My post, A Plea to My Fellow Libertarians: Please Throw Donald Trump Under the Bus, has drawn a number of comments, some of which I will respond to here. My responses are in blue.
I don't pretend to know who is behind what, but if I was a ruthless leftie (or do I repeat myself?) I'd be out there dressed as a Nazi KKK honky supremacist moron flying a Trump Forever flag.
What difference does this make to the point of my essay that we shouldn't be supporting Trump who is not advancing any libertarian positions? A Trump who is clearly unwilling to call out fascist protesters (government provocateurs or otherwise).
Vanguard America does not speak for all Whites.
They don't call them Hollywood Nazis without reason.
Who said they represent all whites? The point is that there is no advantage to align with them or their slogans. And once again, Trump is clearly unwilling to call out fascist protesters (government provocateurs or otherwise) in the same fashion he does other groups. See, for example, his anti-MS13 press event.
Firstly, almost everything you are reading about Charlottesville in the media is a lie. The right wingers were there to protest peacefully but were attacked by the Antifa crowd, egged on, apparently and disturbingly (If true) by the Police themselves so they could shut the proceedings down.
So what does this have to do with not supporting right wing fascists? If we take your narrative of events, then the fascists don't want street brawls, they want the government to throw out all non-whites using the force of government. We are supposed to support this, when there isn't an ounce of libertarianism in their positions?
My essay has nothing to do with support for Antifa both groups need to be condemned. And that is the point of my essay, there is no edge for libertarians to align with these clowns.
Just because you supported Hillary it doesn't make you a Crook, Socialist, Warmonger or Crony Capitalist and the same goes for Trump supporters as far as supporting all of Trump's views.
I didn't support Hillary.I made the point clear by forming, Libertarians Against Clinton, Trump, Johnson and Stein. My only point was that it would be easier to attack Hillary and libertarians would have more people considering libertarian arguments.
That is if Hillary would have been elected President I most surely would have been attacking her as much as I am Trump now. My point is that some libertarians are falling by the wayside of attacking Trump when there is no strategic reason to protect him.
Those moron nazi marchers don't represent Trump! Theoretically some marchers may possibly read your blog. Does that make you responsible for their actions?
No, they may not represent Trump but once again, Trump is clearly unwilling to call out fascist protesters (government provocateurs or otherwise) in the same fashion he does other groups. See, for example, his anti-MS13 press event.
I am perfectly willing to call out fascists, antifa, Trump, Hillary and you ( a reader).
Your article is very unfair and is outrageous hyperbole! Sorry to say that this article reads like something the "Deep State" would facilitate by paying one of their STOOGE LACKEYS in the MSM to write to discredit Trump.
Yes, you are correct, I get paid big time by the Deep State because it is exceptionally difficult to make Trump, the libertarian, look like a buffoon, who is anti-free trade, pro low Fed interest rates, and infatuated with the military. Sometimes, I am amazed at myself that I can make these claims stick against Trump.
