Early Thursday afternoon, screenshots surfaced on the internet of comments made by LNC Vice Chair, Arvin Vohra:
Oh, please spare me. The idea that ‘it’s totally natural for two men two have sex.’ but ‘it’s an abomination for a 25-year-old man to have sex with a 15-year-old girl’ is just too stupid to consider. The libertarian view: do what you want, as long as you don’t hurt anyone else. That’s why we want government out of marriage, love, and sex.
Hours later, multiple groups within the libertarian party condemned the pedophilia justifying comments made by Mr. Vohra.
In a statement released Thursday evening, the LYC stated:
As the largest youth organization within the party, The Libertarian Youth Caucus formally condemns the comments made by the LNC vice chairman, Arvin Vohra. After alienating trans people, low-income individuals, public school teachers, and members of our country’s military over the past few months, his most recent posts to social media give legitimacy to pedophiles and their apologists. Mr. Vohra’s comments demonstrate that he is a poor representative for the Libertarian Party and its guiding ideals of both individual freedom and personal responsibility. Therefore, the Libertarian Youth Caucus calls for his immediate resignation as vice chairman of the Libertarian National Committee.
Many other members of the party have made clear condemnations against Mr. Vohra’s actions, although he, nor any other member of the Libertarian National Committee, have commented on the situation.
