  1. The Koch Brothers (pronounced Coke) ARE the enemy. Boycott ALL their
    products. Out all the organizations and people they fund. Fight for a
    democratic society.

  2. Oh, you hate the Tea Party too, huh? Something tells me you would have
    hated the first Tea Party also, no?

  3. well its not every person in the 1% to go after, its the crony capitalist
    who you want to go after, there called the globalist, the New World Order
    elite who want to bring a one world government, centralized banking, one
    law of the world where the government is set up as a communist socialist
    government and where everyone is enslaved to work for them, its the one
    things conservatives fear most and it is already happening because of
    Obama, and our last three presidents that we had

  4. Ignorance and mental retardation have NOTHING in common. The mentally
    retarded possess a marked or observed deficit in learning capacity. The
    ignorant(you) maintain a willingness to proceed WITHOUT knowing. You
    possess the makings of a legitimate subject. Pick up a book and read it.

  5. read the definition of “ignorant” lacking knowledge or uneducated. those
    with mental retardation might be incapable of becoming educated or
    knowledgeable therefore there ignorant.

  6. Saying Fuck socialist countries is the same as saying fuck: quality of
    life, social upward mobility, happiness index, standard of living, stress
    ranking, employment rate, wealth equality and ect… Stalinist/Moaist
    societies are democratic socialist, im not on about them. They are
    dictatorship. How about you move to libertarian utopia Somalia?

  7. 1. why cap the ceo to average employee pay ratio? if you don’t like that
    they get paid more than you get you than you don’t have to work for them.
    2. why maximum wage for executives? these guys are successful. they should
    get paid like it. #3 in your list i won’t contest for now. 4.tax the rich
    more? if your going to do income tax it should be an equal % o what you
    make regardless of how much you make. aka no tax brackets. 5. price control
    really? if an item is to expensive for u don’t buy it.

  8. #6 on your list i won’t contest for now. 7. nationalize all natural
    resources. do you mean to steal land from farmers and people that own oil
    reserves and so on? #8 on your list i won’t contest for now. i would
    describe Somalia as semi-anarchy mixed with sharia law with transitional
    democracy starting to come about.

  9. Muhammed Smith. You have the right to breath just like you have right to
    public services. You don’t steal public property and call it yours to own
    when it really belonging to each and every citizen living there. Mining
    interests, corrupt politicians, resources thieves are leeching off our
    country. The equal right of all men to resources is clear as their equal
    right to breathe the air. Unless you’re the God who created these resources
    like Gate create Microsoft then you no claim of ownership.

  10. you lost me when I saw the nice digs and accoutrements like computers,
    granite countertops the food stamp user, social security recipient lived
    with.

  11. Its not the 1% thats at fault, its the government in Washington that makes
    the rules and gets in bed with the crony capitalism folks. There were many
    rich people before in our country, from JP Morgan who worked with Thomas
    Edison to Rockafeller, yet we became the worlds richest country. Instead of
    blaming bankers and these Wall Street types, blame those who bailed them
    out why dont you. In a true capitalism those who make mistakes fail, not
    prosper and thanks to politicians they are doing that.

  12. I for one would like to say I am not envious of the Koch brothers. Besides
    not wishing to have a billion dollars — a few million would be nice but
    not a billion, thank you — (unless I could use the money to actually
    improve society) they gained much of their money by screwing over the rest
    of us. No thank you! I would not want their karma. I can’t imagine such
    evil spoiled babies with that much money and power going out of their way
    to ruin the lives of poor black kids, the elderly, struggling single
    mothers. Despicable!

  13. OMG are you kidding me? @ 8:36 Why is she on food stamps? Look at her
    kitchen!! Good thing you get $16 a month. People in other countries are
    literally starving to death and we’re complaining about how hungry we are.
    But I thought we had an obesity epidemic?!

