Libertarian Party Chairman Candidate Strips To His Underwear On Stage

Tyler Durden's picture

While badly needing an alternative to the fake left-right division plaguing US society, Americans will not get a much needed, credible libertarian "third choice" for at least another year. Here's why.

Earlier today, the Libertarian Party nominated former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson and former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld as its presidential ticket Sunday, as the party attempts to elevate itself into the mainstream during an election that's given the small party unprecedented opportunity. Unfortunately, "taking itself into the mainstream" was just not meant to be for a party that earlier today saw a candidate for chairman strip to his underwear and give the entire convention a striptease.

The pair, both two-term governors, have more executive experience than any other candidate in the race, and they will offer an alternative to two historically unpopular candidates, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

"This is the best message team going forward," Johnson, the Libertarians' presidential nominee, told reporters after Weld won the vice presidential nomination.

And, as NBC reports, it all came to be in a contested convention. After endless speculation that the Republican Party's divided primary might end in a contested convention in Cleveland and continued theories that the Democrats' primary could end in Philadelphia with a floor battle between party insiders, 2016 finally had a contested convention, in Orlando. 

Johnson won on the second ballot after falling short of a majority by just a few votes — getting 49.5 percent — on the first. However, unlike the democratic or republican races, there were no superdelegates who will make all the difference.

Unfortunately, it is here that things took a turn for the bizarre. The tense hour between ballots left candidates scheming and delegates making floor deals and chanting for and against candidates. It was the kind of drama political reporters had previously only dreamed about.

While Johnson locked down enough votes on the second ballot, the drama was far from finished Sunday. Libertarians also allow their party to choose the vice presidential nominee, and Johnson's chosen running mate — Weld — is not a party favorite, as many question whether he's really a Libertarian. It didn't help that he endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for the Republican presidential nomination earlier in the primary cycle.

Weld fells a couple of dozen votes short on the first ballot, but he won on the second — by just a few votes — and the crowd erupted in boos and cheers.

And then, the Libertarians showed that when it comes to stealing the stage and making a total farce, Trump is at best an amateur, when a candidate for the chairmanship of the Party decided to unleash in a stripteaser on the stage.

As The Hill reports, the man took the stage and defended his chosen candidate for the party’s vice presidential nomination, Derrick Grayson, as the results of the second ballot were tabulated, according to reporters on the scene. During that time candidates for chairman of the party were allowed two minutes each to speak. The man stripped down to his underwear, before saying he was doing it for a dare and leaving the stage.


This is what happened at the most important annual event for the US libertarian party:

Several delegates came to the microphones after the display to complain, with one attempting to revoke the man's membership from the party.

To summarize: after eight straight hours of voting, the Libertarian Party had its nominees, America had finally seen a contested convention, and one person got naked. 

The good news is that if this is a preview to the insanity to come during the republican and democratic conventions, Americans will be greatly entertained this summer...

Great, where is the popcorn?

That's the main problem with libertarians, they don't recognize borders.

controlled opposition ordered to be dumb fucks or "guided" by remote control towards public infamy.

Team depends, you win best comment there. I consider myself a libertarian, but I'm not a fan of the LP. There are several groups or people within it that are trying to pull it in different directions, most of which I don't agree with. On one end, you have Johnson with this garden variety republican VP pick trying to appeal to more establishment types by becoming what they claim to despise, then you have jackasses like this who try to take the 'anything goes' thing way too far. It's impossible to sell libertarianism to normal adults when you have someone seeking to speak for the philosophy engaging in childish shit like this.

Why does he have a tattoo of an iron cross?

Seems like an infiltraitor to me.

NidStyles's picture

Iron Cross or not, he's not one of ours. We don't advocate libertarianism for non-Europeans living within our countries...


Most of the rational whites have left the Libertarians behind due this sort of behavior.

"Most of the rational whites have left the Libertarians behind due this sort of behavior."


depends on what you mean. I haven't left the ideas of libertarianism behind, but i am pretty much done with the libertarian party

Isn't "Libertarian Party" an oxymoron? Would a real Libertarian join a party?

peddling-fiction's picture

Maybe you have point. Then maybe the system needs a change towards direct votes.

NidStyles's picture

Believing in non-tribal libertarianism means disregarding everything that is sacred about one's people. If you have not left it behind, then you have disregarded your people. Your people should come first.

And some think Trump is different.

Atleast when a Libertarian conducts a false flag operation you KNOW a Libertarian has conducted a false flag operation.



p.s. love the German Cross tattoo.

Seems like every time I go to a Party someone ends up getting naked. LOL?

Yep, and Obozo says this dancing fat-fuck could be found in the public restroom you may send your little girl into if he so chooses to proclaim his gender as female.

Entirely the fat-fuck's choice... not yours...

So sayeth Obozo!

A true libertarian would have taken the man-panties off too.

Libertarians respect others' right to consent.  This guy decided to inflict his body on the rest of the group without asking in advance given the presumption of decourm at such an event.


The LP is a very infiltrated organization.  I'd not trust this, guy was probably "sitched on" at a time when the mainstream is publishing articles about "has the LP finally found its time?" to scrape votes off of Trump.  The GOP is always paranoid the LP will get its 2% in tough races where otherwise the GOP candidate would be the only thing paying lip service to smaller govt.    This sort of behavior helps trump, not hurts.

Maybe Boris is not so much want to sign up for Amerikansky flavor of Libertarian.

