In the book I am working on, the description of how I shifted from libertarianism to White Nationalism was a long, gradual process, which I cover in considerable detail.
Those of you who have been with me for a long time, will find it unsurprising that the name Adam Kokesh came up several times in telling that tale.
Adam and I ran for the United States House of Representatives at the same time in 2010. Adam’s campaign was considerably more successful than mine, in that although neither of us have ever sponsored a major piece of legislation, Adam at least made the ballot. He had obtained the coveted endorsement of Dr. Ron Paul, which was a big boost to the already substantial reputation he had built for himself, as an activist with a group called Iraq Veterans Against the War.
In the nine years since then, Adam and I have had a pretty interesting relationship. His YouTube notoriety was a large part of my inspiration for becoming a content producer. At times, the casual observer might have thought we were best friends, and at others, mortal enemies. We have taken shots at eachother in our content and on social media, then gone right back to collaborating on content together, as if none of those things had ever happened. When I thought he had earned criticism, I was not at all hesitant to provide it, and when I thought he was being attacked unfairly, I came to his defense.
Most recently, Adam and I were invited to debate one another back in January of 2017, at a live event hosted by the Rothbardian Circle in Miami. We tackled the subject of immigration, and the broader merits of diversity. Whatever one’s view of things, all seemed to agree it made for an entertaining and thought provoking exchange.
Given Adam’s Jewish ancestry, it is perhaps no surprise that we have grown more distant since I was plastered all over the news as a famous Nazi.
We have not completely lost contact, however.
I have remained subscribed to his email list, and it is one of few newsletters that I still read. Having had him in my phone’s contacts the entire time, I realized he was also my Telegram contact after I became a frequent user of that application. So, occasionally, we shoot eachother a message via that medium, when one of us comes across the other’s radar.
Adam was fresh in my mind from my work on the book, when I saw this Rasmussen Poll titled “Surprising Number Say Third-Party Presidential Vote Likely in 2020“.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters say they are likely to vote for someone other than President Trump or the Democratic presidential nominee in next year’s election. That includes 22% who are Very Likely to do so.
Adam is currently seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination for President of the United States in next year’s all important election. He is calling for an “orderly dissolution” of the United States Federal Government, and calls his campaign the “American Referendum”. Though I remain reluctant to endorse his candidacy, for obvious, and not so obvious reasons, I find some aspects of what he says to be quite appealing.
In the somewhat unlikely event that he were to succeed in this effort, Adam’s plan would not impose anarchy throughout the continent of North America. As I understand it, his program would, essentially, leave it to the individual state and local governments to chart their own course for the future. If California wants to have open borders and a generous welfare state, they can destroy themselves in this fashion without dragging New Hampshire down with them. If one geographic region wanted to band together as a federation of all White ethnostates, President Kokesh would not send troops to stop them. If one region wanted to adopt high tech direct democracy, and another instead chose a hereditary monarchy, neither would meet opposition from the Kokesh administration, save for perhaps some verbal or written criticism.
As a purely political matter, Trump supporters might stand to benefit from Adam obtaining the Libertarian Party’s nomination.
The conventional thinking, is that Libertarian candidates deprive Republicans of votes which would otherwise have gone their way, if not for the Libertarian’s presence on the ballot. Issues like taxes, regulation, and gun rights, are largely shared between the two parties, and since Libertarians are more concerned with ideas than political power, they can afford to take firmer positions on such issues than their Republican counterparts. This makes Libertarians an appealing “protest vote” for hard line single issue voters of the Right.
We are fortunate to live in times when conventional thinking does a poor job of predicting the future, however.
Firstly, one doubts many prior Trump supporters would defect to support Adam.
The nationalist fervor stirred by Trump, hardly leaves GOP voters anxious to break up the Union. While many Republicans might consider the dissolution of the federal government a fine alternative to Democrat rule, they also know that Democrat rule would be the far more likely outcome, of widespread defections from the GOP. Anyone who voted for Trump would likely perceive Adam’s message as being far to the Left of their liking, and Trump’s warnings of “Radical Democrats” trying to destroy the country, would only be confirmed by Adam’s proposal to do so formally.
Adam’s Left leaning tone would be far more appealing to Left wing extremists, than anyone Right of center. The Left’s total and perpetual panic over the Trump presidency, should have a substantial number of them rethinking their comfort level, with allowing the federal government to control every aspect of the human condition. They are certainly long overdue for a reminder on the merits of federalism, and the prospect of Trump’s second term could make dissolving the union seem appealing by comparison, especially given how seriously they seem to take his jokes about staying in power indefinitely.
