Babe or Bigot?

Ilana Mercer is a smart, attractive, libertarian journalist from South Africa. She runs Barely a Blog, writes for WorldNetDaily, and a particular website called… VDARE.

VDARE takes it’s name from Virginia Dare, who was supposedly the first White person born in America. While they may appear to promote Anglo-American values (i.e., those outlined in the Magna Carta) they seem to be reserved for White Anglo-Saxons only.

Their logo is even of a white deer. Need I mention she has called their founder, Peter Brimelow, a “patriot” on the issue of immigration?

As you may have seen by now, despite being a Jewish supporter of Israel and the daughter of the late Rabbi Ben Isaacson, some of her articles tend to have possible racist overtones. Here are some examples…

-She claims Whites “civilized” South Africa and fears “Black rule”.

-After the death of Mexican rapist, José Medellín, she gloated, “cue the Mariachi band”.

-Her solution to beat back radical Islam? “Bomb Them With Bimbos”.

Now, I happen to agree with her that it's absurd to call Islam the "religion of peace” (Islam is actually Arabic for “submission to Allah”), but why condemn the entire faith?

And last but not least…when it comes to America’s financial state, she thinks “Mad Machmoud” is “saner” than the “Bailout Bastards”.

Apparently, I’m not the only libertarian who’s concerned about Mercer’s antics…

In 2003, she accused the libertarian think tank, the Future of Freedom Foundation’s Sheldon Richman of supporting the Institute for Historical Review (IHR). The IHR are an anti-historical, anti-Semitic organization that engages in Holocaust denial.

If Ilana is not a bigot and is simply saying such things for the shock value, she has a lot of explaining to do. And let’s hope she doesn’t agree with fellow VDARE and WorldNetDaily contributor, Pat Buchanan, that Hitler was a pacifist.

I Was A 9/11 Truther (How the Movement Decieved Me & Other Libertarians)

The story begins In the summer of 2006. I was tired of the Bush Administration and their "Neo-Conservative" attitude. Moderate Republicanism/the libertarianism of Judge Andrew Napolitano began to interest me. Then I was turned on to a particular website (which shall not be endorsed by the sane) by a relative that shook the foundation of my values.

Countless hours were spent listening to the website's radio show. Within a couple of weeks, I was convinced that “9/11 Was An Inside Job” after viewing a popular documentary (since debunked) and stumbling across the ‘Project For the New American Century: Rebuilding America’s Defenses’ document at This conspiracy binge would last nearly a year. (After being a member of the website, I ask, "the question is..." where did my $ go?)

With any truth present, there was faulty interpretation through premature conclusions linking world events to "The New World Order". Any facts were obscured by thousands of lies and delusions. Such is the deceptive nature of conspiracy theorists and their sensational approach.

All of a sudden it was like I was bi-polar, loving the Catholic Church & Judaism while criticizing the Vatican and the State of Israel’s relationship with the United States. Strangely, it became apparent that some Jewish individuals believed in "The New World Order", too. Two examples include a former concert promoter and the creator of the board game Scruples. If only they would have read about the literature used during the Dreyfuss trial.

Being a libertarian at heart, I took the “alliance with none” principle quite literally. But my (then-) opposition to Zionism unintentionally justified Holocaust denial. Fortunately, I never denied the Holocaust, even at that time in my life, but this sympathy extended to Iranian PM Machmoud Achmedenijad.

Achmedenijad is something of a David Duke of Iran. He spews hatred while putting on a friendly grin to fool the uninformed public. And the uninformed are the very targets of propaganda. As you may know, propaganda can hide a racist agenda like that of David Duke's website.

Duke is a supporter of Ron Paul, whose libertarian credentials are questionable. The same Ron Paul is known for writing less-than-flattering depictions of blacks in the newsletter, the American Free Press (AFP). Shame on him. The anecdote to the Paul controversy may be Wayne Allyn Root, a Jewish-American who is running for Vice President with Bob Barr for the Libertarian Party. But if you're like me, you may not be voting in this election at all.
