Prior to 2009, maybe 2010, very few Americans had ever heard of the billionaire oil magnates the Koch brothers; likely by very careful design. Today, their name is synonymous with wealthy fascists attempting to rule America. It is that repute that Charles Koch has spent the past year attempting to transform into something more palatable and he continued the please love me campaign this week by opining on the state of the current presidential primary; rather, the dysfunction of the Republican presidential primary. The Democratic primary, and its candidates for president, are polar opposites of Charles and David Kochs Republican operatives if for no other reason than they are civil and substantive.

..

In a Wall Street Journal profile of and interview with Charles Koch, the oil magnate and libertarian fascist weighed in on the tenor of the Republican presidential primary and, more revealing, about the nature of political discourse in general. What is revealing is Koch lamenting that there is no sense of civility, substance, or issues driving the Republican candidates or the GOPs primary process. Koch bemoaned that, Its mainly about personalities and your mother sucked rotten eggs.'

..

It is not that Koch is wrong about the Republican primary race, but he does know that every single one of the personalities, every lack of civil discourse, and every Republican void of substance are Koch creations going back farther than the rise of one of the brothers crowning achievement; creating the Tea Party. Today Koch is frustrated because he, his brother, and about 450 wealthy donors plan to use Kochs network of umbrella organizations to spend $750 million on the 2016 election to buy the right dictate all political outcomes via dark money. Koch expects results for his investment, but it likely looks out of reach to him with the current batch of personalities lacking any substance and civility.

..

The Koch brothers have no right whatsoever to complain about the tone of Republican politics because it is exactly what they paid for and wanted. Todays Republicans have driven Washington politics to Cro-Magnon barbarianism because the process is polluted and flooded with Koch money and propaganda that elevated rabid right-wingers who have coarsened the discourse and made compromise impossible. It is important to note that one of the primary goals of the libertarian fascist Kochs is putting an end to government and they have spent no small amount of time and money to see that end reach fruition.

..

The Kochs may have made their official public entrance into politics after the 2008 general election, but they began their anti-government crusade over thirty years ago; about the same time Reagans government is the enemy campaign was off and running. Whether the Kochs conspired with conservative demigod Reagans anti-government crusade or not is not important, what is important is that they have used every means at their substantial disposal to advance the agenda including spending millions on Republicans without an ounce of substance or civility because it has worked miraculously well; likely because the Republican base is ignorant and uncivil.

..

All of the lack of substance and civility that Koch is complaining about began in earnest with the rise of the Tea Party packed with real Americans lacking substance and civility. That the tea party became a centralized movement is only because of a very concerted effort by Koch-funded groups such as Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works that brought much-needed expertise to mobilize angry, racist, religious, and anti-government types Koch is pretending to be disgusted with. As an aside and to demonstrate how long the anti-government Kochs have been influencing Republican politics, both Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks were at one time a single libertarian organization, Citizens for a Sound Economy, which the Koch brothers founded during the Reagan administration in 1984.
