Civilized countries don't strip their citizens of their democratic rights no matter how foul or otherwise terrible any crimes they may commit, except perhaps if said crime is directed against democracy. As soon as you start restricting democratic rights for one reason or another someone will demand that you expand those restrictions until only "acceptable" people are able to vote.

I mean this guy is hardly worse than any one of the millions of Americans who voted for Trump and supports his attacks against the entire democratic form of government.
Are you serious?

Of course I don't understand how can a libertarian be a white supremicist, the 2 seem to be contradicting.

If he's "pro free market" and thinks that it's reasonable for slaves to exist that's one horrible thing but at least it doesn't contradict.

But having specifically calling out whites to be in charge seems like it would require government interference.
If you believe white superiority is the natural order and the government is creating laws to prevent that natural state of things from occurring then libertarianism is a good fit.

If anything the latter is far more objectionable given that they actually represent a realistic threat to democracy, where as pedophiles and other crazy voters do not.

Collectively, they represent a greater threat to democracy I agree. However, I believe there are some "citizens" who have de facto forfeited their right to vote, this POS included. That's just me.

Has there been a professional assessment of his mental health? Is he actually mentally incompetent, or is he just another two-bit attention whore playing to the crowds?

He's a Neo-Nazi petaphile who advocates raping children. I really don't care about his possible mental illness defense.
