I do not like Cantwell. (shall henseforth referred to as "Toolboy" by me on the rest of this thread) 1. His going to that trolls house with the can of mace. 2 I heard he pepper sprayed some girl at a gathering(I don't know if this is true) 3 He made sexual jokes about Ali Havens who is dating one of the cohosts of my favourite podcast. (and I laughed at the gag- still you defend friends girlfriends)
I have argued with Toolboy on facebook a time or two. He was not impolite to me at all and I get the impression he is a good friend to his friends. I have to admit I tend to note and respect that sort of thing. I believe his brand of commentary brings not only people, but quality "doers" into the liberty movement. His retoric is consistant with the NAP as far as I can tell. Yes frontal asaults on DC and trying to shoot drones with a hunting rifle would be a bad idea, but Toolboys humour is to be extreme and make a point. Doug Stanhope says crazier shit and I am sure he would be welcome to Porcfest.
When Ladiesman Curtis fucked and scorned, or just fucked, or just scorned one to many liberty chicks (guy needs to write a how-too book) He was thrown out of porcfest.... because Carla didn't like him anymore. I don't want to have a liberty movement where the in crowd is judged on their likability. Toolboy works hard and has the balls to be a little controvercial. Curtis is a player among nerds, but he also tried to do things, it's not his fault the ladies want him. (I know a few players who are not libertarians or screw libertarian ladies, they tend to remain friends after breakups with women, just a interesting aside)
I think it is wrong to discriminate against anyone who is not actually dangerous. Curtis and Toolboy are not. Both are documented taking the high road in confrontational situations in fact. If we have a freedom movement based solely on arbitrary stuff like who likes who, we are proving ourselves to be wrong. Evidently even people who know what the NAP is will get and misuse power based on arbitrary things instead of facts and merit.
