Does this latest media-driven moral panic sound familiar? It should:
A Georgia congressman claimed there were reports of people carrying diseases including Ebola across the southern border.
Personalities such as Donald Trump called for stopping all flights from countries where Ebola cases had been found.
Members of Congress came up with their own scenarios, with some suggesting that Ebola could be a security threat to the United States carried in by illegal immigrants or terrorists.
Many Americans believed the lies and propaganda. Why?
Read the article.
What to do about Europe's Muslims? Destroy their businesses? Make them sew the Star and Crescent onto their clothing? Put them in concentration camps? Libertarians have the answer!
"The only solution is to go after Muslims. It is an ugly solution but the only one that is available. Europe could deport their entire Muslim populations if they wanted too. It would be an extreme solution but it could be done. You give them a choice; renounce Islam or get out. If they care more about being Muslim than staying, that is their choice."
This is what libertarians actually believe.
The sky is falling! Again! OMG, the professors at one obscure college are voting on a silly "proposal"! And libertarian Chicken Littles believe the propaganda that is fed them, because they want to! When the "proposal" fails, will Reason.com report it? And will the Chicken Littletarians learn from it? Doubtful. Behold the learning-disabled chat-puppets at Reason.com:
POLITIFACT dissects and corrects false and misleading partisan propaganda from the nation's professional liars, crooks and crackpots. Highly recommended. For objective, intellectually curious humans only.
It's always entertaining when a libertarian steps out of the closet for a moment and reveals his inner fascist:
"I'm about a cunt hair away from changing my view and supporting conscription for every single person between 18 and 20 and forcing them to do manual labor that could be done by heavy machinery. Kids today are soft as baby shit. They need a dose of reality to get them off of their idiotic crusades. Conscription would do it pretty well."
Yep. Scratch a libertarian and you'll expose an authoritarian, itching to take power. This is what libertarians actually believe.
"Hand them a BLT and a pint of beer and demand that they consume them right then and there before giving them asylum."
"Penn Jillette had the solution for this. At every port of entry you have a naked man, naked woman, and a plate of bacon. All the refugees have to do to get in is to lightly kiss the genital of the opposite sex, eat a tiny piece of bacon and voila! Home free."
Haw haw haw! This is what libertarians actually believe.