  14. Every sovereign nation in the world has the ABSOLUTE right to issue its own
    debt-free and interest-free money based on that nation’s credit and wealth.
    This money would be issued through its treasury and not its central bank –
    the latter being a criminal debt-creating enterprise set up by the banking
    dynasties that creates money completely out of thin air (fractional reserve
    lending) and then charges interest on this nothingness. Check out the
    UK Bradbury Pound and the US Greenback Dollar. The global elite (Koch
    family included) account not for 1% but 0.0000000000001% of the world’s
    population…….but they control the world’s money supply. So what are
    YOU going to do about it?

  15. Capitalism is one epic failed system of gigantic proportion as communism
    was, capitalism is only just maybe slightly better than communism but
    still a quasi functioning system that failed us and it breeds nepotism,
    cronyism, corruption, favoritism, monopolistic suppression and subjugation.
    Holy fuck man, this idea of private property ownership is a flaw concept
    that has been exploited by the radical idealistic fanatics. This created a
    whole class of unwanted, unneeded, valueless, worthless, bunch of ownership
    class that rigged the monopolistic system of capitalism and oppress/deprive
    99% of its citizens. Talk about evil privileges inheriting that allow the
    sinister heirs to continue the looting, ravaging, raiding, destroying our
    country. Rich leeches infestation is bleeding and killing our nation.
    Pointless and damaging idea of property inheriting system is what is so
    wrong about our democracy. Nationalize all our oil mines and industries
    like Norway/Iran/Malaysia did. It benefits us all. We need a new system, a
    third alternative: SOCIAL DEMOCRACY.

  16. Libertarians are bunch of clowns. Ayan Rand used the welfare system in her
    dying days, Ron Paul are using the welfare system now as we speak, Koch
    brothers taking corporate welfare subsidies, Paul Ryan used the system
    during his college days, Red states welfare recipients are taking money
    from the government too possibly more than blue states. Christian
    conservatives are even more pathetic, they claimed to love Jesus, against
    abortion and appose gay rights but when their beloved capitalism was
    criticized by the pope, these loose cannon God loving Republicans all went
    ballistic. I did not know they can cherry pick which rules to follow and
    which to oppose/ignore in the bible.

  17. This is such a blatant hit piece. The Kochs have the right to fund
    conservative foundations just as the Ford, Carnegie and other foundations
    work for a socialist state. This is the stated goal of the Ford foundation,
    listen to interview with congressional investigator Norman Dodd on youtube.
    All of these elite sickos are trying to engineer our society to their
    taste. Some are socialist, some fascist but the thing they all agree on is
    keeping power (money) in the hands of a few. They see the alternative as
    “chaos”, the unwashed masses, their minds already dulled by propaganda must
    be controlled…or else. The socialist foundations are probably WORSE than
    the Kochs!

  18. Another thought… When I see discussions developping underneath
    documentaries like these… I still see divisions of people… literally
    divided people, either left OR right, either dem or rep either … while
    that is exactly what “they” (whomever you want to point any fingers to,
    including one self) would like to see so they can just continue behind the
    screens… shit, the ones in power support ALL sides… (easiest thing to
    illustrate this is the business of weapons… hell, they support wars on
    both sides… with HK’s or AK’s, doesn’t matter, as long as the money is
    coming in.

    So, instead of focusing on which “side” one is on, we’ld better start to
    realize what our common values and goals are and work towards that WITH an
    “educated mind” (whatever that may mean at the moment).

    So good luck all, good luck and I guess I’ll meet you all halfway…

    After we burned down some of those welthy ivory towers, obviously ;).

  20. I get the point, but the logic is off a bit. You rather have common core?
    Yeah and Obamacare has held up to every promise. Less government is better.

