Liberals hate the Koch brothers with a relentless passion. This hatred runs so deep that liberals even complain when the Koch brothers use their money for positive causes.
Cue the Wall Street Journal:
One $100 million gift, targeted to help build a new hospital facility, was later the focus of street protests. A $25 million donation funding scholarships for minority students prompted one Ivy League professor to urge the rejection of the “tainted” gift. And a $1 million grant to fund a business-school study provoked 50 prominent Catholic educators to decry the “stark contrast” between the giver’s ideology and the church’s traditional teachings.
I wonder whether liberals intend to react the same now that we know via the Washington Times that billionaire liberal George Soros spent a minimum of $33 million in 2014 to embolden “the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson”:
Soros-sponsored organizations helped mobilize protests in Ferguson, building grass-roots coalitions on the ground backed by a nationwide online and social media campaign.
Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.
The plethora of organizations involved not only shared Mr. Soros‘ funding, but they also fed off each other, using content and buzzwords developed by one organization on another’s website, referencing each other’s news columns and by creating a social media echo chamber of Facebook “likes” and Twitter hashtags that dominated the mainstream media and personal online newsfeeds.
So while the Koch brothers donate to hospitals and scholarships, the great liberal hero George Soros uses his money to stir up racial animosity over the justified shooting of a criminal deviant. Charming, aye?
Funding by George Soros also helped spawn the “Black Lives Matter” movement:
With the backing of national civil rights organizations and Mr. Soros‘ funding, “Black Lives Matter” grew from a hashtag into a social media phenomenon, including a #BlackLivesMatter bus tour and march in September.
If you recall, this happens to be the same protest movement that proudly chanted the following: “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”
So here’s my question: How long do you think it will take the same liberals who complain about the Koch brothers to speak up against George Soros? My guess is . . . a billion years!
