GQ: Sen. Rand Paul deserved to be violently assaulted for being Libertarian

Published

In an article titled “Rand Paul Sounds Like the Worst Guy to Have as a Neighbor” published by men’s magazine GQ on Tuesday, they essentially claimed that the senator’s assault was justified as he is a Libertarian.

Paul was attacked by his neighbor, 59-year-old retired doctor Rene Boucher, Friday giving the senator five broken ribs and lacerations on his lungs. It turned out that the altercation was due to the senator’s neighbor being upset about landscaping.

The incident is being investigated by both the Capitol Police and the FBI. Assaulting a member of Congress is a federal crime, so it is unlikely to stay a local charge. The assailant is likely to face felony assault or federal assault on a member — both of which carry significant penalties.

Though the nature of the incident was serious, GQ columnist Jack Moore came in with a hot take about how Libertarians are a problem for homeowners.

Moore wrote:

“So, let’s read between the lines a bit here. Rand Paul is an asshole neighbor. He bought a house in a neighborhood that has certain rules with regard to lawns, and he decided that he doesn’t need to follow those rules because of his belief in ‘property rights’ that don’t actually exist. This is, at its core, the problem with libertarianism. Libertarians don’t want to follow the rules that we as a society have agreed upon, because they feel those rules step on their freedoms. And sometimes they might even be right, but that doesn’t mean that they are above those rules and can do whatever they want.”

To his credit, at least Moore went on to admit that “one of the problems with Democrats is we’ve never met government oversight that we didn’t like.”

The senator is not a member of the Libertarian Party, but the leader of the Republican Party’s Liberty Conservative wing.

It seems unlikely that Moore and his fellow Democrats would take kindly to the right victim blaming if it had been one of their own that was assaulted.

Yet, less than one year later it seems that the “it’s okay to punch a Nazi” meme is now even extending to Libertarians.

It looks like that “slippery slope” everyone warned about may be coming true faster than anyone expected.

STALKERS: Black Lives Matter Returns to Home of St. Louis Couple After Armed Confrontation

It’s harassment at this point.

Published

on

Protestors of the Black Lives Matter movement returned to the premises of the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey on Saturday, a Saint Louis couple who confronted rioters of the movement who trespassed near their property last week. The McCloskeys had been peacefully armed on their own property, but nonetheless became the targets of a left-wing hate campaign for refusing to bow in submission to the threatening rioters.

The crowd of ‘protestors’ appeared to refrain from trespassing during Saturday’s harassment of the couple, instead chanting taunts in the direction the McCloskey home from behind a wall gating off the private community in which they live.

A protestor of the mob recounted his grievances with the couple, castigating them for insufficient support of the previous trespassing rioters.

They love black lives for what, but they got a gate? They installed a new gate… But they’re supporters of Black Lives Matter? They thought we was an angry mob, but they support BLM? They said we was gone go into his house, kill him, enslave [unintelligible] and his dog…

A new fence appears to have been installed around the McCloskey home after the confrontation, and the house is being protected by a team of private security agents.

It’s somewhat curious that the McCloskeys claim to support the movement after the harassment they’ve faced at the hands of the movement, with a previous press release the couple issued only condemning the rioters they faced off in half-hearted terms.

Saint Louis Democrat Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner has confirmed she’s “investigating” the couple for merely possessing guns within the confines of their own property, insinuating that they were somehow threatening peaceful protestors after they instructed trespassing rioters to depart from private property. It’ll be difficult to find an argument from criminally charging the couple for the most fundamental and non-violent self-defense behavior available, but that won’t stop the partisan liberal.
