Quote
In raids across the country, German police have arrested 25 suspected members and supporters of a far-right group who were allegedly seeking to overthrow the state by force to install as national leader a prince who had sought support from Russia, according to the federal prosecutor’s office.

About 3,000 officers conducted the raids on Wednesday at 130 sites across 11 German federal states against adherents of the so-called Reich Citizens (Reichsbuerger) movement.

aaaand they have their own Tin-Crowned leader....  THIS guy - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Reuss

Quote
The plot envisaged a former member of a German royal family, identified as Heinrich XIII P R under Germany’s privacy law, as leader in a future state while another suspect, Rüdiger v P, was the head of the military arm, the prosecutors’ office said.



The actual lineage said Heinrich Reuss is "a confused man peddling conspiracy theories"

So wow and wow.   Like Convoy people with a KING

I really like Heinrich’s sport coat!  Way better dressed than the leaders of our nutbar trucker rightwing conspiratards. 

Some people are acting on their rightwing fantasies, and I think this is a good thing, as the more of them that crawl out from under their rocks, the more of them will be identified and arrested, if need be.

But be careful about conflating the internet chatter as a measuring stick for how many actually would act on these delusions.   Most of them are just trolls who wouldn’t leave their basements to ever actually do anything.  So, the internet chatter will carry on unabated.

Well, unless you consider all the people they'll murder.

Correction:  all the people they DO murder.

The preliminary tally conducted by the ADL Center on Extremism reveals that domestic extremists killed at least 29 people in the United States in 2021, up from the 23 murders documented for 2020, but far fewer than the killings in any of the years 2015-19 (which ranged from 45 to 78).

I’m hoping they’re arrested before the murdering.
