Props to Reason's devoted yet fickle special friend, Justin Raimondo, proprietor of the always-entertaining Antiwar.com. When he's not linking to our stuff favorably, he's coughing up the sort of noxious phlegm you expect from a guy whose author photo prominently features a cigarette:
God, how I hate that magazine, which falsely claims to be "libertarian." There's hardly a lie spread by the War Party that they aren't willing to swallow: as far as editor Nick Gillespie and his crew are concerned, as long as they have the right to do the drugs of their choice and live out their "alternative" lifestyles, little else matters. Could anything be more repulsive?
Exactly what lie(s) by the War Party we've been swallowing is unclear (the proximate cause of this blast was Chuck Freund's recent col about the BBC's bias). As is the question of what could be more repulsive than championing tolerance for alternative lifestyles (there are only alternative lifestyles, when you get down to it; you'd think a San Francisco-based fella like Justin would know that better than anyone). We just may have to spend some hard time conjuring up answers to these points.
Thanks, Justin, for giving us a couple more reasons to get up tomorrow morning. Next time you're in town, the drinks are half-priced.
