FreedomWorks & Beck: Everybody wins - except for our nation

2 posts / 0 new

Today on its Twitter page, FreedomWorks - the astroturf group run by Dick Armey, the former Republican leader and former lobbyist for the People's Mujahadeen of Iran, the natural gas industry, Dubai Group, Comcast, military contractors and weapons manufacturers, and numerous other corporate interests - announced that it was officially partnering with Glen Beck.

This is a brilliant business deal, which will create huge profits for both Freedomworks and Beck. Beck has the Fox platform, which has turned out most of the people for tea party events, and Freedomworks now has the database of all the tea partiers that they can hand off to Beck, who will then expose them to his advertisers. Everybody wins and makes money - except for our nation, which gets kneecapped since Beck and Dick Armey are open advocates for the interests of millionaires and billionaires and openly hostile to working people, unions, social security, medicare, and want to turn the commons over to the tender mercies of transnational corporations.

Their money comes from Koch, Scaife, Bradley, Olin and other reliable funders of right wing infrastructure including Exxon Mobil. Their goal is to take down Democratic or progressive candidates and now they'll have more money and power and a larger media platform.
