First we had Donald ‘Grab em by the pussy’ & ‘I’d be dating my daughter’ Trump

Next we had Roy ‘likes em’ Moore ‘young’!

Then we had Arthur ‘Illinois Nazi’ Jones.

But what if you were a libertarian incel with predilections for rape, pedophilia, and white supremacy? You couldn’t vote for all of them at the same time.

But wait if you live in VAs 10th congressional district now you can!

Meet Nathan Larson!
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/report-self-described-pedophile-who-advocates-white-supremacy-is-running-for-congress/
  • For gun rights!
  • Libertarian
  • For free trade
  • Admits to repeatedly raping his ex
  • Want’s pedophilia to be legal
  • Says girls should be property.
  • Wants to bring about a ‘benevolent’ white supremacist nation
  • Considers Hitler a hero!
  • Touts the benefits of adoption as they let you pick the sex of your F’ toy as he refers to kids.
  • Oh and father of a three year old girl
He should really appeal to the anti PC and incel crowd. And just think of the liberal tears if he got elected!

(Thankfully he doesn’t have custody of his daughter)

Doesn't stand a chance;
2017 - General election for D31 Virg
-> 1.68% with 481 votes
The two party loser was 44.25% with 12,658

10th district is going to be for one who has the most money;
Barbara Comstock #1
Alison Friedman #2
Jennifer Wexton #3

Wexton is the favorite.

Main question is did this asshole get some sort of support or approval from the party or did he just decide to run on his own as a libertarian with no support from the party?

-"Nathan Larson does not have and will never receive the Libertarian Party nomination," Libertarian Party of Virginia Chair Bo Brown said in a statement in February 2017.-
No support whatsoever.

Blacklisted for life.

I should damn well hope not.

The main point is the platform of the right over the last 25 years makes these horrific candidates think they have a chance.

“A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it,” he said. “People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.”

  • For gun rights!
    • Libertarian so far
  • Libertarian
    • We'll see
  • For free trade
    • Definitely a libertarian position
  • Admits to repeatedly raping his ex
    • Violates the non aggression principle. Not a libertarian. At all. I'd be embarrassed to call him a Libertarian in my thread title and my bullet point list.
  • Want’s pedophilia to be legal
    • See above
  • Says girls should be property.
    • See above
  • Wants to bring about a ‘benevolent’ white supremacist nation
    • Accepts collectivism and rejects individualism, a decidedly un-libertarian position
  • Considers Hitler a hero!
    • Violates NAP and Individual rights.
  • Touts the benefits of adoption as they let you pick the sex of your F’ toy as he refers to kids.
    • Good lord
  • Oh and father of a three year old girl
This is not a libertarian. Just because someone calls themselves something doesn't mean they are. But you know both of these things.

Just because I care I added quotes around Libertarian in the thread title.

Regardless of what he calls himself many of his positions are far right. The others are criminal.

An authoritarian libertarian pull up by bootstraps incel. Reality is crazier than fiction.

Not good enough. He is clearly not representative of libertarianism and should not even be quoted as such.

Far right != libertarian. Not even close. Again, you know this. Yet you still posted some shitty beliefs of this guy and called them libertarian beliefs. Why did you do this when these beliefs directly contradict fundamental beliefs of libertarianism?

If someone had decided to run for political office as a democrat and they also pledged allegiance to animal rapists, I would never even consider posting a thread about how democrats are running an animal rapist candidate. Because I would have to be either (1) stupid or (2) a liar. to do so. The democratic ideology does not support animal rape. Which are you: stupid or a liar?

I'm uncertain whether it's fair to associate this sociopath with libertarians. Fact is, a lot of libertarians have displayed attitudes and positions that you'd think were in theory antithetical to their supposed philosophy. E.g. there have been libertarians who have expressed racist or anti-Semitic views.

And this chap apparently _was_ previously a member of the Libertarian party.

On the other hand, it's a bit like the Nazis calling themselves national socialists, or Mussolini starting his political career as a socialist. Or David Icke starting as a member (actually, leader!) of the Greens. Anyone can call themselves what they want, politically, that doesn't mean everyone else with that label is responsible for them. And all parties have had members who turned out to be crazy.

On my third hand (I'm a mutant, deal with it) I am of the view that the fact so many fascists have at times appeared as 'socialists' is something leftists need to pay attention to (because, frankly, there's a socialist-like strand to fascism, even if it usually ends up being violently extinguished), so in the same spirit libertarians maybe could examine why this guy wanted to join them at one point.

But nobody is going to vote for him, right? In the era of Trump it's hard to be sure of anything.

And he’s also a convicted felon who had his rights restored in 2016. How is someone with his history even eligible for that???

Im in the 10th district and I am a libertarian. I never even heard of this guy.

So yeah, he wont win. Nut jobs always run for office, and until 2016, they were never anything to worry about.

Well it’s going to have to be good enough as that’s as far as I’m willing to go. Despite his abhorrent positions no one is going to argue Roy Moore wasn’t a republican.

He voluntarily identifies with libertarianism and self-identifies as such. You’ve already addressed how his beliefs are not libertarian. Others have pointed out the libertarian party has ejected him. So I feel the thread adequately addresses the truth of the matter.

“We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property."
"Don't forget: feminism is the problem, and rape is the solution."

If someone wants to castrate him, I'd acquit of all charges.

Duh. Everyone does this. Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat but he runs as one. Look at Christians, Muslims, and other folks who claim to follow a deity. Absolved of guilt, they commit all sorts of atrocities and just blame it on God. Vote for the death penalty? Yes pretty sure it's in the Bible! Not a Muslim? Sorry I have to kill you! Rules are rules!

It's just an excuse. Look at the evangelicals. Trump has fucked everything that moves while being married and raising children, and the evangelicals dismiss it because they view him as a tool to protect their riches. There are no morals at play here. Gotta have that 4th jet!

So do we think this guy is the bottom of the barrel for bat shit insane candidates or will we see lower before November.

I’m having a hard time thinking of something worse.

You should probably go check what some people who self identify as libertarians of some ilk are espousing.
There are, unfortunately, a lot of people who firmly believe that liberty for them should include the right to take away the rights and liberties of other people, and call themselves libertarians, but that doesn't make them so.
I hate these "no true libertarian" arguments, but that's just a fact.

It's true that if you take libertarianism to its logical conclusion, an extreme libertarian might believe you should be able to voluntary enter a slavery contract but saying the government should decree and enforce it as a government program of slavery probably should be classified as a type of authoritarianism.

Yes it was. Do you even know what putting quotes around a word means? When I saw the thread title, I immediately assumed that "libertarian" was by self-definition rather than formal party affiliation. An impression which turned out to be correct.

Scratch a modern "new" libertarian and you'll usually find a corporate anarchist hiding underneath.
