VP of Libertarian Cato Institute Criticizes Ron Paul As A Conspiracy Theorist And Xenophobe

The Cato Institute is a Libertarian think tank, funded by the Koch brothers, that claims to be dedicated to individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace. Cato’s VP of Research, Brink Lindsey, recently sent multiple tweets calling Ron Paul a xenophobe and a conspiracy theorist. He described Paul’s philosophy as a “hideous corruption of libertarian ideas.” [We expect to see a loss of public support for Cato and The Koch Brothers if Lindsay is not jettisoned into deep space for these comments.] –GEG

Following his attack on Ron Paul, Lindsey also attacked libertarian theorist and luminary Murray Rothbard, whom Ron Paul had called “the founder of the modern libertarian movement.” In the tweet, Lindsey blamed Rothbard for the “ugly illiberal streak” within the libertarian movement:

This is not the first time that Lindsey attacked Ron Paul or the people surrounding him. In a 2007 article authored by Chris Hayes for The Nation, Lindsey described Ron Paul supporters as “a weird group of people,” consisting of libertarians, anti-war types, nationalists, and “xenophobes.”

Brink Lindsey has a long history of promoting views at odds with the grassroots libertarians, “xenophobes,” and “anti-war types” he derides. For example, in 2002 Lindsey expressed his support for the Iraq War, the 1991 Gulf War, war in North Korea, and other globalist interventions in Reason, stating that he “would support military action against Iraq even if 9/11 had never happened and there were no such thing as Al Qaeda.”

I saw a video of a panel of the CATO institute accuse a responding high level investigator at 911 ground zero a “conspiracy theorist” while he was holding up the documents. Is it possible the “CATO Institute” part of a socialist tag-team, (see Zygmund Dobbs “The Great Deceit”), witches coven, or similar entity parading around in respectable clothes? Nothing else makes any sense.


CATO and their Vice Pres. Brink Linsey are CIA bent on co-opting the Liberty Patriots from Individualism to Nationalism or Globalism.
