Because in the case of Bernanke, he runs a hybrid quasi public institution that has been granted a govt charter for a monopoly of the money supply. It was created by govt to enable the govt to spend recklessly. You missed the enabling part which was stated. Or you deliberately ignored it because it doesn't suit the strawman you're making here. I'm ahead of you though. The Fed is not an institution created by any market forces that delivered goods or services that people willing exchanged their money for on a voluntary basis. And it actually really does rape the public while pretending to operate for the public good.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
