John McAfee, Richard Lynn, and Libertarian Shame


During his concession speech, former Libertarian Party candidate for president, John McAfee, noted that we should be ashamed of the fact that well over 90% of libertarians are white.

Libertarians are so zealous to see the spread of liberty and the reduction of state power, and to place the blame at our feet is, frankly, ignorant.

This is the reason there is such resistance to accepting the truth.’

Not wanting to hurt any ‘feelies’ has not just caused academic institutions to provide their students safe-spaces filled with posters of puppies, sheltering them from the real world; they’ve been safe-spacing us all from the facts!