Joe Biden is rapidly losing support among Democrat primary voters, despite all the fake polling designed to make him look like a serious candidate. This leaves Elizabeth Warren the apparent front runner for the Democratic nomination, but her insane economic ideas are quickly polarizing our financial oligarchs, who are in no way fooled by her fuzzy math. Her years of defrauding the Affirmative Action racket with the fake feather headdress, cannot help to endear her to the “Woke” wing of the Party, and with just three months to go until the Iowa caucuses, the power brokers are in full on panic mode, seeking an alternative to take on Trump.
This disarray has prompted Mike Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, to contemplate re-entering the race. He filed the requisite papers to run, just before the first deadline in Alabama, on Friday. Bloomberg has said he would spend $100,000,000 of his own money on a presidential bid, and a war chest like that could make James Fields a formidable opponent.
Now, you and I know better, of course, but to the average social justice warrior, Mike Bloomberg is one of those “old White men” they hate so much, and he is terribly unlikely to run on a platform of “Jews are not White”. His incredible wealth is the symbol of everything a communist hates, and his attempt to buy the election would leave any hard line Leftist ideologue, looking for a suitable “protest vote”. Such fears drove Hillary Clinton to call Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein “Russian Assets”, out of concern that they might seek to run as independent or third party candidates.
Given Adam’s prior employment with the Russia Today (RT) TV news channel, this would be sure to spawn infinite conspiracy theories, and hilarious Leftist hand-wringing.
Then there is the impact on Libertarian Party politics, which, though not of obvious importance to electoral outcomes, do impact the fringes of political discourse, and with that, the Overton Window.
Justin Amash defected from the GOP this year, in a pathetic attempt to stand out as a principled opposition to Trumpism. Given his libertarian roots, many have speculated this was in preparation to seek the Libertarian Party’s nomination to run against Trump in 2020, and Amash has expressed an interest in doing so.
Whoever wins the LP nomination, it cannot be Justin Amash. He must have his political career completely destroyed by this subversive activity, and be forced to fade into total humiliating obscurity, serving only as a warning to others.
John McAfee created a crappy anti-virus program back before there was such a thing as the Internet. He subsequently became a cryptocurency celebrity by investing some portion of the money he made from this into Bitcoin, before most people had heard of it. This combined with his choice to marry a black prostitute, has made him a very popular figure in libertarian circles.
He seems unlikely to win the nod however, since at the 2016 convention, he told the almost entirely White male audience, that they “should be ashamed” of themselves for their skin color and genitalia. While it may be helpful to our cause that we see White men flee the LP in favor Pinochetan Helicopterism, McAfee must be made to pay a steep political cost for this attack on the master demographic.
Vermin Supreme has announced his candidacy. Although he is a talented actor, well known for his creative stunts, his policy credentials render him fundamentally unserious as a candidate. He will have zero impact on the political discourse, even within the LP, and will only serve to solidify their reputation as a political joke.
Arvin Vohra has taken an admirable stance against political correctness. He even went so far as to be a guest on the Radical Agenda, during Stage 3 of the pogrom. If I was trying to salvage the Libertarian Party, Arvin might have my support in doing so. Unfortunately for him, I have no such designs.
The Left’s successful efforts to hijack the libertarian movement, and with it, the Libertarian Party, likely constituted the largest single factor in the rise of the Alt Right. While it was painful to watch them destroy this thing I once cared so deeply for, I am now quite happy to see Leftists further infected with impotent libertarian ideas. The further Left the LP drifts, the less impact they will have on Republican electoral victories, and the more they will deprive the Democrats of ideologically driven activists.
Perhaps most importantly, a rivalry between the Libertarian and Green Parties, to see who can win over a greater percentage of the transgender vote, will make for ceaseless amusement, and at the end of the day, what good is politics without an opportunity to ridicule the mentally ill?
I have not made myself intimately familiar with the other possible Libertarian candidates, but I will operate on the safe assumption that they are all Left wing, and that they all hate Trump.
So, which Left winger shall it be?
I think we could do a lot worse than Kokesh. He has a broad base of existing support. He has talent as a showman, and has shown an extraordinary willingness to take risks. These characteristics will be necessary for the Party’s nominee to draw attention to himself, during an election that is sure to be one of the most watched in recent history.
And of course, the Nazis can point to his platform and say “See? I told you the Jews were trying to bring down the government!”
Again, this is not a formal endorsement. Just a fun thing to think about, and of course, quality audio entertainment, when Adam joins me on the pogrom as my guest. This coming Monday, November 11th, at 5:00pm US Eastern time.
