Koch Brothers Team Up With George Soros, Patreon and Airbnb to Fight Online Extremism
Observer ^ | 06/11/19 | Davis Richardson

The Koch Brothers are teaming up with tech companies, universities and other fellow billionaires to combat online extremism.

On July 17, the After Charlottesville Project will host its second summit in San Francisco, California. Founded in the aftermath of the deadly 2017 white supremacist attacks in Virginia, the conference brings together political and business leaders to discuss solutions for curbing political terrorism. While last year’s gathering in Missouri involved grassroots and city response initiatives, the focus of this year’s summit will involve the “private tech sector” and “best practices on the fight against hate and extremism online,” according to the event’s press release.

Representatives for the Charles Koch Institute and the Anti-Defamation League will join executives from tech companies which currently include Eventbrite, Mozilla, Pinterest, Patreon and Airbnb.

“Now more than ever is the time to create communities that value diversity, inclusivity and positive change,” Michael Signer, the former mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia and the founder and chair of the Communities Overcoming Extremism Project, said in a statement. “We’re excited to assemble with these forward-thinking tech leaders to explore what positive outcomes we can gain from an event full of powerful conversations.”

The Cocks are at it again.

They were a fraudulent operation from the get-go, and many of us knew. The Bush-leaguers and 5th columnists here on FR just loved them to death.

Nowadays the Bush-leaguers and 5th columnists mostly just shut their idiot mouths on FR - which is awesome and why I like posting here again.

This to me is "winning"!

The Koch Brothers have always been the money behind the Rinos.

What a collection of deep state dipshits. The Koch brothers may find themselves suffering the same fate racing towards Soros.

It was ONE death and massive attacks by antifa which is relocated in Oregon and Washington state that have nothing to do with, so called, white supremicists.

“Now more than ever is the time to create communities that value diversity, inclusivity and positive change,” Michael Signer, the former mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia

WHO appointed them the "creator of communities"?

WHY must communities value "diversity, inclusivity, and positive change"?

Who gets to DEFINE "positive change"?

What made this the "more than ever time"? Why is this the time?

What a bunch of utopian blather and pablum.

I’m hating the Koch Brothers almost as much as Soros the past couple years.

You can draw a line between this “fight extremism” and “diversity” crap straight to 1) Shut Up Whitey, 2) Sit Down Whitey, 3) Imprison Whitey and, finally, 4) Kill Whitey.

Yup, Soros/Koch Bros are the opposites sides of the same deep state coin. They were also a socially engineered conflict by the deep state, as conservatives hate Soros is matched equally of the hatred by the left of the Koch Bros.

Socially engineered conflicts kept Americans fighting each other as the deep state, behind the scenes, implemented their agenda and power over us. It’s been classic “divide and conquer” strategy over the past century.
