(Newser)   A man moved into a vacant $6M mansion and claimed rightful ownership as a Moorish American National. He argued that all of the US really belongs to him because the continent is still part of a Moroccan empire   (newser.com) divider line 83

Americans have their differences -- over politics, over sports, over regional pride -- but we can all come together and stand as one to agree that "Sovereign Citizen" types who play the "Laws apply to you when I want, but not to me when I want" game should be set adrift in a sea of cockpunches.

When you're caught squatting in a $6 million mansion, you are going to be convicted no matter what you say in court.  You might as well have fun with it.

All you have to do to be a Sovereign Citizen is listen to Lady Sovereign.

Well, it's good to see that the "sovereign citizen"/"Freeman-on-the-land" movement has finally embraced diversity. Usually these clowns are whiter than an albino fish's belly.

Any Moroccan's I know, including my husband, will look at him and say BLACK.  He's not Arab and he's not Berber.  He's plainly and simply part of greater Africa's migration into North Africa.  There's nothing Moroccan about him.  Nigerian?  Yes.  Mali?  Yes.  Moroccan?  No.

The planet was owned by a species wiped out in the Cambrian extinction. The fact that they didn't leave a will is really quite irrelevant.

I remember the old maps when there was a "Mo" over the North American continent and "rroco" over that one spot in Northwest Africa.

Then Whitey came along and messed everything up. George Whitey, Myopic Mapmaker to the Stars.

I thought Whitey was the Man. But it turns out the M.A.N. is a Moorish American National.

That argument didn't work for the Moors against the Spanish, certainly won't work against the US...

"This is my land now and I can kill you and your family if you disagree" was established by centuries of precedents in every part of the world. How exactly was it a flimsy argument?

He's not Moroccan. He doesn't claim to be Moroccan. He's "Moorish American" which is a term derived from the Moorish Science Temple. Think Nation of Islam but a little older and a little kookier.

Oh, he's one of those guys.

Sovereign Citizen, that is.

A few S.C. proponents are getting rich selling "emancipation kits" and "legal advice" while a simple Google search reveals that it doesn't work, it never works, and most often turns S.C. followers into inmates.

If I can afford a $6M house that I'm not even living in, and you try to move in and take it, I can afford to have you killed

Could make this problem go away almost instantly - since these "sovereign" locations apparently were seized from  the United States in what would normally be an act of war (territory incursion) - so declare war.
 
2013-09-21 04:51:13 PM  
In fact, Lamont Butler argued-literally so, because he defended himself in court-that all of the US really belongs to him and his Moor peers because the continent is still part of a Moroccan empire and thus our modern leases are meaningless.

I'm guessing he doesn't know that Morocco was the very first country to recognize the United States as an independent nation.

If you can afford a $6M mansion, why no security system?

Well, you know how Americans are - I seen in the news that Joe Six-Pack is finally figuring out that America's foreign policy of sixty years sucks - he just needed to see a black man doing it to realize that it was bad.
