Goat-sacrificing, blood-drinking, satanic neo-Nazi to run for Senate in Florida

Every political party has its share of odd bedfellows. Every once in a while, however, a loon slips into the bed sheets who is considered crazy even among the crazies. That is the case for goat-sacrificing, blood-drinking, satanic neo-Nazi Augustus Sol Invictus, who is running for Senate in Florida as a member of the Libertarian Party.

Invictus is by no means a humble man. He touts himself as “of genius intellect,” “God’s gift to humankind where the English language is concerned,” and “everything you ever wanted to be.” Critics have described his thoughts and actions as “absolute insanity.” But it’s not just Invictus’s self-aggrandizing remarks that are landing him in hot water.(1)

Two years ago, Invictus traveled from central Florida to Mojave Desert where he spent a weak praying and fasting. In accordance with a pagan ritual, he expressed thanks upon returning home by sacrificing a goat and drinking its blood.(2)

“Yes, I drank the goat’s blood”

Invictus makes no qualms about his past behavior. “I did sacrifice a goat. I know that’s probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans,” he said. “I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness … Yes, I drank the goat’s blood.”(2)

In addition to admitting that he drank goat’s blood, Invictus says he’s been investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Marshals and other law enforcement agencies. He believes that they are still spying on him, as noted in a series of YouTube videos and writings. In one paper, Invictus renounced his citizenship, and in another paper, he prophesied that a Second Civil War was on the horizon.(1,2)

Although Invictus is open about his radical views, he has taken strides to conceal his identity. As one might suspect, Invictus is not his real name. He is a 32-year-old lawyer who legally changed his name to a Latin phrase which literally means “majestic unconquered sun.”(3)

Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida Adrian Wyllie has called attention to Invictus, urging his fellow party members to call out Invictus for what he really is:

“He is the absolute exact opposite of a Libertarian. He’s a self-proclaimed fascist. He’s promoting a second civil war,” Wyllie said. “It’s absolute insanity. We must explain to people this is the opposite of Libertarians. This guy has no place in the Libertarian Party.”(2)

In response to these remarks, Invictus claims that Wyllie is twisting his words in an effort to run a smear campaign. He’s delighted that his comments have gained so much attention.(2)

“I guess it makes me feel flattered that they think I am a threat to the stability of the system. It makes me think one man can make a difference,” Invictus said.(2)

Satanic neo-Nazi claims he’s a man of peace

Invictus references his four Hispanic children as evidence that he is not a white supremacist, though he admits that white supremacists are drawn to his campaign.

In addition, Invictus insists that he doesn’t advocate violence. Rather, he states that the government has already waged war on the masses, which will only intensify in the days to come.

“The only question is when are the citizens going to start fighting back?” Invictus told sources. “I don’t think I’m the only person who sees a cataclysm coming, but I think I’m the only person saying it, and I think that scares people.”(2)

Although Invictus is a crackpot, he is under no illusions about winning his campaign. He recognizes that self-identifying as a pagan will hurt his chances with a largely Christian electorate. Through the campaign, he hopes to spread his message and speak on the Senate floor.

“If not elected, I still think there is a purpose for all of this and that is to get a message out there, waking them up,” he said. “They are the ones that control the government and not the other way around.”(2)
