Leftists RAGE After United Negro College Fund Accepts $25 Million From Koch Brothers
Daily Caller ^ | 06/09/2014 | Eric Owens

Posted on 06/10/2014 8:51:22 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Now that the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) has accepted a $25 million donation from Charles and David Koch, at least one Ivy League professor is worried sick and a bunch of leftists have taken to Twitter to express their rage.

Marybeth Gasman, a higher education professor at the University of Pennsylvania claimed that the UNCF – a charitable organization dedicated to helping black people get college degrees – is “wrong” to accept this particular $25 million to help black people get college degrees, according to Inside Higher Ed.

Gasman bellowed that Koch organizations have been “deeply affiliated with the Tea Party.” She alleges that Tea Party leaders want to weaken the political interests of black Americans.

Inside Higher Ed suggests that the wrath about the $25 million gift arises because critics worry that the scholarships will favor students who share the largely conservative and libertarian principles of Charles and David Koch.

The plan for the $18.5 million UNCF/Koch Scholars Program is to provide tuition assistance to “exemplary students with demonstrated financial need and an interest in the study of how entrepreneurship, economics, and innovation contribute to well-being for individuals, communities, and society.”

How dare you, Koch Brothers!

Don’t you know every black person is supposed to be a Democrat? Those that aren’t are “Uncle Toms.” Ask Clarence Thomas.

I find it disgusting the assumption that all blacks must be left wing democrats, forever consigned to life with their hands out asking, “Please sir, may I have some more?”

“She alleges that Tea Party leaders want to weaken the political interests of black Americans.”

Code words for “help blacks get off the liberal Democrat plantation”, which they will not allow.

The Koch brothers are giving this money to the United Negro College Fund apparently without any strings attached about how the money should be used. Would liberals have been happier if they had given this money to Al Sharpton’s or Jesse Jackson’s scam organizations that enrich Sharpton and Jackson and do little to actually help minorities?

If the Koch brothers really wanted to make the lefts head explode, start an organization called “The Underground Railroad” designed to help Blacks and other minorities escape the democrat plantation through education.

I though this was a satire story from the Semi-News satire site. Hannity and others ran with it.

What? No degrees in gender studies?

The Democrat masses are skewered that the Nigras, as LBJ called them, will leave their plantation. How dare they act as though they can make it in this world without their Democrat owners.

Dick Cheney gave $8,000,000 to a Charity helping Black Children’s Education in D.C.

Remember, this is the same Dick Cheney that supported Gay Marriage years ago when Obama and Biden were still Haters.

Well, one can’t argue with brilliant, intellectual, really-really smart,
Progressive geniuses.

Those Koch brothers are evil, possibly-gun-loving, bible-thumping,
Christan morons and one has to protect the revolution from such people.

See? Ya know?

Lady you need to get of the college campus occasionally.
I personally know several black folk that are members of the Tea Party.

In contemporary American society money trumps all values. It is hypocrisy for Liberals to rage against money as they of all people ascribe the greatest value to money-especially money that belongs to other people.

Damn the kids. They pale to insignificance when the straw man of racism gets knocked down. Without that, the left might have to be truthful about their opposition.

Maybe blacks aren’t all that into the left’s homosexual agenda, and the faggots who run the left are offended.

Here’s more from the insidehighered website:

To the extent the Koch organizations want to significantly reduce the scope of state and federal governments, they have the right to promote those views, Gasman said, but she asked if the UNCF should be associating with Koch in light of these efforts. Programs such as Pell Grants, student loans, Head Start and others have helped countless Americans, of all races and ethnicities, she said.

And these programs — endangered by the Koch political agenda of shrinking government — “have built the black middle class”

Yes, it’s wrong to give money to a fund that goes to people based on race.

Now this just doesn’t make sense. Most self-proclaimed black leaders constantly attack conservatives for being greedy and not willing to pour their money down ratholes er excuse me I mean give to causes these black hucksters deem worthy. Now the Koch bros. donated 25 million clams to one of their favortite causes, and they’re not happy. Well, I guess there’s just not pleasing some people.

Not because they're black but because they vote Democrat.

Weird ... from UPENN site:

Dr. Gasman’s areas of expertise include the history of American higher education, historically black colleges and universities, minority serving institutions, African American leadership, and fundraising and philanthropy.

She has written or edited 15 books, including Envisioning Black Colleges: A History of the United Negro College Fund, Supporting Alma Mater: Successful Strategies for Securing Funds from Black College Alumni (with Sibby Anderson-Thompkins), ...


She seems to be a historian of recent “history”, which means she helps write it. One book on UNCF, how convenient.

How come people can make a good living doing completely worthless shit? I just don’t get it anymore.

Must be comforting to leftist leadership. They point at someone and command their followers to “hate,” and they do it.

Liberals are stupider than a cowflop. I’m talking one of those steaming, wet, juicy cowflops that hit the ground with a wet splatting sound.

Why would I say such a horrible/TRUE thing?

They’re getting money from “the enemy” to spend on the college-level indroctination (oh, should that be “education”?) of a liberal-plantation minority group. They (the leftist cowflops) should be in heaven; the Koch bros. have less money and they (the leftist cowflops) have more.

Why do I have to ‘splain these things to them?

Because [you KNOW what I’m gonna type here]...

Jesse Jackson would rather force Koch Industries to hire unqualified African-Americans than to allow Koch Industries to fund the college education of African-Americans to make them qualified workers.
