They do this quite often.

A letter in today's Express-News:

In his article “Republican political wave could hit rocky shore” (Other Views, July 18), Michael Gerson takes time out to throw some eggs at libertarianism. His comments are quite inaccurate.
Many people who throw eggs at libertarians do indeed take liberties with the truth about the libertarian philosophy. Almost to a man and woman, they paint libertarians as, well, anarchists -- as if anarchism and libertarianism were one and the same. I know well why they do it, but you'd think if their position was so strong, they wouldn't have to resort to lies.
