Right-Wing Dog Whistles

#5. Sovereign: In the right wing, this term has two meanings. The most troubling refers to a notion called “sovereign citizen,” a term popularized by the violent Posse Comitatus militia formation in the 1970s to argue that white people have a superior form of citizenship to that of black people. More commonly, the term “sovereign” refers to a states’ rights philosophy that is consonant with secessionist ideologies.
