The Democrats and Senator Reid area Koch Whores

Senator Harry Reid is indulging an absurd habit these days. He’s become a Koch head, a Koch addict, a Koch whore. He just can’t get enough of libertarian campaign donors Charles and David Koch and Reid’s lost his tiny little mind over them blaming them for everything that he thinks is wrong with the country. Naturally, Reid is a liar.

Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries have donated hundreds of millions to center right candidates and causes over the last 30 years, something, Reid says, means they are “buying” politics in the country.

Before we even talk further about the Koch brothers, we should note that left-winger George Soros has spent far, far more of his personal fortune to push American politics leftward than the Kochs have spent pushing it rightward. And where is Reid to complain that extremist, left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is spending hundreds of millions of his money to push the myth of global warming down our throats? Where is Reid to complain of the billions that MoveOn.org has s\pent on politics? Worse, where is Reid to whine that unions are buying politics–and unions have spent trillions more over the last 50 years than either Soros OR the Kochs. Of course, the lying hypocrite Senator from Nevada doesn’t care about Soros, the unions, or your Steyers because they all spend their billions on Democrats and their Euroesque causes.

As I wrote at Breitbart in January:

On the other side of the aisle, Democrat-supporting George Soros donated at least $2.5 million to support Barack Obama’s reelection in 2012, and back in 2004, he spent a reported $23 million in an effort to defeat George W. Bush.

Additionally, the Latino Victory Project, a Soros-backed group that pumped $30 million into Obama’s reelection campaign, is now lining up tens of millions to defeat ten House Republicans who oppose amnesty for illegal aliens.

I almost feel that we should capitalize the “brothers” in Koch brothers since the two words have become a proper name the left has attacked them so much.

Reid has bellowed that the Kochs are “un-American” (again, despite that his finders are doing the exact same thing), absurdly claimed they were “delaying Ukraine aid,” claimed that they are “actually trying to buy the country,” and any manner of other calumnies for which he has no proof.

Of course, Reid has never ever cared about facts, proof, veracity, truth or anything of that proper moral nature. Reid only cares about throwing out a lie long enough that it becomes accepted “truth” among his voters. Remember when Reid said some guy told him that Mitt Romney never paid any taxes? Yeah, that was a lie, too.

Even left-wingers at MSVNBC have criticized Reid for his constant lies about the Kochs.

Anyway, Reid isn’t the only Democrat fool prattling about how evil the Kochs are for legally spending their money on political causes. A new ad created to fool voters in Louisiana into voting for Senator Mary Landreiu again also indulged some lie-filled Koch-a-gogeury.

In the ad the Senate Majority PAC claimed that the Kochs support “tax cuts for companies that ship our jobs overseas.”

But even the Washington Post claims that this is a lie.

Upon examination, this claim crumbles into dust. The ad not only mischaracterizes an ordinary tax deduction as a special “tax cut” but then it falsely asserts that “protecting” this tax break is part of the Koch agenda. It turns out this claim is based on a tenuous link to an organization that never even took a position on the legislation in question.

The Democrats don’t care what the truth is, though. They have a narrative that they want to shove down everyone’s throat built of fear and held together with lies all meant to force ill-informed voters to continue to throw away their votes on Democrats.

    Sharron Angle would think this entire topic looks Asian, but that’s neither here nor there. As for Reid, well, he sure knows his audience. By defintion if you’re a Democrat supporter you’re either mentally ill, too young to have a clue, or largely if not entirely dependent upon the government, or you’ve been brainwashed along racial or other lines of traits. Those particular groups eat up the whole “GOP’ers are the evil rich” meme. It resonates with them. It works. See Obama, B.H., POTUS. Reid is a complete scumbag, granted, but from the standpoint of pure power politics you have understand and respect the guy. He’s greasing the necessary skids. Keep that all in mind when you decide for whom to vote and for whom not to vote.

      Gone? He has been senile for years, even when he was the Nevada Gaming Commissioner. He had an agenda to break the small gaming casinos in Nevada, so his union and Mafia buddies that ran the mega bucks ones in Lost Wages and Reno could cash in on the Joe Sixpack tourist dollars.

      Chico / dumbass

      Funny I see at least 15 unions above the Koch brothers all of whom support the dems. Your analogy is flawed as usual.

      Speaking of flawed. Your answers to the following were flawed.

      1 Oprah,the Lamestream media, Reid, Pelosi, and other major dems have called people racist simply because they oppose Obama’s
      policies. Yet when they oppose those same policies when espoused by Bill, Hillary. Reid, Pelos, Gore, Kerry, etc etc they weren’t considered racist then by Oprah, etc etc (I don’t know isn’t good enough)
      Do you feel that it is because the left is just playing the race card?

      2. People were called racist anarchist terrorists when they tried to delay Obamacare yet Al Franken who did the same thing wasn’t called Racist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the call just playing the race card because that is all they have?

      3. People were called racist anarchist terrorist when they called for the delay of all or part of Obamacare and Obama who is unconstitutionally doing the same thing is not called a racist anarchist terrorist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the calling are just playing the race card because that is all they have?

