THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE
Number 876, June 12, 2016
There is no such thing as a "fair" tax.
Is there a "fair" form of theft?
Is there a "fair" form of slavery?
The Race Card Used as a Trump Card
Attribute to L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise
Donald Trump is not a racist.
Mexicans are a nationality, not a race—despite "The Race" used in Spanish as "La Raza" being an organizing meme used by Hispanics and Latinos.
And let's define those terms: "Hispanic" is a person whose primary language is Spanish. "Latino" is a person whose primary language derives from Latin—and properly used without political exclusion would include not only speakers of Spanish but also Portuguese, Italian, and French.
Muslims are not a race. It's a religion spanning many nationalities, ethnic groups, and cultures. There are Chinese Muslims, Indian Muslims, Arab Muslims, Persian Muslims, African Muslims, Polynesian Muslims, European Muslims.
Donald Trump has a problem with a judge he thinks should have dismissed a civil law suit against him when the primary plaintiff was dropped. The judge who declined to do so, Gonzales Curiel—an American whose parents emigrated to the U.S. from Mexico—is a member of a pro-Hispanic bar association that has boycotted Trump businesses—clear grounds for recusal due to prejudice.
Donald Trump also concludes that the set of Islamic-motivated terrorists exists within the set of adherents to Islam. That is a tautology.
I disagree with Donald Trump on immigration policy, economic policy, and 4th Amendment policy.
I am not a Donald Trump supporter because I'm a libertarian and reject his embrace of statism.
But Donald Trump is nowhere near as racist as the people accusing him of racism and if they keep this up I just might have to vote for him in the hopes these lying hypocrites are eliminated from political power and media attention.
