Interesting Omission by Stoll!
Reader comment on: The New Yorker on David and Charles Koch
Submitted by Steve (United States), Aug 28, 2010 08:15
I find it interesting that Stoll limited debate to the left wing/right wing argument. The most insidious indictment in the article is that the Koch brothers have hijacked the fear and anger of honestly discontent and fearful patriotic Americans and manipulated them without full disclosure. The "Tea Baggers"as they used to be called have unwittingly become the "toads" represented in the article as "coming out of the mud".
What, no comment on Buckley's branding the brothers Koch as "Anarchistic Totalitarians"?
This is the real expose', the down defining of socialism in order to use it as bait in support of their relentless extreme right wing attacks to "rip this government out by the roots". The Koch's do not seem to be interested in a constitutional representative democracy and seem to have subverted the honest intentions of many of those who are.
