No, Saager, Ben Shapiro is not a “nice guy.” He’s a Likudnik who favors the ethnic cleansing of the West Bank. Fortunately, Bennie’s unrepentant Reaganism and neoconservatism is finished. In order to survive the GOP will have to reinvent itself in the image of France’s National Rally (i.e. move comparatively left).
Also, Krystal and Saager are absolutely correct about the co-optation of right-libertarianism by the right-wing of the plutocracy. The focus of actual libertarianism should be the struggle against the state, corporations, and empire (i.e. revolutionary anarchism), not “fiscal conservatism” or (selective) “tax cuts and regulation.”
