So the FSP is full of racist skinheads that want to move only white people to New Hampshire to not pay taxes?

Besides looking like a douche bag did this kid do anything wrong?

Its the same article that's been in all the other newspapers around the country, just has a different picture.  

Would this be the pictures that you are talking about?

Hahah. He and his homies showed up on Sunday when there only a handful of us there yet. We referred to them as "the angry people" for three days and never bothered talking to them. Turned out they were totally nice dudes - nothing racist or scary about them at all, aside from tattoos and shirtlessness.

I think he may have been one of the people connected (maybe loosely) with the Alliance of the Libertarian Left.  You know: Agorism, farming, gun rights, and that type of thing.

I didn't have much time to talk to them but I heard good things about them.

The article in the Keene paper featured different photos.  The AP took a lot of photos.

As far as the FSP, "We are looking for neighborly, productive, tolerant folks from all walks of life, of all ages, creeds, and colors who agree to the political philosophy expressed in our Statement of Intent, that government exists at most to protect people's rights, and should neither provide for people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no one else."

You dumb fuckers just don't get it do you.  Take the fuckin' FSP rose-colored glasses off for 2 seconds and look at that picture and THINK about what that might say to someone who has no idea about the FSP or this BBS.  Shaved-head tattooed people are not shown in a positive light and to put that picture along with a quote at the end of the article talking about being armed and ready for aggressors, even government ones, is damaging as hell.

You get one chance to make a first impression...how ya think that looked to a lot of people who never heard of the FSP until reading an article with that picture in it?

Can I ask why anyone should care about the score "Lord Humongous" apparently keeps? Why do his points matter?

They probably thought it looks like their nephew and his friends are moving to New Hampshire. In case you haven't been paying attention, that's not all that uncommon a "look" these days.

Tattos?  OMG!
Short hair? Massively popular.
Pathetic attempt at facial hair?  Very common.

I didn't take the picture.  I have no control over that.  I didn't publish the article.  I have no control over that.  Many of the people quoted in the article are not involved with the FSP.  I have no control over that.

It's important to control the things you can, tolerate the things you cannot and, know the difference.  Some editor of the Union Leader decided to use that picture.  Contact them and complain if you would like.

The only place that I've seen that picture was in the Union Leader

you are getting all butt hurt because some kid got a tattoo?  You have a serious lack of perspective.

FSP is not an orthodoxy that its members must serve by scoring "points"!

Its members define the broader movement - its goals, its tactics, and so forth.

FSP member "jackassery" is representative of those individuals, not the movement as a whole.  The broad public opinion is not wise enough to make that distinction, of course, but that doesn't create any obligation on those individuals to mind their P's and Q's any more than there's any obligation to vote, or participate in CivDis, and so forth.

It's a decentralized movement of free-thinking individuals.  Let's not even pretend that any one person or even any one particular philosophy is in control.
