Stupid Is As Stupid Does

You'll recall the Jade Helm hysteria nonsense. Three guys at the shallower end of the gene pool were arrested for plotting to wage war on our military over that exercise:

Federal officials say three North Carolina men — Walter Eugene Litteral, 50; Christopher James Barker, 41; and Christopher Todd Campbell, 30 — spent months compiling their cache, much of it purchased through a military surplus store owner who became so concerned about the plot that the person became the FBI’s informant.

The men were arrested Saturday and charged with conspiracy and amassing weaponry allegedly to combat what they believe is the government’s plan to impose martial law through (among other things) the multistate military exercise known as Jade Helm.

As we've learned from jihadis, idiots with weapons can do a lot of damage.
