Koch Brothers vs Unions- these are the right wing lies we are dealing with


So those on the right are passing around this graphic as fact:

 

 

Just a few major problems. First- the Koch brothers have only become a major force since the “Citizens United” decision.

Second-and more importantly the chart shows donations by Koch industries- and their employees. NOT the donations of the Koch Brothers themselves.

The Koch Brothers, who have spent more then the $12 million shown in the Scott Walker recall election in Wisconsin alone.

They are currently estimated to be spending over $400 in this election to defeat Obama and place republicans in congress.

Again, we see the right creating their narrative- with lies and “facts” that are anything but. And counting on their followers to be too stupid, or too indifferent to bother checking the actual facts.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    Reblogged this on The Last Of The Millenniums and commented:
    Well the Republicans aren’t going to let fact checkers determine their ads either!

  2. are you a paid troll by the Koch Brothers or just a stupid, ignorant, piece of lying trash

    • Ummm- did you actually read the post? And more imprtantly understand? Because this post in no way supportive of the Koch brothers- quite the opposite.

      But of course- this seems illustrative of the problem in politics today- too many people on both sides not paying attention, not listening, so entrenched in their ideas, and unwilling/unable to hold any real conversation. Nope- just call names at any real or perceived dissent from their worldview…
