    many Libertarians display Nazi sympathies, and most belong to one or another white nationalist movement that gives them the relief and a substitute for the authority they clandestinely crave.

    •  I don't think this is factually correct. (0+ / 0-)

      Most Libertarians are not race-nationalists - neither among the registered members of that party or the general population of ideological fellow-travelers.  However, it is true that race-nationalists typically have anti-government sensibilities.

          I have to play devil's advocate and say that kind of thing sounds like the Ayers nonsense.  Race-nationalists are generally anti-government (so long as they don't control it) so there is plenty of overlap with Libertarians, and I don't ignore the influence that has on their political culture, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything intrinsic.

            but political tendencies shift, and right now they are clearly shifted to the extreme right. Anyway, I wouldn't be saying things with no evidence.
