The Kochtopus Moves Left


Donors to Donald Trump’s election campaign now have to worry about being doxxed and harassed by crazed totalitarian Democrats [Shaming Trump donors by revealing they donated to Trump? What’s wrong with that?, by Michael Hiltzik, Los Angeles Times, August 8, 2019]. But one well-known set of Republican donors don’t have to worry about this thuggery: the Koch brothers. They were once thought to be the puppet masters of the Right, derided by paleolibertarian gadfly Murray Rothbard as “the Kochtopus”—until Trump became the Republican nominee on a platform completely antithetical to theirs. Now the Kochtopus is moving decisively left.

One brother, David Koch, has retired. The other, Charles Koch, is as active as ever and continues to pour money into increasingly insidious causes. [One Koch Brother Forces the Other Out of the Family Business, by Jane Meyer, The New Yorker, June 7, 2018]. Koch groups are promoting immigration increases and efforts to block immigration enforcement. Koch world is instrumental in pushing criminal justice reform that aims to unleash a new crime wave. The Koch donor network has indicated it may back Democrats in 2020. And, most unprincipled of all in an alleged “libertarian,” Charles Koch has teamed up with George Soros and the Anti-Defamation League to censor “extremist” .a.k.a. anti-Leftist online content.

Of course, the Kochs have long backed mass immigration and Amnesty for illegal aliens. In 2013, they backed the Gang of Eight Amnesty and sponsored a Buzzfeed event to push it. [Koch Sponsors Pro-Amnesty BuzzFeed Event, by Lee Stranahan, Breitbart, May 10, 2013]. Trump demolished that agenda in the 2016 Republican primary, but his victory apparently taught the Kochs nothing. Amnesty for so-called DREAMers, illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors, remains a major legislative priority: “These are people who have already demonstrated their commitment and contribution to this country—and in 2019 our country can do the same for them,” read a January Koch network email [Koch Network to Push for Legal Status for Dreamers in 2019, by Philip Elliott, Time, January 2, 2019] .

  1. Proving that being rich doesn’t guarantee intelligence.
    As for Michael Hiltzik, Los Angeles Times…doxx the hell out of him and protest in front of his house.

  2. Someone should do that to AOC.

    Dox her donors.

    I’ll bet the list of donors and where they lived would be surprising to everyone except the Left, and they would be very, very unhappy about being exposed.

  3. “Now the Kochtopus is moving decisively left.”
    They were already totalitarian leftists – that’s democrat deception for you.

  4. The Kock Bros. gave us the Bush family, McCain and Romney. Now everyone except the RINOs call the Koch’s Enemies of the State, and rightfully so.

  5. They’re not “moving left” – they’re allowing their anti-Americanism to display.
    Unlike the industrialists of Russia (pre 1917) and more similarly to the industrialists of Germany (1930s) they’re assuming the proportions of the socialist takeover will allow them to keep their empire – merely limiting or circumscribing their ability to profit. They perceive that the American character is somewhat contrary to that of the Russian, in which the peasants murdered by the hundreds of thousands, and more aligned to that of the Germans, who directed their wrath in a racial direction, in spite of, rather than as a consequence of wealth.

    They would support Hitler, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Schumer, Sanders, Biden – whoever would promise them security – though the promise be as empty as Sandy O’Cortez’s head. Is macht nichts.

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. It’s the left/democrats who are the white supremecists. Total transference, as usual, that they call other people that.
