On October 19, 2017, after LPM member (and Abrogate Prohibition Michigan organizer) Dana Carver and I spoke with Michigan Libertarian Executive Committee‘s District 8 Congressional District Representative (and Libertarian gubernatorial candidate) Jeff Wood about former LPM State Vice Chair Kim McCurry‘s anti-LP piece in which she decided to leave the Libertarian Party, Wood posted his reaction over the entire matter on Facebook. Yup, he did, and he did it….just….like….that!
It didn’t surprise me that he would respond, but I think it did piss off a lot of people who weren’t expecting him to respond the way he did.
Here are all the screenshots of his thread on FB for your enjoyment.
Libertarians of Macomb County Membership Director Benjamin Joseph Dryke and LMC and LPM member Michael Worton have been firing off potshots at each other in this thread, and they’re not doing it all for naught. Check these out!
Let’s provide some clarity to Ben’s statement in which he said he defended Worton.
Now to continue with the screenshots:
Let’s bring some more clarity into Josh Barton’s response to Tyler Palmer, shall we?
I tried to read Brandon Wellman‘s post and comments, but I got blocked on my regular political account. He even blocked it on my Todd A Barnett (Nightseeking Bear) account as well. (He may have deleted his comments from being shared, but I’ve already acquired them anyway.)
Here are the screenshots of the blocking of both accounts.
You get it now?
Here’s more clarity to the comments above.
The next screenshot gives you a teeny-weeny bit more clarification on the following comments.
Mark Sanborn had something to say about this.
Now I don’t know why Wellman blocked my regular political account. I’ve never dealt with the man, never insulted, never acted or behaved in a condescending way to him, and never said a word to him.
Here are his nonsensical blog posts and comments about Kim’s decision to leave the Party.
First of all, let’s get something straight about Brandon Wellman. He was *NEVER* a true libertarian, let alone a Libertarian. He never amounted to anything more than being a donor to the Party, and that is it. That. Is. It! He was never a Party member. He never attended LEC and his county’s meetings. He was just a dye-in-the-wool hard-core conservative Republican pretending to be a Libertarian when he *NEVER* truly was. He was never a libertarian in the ideological sense. Again he was a conservative. Yes, that’s right! A conservative!!!
Second of all, the only reason he was in the Party was to convert and shift the balance of power from an ideologically-pure Libertarian one into a conservative GOP-lite one. He had nothing to give, and he also had nothing to lose either. He just didn’t give a billion shits about liberty and the entire libertarian movement that has been around decades before him.
Oh, and by the way, he can eat shit and die! His anti-Libertarian and anti-libertarian spewing can be thrown out the window. He’s equally a fuckhead as McCurry, and he doesn’t realize it. If he still doesn’t in the future, then he’s got more issues than Hustler Magazine.
Finally, he and all the “let’s-defend-Kim” idiots are doing exactly that because they love her. They like her. He’s got a massive hard-on for her. It’s true. He’s not doing out of principle and/or conviction. He’s doing it because he simply can, and that’s the god-awful not-fun-at-all part. Hell, if he could, he would sleep with McCurry behind her husband’s back, because why? Because. He. Simply. Can.
The drama in the LP and the LPM is simply entertaining. What’s more entertaining are the Wortons, the Wellmans, and the McCurrys of the world can’t handle the simple fact that we are truly libertarian (and Libertarian)…..and they’re not.
Not one iota. Not one bit.
