Skip to comments.Cato Project: Islam ‘Consistent’ with ‘Libertarian Principles’, ‘Tolerance’, ‘Individualism’
Posted on 09/07/2017 7:27:04 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Libertarianism.org, a project from the Cato Institute, claimed Islamic teachings are consistent [with] many libertarian principles, such as tolerance, property rights & individualism in a tweet on Tuesday.
In the post linked in the tweet, Libertarianism.org also praised Ibn Khaldun as a libertarian hero, describing him as the most consistent of the many free-market economists in Islamic history, despite the fact that Khaldun promoted slavery.
Therefore, the Negro nation are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because [Negroes] have little [that is essentially] human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated, Khaldun previously claimed.
After tweeting the post, Libertarianism.org received a large amount of criticism.

Today I Learned: The Cato institute knows nothing about Libertarianism or Islam.
Omg! The Cato institute is either incredibly ignorant about Islam and all the millions of innocent people it’s slaughtered tortured conquered murdered bombed and terrorized, or else Cato has sold out to the islamonazis. Horrible either way
It’s clear that, like many organizations & foundations, Cato has been taken over by anti-Western globalists seeking the demise of the West!
So, is Cato taking Saudi money?
What happened to the Cato institute? They used to be good guys jeez does everything get corrupted?
Wtf??? Did they even read it??
Left out forcing your religion on others through violence.
Are they controlled by McMaster?
Another bunch in desperate need of a cranial extraction procedure....
“Today I Learned: The Cato institute knows nothing about Libertarianism or Islam.”
Lost, Cato is.
Cyclical theory of history
IBn K met Genghis Khan, IIRC
I was thinking the same thing.
Hey brother Boots!!!!
Methinks, if Cato and “true Islam” ever came face to face, they’d have a real “come ta Jesus” moment...
Just sayin’... Maybe those eggheads should uproot themselves and go spend sometime in one of those islamic paradises like Afghanistan or Asscrackistan for a few years, then come back and tell us about it.
Remember the old days when there were sane people at the Cato Institute?
I miss the old days.
I'm thinking Libertarianism.org left out some comments from their tweet (maybe they were limited by characters). They meant to write:
'Islamic teachings (such as bribery from the Saudis) are consistent [with] many libertarian principles, such as tolerance, property rights, individualism, and having no core principles that will prevent accepting money from anyone'
Why do I suspect that a sizable donation in Saudi Riyals was recently deposited into the account of the Cato Institute (or some of its management)?
Sounds like Cato has become infested with libtards and isslime...
“Its clear that, like many organizations & foundations, Cato has been taken over by anti-Western globalists seeking the demise of the West!”
That’s what it is - the left is very quietly (sometimes not so quietly), and effectively, getting their tentacles into pretty much every institution that supposedly supports us...including churches, the GOP, corporations, Fox News, etc.
