Raw Story - Koch-Backed Lobbying Group Is Spreading Ammon Bundy’s Lies — Misspellings and All
Oh no, it looks like some big money maybe being used to spread the Bundy Loser Posse’s lies. The American Lands Council doesn’t do a good of checking their facts. Than again, since when have the Koch Brothers cared more about the truth than their free market absolutist ideology? Travis Gettys reports.
A Koch-funded lobbying group is helping Ammon Bundy, the jailed Oregon militant leader, spread misleading information about federal land management agencies.
The American Lands Council, which promotes legislation that would give states and individuals control of federally owned land, posted a video on Facebook accusing the Bureau of Land Management of deliberately starting fires and allowing them to burn out of control.
The ALC video was ripped off from a misleading and “heavily edited propaganda video” that Bundy produced in December, reported columnist Paul Rolly, of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Rolly said the videos were so similar that the ALC’s text repeated the same spelling errors made by Bundy, among 16 militants indicted last week in federal court in connection with the ongoing takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Preserve.