I would upvote you a million times if I could. There is more truth and wisdom in your few sentences above than most here can comprehend. You have hit the nail on the head and the ball out of the park. People will argue endlessly over party positions and politicians speeches - but the truth is simple and irrefutable. 

Somewhere there are still peoples and herds, but not where we live, my brothers: here there are states. State? What is that? Well then, open your ears to me, for now I shall speak to you about the death of peoples.

State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it tells lies too; and this lie crawls out of its mouth: "I, the state, am the people." That is a lie! It was creators who created peoples and hung a faith and a love over them: thus they served life.

It is annihilators who set traps for the many and call them "state": they hang a sword and a hundred appetites over them.

Where there is still a people, it does not understand the state and hates it as the evil eye and the sin against customs and rights.

Thus spoke Zarathustra.

i swear that book is the most incredible literary thing ever written.

Let me do you Libertarians a favor and offer some advice.

If you want to have a Libertarian party, you'll need to have some party discipline.  That process might go against some of your beliefs, but you can't have a political party without it.

Otherwise disband the party and just make libertarianism a kind of religion.

Write books.  Preach the gospel. Pass the hat as needed.  And stay away from politics.

Can you imagine what would happen to that "stripper" if he had done it at a convention of the Communist party and stripped in front of comrade Stalin?

Sometimes it's fun to imagine.

between the heavy-set red beard and william weld, the latter is more embarrassing.

I lean libertarian, too, and it's this sort of shit that disgusts me about party politics.

DontGive's picture

Who cares. Some fat fuck stripped and pranced around on stage. Do you prefer shenanigans behind closed door? Then continue sucking that establishment cock.

If you are outraged. Good.


greenskeeper carl's picture

theres a big difference between being annoyed and offended by this and 'continuing to suck establishment cock'. Being offended by this fat fuck stripping and acting like an idiot in such a way that discredits the movement is a far cry from deciding to suck establichment cock. Im not offended by a fat guy in his underwear, Im offended that someone who acts in such a manner even got close to becoming a prominant voice of the group that claims to represent my positions.

DontGive's picture

You missed the point. If you need a 'movement' and 'leaders' in a rigged system, be prepared to have your fantasy shattered.

TheMeatTrapper's picture

Grow the fuck up. Reality has never been altered by individuals acting alone. I'm afraid your individualist power is what is a fantasy.

IndyPat's picture


Lee Harvey Oswald was on individual acting alone. Made a pretty big splash, I think. Purdy good shot, too.

You're not one of those conspiracy theorists are you?

Cuz the government looked into this real hard and they said it was just the one guy.

conscious being's picture

Indy you are pretty astounding. Not a good example unless you think the Warren Commission is credible.

Tall Tom's picture





Obvious snark and supportive of Meat Trapper's argument that collective groups have more power than individuals.


Your Government would have you believe otherwise, as it points out the major flaw with the Warren Commision, but...


It is like John Hinckley acted alone....or Sirhan Sirhan.


Right. I'll buy that.

SubjectivObject's picture

Oswald acted alone.

IndyPat outs himself.

J Pancreas's picture

My outrage stems from that fat ginger not taking off his man-thong too. If you're going to go all out don't be a pussy when it's your moment in the sun.

Disgusting...sans bra or pasties

I lost interst in the Libertarians back in the mid 90's, as they gave in to the dope smokers and abortionists.  As freedom was already in peril in this country, they defaulted to advocating license as opposed to liberty.  Thei advocacy of drug legalization seemed fully rooted in their own desire to smoke dope, rather than in preserving ideas of self governance and ending the war on drugs.  They then became wholly owned by the quite hard left Feminist factions which asserted that self ownership led necessarily and exclusively to an acceptance of unfettered rights to abortion at any time for any reason.  They became utterly inured to the very real, fundamentally libertarian argument that by defining personhood as, in some circumstances, being dependent on the will or convenience of another person, they erased the foundational belief of libertarianism.

This is bad enough, but God help us all if Cankles decides to do this too... Oh the humanity!

Borders are for mobsters who want to monopolize the shakedown of the businesses within them.

Replace mobsters with "government" and you see the problem.

IndyPat's picture

I see your point.

I'm going to bury some plutonium in your front lawn tomorrow because your boarders on record at the county are imaginary and repressive.

Don't give me any shit about it, either, you prick mobster.

hxc's picture

Gotta be pretty stupid to not see the difference between private property rights, and govt borders.

HopefulCynical's picture

Gotta be pretty stupid to think that there's a difference.

My land > my neighborhood > my town > my county > my state > my nation.

nuubee's picture

Where, exactly, did you get the energy to refine plutonium into a primarily radioactive mass? From government money printing? Oh, I see the problem yet again.

WeTheSheeplez's picture

Probably sponsored by soros...

tmosley's picture

I suspect it is either just insanity, or, with only a small likelihood, sponsored by Trump, who didn't want to bend toward a libertarian impulse. Instead, forcing libertarians to bend to him by humiliating them all at their own convention.

I don't think that is the case, but in any event, while we aren't being perfect libertarians, I would say this man should be placed against a wall and shot to death for his betrayal.

Getting very tired of "Libertarians" and their bullshit.

As I said on a different thread earlier:

It feels to me as if the zio-masters have turned up their agitprop /filth/crazy/perversion propaganda machines 150% in the hopes of destroying the culture and/or driving people mad before people wake up and TSHTF.

Seems this guy got a double dose and has officially lost it.
