La dernière trouvaille du gouvernement américain ? Faire passer les libertariens pour de dangereux terroristes.

Voici un extrait d’un document préparé par le « Department of Homeland Security » et remis à tous les corps policiers:

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.

Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use.

Pour le gouvernement américain, tous ceux qui sont en faveur d’un petit gouvernement, bref, tous ceux qui ne sont pas d’accord avec les politiques de Barack Obama, ne valent pas mieux que les membres du KKK. Ceux qui ont un minimum de culture politique auront compris que les libertariens sont aux antipodes des groupes racistes.

Voici comment Ayn Rand décrivait ce fléau:

Ayn Rand

« Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors.

Racism claims that the content of a man’s mind (not his cognitive apparatus, but its content) is inherited; that a man’s convictions, values and character are determined before he is born, by physical factors beyond his control. This is the caveman’s version of the doctrine of innate ideas—or of inherited knowledge—which has been thoroughly refuted by philosophy and science. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men.

Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination. »

En assimilant les libertariens aux groupes suprémacistes/terroristes pour pouvoir les mettre sous haute surveillance, l’Administration Obama ressuscite le McCarthisme. Même l’Administration Bush n’a pas osé descendre aussi bas pour diaboliser ses critiques.
