Kochs Add Life

Do monsters get any meaner than Godzilla and King Kong? You bet! Charles and David Koch are ginormous and superbad. Just ask Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid.

“When you make billions of dollars a year, you can be as immoral and dishonest as your money will allow you to be,” the Nevadan said February 26 on the Senate floor. “These two brothers,” Reid added, “are about as un-American as anyone that I can imagine.”

San Francisco billionaire and Democratic campaign contributor Tom Steyer told Men’s Journal that David Koch is “just a famously evil person!”

Dang. Time for another "dink". Glad hairy reid-iculous is keeping tabs on these evil doers. Almost to the point of obsession. Talk about fixated. A sure sign of a delusional person. Straight out of sauls book.

Remember when the left used to go ballistic when they were called “un-American” for supporting communist regimes? Now they call us “un-American” for opposing communism here.

“When you make billions of dollars a year, you can be as immoral and dishonest as your money will allow you to be,” “These two brothers,” Reid added, “are about as un-American as anyone that I can imagine.”

From the March 11, 2014 New York Post:

Those Evil Koch Brothers

This awful businessman has given $100 million to help New York-Presbyterian Hospital build a state-of-the-art ambulatory care center.

Most New Yorkers likely regard such a donation as a tremendous act of charity. Not the New York State Nurses Association, SEIU Local 1199, the New York State NAACP or the Working Families Party. On Saturday, they protested outside both the hospital and David Koch’s apartment. This is not David Koch’s first provocation. Since 2000, he has given away more than $629 million to more than three dozen New York City institutions ranging from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the American Ballet Theater to Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Columbia University. In short, many New Yorkers have had their lives enriched by David Koch’s munificence, and some may even have had their lives saved.

Harry Reid can get away with this sleaze because he is a Democrat and the press will give him a pass. If a Republican made similar comments about a Democratic donor the press would be all over him.

LOL! Weird that they fall so far down the list behind uber-rich guilt ridden people like tom stier(sp) and unions. But, according to hairy reid-iculous, the are the #1 threat to life and the American way.

This is part of the Dems effort to demonize the Koch Brothers, again! Isn’t this boring?

GOP better wise up and start ads about how Dems like attack private citizens... We are all private citizens.

This was someone else’s idea but I think it’s one of many we could start with. I don’t feel the need to defend the Koch brothers. They have enough money to deal with it and they should before they are defined by the Liberals (again) as evil!

No, the un-American person here is Harry Reid. Written into the Constitution of the United States is the prohibition on bills of attainder, an act that recognizes the evil of legislation aimed at a single person. The Founding Fathers understood that agents of the government should not be targeting individuals (especially because of politics), as this was the complete opposite of liberty. No surprise, then, that Dingy Harry would be doing exactly that...

While that liar Reid is out there moaning about the Koch Brothers maybe someone should look at how a man who has spent his life living off the American people has become millionaire.

Be VERY careful of adhering to the adage, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. Sure the Kochs are propping up GOP candidates. But if you think they sand for American values, our values ... think again. IF (a big if) they get rid of the Dims, you can rest assured we are next. I am befuddled by some of the cheer-leading for them that I see.

Yep.

The myriads of Dem big contributors are true believers in liberalism, whereas the small number of Republican big contributor just disagree a bit about the tactics needed to impose socialism on little people.

The regime has named the Koch brothers as it's Emmanuel Goldsteins. Very scary, but they did it before the 2012 elections with it's "shady" Republican donors list.

That being said I do not agree at all with the progressive direction that the Kochs are pulling the Republican Party.

I had many reasons to detest Harry Reid already. Now with him railing against the Koch brothers, I guess we can add anti-Semitism to his list of failings.

Not the first time I’ve read your comments that suggest something rather sinister regarding the Koch brothers.

It would be quite helpful if you provided some direct evidence to support this idea you keep spreading on every thread.

Looking forward to reading your research.

I’d not heard of the sinister Koch Bros ties before, either. Another FReeper (I’ve pinged) mentioned that the Koch Bros are “investing heavily” in amnesty RINO’s. I asked for links to that, and he provided these, FWIW...

“Why would the Left go after pro-amnesty, pro-sodomy supporters like the Koch Brothers?”
*********************************************************************

Well, I certainly see why the Left would be attacking the Koch Brothers (who are VERY major donors to conservative causes) but why would you and “RIghtwardHo” join the Left’s anti-Koch jihad?

We need to be careful not only about our clear enemies, but we also need to beware of those among us devoted to sowing discord in the conservative ranks. There are posters on FreeRepublic who frequently make posts whose intents seem to be to spread FUD (Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt) among conservatives.

Do you understand that what you are saying makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE?

Is Ted Cruz “the left’s feeble attempt to come up with our version of” Senator Chuck Schumer? That very strange assertion would roughly equal your assertion in bizarreness (and unreality).

After doing some research, all I can locate are claims that the Koch brothers are in bed with Grover Norquist, however, those reports are all under lefty sites.

I would appreciate some facts to back up the claim of the Koch brothers being for amnesty. I just haven’t been able to find the evidence.

It appears to be alot of hearsay, with no clear evidence.

For me, IF the Koch brothers are in anyway connected to that pig Grover, I will spread that news far and wide!!

The Dems are desperate. They’re in meltdown. Everything they’ve spent is spent and it isn’t doing what it’s supposed to do. Dem City after Dem City is facing bankruptcy. Ditto the counties and states they control.

It’s all they’ve got. We’re winning. It will take time. We need to stay on target.
