The common threat between mass shooters, Islamic terrorists, and the radical left – they’re authoritarians. There are two sides to the world – either you believe in using force and violence to advance your beliefs, or you don’t. Those who claim they aren’t either authoritarian or libertarian, are just failing to consistently apply the principles that MOST Americans actually believe in.
A mass shooter in Texas took the lives of at least 26 individuals. He committed himself to using force as a means to his ends. Some reports rumor that he may be a member of Antifa, others say he is a recent convert to Islam. Either way – he believed in used force in advancing his beliefs.
Rand Paul’s neighbor attacked him over the weekend, causing scratches and bruises to the face, as well as five broken ribs. This was someone who believed that using violence to advance his beliefs was justifiable.
People wonder why the left and radical Islam stand on the same side, citing their differences in their treatment of women. They agree, however, in using violence as a means to an end. You are either libertarian or authoritarian.
