Augustus Invictus joins us via Skype for the entire two hours today to discuss what’s happening with him, and other pressing stories. A Facebook page too obscure to mention here tagged me in a post bashing Augustus, and when I went to see what they were about, the entire page was filled with left (((libertarian))) blogs bashing Augustus. I had so much fun looking over them by myself, that I thought this could only be improved by going over them with him, for the entertainment of the Radical Agenda audience.
Here’s one of my favorites: “Augustus Sol Invictus Is Not Welcome In My State” by David Colborne of the Libertarian Party of Nevada. David is concerned that Augustus is a very bad person and should thus be prevented from entering the state of Nevada. David reminds us that he has a wife and children and a job, otherwise he would resort to criminal activity to accomplish this goal. I wonder if David has written anything about preventing Islamists and communists from entering the United States?
Here is another: “Free Speech and No Platform: A Brief Libertarian Case for Silencing Fascists” over at Libertarians United Against Fascism. The author (who does not see fit to reveal his identity) claims it is fascists who refuse honest debate, not the communist rioters who set six figure fires to silence gay Jewish immigrants. By this supposed libertarian standard, the mere fact that someone has been deemed a fascist in his infinite wisdom, is evidence enough that they should be silenced by any means necessary.
There are a few others, and of course a lot of other more important stories to get to, but here is the point I want to draw here. This stopped being about principles or morality a long time ago. It seems to me the right is just now figuring this out, while the left has known it all along. The simple physics are this: One group has interests, another group has interests which are diametrically opposed to the first group’s interests, so only one can achieve their goals, and must do so at the expense of the other.
You can call it left vs right, whites vs. non-whites, communists vs. fascists, or whatever you want. Ultimately, this is us vs. them, no matter who the us and them turn out to be. We are not designed to be a global mass of harmonious humanity. We are tribal pack animals who pursue group interests the expense of other groups. If you call yourself an anti-fascist in 2017, then you’re on the side of arsonists and communists and people who assault women and senior citizens for disagreeing with their politics, and you better believe that makes you “them” as far as I’m concerned.
There’s a lot more to get to, plus your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.
So join us, this and every Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like AntiFa!
