Libertarians Fear Truther Cult Infiltration
The Troofer wing of the Libertarian Party is pushing a 9-11 Investigation Plank to their platform this year.
Don't kid yourself. This is not some minor side show that is going on with these Libertarians for Justice. This year already Dylan Avery, director of Loose Change, was the keynote luncheon speaker at the 2008 Libertarian State Chairs Conference. Loose Change, is the You Tube hit from 2005, a documentary claiming that 9/11 was an inside job. A documentary so full of mistakes and distortions that even members the 9/11 truth Movement like Michael Green have separated themselves from some of the theories in the documentary.
Make no mistake, allowing the 9/11 Truth movement to take over the LP is not going to be good. It is not only bad history but it is bad politics. Like the albatross in Coleridge's Ancient Mariner, this will hang around the LP candidates neck and may even ultimately hang the entire libertarian movement with them.
The Editorial Board at Libertarian Republican blog wishes to express our extreme disgust with those who claim to be "Libertarians" yet subscribe to such conspiratorialist views. These views are nothing less than reprehensible. And we wish to affirm that they in no way represent the views of the libertarian movement. We condemn them in the strongest terms possible, much as we would condemn Nazis, Murderous Communists, Racists like the KKK and other Hate Groups. It is a great shame that some Libertarian Party Presidential candidates have chosen to shame the movement by endorsing this Hate Group. -- Eric Dondero, Publisher
Good for Dondero, and the Libertarian candidates who have declined to sign onto the goofy pledge.
