Considering how much influence the Koch brothers and their network of GOP mega-donors have over American politics, there is surprisingly very little discussed about their actual policy initiatives. This is by design. In many ways, their perspectives shield them from scrutiny by the American people because neither ideological side wants the people to know much about them.
Progressives rail against them because they back the Republicans, but they do little to expose their policies because in many ways, Democratic insiders quietly appreciate the policies they force as primary benefactors to GOP candidates. They are very much in favor of open borders, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and criminal justice reform. Their influence can be attributed to the First Step Act getting passed by Congress and signed by the President.
Conservatives complain about them, but their ability to get and keep Republicans in office makes it very rare for any GOP lawmakers to say anything against them. It takes people like Tucker Carlson and news outlets like NOQ Report to get the word out to conservatives.
The reality about the Koch brothers is their policies and initiatives are mostly Libertarian with a sprinkling of authoritarianism on top. This is why they’re in favor of the type of digital censorship being used against many conservatives on social media sites. Their best friend is ignorance. They’re strongest when they’re in the shadows. They cannot afford for social media to be used to expose them for what they really are.
This is important as we push forward with the American Conservative Movement. We will fight socialists in the Democratic Party, but we must also fight the corruption that has infiltrated the Republican Party as well. The Koch brothers are at the center of this corruption and work daily to subvert conservatism.
Thanks to Tucker Carlson and other courageous conservatives willing to speak out against the Koch brothers, we may finally be able to spread the word about the people who make much of the GOP moderate and even progressive.
We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.
