Because that’s the endgame.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday accused Republicans of holding up crucial assistance to Ukraine in order to protect the Koch brothers.
Reid tied the billionaire brothers who have bankrolled conservative causes to GOP demands that language delaying the Internal Revenue Service’s regulation of non-profit political advocacy groups be added to the Ukraine package.
That’s where conspiracy theorists always end up. Eventually, they just come out and say It’s all because of the Jooooooos and then we have to kind of… shuffle the sufferer over to the fringes of polite society. It’s really a tragedy when it happens, of course. Even the most miserable human being is a child of God.
Yes, even Harry Reid. I don’t enjoy watching people slip into dementia, sorry.
PS: As somebody or other noted recently, trying to make the Koch brothers into the face of this supposed libertarian conspiracy to take over the world so that they can leave you the hell alone is pretty freaking surreal. Not least because, as conspiracies go, that one doesn’t sound half bad.