      4. Chico stated ” They (duck dynasty guys) were clean shaven before they pitched the TV show.” yet you provided zero proof of this statement. Please do so now.

      Examples of statements 1, 2, and 3 (since you reject the premise)

      Salon writer Joan Wals
      It’s simply stunning: Longtime Republican imagemaker Ailes figured out how to make sure that our twice-elected Democratic president, backed by a coalition that represents an emerging, multiracial America, must periodically be checked and hopefully shamed by a representative of the angry right-wing white male minority that barely considers him a legitimate leader…

      O’Reilly and Ailes and their viewers see this president as unqualified and ungrateful, an affirmative action baby who won’t thank us for all we’ve done for him and his cohort. The question was, of course, deeply condescending and borderline racist. Obama has been afforded “so much opportunity”? What about O’Reilly, who pretends he’s a working-class son of Levittown, Long Island, when he’s actually the kid of an accountant who grew up in Westbury and went to private high school and university

      Wall Street Journal’s Steve Moore: “This is still a pretty conservative country and people are upset about the policies in Washington and they don’t think the politicians are listening.”

      Talking about the town hall protests against ObamaCare on MSNBC’s Hardball, August 11, 2009.

      If racism is not the whole of the Tea Party, it is in its heart, along with blind hatred, a total disinterest in the welfare of others, and a full-flowered, self-rationalizing refusal to accept the outcomes of elections, or the reality of democracy, or the narrowness of their minds and the equal narrowness of their public support.”
      — MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Countdown, March 22, 2010.

      “The Republican Party in this country has been running on hate and division for the last 50 years….What black person, gay guy or girl, immigrant or Muslim American in their right mind would vote for the Republican Party? They might as well hang a sign around their neck saying, ‘I hate myself.’”

      “The interesting question is: what is it about this President that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the office of the President? Why do Republicans think this President is unpresidential — unpresidential, and shouldn’t dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008, or it could be, let’s face it, the color of his skin.”

      “Plus, what Mitt Romney has in common with the KKK. Details on a rare Romney campaign blunder ahead….So you might not hear Mitt Romney say ‘keep America American’ anymore. That’s because it was a central theme of the KKK in the 1920s. It was a rallying cry for the group’s campaign of violence and intimidation against blacks, gays and Jews.”
      — Anchor Thomas Roberts on MSNBC Live, December 14, 2011.

      Host Chris Matthews: “How does this guy [Mitt Romney] go from hard right, severely conservative, to this new regular mainstream character he’s portraying himself as?…He ran as a full mooner, Michael. You know, he was saying ‘There’s no such thing as science.’… How can he go from Flat Earth, ‘I don’t believe in evolution,’ to all of a sudden, ‘I’m teaching biology’?… It certainly was in the Grand Wizard crowd over there, okay?”
      Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele: “Wait, I resent that! No. Come on, what is this ‘Grand Wizard’ nonsense? Are you saying that we’re Ku Klux Klan?”
      Matthews: “Okay, I’m just saying, the far-right party.”
      Steele: “Give me a break! Don’t go there with me on that.”
      — MSNBC’s Hardball, April 23, 2012.

      You notice he [Romney] says ‘anger’ twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama. The other-ization, he’s not like us. I know it’s a heavy thing to say. I don’t say it lightly. But this is niggerization, ‘You are not one of us,’ and that ‘you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.’”

      Host Martin Bashir: “Of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration, can I quote something [to] you? ‘For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems. He hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He’s been working to earn a spot on the PGA tour.’ How about that?”
      MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell: “Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there….These people reach for every single possible racial double-entendre they can possibly find in every one of these speeches.”
      — MSNBC’s Martin Bashir, August 29, 2012, talking about McConnell’s speech at the Republican National Convention.

      They hate Obama. They want him out of the White House more than they want to destroy al Qaeda. Their number one enemy in the world right now, on the right, is their hatred — hatred for Obama. We can go into that about the white working class in the South, and looking at these numbers we’re getting in the last couple days about racial hatred in many cases. This isn’t about being a better president. They want to get rid of this president. That’s their number one goal and they’re willing to let Romney go to the hard center, even if it’s to the left on issues, as long as they get rid of this guy.”
      — Chris Matthews during MSNBC’s post-debate coverage, October 22, 2012

      “I look at Obama as a perfect American. I don’t mean politically. We can disagree left and right on him. You can argue about the drones. Argue about the fiscal policy, all that stuff. But as a citizen. The guy went to school, he never broke a law. He did everything right. He raised a wonderful family. He’s a good husband, a good father. My God I don’t think he’s ever gotten a speeding ticket. The guy does everything right and these right-wingers — and he’s really been pretty moderate on guns until the horror of Newtown — and I don’t know what they’re so afraid of, except that he happens to be black.”
      — Host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, March 6, 2013

