Nathan Larson is 37 years of age, from Charlottesville, Virginia, and is running as an independent for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives this November.
Larson’s platform is comprised of a 12-point manifesto:
- stopping the war on drugs
- protecting gun ownership rights
- putting an end to U.S. involvement in foreign wars arising from our country’s alliance with Israel
- benevolent white supremacy
- private borders
- freedom of speech
- freedom from age restrictions
- suicide rights
- jury trial rights
- discrimination rights
- free trade
Quite a list, eh? This guy is a piece of work. Let’s look, briefly, at a bit of explanation for a few of the items on the above list. Take #2 … Nathan is against any and all restriction on guns. Period. He notes that some call on banning assault weapons and raising the legal age for gun ownership in the wake of recent school shootings, but Nathan, in all of his wisdom, knows what the real cause for the school shootings is:
“In reality, it’s (((feminists))) and (((psychiatrists))) who are causing the school shootings. Many boys end up fatherless because feminists encouraged female sexual promiscuity and undermined husbands’ authority over their wives. Feminists encourage young women to go to college and get a career rather than getting married and starting a family as soon as they become sexually mature. Since the modern career woman has her own money, and ample opportunities to cheat on her husband by claiming that she needs to stay late at work and then go to yoga class, she ends up eventually leaving him. Since growing up without a dad is stressful for boys, they end up going on psychiatric drugs that cause them to become actively suicidal and violently aggressive. They then shoot up schools.”
In #4, he posits that whites are so superior to all other races that they must always lead, and by doing so, they will make the world better for other races. He applauds Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon church, and Adolph Hitler, murderer of six million people.
“Blacks, if given power, will not know what to do with it. If they were capable of running a first world country, then Africa would not be in the state it’s in …”
Are your hackles raised yet? Just wait … let’s take a look at #6, Patriarchy …
“Congress should repeal the Violence Against Women Act and all other legislation that interferes with patriarchal rule in the family. We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands. “
“If girls were not being put in high-risk situations, such as university frat parties where they get drunk to the point of passing out in the company of a bunch of libidinous young men, then they would probably not get raped so much.”
Freedom from age restrictions, #8, calls to abolish virtually all age restrictions, including voting, holding office, marriage, and even drinking alcohol …
“I call for repeal of the National Minimum Drinking Age Act. I think alcohol should be subject to no more regulations than any other consumable product, such as milk or soft drinks.”
Larson first ran for Congress in 2008 in Virginia’s 1st District. However, he was later disqualified after threatening to kill either President George W. Bush or President Barack Obama. In 2008, he sent a letter to the Secret Service warning of imminent plans to assassinate either President George W. Bush or President Barack Obama, an act of civil disobedience meant to call attention to the tyranny of the U.S. government. In 2009, he pleaded guilty and served 16 months in federal prison and three years of supervision upon his release. His conviction would have made him ineligible to run for public office, but when Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe restored voting and other civil rights to thousands of felons who had completed their sentences, Larson became eligible to campaign again.
Now, my first inclination, and perhaps yours too, is to write this guy off as a bad joke, a nut case. Nobody in their right mind would vote for him, right? But … he garnered the 1,000 signatures required to run for office. And think back about two years, when we were still laughing at that entertainer fella with the bad toupee who thought he would win the presidency in November 2016. See where I’m going here? Yes, Nathan Larson is a pimple on the posterior of society, but then … so is Donald Trump, and look where he is sitting today. I think it safe to say that we can no longer take these far-right, white supremacists as a joke and simply write them off, for I believe there is a contingent of voters that is determined to vote for anybody who is willing to cast aside the ideologies, the norms, that have governed in the past.
According to Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), there are at least 8 white supremacists running for office in the mid-terms. Expect to hear more from me on this topic. Sigh.
