According to the left’s thought leaders like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, billionaires are the most evil people in the world. Yet now, liberal strategist David Brock is putting together a bunch of rich liberals to combat Trump. They even say they’re trying to be like the Koch brothers. Wasn’t that a bad thing like just yesterday?
NY Mag reports:
David Brock Is Ready to Monetize the Resistance
David Brock has decided to lead the part of the #Resistance that involves throwing parties for tech billionaires. Next week, while Donald Trump makes himself at home in the White House, the Clinton hit man turned ally will gather 120 top Democratic donors at Miami’s Turnberry Isle resort for three days of panels, strategy sessions, and not-ready-for-TED talks — all aimed at establishing a liberal version of the Koch brothers’ vast political network.
The summit is intended to mirror the one the billionaire oilmen held in January 2009, when all the pundits were pretty sure that America would never elect a charismatic but incompetent conservative again.
“We really aspire to be like the Kochs,” Brock told BuzzFeed’s Ruby Cramer, who broke the news of his Democracy Matters 17 conference.
Brock acknowledges that there already is a network of liberal megarich people who imagine themselves as a countervailing force to the Kochs called the Democracy Alliance. But, per Brock, Democracy Matters is different in one key way.
Will anyone in the media ask Bernie or Ms. Warren for comment on this?
Don’t count on it.
