As we have chronicled with the “Great Moments in Civil Discourse” posts, regressives have a glaring double standard in which the the most innocent and inane comments made by Conservatives are filled with racism and “hate.” On the other hand, regressives are apparently cleared to call for violent revolution, engage in thug tactics against men, women, and children, and make death threats. For the latest example, we need to take a look at some interesting emails received by Koch industries, via Powerline.
On Thursday, Charles Koch authorized employees of Koch Industries to reveal the contents of “hundreds of e-mails that the Kochs and employees have received in the last year, some of them containing death threats.” The Wichita Eagle, Koch Industries’ home-town newspaper, reported:
Charles Koch, his brother and employees have in recent months been getting death threats, hundreds of obscenity-laced hate messages, and harassment from some far left-wing groups, Koch said on Thursday. …
“I hope you all DIE,” one e-mail, received last year, said. “You people are ruining our country, and all for $$$.” “Choose your expiration Date, Brothers…” said another. “The Koch brothers will DIE!!!!!” said another.
There were hundreds more — some from Wisconsin, where the Kochs were accused of aiding Gov. Scott Walker in his disputes against unions. Most of them were signed with what appear to be real names, many contained obscenities, and some Koch employees said these messages had made them nervous. …
There is more over at Powerline, so I’d encourage you to check it out.
When we look at the regressives, we see what they say and do. At the same time, we know what the Tea Parties have said and done. One side has thousands of arrests, millions of dollars in damages (and costs to municipalities), rapes, murders, drug overdoses, violence to people trying to record their activities (in public places), and a variety of other felonies and misdemeanors. However, when one looks at the MSM coverage, you’d think that the peaceful Tea Parties were the second coming of National Socialism. At the same time, the violent, anti-Semitic, and openly communist # Occupy movement is portrayed as a mainstream populist movement.
So, while this post will likely be derided as racist and hateful, the people threatening to kill the Koch brothers are given a pass, or perhaps even applauded.
Isn’t it great to live in a “post-reality” America?
