    Bob,BLM is really not popular, as trump says, who I don’t support, the silent majority is not happy with what’s going on. Elites and billionaires are behind the whole movement along with chaz, so it really doesn’t come down to public opinion, but a step before, those who shape what public opinion is supposed to be and demand others oblige by it. Also this is very clearly a racial power play by the racial lobby that is BLM, the vehicle of which is antifa and a variety of leftist organizations that want to undermine trump.
    In this subject I very much fall with the paleo rather than the libertarian part of my political ideas. Dumb and unpragmatic libertarianism doesn’t work. I clearly side with rothbard on this, we need racial separatism, especially at this point when it’s obvious that in the current system nobody’s happy.
