Americans that Lew Rockwell Hates

"Companies That Unions Hate" from

How dare these firms provide jobs for hardworking poor people in the Third World, and good prices for their customers here, promoting the international division of labor and international peace, rather than go out of business with lazy, protectionist, nationalist unionoids in Uncle Samland? I pledge in the coming year to patronize all members of the “2010 Sweatshop Hall of Shame”: Abercrombie and Fitch, Gymboree, Hanes, Ikea, Kohl’s, LL Bean, Pier 1 Imports, Propper International, and Walmart.

I, for one, will cheer when the vaunted "international division of labor" prices Lew Rockwell out of the market for libertarian hallucinations. A man, who openly gloats, in prideful vanity, about the economic annihilation of his own nation deserves a fate befitting of the middle-class Americans he derides as "unionids."

Here's Lew Rockwell on free trade:

But, generally speaking, the Protective system in these days is conservative, while the Free Trade system works destructively. It breaks up old nationalities and carries antagonism of proletariat and bourgeoisie to the uttermost point. In a word, the Free Trade system hastens the Social Revolution. In this revolutionary sense alone, gentlemen, I am in favor of Free Trade.

Oops! That was Karl Marx.
