Koch Industries Forcing Employees To Vote For Teabaggers

News

Evil muppet billionaires David and Charles Koch own the Koch Industries megacorporation, and most of the employees of that conglomerate got written instructions from the Koch Bros. listing the candidates and measures to vote for. That's illegal! Put the Koch Brothers in prison for CRIMES against AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, quick, before they hobble away slowly! Here is whatThe Nation found out: "On the eve of the November midterm elections, Koch Industries sent an urgent letter to most of its 50,000 employees advising them on whom to vote for and warning them about the dire consequences to their families, their jobs and their country should they choose to vote otherwise." Wow, so what happened to the Koch Industries' employees who didn't vote for the Republican/Tea Party slate? Were their families tortured?


The workers also got an exciting free issue of the Koch Brothers' political newsletter, "full of alarmist right-wing propaganda."

But wait, guess what? It's not illegal anymore, to do this. Thanks to the current right-wing Supreme Court, it's totally okay to twist your employees' arms and make them vote for the interests of billionaires:

Legal experts interviewed for this story called the blatant corporate politicking highly unusual, although no longer skirting the edge of legality, thanks to last year’s Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which granted free speech rights to corporations.

Huzzah! You can go about your way, Koch Brothers. After all, you bought that Supreme Court! [The Nation]

On Monday, Gloria Vanderbilt -- socialite, jeans lady, and mom of Anderson Cooper -- passed away at the age of 95. In more normal times, this would merely result in a few obituaries and tributes about her life, and the requisite few RIP tweets.

Unfortunately, we do not live in normal times. These days, no celebrity can die without it becoming the purview of the crazypants QAnon cult, followers of which believe that no one ever dies under normal circumstances, especially not 95-year-old ladies.

Vanderbilt and her family were already something of an obsession with these people due to several "Q proofs" accusing her of doing magic spells, wearing magic illuminati owl necklaces, and [checks notes] doing something involving "red shoes," which the QAnon people think people only wear if they love sacrificing children to Satan.

Yes, this is a thing. No, I do not know if they are also mad at Elvis Costello.
