I've been monitoring the controversy over Rand unfold, but have chosen to remain silent until now, choosing to give Rand the benefit of the doubt. I try not to fall in the trap of hysterical overreaction, deriding fellow patriots or blind unquestioning faith, especially in man. I agree with RJ's rational take on this.
I think Rand either made a mistake or was being too nuanced in order not to lose the mainstream crowd, hoping we'd understand what he's doing. I trust Rand has a satisfying explanation and/or apology for his recent statements. If I am wrong however, that would disappointing as I cannot support these stated positions. If Rand continues to do so, without explanation, I can no longer support him either.
He has the benefit of my doubt. I won't fight against him, but until he clarifies his statements, I cannot lend support or donate any further.
(If I missed any statement Rand has made in regards to this a link would be appreciated. Thanks!)
