    Disgusting as this is, it is less mysterious than it seems. LPNH is presumably the group under control of the Mises Caucus. Scott Horton is a leading member of the “Mises”Caucus; he placed Angele McArdle’s name in nomination for National Chair at the recent convention.

    Scott Horton is Editorial Director of Antiwar.com. For many year Antiwar.com was an outstanding source of news and commentary in opposition to war and interventionism, marred somewhat by obsessive anti-Zionism. In recent years, Scott Horton has turned Antiwar.com into a megaphone repeating Russian propaganda claims.

    Just before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Antiwar.com reprinted a post from The Libertarian Institute, also run by Scott Horton, headlined “Russian Moves in Donbass could End US World Order.” Since the invasion, Antiwar.com has highlighted problems with Ukraine, including claims of fascist influence in Ukraine, while blaming NATO for “encircling” Russia and forcing Putin to order the invasion.

    This is an additional reason to oppose the “Mises” Caucus. And Ludwig von Mises, who wrote in opposition to Russian aggressiveness in the 1950s and 1960s would join us in opposition to the “Mises” Caucus.

    Anyone involved in politics should pick a label to describe their party or political views other than libertarian (and especially libertarian party, though relatively few people draw a distinction) before they disgrace themselves by association with this sick, twisted alt white bunch and what they will paint “libertarian” as before they are done and move on.

    What does anyone have to gain by this?

      Republican plants trying to destroy the Libertarian Party?

      People who believe that all publicity is good publicity?
