All libertarians, Extropians included, are being linked to the
militia movement and worse paramilitarists by the mass media via the
purposely chosen smear "word anti-government".

Racist fanatics have always had a paramilitary bent. The recent
militia movement which grew in response to increased gun control is not
essentially racist by any means though of course it would be impossible to
say there are no racists involved.