  21. When segregation is back on the table you know that the system is already
    fucked beyond repair. These people deserve to die for what they are doing
    to the American people and I don’t understand why they haven’t been killed
    or imprisoned already. You can get life in jail for drug possession but
    these cock suckers get nothing for their crimes. America is fucked and I’m
    glad I don’t live there, I am ashamed that my government is a puppet to
    America but I’m nowhere as ashamed as I would be if I were an American
    citizen. You guy’s pretend that you need your guns for a reason and this is
    it, go and fix your own fucking country for the sake of your people and
    maybe you will remember what freedom and pride taste like again. America is
    a cancer in the eyes of the entire world and we all know it is the
    Government and not the people to blame, but the people need to take
    responsibility for fixing this cold blooded, money hungry death machine.

  22. …this was by an “acclaimed” director? It has the feel of “special
    investigation” news story. All the background noises and snapcuts. Why is
    there so much music in this? I don’t know how seriously to take this now.
    Stopped halfway through. What the fuck.

  23. Don’t believe the lies: David and Charles Koch are Great American
    philanthropists, who support many very worthy charitable causes, and they
    are not Birchers.

    (Agreed, however, that the Birchers are nuts. I don’t know whether they
    were nuts 55 years ago, but they are certainly nuts now.)

  24. After watching this video I finally understood why so many things that do
    not make sense to our democracy and livelihood are going on and on…….
    The good news is We the People win every time!

  25. Thanks too the uploader for this. As a Brit, I cannot comprehend how this
    allowed to go on, it seems the whole democratic process of your wonderful
    country is being hijacked under your very eyes! Is there never any
    investigations into how your political figures are funded? I find it
    absolutely outrageous what went on in Wisconsin, it was so clearly visible,
    the political agenda being carried out by proxy, why wasn’t the candidate
    ruled ineligible? Goldman Sachs, Koch Brothers and the rest of the elite
    are systematically enslaving a nation and that’s not an exaggeration, When
    you have someone like Alan Greenspan fucking up the World on behalf of
    these twats by dismissing financial regulation and the ensuring of
    environmental disaster by allowing elected members of your senate/congress
    to advocate on behalf of the Koch Brothers and others, what chance do your
    children have? What I don’t get is why so many ‘normal’ Americans fall for
    blatant manipulation, such as ‘Americans for prosperity’ can they not see
    the agenda behind it, how can they not see? The UK’s political system is
    far from perfect but the lobbying and the way the American media can be
    bought, twisted and plied is beyond me and I find it disgusting. It is such
    a shame, one day, I hope America returns to the ‘land of opportunity’ and
    your people all have a shot at that beautiful term ‘The American dream’
    regardless of race, religion or social standing. Alas, unless there is a
    fundamental change in your political process,I fear the worst. Thank you
    🙂

  26. I was wondering why the Kochs are being singled out for so much scrutiny.
    Since the Rockefellers are also petroleum thugs, they should also be
    exposed

  27. I think ordinary citizens have proven males like the Koch brothers do not
    control the American government, even with all their money.

    What’s amazing is the Koch’s continue pouring money into a dead horse, and
    expect it to race and win. The “horse” I’m speaking of is the Republican
    Party and the ghastly mess it has become, the mess that even today
    continues to grow thanks to 400 million dollar infusions of cash by the
    Kochs and their continual support of — human garbage and the most foul and
    low of political ideals.

    Their political losses will only get worse.

  28. I don’t think most people understand exactly what the pathway is that the
    Koch brothers are attempting to dump on the USA. We certainly didn’t know
    what it was and we spent an enormous amount of time running through all the
    Koch networks, never realizing there was something way way more sinister
    than just a bunch of crazy republicans.

    Our volunteers finally brought all the paperwork to one table, paperwork on
    all the radical crazy groups. We had one question. What does this look like?

    To me, it looked like Stalin, Joseph Stalin. Immediately the team went to
    work doing more research, and wa-la — discovered Koch worked closely and
    personally with none other than Joseph Stalin on Stalin’s “First Five Year
    Plan”. That plan had all the dynamics we see in the Koch network today,
    right down to the white supremacists. At this point, all they haven’t
    achieved is the violent overthrow of our government BUT they are absolutely
    calling for violence and revolution and they ARE ramping up that call.

