The witch-hunt that has been undertaken recently is ridiculous. The crusade, led by Senate majority leader Harry Reid, is not only hypocritical but flat-out stupid. The crusade is against the supposed takeover of America by billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch. Not only has the theory of an attempted coup been proven false, but it also does not make any sense whatsoever. In fact, their libertarian philosophy is completely contradictory with the theory of some kind of takeover.
While Senator Reid would like to focus on Charles and David Koch’s political contributions he conveniently forgets to mention their charitable donations. He also neglects to mention their $20 million donation to the American Civil Liberties Union to aid in their fight against the tyrannical Patriot Act. But I guess it must have slipped his mind.
Now recently, on the Senate floor, Harry Reid has claimed that the Democrats don’t have any billionaire supporters.
The hypocrisy of his claim is laughable. Senator Reid was asked about Nevada billionaire casino tycoon Sheldon Adleson’s political contributions, but Senator Reid found no objections. I guess when you benefit from someone; you have a hard time criticizing them for the SAME EXACT THING!
Senator Reid would not dare bring up liberal sugar daddy George Soros. I’m not one of those conspiracy theorists so let’s deal in proven fact when it comes to Mr. Soros. Not only does Soros donate millions to fund Democrats’ campaigns, he’s no boy scout either. The Koch brothers have been criticized for improper waste disposal. Mr. Soros nearly collapsed England’s economy (Google: Black Wednesday 1992). But we’ve established the Senator Reid has a faulty memory.
What strikes me as most ridiculous about Senator Reid’s takeover conspiracy is that their donations have, at times, been unsuccessful. I’ll prove it right now. We will never be able to debate the policies of President Mitt Romney’s administration.
But let’s ask one final question. What about what politicians may do with their campaign contributions? Shouldn’t that come into question? Senator Reid your crusade is that much more asinine when we take into account that you illegally funneled $17,000 in campaign funds into your granddaughter’s account for “holiday gifts.”
I guess like everything else, it must have slipped your mind.
