Hated (by liberals) Kock brothers getting death threats

Wait, I thought liberals were the compassionate folks and conservatives the hateful ones. Check out this report from the Wichita Eagle:

Charles Koch, his brother and employees have in recent months been getting death threats, hundreds of obscenity-laced hate messages, and harassment from some far left-wing groups, Koch said on Thursday.


On Thursday, Charles Koch authorized employees to reveal the contents of hundreds of e-mails that the Kochs and employees have received in the last year, some of them containing death threats. “I hope you all DIE,” one e-mail, received last year, said. “You people are ruining our country, and all for $$$.” “Choose your expiration Date, Brothers…” said another. “The Koch brothers will DIE!!!!!” said another.

There were hundreds more — some from Wisconsin, where the Kochs were accused of aiding Gov. Scott Walker in his disputes against unions. Most of them were signed with what appear to be real names, many contained obscenities, and some Koch employees said these messages had made them nervous.

    With the help of the Bush court, these two men have utterly hijacked the American political process. Does it take a "liberal" to defend our rights, or can anyone play? Death threats? Why aren't they already dead?

    By the way, you know you spelled their name "Kock" in the headline--right? What are you, some sort of perverted liberal commie?
