Douchebag calling himself libertarain...

Postby Just_Jackie » Tue Sep 28, 2010 7:06 am

This is awful. This is embarrassing for me as someone who calls myself libertarian.

You must realize that the vast majority of "free market capitalists" are also socially conservative. And they are ALWAYS looking for a way to exert power. This was shown with the Tea Party. A "Libertarian" cause hijacked by these socially conservative f*ck jobs. I think if you want to start a "movement", and it PAINS me to say this, you need to become "small tent". Accepting these idiots into the "movement" would be nice AND ENCOURAGED if they weren't insane. Believe me, I am pragmatic and would love the support. But when the crazies trying to join your group actually out number your group, they wont just come in and align on just fiscal issues, they will eat your movement up and sh*t it out as just another Social Con constituency. Because all the sane people will have moved on.

The next movement Libertarians start, they damn well better kick the Social Cons out, let this whole Tea Party make a lesson learned.

I mostly skimmed through his huge rant. I saw the part about how he is worried that heterosexual solidiers are going to get hit on by gays..Stupid. He is assuming a lot of things. For instance, he is assuming gay people are attracted to every single member of the same sex. It doesn't work that way, I mean, I am only attracted to certain girls, not every girl or woman I see. And my gay friend isn't attracted to every single guy. Just certain types of guys, like how breeders are attracted to certain members of the opposite sex. Secondly he is assuming gay people are going to make un wanted advances to straight soldiers. I think for the most part, that wouldn't happen if don't ask don't tell was a thing of the past. Most gay people I know do not hit on straight people,because they are smart enough to know there is no point. Sometimes, you might get see an individual who won't take " I am straight" for an answer, but that isn't really so different from certain straight people who keep on hitting on people who aren't interested in them and don't take " Go to Hell" for an answer.

But at the same time, well is this guy someone you know? If not, isn't it a little unfair to post his facebook page so we can all talk sh*t about him without telling him? I don't know, if you are going to talk sh*t, say it where the person you are talking about can hear you or see what you say. I don't like what he has to say, but technically he does have the right to say it on his Facebook page.

That postscript from Olsen was wholly unnecessary, and he just comes off as homophobic. :/

Being as ignorant as I am on economic issues,must confess it was people like this who originally drove me away from the libertarians - its just bad for their party image to have people with these ideas advertising the label. Odd the people who hate freedom in business most, the wing-nut socialists on the other side of the aisle, seem most obsessed with freedom at home, possibly taking anti-Xism too far in the other direction.

Some baige jacketed Marxist streetpreacher handed me a pamphlet on 'strategy and tactics of the revolution' yesterday, read it for the lulz; advice sounded like what GTA was giving, said a movement that accommodates everyone "liquidates" true believers among those mildly on the left so the message is dilluted, and control over movement direction is lost. Also advised against "sectarianism" saying you should still associate with those who agree on this issue, just not let them into the "vanguard" of the movement (the actual party) if they don't agree on everything. Seemed like dogmatic BS at the time but maybe its good advice for the next tea party?

He might not actually believe this, it could be an act to get votes - while i'd like to think this behavior pushes away the electorate, and only the loudmouths make these ideas sound popular, I'm less sure of that after the Palin effect seemed to actually push up voter turnout.

I am pragmatic and would love the support

Support of what now?

I should put a disclaimer at the beginning of this thread: "The views expressed by Mr. Olsen do not reflect those of the Libertarian Party. Please do not attack the party for them."

Votes. I would normally accept people's votes when they disagree on certain issues but aren't insane. These people are.
