Oh man, this made my day.
So in Germany, we’ve recently had a spate of people acting under the header of “Reichsburger”. Think something of an analogue to “Sovereign Citizen” or “Freeman of the land” types, who believe (for utterly demented reasons - and yes, you can bet that antisemitism plays a part) that the laws simply do not apply to them. They typically react to minor court cases by flooding the courts with absurd complaints which the court must nevertheless legally respond to.
Well, this time, a local agency had enough. The article is in German, but the gist of it: the agency declared the Reichsburger “obviously mentally deranged” and as a result immediately canceled all of his driver’s licenses.
Fucking hell. That made my day. The man proceeded to take the agency to a court whose legitimacy he has made it clear in the past he rejected, apparently not seeing any irony whatsoever in this approach. The state supreme court of Thüringen ruled that yes, there was pretty obviously something pointing to a serious mental defect in this person, and so they didn’t get their license back, and had to also pay for the court costs.
This is such an awesome strategy that I’m shocked nobody has tried it before. I mean, have you guys read the crap SovCit fuckos put out? The court case described this man’s writings as such, translated here for your amusement:
The writings of this so-called “Reichsbürger” to the [rough german equivalent of the DMV], whose actual contents are virtually incomprehensible, displays, beneath the mess of paragraphs and court cases, a completely disturbed view of the world. As a result, this raises serious concerns of the ability of someone with a possible psychosis to drive safely.
The person in question, in addition to the court bill, now also requires a psychological analysis to be able to continue driving.
This made my day, and I seriously hope other agencies around Germany follow suit. Show these fuckers that acting like a fucking crazy person may have the consequence of being treated like a fucking crazy person.
