I just go by the people I have known 'in real life' and folks I have
corresponded with (and/or seen correspondence from) on teh interwebs.
To date I have not seen Fundamentalist and Libertarian identities
coexisting in one head.  But hey, as I said I do not doubt it can happen
- though I suspect that easily led fools who get their self-labeling
directives confused would account for most cases.

Ah so:  "Fake Libertarians" resemble "true Conservatives" and display
the same gang signs, so to speak.  I can relate - see above.  But since
some "fake" guise own the rights to the Libertarian™ brand, and the
infrastructure of the U.S. Libertarian Party, I find it convenient to
just call them "Libertarians."

A hypothetical not-fake-Libertarian, I would most likely call an
Anarchist.  But even so, I somehow missed seeing the association between
the Libertarian Party, or the folks who call themselves Libertarians in
online venues, and the Religious Reich's theocratic agenda.

Could it be that "failure to denounce" other people's religious beliefs
means one shares them?  I would view that perception as the product of a
Rebel As You Are Told propaganda regimen.  We get that all the time, as
part of a larger Divide The Conquered agenda that keeps electoral
politics from having adverse impacts on the authority of the U.S. ruling

Both views are based on a laughable and fallacious 'theory' of 'property', which goes to show that these 'libertarians' do not actually value liberty. 

Libertarians, fake or real per any kind of consensus definition, who
show "rabid opposition to free speech"?  I will need to see examples
before I can comment on that.  But I must admit to grave skepticism...
