Glenn Beck ♥ Libertarians

Unless of course you are too principled. Why, then you are a Nazi and a fascist of the worst sort. Beck can’t understand why many libertarians have a problem with him. What are these past transgressions? he asks. A quick search of LRC will tell you all you need to know. But, hey, you are just being ‘holier-than-thou’ to hold that against him. After all, he says, I have changed. Yeah, right.

Here is an interesting analysis from the director of Freedom Works. It’s wrong on Rothbard, using his term, luftmenschen, to describe libertarians with no love for Beck. Still, all press is good press I suppose. In the video clip from that article Beck defines the political spectrum, going from ‘dangerous’ anarcho-capitalism to totalitarianism. Penn Jilllette is on the fringe of being an ancap, according to Beck, while Julian Assange is a totalitarian.

UPDATE:
An employee at Freedom Works informs me that the analysis was not carried out by the director of Freedom Works, rather the Director of Production, and he does not speak for FW. The employee also informs me that there are a lot of ancaps working at Freedom Works. How wonderful!
