Oregon Occupier Countersues for $666 Billion, Citing ‘Works of the Devil’
Demonstrating once more that the strange leaves of modern sovereign citizen philosophy spring from the deep roots of last century’s Christian Identity movement.
Shawna Cox, one of the last militants to be arrested for occupying an Oregon wildlife refuge last month, has filed a countersuit against the U.S. government and others in which she alleges “damages from the works of the devil in excess of 666,666,666,666.66.”
While she invoked the number of the beast in her request for damages, Cox listed a wide array of people she plans to subpoena, including: ranchers in the western U.S.; judges and prosecutors; Oregon’s current and former governor; local and state police officers; FBI agents; and “various law professors.”
Cox said she plans to ask a jury to deliver civil and criminal penalties against many of those same people, who she says have worked to subvert the constitutional government and impose “socialism, communism and imperialism types of government onto the people of the United States of America.”
