Today, Bradblog’s Brad Friedman reports for Mother Jones about a secret meeting that the right-wing oil billionaire Koch brothers held at a Colorado resort in June with hundreds of wealthy donors who plotted to finance right-wing causes and elect conservative politicians.
Friedman reports that audio he obtained from the conference reveals that Charles Koch alarmingly referred to President Obama as “Saddam Hussein,” saying that the right had to fight the “mother of all wars.” He rallied his guests to donate millions of dollars to help defeat Obama and boost other right-wing causes. Listen to audio of these remarks obtained by Friedman:
Honestly, I could give a shit less how much money Charles and David Koch have or how Christian they consider themselves. I view them as evil men who are at war with Democracy and with working Americans. They deserve neither respect or deference. They are the modern day Benedict Arnolds and they had better realize one thing -- they may have all of the money, but "We The People" have the numbers. And there endeth the lesson.
