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.”
