trying to get a sense of where the libertarian movement is

on this issue. And wanting to build a conservative populist coalition that can beat back the Progressives. 911 truth and denial concerning the radical Muslim scourge pushes people away from liberty that otherwise might be inclined toward our values.

Yes, they are defending their homeland from western imperialism, but they are also religious lunatics!

Conservatives are moving in our direction. I want to keep them coming our way. Good Democrats are coming our way. I want to see that continue too.

It concerns me that just as the liberty movement is starting to reach mainstream status, people are agitating for all sorts of ideas that are outside of Overton's window. We will quickly lose whatever progress we have made. I hear a lot of people saying, See NSA I told you, and this too, and this too. Before long, people will be spouting all sorts of nonsense and making the movement look ridiculous. We need to monitor our hubris and rein in the conspiratorial excesses).
