And watch this:
It was a highlight of our week here at Pundit Planet.
KELLY: Charles Koch, thank you.
KOCH: Well, thank you, Megyn. I appreciate it.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
KELLY: Getting lots of feedback online with Charles Koch, like this one, quote, “Such a disappointing lack of evilness! Imagine that.”
Thanks for watching. This is “The Kelly File.”
Do the Koch brothers have critics with legitimate complaints? Interests groups that object to the various causes the Koch brothers, with their considerable resources, advocate? Of course they do. But perhaps because they don’t seek the limelight, they’re referred to as “shadowy figures”, and attacked relentlessly from the highest public offices in the United States, including the Senate floor, and the Presidency itself.
Private citizens, using their wealth, and right to free speech, to advocate causes they believe in (causes that up until recently, were embraced as mainstream values in America) are routinely smeared by opponents, and treated as the most evil, corrosive influence in modern politics. Do the Kochs deserve to be characterized by their opponents as pure Evil? The idea is laughable.
