The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department has teamed up with the Anti-Defamation League to sponsor a quasi-secret meeting in Camarillo, California that characterizes small government activists as violent terrorists.
Entitled The Sovereign Citizen Movement: Exploring Their Ideology & Indicators, the conference is set to take place on January 5th, 2012 and is only open to “Public Safety Personnel”. The precise location of the meeting is only made known to “reviewed and cleared” attendees, a measure of secrecy crafted to imply that members of the Sovereign Citizen movement are a potential violent threat.
Indeed, a flyer for the event written by the ADL’s Joanna Mendelson characterizes the movement as a “right-wing anarchist” fringe group that uses “paper terrorism” to pursue its cause of restoring minimalist government and resorts to harassment, intimidation and violence.
“This seminar is sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and facilitated by the Ventura Country Sheriff’s Intelligence Unit,” states the flyer.
