I was originally scheduled to speak at the Rage Against the War Machine rally on February 19, 2023, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, in Washington, DC. The Libertarian Party, one of the organizers of the event (the other being the People's Party), determined that I did not pass their litmus test of qualities they required for speakers at the rally, and threatened to block the rally if I were to speak. I withdrew in the interest of allowing the other voices scheduled to speak at the rally the opportunity to be heard.
Scott, sorry to hear about the outcome. I know you have a lot to say on this subject. Did the Party share their speaker guidelines before inviting you to speak?
Great! Stay strong Scott.
Scott, while this upsets me as well, it also sheds light on the fact that Washington nit-wits fear the power of your presence. I admire your courage to gracefully step aside until another opportunity to impact this machine. You and many other learned men and women who you have had on your show could hold your own rallies. Salutes and wags!
Libertarian party losers are -- shit
I am not suprised !
In fact, I don't even understand why Mr. Ritter has not been reprimanded by the authorities, since he commits the most terrible crime, telling the truth "The king is naked" !
For my part, I can only recommend that all patriots share Mr. Scott Ritter's videos with their friends, be brave so that the truth reaches those who are deceived by worldwide propaganda !
And from afar, I thank Mr. Ritter for his courage !
This is the way. Good decisions on your part, all round.
Looks like the "Rage Against the War Machine" rally is slowly transforming into the "non-invited Rage Against the speakers" and the "speakers Rage Against the non invited" rallies... with the War Machine untouched and largely winning. I think you were right and giving everyone a style lesson with your withdrawal; not many are capable to take one for the team in that lot! Chapeau!
Thank you Scott. You're doing great work and reaching a hell of a lot more ears (and minds) than any of those petty and resentful halfwits who are going to be speaking at RATWM.
Just watched your brief explanation of Wagner group -- outstanding as always, well-informed, objective, thoughtful.
Thank you for your invaluable anti-war efforts and leadership !
I am a big fan and supporter of you and Norm.
Imagine purity-testing an antiwar rally. When you've got Libertarians and Trots both trying to destroy it from different sides you know there is truly no antiwar movement remaining.
Good for you.
Your cancellation shows this woke phenom is pure social ideology and nothing to do with peace on earth.
This social attitude reminds one of ancient religious quarrels and has nothing to do with a open, broad minded civilization we thought we all dreamed about for a few years in the good times growing up before the corruption underneath reared it’s ugly head.
Back to counting how many angels on the head of a pin thinking.
I can’t take them seriously their self proclaimed authority of righteousness .
This Rage Against the War Machine is too ignorant about who we are now in physical time to be a success.
There is a real world out there they haven’t noticed.
I'm greatly saddened by the fact that we won't get to watch Scott up on the same stage with Ron Paul. I have noticed how Scott's recent interviews have been especially inspiring. One after another appearance he was on fire each time, literally bringing me to tears with all the humanity he espoused. Can't wait to watch this presentation.
Thank you, Scott! Sad to say your experience with “the movement” is far from unique! In the advent to the illegal war in Iraq, I joined one of the local anti war groups in the Cincinnati area, where I lived then. Their efforts were monitored and steered ... most likely by one of our own secret service people but also by AIPAC ... it was terribly frustrating!
In fighting is definitely an obstacle to progress.. and yes, we have to find away to Kay aside differences for the sake of achieving a focus goal!
That should read: “lay” aside
Wonderful speech, Scott. By disinviting you, the persons responsible have only drawn extra attention to what you have to say.
Scott’s the best an encyclopedia of military and war facts
