Canadian libertarian frets over diversity: https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/tory-mp ... -1.4050494

In other news, experts ask, Why are libertarians almost exclusively white males?
The above libertarian is, according to the rumours, either quitting politics or starting a new federal conservative party. Apparently swallowing hemlock isn't one of the rumours.

edit: Yup, splitting the right. His new party will be dedicated to libertarian economics and xenophobia.

It is stunning how many people I thought were reasonably socially conscious and critical thinking who say, "Well, he does have a point …." It used to be that people would wonder how the hell Germans fell for the Nazi line of bullshit—how could people embrace such madness—and yet here we are, huh?

I'm confessing that I have never seen a picture of him before, but I visualized him being a lot younger and nerdier. This guy looks like the professor who sleeps with all of his students, not a basement dweller who comes out only for a free tiki torch. Makes him all the more scary.

Libertarian forms political party, gives it a vaguely Stalinist name that also makes it ripe for "People's Front of Judea" jokes. Starting off well …

I must admit I do get some lols watching "sensible" Tories like Elliott and Mulroney debase and humiliate themselves in service of a dumbshit pigfuck sack of lard they probably hate anyway — really lays bare their party's total moral and political bankruptcy. They don't believe in or stand for anything.

That's been the pattern for decades, here and elsewhere. The "moderates" acquiesce, explaining their behaviour by any number of rationales—the other side is worse, we can control the nuts better if we partner with them, this actually isn't that radical—and then express shock and dismay as the nuts' behaviour becomes normalized and "moderates" get tarred as "not really conservative." Don't claim to be sensible and principle if you never act it.

It reminds me a bit of an assertion by Scalia in a case where Jews buried in a military cemetery shouldn't be bothered by a big fucking cross because it's, apparently, not a religious symbol, it's about honouring all war dead. These people babble on about Christianity being under attack, but when convenient they become the secularists who are such a threat. There's intellectual dishonesty and then there's cheap and lazy politics. See, conservatives, this is what happens when you dumb down your side—you can't even muster a halfway coherent argument.
