'No justice, no peace!' they chanted
Libertarian philanthropist David Koch has passed away at the age of 79. He, along with his brother Charles Koch, was one of the most reviled individuals in American politics among journalists and other left-wing activists, even when they were doing ostensibly uncontroversial things such as donating large amounts of money to a hospital.
In March 2014, liberal activist groups staged a protest outside the planned site of the David H. Koch Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. The center was funded in part by a $100 million donation from the man Democratic billionaire and presidential candidate Tom Steyer once described as "famously evil."
The libs were so mad that even New York City Councilman Ben Kallos showed up at the rally to denounce David Koch for financing a new hospital center in his district.
.@BenKallos: David Koch is against affordable healthcare. Why is his name on a hospital? #stopKoch #womensday
At one point, union leader Minerva Solla took the mic and declared, "If there ain't gonna be no justice, there ain't gonna be no peace!" It's a phrase often shouted at gatherings of angry libs, but one that becomes especially poignant when used to decry the existence of a hospital.
Added context: In 2012, former President Bill Clinton was paid $225,000 to give a speech at the Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C., the same year the hospital laid off 300 employees. "No disrespect to Bill Clinton, but that money couldve gone a long way and been put to better use," union leader Dan Fields Jr. said at the time.
As a result of David Koch's philanthropy, his name adorns a number of prominent sites throughout New York City, including the David H. Koch Theater at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, a beloved institution among liberal élites.
The ‘supposed’ conservative soros wanna be.
Unless that $100 mil went to compensate victims of illegal aliens, he deserves no credit whatsoever for the donation of his ill-gotten gains.
Cutting of their noses to spite their faces. I was no fan of Koch, but the pure hatred from the Left is disgusting.
The departed David Koch was a compromised RINO and a Trump critic.
Not even a wild field flower of condolence from the rabid, haters on the left?
The Left should love the Kochs.

Koch donated millions to help sick people. Soros donates money to buy off corrupt DAs.
When one of their hated enemies does something good, the left turns it into evil. They never give credit where it is due.
Shows how distorted and perverted their minds are.
He was a pretend conservative,NeverTrumper and rather libtarded.
