What are you gonna do if you’ve got a billion or so dollars to spend on a big presidential election, and you’re stuck with this bunch of unelectable losers?
If you’re the Koch brothers, and the main “horse” you were betting on to win the GOP nomination (Scott Walker) was so incredibly unpalatable that even your many millions of dollars couldn’t make him seem less diabolical, you change it up in hopes of covering more bases. And by “bases,” I mean voters and in this case, the Koch brothers are trying to cast their slimy, prickly net over Latinos here in the US. They’ve found the perfect foil, or “beard,” in Daniel Garza and the Libre Initiative. I’m not going to go into what makes this guy tick except to say that it’s a textbook case of (initial) political conviction getting too close to the gravitational pull of Opportunism 101.
Kind of creepy, if you ask me, that he can go from this, which is cookie cutter Koch brothers operative:
to this, when he wants to connect with fellow Latinos:
Here is a PBS NewsHour segment about him. If you go to about the 4 minute mark, you’ll see where Garza is selling out his own people. i360, which is the Koch brothers own data mining, world domination tool, is just slithering around the Internet, sucking up personal information, which, I can say with 100% certainty, is not going to end well for most of us. Garza, and his Libre Initiative, feeds the Kochtopus any and all of the Latino community’s personal data, when they can get their hands on it, by masquerading (in swing states) as innocuous help with tax returns, as English language classes, and as driver’s education courses.
Like a modern-day Medusa, all I can say to Latinos is LOOK AWAY from “it” or you’ll be handing a little bit of your soul to these demonios.
