County Council has been off this week, taking a breather from zoning ordinances, variance requests, and the usual county business.
But next week is going to get wild. Sheriff Woody, also known as Jeff Christopher, is bringing in former sheriff Richard Mack to lecture the county council on the duties of the sheriff. In his spare time, Mack is challenging Rep. Lamar Smith (TX) in the GOP primary next month.
Mack is a member of the Oath Keepers. You remember them, don’t you? They’re the ones who believe that the members of our armed forces don’t have to obey orders from President Obama because they don’t believe he’s the legitimate Commander in Chief.
Mother Jones did a fantastic article on this
terrorist patriot wingnut group in March 2010.
Founded last April by Yale-educated lawyer and ex-Ron Paul aide Stewart Rhodes, the group has established itself as a hub in the sprawling anti-Obama movement that includes Tea Partiers, Birthers, and 912ers. Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, and Pat Buchanan have all sung its praises, and in December, a grassroots summit it helped organize drew such prominent guests as representatives Phil Gingrey and Paul Broun, both Georgia Republicans.
So now Sheriff Woody, St. Bodie Girl, and the other crazies that are now in control of the Sussex GOP are bringing so-called patriot in to tell County Council that they are violating the law and that they better watch out.
If you have some time next Tuesday, come on down to 2 The Circle to watch the circus. I’ll have the popcorn stand.
