I’m not a fan of Corporate America.
I’ve never supported their low-tax, low-wage, pro-immigration, anti-working class capitalist agenda. These people are not our political allies. On the contrary, these business leaders are among the strongest supporters of amnesty for illegal aliens in America:
“This is a political, economic and moral imperative. The sooner that Congress resolves this situation — on a permanent basis — the sooner dreamers can seize the opportunity to plan their lives and develop their talents.
This extraordinary set of circumstances has brought the two of us together as co-authors. We are business leaders who sometimes differ on the issues of the day. Yet, on a question as straightforward as this one, we are firmly aligned.
As a matter of both policy and principle, we strongly agree that Congress must act before the end of the year to bring certainty and security to the lives of dreamers. Delay is not an option. Too many people’s futures hang in the balance. …”
Aren’t the Koch brothers supposed to be super rightwing conservative billionaires though? They’re rightwing in the sense of being extreme libertarians who relentlessly work against the interests of their own ethnic group in pursuit of the goal of making as much money for themselves as possible. They are motivated by Ayn Rand’s “Virtue of Selfishness” whereas we are motivated by altruism and a sense of duty to future generations and a desire to honor our forefathers.
The Koch Brothers are behind the push for tax reform. They’re the kind of people who have been quarreling with Sen. Marco Rubio over a minor child tax credit because reducing the corporate tax rate to 22 percent instead of 20 percent would “undermine” the economic growth goals of the bill. We’re not doing enough to make life easier for America’s beleaguered billionaires.
I’m just going to be completely honest with you here … I hate these people. I hate their pathetic virtue signaling. I hate the fact that they are exploiting our anger over the racial and cultural decline of our country in order to push their disgusting neoliberal economic agenda. More than anything else, I am sick of these bloodsucking parasites who have such a small constituency getting their way.
During the Republican primaries, I found Trump refreshing because he was telling the truth about how donors like the Koch Brothers have made politicians into their puppets. They have all their conservative puppets in Congress dancing to do tax reform. Even if Trump was cynically using that talking point as a campaign ploy to get through the primaries, he was telling the truth in that moment.
Behind this facade of democracy, the Republican Party is catering to the views of the donor class. It is doing it with the Koch Brothers on tax reform. It did it with Sheldon Adelson on Jerusalem. These greedy bastards aren’t satisfied though. They keep pushing for more at the expense of voters.
I have a feeling it is going to come back to bite them big time.
