Libertarian 2020 candidate appears on podcast tied to 'boogaloo' movement - 2020-07-06
Libertarian party presidential candidate, Jo Jorgensen, has appeared on a podcast associated with the anti-government "boogaloo" movement just days after an adherent of the movement was arrested for allegedly murdering two law enforcement officers.
One of the other people on the podcast also runs a Facebook page which is strewn with memes that reference insurrectionary violence, and appear to invoke white nationalist and neo-Nazi imagery and subject matter.
The Libertarian party is one of the largest political parties in the US, outside the dominant pairing of the Democrats and Republicans. Although the party's vote is still comparatively small, it has finished third in the last two presidential elections, and has increased its share of the vote in four successive elections, going from 0.4% of the vote in 2004 to 3.3% in 2016, when it fetched almost 4.5 million votes
