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.
“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.
You're kinda sick @JackPMoore. Your GQ piece about @RandPaul should be deleted. Even IF u believe Rand is at fault in a dispute- shameful to attack a victim of violence & basically approve of it. And u know nothing of libertarianism. In fact it's too peaceful of an ideology for u

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.
New York Young Republican Leader Calls on President Trump to Immediately Fill Supreme Court Vacancy
Fill that seat.
In a statement released on September 19, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club called on President Donald Trump to immediately nominate a Supreme Court justice following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
It then urged the U.S. Senate, especially its Republican members, to confirm Trump’s potential nomination as soon as possible.
Because of the unstable nature of the 2020 election cycle, the U.S. will likely be faced with numerous legal questions about the voting process after election day in November. The Supreme Court will most assuredly have to make important decisions regarding the election’s validity during a time when there will be irregular voting patterns due to the pandemic.
For conservatives worried about the integrity of the presidential elections, getting the right Supreme Court justice nominated is crucial.
The NY Republican Club issued the following statement:
Heading into a tumultuous and highly contested presidential election, our nation requires a full bench to opine on legal questions should they arise in an election that has already presented novel issues due to the pandemic in voting and the election process. To preserve the integrity of our elections, a hallmark of healthy, functioning republics, we ask the president to exercise his constitutional duty.
BLP reached out to the President of the New York Young Republican Club Gavin Wax for his take on the recent Supreme Court vacancy. Wax commented:
As Ruth Bader Ginsburg said herself there is nothing unconstitutional about appointing a justice in the final year of a presidential term. The president should immediately nominate and the senate immediately confirm a conservative justice to the court per both of their election mandates.
The stakes are high right now in America.
A nominally conservative judiciary would at least place a handbrake on the Left’s social engineering fantasies.
In the long-term, nationalists will need to develop judicial networks that promote judges who uphold American values such as free speech and the right to bear arms, while working to strike down unconstitutional acts such as affirmative action and onerous anti-discrimination laws.
Rough times lie ahead, but in order to correct past errors, long-term planning and building of a solid nationalist infrastructure will be necessary to restoring America.
