If there is one thing you can always count on in this life, it’s that liberals will always reveal their own hypocrisies if you give them enough rope. The ones with the biggest pocketbooks and the biggest mouths usually wind up being the biggest hypocrites.
Such is the case with the leader of American Bridge 21st Century, a liberal superPAC funded, in large part, by billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros. The Daily Caller did an exemplary job rounding up a series of tweets between American Bridge leader Brad Woodhouse and his critics. Woodhouse, when asked how his Soros-funded PAC was any different than the Koch Brothers using their billions to help Republican candidates, said that his donors were “not looking to screw the middle class to enrich themselves.”
Woodhouse is no different from millions of liberals who believe that being wealthy is a sin … unless the wealthy person in question valiantly supports lefty causes. Therefore, Bloomberg, Soros, Gates, and most Hollywood players are excused from the evils of their riches. Obama is excused. The Clintons are excused. Warren Buffet, obviously, is excused.
The Koch brothers, though, are a blight on the American landscape. They are a member of that wealthy elite that all those 99 percenters were out there complaining about, growing fetid in their tents while the people who actually make the country work tried to step around them. This, despite the fact that they have created more jobs than most rich liberals could ever dream of.
And what about this super PAC? American Bridge 21st Century is the brainchild of David Brock, one of the looniest of the lefty loons. His Media Matters website is dedicated to whining every time Rush Limbaugh says something offensive to minorities, serving perhaps the least-needed cause in America: watching the mainstream media for signs of conservative thought. It must be a part-time gig.
This is the same Media Matters that garnered some controversy a few years ago when a leaked memo exposed the lengths the site was willing to go to further their aims. In the memo, a Media Matters higher-up named Karl Frisch implored Brock and MM President Eric Burns to turn up the heat on Fox News.
“We must take Fox News head-on in a well-funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.” If that wasn’t enough, Frisch went on to suggest that Media Matters hire “private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff.”
These are the kinds of people behind American Bridge 21st Century. Vindictive, ruthless, and perfectly willing to resort to any means necessary to further their warped vision of America.
And about that comment Woodhouse made about the middle class. The latest financial figures on the heart of the U.S. economy show that the middle class has suffered a $3,000 average income decline since Obama’s election. Most of this decline has occurred since the official start of the recovery in 2009. If this is your idea of “helping” the middle class, we can only ask you to please stop.
