Sympathy for the devil

More ideological seepage.

Appearing on a neo-Nazi radio program aptly named The Political Cesspool, none other than the "libertarian" Dr. Walter Block, Senior Fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute. An old Fraser Institute hand, as it happens.

And, why, here's Andrew Coulson - the Director of the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom. You remember the Cato Institute--it's been providing expert advice to none other than Robert Mugabe's rival, Morgan Tsvangirai.

This is just like Old Home Week, isn't it?

UPDATE: Damian reminds me that the venerable left-of-centre Kirkpatrick Sale was a Cesspool guest as well. And it didn't take much digging to turn up Thomas Naylor, either. Both appear to have been carried away by a radical decentralism, and are making common cause with Old South revanchists. Bizarre, to put it mildly. They must have lost their minds.

But these exceptions simply prove the rule. Check out the list for yourselves: it's a Who's Who of the American far Right.

H/t Damian
