Congressional Candidate In Virginia Admits He’s A Pedophile

2:04 am - 06/01/2018
Nathan Larson also ran online forums for pedophiles and misogynists.

By Jesselyn Cook and Andy Campbell


Nathan Larson is running for Congress as an independent in Virginia. In an interview with HuffPost,
he was open about his pedophilia.


Nathan Larson, a 37-year-old accountant from Charlottesville, Virginia, is running for Congress as an independent candidate in his native state. He is also a pedophile, as he admitted to HuffPost on Thursday, who has bragged in website posts about raping his late ex-wife.

In a phone call, Larson confirmed that he created the now-defunct websites suiped.org and incelocalypse.today ― chat rooms that served as gathering places for pedophiles and violence-minded misogynists like himself. HuffPost contacted Larson after confirming that his campaign website shared an IP address with these forums, among others. His sites were terminated by their domain host on Tuesday.

On the phone, he was open about his pedophilia and seemingly unfazed about his long odds of attaining government office.

“A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it,” he said. “People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.”

When asked whether he’s a pedophile or just writes about pedophilia, he said, “It’s a mix of both. When people go over the top there’s a grain of truth to what they say.”

Asked whether there was a “grain of truth” in his essay about father-daughter incest and another about raping his ex-wife repeatedly, he said yes, offering that plenty of women have rape fantasies.

According to Larson’s campaign manifesto, his platform as a “quasi-neoreactionary libertarian” candidate includes protecting gun ownership rights, establishing free trade and protecting “benevolent white supremacy,” as well as legalizing incestuous marriage and child pornography.

In the manifesto, Larson called Nazi leader Adolf Hitler a “white supremacist hero.” He urged Congress to repeal the Violence Against Women Act, adding, “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands.” He also showed sympathy for men who identify as involuntary celibates, or incels, suggesting it is unfair that they “are forced to pay taxes for schools, welfare, and other support for other men’s children.”

Using the pseudonyms Leucosticte and Lysander, Larson frequently participated in conversations on his own message boards, he confirmed to HuffPost.


Larson posted as “Lysander” on his now-defunct website, suiped.org.

As Lysander on suiped.org, a forum for “suicidal pedophiles,” Larson wrote numerous posts endorsing child rape and other forms of sexual abuse.

“Why doesn’t every pedo just focus on making money so they can get a pedo-wife and then either impregnate her with some fucktoys or adopt some fucktoys?” he wrote on the platform in October. “That would accommodate both those who are and aren’t into incest. And of course, the adoption process lets you pick a boy or a girl.”

Larson has a 3-year-old daughter who lives with relatives. He told HuffPost that he relinquished his parental rights during a custody battle. His ex-wife got a court-ordered restraining order against him in 2015 before committing suicide. He has since remarried, he says, and is now living in Catlett, Virginia.

Larson used the moniker “Leucosticte” on incelocalypse.today ― a forum for incels who are pedophiles that was removed this week after the website Babe contacted the domain host. There, he identified as a “hebephilic rapist,” noting that he’s not a typical incel because he’d had sex by raping his ex-wife.

According to the site, which HuffPost viewed before it was taken down, “incelocalypse” refers to “the day we make the jailbaits our rape-slaves.” (The term “jailbait” is slang for a person who is under the legal age of consent for sex.)


Larson posted as “Leucosticte” on incelocalypse.today.

HuffPost did not view any posts explicitly stating that he has engaged in sexual activity with minors, although he repeatedly expressed a desire to have sex with infants and children, including his own daughter. In the phone call, Larson said that the word “pedophile” is “vague” and “just a label,” adding that it’s “normal” for men to be attracted to underage women. He said he did not commit any crimes.

In a 3,300-word essay on incelocalypse.today, titled “Here’s How to Psyche Yourself Up to Feel Entitled to Rape,” Larson tells other members: “Don’t forget: feminism is the problem, and rape is the solution.” On the platform, he also advocated for father-daughter marriage, killing women and raping virgins.

Larson is less worried about his run for Congress than about his sites coming down. He told HuffPost that the termination of his websites is an affront to his freedom of speech and that he’s going to try to get them hosted elsewhere. Not that it’ll matter ― there are still plenty of forums where incels and other such communities can congregate. The removal of Larson’s sites caused an uproar on incels.me, a separate, much larger forum for incels.

Larson’s political ambitions span more than a decade. He first ran for Congress in Virginia’s 1st District in 2008 on what he described as an “anarcho-capitalist” platform. That same year, he sent a letter to the Secret Service threatening to kill the president, which landed him in federal prison for 14 months and barred him from seeking public office.

