Augustus Sol Invictus draws support from neo-Nazis, supports eugenics and sacrificed a goat and drank its blood.
A Florida man running for U.S. Senate is supported by neo-Nazis and acknowledged he once sacrificed a goat and drank its blood.
Augustus Sol Invictus is the Florida Libertarian Party’s candidate and has faced other accusations ranging from his support of eugenics, prophesizing a “great war” within America’s borders and drawing support of neo-Nazis.
Invictus, who declines to reveal his given name, is the only Libertarian candidate looking to fill the vacant seat left by presidential hopeful Marco Rubio. His position as the only representative of the party led now-former party chairman Adrian Wyllie to resign in protest.
Invictus, an avowed pagan, sang a different tune on Friday when pressed further on some of his beliefs and practices.
“I did sacrifice a goat. I know that’s probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans,” he told the Associated Press.
“I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness…Yes, I drank the goat’s blood.”
Invictus, an avowed pagan, says he has sacrificed a goat (not this one) and consumed its blood.
In a Facebook post from September trying to refute the claims that Wyllie and others had placed on Invictus privately, he chose to argue the semantics of the accusations saying that he had never advocated for a “race-based civil war” but did not dispute his prediction of a civil war.
When asked by the AP if he still believed in a war that would alter the course of the world, Invictus claimed the government was already at war with its people and that he was not the only person to foresee a revolution.
Invictus has not been asked further about his campaign receiving support from neo-Nazis. Because in the same September Facebook post, instead of attempting to disassociate himself from hate groups, Invictus doubled down when describing a case he had worked on where 14 neo-Nazis were arrested on charges of paramilitary training.
“It has been said that I associate with neo-Nazis and skinheads. You’re goddamn right I do. I am a criminal defense lawyer, and I am proud of the work I have done for the American Front,” Invictus wrote.
“Every Libertarian in America should be supporting them as victims of an overreaching Government, and for the record, I am proud to call them my friends.”
