Major union drops donations to United Negro College Fund.


There really is no one more compassionate on the planet than liberal progressive socialists. We all know their loving hearts reach into the depths of mankind to make a better way for all. And here we have another example of the compassion from a subset of those loving progressive socialists: a major American union. You might recall a previous report here (external - login to view) about the generosity of the Koch Brothers who funded a major scholarship endeavor in support of the United Negro College Fund — because “a mind is a terrible thing to waste.” What a shame it doesn’t apply to progressives.

According to Buzzfeed (external - login to view), “One of the nation’s largest public-sector unions is severing its ties with the United Negro College Fund because the group accepted donations from the Koch brothers and its president spoke at a Koch-funded summit.”

“In a letter sent Tuesday, AFSCME President Lee Saunders wrote that the UNCF has taken actions “deeply hostile” to public employees, which he considers a “profound betrayal of the ideals of the civil rights movement,” and that the union will end its relationship with UNCF.””

See, the progressive socialists in AFSCM leadership have so much compassion for their public employees, they’re willing to end their support to deserving young black men and women — and let their minds go to waste. After all, those mean, horrible, anti-American Koch Brothers represent all that is wrong in America.

Buzzfeed says “Saunders cited the UNCF’s decision to accept a $25 million grant from Koch Industries, Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation as a reason for the split, as well as the decision by UNCF President Michael Lomax to speak at a summit hosted by the Kochs in California. The Kochs have donated tremendous amounts of money to advance conservative political causes in recent years, as well as well as various philanthropic efforts.”

I know.. All I'm saying is that there will not be a lot of traffic on either one as the meat of this issue is entirely indefensible, they will fall off the grid soon enough..

Both of the OP titles are spot-on by the way

My goodness!.. You absolutely sound like you are in a fantastic mood.

I'm guessing that it's a beautiful day to boot.

Seeing how you're in a great mood, what's the chance that you get together a selfie of you in the new bikini and post it here?

it's sunny and 24° with the relative humidity only at 50%..it's awesome weather today

lmao at the bikini request...if you want me to share my beautiful mood and have you stay happy, the last thing you would want to do would be to see me in an itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini, ...you'd be on your way to emerg with a self inflicted fork stab to the eye and a need for ongoing couselling due to trauma...lol

I doubt I'd make it in time with the 4 hr flight to T.O. and consequent transit to your locale.... But don't let that stop you from getting some pics of the bikinis and posting them tomorrow!

If the Koch brothers are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts then what's the problem? It helps people out.

But if they're doing it to somehow buy influence, then pulling out your own donation would only increase that influence. So it's counter-productive.

As for charges of racism, I bet most of you aren't even in favour of the United Negro College Fund existing. It's a form of Affirmative Action, which according to the conservative worldview is "reverse racism". Keep in mind that to a logical person "reverse racism" means not racism but to a conservative it means imagined slights against white people. According to your own worldview, the Koch brothers funding this is racist and the union discontinuing funding is correcting past racism.

According to the current time stamps, this thread was open for less than an hour before you declared the silence from the left deafening.

So really, you just wanted to say something stupid about the left, but couldn't be bothered to wait for it to have anything to do with reality.