      What does your study tell you about the nature of the racial piece here of the Tea Party?…Is it sort of a resumption of the Old South, of the way things were before the Civil War, for example? Is it like that old dreamy nostalgia you get in the old movies, Gone With the Wind? Is it that kind of America they want to bring back or what? When there were no gays, where blacks were slaves, Mexicans were in Mexico? I mean, is this what they want?”
      — Chris Matthews to author Christopher Parker on MSNBC’s Hardball, March 20, 2013

      The problem is there are people in this country — maybe 10 percent, I don’t know what the number, maybe 20 percent on a bad day — who want this President to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books, that he really wasn’t President….They can’t stand the idea that he is President, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group. So what? It is the sense that the white race must rule. That’s what racism is. And they can’t stand the idea that a man who is not white is President.”
      — Chris Matthews appearing as a guest on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation, May 15, 2013

      “The IRS is being used in exactly the same way as they tried to use the President’s birth certificate…Despite the complete lack of any evidence linking the President to the targeting of Tea Party groups, Republicans are using it as their latest weapon in the war against the black man in the White House….This afternoon, we welcome the latest phrase in the lexicon of Republican attacks on this President — the IRS. Three letters that sound so innocent, but we know what you mean.”

      ¦ “At least back in 1939, when Marian Anderson had to sing here, ‘My Country ‘Tis of Thee’ rather than at the Constitution Hall, because — they said the reason was she was black. At least they were honest back then….[Today] you’ve got people talking about nullification of the law of the land [ObamaCare]. You got people talking impeachment like [Senator Tom] Coburn. You got Ted Cruz out there. They never say their problem with Obama is that he’s black, but look at the pattern….At least the Daughters of the American Revolution knew what they were saying and they said it out loud: ‘He’s black, she’s black, she can’t sing here.’ These guys today use all the techniques of nullification and talking about illegitimacy and accusing the President of being a crook, basically, for even being president, because he’s here illegally. And then they talk about impeaching him on grounds they can’t even come up with. At least in the old days they were honest about it. Today, they’re not.”
      — Chris Matthews during MSNBC live coverage of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, August 28, 2013.

      ¦ “I want to talk today about a controversial word….A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments…. Y’all know the word that I’m talking about: ‘ObamaCare.’”

      Host Ed Schultz compared Tea Party activists to Nazi brownshirts and said that the Republican Party stands for racism; and accused Texas Gov. Rick Perry of referring to Obama in racial terms when he described the national debt as a “big black cloud” hanging over the heads of the American people.

      Reporter Lawrence O’Donnell accused Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell of using a “racial double-entendre” when McConnell complained that Obama spends too much time golfing;

      Daytime anchor Thomas Roberts famously claimed that Republicans want to go back to a time when “slavery was cool;”

      Contributing analyst Toure – so self-important that he goes by only one name – accused Romney of participating in the “niggerization” of Obama;

      PRESS: I just think the whole thing is outrageous. I hate this apology, I think it was unnecessary and just, just played right into their hands. And, I mean, they won’t (laughs), they’re not going to let conservatives watch MSNBC, fine! You’re not even going to notice that. How many conservatives, seriously, are watching Ed Schultz or Rachel Maddow, you know, or Al Sharpton every night?

      JEREMY HOLDEN OF MEDIA MATTERS: Yeah, yeah, I don’t know, but, uh, I’m just …

      PRESS: It’s silly.

      HOLDEN: I want to see how this probation looks and when it ends. (Alluding to RNC chair Reince Priebus’s response to Cheerios ad tweet). And what, you know, is there going to be a soft landing from the probation? This is kind of silly at this point.

      PRESS: It is and, you know, first of all, good for Cheerios for bringing that spot back and not bowing into the pressure and as far as this tweet goes, again, “maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everybody else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” that’s the truth. That is the truth! The right winger, the racist right winger will hate it. Everybody else will like it. It’s a beautiful spot.

And he talks about the UAW has, or the idea of organized labor and finds, y’know, great welcome in NYU and in bastions of sort of liberal, progressive thought. But then when it comes down to it, here you have workers on an assembly line in Chattanooga, Tennessee, who have turned down the option. And he makes a point that, “As many unions have discovered, generally to their woe, the politics of race and culture often eclipse those of class in the United States.” [1]

      NOAH: Right.

      WAGNER: And these sort of cultural means around unions, um, distracted from the actual economic benefits of them. [2]

      NOAH: The South has always been hostile territory for union organizing. Y’know, as Harold said, the culture war in the South trumps the class war. [1] You already have in a number of Southern states right to work laws, which means that even if they had unionized the plants, those who benefitted from the presence of that union wouldn’t have had to pay union dues if they didn’t feel like it.

      So you’re in an overwhelmingly hostile climate. And the opposition I gather, through, portrayed this as a kind of northern invasion, a refighting of the Civil War. [3] Apparently there are not a lot of, uh, black employees in this particular plant. [4] And so, that kind of, uh, uh, uh, waving of the Confederate flag was an effective strategy. [5]

    Surely big money is a very corrupting influence in our political system. But it is equally clear that neither the Democratic nor Republican party has a solution. It is also equally clear that neither has the desire to find a solution.
