And last week, this group took its first steps toward sovereignity…at least in its own view.
The Yes California Independence Campaign, which has promoted the hashtag #Calexit, held an opening of its embassy in Moscow on Dec. 18, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The group, led by San Diego resident Louis Marinelli, wants a 2018 state ballot measure that, if passed, would bring California one step closer to becoming its own independent nation.
“We want to start laying the groundwork for a dialogue about an independent California joining the United Nations now,” Marinelli said in an email to the Times Monday.
There’s more than a little bat crap crazy going on there. But hey, if California can’t rule the country in the voting booth, I guess trying to join the UN is the next best thing. Even if they have to actually secede first.
I say let them go. And please, take all the celebrities and athletes with you.
