Billionaire David Koch Dies; How Leftists Respond Is Absolutely Appalling

This is horrible.

Published

Billionaire libertarian David Koch has passed away at the age of 79, and as you might expect, the liberal media had a lot to say about the man, none of it really any good.

While we’re used to seeing the left trash folks on the right, especially when they die, the venom spit at Koch by liberals is appalling in every imaginable way. These people truly have no shame.

“David Koch was a villain who devoted his wealth to further enriching himself and his fellow plutocrats, while spinning us all toward environmental doom,” wrote Slate’s Jordan Weissmann. “I don’t believe in an afterlife, but if there is one, I hope his soul suffers for eternity.”

“David Koch is dead. Forget the fawning obituaries: the man spent his life funding campaigns to dismantle unions, drive down wages, slash benefits and destroy the planet. He was a monument to the grotesque greed of the billionaire class — and why we need to defeat them,” wrote Tribune Magazine’s Ronan Burtenshaw.

“I’m sure David Koch loved his grandkids or whatever, but the reality is that he and his greedy generation in Big Business and politics set the world on fire from Alaska to the Amazon, and now they won’t be around to watch the flames consume the rest of us,” tweeted Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Will Bunch.

“David Koch wanted to abolish public schools, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and rent control,” said CNN commentator Keith Boykin. “He financed groups that denied the research on climate change. He funded the Tea Party. And he used dark money to support right-wing causes and Republican candidates for office.

“Seeing lots of headlines about David Koch’s death referring to ‘billionaire’, ‘industrialist’ or ‘libertarian’ Koch,” wrote Mehdi Hasan, a columnist for The Intercept and Al Jazeera presenter (tweet below). “Haven’t seen any refer to him as ‘climate denier’ Koch. But that’ll be his long-term legacy: funding the effort to downplay an existential threat to all of us.”

Isn’t that totally despicable? And that’s only scratching the surface of the awful things people are saying on social media. It’s so sickening and disheartening to see just how much we’ve all lost our humanity due to political differences.

The mainstream media has done a most excellent job of dividing us, and what’s truly tragic is that it seems most people are totally fine with this kind of behavior.

We should be better than this.

Isn’t that one of those ‘Rice Krispies’ guys?

If a man as ridiculous as Joe Biden can ascend to vice president of the United States then anything is possible, kids. On Saturday, Biden told a story of the time he ran into a gang leader named “Corn Pop.” Check this out… This is BIZARRE! Here’s Joe Biden telling the story of his face-off with a gang of razor-wielding ne’er-do-wells led by a guy named ‘Corn Pop.’ https://twitter.com/EddieZipperer/status/1173196985085677569?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173196985085677569&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F From Washington Examiner: Biden said he prepared himself by wrapping a metal chain around his arm. Corn Pop was waiting by Biden’s car “with three guys and straight razors. Not a joke.” “And I looked at him, but I was smart then, I said first of all, I said when I tell you to get off the board you get off the board, and I’ll kick you out again, but I shouldn’t have called you Esther Williams, I apologize for that,” Biden said, revealing Corn Pop was stunned by the apology and decided to not attack him. Reactions: This is the weirdest story I’ve ever heard a politician tell. Not to mention it’s completely made up. Also, those kids look bored to death and ready to take a nap. https://twitter.com/MarkRipollone/status/1173200868646313984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173200868646313984&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F The Biden campaign is now considering hiring someone to pretend to be Corn Pop, the notorious gangsta Biden confronted. https://twitter.com/danieltobin/status/1173226658364571649?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173226658364571649&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F https://twitter.com/EddieZipperer/status/1173197420915769344?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173197420915769344&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F Good news!

Omar Just Compared Migrant Detention Centers to ‘Slave Camps In Africa During the Slave Trade’

And she’ll get away with it…

Ilhan Omar probably thinks Ilhan Omar might just be the kindest, most intelligent member of Congress. She’d be wrong. Not only is Omar a radical anti-Semite who has shown that she doesn’t love America nor Israel, but she’s also kind of a [redacted]. Check this out… WATCH: Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar compares migrant detention centers to slave camps in Africa during the slave trade. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1173023974235746304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173023974235746304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F432519-ilhan-omar-compares-illegal-alien-detention-centers-to-slave-camps-during-slave-trade%2F Omar will continue to say silly things so long as liberals control the mainstream media. And that doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon. From RealClear Politics: Rep. Ilhan Omar addressed controversial comments about slavery, U.S. border patrol, and 9/11, and decried the “implied intent” that critics impose on her statements. “I’m only controversial because people seem to want the controversy,” Omar said. She also responded to Nicholas Haros, the son of a 9/11 victim who spoke out against Omar at the 18th-anniversary event in New York while wearing a “some people did something” T-shirt. “9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel,” Omar said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVrrM2wenhk