    What Koch originally did was gather 12 very seedy characters together to
    form the John Birch Society and they gave it a name that they knew would
    grab unknowing Christians. They named it after a guy they didn’t even know.
    From there the network formed a massive white supremacist group, formed the
    libertarian groups and ultimately the tea party and fake christian
    churches/pastors. As well, the Kochs set up every caliber and type of
    secret sleezy business network you can think of, and paid off politicians.
    While yelping about “mooches” in American society, the Kochs asked for and
    received a 100 million dollar handout from the American government.

    The Kochs are solidly in the republican party as are their tea party and
    libertarian groupies.

    Those people, all of them, are crazy and dangerous, and they are every
    reason we have to stay strong with the Democrats. If we fail, the Kochs and
    their goons will achieve their anti-American goals.

    You remember all this when it’s time to vote, and share this with all the
    people you know. You can verify everything I’ve written here on Google.

  29. then we wonder why America is going to perish…. A lot of good people who
    are innocent are going to parish along with the rest of the money hungry
    pieces of s*** that run this country

  30. The Cock Bros. are a detesable bunch. They care only for themselves, their
    interests and their money. It’s as though they think they can take it with
    them when they die.
    Many don’t know their sordid history. Their father started his business in
    Texas and Oklahoma, (imagine that) with an “oyl” recovery system of trucks
    that pumped and then sold oil from small land-owners, mostly Reservation
    Indians. You can see them still, all over the oil belt.
    Anyway…..and this is documented, they consistently short-changed the
    people that they serviced, and hence made huge profits for many years. They
    now own most of the world. Nice guys, they.
    Now, with their ill-gotten billions of dollars, they want to buy your
    freedom, (or at least the illusion of it). I guess that you can just
    give-in, resign yourselves to the inevitible, keep chasing a buck, and
    pooping out kids that will one day curse you for their birth, or you can do
    something about it. Think about it, think for yourself, and act.

  31. If a country can nationalize water, gas, electricity and many other common
    goods why can’t our country unable to nationalized OIL? Norway is doing
    well with their resources nationalized. Marx, Friedman, Adamn Smith and
    Henry George agree more or less on one thing:”Land Tax”. Marx was a
    communist, George, Adamn and Friedman were laissez faire capitalists but
    for some reasons they believe anything created and provided by
    mother-nature shouldnt be entirely owned by private monopoly. See
    “Georgism”. Google it for reference. Read Smith’s The Wealth of Nations.

  32. If anyone out there thinks that we live in a democracy “think again”. After
    watching this movie we know who controls this country,

  33. A socialist has an horizon comparable to that of an ant:
    “Look, there’s a social barrier, citizen, can you see it? -Vote for us. We
    can fix that.”
    While fixing they will cause many new barriers and enslavements because
    that’s the nature of any regulation. But, they can start to fix things
    again which turns people on again… @ (vicious circle).

    What counts though is the global and antiseptic view on things AND beeing
    social is your beer as an individual not that of a government.

  34. *Will the Koch Brothers buy the next election?*

    Before we decide Republican or Democrat, do your own research. REAL
    research. Read who is donating money to campaigns, who manages those funds,
    where do the funds go. Who’s setting up fake web sites to fool voters. What
    corporations are donating (investing) in specific political campaigns. Easy
    reading? Absolutely not. It’s made to confuse American’s, it’s made to so
    smart people have no idea who’s buying American votes. Now you have no
    excuse.

    #votersuppression #voterid #campaigning #politics #democracy #obama
    #immigration #votolatino #naacp #republicanparty

  35. This is totally fucked up people who are greedy like this will never
    prosper. They may have it all right now but they are going to pay dearly
    you can’t keep playing with people’s livelihood.

  36. The Koch Brothers are Killing People and Animals by the 1000’s, while they
    rape and pollute the planet. Why are they Not in jail?

