Alive, Anaconda, and Fake: The Virgin Liberal The Chad Libertarian Politically correct, literally censorship Respects everyone equally, lets the virgin live peacefully Is against racism, doesn't realize he is the only one keeping it alive Has an AnCap utopia, scientifically backed by the greatest economists and philosophers in history Empty and fake ideology used to keep politicians in power So virgin had to steal Chad's old name to become relevant /Ideology specifically designed to benefit people Ahead of its time, people don't understand hinm and not politicians Supports Feminism and Ecologism doesn't realize they are Socialism in disguise Gets owned by Ben Shapiro No one will ever tell him what, how, when and where to do anything Has to enforce his ideology trough daddy government, wouldn't work otherwise Constantly worried about what other people think about him Does whatever he wants, no one wil bother or interrupt him Seeks for freedom over equality, obtains a lot of both Your rights ends when his begins Seeks for equality over freedom will never obtain any of both Against freedom of speech, only cares about his viewpoints, literally authoritarianism Understands Virgin's ideas, won't force his ideas over him, will look for a civil debate The government is part of the problem, not the solution Double standards everywhere, can't stop contradicting himself Identifies as a Liberal to more easily approach women, will die virgin is 100% confident about it his ideology, will defend it till his death (If he doesn't find immortality first) Politically incorrect, triggers SJWs and gives zero fucks about what any other people think Never done any productive in his entire life Thinks the government is the solution to everything Principle of non-aggression, will only use lethal force if his person and property is being threatened Probably the most productive guy you will ever meet The Virgin Liberal vs the Chad Libertarian
Alive, Anaconda, and Fake: The Virgin Liberal
 The Chad Libertarian
 Politically correct,
 literally censorship
 Respects everyone equally, lets the virgin live peacefully
 Is against racism, doesn't realize he
 is the only one keeping it alive
 Has an AnCap utopia, scientifically backed by the
 greatest economists and philosophers in history
 Empty and fake ideology used to
 keep politicians in power
 So virgin had to steal Chad's old
 name to become relevant
 /Ideology specifically designed to benefit people
 Ahead of its time, people don't understand hinm
 and not politicians
 Supports Feminism and Ecologism
 doesn't realize they are Socialism
 in disguise
 Gets owned by Ben Shapiro
 No one will ever tell him
 what, how, when and where
 to do anything
 Has to enforce his ideology
 trough daddy government,
 wouldn't work otherwise
 Constantly worried about what
 other people think about him
 Does whatever he wants, no one wil
 bother or interrupt him
 Seeks for freedom over equality,
 obtains a lot of both
 Your rights ends when his begins
 Seeks for equality over freedom
 will never obtain any of both
 Against freedom of speech, only
 cares about his viewpoints,
 literally authoritarianism
 Understands Virgin's ideas, won't force his ideas over
 him, will look for a civil debate
 The government is part of the problem, not
 the solution
 Double standards everywhere,
 can't stop contradicting himself
 Identifies as a Liberal to more
 easily approach women, will die virgin
 is 100% confident about it his ideology,
 will defend it till his death (If he doesn't
 find immortality first)
 Politically incorrect, triggers SJWs and
 gives zero fucks about what any other
 people think
 Never done any
 productive in his
 entire life
 Thinks the government is the
 solution to everything
 Principle of non-aggression, will only
 use lethal force if his person and property
 is being threatened
 Probably the most productive guy
 you will ever meet
The Virgin Liberal vs the Chad Libertarian

Bad, Friends, and Lol: This happened about a month ago. Me-Me lol Em=Entitled Mom EK-Entitled Kid F1-Friend 1 F2-Friend 2 FM-Friends Mom. I was having a picnic with a couple of my friends at a park, We were sitting at a bench eating sandwiches and talking. Also I have bad asthma, Any way we were sitting and talking when I had to have my inhaler. I got it out of my pocket and had a few puffs, F1 asked what it was so F2 and I explained it to her and puffed it without breathing it in to show her the mist and I placed on the bench beside me. All of a sudden EK came up to me who looked about 4 . EK-Cool toy. EM comes out of nowhere. EM- Yes it is a cool toy. Em was looking at my inhaler and smiling, it really freaked me out. Me- Well its not a t... EM- You look too old for toys so maybe we could have it. Me- No, its not a toy. F1-Its for her Asth... Em- C'mon its just a mini fog machine you don't need it. Em starts reaching for it off the bench. She picks it up and smiles. Me- NO!I was freaking out at that moment. The Em shoots me a dirty look and the EK starts sniffling. I start stressing out which is one of my triggers, I try to reach out for it but EM dodges passes it to the EK. As I stress out more my asthma gets worse, I try to speak but nothing comes out so I do some jazz hands to signal to F2 I need my Inhaler. (We make up a bunch of signals for things) F2 stands up. F2- Please give it to me my friend needs it!. EK squirts the mist and dances around in it. EM- Well I don,t think you do. EM picks up EK, gives me a look and walks to her car. A that point my asthma was getting really bad and F1 was patting me on my back and trying to me to breathe slowly while F2 gets FM who was nearby talking to a friend. F2 luckily comes back with FM. FM gets an inhaler from her purse (Shes really paranoid about peoples illnesses) and a bit later I can breathe easy again. We tell FM the story and then she tells my Parents. I hope I don't see those two again. Now my friends and I just laugh about it how the EM thought it was a mini fog machine, It was almost empty anyway We need to organize a police force specifically for catching and locking up karma whores. 🚔
