THE LAST MSNBC WARRIOR CHICK!
RACHEL MADDOW CALLS OUT THE KOCH BROTHERS
For my money, there is not a newscaster on the air today - anywhere - who can match the intelligence, integrity and "tell it like it is" honesty of Rachel Maddow. Watch her response to the Koch Brothers:
The source of this story and video is from Liberal America.org.
This is how the conservative big money guys operate through a web of organizations - mainly not for profits and "issue organizations" - to push states to adopt legislation that conforms to their right wing views and objectives. With, of course, the cooperation of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) who has brought us "Stand Your Ground Laws," "Anti-Whistleblower Legislation," "Voter ID Laws," "Criminalization of Animal Rights Groups" and a whole host of anti-democratic, anti-American laws and just plain stupid laws.
The Koch Brothers, despite their "up from their bootstraps," "did it all by themselves," "never used a penny of government funds" popular mythology, are not self-made billionaire entrepreneurs. Like nearly all of our multi-billionaires, they didn't earn their billions, they inherited those billions from Daddy. (OK - it was only $300 million back in 1967 when Daddy Koch died but even accounting for inflation that would be over $2 billion today.)
And here's a cute screen shot from our favorite false news organization Fox News. So can you tell me how many Liberal News Outlets (if you can find one) have speculated that if a Republican is elected President in 2016 it would result in the deaths of Americans? No. Of course not. To claim that electing Democrats would kill you is irrational. And irrationality, nonsensibility, baselessness and craziness is the exclusive purview of the right wing.
Try to remember that last time a Liberal or a Liberal Group bombed something, shot and killed someone, or mounted a terrorist attack. You can't, can you? Now I'm sure that in the history of the United States you will certainly find examples of liberals doing the kinds of things the radical right wing terrorists are doing today. The Labor Movement comes to mind where over 4,000 men, women and children lost their lives in the latter 19th and early 20th Centuries and I'm sure that some of the deaths of strike breakers and the private cops hired by companies to quell the labor movements were committed by Liberals. On the other hand, one could argue that those deaths were committed in self-defense. But here's the latest tally from the Anti-Defamation League about right wing terrorists:
And it's us LIBERALS who are destroying America?
