Billionaire Conservative Activist David Koch Is Dead, And The Internet Celebrates

Billionaire Conservative Activist David Koch Is Dead, And The Internet Celebrates August 23, 2019

Good riddance: David Koch, a deplorable man who used his vast wealth to hurt millions of Americans, is dead. And the Internet celebrates.

Koch, a right-wing conservative pig who spent a fortune trying to deny Americans access to health care, education, and a clean environment, is dead at the age of 79.

The New York Times reports:

David H. Koch, who amassed a multibillion-dollar fortune with his brother Charles from the corporate behemoth they ran and then joined him in pouring their riches into a powerful right-wing libertarian movement that helped reshape American politics, has died. He was 79.

David Koch is survived by his brother, Charles Koch. Their father, Fred Koch, was a vicious white supreamcist who made the family fortune building oil pipelines for Russian dictator Joseph Stalin. Raw Story reports:

The brothers inherited the seed money for their holdings from their father Fred Koch, who made his first fortune building oil pipelines for the Russian dictator Joseph Stalin in the 1930s. Back in the states, Fred Koch supported racial segregation and white supremacist groups like the John Birch Society. 

David Koch, like his father, was a moral monster, a despicable human being who used his vast fortune to fund countless conservative causes that caused real harm to his fellow Americans and the environment. His nefarious actions and character did not go unnoticed at the time of his death. 

The following is a sample of the reactions via Twitter:

Bottom line: David Koch, a deplorable man who used his vast wealth to hurt millions of Americans, is dead.