But in 2016, then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) restored voting and other civil rights to thousands of felons, allowing Larson to campaign yet again. In 2017 he ran in Virginia’s House of Delegates District 31 and secured less than 2 percent of the vote. Now he is gunning for a seat in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District.


On websites, Nathan Larson, 37, has advocated for rape, pedophilia, incest and kidnapping.

Until it was pulled down, Larson’s site Nathania.org, a wiki page with details about his latest candidacy, featured posts titled “A Man Should Be Allowed to Choke His Wife to Death as Punishment for Cutting Her Hair Short Without Permission, or Other Acts of Gross Insubordination,” “Advantages of Father-Daughter Incest” and “The Justifiability of an Incel’s Kidnapping a Girl and Keeping Her as His Rape-Slave for Sex and Babymaking.” Wiki pages can be edited by other people, but Larson confirmed he wrote these posts as well as several other disturbing entries.

In “Let’s Define What Rape Is,” a 3,000-word essay posted on Nathania.org as well as other incel sites, Larson wrote: “Women are objects, to be taken care of by men like any other property, and for powerful men to insert themselves into as it pleases them, and as they believe will be in women’s own interests. In most cases, their interests are aligned, as long as the man is strong. Female sex-slaves actually get a much better deal than animals, because in most cases, they are allowed to reproduce, unlike animals raised for meat or companionship.”

When asked what his constituents would think about his pedophiliac writings, he said, “People are open-minded.”

He continued, “A lot of people who disagreed with someone like Trump … might vote for them anyway just because the establishment doesn’t like them.”

who's married to him now?!?

That's what I'm wondering. His first wife committed suicide after divorcing him. I can't imagine the abuse his second wife must be enduring.

IKR, my first question when I read this! Who marries this man? O.o

Despite being a completely non violent person, I have really come to think that there are people who don't deserve to breathe air.

This kind of individual is why I really believe in having strong hate speech laws (i.e. stronger than in the US).

Also, I hope something has been done to prevent this guy from having access to children. (Reading through the article, I wasn't so sure about that.)

Here is an excerpt from an interesting argument from legal philosopher Jeremy Waldron:

(From: 'The Harm in Hate Speech', by Jeremy Waldron: https://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/24/books/review/the-harm-in-hate-speech-by-jeremy-waldron.html)

"The United States is almost alone among Western liberal democracies in not punishing what is called hate speech — oral or written messages that “incite hatred” against a person or group on the basis of their race, religion, sex, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Canada, Britain, Denmark, Germany and New Zealand have such laws, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights purports to require signatory nations to pass them. (...) In his engaging new book, “The Harm in Hate Speech,” the legal philosopher Jeremy Waldron urges Americans to reconsider that tradition. (...)

Waldron begins with the premise that in a “well-ordered society” not only must all people be protected by the law; they are entitled to live in confidence of this protection. “Each person . . . should be able to go about his or her business, with the assurance that there will be no need to face hostility, violence, discrimination or exclusion by others.” Hate speech undermines this essential public good. “When a society is defaced with anti-Semitic signage, burning crosses and defamatory racial leaflets,” Waldron says, this assurance of security “evaporates. A vigilant police force and a Justice Department may still keep people from being attacked or excluded,” but the objects of hate speech are deprived of the assurance that the society regards them as people of equal dignity.

Even when the hate speech comes from isolated fringe elements, themselves despised by a majority of the public, Waldron tells us, we should not regard the harm as insignificant. “Precisely because the public good that is under attack is provided in a general, diffuse and implicit way,” he explains, “the flare-up of a few particular incidents can have a disproportionate ­effect.”

That, then, is the harm in hate speech. Waldron expects his readers to regard these harms as an argument for passing laws on the European model."

(The link above actually argues against Waldron's thesis, btw.)

I'm not saying that hate speech laws are a perfect guarantee: it is also true that they can be misused. (I personally feel very strongly that the use of these laws in France to attack the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement(https://bdsmovement.net/) is a gross misuse of these laws which may even have the side effect of aggravating anti-semitism in France).(1)

Anyways, food for thought.

WHAT IN THE EVERLOVING FUCK AND WHY IS HE RUNNING FOR CONGRESS??? GOD JUST KILL THIS MAN WHERE HE STANDS

I simply cannot believe that an abomination like THAT actually exists.