  37. Sadly the Koch Brothers are trying to subvert our democracy for their own
    personal agenda.. Why dismantle the EPA you ask? Well it is pretty easy to
    see that the Koch Brothers would profit greatly from getting rid of the one
    agency that can have some positive effect in ending much of their pollution
    and save them personal money.

  38. Oh my God!

    The Koch bros want you to keep your own money and invest in your own
    retirement the way you see fit?

    The Koch bros want middle class people to send their kids to good schools,
    which THEY PAY FOR, without having their kids lumped in with gang bangers
    and other undesirables from broken families?

    And they have the nerve to make profits?!

    What a bunch of evil, RACIST fascists!

    Good thing we have Al Gore and George Soros, who would never manipulate our
    political system or push an ideologically driven agenda on us.

  39. The Koch Brothers are two old vampires who won’t stop until they control
    the world. No matter how much money they suck up, it will never be enough.

  40. Why aren’t the Koch Brothers in prison? Why don’t you liberal Democrats ask
    the same thing about super-billionaire Nazi collaborator George Soros?

  41. “There is always two side to every story, your just on the wrong side.”

    Now, we are on the correct side of the story, and history…you are on the
    Reich side.

  42. Sickening sickening sickening!!! All that money and be top in America but
    destroying it meanwhile. These guys are so wise Huh and that money just
    going to save in the end I suppose.

  43. I don’t know anything about these Koch brothers, but much of what is said
    about them, seem to come from the jews and their powerful media, so we have
    to verify the Khabr (news, narrations) that comes from the Fasiqeen
    (immoral, disobedient sinners), lest we harm others in ignorance.

    But from my understanding, and this is only my opinion with a limited
    information about what is going on. Then I think it is more likely that
    this is a battle between the rich powerful ashkenazi jews (illuminati,
    communists, atheists, liberals) and these rich american non-jew families
    that are left, who have not yet been devoured by the jews or fallen to them.

    So why so much blame on these men, when it is the jews who run the usury
    banks and are devouring the sustenance of mankind?

    Never trust the jew media, ever. Look at how they made everyone believe
    9/11 was done by Muslims, while it was done by them.

  44. Republicans have it all wrong. We’re not mad because there are ultra rich
    people. In fact we our selves would like to one day have wealth. The issue
    we have is that there are ultra rich people such as the coch brothers who
    manipulate the system in their favor and in ways never seen before in this
    country. The declaration of independence states that all men are created
    equal. What the coch brothers are doing is eroding that equality and
    eroding the ability for democracy to function the way it was intended by
    our founding fathers…

  46. People dont dislike millionaires/billionaires. However most people with
    morals do have a strong dislike for people who use force, coercion, and
    fraud to acquire and maintain said wealth.

  47. You cant have Hot Dog and cook outs if we don’t keep funding public
    schools? 55% of our budget here in my town. Parents need to realize those
    of us that do not have kids in the system, DON’T WANT TO PAY FOR YOURS.
    Period. You had your kids. Thats your decision. NOT MINE.

  48. Their money will not save them in the end which is coming upon this country
    very soon! Go Bernie Sanders!!!!!

  49. How do you get someone this rich to change their mind? They will not change
    their mind. If their actions spoil the life of millions what do you do? Do
    you reason with them? They do not see reason. Do you fine them? They have
    enough money to counter any fine you impose on them. What do you do. Take
    over their business? Jail them for crimes against the American people? OR
    WHAT?

  50. Can we have a world and education based on love and respect? To do this it
    seems we need to want it and trust we can have it.

  51. It would seem to appear the Koch Brothers are jockeying with each other to
    see who will be declared the true antichrist! The Koch Brothers prove their
    is no God. If their was the bros would be smoldering ashes, victims of a
    lightning strike.

  52. ALEC, the American Legislation Exchange Council funded by the American Koch
    Bros is behind Canada’s voting law modification. Changes made to give
    Harper’s Conservatives the advantage in the next election. Seeking the
    influence of subversive political operatives from another nation that don’t
    have the Canadian people’s best interest at heart is bordering on treason!
    40:00

  53. wow.those koch brothers houses looks very small.the averafe rich in india
    has big houses than koch brothers.but they sure do have lots of money than
    most rich indians.

