Obama Unleashes Leftist Dogs Against Koch Brothers – Now They’re Receiving Hundreds of Death Threats

Barack Obama started the new year with an attack ad targeting the Koch brothers.

Gothamist reported:

Days after the Koch brothers’-funded PAC released an ad critical of President Obama and Solyndra, Obama’s re-election campaign has released its first TV ad to fight back.

As The Caucus reports, “The Obama campaign responded hastily. It placed orders for television time on Wednesday, telling broadcast stations that it wanted the advertising on the air immediately. Typically, stations require more than a day’s notice.”

A voiceover says, “Secretive oil billionaires attacking President Obama with ads fact checkers say are not tethered to the facts”—a reference to the billionaire, Tea Party-loving Koch brothers who have funded the PAC Americans for Prosperity. The ad mentions how Obama has created 2.7 million clean energy jobs, reduced dependence on foreign oil and says his record on ethics is “unprecedented,” ending with, “President Obama. Kept his promise to toughen ethics rules and strengthen America’s energy economy.”

Recently a spokesman for Koch industries responded to the latest attacks on the wealthy brothers.

“We will exercise our First Amendment rights and not be intimidated or silenced by the President’s aides and his allies who criticize private citizens that disagree with the President’s policies.”

It’s not the first time the Obama administration has attacked the Koch brothers. In fact Obama’s pursuit of the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers is has been compared to McCarthyism at its worst or Richard Nixon’s enemies list.

And Obama’s leftist army has responded in kind. The Koch brothers have received hundreds of threats of violence including death threats since Barack Obama declared war on the businessmen.
The Wichita Eagle reported, via Power Line:

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.

Of course, the fact that the left is hurling death threats against conservative business leaders surprises no one.

    Out them. Identify them, and publish their names along with their threats. This wouldn’t be hard to do. All it would take is a scanner and a website.

    Cross-referencing the list will be a hoot and a half.

    “Obama’s Enemies List: David and Charles Koch have been the targets of a campaign of vituperation and assault, choreographed from the very top.”

    As a libertarian, I’m a pretty big fan of the Koch brothers and the work they’ve done to advance the cause of liberty. I’ve worked for a couple of groups that receive funding from them, too. I’m aware that President Obama and the political strategists in the Democratic Party have centered their campaign against the Koch brothers. This didn’t please me, but I figured that they were more than able to handle it. But this op-ed shows why this campaign of assault is dangerous and should be widely condemned, no matter your personal politics.

    Olsen begins by asking how you would feel if you were singled out for attacks by the very president of the United States:

    What would you do if the White House engaged in derogatory speculative innuendo about the integrity of your tax returns? Suppose also that the president’s surrogates and allies in the media regularly attacked you, sullied your reputation and questioned your integrity. On top of all of that, what if a leading member of the president’s party in Congress demanded your appearance before a congressional committee this week so that you could be interrogated about the Keystone XL oil pipeline project in which you have repeatedly—and accurately—stated that you have no involvement?

    Obviously the Democratic focus groups and strategists believe that targeting a couple of Americans is a great way to make political gains. But it’s worth pondering the crime the Kochs have committed:

    What Messrs. Koch do, in fact, is manage businesses that provide employment to more than 50,000 people in North America in legitimate, productive industries. They also give millions of dollars to medical researchers, hospitals and cultural institutions. Their biggest offense, apparently, is that they also contribute generously to nonprofit organizations that promote personal liberty and free enterprise, and some of those organizations oppose policies advocated by the president.

    When Richard Nixon’s enemies list — which singled out citizens for IRS investigations and other abuses of public power — was revealed, the media were outraged. Rightly so. Olsen also points out that the Constitution explicitly prohibits bills of attainder so that Congress may not single out groups for unequal application of governmental force. The use of state power to oppress and intimidate private citizens should be condemned as an abuse of authority and unfitting for a country under the rule of law.

