Hello Americans !

We are both working from home at the moment, and to be honest, we're just sitting at our work laptops, waiting for a support call to come in. This has given us a vast amount of time to wander the internet looking for entertainment.

I stumbled across "sovereign citizens" on YouTube, and to be honest, I'm fascinated.

I certainly don't think that all / most / many Americans think like these fuckwits, but I am genuinely curious:
The YouTube videos all seem to show the same 50-60 idiots - are they the only ones, or do other folk also hold to these beliefs?
If so, how many? (ish)
(For what it's worth, I also found a UK version of a sovereign citizen, so I am not stereotyping on national grounds)

They are a very, very, small minority.

And most of them aren't actually in trouble with the law, or even go on the interenet.

Most of them don't even know how to work a phone, let alone a computer.

But there are plenty of dumb asses of equal quality in the internet... True.

Ooooh!

A new search-string.

(I understand both the word "incel" and the word "terrorist", but will now search for these in conjunction. Thanks)
