Stefan Molyneux’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

A Libertarian Icon’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

This is a very detailed article on Stefan Molyneux’s descent into racism and Trumpism. I was a fan of Molyneux, back when he was an anarcho-capitalist who eschewed involvement in electoral politics. He’s the guy who told kids to disown their parents if their parents didn’t support atheism and anarchism. 

For the last two years, however, Stefan has shifted to extremely right-wing racialist politics, and has been one of the main apologists for Donald Trump on the internet, who he sees as a kindred spirit. In fact, many Trump supporters in the alt-right today were originally libertarian-leaning Ron Paul supporters:

Stefan once opposed tribalism in all forms, and now his Youtube channel is almost exclusively focused on white tribalism, blaming minorities for almost everything related to a perceived decay of Western and American civilization. Stefan even supports Christianity now, as long as it can be used as a tool to promote white supremacy. 

The sickest part of Stefan’s Youtube channel is perhaps when more mainstream conservatives appear on his show, including black conservatives, and little to no mention is made of his racist views. It’s as if they’ve either never watched his other videos or they tacitly accept the need to not upset the racists among their own supporters/listeners.
