Were the two largest from Donald Sterling?

I gave some homeless dude three quarters yesterday...that was  a much greater financial sacrifice on my part.

Good job though, Kochs, ya done good.

So that makes all that stuff about them trying to take over Democracy and pervert our elections okay now, right?

No negative intent intended?

It's hard to say what makes billionaires tick, not being one myself. It looks pretty evident to me that a lot of his money goes toward destroying our government, weakening environmental protection and any other pesky protections for us against the billionaires. After that, I don't really give a sh*t toward what conspicuous politically correct cause he chucks his pocket change. The Koch boys are never going to redeem themselves in this lifetime.

Well, in that case, it's all good. Carry on subverting democracy, Kochs.

Hmmmmm ...

I can't find a "the negro community approves of these shenanigans" pic.

Came to say basically the same thing. Carry on, Sir!

However, they stipulated their money should only be given to "the good ones".
 
2014-06-08 08:03:10 AM  
See? Some of my best donations are black.
 
2014-06-08 08:09:27 AM  
They're still assholes.
 
2014-06-08 08:22:24 AM  
You know what would be even better? If they stopped lobbying against worker protections, the environment, and a fair tax policy. So people could pay for their own education.
 
2014-06-08 08:26:29 AM  
They should donate an apostrophe to the Subby's organization.
 
2014-06-08 08:27:12 AM  
Good for them. Still doesn't excuse their dedication to unraveling American democracy in the name of making a few extra bucks.
 
2014-06-08 08:29:56 AM  
Why do the Kochs hate white, asian and latino people?
 
2014-06-08 08:30:32 AM  
Wow! A gift of approximately one-quarter of one percent of their combined net worth! Impressive!
 
2014-06-08 08:34:21 AM  
The do a lot of philanthropy work no one is upset about that

it's all so people can't point to it and say ,,"see just because he doesn't want them to vote and wants them all in prison or working for slave wages doesn't mean he's a racist.

They gave NPR money, and they became Nice Polite Republicans.

Andrew Carnegie was a patron of the arts. It didn't make him any less of a brutal anti-worker, union-busting robber baron.

NPR is the classiest whore on the airwaves. It's not trashy, but it's been fueled by oil and agribusiness for decades.

Doesn't mean it's a bad outlet, but it's hands aren't exactly Purell-clean.

despite that they will run stuff against Monsanto and the oil companies on Frontline,Nova etc.
 
2014-06-08 08:49:55 AM  
Maybe they misheard the name and thought they were donating to the Ignited Negro College Fund?
 
2014-06-08 08:51:54 AM  
They had them at "colored people".

Seriously, a tax deduction is a tax deduction.
 
2014-06-08 08:52:14 AM  
It's just because they like the word "Negro."
 
2014-06-08 08:57:09 AM  
Let me tell you about the United Negro College Fund.
 
2014-06-08 08:59:26 AM  
They understand they're not buying them, right?
 
2014-06-08 09:00:40 AM  
Sometimes, when you're complete arseholes, it takes a small investment in reputation management.  From time to time. It really works if you're rich enough to instill fear.  This gives all your apologists a hook to hang their hat on whilst defending you from justified attacks on all your other subversive activities.

I just checked and the Koch Brothers still look, sound, and smell like arseholes.  So, I'll stick with calling them arseholes.
 
2014-06-08 09:00:42 AM  
I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro college fund.  Because they are basically on philanthropic subsidy, now what do they do?  They take donations from the Koch brothers.  And I've often wondered, are they better off without money?

Someone needs to tell these guys that trying to buy votes makes them look like douchelords.
 
2014-06-08 09:13:04 AM  
There was a piece on NPR that explained one of there contribution in a college. It required to be spent on certain course s and they pick who teaches those courses. So, yeah.
 
2014-06-08 09:15:28 AM  
They thought it was the Untied Negro Collage Fund.  Supporting the arts, at least.
 
2014-06-08 09:19:25 AM  
Call me when they disband ALEC and stop buying politicians.

"Donated"... "bought the curriculum"... these are semantic nitpicks.  They're merely helping the simple negro along by telling him what to think while throwing money at him.  Which is something conservatives NEVER do.  They prefer "teach a man to fish" rather than just giving him things.  Colleges do teach and are breeding grounds for liberals, so by telling the negro what to think through moneyspeech given to colleges it makes the Koch boys Double Secret Liberals.

Basically, it means that YOU'RE the racist.

/points and laughs at you. You racist.
 
2014-06-08 09:23:22 AM  
$25 million to neutralize charges that you're racist?  That's propaganda funds well spent.

No one believes these guys give a pauper's ass about black people just because they gave away that week's caviar money.

So I wonder when the news about their family owning slaves will NOT break.

Yup, meanwhile thousands of folks are giving 1%+ of their income to the clean water fund and other organizations to fight their goal of increasing their wealth by decreasing environmental regs.

Just imagine if these guys weren't evil (ok, if they were so libertarian and profit focused) and the rest of us could use our extra cash on charities and not political organizations.

Or, they could have created 1,000 jobs at $12.50/hr.

But hey, the "job creators" work in mysterious ways...

So your point is that liberal donors outnumber conservative donors 10-to-1?
