Augustus Sol Invictus, a Florida attorney who received extensive media coverage for his 2016 campaign for the Libertarian Party’s nomination for U.S. Senate, posted the following as the fourth newsletter for The Revolutionary Conservative. Invictus gave IPR permission to republish.
I am proud to announce that my son, Cesare Zagreus Invictus, was born this morning in the Waxhaws, just a stone’s throw from where Andrew Jackson was born in South Carolina. On this day in history, the Americans began shelling the British in Boston (1776); Texas declared its independence from Mexico (1836); and Rutherford Hayes, who would end the military occupation of the South, was declared President of the United States (1877). Today is an auspicious day indeed, and we thank God for his safe delivery.
Yesterday morning I formally declared my opposition to the leadership of the National Libertarian Party. In an open letter to the Chair, I noted the leftward shift of the Party and the unacceptable development of the Party’s alliance with the communists. You may view the letter online and watch the Weekly Address discussing it.
The Libertarian Party has long been sliding to the Left. It seems the days of focusing on resisting police militarization at home and foreign wars abroad are a thing of the past; now we focus on LGBTTQQIAAP rights, marijuana legalization, and a host of other left-wing social programs. Ron Paul is now a racist hatemonger, a relic of an embarrassingly reactionary past of the libertarian movement; Gary Johnson and Bernie Sanders are our icons now.
One would have to be willfully blind not to see this trend in the Libertarian Party. The only question is whether Nicholas Sarwark and the rest of the leadership caused this situation deliberately – or whether they were simply ineffective at preventing it.
In any case, Mr. Sarwark came out in defense of the antifa just a few weeks ago. When this communist gang shut down a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley, Mr. Sarwark said that it was “understandable.” We are still waiting to hear whether it was “understandable” when the Antifa attacked our libertarian supporters in Portland and Vancouver last year. It seems strange that the Chair of the Libertarian Party would defend the group attacking libertarians instead of condemning them.
But enough about that. We mentioned in our last Newsletter that we would be broadcasting the first episode of Guerrilla Radio. This episode, titled “Armed Struggle,” aired Tuesday, the 28th of February, in remembrance of the raid in Waco by the ATF and FBI in 1993. An archive of the broadcast is now available as well.
We are still fundraising for Operation Leonidas, our journalistic project documenting the decline and fall of Western Civilization. I appeared earlier this week on Liberty Machine News with Richard Heathen to talk about the project. We have our camera and a few hundred dollars; we still need two laptops and travel costs. You can donate to the project or help buy supplies directly from our Amazon Wish List.
Those are all the updates we have for you this week. Until next time…
Libertas et Imperium,
Augustus Invictus, Esq.
