Here’s Why Libertarians Are Mostly Men… No Comment Necessary Department

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Rush Limbaugh. Sic Semper Tyrannis!


Jeet Heer investigates a provocative question today… why are most libertarians men? He offers several plausible explanations, but I think that he misses the real one, perhaps, because it’s unflattering to libertarians. Here’s the quick answer… hard-core libertarianism is a fantasy. It’s a fantasy where the strongest and most self-reliant folks end up at the top of the heap, and a fair number of men share the fantasy that they are these folks. They believe rules and regulations designed to help the weak have held them back, but in a libertarian culture, their talents would be obvious, so, they’d naturally rise to positions of power and influence. Of course, most of them are wrong, as a truly libertarian culture would squash nearly all of them like ants… mostly by the same people who squash them now. However, the fantasy lives on, regardless. Few women share this fantasy. I don’t know why; I don’t want to play amateur sociologist and guess. Perhaps, it’s something as simple as the plain observation that women were in almost-complete subjugation to men in a more-libertarian past. Why would that be an appealing fantasy to a woman? Anyway, this is obviously simplistic and unflattering, and it’s going to offend libertarians. Sorry. However, feel free to take some guesses about why women don’t take to libertarianism as strongly as men do.

June 2015. Westboro Baptist Scummers to Disrupt Biden Funeral

01 Westboro Baptist Church Phelps protestor


Read this. I find this disgusting and beyond the pale. I speak as a political opponent of damned near everything that Joe Biden stands for. He has the right to mourn in peace. If it were up to me, I’d have the coppers disperse this pack of jackals. No matter what one may think of his reprehensible politics, Joe Biden has the God-given and human right to mourn his son in peace, without asshat interruptions. This is utter and unrelieved EVIL. How low can human beings sink? Didn’t they listen to Mom and Dad? God willing, the cops will keep these scumbags FAR away from the funeral party. Doesn’t it make you want to pick up the “board of education” and do some impromptu educatin’? I don’t have to like somebody to defend them when they’re wronged…
