The Billionaire’s Party
David Koch is New York’s second-richest man, a celebrated patron of the arts, and the tea party’s wallet.
This profile of David Koch by New York Magazine is getting play in today’s left-o-sphere, and for good reason.
As the article highlights, the Koch’s have funded a non-trivial amount of the right-wing rage machine, the AGW denial machine, etc.
The information in the profile is not new - the Koch family has been well investigated in the past and copious information is available online.
Yet it is good to be reminded that the ideological slant of the Tea Parties and the right-wing machine do benefit those who find it in their financial interests, such as the Kochs, to fund many of the atavists’ activities.
