Thread: Libertarian Party Defends Left-Wing Mob That Attacked Gun Girl Kaitlin Bennett

    Thumbs down Libertarian Party Defends Left-Wing Mob That Attacked Gun Girl Kaitlin Bennett

    The Libertarian Party (LP) defended a left-wing mob that attacked gun rights protester Kaitlin Bennett on Tuesday when she traveled to Ohio University.
    Bennett produced video of a mob continuously accosting her during her visit to the university, where she was pelted with debris as the mob hurled threats at her.

    This prompted the LP to defend the mob of unruly leftists, claiming that it was within their constitutional rights to menace Bennett and throw projectiles at her in an attempt to obstruct her from spreading her pro-gun message.
    Ms. Bennett, you have a right to your opinion, and a right to voice it.
    These college students do as well.
    Calling them "terrorists" because they utilized their right to assembly and speech is both dishonest and shameful.
    — Libertarian Party (@LPNational) February 18, 2020
    As the LP was attacked for their seemingly incomprehensible opinion, they doubled down on their support for the leftist mob.
    Protests are often charged and hectic.
    Based on what info is provided here, no bodily harm came to anyone in attendance.
    A situation that may appear frightening isn't cause for accusing people exercising their rights of being evil – something we believe Ms. Bennett advocates.
    — Libertarian Party (@LPNational) February 18, 2020

    We don't see any hands being put on her – that would of course be inappropriate.
    And to be clear, obviously throwing things isn't alright either – but calling people "terrorists" because they got water on your car is outright absurd.

    This is far from the first time that the Libertarians have stood with far-left liberals as they march to destroy liberty. Their stated goal is to throw elections to the Democrats these days:
    Although Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has refused to concede defeat, preliminary results show his Democratic opponent Andy Beshear beating him by a narrow margin in yesterday’s gubernatorial race.
    The final count showed Bevin trailing by a mere 4,658 votes, or 0.3 percentage points. This is well under the 28,427 votes collected by the Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate John Hicks, who received 2 percent of the vote in the election.
    While it may not be the case that Libertarian voters would preferred Bevin if Hicks were theoretically removed from the ballot, the Libertarian Party of Kentucky (LPK) is taking great pride in their role as anti-Republican spoiler. They are rubbing it in the face of Bevin voters, flaunting their role in handing the governorship over to a socialist liberal.
    “In an ideal world, we elect Libertarian candidates and advance liberty. Failing that, we push mainstream candidates towards liberty to advance the cause,” the LPK wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.
    “But if we can’t do those things, we are always happy to split the vote in a way that causes delicious tears. Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters,” they added.
    The LPK criticized Bevin despite his limited government credentials and willingness to push back against big government entities like the state teachers’ union as governor. They cited Bevin’s unwillingness to cut taxes or support criminal justice reform, despite the fact that did both while in office.
    The libertarian movement has fallen far since the days when Ron Paul was in Congress, as the LP embraces useful idiocy for the Left.

    How much proof do real libertarians and the country need before they realize the LP is the establishments solution to ensure the philosophy never takes hold. It has been proven time and time again.

    They have become the party of Satan, those who say they are liberty lovers but are not.

    And those that are not evil masquerading as good are Scribes and Pharisees, I will instead go to the Republicans and sinners they refuse to work with.

    I would suggest replacing Satan with morons. Satan doesn't carry much weight anymore, while being called a moron can at least still get you banned on RPF

    I use it because I am paraphrasing something and because there is a large Satanist component of the LP.

    I stated to write how they are the same party that had tweeted a Church of Satan quote a few years back but then figured out of curiosity let me see if anyone else is thinking along those lines here. Very next post.

    These people at LP could have at least watched the video. Talking and peaceful protests is one thing but throwing stuff even water at people who disagree with you is just wrong. Its one thing is this is a one off incident, but there have been a few times now where they have been completely wrong in their assessment. The LP leadership needs to go, this is unacceptable.

    Not just water, somebody hit her with hot coffee as well. The only reason she got out of there unharmed is she had what looked like a 7ft security guard with her, completely wrapping himself around her at times.

    Yea, but even if its just water, it is still assault and not any kid of legitimate protest against someone expressing their opinion. But even in the video in the OP, you can see or hear people hitting her SUV, the LP cannot defend that kind of activity hiding under the 1st amendment BS.

    It seems like the LP leadership is trying to appeal to Democrats and the left right now.

    and some say politics is not a religion.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Congrats Swordy, you're finally learning! ALL Beltway leadership of political parties are controlled opposition working for the communists, toward a global communist world government. Let's not forget that the Trump admin actively supported the USMCA, which turned over most of what remained of American sovereignty to the communist United Nations.

    It's always important to remember to separate "leadership" (Beltway types) from the rank-and-file of parties. Some like to imply that the Beltway swamp dwellers speak for party members across the country, when they do not.

    "Let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    I always liked the Constitution Party more.
    But the LP has gone nuts since 2016.
    Trump Derangement Syndrome?

    And the LP has seemingly adopted Satanism.

    LP's current version is probably as "libertarian" as Republican Party's current version is "Republican" going by purist standards.

    But maybe time for some pragmatism and making allies. GOA leadership's calling current GOPA wing leader "fraud" recently is not the way to build broader coalition, such purist approach increases divisiveness.

    The Libertarian Party in general needs to stop trying to get left wing extremists on our side.