    Whoever may be the victim of such abuse of governmental authority, the press and public almost invariably unify with indignation against it. If a journalist, labor-union leader or community organizer on the left can be targeted today, an academic or business person on the right can be the target tomorrow. If we fail to stand up against oppression from one direction, we abdicate the moral authority to challenge it when it comes from another.

    This is why it is exceedingly important for all Americans to respond with outrage to what the president and his allies are doing to demonize and stigmatize David and Charles Koch. They have been the targets of the multiyear, carefully orchestrated campaign of vituperation and assault described above—and much more. It has been choreographed from the very top. When the president personally takes leadership, his political surrogates and army of allies in the press and Congress quickly and surely follow the direction and tone he sets.

    Using government power to target political enemies is wrong, no matter which direction it comes from. I get that the Democratic Party thinks this is a political winner. But they should have the decency to renounce, condemn and reject such targeting of private individuals on principle.

    Nixon’s lists were secret. Obama is telegraphing his list in his very public rhetoric, the actions of the administration and the oversight of Congress. We’d be up in arms if this were happening to a lowly plumber or single mother who dared speak out against governmental policies. We should be just as ready to defend the reputation and rights of those who provide employment and charity throughout the country.

    Obama administration is making a spectacle of themselves.

    Republican supporters led by secretive oil billionaires the Koch brothers have pledged to oust Barack Obama from power – by stumping up a $100million (£63million) war-chest.

    David and Charles Koch, worth a combined $50billion, have been joined by 300 of America’s wealthiest businessmen in promising the cash to stop Obama from being re-elected.

    They met at the conservative brothers’ annual three-day Californian retreat, where they gain pledges for non-profit groups that share their libertarian world view.

    Secretive? No secret the Koch Brothers want to oust the sham of a president. So, sad that Obama has to have others fight his battles. Poor politics and sad really, Obama has others to slain the giant.

    Inside Media Matters

    his is the first in a Daily Caller investigative series on Media Matters For America. Daily Caller reporters Alex Pappas and Will Rahn contributed to this report.

    David Brock was smoking a cigarette on the roof of his Washington, D.C. office one day in the late fall of 2010 when his assistant and two bodyguards suddenly appeared and whisked him and his colleague Eric Burns down the stairs.

    Brock, the head of the liberal nonprofit Media Matters for America, had told friends and co-workers that he feared he was in imminent danger from right-wing assassins and needed a security team to keep him safe.

    The threat he faced while smoking on his roof? “Snipers,” a former co-worker recalled.

    “He had more security than a Third World dictator,” one employee said, explaining that Brock’s bodyguards would rarely leave his side, even accompanying him to his home in an affluent Washington neighborhood each night where they “stood post” to protect him. “What movement leader has a detail?” asked someone who saw it.

    Extensive interviews with a number of Brock’s current and former colleagues at Media Matters, as well as with leaders from across the spectrum of Democratic politics, reveal an organization roiled by its leader’s volatile and erratic behavior and struggles with mental illness, and an office where Brock’s executive assistant carried a handgun to public events in order to defend his boss from unseen threats.
    Ads by Google

    Yet those same interviews, as well as a detailed organizational planning memo obtained by The Daily Caller, also suggest that Media Matters has to a great extent achieved its central goal of influencing the national media.

    Founded by Brock in 2004 as a liberal counterweight to “conservative misinformation” in the press, Media Matters has in less than a decade become a powerful player in Democratic politics. The group operates in regular coordination with the highest levels of the Obama White House, as well as with members of Congress and progressive groups around the country. Brock, who collected over $250,000 in salary from Media Matters in 2010, has himself become a major fundraiser on the left. According to an internal memo obtained by TheDC, Media Matters intends to spend nearly $20 million in 2012 to influence news coverage.

    Donors have every reason to expect success, as the group’s effect on many news organizations has already been profound. “We were pretty much writing their prime time,” a former Media Matters employee said of the cable channel MSNBC. “But then virtually all the mainstream media was using our stuff.”

