I’m almost as old as the KOCH Bros, although living at the opposite end of the financial spectrum, surviving on Social Security and Food Stamps. But I remember their father well. When I was in college learning the difference between liberal and conservative, and the ethical difference between right and wrong, their father was pouring his money into an obscure right-wing organization.
I knew the John Birch Society was so fascist and greed-driven that surely it would wither and die, ignored by all the great Americans who had won WWII at home and abroad, fighting to save the World and Our Democracy from domination by Hitler’s Naziism. What I did not realize at that time was that there were Sociopathic fascists right here in America who more quietly shared his same Nazi compulsion for World Domination. One of their leaders was Fred Koch.
While Fred’s sons were reared in wealth stolen from others, I worked my way thru college like millions of Americans did during the 60s, with a working wife, help from parents and student loans, even dropping out a year to work. When I remember struggling to pay tuition of less than $200 per semester at a state college, it boggles my mind how much I paid to send my youngest son to a sister state university 4 decades later, and cannot understand how any University administrator can sleep at night charging what they do today. Universities have evolved as a fascist tool to keep the intellectual population in debt, so they will owe their souls to Corporate Fascism, and not rebel before being fully inducted into the Corporate Clan.
In a college psych course, I learned this truth: if you take a frog and throw it into a pot of hot water, it will instantly jump out as an automatic defense reaction. However, if you put the same frog in a pot of cool water, then raise the temperature slowly enough, it will sit there contentedly until it cooks.
Americans today are the frogs of Corporate Fascism. Throwing us in hot water was WWII. We fought Naziism as a Holy War, knowing fascism was evil and an invention of Satan. For each generation thereafter, American Corporate Fascists have turned up the heat slowly, war after war, all the while stealing more of the American Dream from a healthy and happy Middle Class, born out of prosperity from winning WWII, preserving democracy and crushing fascism. Democracy doesn’t work without a strong Middle Class, as all Corporate Fascists know.
By 1980, Corporate Fascism had grown strong enough to begin dismantling the safeguards that had been built by FDR a half century before, to protect us from America’s Fascist Corporations, masquerading under the misnomer of "conservatives". Conservatives conserve nothing but the wealth of the wealthiest.
They put an actor puppet with Alzheimer’s in the White House, and began seriously buying Congress with accelerated Corporate profits caused by Democratic Presidents having paid off the War debt, all the while increasing wealth of American Fascists like the Koch Bros. Today Charles and David are among the richest Nazis in the World, and they are winning their War against Democracy without firing a shot, tho not without murdering more Americans than Osama bin Laden did.
Like Hitler, everyone they have murdered was done legally. Whenever their crimes are about to be exposed — as when during the Healthcare debate it was revealed that Insurance Corporations murder 46,000 Americans per year — they use Projection to divert attention, claiming the mean old Government was setting up Death Panels, when they knew absolutely that Death Panels had been used by the Insurance Companies to increase profits since they were founded. Never mind the insanity of such a statement: the Government had NO reason for Death Panels, while Insurance Companies had EVERY reason to torture and murder Americans to increase profits by denying coverage and refusing to pay claims.
The evil Koch Twins of American Nazism employ dozens of highly paid staff in Washington, backed by their unearned billions, to influence hundreds of pieces of Legislation in Congress, each and every one intended to make rich Nazis richer, and to cover up reality of the slaughter and torture of Americans along the pathway to their increased wealth.
The frog is cooking in the water, unaware that heat has been steadily turned up this past century, to destroy democracy itself, replacing it with total dependence on a Global One-World-Order Military-Industrial-Media-Healthcare Corporate Fascism that would make Hitler drool with envy. They thought they had it made when they elected an ex-alcoholic AWOL born-again oil-rich Texas boob as President. Unlike Ronnie Rayguns, most of the time he could remember his lines, and did what he was told to do. Then, to cement his feet in history, they allowed over 3000 Americans to be mass murdered, while his brain-behind-the-throne-Vice-President, Satan’s Deputy Henchman, launched their fascist wet dream of endless Oil Wars.
But as the 21st Century opened, they turned the heat up too fast, causing Global Economic Collapse, and were afraid the frog might jump. So they chose an ancient "conservative" and an unknown whacko chickie to make certain that the Party they had totally bought, the Rethugs, would loose. Thats how a symbol of deep racial hatred was elected, so that all attention would be focused away from the Nazis, and toward the N*gger, knowing they could tie enough financial strings to him and make him dance to their fiddle playing.
And so it came to pass that the evil Nazi twins used their billions to birth a fraud wrapped in the false patriotism of a yellow flag with a snake on it, the tea party movement. When I grew up yellow was the color of cowardice, and a snake lured Adam and Eve from God’s Garden. It’s still the same.
Like their father before them, the Koch Brothers financed the fraud Americans for Prosperity to build the tea party nationally, and FreedomWorks (but only for the rich).
Brainwashing those simpletons already addicted to the FOXpox was a piece of cake. Getting them to scream their hatred at Town Hall staged media events was as easy as poking a snake with a stick.
All the while, professional con artists who are paid six figure salaries to incite the tea party were snickering at how easy it was to get these dolts to work for billionaire Nazis for free.
Having them march as their Storm Troopers draped with colorful fragments of American flags made them seem legitimate on TV, by co-opting an anti-war tactics of the late 60s, when fascists back then were claiming that desecrating the flag by wearing it was treasonous. A different generation failed to notice that black had been turned into white, a tactic perfected by Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels.
But the frog was cooking again.
Lately, these chefs impatient to destroy the Middle Class and democracy in their lifetimes have been turning up the heat too fast. The frog is catching on that it is being cooked. Sacrilege and blasphemy against Corporate Fascism are showing up inside the temples.
US Uncut imported from England shoves fascism back up their noses inside (gasp!) Banks themselves. And just recently, infidels invaded a supreme historical symbol of oppression, from Hitler’s Wagnerian Nazism to America’s Koch Fascism: the Opera!
While a Premiere Film was projected on the outside walls of New York’s Lincoln Center from a hotel window across the street over heads of a thousand in a gathered audience below, this bit of truth was pasted on a wall inside, to show all the world who our 21st Century Nazi enemies are.
You can see this magnificent short film that was projected on Lincoln Center, and hear sung one of the most incredible American Operas ever produced here at KochBlocked.com
As a lifelong media person, I must admit that tears of joy come each time I watch it.
And the Koch brainwashed bauble-headed tea party fake-patriot Armey marches on into oblivion, thoroughly conned into believing that they are actually in control of anything at all.
Please God, may I live long enough to see the collapse of Koch tea party Naziism in America, and the restoration of Your blessings of democracy to an again thriving Middle Class. By your Mercy, send all of Satan’s Sociopaths back tohell from whence they came.
BTW: one American pronunciation of the Koch family name is Coke. Another is ‘cook’, as in frogs.
