They’ve been vilified by the left. If you didn’t know better you’d think they wore black hats and had greasy mustaches. They probably like to torture kittens and tie helpless damsels to railroad tracks. In fact, Harry Reid calls them “about as un-American as anyone I can imagine.” Those dastardly Koch brothers – what horrible people they must be! Here’s proof. It’s their response to Harry Reid’s attack on them, a rant from Reid on the Senate floor:
At Koch, these are the things in which we believe: a government of appropriate size and scope such that it allows Americans the freedom and liberty to pursue happiness and well-being—for themselves and their families. We also believe in a government that operates on a balanced budget and does not burden American taxpayers with things like unfunded liabilities and mandates; a government that respects the integrity of our country’s Constitutional principles; and regulatory bodies that don’t impose needless burdens on entrepreneurs and job creators, both large and small.
This topic is worthy of vigorous dialogue and civil debate between people who exercise mutual respect for others with opposing viewpoints. We are disappointed that Senator Reid is attacking private citizens rather than the problems facing this nation. It is no wonder that Americans have lost faith in Congress.
Wow. They sound awful. In fact, they are such horrible human beings that they’ve donated more than $300 million to cancer research at such institutions as Johns Hopkins, Sloan Kettering and others. And how dare they fund the PBS show “Nova” for so many years along with the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History? They even have the nerve to donate over $150 million to the Museum of Modern Art in NY and the Lincoln Center. What despicable people they are! Check out the Koch Foundation website for more. Of course, the world would be a much better place if everyone was more like Harry Reid. He’s such a fine, upstanding citizen. Here’s a great clip from “Fox & Friends” discussing all this:
And if Harry Reid wants to rail against donors who are trying to buy influence, why just single out the Koch brothers? Why not unions, George Soros and others? I know….rhetorical question. But actually, the answer lies in the fact that the Supreme Court agreed with the Citizens United case and upheld free speech. Obama and his minions have been seething about this ever since and in perfect Saul Alinsky style, found other ways to stifle speech. In reality when the facts are examined, the Koch brothers don’t even come close to other groups that wield political influence and are in the pocket of the Democrat party:
Here’s a so-called “Koch Brothers Guide” published during the election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker with the intent of smearing all of them. Frankly, I plan to buy these products from now on. Note the attempt to slam their father as a founder of the ‘radical right-wing political group John Birch Society.’ I wonder if these geniuses know the Democrat party founded the KKK:
God Bless America – Pass This On!!
