The more things change…

The other day I wrote a post about another leftard that was trying too hard to excuse the evils of communism so they could convince us that what the left is doing these days is for the better, and as I pointed out then, these people are so full of shit that it surprises me they can come up for breath through the bullshit. The left keeps pretending they are the for the little people and that they care, that were it not for the brave actions of the democratic party stalwarts the republicans would side with the rich and rape everyone stupid, but the truth is that when you want special favors, especially as a big company, you go to the left for them. Don’t take my word for it: you don’t get more left leaning than Comcast, a leader in what amounts to a monopolistic industry that because of its incestuous relationship with government manages to rip us all off, and they know whom to buy their favors from.

Comcast, which employs more than 100 lobbyists spent almost $19 million last year on lobbying activities. Its president and CEO, Brian L. Roberts, is a golf buddy of President Obama’s, and a Democratic donor who has contributed thousands of dollars not only to the president’s campaigns, but also to the Democratic Party of Pennsylvania, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the DNC Services Corporation, and to Steny Hoyer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bob Casey. Roberts’ executive vice president, David Cohen, is a former aide to Democratic bigwig Ed Rendell. Cohen skirts lobbying regulations through loopholes, has raised more than $2 million for Obama since 2007, and in 2011 hosted a DNC fundraiser at which the president called him “friend.” Cohen has visited the White House 14 times since 2010, including two visits to the Oval Office. He attended the recent dinner for President Hollande of France.

Cohen plays a major role in the Comcast Foundation, which has disbursed more than $3 billion since 2001, primarily to “groups that serve African-Americans, Latinos, and Asians” and other segments of the Democratic coalition. You will be surprised to learn that many of the groups to whom the Comcast Foundation has donated now support the proposed merger. Of the $33 million Comcast has spent on political campaigns since 1989, more than half, or some $18 million, has gone to Democrats. Barack Obama is number one on the list of the top ten recipients of Comcast’s largesse. There are four Republicans on the list.

The party that claims to be the one of the little people would love to convince you that they are not in it for the power and the money, that they do it all, even if they are in it for the power and the money, because of altruism, but it is all horseshit. The only difference between the collectivists and the oligarchs they want to replace, or have replaced, is that they bank on the stupidity of the masses not to see through their plan. But it is the age old fight where one group of people want to take the power and wealth from those that have it. The left has managed to make what they want to do seem noble by pretending they do it to help the little guy, all the while hurting them and making them even more dependent on the left to survive. Shit, I would point out that the old feudal system or the institution of slavery are alive and well in the new world order the left has created. The only difference between then and now is that so many are willing participants and have no clue.

    Fuck Comcast.

    Being stuck with them for years while they gouge on prices in collusion with the satellite companies blows. Seriously, they price themselves within a nickle of each other because they know you really have no other options and keep telling us that we want shitloads of suck-ass channels we never watch.
