New Hampshire Libertarians Court Republican Voters By Calling for an End to Civil Rights, Affirmative Action

The New Hampshire Libertarian Party is courting Republican voters on social media by calling for an end to the Civil Rights Act, the banishment of affirmative action, gutting the regulatory state, and cutting off public school funding.

They made the post on Twitter, which is a massive departure from the LP’s typical approach of playing to far-left socialists:

The New Hampshire LP’s outreach strategy has caused mixed reactions. Social justice warriors among the Libertarians were incredibly outraged and offended:

 

 

 

However, right-wing individuals were encouraged by this honest Libertarian outreach strategy that has not been seen since retired Texas Congressman Ron Paul ran for president in 2008 and 2012:

 

Liberty Conservative News has published articles urging libertarian activists to adopt national populism as the means to build an anti-establishment movement that can turn the dial toward freedom:

“Libertarians have generally been in a state of disarray since Ron Paul retired from Congress in January 2013. There have been considerable schisms within the libertarian movement in the intervening period as many have joined the Republican Party to support the rising Trump movement, while others have clung to their neoliberal roots by aligning themselves to globalist causes such as mass migration and multilateral trade.

The former understands where the political winds are blowing and the latter are teaming up with a political coalition that will end up stabbing them in the back. This is no hypothetical either. Former Obama administration CIA director John Brennan, like many of his colleagues on the liberal Left, went nuts after the January 6th storming of the Capitol.

In an interview on MSNBC in late January, Brennan stated that the Biden administration would take the following decisive steps to combat domestic extremism:

We are now looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed, are now moving in laser like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of the country and they gain strength and it brings together an unholy alliance frequently of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, Nativists, even libertarians.

Let’s face it. Libertarians have a better chance of partnering with the Populist Right to expose corporate corruption, push sound money, clamp down on wasteful spending, and end fruitless conflicts abroad.”

Unfortunately for libertarians who are actually principled supporters of the cause, the sentiments expressed by the New Hampshire Libertarians are far from the norm within the LP. They will probably be admonished for making this post, disavowed, and forced to apologize in no time for offending Leftist sensibilities.
