The anarchist Darryl Perry has chosen a Muslim running mate...
Two points I'm going to make in order to continue with this rant:
1) I don't actually care that he chose a Muslim, in fact I think it's lovely to have a person of faith as the nominee, the Libertarian Party is not openly cheery to religious individuals in the party itself. I think this is a great opportunity to work to develop inroads within the Muslim community instead of burning them down. All we hear on Fox News is the usual "we need to reform it!" But do you here the Islamic community doing anything about it? No, because all the conservatives wanna do is mass surveillance of mosques and deport them, all while the Democrats are chill with full on Sharia Law and head chopping because "tolerance ya'll". The way I see it, Will Coley, while I don't agree with him on a lot of things, makes some good points, and if he wants to convert hard core jihadists into peace loving libertarians, I say put him in front of a crowd and let him have at it. If the results produce more peace, whose left to be angry?
2) I know that Darryl Perry won't be the Libertarian nominee, but on the offshoot chance he is, I think it would be funny as Hell. Can you imagine the commercials that would come from this? The Anarchist and the Muslim running against the Republican moron and the Democrat moron is sketch comedy material that would write itself. Think of how priceless that would be!
So finally, I'm not going to go into a long philosophical talk about how anarchism and classical liberalism are not the same and why a Muslim should never be President of the United States- I'll leave that one for Ben Carson when he's not combing Trump's hair- this is to small of a pit stop in electoral history to really get worked up about.
What I'm hoping is that perhaps Coley will continue to practice what he preaches because the fact is this, every country runs by a country is an authoritarian nation hostile to everybody whose not a Muslim. What I hope he does is continue to speak the message of liberty and help Muslim communities become more vocal about the problem of jihad.
