The following was received by LFV from the author, Gene Trosper. To contact the LPKY officers, see the LPKY website.
I just sent this to all LPKY officers. I hope others contact the LPKY as well.
I would like to strongly express my shock and absolute horror at the recent comments Sonny Landham has made about Arabs and Muslims.
Mr. Landham has fallen into the dangerous trap of collectivism by treating people as groups, rather than individuals. This is especially ironic, considering his heritage which suffered greatly at the hands of racism and genocidal policies.
The Libertarian Party is an organization that supports the principles of peace, non-interventionism, free trade and individualism. Sonny Landham has struck against each of these libertarian principles with his outrageous comments. he has done a grave disservice to the Libertarian Party and the ideals of freedom which we all purport to embrace.
As a long time Libertarian party member and successful activist, I call on the LPKY to officially disavow Mr. Landham’s despicable statements and do everything possible to legally and morally distance themselves from his campaign. To not respond to evil is to be an enabler of evil. Please do the right thing.
