But what we are facing is Islamofascism, which is the exact opposite of libertarianism, as it is a coercive memeset. I don't know about you, but I, for one, am terminally not willing to publicly declare my devotion to Muhammed and the Qu'ran, grow my beard, treat women like chattel, and touch my forehead to the dirt five times a day just so I won't be murdered by some pussy-in-Paradise-pursuing, fatwa-following jihadist memebot. Such a person, who offers me the convert-or-die alternative of death or intellectual and physical slavery, has already given me permission to kill him, in defense of self, life and freedom.
