CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A man running for office openly admits to being a pedophile, misogynist and incest supporter.
Nathan Larson is an independent Virginia Congressional candidate with a long history of vying for political office. Larson's first bid for office was in 2008, but it ended in 2009 when he spent over a year in jail for threatening to kill then-president Barack Obama.
In an interview with HuffPost, he open about his pedophilia. He said, "When people go over the top there's a grain of truth to what they say." He also confirmed he created two chatrooms for pedophiles and misogynists — suiped.org and incelocalypse.today. Both have been recently shut down.
On these sites, he admitted to raping his ex-wife and posted an essay describing how to "feel entitled to rape." Larson admitted that there was a "grain of truth" about repeatedly raping his ex-wife, insisting that lots of women have fantasies about being raped.
Larson's ex-wife committed suicide in 2015, shortly after she got a restraining order against him.
Another of his websites that was taken down, Nathania.org, had a number of posts justifying spousal abuse, father-daughter incest and the keeping of sex-slaves.
Larson told HuffPost he wasn't worried about his political campaign, saying, "People are open-minded."
Gallup's annual Values and Beliefs survey would confirm Larson's statement. Conducted from May 1 to May 10, it found, "From 2011 onward, notable shifts leftward are apparent for actions such as doctor-assisted suicide, gay/lesbian relations, sex between unmarried people and having a baby out of wedlock." Gallup reports views on pornography have changed more than any of the other in the poll.
Gallup also found that America is the most liberal it has ever been. Results show record high acceptance for birth control, divorce, pre-marital sex, gay relations, doctor-assisted suicide and polygamy, while a record number of people find testing on animals and the death penalty morally wrong. Gallup found more people are morally opposed to medical testing on animals than they are to abortion.
Originally a member of the Libertarian Party, in 2017 it censured Larson and expelled him from the party. In a statement, the party wrote:
No matter how he attempts to rationalize his opinion, they are far outside the realm of the Libertarian Party Platform. If he persists in his campaign for office, he will find that his ideas and previous writings are considered repugnant to the people of Virginia and rightfully so.
Larson's campaign website has also been taken down.
