I recently saw that the "evil" koch brothers will be endorsing some democrats in 2020. Why? Well they love that sweet, sweet slave labor and trump's republicans are trying to get rid of their slaves. So my question is, will this wake you guys up? You have vilified the koch's for decades. Yet, now they're joining your ranks.

I'll tell you this, if soros decides to back republicans I'll take a long hard look at what I'm supporting. That man is nothing but evil incarnate. If he's supporting your cause you better make darn sure your cause is what you think it is.

So now the power base of the "resistance" is made up of:
Hollywood
Most news media
Most of the former intel community
The koch's
Soros
Abortion inc
Google
Facebook
Apple
Amazon
Netflix
Environmentalist groups
You could even add (in an abstract manner) the UN

That's not a resistance. That's the mainstream of nearly everything we see and do in the US. You are the establishment. The one power center you don't have is the presidency and you can't stand not having one single lever. It's disturbing really. The idea that you can have that much backing and still claim to be some sort of "resistance" is just so backwards.

Yes, you are the establishment and true to form your ranks are filled with people pursuing downright evil agendas.
- Hollywood, home of sexual deviants, degeneracy, and a hot bed of #metoo perps pretending to champion the cause.
News media, home of propaganda to erode our rights and normalize evil
- Former intel community, the front lines for blackmail and spying
- Koch's, Gimme that slave labor boi!
- Soros, Chaos to help overthrow the US system of government
- Abortion inc, moloch demands your babies, let me kill them
- Google, We abandoned our motto of "don't be evil" and now we push socialism and silence anyone who disagrees too loudly.
- Facebook, We were always evil. We were an DoD project called life log.
- Apple, Nevermind our slave labor practices, buy our $30 block of aluminum for $1,000 please.
- Netflix, We are still trying to ensure our dominance before we too lock down all dissenting thought or media
- Environmentalist groups, we are proudly eco terrorists.
- The UN, paving the way for our one world government overlords.

Is that really the group of people you want to stand with? One thing is for certain, that's not the resistance. Those are the tyrants.

You make a lot of sense, but this is something the insane left will never agree with as it goes against their confirmation bias.

Hollyweird, makes their distractions
Most news media, provides an echo chamber for their confirmation bias
The Intel community requires the support propaganda
The Koch's supply money, By Any Means Necessary, crazies don't want to work
Soros supply money, By Any Means Necessary, crazies don't want to work
Abortion Inc, don't you know abortion is contraception to these fools
Google, more confirmation bias support
Facebook, more confirmation bias support plus propaganda feeding to the intel community
Apple, more confirmation bias support, aren't we trendy and wee like to be tracked
Amazon, more confirmation bias support through productization
Netflix, makes their distractions like Hollyweird
Environmentalist groups, people are bad, white people are worse, white hetrosexuals are even worse
The UN, crap to tie it all together when you don't want freedom and personal responsibility

Cheers - Dave

I was wondering if anybody else noticed this, it amazes me how many people are actually gullible enough to abandon their previous conceptions against the establishment, throw their arms wide and embrace the propaganda machine.

That's exactly what it is. That's also the reason they pretend Trump is "literally Hitler" because then they feel heroic for standing up to him. Just like the media tries to make everything Nixonesque so they can feel like they're saving Democracy. It's all egocentric delusions of grandeur.

Yes, these people are the establishment. The left has gone from fighting against The Man to wanting to be The Man, and in many cases they are. They are all about controlling what people think, say and do. That's authoritarianism. These people aren't real liberals anymore.

Well.. You arent wrong!

But no, the people who have issues with such things will be excommunicated.

By joining "the resistance," the Kochs are now redeemed and holy. Without flaw.. washed in the staticy, cleansing light of the pulpit (screens).

Anyone that thinks the DNC or GOP rank and file are the "Resistance" is an idiot. For the most part both parties are the same. And the elected officials of those parties have more in common with each other than the people they represent.

Regardless of if the Kochs back a Dem, they still represent one of the largest problems in this country. A 1% that ultimately has more power than the other 99%.

BTW: Since the Kochs have a long history of wanting the smallest government possible, using your own logic, doesn't this mean that the GOP are no longer the party that wants a limited government? I guess a large portion of Republican and Libertarian voters are now going to be voting D.

The only "resistance" is to freedom, individuality, personal responsibility.

You should tell that to the media.

You know, that's what I can't quite figure out about the koch's. I guess all it can mean is they're more pro slave labor than they are small government. The republican party has only had moments of being a small government party. They are a big government party even if the rank and file are not. So maybe that's what the koch's are saying "republicans aren't giving me small government anyway and they're trying to take muh slaves! So I'll go for the big government pro slave party!"

But they're not saying they're going Dem. They're saying they may entertain backing Dems. So they're still going to primarily back GOP candidates. All this really says is that the DNC (despite claims made by ATS members) is going farther Right.

BTW: The people that have been opposed to the Kochs for a while now have no problem admitting that the biggest reason the Kochs want a small government is because they want slave labor.

What does that say about the Libertarian-types that have backed the Kochs for years?

