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

Did Charles actually use the term "business activities"? Because if he restricted himself to business activities there wouldn't be a problem. It's his political activities, his toxic super-pacs, his plotting against American democracy, his corruption of the system and environment that eared him his sith badge...SORRY CHARLEY, not much sympathy for you here. Try making it without your billions in the real world before you decide you're in love with oligarchy. That goes for your brother too.

These people have good reason to live in fear. The house of cards they have constructed will begin to fall and it is a long way down from that height. Reminds me of the Bob Dylan song "Like a Rolling Stone".

As an aside: Don't you think one of the Koch brothers looks like it might be Stephen Colbert's father? Hmmm. I wonder just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

The Koch brothers are old and will soon be dead and maybe their corrupt ways will be buried with them. We have this corrupt jerk named Scot Walker for governor in Wisconsin thats going to be thrown out of office this summer for all the lies and corruption he is involved with and his good buddies the Koch brothers. They are scumbags!!! and are on the way out of public service along with the Lt Gov. and a few republican rats. They don't like unions but they unionize themselves with the rich to destroy the middle class in this country.

The ROI on evil investment falls off rapidly after about 97% pure evil.

Massive investment in evil R&D, has shown that the perfect percentage is 94%, as it allows for adding further evil leverage in times when the forces of good threaten to gain the upper hand.

This allows them to spend even more in Wisconsin and other States threatening to go rogue and throw off the shackles of evil.

hahahaha yeah I remember when Martin Luther King used his billions of dollars to create super pacs that spread lies and helped put people in power that denied workers' rights.

What a joke this man is. He's good at one thing: making a lot of money, and I'm sure he's probably an asshole when it comes to that too.

Think it will be a good fit with his apparent delusion of Grandeur (?) You know, him developing a persecution complex? Think he'll get really wiggy?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

LOL. Maybe. I doubt that he will really freak out. He is too much of a manipulator for that.

I don't know.

I think a lot of the grandeur stricken and the corrupt are going to be doing a lot more sweating about the small/trivial things like the abused public, as time goes by.

Talk about food to feed an oligarchs worry's.