    The group scored its first significant public coup in 2007 with the firing of host Don Imus from MSNBC. Just before Easter that year, a Media Matters employee recorded Imus’s now-famous attack on the Rutgers women’s basketball team, and immediately recognized its inflammatory potential. The organization swung into action, notifying organizations like the NAACP, the National Association of Black Journalists, and Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, all of which joined the fight.

    Over the course of a week, Media Matters mobilized more than 50 people to work full-time adding fuel to the Imus story. Researchers searched the massive Media Matters database for controversial statements Imus had made over the years. The group issued press release after press release. Brock personally called the heads of various liberal activist groups to coordinate a message. By the end of the week, Imus was fired.

    Now this is what was once secret but thanks to Tucker Carlson it is over and the secret is out. But we knew Media Matter was a progressive website. And remember that meeting with MSNBC now wasn’t that thuggery to the max. Now, Obama is trying to pull the rabbit out of the hat with more disgusting attacks on Koch Brothers. Talk about grasping at straws. Obama will learn his lesson one of these days. And these poll numbers, who the h are they fooling.

    best news i’ve heard since the start of this farcical
    presidential race, just hoping they back Gingrich..


  • Obama’s supporters would have us believe that he waded through the cesspool that is Chicago politics without a spot on him. The worst aspect is that they are probably just that naive and an easy mark for such a hustler.

  • Valerie is on the right track. I suppose it’s too much to ask that our law enforcement agencies would take death threats seriously, and would work to identify, arrest and prosecute those who email death threats against private individuals (any individual, not just the Koch brothers; it’s just as wrong to email a death threat to Michael Moore).

    But if law enforcement won’t do it, a web site, a scanner, etc., seems like a reasonable response. Let people own publicly their privately-emailed viciousness.

    Michelle Malkin actually wrote books about this; she filled the books with the various threats and vicious attacks made by mouth-breathing leftist punks.

    It’s time to expose these folks openly. They want to attack? Turn it around. Do it with humor (the left hates that) and panache. But do it so that their words are tied explicitly to them, and open for all to see.

    Media Matters

    Explosive Tell-All Investigation Has Media Matters Insiders Ratting Out Organization To Daily Caller – – Chief David Brock Revealed To Be Paranoid Schizophrenic With Bad Cocaine Habit – – MSNBC Prime-Time Shows Mostly Written By MMFA – – White House Illegally Employs MMFA As Political Advocacy Division:

    This said: Now death threats and if Obama has anything to do with this, impeachment. But no one seems to care. Pundits, Papers, Web, T.V. full of chickens and just can seem to bring themselves to speak the truth. We are really in a big hurt when no one but for only a few can’t call this administration out for what it is.

    Death threats?

  • Patty

    The situation in Washington has really been bad but things like this are against the law. Many of things that have happen in Washington seem to be against the laws of our nation.

    Someone wants to kill another person and what is happening. Really, how can this been on this site and not in the News repeated over and over again.

    The person or persons who are making these threats need to be investigated by the FBI just like any other Terrorists. Seems that the meaning of breaking the law means nothing to the army in Obama administration.

    I will not go further but I will say that Death Threats for standing up for your beliefs, whether or not the coincide with your opinions or not, never warrants this sort of language.

    Unless you are severely emotionally and mentally imbalanced. Now, if there is any evidence that Obama has something to do with this, the Congress should call Obama for conference.

    I mean this. Death Threats are not to ever be taken lightly, no matter what side of the aisle they are coming from. I would say the same thing if right spoke these words.

  • Patty

    The left has tried so desperately to attack the right that thanks to some real journalists, like Carlson and Breitbart the truth is coming out but will enough voters listen this time.

    Just think a president who is not Obama.

  • Sparky

    Obama does this because HE CAN ad he knows Americans will not fight back.

    The problem is that people must get some of the cojones te Koch Brothers have and stand ground against Obama….who is really a chicken.

    good, glad you like that one.

    I have never in my lifetime seen a presidency quite like this one. I just can’t stop shaking my head. They just gave 7 islands to Russian in Alaska area.

