  1. Is this an open thread? Good.

    Last week, I said I believed in voluntary racial separation and am open to government race based policy. A lot of people said that I couldn’t be a libertarian.

    I’ve dug up some quotes from Murray Rothbard on the issue.

    He endorsed the findings of The Bell Curve as common sense.

    On the value of studying race/IQ issue, he wrote

    In that case, the intelligence argument will become useful to defend the market economy and the free society from ignorant or self-serving attacks. In short; racialist science is properly not an act of aggression or a cover for oppression of one group over another, but, on the contrary, an operation in defense of private property against assaults by aggressors.

    Rothbard even came out in favor of racial separation.

    We are now probably a lot more than two nations, and we had better start giving serious thought to national separation. To those who think that the main problem is restricting the number and types of immigration, the best answer is that such a policy is decades too late. We are already far more than one nation within the borders of the U.S.A., let alone worry about the immigrants. To greet the very raising of such questions with the mindless cry of “racism’ or “chauvinism’ misses the entire point.

    We might not be able any longer to bring back the Old Republic across the entire land area of the 50 states. But we may be able to bring it back in a substantial part of that land area.

    So was Murray Rothbard not a real Libertarian?

  2. You may be some type of libertarian, Dick. Big tent and all. What you are not is a decent human being.

    Fuck along, now.

  3. “Rothbard even came out in favor of racial separation.”

    Does that mean we have to cut Obama in half?

  4. Does that mean we have to cut Obama in half?

    We can divide him into pieces and reassemble him to make TWO Obamas!

  5. Hey Richard!

    I’m fucking your mother.

    She says hello.

  6. Dick, how can you expect anyone to take you seriously? You seem convinced that human beings are collectivist in nature, simply slaves to their genes. Of course, you seem to think that white people have better genes, too. Where, I wonder, do Jews fit into your very narrow world view?

    A “libertarian”? Usually this means in favor of Liberty, which, unfortunately for you, doesn’t include the Liberty to shit on others because you don’t like their perceived heritage.

    Perhaps you are simply misunderstood, but I seriously doubt it. Your fixation with “race” seems hardly what most would call “libertarian”, but I concede that even Ron Paul has a problem with Jews.

    “Racial separation” is fine when there is no coercion involved. From the tone of what I have read of yours, you have no problem coercing others based upon the melanin in their skin. This doesn’t make you a a “libertarian” but a racist shit bag.

    So, in the spirit of Reason commentors

    Fuck off Lonewacko Dick.

  7. This is hilarious – now “Richard Hoste” is whining about his reception here. Oh boo hoo, poor little white nationalist pseudoscientist.

    Maybe Peter Bagge can do a cartoon on HBDers (that is, pseudoscientific racists).

    “Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism” – Ayn Rand

  8. Was Pat Buchanan one of your biggest influences?

  9. I see you had to beat that fellow with a bludgeon becuase you are not smart enough to use a rapier.
