David and Charles Koch are the hell spawn conceived from a threesome among Satan, the Anti-Christ, and the Beast. They feast upon aborted fetuses and drink the tears of Holocaust survivors. They have no hearts, and where their hearts should be, there exists only a black hole which attracts all the suffering and misery in the world. They do not feel. They do not love. Their only desire is to take over America—followed by the entire world, and they are willing to stoop to any low to accomplish this goal, even if it means breaking into your house late at night to rape your grandmother with a condom made from a freshly-slaughtered infant. These megalomaniacs make Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader look like Boy Scouts in comparison.
Of course, this image of the Koch Brothers exists solely in the minds of paranoid far-left bloggers. In reality, the Koch Brothers are billionaire entrepreneurs who—when not funding the fine arts and medical research—donate to political causes, just like their left-wing counterpart George Soros. They are self-proclaimed libertarians who hate George Bush, support stem cell research and gay marriage, and oppose the Iraq War, Patriot Act, and (ironically enough) crony capitalism; but because they also oppose over-taxation and regulation, they are maligned by the far-left as Hitler and Mussolini reincarnate. Just mentioning their name will cause any libtarded moonbat to scream in fear, piss and crap their pants, and collapse from a near-fatal heart attack.
But how big of a threat are the Koch Brothers? Over the past twenty years, Koch Industries has donated $9,831,715 in political contributions (mostly to Republicans, of course), and while that seems like a large sum, it only ranks them as #85 on the list of top all-time political donors
So who outspends the Kochs? Of the top ten donors (all of which—including ActBlue at #1—contribute heavily to Democrats), six are labor unions including the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees ($45,820,853, #2), the Service Employees International Union ($37,151,289, #5), the National Education Association ($36,433,925, #6), the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers ($33,824,355, #8), the Laborers Union ($31,640,067, #9), and the American Federation of Teachers ($31,342,403, #10).
Other unions that outspend the Kochs include the following:#11:
Teamsters Union ($30,858,309)#12:
Carpenters & Joiners Union ($30,629,437)#13:
Communications Workers of America ($29,952,424)#15:
United Auto Workers ($27,344,832)#16:
United Food & Commercial Workers Union ($27,094,834)#18:
Machinists & Aerospace Workers Union ($26,747,874)#19:
National Association of Letter Carriers ($22,188,393)#26:
Sheet Metal Workers Union ($18,955,848)#29:
International Association of Fire Fighters ($18,533,507)#31:
Plumbers & Pipefitters Union ($18,128,935)#36:
Operating Engineers Union ($17,133,140)#44:
United Transportation Union ($14,794,360)#47:
United Steelworkers ($14,632,651)#48:
Ironworkers Union ($14,459,298)#52:
American Postal Workers Union ($13,669,853)#56:
National Active & Retired Federal Employees Association ($11,351,500)
Combining the figures above, these labor unions donate over $500 million dollars to political contributions, making the Koch’s contribution of roughly $10 million look like chump change! If the Koch Brothers are trying to take over America, they’re clearly losing to the unions.
And before the far-left Koch-haters start whining, these statistics were obtained, not from a right-wing Koch-funded think tank, but from Open Secrets
, a website run by the Center for Responsive Politics, a non-profit, non-partisan research group—one of its major donors being the Open Society Institute. That’s right: one of George Soros’ foundations is funding an organization which runs a website that contains a list of figures that indirectly defend his right-wing arch-rivals! How’s that for bitter irony?
