Did the Biden Administration Label Libertarians Terrorists?

The new Biden Administration is moving fast in their response to COVID-19 and taking on the extremists that stormed the U.S. Capitol a few weeks ago. However, have they labeled a group as domestic terrorists that had nothing to do with the attack? According to reports, Libertarians have been labeled by the new Biden Administration as domestic terrorists.

Former Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential candidate Spike Cohen reported this the other day and has caused some stir in the Libertarian community.

PolitiFact says it is not true.

Jeremy “Spike” Cohen, the 2020 Libertarian Party vice presidential nominee, has sparked outrage against President Joe Biden on social media with claims that his administration labeled Libertarians terrorists.

“A silver lining to the Biden administration labeling Libertarians terrorists is that the CIA will probably start giving us money and weapons now,” Cohen wrote in a Jan. 22 Facebook post.

The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)

There is no evidence that the Biden administration has labeled members of the Libertarian Party or people with libertarian views terrorists. 

While Biden referred to the rioters who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6 as “domestic terrorists,” he did not single out libertarians in the roughly 20-minute speech he delivered Jan. 7. 

I am sure that there were some Libertarian minded people in the crowd on Jan. 6th storming the Capitol. Unfortunately, there are some Libertarians that fell for the rhetoric of Trump believing that he would be this small government savior that turned out to be completely false!

  1. And there were plenty of Trump supporters that were of all political parties that did not participate in the Capitol breach. What about the vast majority who attended the rally then went home afterward? (or waited in the original venue?) The MSM is full of hypocrites, and there are others who should rightfully be called out too. I grant that the Biden administration did not call Libertarians terrorists, to the best of my knowledge. However, former CIA director John Brennan did, and also lumped a variety of other groups in as well. So Spike Cohen was not completely off base, but probably should have clarified his statement.
