The Koch Brothers Are Evil!
That’s what the Left is telling us, anyway. There isn’t an hour that goes by where some resident of Moonbatville fails to mention the evil Koch brothers and their conspiracy to promote those crazy free enterprise and limited government ideals. They even have the audacity to give money to the ultra-right-wing haters at The Cato Institute and the ACLU. Pure evil, I tell you.
I remember hearing the account of how the Koch brothers amassed a $10 Billion position in the British pound and then sold it short causing “Black Wednesday.” The evil brothers made $1.1 Billion and set England on a course towards a recession which hurt millions of people as businesses failed and the housing market collapsed. They essentially bankrupted an entire country to make a profit. That’s pure evil.
The Kochs broke the Bank of England via their enormous, largely unregulated, derivative based hedge funds which aren’t even headquartered in the US!! Lord knows how many taxes those evil rich guys have avoided over the decades of their funds’ existence. The Leftists are always telling us how shady it is to offshore an operation’s headquarters and the Koch brothers are a prime example. Crashing economies and undermining currencies. Making billions of dollars. And then they have the audacity to not even use that money to create jobs in the US?? PURE. EVIL.
Don’t even get me started on how the Kochs pushed for capping US exploration and harvesting of domestic resources for years. Meanwhile, they took massive positions in the oil industry in Brazil and elsewhere (through their shady hedge funds – natch) which would stand to gain from the US being unable to exploit its own resources. The Kochs don’t care about all the people who could be working here in the US in that industry which we pioneered. They want to spread the wealth around to other countries so they can make money on those emerging markets. They also don’t care at all that making the US more dependent on foreign sources of oil also gives enormous power to countries who are hostile to the US. It’s all in a days work for the evil Koch brothers. How do they sleep at night?
They’ve been convicted of insider trading. They fund organizations dedicated to silencing opposing view points (literally, they don’t just disagree, they want them shut down). They operate a network of organizations which fund, directly or indirectly, nearly every radical movement in the US and abroad. They have declared themselves the “world’s conscience” as if their history of pure evil doesn’t exist. No wonder the Left hates them so much.
Wait. Did I say “Koch brothers”? Sorry. I meant George Soros. My bad.
