YouTuber “ThatGuyT” on Libertarianism, Nationalism and the Alt-right

Rebel Staff

As the mainstream media continues its slow death, Youtube commentators are increasingly becoming more popular sources of news. 

Watch my interview with ThatGuyT, a Youtube Skeptic and self-described libertarian anti-feminist atheist anarcho-capitalist.

We discussed the growing strength of nationalism, the decline of libertarianism, and the emergence of the Alt-Right.

I wouldn’t say libertarians don’t understand people. I’d say they understand human nature more because they know what power does to most if not all people.
By the way where is the rest of this interview, it seemed cutoff

Dan Mancuso; Well said. Btw, that self censorship is dangerous for the culture. I practise mine by holding back only in someone else’s home. At my place or on neutral soil, look out.

I’m guessing all the libertarians are on their way to canada because there are no “alt- right” here and further, trudeau won’t allow it!

Dan Mancuso, well said. You articulated the position much better than I did.

MAURICE POTVIN;
You make a very pertinent and important point:
“That depends entirely on the issue”

Identity politics and the rest of the BS poison being foisted on us all from those lefty/Globalists, is in fact forcing everyone into those little boxes you mention – even in our own minds – through osmosis or attrition.
It’s like that concept of self-censorship creeping in, unnoticed; or an unwillingness to discuss ‘politics and religion’, socially – out of fear of not fitting in or fear of outright attack; and all the other innumerable ways ‘the system’ has of gently, or not so gently, leading and goading us all into this homogeneous mind set.
The main problem I have always had with Libertarian-ism, is the stance on homosexual marriage sanctioned by the state and abortion on demand. I understand the very sound concept of allowing people choice – but I never threw away my moral absolutes or traded them in for moral relativism and there fore never stopped the practice of believing homosexuality and murdering babies – whether state sanctioned or not – was WRONG! Yes I made a value judgement! So sue me…
For me, my take politically on any issue has been and will continue to be entirely dependent on the issue, and will be judged on it’s own merits!

This identity politics (meaning that we all belong with a particular group and must fit nicely into a particular box) I believe is very destructive for a vibrant society. The only identity that I unreservedly cling to is that of Christianity. Other than that, I’m simply a seeker after objective truth… as I think everyone should be. And, of course, sometimes we all get it wrong, but if we remain open to that possibility then we can correct course and continue our pursuit of objective truth. Those who are defined by “isms” of any kind tend to lean towards cult-like fanaticism and become completely incapable of empathizing anyone else’s point of view. I saw this very clearly in the public sector trade Union when I worked for the BC Forest Service. It was as if the Union activists had their “born again” experience, and the brother/sisterhood of the union gave their lives meaning and purpose. And, of course, their position was devoid of logic, common sense or true compassion for others, but it was very seductive. I know the points of view aired on this site are primarily right of center or libertarian, but if anyone would ask me where I stand, I would have to say “That depends entirely on the issue”. It’s true that I usually lean more toward the Conservatives than the Liberals or the NDP, but that doesn’t have anything to do with right wing or left wing, it’s simply because the Liberals and the NDP are pretty much always wrong… not necessarily in their identification of the problems, but in their solutions. So I don’t identify with any ism, and I don’t think anyone else should either. Of course, that’s just my opinion. What other people do is none of my business.

I’m a nationalist and libertarian, there is no conflict. I identify as a Canadian – nationalism is a cure for racism, sectarianism, ghettoization and fractious culture.

BTW: Ask Mr. T where he got that paratroop AK47 on the closet shelF It appears to be in locked and loaded condition – very bad form – hope there’s no kids in the house.

Jay i wish we could do an actual accounting of who supports what, the left would be damn surprised at how many minorities and gays and women do not support their ignorance and insulting pandering.
