Worse, after six weeks my revamped/updated/ Secession.net in Wordpress STILL looks like this. With a one sentence intro.
But I've been dealing with disgust/frustration about the "invasion of the body snatchers" of "alt-right" and "white nationalist" types into the Libertarian Party, especially over the last 6 months or so; they came complete with threats of violence against those who oppose them (mostly in the state of Florida where they took over a county party). Happily, their invasion has been resisted and the LP finally told them to resign (quotes in Part II).
This invasion is not as bad as when the "black bloc" strategy of doing property damage and fighting with cops invaded and DID take over "progressive" movements in 2000. There was barely any resistance at all! I was one of the resisting "peace nazis" and later wrote an ebook about it all: "The Return of Street Fightingman".
This violence only aggravated and encouraged violence by "alt-right" guys - egged on by the seriously demented Donald J. Trump, of course. So now half of them are becoming out and out white nationalists. You create what you hate evidently. And we saw the disgusting torch marches and bigoted chants, the street fighting between left and right, and the death of one woman in Charlottesville, VA last weekend as the result.
Of course, it's mostly males, left and right, looking for any excuse to prove their manhood. (You too, Bernie Bros.) Anyway, I'll just share some of my MEMES and a few comments below. You can check out my public posts at Facebook/CarolMoore1776 And those are just a tiny sampling of all I've written on various closed and open FB groups. "I'm carol and I'm a FB addict..." Tomorrow I'll practice self-control, I promise!!
And then the "alt-right' phrase started being applied to some of his fellow travelers who were very disruptive at a couple state libertarian events this winter.
Then in May the alt-right created and operated "LP Veteran Caucus" went nuts because the LP Vice-Chair Arvin Vohra dared to point out angrily that those who joined the military just for the job and benefits, knowing they'd be sent to kill innocent people, were little more than murders. That's when I discovered and exposed the kind of crap some of them were posting at their FB page. Like this (removed after a couple of us made a big stink).
Continued Part II
