Liberal writer calls Daily Paul, Infowars part of a Billion Dollar Libertarian Media EmpireSubmitted by ptpete25 on Fri, 11/15/2013 - 20:36
The funny thing is, he really believes that, and for good reason too. The establishment thinks every person reached is a certain dollar spent. They see the Daily Paul and our libertarian outlets getting massive amounts of visitors, so they assume we are spending massive amounts of money. I loved in For Liberty, Michael showed the DP headquarters... in his kitchen nook.
The article is a little nauseating to read through, but to me it is an unintended compliment to our movement. It's very clear he doesn't understand us at all. He even says, "Any traction they’ve achieved has little to do with these 'ideas'..." What?! I would say all of the traction we've gained has to do with the ideas.
I love the conclusion too, "If we simply let them win, these fanatics might learn the hard way how reliant they are on the state — possibly after they contract e coli from un-inspected beef. That would be a lovely irony to watch, if it didn’t come at too high a price. " Yeah, because the government never allows E. Coli to break out. And what part of our ideas says no one would inspect meat? Are we just stupid, and decide to eat anything because the government is not there to tell us what's good and what's bad.
