Defending the Koch brothers, Dem. Sen. Joe Manchin acknowledges democrat campaign startegy of "demonization and hypocrisy."

Those paying attention at the local level have been well aware of this for over a year.

The media lynching of Commissioners Madore and Mielke... the geometric increase in the 2 decades-long effort at lynching Sen. Don Benton... these are all signs of that.

Local democrats such as Craig Pridemore, Betty Sue Morris, the hapless Maureen Winningham, Mike Briggs, are all about civility when it's aimed at any of them.

Meanwhile, they lie, exaggerate, obfuscate and pound on the commissioners like a drum, even, like C rag, wearing out kneepads to the daily democratian, which in the past Pridemore and Morris have publicly bad mouthed, when it goes on to serve their causes...

... and Pridemore is the worst of the lot, with his part of the lynching party fizzling out months ago.

Demonization is what the democratian lives for.  Brancaccio's jihad against conservatives is rank partisanship and leftist hackery at it's finest.  It's cements him as a journalistic buffoon.  While independent weeklies such as the Willamette Week actually commit journalism, Brancaccio is too busy censoring, too busy leaving out or twisting the facts, too busy ignoring the abuse of the people by his fellow leftists and far too busy attacking those wise enough oppose him.

Sen. Manchin acknowledges this is the leftist plan at the national level.  Instead of Madore, Mielke or Benton, its the demonization of the Koch brothers.  But the tactics, the hypocrisy, the lies, the indifference to the truth used by democrats everywhere.  And when it comes to demonization, Brancaccio and our local left know no peers.

Dem senator defends the Koch brothers

Sen. Joe Manchin on Thursday strongly defended the Koch brothers from attacks by fellow Democrats, saying the wealthy and politically active businessmen are taxpaying Americans who are creating jobs.

“People want jobs. You don’t beat up people. I mean, I don’t agree with their politics or philosophically, but, you know, they’re Americans, they’re doing— paying their taxes,” Manchin said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

“They’re not breaking the law. They’re providing jobs,” he added.

When asked whether Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s attacks on the Koch brothers “helps or hurts the cause for the country and the Congress,” the West Virginia senator said it’s people in the middle that need to be reached.

“If you’re trying to rally the base, the bases have already been rallied. The right and left bases have been rallied,” Manchin said. “It’s us in the middle that have to start making something happen here in Washington to move this country forward.”

Machin, who also served as governor of West Virginia, said harsh rhetoric from either side does little to help the country.
