Fish Wrap Offers Pre-Halloween Story About Scary Secretive GOP Donors

Be frightened, very frightened, those evil men in the background are meeting. Mwahahahahahahahhahahahahaha!

A secretive network of Republican donors is heading to the Palm Springs area for a long weekend in January, but it will not be to relax after a hard-fought election – it will be to plan for the next one.

Obviously, not so secret if the Times knows about it.

Koch Industries, the longtime underwriter of libertarian causes from the Cato Institute in Washington to the ballot initiative that would suspend California’s landmark law capping greenhouse gases, is planning a confidential meeting at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa to, as an invitation says, “develop strategies to counter the most severe threats facing our free society and outline a vision of how we can foster a renewal of American free enterprise and prosperity.”

Oh, no, how mean, how evil, they are trying to……wait, renew American free enterprise and prosperity? Well, I guess from a Progressive/liberal/socialist/surrender monkey POV, that can be a scary story, told around the campfire with a pink flashlight (LED bulb only! Climate change, you know) by idiots in Che t-shirts.

Of course, much of the article is about those scary Koch brothers, who have become some sort of boogeymen to the Progressives

The Koch network meets twice a year to plan and expand its efforts – as the letter says, “to review strategies for combating the multitude of public policies that threaten to destroy America as we know it.”

Again, I can understand why attempting to keep long held America beliefs can be scary to Progressives, who want to fundamentally change America into…..Greece.

The goals for the twice-yearly meetings, the brochure says, include attracting more investors to the cause, but also building institutions “to identify, educate and mobilize citizens” and “fashioning the message and building the education channels to re-establish widespread belief in the benefits of a free and prosperous society.”

I’m surprised the article writer, Kate Zernike, was able to get through writing that paragraph. Like most liberals, she probably wanted to dive under the covers like a child who notices the closet door is open just a little bit, and “is it slowly opening?” MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deutschland Deja Vu: The Baader Meinhof Complex

Watching The Baader Meinhof Complex’s titular Teutonic terrorist gang in action on the small screen, I was struck by déjà vu of it all. A small but growing band of radicals with a penchant for street theater, wishing to smash capitalism and destroy the system from within, led by a fanatical, brawling leader, with at least one articulate well-bred intellectual within the inner circle. Starting off by blowing up small, bourgeois shops. Eventually hooking up with sympathetic allies in the Middle East. Then killing American soldiers. And when finally cornered, going out in a Gotterdammerung of mass suicide rather than face punishment from their captors. That’s never happened in Germany before
