The situation over at The Other Place is so bad now that they are posting screenshots of IPR-X articles from over a year ago. We can’t blame them, IPR-X articles are really really great.
History repeats itself once more. Just as in the waning days of Third Party Watch when the re-posting of old articles from the main competition became the norm, IPR rattles on its deathbed doing the same (although at least IPR gives credit where it’s due!). No need to worry. Once IPR 404’s, IPR-X will still be here, reporting third party and independent news.
The slow death of IPR is somewhat sad given my role there in its golden years. But it’s only karma for it to fail due to its failure to fulfill its stated purpose.
In other news, check out the firestorm that erupted after prominent Libertarian Party leader Ryan Ramsey, a friend to IPR-X, linked to us on Facebook in celebration of the great Walter Block’s endorsement of Joshua Smith for LNC chairman (in opposition to the incompetent current chair Nicholas Sarwark). A group calling itself the Libertarian Anti-Fascist Committee (Antifa?) continued the discussion on its page, which evolved into a trashing of the committee, which has a very low Facebook rating of a little over 1 star. In contrast, the Nathan Norman for President page has the maximum 5 star rating.
