Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. And more funny, too.
And I’m not talking about the irony that comes when a leftist agitator gets what’s coming to him because karma comes back around to bite him (though, yes, that’s funny, too). I mean, just funny. In the case of a recent story, it’s funny because its absurd. Nonsense. Foolish. As in, “Why in the world would anyone take this as anything significant in this situation?” funny.
You’ll see what I mean when you read the details. Zachary Stieber writes,
In another case linked to the breach, the FBI said it seized a Lego set from an accused rioter.
While arresting Robert Morss on June 11, law enforcement recovered a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag, a black tourniquet, and a notebook with writings that included “Step by Step to Create Hometown Militia,” according to a memorandum that asks a judge to keep Morss in jail until a trial.
“Law enforcement also recover[e]d a fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set,” the filing states.
Morss is in custody on charges including civil disorder and violent entry of a building on Capitol grounds.
The FBI also stated that they believe Morss “poses a danger to the community.” We can only suppose that danger comes from the possession of the Lego set. I mean, who knows what kind of terror Morss might cause if he were to build a Batmobile out of Legos? The FBI might never be able to get him into custody again.
But maybe it will make liberals in the White House feel better to know that the Department of Justice has issued a correction of that statement. In another piece, Stieber writes,
“Please note that after a review of the photographs from the search, there appears to have been a miscommunication and that statement appears to be inaccurate. The Lego set was in a box and not fully constructed at the time of the search […],” they wrote.
I don’t know about you, but I, for one, am relieved that the Morss hadn’t built that U.S. Capitol Lego set. Our great nation might have fallen if he had.
