These illustrious Bloomberg progressives are exactly right. Libertarians are the new communists. I don’t believe I have read a more factually based polemic that reflects the truth of history concerning those would-be commissars cloistered at the Mises Institute and similar environs.
Just last Wednesday I drove past one of those infamous libertarian gulags which have imprisoned and killed tens of millions of zeks (prisoners) on my way to a funeral in Wakita, OK.
The horror, the horror!
Libertarians brutally imposed on mankind their so-called “Industrial Revolution” which drove happy, contented, and well-fed peasants into grimy, over-crowded urban cesspools (festering with Cholera) to become enslaved proletarians in dark satanic mills and factories. If you want to see the model nation which resisted this savage and rapacious stench of industrialism, carefully examine that veritable utopian paradise on Earth, Ireland in the 1840s. Oh, to have been alive during those halcyon and glorious days on the Emerald Isle!
Libertarians were cravenly behind the slave trade disrupting familial clans and tribal societies who had lived in peace, solidarity and undisturbed harmony for centuries. It was those disruptive libertarian abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison and Lysander Spooner who were responsible for the genocidal Civil War.
Doesn’t anyone read the wise and prudential counsel of George Fitzhugh anymore? He was one of America’s greatest social theorists who knew exactly the true relationship between benevolent chattel slavery in the South and oppressive wage slavery in the North. He knew that the libertarians’ laissez-faire “free society” was evil incarnate, and that socialism and slavery were the wave of the future.
Lastly, libertarians, as strident noninterventionists, anti-militarists, and ardent pacifists, were behind the wars which have murdered millions.
God damn these libertarians, and the hobby lobby horse they rode in on!5:02 pm on July 4, 2014 Email Charles Burris
