Look, I don't wish anyone ill. I want God to bless Rush Limbaugh. Of course, if God does bless Rush Limbaugh, Rush will not be fractured up in his mind, body, and soul. Then, he won't be saying things that are plainly asinine on their face, such as von Brunn was a leftist. Brunn was a so-called rightwing (capitalist) libertarian but also a racist and decidedly anti-Jew (hence his Nazis sympathies). Not all rightwing libertarians are racists, per se. It is unfair and dishonest and/or ignorant (at best) to lump all rightwing libertarians together as being racists.

Now, in sound bite mentality, unfortunately, some rightwing libertarians are saying that because Keith Olbermann pointed out that Brunn showed some interest in Ron Paul that Olbermann is necessarily equating Ron Paul supporters as a whole as being as Brunn. To be fair, that was not Olbermann's contention as best I can tell. Olbermann may have been simply pointing out that Limbaugh is wrong that Brunn is/was a "leftist." Leftists don't support Ron Paul, but that is far from the evidence Olbermann pointed to, to show that Brunn was interested in rightwing ideology.

Libertarianism is not leftist. Leftist is sharing. Unlike Libertarianism, leftism is not looking out for self first and foremost. The self is taken care of as one helps the whole body. Libertarianism is looking out for self first and foremost. There is libertarian socialism. One needs the qualifier to move it to the left.

Libertarians have some things in common with the right and left, but then so too does neoconservatism. That's why the libertarians can lump the neocons in with the socialists.

It's muddled in the public eye — intentionally so.

Let me be clear here. I am not a Keith Olbermann fan. I disagree with much of what he says and his choices of words. He is wrong to have no understanding of the concerns people have on the other side.

There are manipulators on both sides, but there are people who genuinely care on both sides. They are confused and don't have the answers, but they are not out for bad. They want to do the right thing. Olbermann and Limbaugh are not being helpful.

The Libertarians do themselves no favor when they delay denouncing acts such as Brunn's.

If their forces split over the issue of racism and ethnic bigotry, good. Those who are Libertarians who are decidedly not racists or ethnic bigots clearly should distance themselves from racism and ethnic bigotry. That way, the other issues concerning false-flag operations, such as 9/11, and the privatization of the currency, as with the Federal Reserve Notes {where the Federal Reserve is neither Federal nor has any reserves but is a privately held, secretive, un-audited bank that charges all the tax payers interest on what should be the peoples money interest free (no National Debt; no Income Tax to pay back the bankers for what they don't deserve and didn't earn but rather concluded in a secret, criminal enterprise)}. The bailout of Wall Street was orchestrated by them while all the money should have gone to Main Street and the real economy.

Let me say that while there are Nazis who overlap some of their personal ideology with Libertarianism, it is stupid and vastly overly simplistic to say that Libertarians are Nazi-oriented. Most of them believe themselves to be the exact opposite of Nazis. Brunn was a Nazis-sympathizer at the very least. That does not mean that understanding Nazis is to sympathize with them in the sense where sympathize means to condone. Parse the language correctly or hold your tongue is a good rule.

That's a socialist article even the Libertarian capitalists can endorse. It doesn't mean buying into Marx and his coercive system. Even the socialists of the World Socialist Web Site denounce Stalin though. Think about it. It matters.