  54. Wow, These guys are as bad as MONSANTO, dumping toxic chemicals everywhere and killing people. People race for the cure for cancer, but we should race for the CAUSE for cancer. We all know by now that which corporations are making billions by making people sick. They are as bad as all those war criminals.

  55. U READY FOR THIS…..STOP THEM BEFORE THEY DAMAGE U AND YOUR FAMILY
    INCLUDING YOUR CHILDREN …STOP THEM NOW !!!

  56. More left wing propaganda and lies. The democrats need a boggy man to try
    and hide their massive failed policies. Where is all the info on where the
    Koch Bros have given Millions to hospitals, Museums and all the other
    charity’s?. There is nothing wrong with being Rich, Even though the
    democrat party is the Party of the rich they try and demonize the Koch
    Bros. Democrats get donations from the super Rich like Warren Buffett,
    George Soros, Hollywood elites, Wall St., Big Business, etc,…

  57. Boycott Koch Industry products! Google for a list. Don’t buy Brawny paper
    towels, quilted Northern and American Greetings cards, etc!

  58. Very interesting, I could have done without the part where they go over the
    extravigant homes and rich boy toys they own but, hey, I get it. It’s very
    telling, on the other side, how loyal a following these guys have too. I
    personally don’t like them, but I don’t like Goerge Soros either. Not for
    their wealth but their meddling in politics causing a money race that
    innevitably drives those politicians who would have otherwise been less
    corruptable right into their, (the Kochs and Soros), arms. Very sobering
    though, this is why we need money out of politics, limits on how much money
    can be used in any local, state or federal election, dismantling of PACs
    and special interest groups and abolition of lobbyists from the government
    altogether! And I mean for all sides…

  59. “What do you know about the Koch brothers? Have you ever been invited to
    meet with them?”

    One doesn’t need to meet with anyone to SEE the actual, REAL effect they
    have on society as a whole. Example: I’ve never met YOU, but I know you are
    simplistic, brain washed dipshit due to your POST HERE. See how that works?

    No, of course you don’t.

  60. If there is anything that could possibly give back the House of
    Representatives to the Dems this fall it is a backlash against these guys.

    Rethink Afghanistan). The billionaire brothers bankroll a vast network of
    organizations that work to undermine the interests of the 99% on issues
    ranging from Social Security to the environment to civil rights. This film
    uncovers the Kochs’ corruption—and points the way to how Americans can
    reclaim their democracy.”

  61. The irony, vain man causing cancer with his pollutants gets cancer. Trust
    me there are worst things waiting for these fiends.

  62. Democrats are gung ho for pitting ordinary women against their male
    counterparts so the Koch Brothers have an abundance of cheap labor.
    Democrats are gung ho for increasing low skilled immigration so the Koch
    Brothers have an abundance of cheap labor. Democrats love the Koch Brothers
    as much as Republicans do.

  63. These Jewish elitists in America have gone out of control… Americans
    should really wake up like the rest of Europe did in 1930. There is a
    reason for that kind of hate. Hate doesn’t happen for no reason.

  64. Read the statement by David Koch from 1980, how he wished to abolish Social
    Security, Medicare, minimum wage, any taxation on the wealthy, all
    business regulation. Read about how their father was a huge racist. The
    Kochs have been at this for a long time. They are evil.

  65. So bizarre….A tycoon who honed his business skills under the watchful eye
    of the great capitalist…..Stalin? …returns to America a
    foaming-at-the-mouth racist (go figure), and raises 2 egomaniacal sons who
    claim to be libertarians who hate government, but in fact just hate
    humanity…and launch a buy all you can campaign to control ALL of the
    politics in the country just to pollute it, milk it,and punish the rest of
    us for using their oxygen. Only a true “socialist” ( like Stalin!) would
    have the need, the drive, and the soulless resolution to try to control an
    entire population. Old man Koch learned well from a psychotic master, and
    passed the lesson on, intact, to his boys. Papa would be so proud of his
    little tykes.

