Charles Koch to support Hillary Clinton for President?
If there is one issue the left has been most hypocritical on over the years it is their claim that they are opposed to big money being spent to win elections. The left loves to talk about how Republican special interest groups steal elections from the people while ignoring their own special interest groups, such as unions and Planned Parenthood, which pour money into the elections.
But what draws the ire of the left even more than special interest groups are billionaires such as David and Charles Koch because they donate immense sums of money into the political coffers of Republicans. Of course while they are calling the Koch brothers evil and Satan and any other vile name they can come up with they ignore the political contributions of billionaires like, oh I don’t know, perhaps someone like George Soros. The reason for this is obvious; they are not opposed to big money being spent in politics but rather big money in politics being spent against them. That is why some billionaires get a free pass and others are the devil reincarnate.
Theleft will make the fallacy argument that they have to accept these donations because the Republican do, but that is nothing more than a chicken/egg argument, if they were serious they would attempt to lead the way by example.
And this is why I find this story to be fascinating.
It’s a nightmare scenario for Republicans, but conservative billionaire Charles Koch says “it’s possible” Hillary Clinton could make a better president than the remaining candidates in the GOP primary.
In his interview, Koch said that is a result of his disgust with the rhetoric in the Republican primary, and he even suggested Clinton could be a better choice for the country than the remaining crop of GOP candidates.
“It’s possible,” Koch said, but didn’t say whether he could see himself supporting Clinton in the 2016 cycle.
“We would have to believe her actions would be quite different than her rhetoric. Let me put it that way,” he said.
In my opinion the likelihood of Charles Koch donating money to Hillary Clinton in the campaign is highly questionable but you never know, after all he has also compared Donald Trump to Nazi Germany and that is rhetoric which has been uttered from the mouths of the left for several months now. He is beginning to sound like a full-fledged Democrat so who knows…
I think it is more likely that Charles Koch is sending a shape up or ship out message to the Republican party and if he does anything it will be to do nothing. In other words he will not donate money to either party in the election but rather he will sit it out on the donation side of the election.
To be honest I hope that Charles Koch does decide to donate money to Hillary Clinton’s campaign because it will be interesting to see how the Democratic voters respond, but more interesting to me will be to see how Hillary Clinton herself responds. Will Hillary Clinton accept the donations and if she does will the Democratic voters demand she return the donations?
To accept money from one of the Koch brothers after years of deriding the billionaires will expose the left as hypocrites. Of course by accepting money from George Soros while attacking the Koch brothers they should have already been exposed as hypocrites but nobody has ever called them out on it.
But that could come to an end if Charles Koch does indeed contribute to Hillary Clinton’s campaign because if, and this is a big if, it expands beyond the Koch brothers and the media does its job for once than somebody (maybe a supporter of Bernie Sanders) will have to ask the next logical question and that is, if accepting money from one billionaire is wrong how can accepting money from another billionaire be right?
