In a rare interview with the Wichita Eagle, billionaire sith lord Charles Koch complained about how mean everyone is being now that much of the country is aware of his family business's activities. “We are under attack from various directions, both with threats of violence against us personally, and with threats of attacks on our businesses,” Koch said. He then compared himself to the icon of the Protestant Revolution: "I kind of relate to what Martin Luther said (when Luther took on the established church and launched the Protestant Reformation): 'Here I stand; I can do no other,' " which presumably refers to the way Luther famously used his billions of dollars to bend the Catholic Church to his will. What prompted the preemptive PR piece was an "Occupy Koch Town" march that took place yesterday. A spokeswoman for Koch Industries claimed that the many of the protesters would be bussed in from Occupy Oakland, implying that an orgy of destruction may ensue against the brothers' property. Instead, the march featured around 150 protesters, and was peaceful. "There is one person from South Dakota," an organizer with the Sierra Club said. http://gothamist.com/2012/02/19/koch_brother_cries_about_threats_de.php
