Koch Brothers: Heroes or Villains

I thought this was a fascinating video clip.
CNN Democrats Favorite Bogeymen

Personally, unless they are trying to rule us through generosity...  I vote heroes...

"heroes.....trying to rule us through generosity"

that is really funny.

Well it looks like their charitable giving of late far exceeds their political donations.

Of course maybe the Democrats will say the boys are giving away those hundreds of millions of dollars in order to make a profit...

I especially liked this quote...

"You remember David Koch. Earlier this year, activists marched in protest after the news emerged (gasp!) that he’d donated $100 million to build a state-of-the-art ambulatory care center for New York Presbyterian Hospital."

What a monster !!!!
How dare he !!!

How do you know this? I thought nobody knows how much they give to political organizations.

John said...

Good point.

However the sources I found say 10's of millions to politics, and 100's of millions to charity.

However they would make a good "DFL camp fire story"... Kind of like the insane killer with a hook for a hand.

Most of the Koch political donations go to 501(c)(4) organizations that are not required to reveal their donors.

I think folks on my side of the political aisle waste too much time and effort on the Koch brothers, just as those on the other side spend far too much time worrying about George Soros.
