Apparently there’s a big rally going on up in NYC right now to support the environment. These people are supporting the environment by expending a ton of CO2 to get to the city to decry the use of CO2. The rally itself is self-evidently absurd; I just wanted to highlight one of the signs seen there:
President Barack Obama nominated a former Koch Industries executive and grant-maker at the Charles Koch Foundation to an administration post on Thursday.
A leading Democratic super PAC on Monday suggested that attacking “the Koch Brothers” is a winning strategy. Hours later polls showed surging support for a Republican targeted by that strategy.
Democrats Carolyn Maloney and Jerrold Nadler appeared with none other than David Koch for the unveiling of the revamped fountains in front of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, which was funded by $65 million from the libertarian philanthropist and has been renamed the David H. Koch Plaza.
The Koch brothers—taking a break from such nefarious endeavors as spending money in support of their political positions and, worse, donating to hospitals—are going on the offensive with a campaign to expose the vast web of dark money spun by the Democracy Alliance.
Michigan Democrat Gary Peters is facing blowback from a new Democratic Senate Campaign Committee attack ad targeting the Koch brothers.
Liberals really hate the Koch brothers. Their Koch hatred is so intense than when David Koch donated $100 million to a New York City hospital early this year, liberals protested the hospital.
It doesn’t seem to matter that the Kochs’ views on issues such as gay marriage and immigration often align with their own, liberals are convinced that an ancient evil surges through their Koch veins.
So it must be confusing when, after the overwhelming police response to protests in Ferguson, Missouri prompted many liberal to decry the increasing militarization of the American police force, they were told that Koch brothers agree with them, and have supported efforts to highlight the problem since long before the events in Ferguson. The Daily Beast reports:
“No political contributors are as widely vilified as the Koch brothers,” but a look at recent contribution figures show that they are far from the biggest spenders in politics and that left-wing groups are leaving them in the dust, according to a Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial.
The three network news channels have devoted nine times more coverage to the political activities of Charles and David Koch than those of Tom Steyer and George Soros, Fox News reported on Tuesday.