I tried to warn republicans for years that they were only useful to the elite because they had lost all of their political capital and would do anything to stay relevant, i.e. be controlled by money. As soon as the switch of power was complete and the left went from the counter culture in the social wars to the establishment the elite cockroaches would show their true colors -- and they have. Why is this happening? Because authoritarianism is infinitely easier to get away with on the left than it is on the right. People are clueless about what happened in the 20th century on the left and all they know is Hitler was a bad guy so anything rightwing must be equated to the Nazis.

The other day I heard people discussing that dirty secrets in Joseph Stalin's personal life shouldn't discredit his heroic work as a revolutionary and leader. Here in America this is happening.

To be fair, wouldn't the Libertarian argument be that border states should be able to set their own immigration laws?

So by getting the Feds out of the equation, doesn't that sound like a more traditionally Conservative position?

How true. Now, they are conservatives or at best neo-liberal which really is conservatism with enough foresight to promote a wider variety of ''markets'' to be exploited for their own profit. These that you say are not real liberals tend more towards maintaining the profit stream for corporations than moving towards a true liberal agenda.

So wait, which is it? You say that the Left has been "vilifying" the Kochs for decades, you put "evil" in scare quotes but then you go onto how they "love sweet, sweet slave labor."

Make up your mind. If you believe that the Kochs promote slave labor, then wouldn't you also have to believe that they are evil? And if that's the case, were they really ever vilified?

Here's you back in 2013 when you were buying into the Tea Party bull# and pretending to care about balanced budgets:


originally posted by: DfairliteDespite Democrats not wanting to balance the budget, the tea party demanded the sequester to ensure a balanced (or more balanced) budget came about. They've been willing to tackle all three, military, SS, and Medicare. Just because the left refuses to compromise doesn't make the tea party a failure. They want to cut a bunch of the other abc's as well, because they're not constitutional.

No one expects them to accomplish all of it on their first showing, but they need to show a good faith effort. Which, imo, they've done. They've tried to defund and repeal Obamacare, which is a huge reason they, along with other republicans were sent to Washington.

I don't get the obsession leftists have with the Koch brothers. It's like they believe if they say those words, they automatically win. News flash: you don't.


Sounds like now you're just butt hurt because the oligarchs who convinced a lot of you back in 2008 that you were anti-establishment — when they basically created the Tea Party — aren't big fans of Trump. The Kochs are massively in support of blanket deregulation (sure you love that), probably the largest funders of AGW denialism (bet ya love that too) and they're anti-labor (let's be honest, your only problem with "slave labor" is probably exploited illegals and it's not that you care that they're exploited).

As for the list, LMAO. It's just a loose collection of half-assed low info opinions. Let's start with Facebook. Facebook was the primary vehicle for Trump's propaganda in 2016. Don't take my word for it though.

Trump’s digital director explains how he used Facebook to help win the White House


The Trump campaign’s digital director credits Facebook in helping to fuel the president’s surprising win last November.

In an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday, Brad Parscale said Facebook “was the method” for President Donald Trump’s stunning rise to the White House. Parscale, who spearheaded the small Trump campaign team’s digital and fundraising efforts, contended that the team took advantage of Facebook in a way Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign did not.

“Facebook now lets you get to places and places possibly that you would never go with TV ads,” Parscale, web director at San Antonio-based marketing and design firm Giles Parscale, told CBS. “Now, I can find, you know, 15 people in the Florida Panhandle that I would never buy a TV commercial for. And, we took opportunities that I think the other side didn’t.”

He pointed to the Trump campaign having Facebook employees “embedded inside our offices” to explain how to use the platform to target voters. Parscale wanted Trump-supporting Facebook employees to offer guidance, and the company already had divisions “set up” by political affiliation, he said.

Parscale said he “heard” Clinton’s campaign got the same offer but did not accept it.

It is kind of funny.

The backing of the Kochs gave the Tea Party a huge boost in 2010. Leading to the GOP Hegemony we're still experiencing.

Now they start trying to break into the DNC and suddenly the Kochs are fascists.

What does that say about the past few decades of GOP politics?

BWAHAHAHA..

Basically all of corporate America/big business are conservative Republicans..


Conservatives have dominated American politics for the majority of the time..



The definition of conservatism is to uphold the traditions of the past or bring back a bygone era.. aka literally the establishment by literal definition.. lol



I think it is extremely telling that you think liberals are the establishment, when the democrat party is comprised of the least powerful people in America..

Blacks, gays, Hispanics, academia...

The only 2 wealthy and influential fields dominated by liberals are silicone valley and Hollywood..



That’s right.. the people who usually came from nothing and only used their own skills and talents to become world famous.. are mostly liberals..

You sure it isn’t just that the definition of conservatism is to uphold the establishment rather than experiment with new social change...


By definition conservatism is attempting to CONSERVE the establishment..


They just hype the yokels up over crazy conspiracy theories , so they will allow them to rape and pillage the economy..

No the libertarian position, which is the alleged koch position, is that there shouldn't be any borders. HOWEVER, in order for that to be a libertarian policy, there also has to be no welfare state.

The koch's use that position to justify their use of slave labor and abuse of the welfare state to fund their slave labor. Which is not a libertarian position at all.