Trump's election has really ushered in a disturbing era where all of the worst types of men on the internet- MRAs, incels, the "I think you'll find it's actually ephebophilia" flavor libertarians -are not only crawling out from under their rocks but loudly proclaiming their hatred of women as a perfectly rational response to feminism and the perception of losing the culture war. If they're not running people down with trucks, or shooting up schools, they're running for office.

"Incel" enters the offline public consciousness and we get think pieces about the best way to get these poor sad boys laid. Think about that. A man runs a truck into a crowd, a kid shoots up a school and men in positions of power and influence empathize not with the victims, but with the murderers. Murdering people because you can't get your dick wet is not a monstrous act in the minds of these men, it's the inevitable outcome of denying them what's rightfully theirs.

The U.S. is going to become an even more precarious place for women. I hate that so many people write off the white supremacist contingent of Trump's base saber rattling for an ethnostate as a fringe element. They're not. Shitheads like Steve King in Iowa are already in office. Rolling back access to abortion is tethered to the growing concern about white birth rates. Fear of being out-bred, outnumbered by the Other is fueling this. And multiple op-eds talking about "redistributing sex" are not a thought exercise. They're trial balloons.

iac.

This isn't a fringe idea at all -I've read some books (one example which comes to mind is a fantasy novel written by a woman) where a (not satirical) element of the story was that of women volunteering to keep young men happy by engaging in prostitution for the 'greater good' that would come from young men not being denied (frequent) sex.(1)

I remember reading, also, 'The Rainbow Cadenza' by J. Neil Schulman, where women are drafted into organized prostitution in order to keep straight men happy. (I think the book has problems and it is problematic, but it did make me think which I appreciated.)

When I read this, my (female) friends' general response was: that could never happen.

Except it could.

Finally, I think it really bears noting that there is also a big difference in the way white women's and WOC's bodies have been and continue to be treated, which is something discussed in several critiques of 'The Handmaid's Tale'. (2,3)

It's very telling that the most repeated "solution" to incels I see online is to shove them off onto sex workers to fix. This is horrifying because siccing violent misogynists on sex workers will likely result in increased abuse, rape, and murder of sex workers.

Thank you for the links. I'd seen some critique regarding the post-racial cop out happening on Handmaid's Tale elsewhere. Haven't watched the show and definitely need a refresher on the book because I'd completely forgotten Atwood hand-waving the entire black population into camps never to be mentioned again. :/ Seems like most western dystopian fiction is ultimately just “what if white people had to endure the lived experiences of poc?” Even the alien invasion genre is all just colonizers fearful of being colonized by something with bigger guns.

I read Killing the Black Body by Dorothy Roberts for a class and it discusses the commodification of black reproduction during slavery, the bolstering of the eugenics movement tied up in the history of Planned Parenthood, the forced sterilizations, medical experiments in pursuit of contraceptive research, the welfare queen myth, etc. It really crystallized for me that the history of reproductive rights balances on this terrible fulcrum where white women achieving the freedom not to have children comes at the cost of black women (and other woc) being denied the freedom to have children. And the conversation about reproductive freedom myopically centering abortion effectively obscures this reality.

Sorry for the belated response on my part!!

tbh, I'd forgotten about the book myself until I read critiques of the show. :)

Wow. Thanks for the reference, I hadn't heard of Roberts' book -I will definitely go read it.

And iac.

There has got to be some sort of brain damage for a person to think like this and say it out loud with so much self assurance. He's even running for Congress! Wow! I mean, I realise that men are more often than not entitled, lacking empathy and selfish to the core, but they at least know enough not to say stuff like this out loud because they will out themselves as monsters.

This guy needs to be removed from society ASAP. There must be grounds to arrest him in here somwhere! He probably has a long trail of victims behind him. He has nothing of value to contribute and has already caused enough evil.

I legit think I'm going to be sick, now. Jesus Fing Christ.

People are open-minded.

I don't think the majority of any population is open-minded to THAT.

Of course he'd be a neoreactionary.

Meanwhile, I see right-wingers accusing leftists of normalizing pedophilia.

This is my question: restoring voting rights to people who have served their time in prison is one thing. Why are they able to run for office too? I've never agreed with taking away the voting rights of someone just because they've served time in prison in the first place, but there should at least be base standards as to the kind of person who runs for office. And when I say base standards, I'm not talking about the candidate being super religious or any of that crap. I'm just saying that this guy fails on all counts and is clearly a monster on top of everything else.

I hope he's at least being investigated. Him thinking he can "come out" as a pedophile and people will be "open minded" about it, is to me, just a hint of his depravity.

Has the world gone fucking nuts, or is it just me? Because this whole thing is insane to me.
