In the last 10 minutes, courtesy of Facebook pals, I learned that the Koch Bros. are responsible for school segregation and the John Birch Society. Really, people, there are a lot of reactionaries, many of them with money, in this country. If only it were just two bad dudes.
What bothers me is this single-minded obsession that’s taken over a bunch of the left. Their kind of politics has a long history in the U.S.
Yeah, some lefties apparently are gobsmacked to discover that wealthy right-wingers can have political agendas. But this has been going on for decades, the anti-communist witchhunts of the 1950’s being an obvious example.
