Are Beltarians Turning Young Libertarians Into the System’s Volunteer Auxiliary Thought Police?

By Margaret H. Roberts

So now it appears that House GOP Whip Steve Scalise did not after all speak to David Duke’s EURO group, although the news is disseminating suspiciously slowly [Steve Scalise spoke to civic association meeting, not white nationalist conference, David Duke adviser Kenny Knight says, by Julia O’Donoghue,, December 31, 2014]. This presumably means that the Main Stream Media will be thwarted, for now, in its obvious intent to spread the smear to Senator Rand Paul via his father [If you’re a politician and your chummy past with neo-Nazis resurfaces, don’t worry. Ask Ron Paulby Jeb Lund, The Guardian, December 30, 2015]. But there can be no doubt that, if Paul had been brought under more pressure, he would have groveled. Perhaps the most ominous trend on the American Right today is libertarians’ adoption of prevailing “anti-racism” dogma, to the point where they can increasingly only be interpreted as overtly anti-White.
“Three out of four people in jail for drugs are people of color,” Paul wrote late last year. “In the African American community, folks rightly ask why are our sons disproportionately incarcerated, killed, and maimed?” [Rand Paul: The Politicians Are to Blame in Ferguson,, November 25, 2014]
Unfortunately for Paul, two assassinated NYPD officers were the predictable subsequent result of the ongoing Leftist agitation to which he was pandering. He had opened the door for his intra-party rivals to run against him on the traditional Republican issue of “law and order.”
Yet even apart from Paul’s tactical misstep, if he had merely reviewed crime statistics issued by Eric “my people” Holder’s Justice Department—or even his father Ron Paul’s old newsletters—he would have seen that black crime is committed at a shockingly disproportionate rate, triggering a massive response from police.
Paul is too intelligent not to understand this. But we’re talking about the shameless politician who knowingly hired the erstwhile “Southern Avenger” Jack Hunter only to later accept his resignation. Paul patronizes the historic American nation that he is one of them until he is secure in office. But the record shows that once targeted by the MSM Megaphone, he buckles.
Instead of grassroots conservatives, Paul is aiming at a fickle but critical component of his support base—the Beltway based anti-statists whom calls Libertarianism, Inc. Libertarianism Inc., funded significantly by the Koch brothers, is comprised of the Left-libertarians who so annoyed Murray Rothbard because they put their social liberalism ahead of the goal of confronting the state. The defining element of left-libertarianism seems to be utter contempt for the historic American nation, especially those voters who make up the Republican base.
Needless to say, as Ann Coulter has pointed out, none of these people will stand by the libertarian position on employment discrimination—any more than Rand Paul himself. Instead, both Libertarianism Inc. and Paul are championing their opposition to the militarization of the police.
Rather than stopping the riots that were destroying private property and endangering productive citizens in Ferguson, the Libertarian Party went so far as to tell police to “stand down” and pretended the issue had something to do with drugs. [Libertarian Party: Police Should Stand Down in Ferguson, MO; End Failed Drug War,, August 14, 2014] Despite their pro forma condemnation of rioting, they’re essentially defending Anarchy — telling police to “stand down” as race riots rage does nothing to help the civil liberties of black Americans and only encourages agitators.
Besides, why do libertarians even care about police militarization? Like selective immigration enforcement, the militarized police is a tool of a state that practices “anarcho-tyranny,” using extreme force to terrify ordinary Americans while giving rioters a pass. None of that massive force that has been assembled is used, as it should have been, to ruthlessly coerce the “protesters.” The militarized police presence is a sign of weakness, not strength, because there is no will in the Establishment to use it against black rioters.
The more menacing the State’s facade, the weaker its execution. The more pointless a show of force, the more..

  1. This and the Mercer article from earlier today are all over the place. It appears to be some new kind of seriously strange, right-wing agitprop. It goes along with the cheers for police militarization I've been seeing on the typical "conservative" sites after Ferguson, etc. This one takes the cake, though. Anarcho-tyranny, huh? Rand Paul and (Mercer) Judge Nap are "left-libertarians"?
