Today’s Tom Woods Letter, which all the influential people receive every weekday. Be one of them.
A flyer circulating at the University of Kansas warns people about “neo-Nazis,” adding that such people often like to conceal their true identity by using other terms and phrases to describe themselves.
Therefore, the flyer went on, be on the watch for people calling themselves “anarcho-capitalists” or using the phrase “Make America Great Again.”
So if you’re an anarcho-capitalist — which means you absolutely oppose the initiation of violence — you are actually a neo-Nazi.
(Because we all know how philosophically opposed to violence the Nazis were.)
This particular inanity is brought to you by the folks who are convinced they are living in a white supremacist society. (The term “white supremacy” sure underwent a massive redefinition in 2016, didn’t it?)
But if this is really a “white supremacist” society, why would white supremacists have to conceal their identities by calling themselves something else?
Why would being a genuine white supremacist be career suicide?
Why would so many millions of nonwhites be clamoring to enter a society allegedly based on racial apartheid?
The other day, Tucker Carlson interviewed a professor from the University of Connecticut who pushes the America-is-a-white-
Yes, we are, the professor replied, nonsensically.
By that reasoning, reversing this nonwhite immigration would harm the cause of white supremacy, and that would make Donald Trump a major foe of white supremacy.
The professor didn’t follow his reasoning down that road.
Unfortunately, these people are so irrational and bizarre that I can’t parody them. So they’re taking the one fun, redeeming quality the left once had — susceptibility to satire — and ruining it for me.
The whole thing reminds me of one of the great characters in all of literature: Wonko the Sane, from Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. Wonko feared for the world’s sanity, so he referred to the entire world (except his residence) as Inside the Asylum and his own residence as Outside the Asylum.
If you’d like to step Outside the Asylum for a bit, join me as a supporting listener of the Tom Woods Show and among all the other goodies, we’ll welcome you into the Tom Woods Show Elite — my private group that’s as far Outside the Asylum as you can get.
The way forward:
