Skip to comments.23 Ways of Poking Fun at Libertarians
Posted on 08/03/2013 6:35:31 AM PDT by Kaslin
The very first bit of anti-libertarian humor I ever posted was this clever video about the anarcho-capitalist paradise of Somalia.
I then shared two cartoons, one on libertarian ice fishing and the other showinglibertarian lifeguards.
That was followed by a very funny list of the 24 types of libertarians.
But I havent shared anything making fun of people like me since this think I do montage last year.
Thanks to Buzzfeed, however, we now have something new for our collection. They came up with 23 Libertarian Problems and here are two of my favorites from the list.

Identify a delusion or dishonesty in that post.
You are a bald faced liar.
You also don't seem to know that social conservatives created America, yet now, after you lefties having 50 years of glory, you think that pro-life and pro-marriage is wanting to impose a theological state.
You really seem to hate pre-1960s America.
I would agree with that to a point. The government/society does have an interest in recording marriages to prevent polygamy and protect a spouse's rights with respect to property and/or children in the event of a divorce or death.
“Whats your position on dope, condoms, gay marriage and abortion? Do we hit a quartet?”
Dope: Other than giving up liberties for the WOsDs, nothing thus far has been effective to prevent people from using them.
Position on condoms?: Okay, I like missionary...
gay marriage: see Leviticus ch 18 verse 22
Abortion: Utilized by poser conservatives to get elected, who then make concessions on everything else under the sun.
LOL, and waste more time on your childishness, no thanks.
Getting off the subject of the true libertarian agenda is the primary goal of the libertarians here.
That is why you ignore our posts, for instance 173.
So, you support abortion, contraception and dope?
You can’t identify a delusion or dishonesty in #174 because there aren’t any. I responded to #173 to the extent it had anything to do with me. You said I was here for a certain purpose. You were incorrect. I corrected you. That’s a recurring theme on these threads.
The homosexual agenda is high on the libertarian list, even here at FR the libertarians are pretty obsessed with it.
The libertarians have been joyful at their recent victories on homosexualizing the military and federal government and that gay marriage will become equal in America.
What is your position on contraception?
I know why you are here and what you enjoy about it.
You are not at DU trying to persuade liberals to move right and support conservative economics, you are at freerepublic trying to persuade conservatives to move left, and embrace social liberalism.
Just as this thread and many threads on freerepublic proves, libertarians are the commandos of the left, by using a vocabulary that mimics conservatism, they actually defend and promote the left's social agenda among conservatives.
The only place that you can find freepers expressing pro-homosexual support and open borders support, and even pro-choice views, is on the libertarian threads.
I support contraception being privately available, but I don’t believe that anyone should be forced to buy coverage which includes contraception.
If you want it, pay for it. I also believe that if a pharmacist or a pharmacy chooses not to stock or dispense it then that should be respected. If a customer wants it they can go to another store.
Personally, I’m a Catholic. I do not believe in contraception. Church sez so and I follow.
A none statement.
I’ve tried to do that at DU, but I always got tombstoned. I enjoy political and philosophical discussions, not to mention religion and football, because I find those topics to be interesting and informative. . Is thereme other secret enjoyment I get out of it? You seem to think so, so what is it?
I was just curious. I agree with you, and I would add that the Supreme Court decision making it a right (Griswold) is utterly insane. The Constitution is silent on the matter. That’s the case that got us where we are today.
One of the good things about freerepublic is that it is a conservative site, we are not here to debate liberal positions on social issues.
The reason libertarian threads are so strange, is that the libertarians have liberal positions that they want to push, but they have to soft pedal them and play games, so a thread that could be short, simple, and tight, can go on for days as the libers fight to promote what they won’t admit they are promoting, or even “personally” support.
All the wiliness, and lying, and evasion, yet attacking, makes for the creepiest posters we have.
As the older people here have pointed out, the Libertarianism of today is as far from the libertarianism of Reagan’s youth as the Democrat party of today is from that of Reagan’s younger years.
You claimed to know what I enjoyed about these types of discussions, above and beyond what I know about myself. What is it?
While you’re at it, you can also identify a leftwing social position I have pushed here. You said not to be evasive, so I expect a fairly straightforward answer.
I like how you used the L and l. The libertarian thinkers of Reagan’s formative years had very little to say on social issues. The pinkos hadn’t destroyed our culture back then.
I think that libertarianism doesn’t work as a political party. It’s best understood as a presumption against government. That presumption is rebuttable, but the bar is usually set pretty high. As a distinct political party, I think it pretty much has to fail. If for no other reason than open borders would bring in millions of statist voters that would end any hope of limiting government. I get all kinds of heat for bringing that up with the Reason crowd. If a role for government is acknowledged, then people will fall all along a continuum for where to draw the line. All forms of extremism seem to carry the seeds of their own destruction.
For a guy implying that he opposes the libertarian view on social issues and supports the social conservative positions and politics, you sure spend a lot of time arguing with the social conservatives.
In fact, you are clearly dedicated to it, devoted.
