Of course 'they' think we're all racists. And of course even those who don't will happily perpetuate the notion because it undermines the credibility of the libertarian argument.
However, surprising as it is to have to point this out, there are actual racists out there, and some of them with a rather poor understanding of the principles underlying libertarianism are attempting to latch onto the philosophy and it's luminaries.
Ron Paul does not espouse a racist world viewpoint. As libertarians (and I'm using that term rather broadly in this post in general), we recognize that racism is a collectivist viewpoint - I'm not a "race denier" in that I recognize there are distinct races; however, that in no way contradicts the fact that human beings are individually distinct and their race or ethnicity or any other superficiality determine their value. We may recognize some generalities among certain categorized human beings, but a libertarian does not assess the worth of one human being based upon those arbitrary categories.
Only simple-minded jackasses do.
You yourself may not be a racist - I don't know and I really don't give a fuck. And there may well be many folks who identify themselves as members of the "alt-right" who aren't racist, either. But don't try to pretend that posting videos with all of this code language and imagery isn't racist. Everyone knows what a "cuck" is, and it's not some coincidental use of a word. It's an intentional signal, and it's racist in origin. I mean, if I try to claim I'm not a racist I just happen to refer to black folks as 'monkeys', I'd be full of shit, and everyone would know it. Same goes for you and the crowd you're choosing to run with.
