    Like someone pointed out in response to a Greg Kelly tweet today, the only rational way to read his remarks and position is that libertarianism, being the only true bullwark of communism, must prevail but it won't prevail without using the authoritarian tactics which they claim would not be part of the Libertarian Utopia. Basically to stop the bad guy you have to out-bad the bad guy.

    Maybe I have too rosey a recollection but I don't think she could have honestly anticipated how Trumpism would play out. It's one thing to speak in broad boilerplate randian platitudes, it's another to want to overthrow the government in their service. Some of it is, frankly often unawares, just political roleplaying - like the dude who owns an AR-15 for protection but would melt like the wicked witch if ever confronted with an actual crisis point where they had to shoot someone.

    Trouble is, it's near impossible to tell which is which until they cross the Rubicon.

    9 million more people voted for Trump the 2nd time around.

    Maybe she wouldn't have jumped in the frey but the odds don't seem in favor of that, given what she did enable.

    I'm holding back because it's you I'm speaking to, but she's had a loooooong history of laughing of racial harrassment and enabling guys being shitty towards women. Tamar also left the board specifically because a progressive leftist who didn't suffer fools lightly took it over. Same as Scorp, Volpone and every other shitgibbon in that Rat Pack that's stepped into the Nazi ring.

    For your sake only, I'm glad this will remain speculation.