    Fast and Furious, Contraceptives, Hate spewing from Waters evil mouth. Death Threats, Gitmo prisoner release, Nuclear and Military reductions. On and On every day the hatred coming from the left and the leader is Obama. Yet, approval ratings at 50% that happen overnight and Rush is right. He said this would happen 6 weeks ago.

    Since taking office Obama has declared war in some form or another against Beck, Fox NEWS, Americans for a secure border, the Catholic Church and people of faith, Gibson Guitar, the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, the traveling public, the Tea Party, Wall Street, the Flag, and white America.
    He has however ran from Iraq and Afghanistan, is making secret deals with al Qaeda, Russia, and China. And as we speak forcing huge restrictions on our Defenses, as announced this week the military Drawdown is now forcing, Forced retirements, slackers booted, tougher re-enlisting standards, MOS (military occupation specialty) quotas and switch MOS or get out. Three, five tours in combat and now our hero’s are treated as slackers all the while Obama awards those who come here illegally to all the rights of citizenship, and awards all the welfare whores with greater awards.

  • Patty

    It is all about Capitalism. Those who work hard are under attack. We all have the opportunities to succeed and if we chose we too can be a success in life. Those who have earned their money with hard work are in many cases the reason this nation is still on its feet. Under Obama there would be even a worse collapse of our economy if he keeps insisting that they give more money to those who don’t even pay a penny in taxes.

    Success has always been the foundation this nation was built on but since Obama for what ever reason it is under attack and that is why Americans should be furious. Spreading the Wealth will be even worse if Obama is elected. And under secrecy was Obama care and the 7 Islands given to Russians from Alaska.

    Greater secrets that have presented themselves was Fast and Furious and even Obama care. We are enlightened by Inside Media Matters and all the visits that MSNBC and unions have had with Obama. We can see that a fight for our nation is coming and I can only hope that this gets out there and the voters will listen.

    They also should have added:

    Victim Impact Statement Underwear Bomber deliberately let aboard plane.
    by Kurt Haskell
    It makes me wonder what else we’ve been lied to about. Who Obama really is maybe? I’ve believed from the beginning that the mentally disturbed man in AZ was recruited and used by this government, to murder that judge, shoot Gabrielle Giffords, and blame Sarah Palin and the Tea Party. It all seemed choreographed, with Dupnik, the media, the stupid ribbons, the calls of civility, the sitting together in Congress, etc.

    I wonder about Oklahoma City, and the governments involvement in it. Call me crazy, but I’m even getting uncomfortable feelings about 9/11. Did they purposely let them on the planes too? We’re they willing to murder thousands to implement policies of control? Hitler did it, Stalin did it, Mao did it, why couldn’t it happen here? I don’t think Bush was involved, but I think many former Clinton people were still there. I think we’re living in East Germany. There’s no one in this Federal Government who is honest. It’s those lying and those not speaking up. Dear God, we’re not safe.

    I may buy a gun when we move to Virginia in a couple of months. I’m going to find a good place and learn to shoot it. I don’t feel safe anymore.

    American Standard Version-John8:44
    “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.”

    The shadow of Lenin is certainly in the WH. It seems now that people who support the opposition or even withhold support of the left (Komen) are attacked and demonized by a morally bankrupt left who cannot tolerate dissent or challenges to their power. This country is no longer looking like a free country but an increasingly hostile and totalitarian regime. Meanwhile Obama has an army of useful and ignorant idiots who are willing to sacrifice someone else’s freedom for the continued rule of the left-wing elite.

    1. Death threats are a felony. They have no place in our public discourse.
    2. The only people that harass others for political activity as you describe it, are Democrats.
    3. Most crime waves are not really generalized activity. They are the product of repeated activity by a small group. There is a possibility that merely identifying a few bad actors will cause a lot of misbehavior to evaporate.
    4. If exposure puts an end to the bad behavior, there will be no need for expensive prosecutions.
