Adrian Wyllie — the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida — has resigned his position to draw attention to the United States Senate campaign of Augustus Sol Invictus, who has admitted to sacrificing a goat and drinking its blood back in 2013.
“He is the absolute exact opposite of a Libertarian. He’s a self-proclaimed fascist. He’s promoting a second civil war,” states Wyllie. “It’s absolute insanity. We must explain to people this is the opposite of Libertarians. This guy has no place in the Libertarian Party.”
Wyllie knew that the 32-year-old lawyer would be trouble ever since he walked into the race, claiming that he’s using his candidacy to actively recruit neo-Nazis into the party in hopes of starting a civil war against the government.
Sol Invictus — “who changed his given name to a Latin phrase that means ‘majestic unconquered sun'” — admits to performing the pagan ritual yet took issue with what he calls Wyllie’s smear campaign.
“I did sacrifice a goat. I know that’s probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans,” he told the Orlando Sentinel. “I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness … Yes, I drank the goat’s blood.”
“I don’t think I’m the only person who sees a cataclysm coming, but I think I’m the only person saying it, and I think that scares people… I guess it makes me feel flattered that they think I am a threat to the stability of the system. It makes me think one man can make a difference.”
