Take the Wheel, Jeebus

The Stupid Coup

It’s all bananas!

These people walk amongst us (emphasis mine):

A Pennsylvania woman who allegedly stormed the Capitol and told a police officer to “bring Nancy Pelosi out here now… we want to hang that fucking bitch” has filed court documents claiming to be a divinely empowered entity immune from laws.

Isn’t that how Xristians always see themselves?

But in what experts describe as an inadvisable legal strategy, Bauer has demanded to represent herself in court, appeared to threaten a court clerk with prison time, and declared herself a “self-governed individual” with special legal privileges.

A sovereign citizen (as we learn later) believes that the gubmint keeps “copies” of citizens and so if you state that you are the “flesh and blood” original, well, you have special rights to claim the pod people. The article is fascinating on this point.

Bauer does not simply appear in court, she clarified during a June 11 proceeding via Zoom. “I am here by special divine appearance, a living soul,” she told a judge that day, while stating that she did not want an attorney.

Sometimes the fool for a client trope really applies.

“I do not stand under the law,” she said. “Under Genesis 1, God gave man dominion over the law.”

Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s, comes to mind. Allegedly said by Jeebus himself, whom I hope is taking the wheel here.

  1. I had a Born-Again Christian husband who thought he was divinely immune from having to be faithful to me. They make up their own rules & then tell themselves that God said it was OK.

    “Homicidal psychotic” is a particularly troublesome combination.

  3. I want the judge to say that if she is immune to laws, he will ask for a simple test; let her prove that she is immune to the Law of Gravity, and she will be free to go.

      Wait and see what happens if that she is divinely inspired to have her call up her gawd for a witness.

    She’s knowingly setting up an insanity excuse for appealing a slam-dunk conviction. Voices are telling her it’s the only way out.

    It was mentioned earlier that antivaxers used to be on the fringe. Let us hope that the Sovereign Citizens remain on the fringe since they are definitely cray-cray.

    Someone should tell her she needs to join the UAW to pick cherries like that.

    Train wreck (trane – rek) Noun 1 – an event that is horrifying but you cannot look away. 2 – People who inspire this attitude in others. Examples include Q-Anon believers, Sovereign citizen cultists, and this Bauer person.
