Image from left to right, Charles Koch and David Koch

Jane Mayer writing at The New Yorker authored an incredibly jaded and leftist-slanted piece on the billionaire Koch brothers of the privately owned Koch Industries. The upside to the article, beside the unsurprising liberal tone, is that I now know more about David H. Koch and Charles Koch - they are libertarians that give generously (read millions) to what Jane Mayer calls 'right wing' causes.
Yes, right wing such as Americans for Prosperity - started by David Koch in 2004.
Could have fooled me but I thought that APP fought the good fight against the current fiscal pillaging taking place in Washington (and very effective with over a million activists). It's too bad that leftists like Jane Mayer at The New Yorker turn a blind eye to communist George Soros' Democrat-socialist operation but that is just how the ruling class press works.
The Kochs are longtime libertarians who believe in drastically lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services for the needy, and much less oversight of industry....
Indeed, the brothers have funded opposition campaigns against so many Obama Administration policies—from health-care reform to the economic-stimulus program—that, in political circles, their ideological network is known as the Kochtopus.
If you really want to get a sense of the heroes that the Koch brothers are, read this piece of filth at Soros-troll propagandist site, Think Progress, "The Billionaires Behind the Hate."
Of course, "hate" is opposition to the progressive-collectivist agenda. Greenpeace also considers the Koch brothers one of their most ardent enemies, hence this kind of moonbattery:
