Eli Harmon on going from Libertarian to Nationalist

I didn’t start out racist, sexist, antisemitic, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic or any of that.

I was just an easy going libertarian who wanted to live and let live.

But at a certain point, I could no longer deny that I was under constant, relentless, systematic and deliberate assault, on every dimension (moral, ideological, political, demographic, cultural, physical, economic…) because of my race, because of gender, because of my sexual orientation, because of my nationality, because of my ethnicity, because of my regional culture, because of what religion I wasn’t, and so on and so forth.

And being as these don’t seem likely to stop, I had to look around, for others who might stand with me against this encroaching tide of darkness. And those others are racist, sexist, antisemitic, bigoted, straight, white, men (and a few others who only check *most* of those boxes.)

You drew the battle lines. I only chose my side.
