Koch Front Group President: “Poetic Justice” For Trump to Die of Wuhan Virus

The real ‘deplorables’ are in the beltway.

Published

The President of a Koch-funded group that advocates for the interests of major tech companies questioned whether there would be any greater “poetic justice” than the possibility of President Trump dying of the Chinese coronavirus.

Berin Szoka is the President of ‘Tech Freedom,’ a Koch-funded group founded primarily to advocate against proposals to regulate and rein back major Silicon Valley tech companies.

Szoka’s comments came in the light of reports that Congressman Matt Gaetz had been exposed to an individual who attended the CPAC conference who has since been diagnosed with the Chinese Coronavirus. Gaetz traveled with President Trump on Air Force One on Monday before learning of his contact with the individual, and some brought up the distant possibility that Gaetz is infected with the disease and could’ve transmitted it to President Trump and the White House staff.

Szoka went on to apologize for his since-ratioed and deleted tweet on Monday night, stating that he wasn’t seriously saying that the prospect of President Trump dying of coronavirus would be a good thing.

Szoka isn’t the first liberal to dream about their perceived political enemies dying of the virus. A Denver city councilwoman claimed she was being ‘sarcastic’ when retweeting a proposal to become infected with the virus before attending Trump rallies last week.

Szoka is a major lobbyist for the political and economic interests of Silicon Valley monopolies such as Google, Facebook and YouTube. It’s worth questioning if the behemoth media platforms he works for actually share his callous attitude towards the notion of his political opponents dying of the lethal and dangerous disease.

Amazon Updates App Icon After People Complain That It Reminded Them of Adolf Hitler

The left is obsessed with Nazis.

Published

Amazon has changed the logo of its smartphone app after people said that it reminded them of Adolf Hitler.

The original logo (on the left in the image above) depicted a piece of blue tape above the classic smile arrow. Amazon introduced it in January to replace the image of a shopping cart.

Some people—presumably leftists, because no one else is as obsessed with Nazis as them—claimed on Twitter that the combination of the smile and the tape looked too much like Hitler’s toothbrush mustache.

This is the second time in recent days that leftists have seen Nazi-related imagery where there is none. Over this past weekend Twitter blew up after some claimed that CPAC’s stage setup resembled the Odal rune. Aside from the ridiculousness of the idea that CPAC intentionally shaped it like the Odal rune, the rune is not a Nazi symbol per se. The Scandinavians of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages used runes as letters of their alphabet. The Odal rune only became a symbol after a couple of SS divisions appropriated it as such.

Back in June Big League Politics reported how Facebook cited “Nazi symbolism” as an excuse to justify removing Trump campaign ads that attacked Antifa:

Facebook has censored political advertisements from President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the Trump campaign targeting the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.

The social media giant is claiming that the ads were guilty of “violating our policy against organized hate.” They claim that the campaign was using symbols from Nazi Germany, which is not quite accurate.

“Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol,” a spokesperson from Facebook wrote.

[…]

However, the Trump campaign pointed out in response to the censorship that the inverted red triangle symbol is “widely used by antifa.” A fact check confirms that the Trump campaign is telling the truth about the symbol’s use.

Leftists like to condemn conservatives who dabble in “conspiracy theories” yet at the same time claim to see Nazis and Nazism everywhere they look. Very deluded behavior.
