Oh boy! It’s that very special time of the year: The fringe candidate ads are here! Feast on this brilliant sample of sensory overload from Libertarian presidential candidate John McAffee. Yes, the antivirus guy. Yes, the one who “was named as a ‘person of interest’ in an unsolved 2012 murder case in Belize and later claimed he is a target of a Central American hit squad for his criticisms of the Belize government.” Yes, the guy who had seven women living with him in Belize as part of a “social engineering project,” which even Yr Wonkette thinks is an unnecessarily complex term for “enjoys group sex, maybe, and if it’s consensual, that’s OK.”

But just get a load of this techno-loaded jump-cutting ad, which includes snippets of Serenity and The Simpsons to make Serious Political Points. As the label on the Plastic Ono Band’s 45’s used to say, PLAY LOUD:

So that happened. It looks like something from InfoWars, only without quite so much emphasis on the Illuminati.

The ad offers some very deep thoughts on the American political system, like the onscreen text informing us, “Every four years Americans come together to bully their neighbors” and “Politics is dying. Kill politics so it can be reborn. Be a Libertarian.”

Missing from the ad is the equally valid statement “There’s a spaceship behind the comet. Get your purple jumpsuit on now!”

Out of place though the Simpsons clip seems, the ad still does less violence to the animated series than Ted Cruz did, so there’s that.

McAfee’s running mate Judd Weiss created the video, and explained what he was trying to accomplish:

“We are going after youth,” he said. He knows they may turn some people off, and they are even “hoping to create a certain outrage and then pour gasoline on the fire. We want to make something beautiful the media can’t resist. We want people on the streets with picket signs [in protest]. That’s the goal. I haven’t gotten there yet, but give me time, I’m just starting.”

There you go. Hope that settles your questions. In the unlikely event Weiss doesn’t take up residence in lair House in January 2017, he should at least be available to produce laser shows synced to Pink Floyd and Daft Punk.

    So ‘Libertarian’ is a German House Music band?

  • limberrat

    Hi, I’m John McAfee. Creator of the crappy anti-virus software that operates more as a virus and doesn’t actually protect you. I don’t like paying taxes because I want to have an obscene amount of money rather than a large amount of money. Come join the Libertarian party and we’ll completely destroy 100 years of progress, but hey, you get to do drugs with us!

      Wait…is he really the creator of that shit?

      • limberrat

          I find that both incredibly distressing AND perfectly fitting. As if some weird piece of a jigsaw puzzle just went “click” as if to say, that explains that.
          Aside: My hubs tried to do the McAfee thing on my comp because free from work or some garbage and it took me twice as long to get rid of it as it took me to get rid of Norton.

          Hubby is no longer allowed to put things on the comp without asking me first.

          • limberrat

            My father is a McAfee acolyte for some strange reason and our computers were always slow and would always wind up with viruses (my sister plays too many online games and just downloads stuff all willy-nilly). I kept telling him to try other anti-virus software and he still refuses to use anything else and is still confused why he winds up with viruses. Buying crappy computers and using McAfee can do that.

            I now have Panda and Malwarebytes (backed up by Microsoft’s antivirus crap) and it seems to work fine.

      Kid just got off the phone with a “Jack from Windows support” who called to inform us our computer was being hacked and offered to walk him through fixing it; Kid likes to play with scammers, so he told “Jack” he felt really depressed and lost in the world, and damned if Jack didn’t turn sympathetic and say he hated his own job, hated scamming people, and his name was really Vikash, but on the “lie name” Jack. Then the call went dead, apparently cut off by a supervisor.

        I was thinking more Fall of Rome, French Revolution, Bolshivick revolution, Cromwell Rebellion…all those things where burn it down seemed great and lots of people got killed and humanity, as a race, was set back on its ass a whiles.
        But those work too!

        • wurman

          I’m so disappointed . . . all of this libertarian caterwauling and the names Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Ross Perot, Lyndon LaRouche, David Koch, and Bob Barr stay subterfuged, covert, unacknowledged.

    Well, sure. It’s a lot easier to convince people who have spent their lives being protected and financially supported by relatives that they don’t need no stinkin’ social programs to succeed. After all, studying hard gets them good grades, so all it takes to be a millionaire is doing your homework.

    • mardam422

      I once told someone I was “going after youth”, too. That gets the attention of the cops really fast, though.

      flashing a hammer and sickle over people’s faces is just the fastest route to us knowing that OBVIES these people are evil socialists who want to steal all that is good in the world or we would be living on the moon by now. and, because these people tend not to believe in vaccines, I have every reason to believe that they think that once they have their hands on the reins, whatever Big Brother is doing to cause epilepsy will go away–plus, if they do believe it’s real, they’re pro-legalization so it all sorts itself out in the wash.

  • UnsaltedSinner

    So it turns out McAfee’s political ads are as annoying as his antivirus software. Can we sue him for the epileptic seizures that video will induce?

    • bnl552

      You do realize that John McAfee has not had anything to do with that antivirus software in over 20 year?

      • Iam Reading

        Libertarian, butthurt concern troll alert. Libertarians, when throwing tantrums typical of three year olds while in your 40s seems like a rational bargaining tactic.

    pro tip, if you’re trying to “reach the youth” maybe don’t make a video that looks exactly like a ministry or front 242 video from 1989

  • bnl552

    Possible murderer. Really. You know there was no evidence ever presented and the all charges were dropped. And you are going to accuse him of being a rapist as well, again, with no evidence.

    I’m not disagreeing that he is insane, just that you should be ashamed of making such baseless claims. Oh, and do your research, there is NO such thing as a running mate in the Libertarian party primary process.

