Conservatives defend BlackRock, one of the most corrupt financial institutions in the world, and wonder why they’re losing ground–it’s basically a business model based on losing and fake outrage that these anti social opinions are hilariously unpopular https://t.co/oxvg9Qf591 https://t.co/jRljLtsdS1— Pedro L.

We’re open to the idea of class politics and ending the Second Gilded Age. We just don’t see that happening in the Democratic Party which has become the PMC party.
“Billionaire Charles Koch’s foundation has bankrolled three conservative legal groups leading the court battle to eliminate prohibitions against tenant evictions during the COVID-19 outbreak. At the same time, Koch’s corporate empire has suddenly stepped up its real estate purchases during the pandemic — including making large investments in real estate companies with a potential financial interest in eliminating eviction restrictions.
In the last few months, the Texas Public Policy Foundation, the Pacific Legal Foundation, and the New Civil Rights Alliance have been pushing federal courts to strike down the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) eviction moratorium, which is designed to protect millions of Americans from being thrown out of their homes during the pandemic. The groups have so far won two rulings. …”
In a nutshell, this is the problem with the Republican Party.
The governing ideology of the party is antiquated and deeply unsuited to the current Republican coalition. Conservative institutions are funded by libertarian billionaires like Charles Koch whose values, interests and politics are out of sync with both the Republican base and the wider electorate. Finally, the politicians are owned by these people and their staffers come from these institutions.
The typical Republican voter is engaging in backlash politics and voting against the Democrats because of toxic culture war issues, not for Charles Koch or Ben Shapiro’s ideology.
