I thought it interesting to see the outcry during the initial reports, since the MSM didn't identify them the way they do if the groups are white. The social media was full of "white supremacist militia" reports until later in the day, when the group's identity started leaking and everyone had to backpedal and delete.

Also interesting was that one of the group's spokesmen was adamant that they were not "sovereign citizens". Seems like half the group was identified as "from the Bronx", but they were hanging around MA.

Hitting a pay/login wall but if this is what I think it is they're not new, during the the 60s and 70s various Black nationialist/sovereign groups were quite active. They largely faded, or stopped being front page news, during the 80s and early 90s but seem to have gained a huge boost lately with the dems finding them to be useful in stirring up trouble and pushing left wing causes. BLM and Black Hammer anyone?  Seem like someone at the NYT has rediscovered them.
Of course the MSM/dem narrative will be whenever theses group cause trouble, whatever the MSM can't bury, it will be only be because of white privilege/ supremacy.

Back in the nineties, we had a group called the Moorish Temple here in St. Louis. LOTS of drug dealing. They would all change their names, etc... Stuff like Samuel El Bey, and so on...

I've seen them around for yrs now- they are  always abundant in big blue cities

Our local shithead group is a chapter of the Black Hebrew Israelites. They like to try and pick fights by bowing up on people walking down the sidewalk near whatever prominent public area they pick to street preach on.

If these dumb-dumbs had just locked their weapons in the trunk then they would have made it to Maine without a problem.  I can't even imagine the stupidity of thinking that Massachusetts, of all places, would be okay with open carry of rifles and not result in every cop in a 15-mile radius descending on them.  And if they were trying to provoke a response, why didn't they start shooting?

I can only guess that they had some sort of fantasy of gunning it out with the cops, and folded like a cheap patio chair when faced with reality.

Evidently they ran out of gas on their way to training.

Kind of annoying; Ammo costing what it does nowadays, forgoing a single magazine and putting that into gas money instead could have staved off this entire debacle.

Not really impressed with the foresight of this group's leadership.

That's not quite what happened. They brought enough gas in Jerry cans so they wouldn't have to stop at a gas station en route.

Devonai is right, all they would have had to do was be discreet about it.
Is defenestration possible through the overton window?

I saw some video of these guys in court.  They are nuttier than a wood chipper full of squirrels.

I wonder how many Feds they have among their membership?

From the article Millcreek posted:

Quote
People who claim to be Moorish sovereign citizens believe they are bound mainly by maritime law, not the law of the places where they live, said Mellie Ligon, a lawyer and author of a study of their impact on the judicial system in the Emory International Law Review.

Ok.  Seems reasonable.  We should accept this claim when dealing with them in our homes.  Maritime Law has some rather interesting remedies for piracy.  And since the laws of the US don't apply to them, I'm sure they'll be OK with not involving the US .gov in our little piracy issue.