  66. I can’t understand how all these Koch drones can’t see what his intentions
    truly are. Obama is trying to get the US off of foreign oil, trying to push
    clean energy and suddenly all of these “libertarians and Tea party”
    movements spring up calling for “smaller government” and “free market”, all
    funded by big oil companies like Koch industries.
    Of course, they want fewer regulations and less government oversight.
    What has amazed me is that in the age of “global information” it has become
    more easy than ever to cover the truth and hide information.

  67. They are not fighting unions to pay their workers less. They are not that
    short sighted, they want to crush the unions to bankrupt the financial base
    of the Democrats.

  68. While the perspective in this film is somewhat skewed. These are exactly
    the same tactics used by St. Joseph’s mining company and the I.L.A.
    (International Lead Association). They infiltrated into government and
    academia to promote the use of lead in water systems, discourage any health
    concerns and ultimately destroy the public movement against lead use which
    started in the New York popular press way back in the 1880’s. It wasn’t
    until 1986 that the clean air and water act prohibited the use of lead in
    water because it causes learning disabilities, developmental problems, and
    brain cancer. Yet we still have hospitals bearing their name all over the
    country. Many water systems still contain lead galvanized components and
    continue to impact the health of people. If we really want to challenge
    them, we need to find a way not to need what products they have monopoly
    control over. Basically, we each need more efficient living situations,
    ideally net-zero living (no external power). Also growing our own food, if
    we do not need their money to survive then it counts for nothing in terms
    of power. Regardless, this sustainable alternative is the only solution to
    the problems arising from the great acceleration and several global mega
    trends. Global warming is just one facet in this picture.

  69. OutlawedSpank said this film was propaganda… He was probably just
    trolling, but I feel that this film does a big disservice to the cause it’s
    trying to serve by mixing elements of blatant propaganda and smear job with
    evidence backed valid points.
    The efect is the discreditation of those valid points that, if presented by
    themselves would have been irrefutable.
    For instance:
    They show how the Kochs are influencing the public oppinion and the
    government to get their way, and then bash them for not helping the “home
    owners who’s homes have been foreclosed on”… What the hell has that got
    to do with anything?
    Oh… they have that many houses and poor people have none… they are bad
    bad people because they don’t help out and keep all their money for
    themselves, and want to make more money…
    That’s some sympathy alienating propaganda right there. A lot of people
    will feel like identifying with them. They’ll think “What’s wrong with
    being a little selfish?”
    The point of this film shouldn’t be that they are being selfish, but that
    they abuse (and are allowed to abuse) a lot of the power that their money
    gives them. That’s the problem.
    They are sick. They are addicted to money and power. And that’s by no means
    a singular case (as, again, this film eludes to). This addiction is
    omnipresent all over in our society, especially in the higher wealth
    echelons. However, the entire stucture of our society is to blame for this
    affliction, and it’s up to everybody to try and change it. Demonizing an
    addict for being an addict is rarely productive…

    I’m even starting to doubt the good intentions of this video. It actually
    helps the Kochs get the sympathy of some of the people that used to hate
    them, just because of the virulence and occasional irrationality of this
    film…

    🙁

  70. I can’t believe we’re sending dope sellers to jail while these assholes get
    away with destroying nature and people’s lives. They’re disgusting.

  71. TO ALL LIBERALS AND DEMOCRATS: SHOULD WE TALK ABOUT GEORGE SOROS, TOM
    STEYER AND A.C.O.R.N. Funny how you and Greenwald cannot see your own
    hypocrisy. I guess Obamacare really is trainwreck when you cannot defend
    it and your only bag of tricks left is Koch Bros. attacks

  72. Raise the soc sec age to 70 when corps won’t hire over 40? I paid into that
    fund. It is Soc Sec INSURANCE. Awful people. Just awful.
