Koch protesters call for hanging of Clarence Thomas

I agree with the Hot Air analysis: Yes, these comments come from the attendees, not the speakers at the protest organized by Common Cause at the Koch political conference, but according to the media rules on covering the Tea Party, that makes all liberals racists, and also responsible for the murders committed by Kermit Gosnell in his abortion clinic in Philadelphia. Right?

This is a Palm Springs event called “Uncloaking the Kochs” hosted by Common Cause. Among Common Cause’s, well, common causes, are campaign finance reform, net neutrality, outlawing the filibuster, promoting cap and trade, and in this particular case, herding a mass of protesters outside a nearby hotel to yell at Charles and David Koch for being conservative and rich.

There was eerily no mention of GE, AEP, Goldmann Sachs, Pfizer, Aetna, Alcoa, Xerox, Google, Motorola, IBM, or several other corporate giants who profit at taxpayer expense via their K Street connections to the Obama White House as well as the very economic and regulatory policies they lobby that these Common Cause panelists commonly endorse. But I’m sure that’s only because no one wanted to point out the obvious. Right?

“The purpose of this conference is to discuss solutions to our most pressing issues and strategies to promote policies that will help grow our economy, foster free enterprise and create American jobs,” Nancy Pfotenhauer, a spokeswoman for Koch Industries, said in a statement about the event.

Did I miss the protest outside of the Rockefeller Foundation meeting? You don’t remember either. That was a meeting of the uber wealthy…well, discussing “solutions to our most pressing issues and strategies to promote policies that will help grow our economy, foster free enterprise and create American jobs”

The L.A. Times describes this earlier protest as “orderly” and says it ended “after the arrest of 25 people for trespassing.” So, basically, it was very orderly, except for all the trespassing. A considerably less “orderly” event called “Uncloak Koch” was later held in Palm Springs, organized by liberal activist group Common Cause, which is funded by… wait for it… George Soros, among others. The event included banners reading “QUARANTINE KOCH,” decorated with biohazard symbols, which just doesn’t seem very tolerant or inclusive to me.
