The Crazy Company John Nygren Keeps

Advice usually comes extremely cheap to elected officials, so it's usually important to be able to distinguish between the good, the bad and the just plain crazy.

There's at least one blogger in Wisconsin who seems to be living proof that Rep. John Nygren doesn't know how to do that.

I'm referring to Capt. Karl, a Ron Paul acolyte and blogger from up north who part of a nascent movement to organize a second Continental Congress. But that's just the start of his crazy, crazy ideas: he's a Birther and paranoid about the North American Union and the Federal Reserve -- pretty standard stuff for a neo-Bircher -- but he also believes that the H1N1 vaccine is a secret government plot to implant RFID chips in the population so as to control us all. Seriously.

This last delusion disqualifies him from the pool of rational human beings in my book, but some say my standards are too high. Regardless, Capt. Karl fancies himself, if not something of a mover and shaker, then at least one of Rep. Nygren's informal advisors:
[I have worked on] Assembly Joint Resolution – 51 Wisconsin State Sovereignty, which the Democratic “tyrants” are letting die in conference and SO; and soon working on a combo with MORE TEETH that will be a “marriage” of Wisconsin Health Care “Right to Choose” combined with a MUCH STRONGER version of State Sovereignty which will be a reasonable facsimilie of the New Hampshire model.

I have been working with Assemblyman John Nygren of the 89th. If you read this blog a little more often you would know more about this. I, Capt. Karl, was the one who initiated this effort to protect my fellow Wisconsinites from The Federal Government via this legislation.

I bolded the last line just because its self-importance brings me great mirth. I don't understand what the hell he's saying in the first paragraph after the opening sentence.

The moral of the story is that this guy is under the impression that he's working hand-in-hand with member of the state Assembly -- and I find that a member of the assembly listening to advice from a guy who believes that who H1N1 vaccine nonsense to be a little troubling.

Now, I understand that I can't in good conscience say in one breath that this dude is batshit insane, then in another breath believe everything he says about just how important he is. In fact, there's evidence to suggest that Nygren's office keeps Capt. Karl at arm's length. Here's the text of an email Nygren staffer Matt Banaszynski wrote back to crazy ass Karl in response to a truly insane message that tries to tie all of Karl's paranoid obsessions into one Unified Theory of Alternate Reality (really, this thing has to be read to be believed). Most advisers don't communicate through a legislator's staff, but the notion that Nygren has some kind of Batphone with a direct line to Capt. Karl's Unibomber shack is amusing nonetheless.

P.S.: My 25 year old daughter Traci will be coming. I hope you guys will facilitate her interest in coming to a WI Appleseed. She’s a pretty good shot already, but she’s still a “cook”, if you catch my drift.

Yeah, I have no idea what the hell any of that means.

This dude is fucking nuts.

Have you searched him on wis ccap? What fun.

When I read Capt Karl it brings to mind the image of men in white coats chasing him with butterfly nets.....

Bat shit crazy and with his lack of connection to reality, one worries about what will happen when reality intrudes on his warped vision of current events.
