Tucker tells me he thinks the term “PC” is no longer accurate. I am not sure what term to use instead, e.g., to refer to “PC” type libertarians. I like the Rothbard term “Dimwit and Serioso” libertarians. They are, after all, by and large humorless drones.
“Totalitarian/egalitarian” libertarians comes to mind too. Also possibly applicable is one I started using, “Cocktail Party” libertarians. I kind of like that one. The type who want to impress the Beltway cocktail party set.
I refer of course to the type that call you a bigot if you burp; the kind who think you are a neo-Confederate holocaust denier and slavery sympathizer if you happen to believe Lincoln was a murdering tyrant engaged in an unconstitutional war. The “hair-trigger” libertarians. The ones who laughingly pose as Randian-style Grand Inquisitor types. What is the best term for these people?
