Right-wing plutocrats try to rebrand in face of rising support for progressive policies

Right-wing plutocrats try to rebrand in face of rising support for progressive policies

But the Koch empire keeps funding the destruction of the climate.

Stand Together has a redesigned websitefeaturing the awkward slogan, “Greater Your Good,” which is reminiscent of First Lady Melania Trump’s slogan for her anti-cyber bullying campaign, “Be Best.” Just as her campaign has been widely mocked because her husband cyber-bullies people almost every day, the Koch rebranding is laughable considering their role as the biggest funders of climate science disinformation — as well as efforts to gut climate action and clean energy programs at both a national and state level.

Facebook’s newest ‘fact checkers’ are Koch-funded climate deniers

So it’s even more absurd that the website’s front page promises in large letters, “If you’re working to solve a huge problem in our country, we want to help.”

They don’t want to help solve the most significant problem facing the country and the world. Quite the reverse, the repeated efforts by the Kochs and their network to smother climate science, kill clean air and climate regulations, and thwart the renewable energy revolution are making the problem much worse and speeding the nation and the world on a path to self-destruction.

A new name, website, and slogan can’t change that reality.
