I just got off a conference call with Weekly Filibuster and LPKY chair Ken Moellman a little bit ago.
8 of 12 exec comm members participated in the preceding call, which we were not on. Moellman relayed that, although the LPKY is considering withdrawing its endorsement, it is not ready to do so at this time, and that they will have another call about it Monday night.
He expressed that it is hard to get a quorum given that LPKY exec comm members have different schedules, and that they have received calls from LPHQ and LNC. He also said there would be possible consequences for other candidates if Landham is unendorsed. However, he said he believes the party will be on the ballot regardless.
In a pair of interviews on The Weekly Filibuster Wednesday and Friday, Sonny Landham expressed support for genocide against Arabs and Muslims, whom he called repeatedly, “camel dung shovellers”, “camel jockeys” and “ragheads.” He also called for an end to all immigration from Arab and Muslim nations, nationalization of businesses which employ “illegal” immigrants, and nationalization of rental property of landlords who rent to them.
Other opinions which Mr. Landham expressed in those interviews include: high oil prices are a form of “terrorism,” support for the trade union activities of Eugene Debs, John Lewis and Jimmy Hoffa, and a call for economic nationalism and protectionism, particularly of the steel industry. Landham said that the federal government should reorganize the economy as a partnership between unions and corporations while erecting barriers against the international flow of goods and labor and using total war – including weapons of mass destruction – to acquire resources it considers “vital” on behalf of its corporate-trade union-military-industrial axis.
Landham also defended his role in producing a video for the Council of Conservative Citizens and said the message of the Libertarian Party is “States Rights Now, States Rights Tomorrow, and States Rights Forever,” evoking a famous line from George Wallace’s inaugural speech as Governor (replacing “segregation” with “States Rights”). However, Landham also said he is not qualified to explain or defend the views of the Libertarian Party, repeatedly saying “ask them.”
