Yesterday, after supporters of President Donald Trump breached the Capitol building in protest of the Electoral College certification in progress, the Twitter account of the Libertarian Party tweeted the following:
This is not patriotism. This is not protesting. This is reprehensible violence and aggression and needs to stop now. We hope safety for all those who work in the Capitol.

In response, the Mises Caucus of the Libertarian Party tweeted the following:
This is not to condone violence, but to point out the glaring double standard that makes so many libertarians view the LP as a joke
Want an LP that will condemn leftist violence aimed at middle America with as much vigor as it condemns rightist violence aimed at the feds?
