Thomas J. DiLorenzo - SVR Advisory Board Member revisited
In my post below I provided some background on Second Vermont Republic advisory board member Thomas J. DiLorenzo's earlier work for Big Tobacco.  I also suggest that he has a somewhat comparative goal in the bizarro alternative histories and essays that he's been churning out in print and on the web, in addition to lecturing about, on Abraham Lincoln.  He's really turned it into quite an industry.  Even I can admire the entrepreneurial skill necessary to generate income from something that is basically nothing.
But there's an even darker side to this prominent advisor to Vermont's secession discussion.
As I read through the archive of his essays at LewRockwell.com  I came across a few of his thoughts on issues besides his very apparent Lincoln obsession.  One, called "Hurrah for 'Sweat Shops' - They help the poor, among their other virtues," or "How 'Sweatshops' Help the Poor," boils down essentially to an offshore tactic for union busting in America. 
He's also written an essay called the "Truth About the 14th Amendment."   That's the amendment with those pesky civil rights, citizenship/voting rights and due process rights that led to the end of previously legal segregation.  He believes that an argument can be made for its abolition, and that's important to white separatists like those in the League of the South and the Sons of Confederate Veterans with whom he's so deeply involved.  
Certainly SVR could not have know that he is a frequent poster on a neo-Nazi, jew baiting messageboard at the Vanguard News Network 
Here's how the ADL has described Alex Linder's Vanguard News Network
"The Web site consists of two parts: a news section, where Linder posts news articles and opinion pieces of relevance to white supremacists, and an online message forum, where white supremacists from around the world can post messages and engage in on-line discussions and debates."
"The ideology that Linder has sought to infuse into his site is exemplified by VNN's header: "No Jews, Just Right." 
DiLorenzo's posts at VNN don't descend into the crude racial and anti-Semetic slurs that are common on these sites.  He's to much of a scholarly, condescending Uptown Klan kinda guy to engage in that sort of thing.  He merely drops in from time to time to toss a bit of red-meat to the more expressive types, and to Linder, that confirms their worldview.
