Libertarians Against Dissent.

Another way to describe Rand Paul supporters:

As the candidates arrived, a group of Paul supporters pulled a female MoveOn member to the ground and held her there as another Paul supporter stomped on the back of her head and neck.

According to the Louisville Courier Journal, "Lauren Valle of approached Paul and tried to give him an "employee of the month award" from Republicorp...a fake business MoveOn created to symbolize what it says is the merger of the GOP and business interests controlling political speech."

In fairness, we don't know if these supporters are libertarians. Still, for people afraid tyranny, they are more than willing to use it against people they don't like. Which isn't a surprise, given the high odds that these guys belong to the same right-wing grass roots that wants to banish "the Muslims" and keep "the gays" from marrying.
