Obama served with Lindstedt lawsuit
Federal court records indicate President Barack Obama was served Friday with a lawsuit filed by white supremacist Martin Lindstedt of Granby...a lawsuit in which Lindstedt indicates he would not mind seeing the president assassinated.
Lindstedt's complaint is apparently closed to the public since the message "You do not have permission to view this document" is shown when the link on the U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri website is clicked.
However, Lindstedt posted the text of the lawsuit, most of which is incomprehensible ramblings, on a website. In the complaint, Lindstedt, serving as his own lawyer, writes, "The main reason that Plaintiffs are filing this lawsuit is simply that it goes against Plaintiffs religious beliefs to allow any non-white, especially a n-----, to be in any position of authority over any White man, no matter how degraded." (Note: Lindstedt's lawsuit uses the actual n word. I don't intend to do the same.)
Lindstedt refers to himself in the lawsuit as pastor of The Church of Jesus Christ Christian/Aryan Nations of Missouri. Other defendants in the action include Sen. John McCain, the State of Missouri, Gov. Matt Blunt (the suit was filed in November), Missouri Department of Mental Health/Fulton State Hospital, Attorney General Jay Nixon, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, Missouri Supreme Court, Missouri Democratic Party, Missouri Republican Party, Missouri Libertarian Party, "Traitor" Glenn Miller, Newton County Republican Party, Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland, Judge John LePage, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jakob Skouby, and Newton County Clerk Kay Baum.
The lawsuit includes this sentence:
"We could, like other White Nationalist organizations, simply hope and pray for an assassin and enjoy the inevitable race riots which we seek."
Sadly, the cost of serving President Obama, John McCain (who was also served Friday, according to court records), and the other defendants, as well as the bill for this waste of time, is being borne by taxpayers.
Lindstedt has previously filed frivolous lawsuits against everyone from Missouri Southern State University, the city of Granby, Matt Blunt, well, you name it, he's sued it. He has also been an unsuccessful candidate for every political position from East Newton R-6 Board of Education to governor.
Lindstedt, by the way, is still awaiting trial on a charge of statutory sodomy. He allegedly molested a six-year-old boy. He is free on bond.
