Where's the outrage over political donations?

I initially posted this in November but based on a particularly ridiculous article in the Journal Times about the hate left showing up to protest a Van Wanggaard fund raiser plus some particularly idiotic rants about evil right wing money in the comments of said story I thought I would bump this post and provide a reminder.  Those occutards should get a job.

********************************************************************
$4,126,208 - Poliical giving by Peter Buttenweiser.  Almost every penny to left wing politicians and causes.

$8,925,740 - Political giving by Steve Bing.  Almost every penny to left wing politicians and causes.

$11,114,028 - Political giving by Haim Saban.  Almost every penny to left wing politicians and causes.

What do these three people have in common?  They are buying huge political influence and you have likely never heard of them.

$1,082,523 - Political giving by Steven Spielberg.  Almost every penny to left wing politicians and causes.

If you have not heard of Spielberg you have been living under a rock for the last few decades.  He is but one example of Hollywood elites that give huge dollars to left wing causes and for the most part escape scruitiny for doing so.

$2,250,227 - Political giving by David Koch.  Mostly going to Conservative / Libertarian causes. 

$378,570 - Political Giving by Charles Koch.  Mostly going to Conservative / Libertarian causes.

So what do we have here?

Examples of rich people giving to liberal causes that most people have never heard of. 

Meanwhile the left always has to have someone to vilify and they have turned their focus onto the EVIL Koch brothers.  If Koch money is so bad than why isn't Saban money bad?  Why have you never heard of the evil Buttenweiser spreading millions around to buy political influence?

If corporate money is so bad, how come union money  is pure and holy?  That's the same reason you have never heard of these examples.  Any money that favors the left will escape media scruitiny and conservatives are more geared towards attacking failed liberal policies than those who support those policies.

So the next time someone brings up Koch money you might want to respond by asking them about Haim Saban.  But don't mention George Soros, because that's too easy.
