John Brennan, an ex-CIA director from Obama’s administration, claims the federal government is targeting “religious extremists,” conservatives, and libertarians for extra scrutiny. All these people are said to be potential domestic terrorists.
He recently stated on MSNBC, “(M)embers of the Biden team … are now moving in laser-like fashion, to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of the country and they gain strength, and it brings together an unholy alliance frequently of religious extremists — so authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians.”
What scary company!
For people who only want to leave everyone else alone, libertarians sure seem to attract a lot of powerful enemies.
The worst things libertarians do are exercise the natural human right of self-defense and engage in non-compliance when legislation violates human rights. Not terrorist behaviors, but behaviors for which the government-supremacists hate and fear us.
Maybe it’s because we — along with conservatives — are the ones with most of the guns.
The truth is, John Brennan should look in a mirror.
Brennan and his sort are the authoritarians; the people who crave and worship imaginary political authority. According to fellow liberty advocate and author Larken Rose, belief in political authority is the world’s most dangerous superstition. I think he’s correct.
How can Brennan fear fascists? Political government is always fascistic as well as being socialistic. Does he fear himself?
I would say Brennan is also a religious extremist, only his god is the state. Look who and what he is willing to sacrifice for his religion. Anyone who doesn’t buy the leftist narrative is seen as a danger. You’re probably an infidel, just like me, and liberty — which he appears bigoted against — must be treated as blasphemy.
If what he says is true, the Biden administration seems to agree with him.
Will Joe Biden wait for Congress to make up legislation to target us, or will he squeeze out yet another executive order? I wonder if they’ll give Brennan the job of going after these “dangerous” people. Time will tell.
I wasn’t a supporter of Trump, nor a supporter of any president or even of the office, but I like Trump as a person a lot more than I like Biden. So far, Biden’s notion of “unity” is one I can do without.
