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.
WATCH: General Flynn SPEAKS OUT In First Interview Since Pardon: “President Trump Won This Election”
Flynn is speaking out.
Former White House National Security Advisor and retired US Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn spoke out on the topic of improprieties in the 2020 presidential election on Saturday, speaking out in his first public remarks since receiving a presidential pardon from President Donald Trump. Flynn was pardoned from charges of lying to the FBI, criminal allegations that the Department of Justice has since renounced after the revelation of pervasive FBI misconduct in a series of interrogations Flynn was subject to.
Lieutenant General Flynn expressed his confidence that President Donald Trump secured an overwhelming electoral college victory in the 2020 presidential election, stating that he believes President Trump won 350 electoral college votes.
“He’s going to win Pennsylvania. He’s going to win Arizona. He’s going to win Georgia. He’s going to win Nevada. He’s going to win Michigan.”
Lt. Gen. Flynn went on to cite discrepancies occurring with election software and hardware supplied by Dominion, a company that has become a source of controversy for its contracts to provide elections systems utilized in many US states. He called reports of a Biden victory the “greatest fraud in American history.”
Flynn argued that the mass-scale political censorship utilized by Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter constitute a form of election interference.
“I just cannot believe the media and the censorship that is going on… Look at what Twitter is doing to the President of the United States of America. It’s infuriating to me, and an abomination to the First Amendment.”
“The President is being censored by US companies… Think about that. I’m at a loss when I talk about it. That has to stop being allowed… How dare they do that to the President of the United States.”
Flynn didn’t speak on the circumstances of his pardon, instead opting to focus on the political crisis facing the United States as citizens face the prospect of a disputed and unclear election.
“I’m not frustrated. I’m determined.”