    • Tansy Geek

      ” there is NO such thing as a running mate in the Libertarian party primary process.”
      It’s true, it’s the winner of Death Race and an arm wrestling tournament at a “alternative educational institution”. Yes, you have to win both to be considered.

    • BeverlyCrusher’sWig

      Ummm…the video they released has McAfee/Weiss 2016 at the end of it. So maybe someone should tell them?

    • King of America

      I don’t see anywhere he got called a rapist? Did you misread “racist”, which is a synonym for Libertarian?

    • Panika MCD

      I believe he accused him of using “social experimentation” to cover up his penchant for group sex.

    • Iam Reading

      Is tor real name Cunty McShitstain? It 2ould be irresponsible not to speculate. Libertarians, always with the butthurt.

    • But wait wait wait… you are accusing Wonkette of making baseless claims by saying McAfee is a possible murderer, only to make the baseless prediction of Wonkette making a baseless accusation of rape?

      Hasn’t Gary Johnson announced that his running mate is William Weld?

      Do you really have a point?

    • Zhu Bajie

      Insane? Or too much meth, etc.? Anyway, the Libertarian Trump.

    • EmmettGrogan

      I met John McAfee back in the 80’s. He was an arrogant asshole who asked me out but didn’t tell me he was married. I found out and cancelled the date. He was very slick, a liar and manipulator and sleazy as all hell, as I later found out (he was in a group I was in). I have no doubt he might well be a psychopath and people who worked with him claim he created the AV program AFTER creating a virus, so his program would be popular. He was one of the most arrogant, sleaziest jerks I ever met, with no respect for women. I wouldn’t be surprised if he did murder someone, he did TONS of crazy drugs. Now he pops up in the news sometimes and won’t go away. Please, Baby Jesus, make this man go away.

  • Lark_in_the_AM

    Aside from the serious headache I got watching that, the last bits made me laugh. Not only does every text line have its own cursor, but I loved all the shots of public infrastructure followed by the flashing red “tax is theft”. I assume then that he never drives or flies anywhere, never avails himself of modern medicine, nor otherwise uses anything purchased with tax money, since that would make him an accessory to theft (obviously the most heinous crime there is).

    • Panika MCD

      first, we abolish the IRS, then we get our moon base!

    • Mike Ennamorato

      Your logic is flawed because we live in a system that forces us to act as an ‘accessory’ or become irrelevant. Note the word “force”.

      • Lark_in_the_AM

        Huh? An accessory to what?

        • Mike Ennamorato

          Read your first comment.

          • Lark_in_the_AM

            Oh fer heaven’s sake, go Galt already, pleez? Irrelevant? That’s the worst fate that can befall you as a result of living a civilized life? Using public infrastructure that other people’s taxes paid to develop (like that internet you are using right now!) while screaming about tax being theft in bold, red, flashing letters isn’t “irrelevant”, it’s dishonest, pure and simple.

            You libertarians want to enjoy the fruits of other people’s labor, yet you do not want to pay for it in your turn. You want to have internet and other telecommunications, expect your lights to turn on when you flip the switch, want to drive down pot-hole free roads, want sewage treatment plants so that you aren’t standing knee deep in your own and everyone else’s shit, want clean water to drink and safe food to eat, your doctor to have the knowledge to treat your illness, blood available if you should have an accident, police to arrest the asshole who stole your tablet, and someone to make certain he pays for his crime, fire fighters to put out that wildfire heading toward your house, planes which don’t collide with each other in mid-air, plus the many other benefits of living in a civilized society – yet you would destroy it all because you read a book in your extended adolescence that told you that money and the love of it is the be-all and end-all of existence, selfishness is the highest virtue in this world, and that caring about your fellow human beings is evil. And it appealed to you so much that you confused fiction with fact and are sure that you will somehow magically be on the top of the heap when all the “looters” and “moochers” get what they deserve in Galtopia.

            Got news for you, pal: we would never have been able to form societies and create capitalism in the first place had personal selfishness uber alles been the guiding principle of human evolution. But if cooperation and altruism (gasp! – the worstest ideas ever!) disgust you, and paying taxes is something that you view as anathema, no one is forcing you to stay.

            That hot objectivist paradise known as Somalia is yours for the taking – no government to speak of, though it does have a bit of a warlord problem, though that shouldn’t be a problem for the True Capitalist Believer – so you and your fellow objectivists have a golden (*snerk*) opportunity awaiting you. By all means, show us mere mortals How It’s Done. They already have their own pirate fleet. It should be a piece of cake for all of you ubermensch to tax yourselves voluntarily fund the modern infrastructure you deserve and its construction, as well as producing something of value for you to trade for food and raw materials, plus a military to protect it all (damn those takers!) in no time flat. There you can prove to us all how ruthless, laissez-faire capitalism with no regulation to speak of will produce the greatest society the world has ever seen, with no repercussions from everyone living only for themselves and behaving as if their fellow human beings are nothing but tools to be used. Can’t wait!

            P.S. Oh, btw, it might interest you to know that Ms. Jaundiced herself ended up on the side of the Looters. Rather than stoically lay down and die from the lung cancer she caused herself by smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day (as she demanded everyone else afflicted with a deadly disease they couldn’t pay to treat), she took the Social Security and Medicare she was entitled to, prolonging her life at the taxpayers’ expense. What a parasite!

    Regardless of the crude medium in which it has been portrayed, this is the message of the future. The message of our future, of a bright future, where the threat of force as a means to an end no longer exists, and the protection and pursuit of one’s own individual liberty is the supreme law of the land. Keep denigrating and mocking this message as so many before you have done, your time, and the time of those of your ilk is nearing an end.
