surprising or important, but as I like to follow these things, I was very amused this morning to learn from Think Progress that the Bundys have filed legal papers in the criminal case involving their behavior in Oregon, which are a complete garbage pile of Sovereign Citizen gibberish:

“i; ryan c, man, am an idiot of the ‘Legal Society’; and; am an idiot (layman, outsider) of the ‘Bar Association’; and; i am incompetent; and; am not required by any law to be competent; and;,” Bundy wrote in one legal filing submitted Thursday.

“i; ryan c, man, accept no offer of representation, as no man is qualified to represent i; and; i; ryan c, man, will hold any man liable, in his/her private capacity, for any burden, placed upon i, man, by any man, by way of representation of i; and;,” he wrote in another."

For those who may not recognize this sort of talk, it is a classic specimen of one of the more brain-dead forms of Sovereign Citizen nonsense.  Sovereigns regularly besiege the courts with hundreds of pages of this crap, knowing the courts do not have the freedom to just throw it on the dungheap where it belongs.  I'm not even going to begin to explain what it is supposed to mean; click on the link, where Think Progress author Alan Pyke deals with it briefly.  

This is not a harmless eccentricity.  Beyond their use of this nonsense to perpetrate endless financial and property crimes, Sovereigns are the most deadly political terrorists in the country, having been responsible for numerous deaths of police and other government employees; most recently the three Baton Rouge policemen lured into an ambush and killed a couple of weeks ago.

Sovereigns make Trump look like a savant.

Well, that may be because you can only make so much of a fool out of yourself in a 140 character tweet.
