LOL, now they can go to the Internet and have a million right-wingers in front of the microphone brainwash them into believing X or Y. Same bullshit, different kind of shit.

Well, when the universities are dominated by left-wing nuts brainwashing millions of students, I guess the right-wing needed a voice somewhere.

From LewRockwell.com "The Washington Independent today chacterizes LRC as among the high-traffic “far-right” powerhouses of the web. Powerhouse, yes, far-right, no, unless one’s definition of far right includes anti-nationalist anarcho-capitalism. Notes the article, in part, “Human Events had 1.4 million [unique visitors in July], LewRockwell.com had 1.1 million, CNSNews.com had around 532,000, and The American Spectator had around 358,000.” On the other hand, neocon David Frum’s site, praised as “more refined” than LRC, barely registers, much to the article’s sorrow."

People who stand for individual liberty do not like to be labeled right-wing.

No, you know what happened, Josh? The right wingers got peeled away in the perish-or-publish world that is academia because of their CONTINUAL use of sophistry, propaganda, and illogical argument to support their arguments. That sort of crap doesn't float in academia.

Again, intellectual masturbation on a massive scale."

I'd get used to it, because you are. Liberty is not individual, and individuality is not liberty. Those who believe in "individual liberty" are those in favor of liberty from the right wing.

I'm glad this guy provides ZERO statistics to support his position.

You see, this is the type of bullshit fuckhead that Kucinich denounced.
