Arkansas man wants to raise $23 million to overthrow the government. Wants bible taught instead of common core. May 10, 2016

An Arkansas man by the name of Maverick Dean Bryan (yes, he’s really named Maverick) has had enough of kids being taught science and math in a fashion laid out by educational experts.  He thinks he knows better and is apparently willing to hang government officials in order to prove it:

According to court documents, Bryan threatened to hang the mayors of  Ashdown, Hope, De Queen, Lewisville, Nashville, Prescott and Murfreesboro from the “mighty oaks” on their courthouse lawns if they didn’t force local schools to replace the Common Core curriculum with the Bible.

Yes, otherwise how would those kids learn that murdering people who don’t agree with you is wrong?

Saying Bryan, “has repeatedly demonstrated his unwillingness to abide by the laws concerning the possession of firearms by a convicted felon,” U.S. District Judge Susan Hickey sent him back to jail on the recommendation of federals prosecutors.

Probably a good call.

“Defendant has an extensive criminal history involving the possession of firearms. In addition to his three previous convictions involving firearms, Defendant has admitted that he was impermissibly in possession of a firearm on the day of his arrest,” the order stated.

I see natural selection applies to police matters as well.

During depositions, Bryan admitted to placing ads in a local paper seeking $23 million to raise a Christian army to overthrow the U.S. government.

$23 million?  Ok.  That will buy a lot of bibles to throw at government buildings.  But considering that in 2011 the US military had a budget of $664.84 billion dollars (that’s BILLION, with a “B”), you probably wouldn’t be able to make a dent in the actual government unless prayer somehow started to work.  That, or if the guy who told police officers arresting him that he was carrying an illegal firearm is actually a tactical genius.

I consider both possibilities to be equally implausible.

Prosecutors stated that Bryan’s letter also demanded that the mayors no longer honor votes cast by anyone who is homosexual, Muslim, socialist, communist, atheist, or anyone who worships a God other than Jesus Christ.

I wonder if he thinks Christians are being persecuted and, therefore, thinks persecution is a horrible thing.

He also demanded those people be required to “exit.”

Bryan’s trial is slated for later this month.

Please let him serve as his own attorney.
